If it's a tie does Big Hath listen to it some more until he knows which song is the one he prefers?

Nah, that's stupid.

I was brought up on the stuff King ,so yeah.  It's perhaps not being passed down the generations like it used to - and we're a lot more multicultural now than when I was growing up - but we still have a jar in the house at all times  .Puts hairs on your chest  ;)

Before I get to the results, let me just say that we will be saying goodbye to three forum members that have sent some AWESOME music in this roulette.  And this in no way reflects on how I feel about them as individuals (the people that were eliminated prior to this round, well, that's a different story ;)).


Round 8 Results (higher seeded song is listed first)

Matchup #1

#1 bl5150 vs #6 senecadawg2
- The top seed vs one of the most successful roulette participants

Testament - Signs of Chaos/Electric Crown - Mysterious intro: check.  Heavy, crunchy riffing: check.  Virtuoso leads and pyrothechnic licks on top of the heavy rhythm: check.  My one small knock is the relative weakness in the vocals which seem a bit limited in range. 

Gordian Knot - Muttersprache - This song has a lot going for it.  Very cool instrumental that takes you on quite a journey.  I think my favorite part was the more jazzy slowed down section near the end before the short guitar solo.


This was veeeeeeery close, but bl5150 just barely eeks into the championship rounds.


Matchup #2

#2 Bolsters vs #5 Scorpion
- The newcomer vs the returning contestant

Arcane - Keeping Stone: Sound on Fire - Oh yes, I loved that moment when the guitar rips in.  Digging that section which moved right into another really cool riff under the second verse.  Powerful delivery in the vocals as well here.  Really cool stuff happening instrumentally and the vocalist is keeping up.  Definitely one of the better songs this roulette.  The last couple of minutes, especially the repeating riff during the outro, reminded me of Opeth.  The rest of the album is like this??

Cat Empire - Fishies - Fun little song.  Unfortunately it ran up against a juggernaut this round.


Bolsters wins by a fair margin.


Matchup #3

#3(3a) kingshmegland vs #4(3b) Elite
- The king vs the reigning champ

Rocket Scientists - Earthbound - Awesome synth sounds!  Love that build up but then the song kind of takes a right turn, would have liked a bit more exploration of that first theme maybe a bit heavier.  Overall this really reminds me of Ice Age, maybe some Shadow Gallery with the vocal harmonies.  Very cool prog rock.  Great entry!

Pyramaze - The Bone Carver - This song was definitely enjoyable, and is probably a band I wouldn't mind checking out sometime, but there was really nothing about it that stood out from being kind of standard progressive/power metal.


Elite made a game of it, but kingshmegland is the winner.


So there it is.  bl5150, Bolsters, and kingshmegland will battle it out for the next two rounds to determine the champion!  Remember, scores are reset to 0.
Winger would be better!

. . . and if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.

AHHH! Oh well...  :azn:

Good job bl5150!

I was planning on sending an Arcame song if I made it through.. Selfsame, more specifically. I'd highly recommend it, given that you liked Bolster's pick so much.

Cool ...........I had the same reservations BH (vocals) but the guitar is just so damn good I don't care. Having said that the vocals are near the top of the class for bay area thrash  :P  I actually have that Gordian Knot album somewhere seneca but haven't played it (or can't remember).........it must be good though as it's not my normal style and presumably I bought it for a reason   :lol 

I couldn't think of two nicer blokes to take on for the final two rounds - not at the moment anyway .  And I'm a bit tipsy.  :biggrin:

Well that sure was a review that told me exactly what you thought about that song! :P

Anyway, thanks for having me. Your banned list and me not being able to figure out which harsh vocals you like and which you don't made me tread water really early. I'm surprised I hung on for as long as I did, really.

The song you sent was quite good, very enjoyable.  Unfortunately the song it was up against might have been the highest scoring song in this entire roulette so far.
