Hey guys this is my first roulette so expect it to be simple and straightforward.

Rules:

- 8 Contestants
- 8 Rounds
- All Rounds will be Open. No themes.
- I will rank the songs 1-8 on how much I enjoy them. #1 getting 8 points, #2 getting 7 points, and so on.
- I will accept Youtube links or something that can be found on Spotify.


I will begin this as soon as I get 8 contestants, which shouldn't take too long. I'm reserving a spot for black_floyd for now as he said most likely take part. I have 3 people already interested, Scorpion, Nekov, and Seneca. So that leaves 4 spots open. Come quick!

Contestants:
1. senecadawg2
2. Scorpion
3. Nekov
4. Elitist.
5. Parama
6. Sacul
7. kingshmegland
8. black_floyd

And I now have 8 contestants. Thank you gentlemen for a quick and easy process.


Alright, as far as my tastes go, I'm what you would probably call a Steven Wilson fanboy, but I generally like anything. I'm not necessarily huge on Progressive Metal, but I'm willing to give more of that stuff a shot. For example, Pain of Salvation has been kind of hit or miss for me, but I haven't listened to a whole lot of them, so they won't be included on this list. And I'm willing to give them more chances, because all the bands I know and love today had to grow on me. I wasn't fond of DT or PT when I first heard them, but now they're among my favorites. Lately, I've been exploring different genres such as rap, funk, jazz, and blues. This shouldn't be too hard for any of you because I'm very open to new styles of music, and I generally like most of what I hear. Plus, my banned list will be pretty short:

Aerosmith
Agalloch
Alter Bridge
Anathema
Andrew W.K.
Animals as Leaders
The Aristocrats
Avenged Sevenfold
The Beatles
Between the Buried and Me
Blackfield
Blink182
Boston
Buckethead
Chevelle
Coheed and Cambria
Coldplay
Daft Punk
David Gray
The Dear Hunter
The Decemberists
Deep Purple
Devin Townsend
Dream Theater
dredg
The Flower Kings
Flying Colors
Foo Fighters
Gary Clark, Jr.
Haken
Hans Zimmer
Headspace
Imagine Dragons
Incubus
Iron Maiden
James LaBrie
Jethro Tull
John Coltrane
Johnny Cash
Katatonia
King Crimson
Led Zeppelin
Liquid Tension Experiment
Lord Huron
Mark Tremonti
The Mars Volta
Mastodon
Megadeth
Metallica
Miles Davis
Mr. Bungle
Muse
Nas
Nine Inch Nails (Anything Trent Reznor)
Nirvana
OneRepublic
Opeth
OSI
Pearl Jam
Periphery
The Pineapple Thief
Pink Floyd
Porcupine Tree
Protest the Hero
Queen
Queens of the Stone Age
Radiohead
Rage Against the Machine
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Riverside
The Rolling Stones
Rush
Sigur Ros
The Smashing Pumpkins
Steve Miller
Steven Wilson
Stevie Ray Vaughan
Stone Temple Pilots
Storm Corrosion
Susanne Sundfør
System of a Down
Tesseract
Thomas Giles
Tom Petty
Tool
Transatlantic
Ulver
Weezer
Yes

There might be more but that's good enough. I'll add more if I remember. The ones in bold letters are ones that are my favorites.

So, while we wait for more people to join this, do you have a list of banned bands or something we can use as reference as to what you like?

Look at your music library- that's the banned list.

Alright, I posted the banned list in the OP. Everything is set to go, and we will go ahead and begin.

Round 1 will last a whole week, (is that too long or too short? Y'all give me some pointers and tips if necessary, this is my first roulette and need a feel for things) so whenever you guys get ready just send me a PM with your song choice.

Also, keep in mind that there are no themes and every round is open. So there's going to be a lot for you guys to choose from, no limits!

Well, 8 rounds with each round lasting a week is a kind of standard timing. It's recommended to wrap up the roulette in two months, and this schedule allows you to do exactly that.

Seems I'm a bit too late to play, but I'll follow.

Sweet

And sorry about that, if I do  a future roulette, I'll probably add a few more contestants. I'll just see how things go this time around.

gotta enter this band before they get sniped by someone else, then

also curious as to what Pain of Salvation you've listened to, for... reasons  :hat

edit: hot damn, did I just notice an omission on the banned list that I actually mentally skipped going through my music list because I assumed it would be there. someone better plug that hole before this roulette ends  :lol

Just kidding. And I've listened to a few songs from various albums from PoS, but not enough to really remember anything.

One of my fellow contestants mentioned maybe I could make the rounds shorter, and I agree with that. It's not going to take me a whole week to listen to all these songs and form a good opinion on them. I have a good bit of free time and as long as you guys don't mind I can always end this round sooner. Let me know what you think.

End the round when you feel the round's over and you have good opinions on all the songs, sticking to a set timeframe is entirely unnecessary :P

Probably sometime over the weekend. I've been so busy watching college basketball today but I've taken the time to listen to most of the songs already. I will have a lot of free time coming up.
