If you've never checked out the band Polyphia, go watch the tracks/clips on their Youtube channel and come back. Tell me you haven't wanted to just put down your instrument and never touch it again, cos chances are you'll never hit that level of technical proficiency and musicality. Still....

More Polyphia More Polyphia

Loudwire named them as one of the top 10 instrumental bands in Rock and Metal and for good reason. They also said of this new single: "And now for something a little different.

"Playing God" is the band's first new release since 2019 and it finds the band filling the song with Spanish flavor, utilizing complex arrangements with nuevo flamenco guitars, a bit a bossa nova flair and some trap-styled rhythms to deliver something intriguing. This also marks the band's first time utilizing nylon stringed guitars as well."
