Heavy Barroom Art Rock
"Rules of the Game" has some of the sophistications of Prog Rock without losing any of its dark power, displaying an impressive amount of drive and cohesion in a truly stylish bit of songwriting. Maryland's Interstellar Soul works really well together on this track, communicating between its vocals and instruments (including a rich rock violin) to lock you in to its melody and beat. Its gritty lyrics are just as strong, appropriate for either a bar-room or a rock stadium, venting against a confusing and frustrating love story.
"Rules of The Game" would be an excellent theme song for Driving offroad through the mountains
