“If this isn’t metal, then I don’t want to be in this industry. You could put this against any current band, and it would still feel heavier than anything they were doing.
“It starts out with the same slow pace of For Those About To Rock, but Queen slowed it down a couple of clicks more. It travels a lot of ground and is completely through-composed. There are no parts that repeat similarly. There might be sections that repeat slightly, but the turnarounds are always different and always modulating. It’s incredibly complicated. I think it’s a guitar masterpiece.
“There’s so much to draw from the world of Queen and Brian May, but to me, this song has some of their most interesting moments. It’s a real epic.”
