I'm trying to think of a pop band I really like that ISN'T Coldplay.
i don't even like dt but i had keyboard and an ipad so what the fuck
Jordan is actually DT's tax advisor. He just happens to do their taxes on stage, that's why he has that iPad there.

Wow, glad you liked it so much! If you want to dig into their discography, I'd suggest starting with Raising Your Voice...Trying to Stop an Echo. It's their best album imo but all of their albums are amazing.

Sent for round 3.

Round 3 Results:
Senecadawg2: Sarah Fimm - Paradise
A more chill song, I really dig Sarahís voice, itís pretty dope. Musically, the piano is warm, but it feels a little barren musically nonetheless, which is kind of interesting when you consider the songís called paradise. I like it though, it works well with this song. The song doesnít ever really climax though, and I think thatís the one thing that I can say I didnít quite like, otherwise, good song.
7/10

Webraider: Destiny Potato - Dark Sid of You
I know of this band! But thatís okay, Iíve had the album sitting dormant for a little bit, TOO MUCH MUSIC TO LISTEN TO, ya know? What catches me hook line and sinker with this band is how catchy that djent loveliness is. Itís like an ear worm, and then you put two fantastic female vocalists on top of it and itís going to be one hard mother fucker to dig out. I donít know if the song could have used some trimming or not, one moment I think it could have, but the next Iím saying to myself ďGWEN, WHAT THE HECK WERE YA THINKING, GAWSH. Mainly itís when the instrumental sections happen, sometimes they drag a little bit, get a little bit overindulgent(the guitar solo, sick solo, just kind doesnít quite feel justified, but damn it I still love it). Other than that, Iíll have to finally put the album on and take the time to probably enjoy the HECK out of it.
8/10

MoraWinterSoul: Regina Spektor - Samson
Iíve heard this name a butt ton, but I just never bothered checking her out. Thank you for sending this song, itís right up my alley. DAT voice of hers. So breathy, and gorgeous, and it just dances along on top of the piano. I must get all of her stuff immediately, and I must weep tears as I fall in love with her music. Really, not much else I can say other than I absoFRICKINlutely love this. Way to go.
10/10

GentlemanofDread: Keane - Bedshaped
Some gorgeous keys build a lovely atmosphere along with that simple but effective beat. The vocalist has a lovely voice, wandering through the alleyways of the music. The chorus comes into itís own very nicely, and the way it goes from the pre chorus to the chorus for some reason really makes me think of Matt Belemy from Muse. Canít explain it, but eyeh. Overall, you sent a great song!(Also, a very chilling music video)
8.5/10

Zantera: Beach House - Other People
Another band Iíve heard of but never checked out, thanks for making me! Reverb drenched vocals glade across synths and some guitar which comes up more occasionally. The song has a dreamy landscape feel to it, perfect music to get lost in. It just feels like one of those dreams in which you just wander aimlessly and then suddenly start flying and it just makes me feel so light.
8.5/10

Adace: Janelle MonŠe - Q.U.E.E.N.
I SAW HER AT BONNAROO OHMYGAWSH SHE WAS SO AWESOME. Unfortunately though I have her Electric Lady album and never develop or plan out the time to listen to it, except for the first few tracks. I do know that I absolutely love her though, her voice is like honey, and it flows over that funkadelic awesomeness radularly. Thank you for reminding me that I need to put aside some time to listen to her album in full!
9/10

Sacul: Flying Colors - Fool in my Heart
Oof, you picked the wrong Flying Colors song. The music itself is pleasant, but Mike Portnoy just isnít meant for the microphone, and something about how he sits in the mix doesnít please my ears too much. Donít take this too roughly, youíve been sending ballin music, and you will continue to, but you swung and missed this time. Keep on fighting the good fight. The music itself is tight though, which kind of saves you from a real mean score.
5/10

