What do you get when putting together 6 {{Awesome Aussie}}s and make them play [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly a mixture of drum and bass, electronic rock and alternative metal?]] You get the bone-breaking awesomeness that is known as Pendulum.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mg_Rx6u3Hus "The Tempest"]], the album closer to ''In Silico'', progresses from a soft bass guitar driven intro to 4 minutes of hard rock. Then the song tops it off with 2 minutes of intense Drum and Bass.

* The TitleTrack, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2sWWj9RjeQ "Hold Your Colour",]] deserves a special mention, having a rather soothing tune and hard drums and bass, accompanied by Rob Swire's quiet croon. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQkjbcNjog0 The Bipolar remix]] is no slouch, either.

"Different"]] manipulates the AmenBreak in the best way possible.

It manages to be incredibly catchy, yet sound relentless at the same time. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtY7Szd7WO4 The remix]] by Music/{{Celldweller}} manages to be just as epic.



* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GchMBkdpyf4 "Mutiny"]] is by far Pendulum's most unusual song, eschewing drum and bass for slower, but still extremely aggressive hard rock. The tempo change at the end will catch you off guard in the best way possible.

"Witchcraft"]] starts off quiet, with Swire crooning about a deceased lover, before suddenly erupting into drum and bass/alt-metal goodness.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_kM1yEcDxA "Immunize"]], featuring [[Music/TheProdigy Liam Howlett]], is the heaviest, most aggressive song Pendulum have made in their career. It does not catch a break at all, and it's absolutely glorious.

[[SopranoAndGravel The duet between Swire and Andres Friden]] only makes this song even more awesome.

* "Midnight Runner" sounds mostly the same as the studio version in the first half. The second half??? Added electric guitar and heavy synth make for a mind-''annihilating'' second half.
