  1. 1. Coming Home - Easy one, Coming Home has the hardest riff out of the entire franchise with some of the greatest contrasts in vocals too. Screaming vocals are a lot better compared to Abacadavre, And the clean vocals are great as always but somewhat has an operatic feel with the backing vocals. Great Bridge with some amazing guitar work that flows amazingly with the rest of the song, with an outro thats addictive with that joint riffing beat with all the instruments. 

    Alone - Good song however, just feels plain and Novas vocals are at their worst here. 

    2. We All Fall Down - Catchy chorus with no intro, surprisingly. Guitar sounds very clean and in all the song works very well as a sequel to Carrion. A very good bridge as always and some of Novas better vocal performances, not much to say here, just a really well written song. A Really nice outro too.

    Dead Flowers - Just go listen to Always Running, only difference really is a solo. 

    3. Always Running - Yeah this is a masterpiece, really sold me on Malukah, Great vocal performance, this is really the first song i remember hearing references to prior songs on, which became a trend. An Amazing bridge, as always, Love the awkward note decisions by the guitar, really sounds somewhat gothic, if a gothic theme could be heard on guitar this would be it, chorus is really good when all the instruments come in. Kinda set the stage for ballads in zombies too. 

    I am the Well - Great song, get burnt out on it very quickly. Overrated imo, it really doesnt do much for me. Stormbound was the better Nova song in that game. 

    4. Carrion - Easy, a pretty unique guitar sound, we dont hear chords till the chorus, the descending hammer ons and pull offs is a very good sound thats surprisingly hard hitting, with Nova playing off them very well, this also gives the bass a chance to shine through which it does pretty well tbh. Amazing chorus with hard hitting chords and big beefy sound, lead into the bridge is fire, how it ascends into a BIG Fucking breakdown and then is tailed by a nice lead going into a very great take on the chorus. 

    Shepard of Fire - Great for the intro, just listen to Enter Sandman instead 

     

    5. Drowning - This is probably the most unique song we have had, This is pretty much an acapella until the first chorus, which makes it hit hard, drums and bass help carry the song a lot. A good solo, very surprising and delightfully so, This is basically the next step above Always Running and its great.

    Dead Ended - The intro is literal ear rape, i cant listen to it lol. 

    6. Abacadavre - Not much to say which i didnt say before but its easily the better song. 

    Undone - exists i guess 

    7. Mad Hatter - Hardest one yet but a7x kill it in this track, works well for IX and has some of Synyster Gates best solo work. seriously that solo is fucking great. M Shadows doesnt sound like a whiny bitch for once and overall its just a great composition 

    A Light from the Shore - Only good parts is the solos and the rest is just pretty meh imo

     

  2. As a musician this one shouldnt be too difficult 

     

    1. Beauty of Annihilation - How could it not be, cmon guys get the story and "lyrical meaning" out your arse and Beauty is clearly the better song. Has the most iconic intro in zombies, has the most iconic riff in zombies, has one of the catchiest chorus's and amazing vocals 

    Alone is good and has a great 80s synth hook but its too poppy for me to rank it above a classic such as Beauty.

    2. Remember Forever - This is a tough one, both are very thematically fitting for their purpose, however i have to give this to Remember Forever, The vocal work on it is magic, the backing choir is just great and the Bass really helps to drive the song forward. Ngl this gives me some sort of Christmassy ethereal feel to it which is great. 

    Snakeskin is a good song with a catchy hook but doesnt really go anywhere from that hook imo. 

    3. Abracadavra - Yeah this one is pretty easy for me, both songs have pretty big flaws imo however Abra just has so much more going on, not to mention one of the best bridge's in the entire franchise and a great contrast between the piano and guitar. This is actually one of Kevins riffs (The chorus riff) that feels like a good punch in the face. However the only downside to this song is the scream vocals, i dont feel like the contrast between the clean and scream vocals in that song is all too appealing, kinda gives me mid 2000 nu metal vibes.

     

    Nightmare is a song that the more i listen to the more i just find myself not needing to listen to again. Imo M Shadows vocals are still not great around this time for A7X and the instrumental does nothing for me with a rather underwhelming and week solo form Synister Gates which is a surprise. (Not to mention most people probably dont know this song was in Moon.) 

