Match 62

SEMI FINAL

 

STOCKHOLM SYNDROME

 

v

 

HYSTERIA

 

 

 

 

The Second Semi is an All-Absolution affair, which somewhat represents the strength of the album. Stockholm Syndrome has destroyed all in it's path so far, and looks unstoppable at the moment. Can Hysteria end it's run?

 

Match Preview:

 

STOCKHOLM SYNDROME

 

A past winner of a song tournament, Stockholm Syndrome is a proven giant. A staple live song for many years and featuring one of the most distinguishable riffs written this decade (a bit of a theme among the tournament favourites), Stockholm Syndrome looks virtually unstoppable.

 

Path so far:

defeated EXO-POLITICS 104-11

defeated CAVE 107-23

defeated NEW BORN 90-54

defeated MAP OF THE PROBLEMATIQUE 87-50

defeated EXOGENESIS 117-68

 

HYSTERIA

 

The monsterous bassline and epic guitar solo are Hysteria's key strengths coming into this match, having narrowly defeated Showbiz in the last match. A win seems unlikely but not impossible to progress to the final of the tournament.

 

Path so far:

defeated INVINCIBLE 117-28

defeated RESISTANCE 97-25

defeated DEAD STAR 78-54

defeated MUSCLE MUSEUM 88-45

defeated SHOWBIZ 84-73

Hysteria does it for me, narrowly. Both very, very amazing songs. Aww heck maybe I Should have voted SS. Too hard to decide proper, but my vote went to Hysteria!

I like both songs.

 

But Hysteria wins it for me. There's nothing about that song that I don't like.

Agreed. Absolution is a great album and these are both excellent songs. But I'm going with the minority and throwing my vote in for Hysteria.

 

EDIT: I just read that back. I am not voting for Hysteria just because it's the underdog. That guitar solo is amazing. And the bass line....wow.

Both two of my favourite songs, but Stockholm Syndrome does more for me than Hysteria.

Hmm, not voting this time around. The two songs are way too much alike. It's pretty much impossible to choose between them head-to-head.

Hysteria is boring for me. I guess I played it too much.

I've played both songs an insane number of times, but I still love them. I went off SS for a short time, but now I'm back into it again, and Hysteria...I still love it, I just don't love it quite as much as I first did.

Piss off. Kthxbai.

Why did I vote for SS in the Exo vs SS match...:facepalm:

Shame on you! :phu:

 

I am still annoyed that SS beat Exogenesis, however I can't even pretend that Hysteria is half as good as SS... it really isn't.