Onno: Flying Colors - Kayla
Another Flying Colors song (insert a laugh emoticon here) Too tired and lazy to bother looking up the name of the vocalist, but he has a fantastic voice, and from the one time I listened to the album, he was always a highlight. Musically the song grooves pretty well, everything sits well with each other. Iíd say the weakest part of the song is probably the chorus, not saying itís bad, just the weakest link of an overall great song. Nice submission, I just might have to revisit the album, just gotta make sure to skip a certain song.
7/10

PROGdrummer: Submotion Orchestra - Always
Immediately, got some of that moody goodness, and a tight drumbeat going. I can dig it. Next thing I know vocals are tip toeing around the music, and it sounds great. I can see this being great party music next time my friends are over, it just sits well in that way I feel. Overall a fantastic submission mang, Itís not something Iíd listen to often, but when I would, I would always love it, and I have a friend or two who probably already knows these guys, but if not would absolutely love them.
8/10

Senecadawg2: 19.5+7 = 26.5
MoraWinterSoul: 17.5+10= 27.5
Sacul: 18.5+5=23.5
Zantera: 17.5+8.5= 26
Onno: 14.5+7=21.5
WebRaider: 16+8= 24
Adace: 18+9= 27
PROGdrummer: 15.5+8=23.5
GenlemanofDread: 16+8.5= 24.5

Alright, so with that said, overall a great round guys, loving all the music I've got to now catch up on!

So Round 4, is all about the crushing music. That can be musically, lyrically, I think you guys can dig it. A great example would be The Ocean and their album "Pelagial". That album covers the gamut of what it means to be crushing. The music falls down an abyss, and leaves your body mangled by the end, while sometimes it's the lyrics that tear your heart to shreds. I want the music you guys send to do this. The best of luck to you all!

Sooooo. I was up really late last night and got everything all listened to and rated, sooooooooo.....

ROUND 4 RESULTS MA'FLIPPAS.

MoraWinterSoul: Giant Squid - Sevengill (Notorynchus Cepedianus)
Aw yisss, Post Rock creates some of the most crushing music imaginable. It never goes hella hard ala extreme metal, but the atmosphere bands create is suffocating, and chilling quite often. And when there are bands that have lyrics, theyíre Woods of Ypres level, and just severely soul crushing. Giant Suid know what the hellís up, and this song put a weight on my shoulders. Way to go. Also dear god that stringed instrument that plays into whats musically the heaviest part of the song which makes itself comfortable for the rest of the song and wails you. Ohmy'Lanta.
9.5/10
(I just wanna post an excerpt of the lyrics from this song, because gawt damn)
Quote
Please come to the bay, see who now lives on the bottom
I'd like to have some last words before I forget how to walk upon these muddy shores and entirely cease to breathe like a man
Seeing things only with the tips of my hands
My heart is crushed by the jaws of regret
Upon knowing where you now make your bed
The depths at which I've chained to you
I pray those shackles eventually rust through
Held under by chiton like lies
Amongst the corpses
I'll never surface

Senecadawg2: The Human Abstract
I had this album back in 2011, and would listen to it occasionally, but for some reason I just fell out of listening to it. Thanks for bringing it back to my attention.
ďPULL ME FROM THE GALLOWSĒ *Sweet motherfucking guitar*
Ya done good bruh. This song throws away the notion that you get a break, and pummels you with radical technical metal, the way our lord and savior intended it to be. I love the break neck changes that happen through out the song, it to a degree reminds me of this band Desecravity, who play a more extreme flavor of tech death, but they go through these break neck changes that all somehow flow and these guys know how to do the same. A good neck breaker this song here.
9/10

Sacul: Porcupine Tree - Heartattack In A Layby
I was hoping somebody would send Porcupine Tree at some point in this roulette, as I only have listened to Deadwing and Fear Of a Blank Planet(both of which I love), but I knew there was so much more I need to listen to, I just havenít gotten around to it. The lyrics wash over in icy waves, lapping at my heart, and I feel like I need to go lay in bed, stare at the ceiling and contemplate serious matters. On top of the lyrics and how theyíre presented, the music itself is a melancholic beast of itís own, that builds a tension in my heart. Gawt damn.
9/10