     

    4. 115 - Yeah without a doubt here, despite thinking 115 is the weakest out of the classic songs Where are we Going is just shit. Remember Forever imo is the better thematic song and i just find myself bored as fuck listening to it. 115 is ok i guess, its not as hard as people make it out to be and the mix really fucks over kevins lead guitar throughout the chorus and during the outro. Not to mention the really farty sounding guitars and bass that is hard to look past once you notice it. If this beats Lullaby then ive lost hope for this community lol.

     

    5. Cold Hard Cash - Yeah imo this is the better song in SOE, It has a sexy as fuck feel to it with some of the best vocal work i have ever heard from a video game soundtrack. The way you get lost in the vocals is truly magical, she brings you back and forth so much and the backing track always comes in at the perfect moment. Not to mention that its thematically linked to one character ( i think if not its definitely implied). Its just perfect 

    TG Beauty on the other hand? Is fucking dog shit. The song has the most annoying fucking wah bass beats going throughout the hole song and verse which is fucking awful, it sounds so farty and off putting its awful, not to mention the effects put on the vocals, its just so bad. Butchery of a classic imo this should never of been made, its one of the worst things ive ever heard tbh. Its so fucking dumb why would you even attempt this ? How did they think this was a good song ? 

    6. Rad your a dick for putting these songs against each other 

    Shockwave - Is honestly album quality, this song matches up against actual metal bands its that good, amazing vocal work and a guitar rhythm thats constantly changing. Not to mention that guitar lead in the pre chorus thats both descending and ascending half step arpeggios i believe ? Its honestly fucking amazing. The vocal work is amazing and the chorus is so fucking catchy without intending to be. Drums are perfect and the Bass is a great support and spine for the song. 

    Pareidolia - Wow, what a song eh ? Has some of the best verses in zombies, that vocal melody in the chorus is insanely good, not to mention the amazing lyrics and kickass drum sound. This imo is the first rhythm guitar that actually sounds unique and distinguishes itself from the rest of the classic era. That piano outro is so fucking addictive too like my god its perfect. 

    This is hard but i have to give it to Shockwave. But seriously you just made me pick between 2 kids lol. 

  3. Positives

    • Soundtrack is great like always
    • The Wild and Dungeon is easily the best edition and is fucking amazing 
    • The player model being your operator is a great touch
    • The Crab is a great meme
    • The amount of enemies from Chaos, Aether and Dark Aether is really nice
    • Opening baskets and crates
    • Other game references like the Mario machine in The Wild
       

    Negatives

    • Early areas are way too small and compact
    • Movement speed is way too slow 
    • Zombies can run faster then you (Easily noticed on the Graveyards Challenge Round)
    • Not enough 1st person drops
    • Mamaback attacking you without you shooting her 
    • Weapons are too weak and some of the upgrades are anticlimactic (Where is my Ray Gun wonderwaffe ?

  4. October 13th, 1945 – Samantha Maxis is teleported to the moon, where in panic she runs into the MPD and becomes corrupted by its power.

    image.png

    This is the beginning of a theory of mine which explains how the Primis timeline exists and the unfortunate fate of not only our heroes but the entirety of existence itself.


    The Origins outro cutscene is somewhat confusing still, 7 years later. The idea that Samantha is playing with model toys of the Ultimus crew has always intrigued me. We see that Eddie and Sam argue about who’s turn it is to take control of their game. This is oddly symbolic as there is a power struggle between Richtofen and Samantha in the events of Black Ops 1. Samantha seems somewhat reluctant to let Eddie play with her toys. This might be a physical representation of what’s going on inside the MPD. Eddie shows concern that Samantha is doing it wrong. What if she is? 

    ORIGINS REMASTERED EASTER EGG ENDING CUTSCENE - BO3 ZOMBIES CHRONICLES DLC  5 GAMEPLAY (Black Ops 3) - YouTube

    This cutscene is often overlooked when people view Black Ops 3. This cutscene may give an explanation to everything that happens during the events of the Primis story and the unfortunate reality within Black Ops 4. The event of Black Ops 3 could all just be in Samanthas head and her thoughts combined with the power of the MPD could make this event somewhat of a reality, like it has created some distant world where her mind dictates the actions and events Primis are put into. Like a game.

