Any objection to live songs?

I usually prefer live songs. Lol

What's your take on more calm, acoustic, melody-driven songs? Like The Silent Man and stuff.

The Silent Man is one of my top 20 DT songs. I love those types of songs, but only if they're not boring melodies.

Alright alright alriiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Round 4 Results:


#11: Faith No Mre-Epic; DR. DTVT
Eh. It's a decent song but nothing too special about, particularly drum wise. Drums fit the part but aren't all that standout -ish.

#10: Tool- The Grudge; LordCost
Good solid song but I've heard better from Tool. Drumming is solid.

#9: Devin Townsend-Grace; Lucien
The sonic power to this song is just awesome. Really moving tune. Solid drumming, just nothing too special.

#8: Sieges Even - Leftovers; kingschmegland
I really loved the melody and sound of this song. it flows great.

#7: Opeth- The Grand Conjugation; Destiny of Chaos
I really enjoyed this song. Some of the cymbal work pretty cool and the snare/bass groove in the intro is really cool (and is also the same rhythm as 30 Seconds to Mars' "Battle of One" lol).

#6: Queensrÿche - Anarchy-X / Revolution Calling; Sacul
Only thing I've ever listened to from Queensryche is the Comfortably Numb cover with DT. I rather enjoyed this song(s?) though. The drumming complements the song very well and the song itself is pretty cool.

#5: Tool -Lateralus; Senecadawg2
Next 5 were really hard to rank. All excellent examples of drumming. This was a really good song and I particularly loved the hi hat work around the 5:50 mark. A lot of the fills were pretty tight too.

#4: Frost*-Hyperventilate; lonestar
Firstly, the piano work in this song is outstanding. Such a great melody laid down throughout and the intro is amazing. This whole piece is really spectacular and I love the flow of it throughout. The drumming is awesome as well.

#3: The Human Abstract- Patterns; Scorpion
Awesome drumming from the first second with the small fill to open the song. Really interesting and cool song and some of the guitarist's solo work is pretty insane.

#2; Genesis- Riding the Scree; Tom Bombadil
I've listened to some of "Lamb Lies Down.." previously and I really love Cuckoo Cocoon off of it. This song is great as well and I had no idea Phil Collins was such an awesome drummer. The groove and power he put behind this song is incredible.

#1: Haken- Darkest Light; mikemanjioy
Man I'm seriously LOVING what I'm hearing from Haken. They're such an awesome band and this song is probably the best I've heard so far. The drumming, especially in the instrumental, is AWESOME. I really love their vocalist too. These guys are awesome.Great pick.

Roulette Standings as of Round 4:
1. lonestar- 38
2. senecadawg2-35
3. Destiny of Chaos-34
4. Tom Bombadil-28
5. Sacul- 26
6. mikemangioy-25
7. kingschmegland-24
8. Scorpion-19
9. LordCost-14
10. DR. DTVT-13
11. Lucien-7

Quite a bit of changes in the standings this round, but lonestar's still in the lead.

Round Five: The Clover
The Instrumental round! Since this is a DT forum, I'm assuming everyone knows why I named this round that ;) Send me your favorite instrumental. I love complicated, intelligent ones like Dance of Eternity and When the Water Breaks (My 2 favorite of all time), but also laid back, melody driven ones like Hell's Kitchen, Eve, One of These Days by Pink Floyd or Genesis by Ghost. Riff driven ones like Ytse Jam and Enigma Machine can be awesome (YJ) if they're interesting, but some (EM) have awesome, fun riffs, but are pretty boring. Send away!

Ooh, I don't agree with your rankings this turn, in the first two turn I could accept it :| I slightly prefer The Grudge to Lateralus, Darkest Light is my least favourite of the Restoration EP, Faith No More so low makes me a bit sad, Patterns would be my 5th or 6th favourite of Digital Veil  :laugh: Anyway, sent the instrumental!

Round Four Results:

Ok. This was an AWESOME round. So much good music was sent my way. It was really fucking hard to rank this time around so in two cases I had to result in a tie. That makes the lowest score a 9 instead of an 11. Great round everyone!

