Anyone interested in an Iron Maiden survivor? I didn't see one in the OP, so I assume it'll be fine, but I'll wait for someone to say. I can start it at any time, and probably would only wait 2 days per round.

Zeltar always runs the Iron Maiden survivor every year.

Noted. What particularly "famous" (for this board, not necessarily major critical acclaim) aren't usually done then?

Well, Zeltar always does Metallica and Iron Maiden. tri.ad always does Rush. Splent always does Dream Theater.
I can't remember who, but we usually have a steady person for Porcupine Tree and one for Pain of Salvation as well. And I do the Thrice one.
I dunno, if you suggest a few ideas for survivors, I'll tell you which ones can be done now.

Slough Feg is one of my favorite bands ever but apparently no one else here listens to them  :\

Black Sabbath? Judas Priest? Megadeth? I'd be up for any of those.

Would anyone object to a "DT's Shortest Songs Survivor", taking the shortest song from each album? The list would, obviously, include:
Status Seeker
Wait For Sleep
The Silent Man
Hell's Kitchen
Through My Words
Disappear
Vacant
I Walk Beside You
Forsaken
Wither

I chose "Disappear" over "War Inside My Head" as it seems we're treating SDOIT as one song in many of these Survivors, so that being the case, "Disappear" would be the shortest song on the album.

It's also interesting to note the general atmosphere and feeling and emotion in many of these songs, and they happen to end up sounding similar in those respects.

-Marc.
ATTENTION - I am currently taking a hiatus from running any Survivors at the moment,
 but feel free to check out others' that are running in the Polls/Survivors Forum!!! Maybe in the coming months, I'll start up again with a different band if there is interest...

Yeah, I'll chalk it up for August. But, I'd like to wait until at least one of the other DT ones is done. Once the Power Game or Closing Song survivor is finished, I'll let you start.

If Wait for Sleep doesn't win that I will be disappoint.

I don't think P/S needs a moderator per se.

This sort of organization is nice though to avoid a million survivors coming up at once

Yeah, I sort of unofficially mod it. As in, I keep the board organized and distill the occasional argument.
And yeah, the organization is what I was going for when I started this.

To be officially official: I will of course be starting up Symphony X after Genesis is finished. Actually, I think I'd like to hand the reins over to someone after We Can't Dance so i'm not starting it in October :-\

If you can't find anyone to run it, I'll take over. I wouldn't be able to vote, not knowing those albums.

Looks like I would have to start the Shadow Gallery survivor from scratch, the old threads are deleted, which sucks because I wanted to see if it picked up after their first album.

Well, do the first album again. We really didn't get very far last time.

I'd like to ask your opinion on something before the final round of my Closing Song survivor begins:

Should I keep the poll open for longer because it's the final?

I see no reason why you can't. It is your survivor after all.
It seems to be getting a good size of participants, so my personal recommendation would be to extend it a day or so.
Granted, we all know Octavarium is going to win ;)

Some of us were looking into getting a Tool survivor started. I'm not sure who will run it though, because I'm still doing the In Flames survivor.

Let me know when you find someone. It's been about a year or so since the last Tool survivor, so now would be a fine time to start one up again.

Well, you are still running the In Flames one...
But if you think you can run 2 survivors, go right ahead.
Devin Townsend and Coheed are winding down, so I'll put you down for late August. It'll give you some time to move ahead in your In Flames survivor before you bring the second one on.
Also, I will be taking part in the Tool voting :tup

I'll run it if BlackFloyd would take back his Opeth survivor. Doesn't look like that'll happen.
But, if you cant find anyone Ill take it on.

Once the Coheed survivor is done, you can start. Ill shoot you a reminder.
I dont know about Opiate. I doubt you'll get many voters for an EP.
