Yeah, so I heard that all the cool people were doing this, so I figured I'd do it and maybe trick people into thinking I was cool.

So, first, music I like. The majority of what I listen to is metal of some description, i.e., power, prog, death etc. However, I do enjoy a number of artists outside this realm as well. Basically, there are no real restrictions as to what you can send. There's no group/artist that I'll dismiss based just on genre (rap and country I don't often enjoy, but if you've got something you think I'd like, by all means, send it). I also enjoy pretty much any type of harsh vocals, so don't worry about sending only songs with clean vox. In addition, as some of you may know, I like some really strange music as well. If you think something's just too strange to send, send it anyway. I'll probably like it. :P

So, let's talk rules (or lack thereof). This is going to be a pretty basic roulette, I'm not planning on including any twists or any sort of side games, basically you send a song, get a score, rinse and repeat. This may sound unexciting, but do you really think I care? ( :P ). Songs will be scored from 1-10. I'm thinking that any band scoring, say, 7 or over will be banned from being sent again.

I haven't decided regarding the number of rounds, but I'm currently thinking that 9 is a good number. Once we see how the pace of the roulette goes, that number may be revised.

I'm generally thinking I'm going to stay away from theme rounds for the most part, leaving most of them as open rounds, because I think the less restriction you have, the more interesting stuff you're able to send. I will say, however, if everyone just sends Generic Prog Metal Band X, some theme restrictions will be put in place. :P  In the event themes are used, songs will be given two scores: the regular, 1-10 score, plus a score from 1-5 based on how well it fits the given theme.

At this point, I'm not planning to restrict song length either, though note, the longer your song is, the less I'll be able to listen to it completely in comparison to other, shorter songs. So only send epics if you feel they make a pretty immediate impression.

And, uh... I guess that's everything. Let me know if there's anything I missed. Sign up is now open, and I don't have any real restrictions on the number of participants either. If things become overwhelming, I'll eliminate some of you.

There's enough melodic rock and metal on the list to indicate I may not be out of my comfort zone.  I don't really do "weird"  ;D

I'm in if you're ok with that.

I'm down with most kinds of music, non-weird included, I just want to make sure people don't exclude something because it's "too weird", because it most likely isn't (though I have been wrong before).

There are a few.

How many people were you wanting in this thing anyway?  You should put YtseBtsySpider on the list... he's been jones'g to get into a Roulette, and publicly stated so in the tracker thread.

I've been thinking for a few months now that I would like to join your roulette, but I was only going to do so if it was theme-less. :lol What are the odds? Count me in.

I don't think I have much on the metal side to offer you though, so the majority of what I send will probably be electronica/synthpop/shitlikethat.

Well, I guess you can start sending in songs now. I'm going to leave sign up open till the end of the day, though.

So, Round 1

....will be the same as the other rounds. Open, send whatever you want. YouTube links are best, and just PM 'em to me.

Here is the policy regarding that:
I'm thinking that any band scoring, say, 7 or over will be banned from being sent again.