    This theory may take some stretch of the imagination.

     

    So, what if BO3 is all just a game. Samantha’s little game she is playing while in the MPD. It’s like a game which is made possible through the MPD. This would explain why our Primis characters have a completely separate background to our Ultimus ones. The interaction the Primis crew have with their worlds Ultimus crew is interesting and somewhat reflective of Samantha’s relationship with Ultimus.

    Richtofen

    As we know, Samantha has a deep hatred for Richtofen, she often refers to him as stupid and often shows nothing but pure hatred for the man. When Primis Richtofen kills Ultimus Richtofen, he does so without saying a word. He shoots Richtofen without even flinching. Like this man has some built up hatred inside him for his Ultimus self.

    This is very symbolic of how Samantha views Richtofen. Richtofen is killed at the Giant due to his stupidity and arrogance, exactly how Samantha views him. Not only this but he dies directly after we can assume Samantha entered the MPD, this is almost like revenge and the only time when the 2 timelines of Ultimus and Primis cross. Samantha only knows the history of Richtofen and the events of the Giant will be scarred in her mind. She can recreate that instance and kill Richtofen in exactly the way she would want to. With no remorse and mocking the man while she does it.

    Ultimus

    As previously mentioned, Samantha actually knows some sort of history with Richtofen, however she knows nothing of the other 3. This could explain why we see Ultimus in events that we have never seen before, not only that, but we see these characters in crazy out there situations which feel like they are pulled straight out of a fantasy story. This could be Samantha giving the characters a backstory so she can, well, “Kill them all” sound familiar?

    The way our characters are killed is completely different to Richtofen. Our Primis characters show sympathy and pity for Ultimus, like its somehow not their fault that they are in this situation. Maybe Samantha views the rest of Ultimus besides Richtofen in the same way. All throughout the storyline we see Ultimus Richtofen drag the rest of Ultimus around like they are his slaves, and we can only assume Samantha sees this too.


    Dr Monty  

    So, what explains Monty? This guy is literally a god within the story, like some magical higher individual way above anybody else. He is viewed as a “Magic man” sort of. However, its rather odd that he creates gobblegums and is a manufacturer. We see Dr Monty in other parts of Black Ops 3, he has chocolate bars all around the multiplayer maps.

    image.png


     

    This confirms that Dr Monty is a real individual. Dr Monty might have been a brand for years, the same way modern brands today have been around for almost a century. Maybe Dr Monty was Samantha’s favourite candy brand. She would have loved the chocolate so much that she would have been wondering who he is. Dr Monty would have always been in her life, but she would have never met the guy in person, for all we know he might not even exist.

     

    This is why I believe Dr Monty is this all powerful almost hidden person within the story. Samantha might of seen him as “the wonderful, magical Dr Monty”. He would have been a child’s icon. “don’t worry Dr Monty will protect you”. Monty is how Samantha views the real-life person who she thinks is real. In her eyes he is some magical individual who creates all these amazing delights for her to eat.

     

     

     

     

     

    Keeper/Apothicon

    One word. Lovecraft. As we already know, the appearance of the Apothicons is definitely Lovecraftian inspired. Throughout Samantha’s life Lovecraft would have been a huge topic. His work would be consumed in the same way modern films and media is consumed today. Lovecraft would have been there, and Samantha would possibly be reading it. Every story needs a villain and the Apothicons would be that villain. What’s not to say Samantha took that inspiration and included it into her own game with Primis and Monty?
     

    The Summoning Key

    The summoning key is certainly an important tool for our characters to use, it collects souls for the house. But it resembles a striking appearance to the Vril Sphere in moon.
    image.pngimage.png

    Despite the engravings being completely different the two devices serve somewhat a similar purpose. It is the Vril Sphere in Moon that allows souls to be filled up in the tubes, Specifically 4 tubes. The summoning key is designed to take in souls. Samantha would know that the Vril Sphere exists and probably used its design to imagine the summoning key. Its more grand and regal appearance may be due to a loss in translation and Samantha imagining the sphere as something more in appearance.
     

