I was listening to this and the main riff of this and the riff of Princess of the universe are very similar. Both play the power chord and slide down the fret and have screechy high souring lead behind it. Is it just me or are they very similar in music terms.

You know, you're absolutely right.

It's almost as though they are from the same album by the same band. Fascinating!

What about Flash Gordon? Lots of those songs sound the same.

Princess of the universe

LMAO

If I'm being honest, I can't hear any similarity between the two songs except for the dominating feature of Brian's stunning guitar work. I might take a better listen later.

Thats different, Thats not even an album, its shit. Two proper songs, the rest are a sound track to an even worse movie. Offcourse they will sound the same, the are part of a theme to the film.


I was being facetious. Also, I like the Flash Gordon album.
