Hated_ballad

hated_balladHated_ballad is a puzzle I found on youtube that seem to be changing more and more as it moves along. Im not quite sure what they are after yet but they have done a lot of things on the web that are really weird. They said something in a puzzle when it started about being Ciacda 3301 but there was No PGP key with any of the puzzles and some of the methods seem very different to the style of the cicada puzzles. My first introduction into the puzzle was from a youtube channel commenting on one of my live streams in Hex code.

Next came a Pastebin link with the following text: “A metal controller will decide. After the radiance and noise will come peace.”

I was pretty interested in what was going on at this point so I waited to see if anything else was going to be coming up. They commented on the stream one more time with a last bit of hex code that let me to their twitter.