Zantera: Celeste - Dans Ta Salive, Sur Sa Peau
IMMEDIATE BLAST BEATS AND GUITAR ATTACK. You get me man. Iím loving this from the get go, and the vocals are vicious. The attack is relentless, even when the music changes up, itís still like a hive of bees all swarming around my head, while the vocalist decides to enter my ears and start stinging like a madman. And itís a whole 9 fucking minutes of it too, from past 3 minutes on it starts to slow down, and around 720 HERE COMES THE HIVE AGAIN. Lovely stuff man, absolutely lovely in how Iím probably going to die from all of these bee stings.
9/10

Onno: Verdi - Requiem: Dies Irae
Ah, this song. An instantly recognizable piece, voices wailing, as frenzied string and brass instruments scurry along. It can be very overwhelming, like in those cartoons of yonder where a characterís hair would just be blown back from some intense force. And then about 3/4 of the way through the song, things quiet down, becoming more playful, only to see that the lyrics are pretty damn menacing. Nice touch.
8.5/10

GentlemanofDread: Roger Waters - Three Wishes
This is purrty creepy. That monologue, and the wonky synth. And then about a minute in, everything else comes in, and itís just got this "Iím going to drag your soul down this chasm right here, and Iíll do it for freeĒ feel to it. And when Roger Waters comes in, it just furthers that notion, what with the fucking creepy effects on his voice that will come in. Iím going to have to listen to some fricking happy music tonight before I can go to bed. Something that pulls me out of the crushing despair is the female vocals that come in over him at times. Just doesnít really fit the mood imo. Otherwise, fantastic song.
7.5/10

WebRaider: Boris - Riot Sugar
Boris, I see and hear of this band a lot, but as always, Iím too swamped to check them out. Thanks for sending this. The guitars are thick as molasses, and drenched in effects, which sound pretty great along with that drum kit. The haunted vocals overtop that fucking riff has me bobbing my head violently because man oh man does that sound radical as fuck. I just saved this album, and I may have to go on a binge listening session of this band now.
9/10

PROGdrummer: The Safety Fire - Huge Hammers
I have their most recent album, but Iíve only listened to a song or two from it.  A song called Huge Hammers shows a lot of promise, and musically it hits hard. Those guitars are most certainly huge hammers that wreck the fuck out of their surroundings. The vocals on the other hand arenít that crushing, but you know what, they still fit with the music, and still sound incredible, so you wonít hear me knocking those at all. That chorus is pretty catchy too.
8/10

adace: Bloodbath -
I want to hug you for sending Bloodbath. I decided not to put them on my list of banned bands/artists, because while Iíve listened to the album that has ďEatenĒ on it more than just a bit, itís been awhile and I havenít dug into the rest of their catalog thatís just collecting dust on my computer. These guys are like a giant maul, slowly pummeling you to a pulp. Along with being musically heavy as a sack of bricks, the lyrics are just so brutal it just puts a big cheesy smile on my face as Iím windmilling.
9/10

Senecadawg2: 26.5+9= 35.5
MoraWinterSoul: 27.5+9.5= 37
Sacul: 23.5+9=32.5
Zantera: 26+9=35
Onno: 21.5+8.5= 30
WebRaider: 24+9=33
Adace: 27+9=36
PROGdrummer: 23.5+8= 31.5
GenlemanofDread: 24.5+7.5=32

Ya'll are keeping it a pretty tight up in here, and this round was absolutely fantastic, probably the best one so far. Ya'll feel it, that is for sure. With that said, it looks like it's time for RD.5 which is the "YOUR FAVORITE BAND" round. Send me something from your favorite band, unless they're on my list, ya know? Keep keeping it real folks, you're doing a wonderful job so far.
