That’s what we used to do a lot during English at the University, writing essays. They do help form one’s thoughts into a cohesive logical piece.OMG. That's an essay
I enjoy a lot of different kind of music but those that I don’t like I hate with a passion.I just enjoy most kinds of music.
I like Enigma.I don't judge, I like Michael Bolton
Indeed.As for everything else, we must agree to disagree
And I was with you 100% until this.I did see Samurai as a chrome/hard rock band, mostly because they are described as a hard, fast rock band, but hey, how it goes.
I did like the original lyrics more, though. Seemed more Cyberpunk.
I think the old version must remain gone in order for the new vision to flourish
I really like this idea.To make all people happy, they can put the old version as a "cover". It's been 50 years since the track was recorded and someone covered it in a different style.
We dont know if they both are in the game. I think it would be quite fun if the music progressed through the game, they could start with some depressing stuff and siowly turn into more inspiring etc. Radio statitons gotta be on "live" if you know what I mean, music/bands are huge deal in Cyberpunk.To make all people happy, they can put the old version as a "cover".

How did I get that, its because i have heard around 10 to 15 rappers sing in that specific way, of course this was around year 2000 when i went exploring into the rap genre, how did i get into rap it was of course with eminen, and sadly i went looking to see what else i could find, and at the time it was not so easy as it is today, yeah some rappers were very nice and the melodies were fantastic others, well lets just summarize and said they had issues.Out of curiosity...how did you get "rap" out of the 2019 version?
Samurai is just one band, theres lots of other music too, maybe other bands too. Witcher 3 had about 40 songs, I think I read somewhere Cyberpunk has over 100 tracks.I also ended up exploring a lot of other genres before, rock has always been my favorite, sadly will this convince you that my point it's right, most probably it will not, why, because it is a matter of taste and really if the fellas at CDPR goes for the screaching singer i will turn off the music from the game and play without music, it would not be the first game i do this about, so at the end of the day, the only thing i can do is just to show my support for the old song and hope that the people at CDPR change their decision and at least put the old song into the game, so at the end of the day my post is not about trying to prove anybody wrong, is more of showing my support for the old song and ask CDPR to please add it into the game.
I agree, tho, it's still pretty nice they asked Refused to make the song, rather than a "cool kid" band that'll disapear in 2years.That being said, it still sounds "good enough" for me. No doubt there will be an enormous variety of music in the game to suit everyone. If enough people want a copy of the 2018 version, I'm sure CDPR will make it available somewhere.
Well... That's hardcore (punk) for you.I liked the old one much better. It had something that the new one lacks totally "Pacing." I know is supposed to rally people in to rebellion but the best thing would had been having a crescendo that in the end would boring the rage and the scream.
The new one is just someone screaming at the microphone it has not charisma at all.
I get your point, but you're talking from a pure "musical" perspective.Take Marylin Manson as example. In his songs there is always a crescendo than then evolves in screams and yelling.
To be brutally honest, I completely agree with this. DMC 5 got the deathcore band Suicide Silence to do a soundtrack for the game and it was poorly received by fans. Bands "directed" to make music for video games will never be as good as the ones they make for themselves. The 2019 ver. fits great for a punks-storm-Arasaka kind of scene. But still, the composition felt kind of rushed probably due to the fact, well.. it's a whole Samurai EP in just one year. I'll be content cause I'm confident they'll put it in the perfect context anyway.Neither version is great. The 2018 version is completely inappropriate for the context, the lore dictates the song should (logically) be aggressive and punk sounding. The 2019 version fits, but you can tell it was made for a video game.
There is no faking authenticity when it comes to music, especially with more emotional and extreme genres like punk and metal, these "pretend" songs will always sound flat and uninspired compared to "honest" expressions of emotions like pain and anger.
Suicide Silence are my fav deathcore band and I had no idea they worked on DMC5 lol Then again, I haven't really followed their work post Mitch. I haven't played the game yet either, but it looks cool.To be brutally honest, I completely agree with this.

I expect Cyberpunk's underground to be more spiritual to be honest. Poor and people out of their luck have nothing else left than their faith. if you are brutal and full of anger I think Corps, and Gangs have room for you.I mean, take "our" world, and how the underground is.
Take "Cyberpunk"'s world; in 2077, a shitty world slowly dying, and imagine how brutal and "not giving a fuck" the underground culture would be.
I guess it would be pretty brutal and nasty.
You don't want to sing about flowers and make cute creshendos when you live in a dumpster and starve to death haha.
