Re: Big Hath's Roulette The 2nd - Round 1! Listening Mode
« Reply #49 on: February 25, 2015, 10:45:44 PM »
like I said earlier, this was a great round.  You guys are sending some awesome music!


adace: If These Trees Could Talk - Thirty-Six Silos: Good stuff.  I liked the climax around the 3 minute mark.  I've dabbled in the post-rock genre, but I can't say I've fully come around to it yet.  It gave me the feeling of a slightly more polished GYBE song.  Other than that, I felt about the same way for this instrumental as that of the last round.  Really needed something to push it over the top to become memorable.
Score: 7.0


kingshmegland: Dada - Baby Really Loves Me: I can dig it.  I thought there was some very interesting things going on between the guitar and bass.   It's decent enough, I just don't think I would choose to listen to this very often.
Score: 7.5


LieLowTheWantedMan: Talking Heads - Crosseyed And Painless: I'm familiar with some of their output later in the decade, but never really delved into their discography.  This song has some cool stuff going on, especially rhythmically, to drive the song forward.  Also really enjoy that thumping bass line.  It has qualities that makes me think Beck took some inspiration from this on some of his earlier albums.
Score: 7.5


Bolsters: The Black Mages - Maybe I'm a Lion: With this band name I was thinking this was going to be some heavy doom.  It was not.  I like the groove.  There is a very strong Led Zeppelin vibe especially early in the song.  And lots of keyboard everywhere.  I take it these guys are somehow part of the video game world and this definitely has that epic video game feel to it even though it is a rock/metal version.  Lots of heavy riffing makes for an ultimately very cool song.  Gong!
Score: 8.0


Tom Bombadil: Umphrey's Mcgee - In the Kitchen: From this band's name I was expecting some kind of raucous Irish punk, something akin to The Pogues or Dropkick Murphys.  It turns out this is kind of laid back and really jammy, which was a bit of a relief.  While it's something I would have to be in the mood for, I quite enjoyed this song.  That little riff/rhythm during the short instrumental break (right before I guess what you'd call the bridge) that returns near the end of the song keeps getting stuck in my head.
Score: 8.0


Sacul: Orphaned Land - All Is One: So I m a big fan of middle-eastern influences in metal music, whether it be an established band borrowing instruments/influences or a band from that area of the world mixing their background with the music they create (such as Myrath).  The “epic choir” was pretty cool.  And the song as a whole was pretty great, but for some reason I feel like I should have liked this more than I did.  After the few listens I've had I can tell it is really growing on me though.
Score: 8.0


senecadawg2: Thank You Scientist - A Salesman's Guide to Non-Existence: This guy wins the Michael Jackson sound alike contest this time (are you guys going to send one each round?)  So anyway, HORNS!  Very fun song.  There were a lot of very cool moments throughout.
Score: 8.5


bl5150: Angel Dust - Come Into Resistance: In your face from the beginning.  I like the bouncy energy this song displays.  Each time I play it, that pounding rhythm plus the awesome riffing gets stuck in my head.  My only slight knock against it is that some of the background vocals sound a bit weak in the verses.  Great song!
Score: 9.0


Scorpion: Psycrence - Moral Decay: Great opening makes me feel like am about to hear something epic.  Really good mix of heaviness and progressive elements.  Definitely scratches some of the right itches.  Gets ever so slightly stale near the end before the outro, but overall very good song.
Score: 9.0


Elite: Epysode - Obsessions: Interesting mix of progressive metal with a singer that sounds like he's from an 80's hair metal band.  The high energy is a big plus on this one.  Ripping guitar solo!
Score: 9.0


Unfortunately someone must go home after this round.  And by an ever so slim margin, we'll be saying farewell to LieLowTheWantedMan.  Thanks for participating!


Rankings
bl5150 - 9.0 + 9.0 = 18.0
Elite - 8.5 + 9.0 = 17.5
kingshmegland - 9.0 + 7.5 = 16.5
Bolsters - 8.5 + 8.0 = 16.5
senecadawg2 - 8.0 + 8.5 = 16.5
Sacul - 8.0 + 8.0 = 16.0
Scorpion - 7.0 + 9.0 = 16.0
Tom Bombadil - 7.5 + 8.0 = 15.5
adace - 7.0 + 7.0 = 14.0

Eliminated
LieLowTheWantedMan - 6.0 + 7.5 = 13.5

Thank You Scientist <3
If I'm gonna be honest I consider Salesman one of the lesser songs on their album (8.5 is around what I'd give it too  :lol ) so I really recommend checking out that entire album.
Also now I'm absolutely positive about something related to a different roulette, ahah :V

The band was actually put together by the guy who wrote the music for the majority of the Final Fantasy games (Nobuo Uematsu), and he is one of the keyboard players in the band. I often recommend these guys to people that I know enjoy rock/metal even if they aren't Final Fantasy fans...usually to success. Glad you liked it. :tup

I'm sent for round 3.

Still a good score even though it didn't catch your liking as much as the others.  On to figuring out the next song to send!

yeah, very cool song.  Am I crazy in thinking there was a serious Zeppelin vibe, especially in the first half of the song?

This. By the way, what's your take on growls, Big Hath?

sorry I missed this earlier.

If done well I think they add a great deal to the music.  My favorites are in the vein of Akerfeldt and Swano.  I'm not much of a fan of black metal shrieking/growling.

Hopefully that makes sense.

I guess I would describe my tastes as more traditional, if that means anything.  I guess it depends on what is being experimented with.  :)