     

     



    The Kronorium
     

    This is where the game theory really takes effect. Video games work off a script. No matter what the player decides to do the end goal of the script has to be met before the game progresses. This is the Kronorium. The Kronorium is that script Primis follows throughout their journey. We know the Kronorium changes often and I believe this is the case because Samantha is just messing about with her story.

    The script theory will be pretty relevant for the rest of this theory.

    Revelations outro and NG +

    In the revelations outro our characters are sent by Monty to relive the game. He specifically shows disappointment and a disliking to the blood vials and this is what encourages Monty to send them back. This is oddly similar to anti cheat software in games. Players that exploit games or use 3rd party sources to impact the game are usually banned and their account gets terminated, from then if the player wants the game to continue, they have to start again. This is exactly what happens In Revelations and its just the game following the rules which Primis broke.



    After the player completes all the Easter Eggs, they have a free RK5 at the start of the match. This is similar to how New Game Plus (NG+) works in video games. The player can play the game with an upgrade to their character, just something to think about.

    Blood of the Dead and Richtofens reaction in Classified

    As we know our characters go to Alcatraz to collect the Blood Vials. This is obviously not what the game intends to happen as we don’t visually see this in Black Ops 3. This I believe is the game crashing with a little help of our buddy Ultimus Richtofen. Richtofen enters the MPD in moon and possibly due to no physical link between Samantha and the MPD being broken, Richtofen is put directly into Samantha’s shoes. Richtofen will most likely see what Samantha is doing and will probably try to intervene. This is Blood of the Dead. Richtofen is trying to ruin Samantha’s perfect game most likely out of spite. This is symbolic as now we see Samantha’s “good” Richtofen die.

    Victis are also in blood in the chambers and we here Sam talking in game. While Richtofen is in the MPD he would still have that connection with that crew in the real world. So he has probably projected the characters into the story.

    A game is instructed to crash if the code is broken and the script is messed with or can no longer progress. I feel that this is where everything goes wrong and the events of BO4 take place. We know the power of the MPD is powerful and now the mental link between Samantha and the MPD is gone, the MPD will have nowhere to project Samantha’s story. So in an attempt to keep on projecting that story, the MPD brings Primis into the real world.

    This is resembled with the rifts that Primis use in blood. These rifts are blue and different to the one Richtofen uses in Shadows of Evil. Maybe the rift is the way the MPD transports our characters between dimensions. The rifts the characters use in Blood maybe the MPD’s way of a buggy texture or a broken asset and when the characters go through these rifts it brings them into the real world.

    image.png

    Ultimus Richtofens reaction to seeing his Primis self is “Scheisse”. This might not be because he is seeing his younger self. This might be because he realises, he has fucked up and brought these characters into the real world. And in turn, he knows what he has done.

     

    Black Ops 4 and Tags Ending.

    Now obviously Nikolai came through the rift with the Kronorium, which still has the script the game has, and the game is now scripted to crash. This leads us to Tag. Where Victis ran through the rifts in Alcatraz to come into the real world. This version of Victis are basically duplicates of the Black Ops 2 Victis. This would explain how they get from being what they thought was dead to Tag. Richtofen preserved them in the game, which has now leaked into the real world. 


    Maxis was able to make a way for Samantha to leave the game as the MPD basically made a failsafe just in case that happened. It would only be logical that the game was made to protect Samantha at all costs. So, Samantha knows what is happening but goes along with it as it is part of her story which she is living. Nikolai and the Primis crew are still following the Kronorium which is now instructed to shut down the game. Things from the game have bled through into the real world due to the crash. In this process the Apothicon code might have been corrupted and that’s why they are in pain in Tag. And now because of the MPD the games assets are mixed with the real world.

    So, I believe that instead of closing the Aether and the multiverse. Nikolai has unintentionally destroyed the entirety of reality itself. As he wouldn’t know any better. From their perspective they have jumped through so many worlds, in game, that he would just think he is on his next/ final step of the adventure.