#9: Aisles-Hero; kingschmegland
Because even when all the music is awesome, there has to be a last place. This was a very unique song. I liked the flow of it and how open it felt. The change in tempo and feel at 1:36 is really awesome. Overall a solid pick.

#8: DJ Shadow - Building Steam with a Grain of Salt; Sacul
I love hip-hopish instrumental stuff like this. It's got a nice groove and feel to it. The little break around the 2:55 mark is really awesome.

#7: The Enid- Tripping the Light Fantastic; Lucien
This was a really cool piece. I've just begun getting into symphonic metal with bands like Nightwish and this was a really cool example of combining the styles of symphonic music and metal together to create a unique, refreshing feel. The flow of the song is awesome and has some really standout parts. Great choice.

#6: Buckethead- The Hills of Eternity; Scorpion
The melody of this song is flatout awesome. It feels a tad bit repetitive at times but I love the flow of it. It's got a great sonic quality to it and it just soars. Great choice.

#5: Circus Maximus- Biosfear; Destiny of Chaos
Ok. This band is fucking AWESOME. I'm loving what I've heard from them so far. Great new discovery. This song is one of those great discoveries. Very heavy DT influence I hear, including parts that sound like they're straight out of TDoE and Beyond This Life. interesting arrangement and just fun to listen to.

#4 TIE: Scale the Summit- Odyssey; DR. DTVT
First tie. This song comes off strong and has some really awesome sections. The part at :30 makes me smile so hard. LOVE it. The sudden softer section at 1:45 is really sweet and unexpected. Great instrumental.

#4 TIE: Porcupine Tree-Wedding Nails; mikemangioy
Another really awesome discovery. Everything I've heard from this band has been perfect and this is no exception. They write some truly awesome guitar and keyboard arrangements and riffs. The riff at 1:47 is SICK. Opening/main riff is fun as hell and catchy. Really great instrumentation in this song. Fucking rules.

#3: Agaloch- Sowilo Rune; senecadawg2
A gorgeously mellow song. This one's rhythm on acoustic guitars behind the piano soloing softly is amazing. It's a very gorgeous song and its flow feels very much like a journey.

#2: Pomegranate Tiger- Mountains in the Sky; lonestar
Oh man, I so got this fucking round.
SO CLOSE  :biggrin: The opening 2 minutes are awesome and then it just gets fucking BRUTAL. Some pretty heavy riffs start happening and the groove is insane. Awesome power behind this song.

#1 TIE: Triumph of Irreality- Tom Bombadil
I've heard a song off of this album but I can't remember what it was. Anyways, this is a brilliant song. The piano intro is gorgeous and optimistic and is a great lead into the full band. The main melody carries that same optimistic feel throughout the song and it's just a virtuostic powerhouse. The piano behind the spoken word parts are perfect for the context. The guitar and keyboard back and forth riff at 1:30 is amazing. Everything about this song is amazing. Great choice.

#1 TIE: Anathema- Hindsight; LordCost
Another gorgeously laid out song. The melody is very surreal and makes me super happy and super nostalgic at the same time. Reminds me of the happiest parts of my life. That's the feeling this song conveys to me and I absolutely adore it. The guitar soloing is phenomenal and it just soars over the rhythm. Absolutely phenomenal.

Roulette Standings after Round Five:
1. lonestar: 48
2. Senecadawg2: 43
3. Destiny of Chaos: 41
4.Tom Bombadil: 39
5. mikemangioy: 33
6. Sacul: 30
7. kingschmegland: 27
8. Scorpion/LordCost:25
10. DR. DTVT: 21
11. Lucien: 12

lonestar, Seneca and Destiny are still holding strong but Tom's coming up take them all down it looks like;)

Round Six: The Calm Before the Storm
Title will make sense next round. This round I'm looking for your favorite mellow/acoustic/ballad/etc song. Anything from acoustically driven to piano driven to just any softer styled song. Good examples are Space Dye Vest, Spirit Carries On, Comfortably Numb, Time, Brain Damage, Beneath the Surface, etc. Killer solos like in TSCO and Comfortably Numb are MUCH appreciated. Have fun and good luck!

Hella sweet, and no shame to finishing second behind those two songs, they're brilliant.

I'll figure out something to send in the next day or two....see if I can make this lead un-breachable.
