Default 91. Monstro

This is the START OUT OF HELL & ARRIVE TO HEAVEN topic.
Let's Go to Rock 'n' Roll!!!!!!!

Monstro (10)

Well... it's an intermezzo what should have been the intro - I think. In this song we can hear where is the computer music in our world. I think this song was created by Sibelius or I don't know but it doen't seem a real orchestra. Well... truly I don't care.

This song is a masterpiece. The Spanish choir is for Mexicans (it's business) and I was really upset when I heard in an interview Meat doesn't know what about it. Well... the lyrics is the next:

You are cruel
You are not loyal
Son of evil
Is fatal
Your heart
Is a robber

Well... it's really nothing but it's mystic, pretensious and masterpiece...

My score: 10

I actually like it too...BUT:

1. It's more like an intro...not sure what it is intro to...in my opinion it interrupts the flow of the record.

2. I am absolutely positive I've heard this before...or something like this...and not one time either...in fact, it sounds suspiciously like a soundtrack to one of the commercials here on TV...

Ummm...for quality of music...8

For place on the record and originality...probably not more than 5

Agree it's a bit haunting but just seems to be stuck there with no real purpose.
Still i like it 9/10.

No real opinion on this one as it's more of an intro to Alive, I tend to rate them together so 9 out of 10.

Well, you could slap Monstro as first track on any New Wave of Dutch Gothic Metal album (think After Forever, Epica, Within Temptation etc.), and it wouldn't seem out of place.
As an intro to Alive it works, as a standalone piece I wonder what it's doing on Bat III.

7/10 (rated as a standalone piece, add half a point if you consider it part of Alive)

Now there's a thought!

Didn't like this originally, but it's really grown on me now, if I play Bat III on random though it falls out of place, needs to have Alive following it.

Monstro is the best piece of the album. It is a shame they didn't use it as a intro for the Monster is Loose. Than TMIL would be a perfect Bat song to start the new Bat adventure. I think it is awesome.
9/10 Best of Bat 3.

I give it a 6 at best, especially since it's done in Spanish, what's the point when the rest of the album is either in English or Latin. I'm with knooby its the new fiesta de pointless

not bad, but HEAVILY inspired (not to say stolen) from Karl Orff's Carmina Burana, check out music to this vid and tell me it's got nothing to do with it:
