I'm feeling lucky to still be in this, after the horrendous score I got a couple rounds ago.

Round 6 results in da house!



Elite: Agent Fresco - Dark Water: The vocalist reminds me of Sieges Even's vocalist.  The song was just ok I guess - I didn't get a lot of WOW moments.  I didn't hate it, but overall it's just not quite a style that I'm crazy about.
Score: 7.0


Scorpion: Heart Of Cygnus - The Mountain King: I assume Rush is a big influence.  Lots of 70s Rush vibes in this one.  The section starting about 2:50 was well done.  While I love the many facets of Rush's music, the softer side is probably my least favorite, and that's what this seems to cater to.  The song does have a lot of redeeming qualities, just not something I would choose to rock out to, which is what I typically like doing.  My guess is that this song will get better and better the more I listen to it.  The band is definitely going on the "check out later" list.
Score: 7.5


senecadawg2: Byzantine - Ancestry of the Antichrist: The music = good to great.  The screaming vocals = meh.  The instrumental section was really, really cool.  And I didn't really mind the vocals so much right after that when the guy was singing a bit.  The bass played off the guitars very well.
Score: 8.0


bl5150: Masquerade - End Of Nothing: Great little riff after the intro!  But the vocalist is throwing so much weirdness into the vocals/pronunciations I almost feel like I'm, listening to Tenacious D – especially right after the solo.  HA!  I like the guitar work.  Short but sweet solo.  If the vocals weren't quite so weird this would have been a contender for best of the round.
Score: 8.0


kingshmegland: Druckfaben - Dandelion: Wow!  This is like Yes with a fusion edge.  I like this!  This is some chill out music for me.  The early portions of the song reminded me of Dixie Dregs with that overdriven violin tone.
Score: 8.5


Bolsters: Burnclear - Haven: The guitar in the intro reminds me of Iron Maiden, similar tone as some of their 80s stuff maybe.  I like this guy's voice as well.  Definitely a fan of the energy and pounding riffs.  First impression was really strong.  Really great song!
Score: 9.0




Rankings after round 6
bl5150 - 9.0 + 9.0 + 8.0 + 7.5 + 8.5 + 8.0 = 50.0
Bolsters - 8.5 + 8.0 + 8.5 + 8.0 + 7.0 + 9.0 = 49.0
kingshmegland - 9.0 + 7.5 + 7.0 + 8.5 + 7.5 + 8.5 = 48.0
Elite - 8.5 + 9.0 + 7.5 + 8.0 + 7.5 +7.0 = 47.5
Scorpion - 7.0 + 9.0 + 8.0 + 7.5 + 7.0 + 7.5= 46.0
senecadawg2 - 8.0 + 8.5 + 7.5 + 5.0 + 9.0 + 8.0 = 46.0

Eliminated
LieLowTheWantedMan - 6.0 + 7.5 = 13.5
Sacul - 8.0 + 8.0 + 6.0 = 22.0
adace - 7.0 + 7.0 + 8.5 + 6.0 = 28.5
Tom Bombadil - 7.5 + 8.0 + 7.5 + 7.5 + 7.5 = 38.0


Already we have a bit of a shake up in the race for seeding.  King and Bolsters both jumped over Elite, but I have a feeling the defending champ isn't about to give in just yet.  Seneca has pulled even with Scorp.  If they both have the same score next round, I'll have to figure out another tie breaker as they both would have had the same highest score and the same score for Round 7.  May have to flip a coin if it comes to it . . .

Happy with an 8 - glad you liked it as I really had no idea what the reaction would be. I was prepared for a huge hit with that one .  ;D   Looks like I can venture further out of the comfort zone before sudden death hits .

I have the same reaction to the vocals too btw (only thing that grates a bit with me) - it's not like that throughout the album......just trying to sound "alternative" I suppose , which is in keeping with what was going on at the time.

Glad you liked Burnclear. :tup The band is currently recording their first album, and if the four songs they released onto Youtube are any indication, it'll be a good one.

Round 7 is on its way.

Cool. You can thank _floyd for that one

Also funny that the old king sent Druckfarben. I was considering sending them later in the roulette (which incidentally is why I asked about Yes earlier), but I suppose I don't have to make that decision now  :D

I'll send tomorrow!

« Reply #158 on: April 04, 2015, 11:14:21 PM »
Round 7 results are now in the books.  Kind of a hard round to judge as nothing was really bad, but nothing really killed it for me either.



Bolsters: Last Tribe - Sacrifice: Not completely sold on the vocals.  But I loved that extended guitar solo.  The rest of the song was solid but never really approaching awesome.  The chorus melody got a bit repetitive.  But as I said the solo alone got some major points.
Score: 7.5


senecadawg2: Sylvan - The Sound of Her World: I like the heavy/thick production.  Unfortunately the vocals aren't really doing it for me.  Too dreamy during the chorus, too understated during the verses.  But I thought the buildup during the last third of the song was very cool.
Score: 7.5


kingshmegland: The Twenty Committee - How Wonderful: I like the uplifting nature of the song.  Sounds kind of like a poppy progressive rock, sort of in the Flying Colors vein.  Other than that, I kind of drifted in and out of the song while it was playing, so unfortunately nothing really grabbed me.
Score: 7.5


bl5150: Robby Valentine - Valentine's Overture (Part I): The build up in the intro and first sections of the song were effective.  The vocal swell around 3:50 was cool – a few bars before the first guitar solo.  Parts of the middle section really reminded me of Avantasia.  I really like the energy of the song, but I will admit I kind of get lost with all the theatrics from time to time, especially from about the 7 minute mark and after.
Score: 8.0


Elite: Mechanical Poet - Old Year's Merry Funeral: This song is all over the place - lots of stuff going on in the song, but I like it for the most part.  I'm not sure what is happening in the background vocals, but some of it sounds really weird!  Similar to the Robby Valentine song, things get just a bit too theatrical/over the top at times.
Score: 8.0


Scorpion: Distorted Harmony - Kono Yume: Oh, yeah.  I really dig that first heavy riff.  The intro provided a great buildup to the heaviness.  Sometimes I feel like that vocals aren't quite strong enough for the rest of the song – I don't know if it's the guy's voice or the melodies.  In the end it was a very strong song that I enjoyed quite a bit.
Score: 8.5




Rankings after round 7
bl5150 - 9.0 + 9.0 + 8.0 + 7.5 + 8.5 + 8.0 + 8.0 = 58.0
Bolsters - 8.5 + 8.0 + 8.5 + 8.0 + 7.0 + 9.0 + 7.5 = 56.5
kingshmegland - 9.0 + 7.5 + 7.0 + 8.5 + 7.5 + 8.5 + 7.5 = 55.5
Elite - 8.5 + 9.0 + 7.5 + 8.0 + 7.5 +7.0 + 8.0 = 55.5
Scorpion - 7.0 + 9.0 + 8.0 + 7.5 + 7.0 + 7.5 + 8.5 = 54.5
senecadawg2 - 8.0 + 8.5 + 7.5 + 5.0 + 9.0 + 8.0 + 7.5 = 53.5

Eliminated
LieLowTheWantedMan - 6.0 + 7.5 = 13.5
Sacul - 8.0 + 8.0 + 6.0 = 22.0
adace - 7.0 + 7.0 + 8.5 + 6.0 = 28.5
Tom Bombadil - 7.5 + 8.0 + 7.5 + 7.5 + 7.5 = 38.0


So there you have it, after last round's shakeup in the standings, nothing really changed this time around other than Elite catching King for 3rd seed.  But ultimately that doesn't matter since they are facing off against each other anyway.  So here are the match-ups for the Round 8.  The losers go home.

#1 bl5150 vs #6 senecadawg2
#2 Bolsters vs #5 Scorpion
#3 kingshmegland vs #4 Elite

There will be no scoring for this round.  One song will be chosen as the winner from each pairing.  Good luck!
Winger would be better!

Re: Big Hath's Roulette The 2nd - Round 5 Results
« Reply #164 on: April 05, 2015, 05:05:53 AM »
so here is how the rest of this roulette will play out.

You keep your scores, and for the next two rounds you are playing for seeding, meaning that Rounds 6 and 7 will be just like before.  But after those two rounds you will be seeded 1 through 6 based on your ranking after round 7. 

That is because round 8 is going to be a one on one elimination round, in honor of March Madness.  #1 vs #6, #2 vs #5, and #3 vs #4.

That will leave us with 3 participants for rounds 9 and 10, which will return to our normal scoring (with scores reset to 0) and reveal the ultimate winner.  Got it?  Sound like fun?

I've only had a chance to listen to two songs so far (both from the same match-up), and my first impression is that one is going to be very close.
