There's always a first time. I've done a top 50 Dream Theater songs, a top 50 albums and now it's time to embrace another one of these DTF traditions: the roulette.

This is so exiting. I'm a guy that doesn't actively search for new music, I just let things go naturally, if you know what I mean. I'm also younger than a lot of you guys, and so naturally I know less stuff than most of you, so I'm extremely pumped for this roulette.

As far as my tastes go, I think I'm really able to like anything. There are two or three things that I just can't stand:

- House music. Kill it with fire.
- Poppy love songs. Can't stand them anymore. My dad listens to the radio all the time, and every SONG IS A GODDAMN LOVE SONG. There are good love songs around, and I think that the best ones are the ones that take the concept of love and kind of expand it through the instrumentation (example: Anathema, Devin Townsend's Epicloud) or just love songs that make you think.
- Extremely extreme death metal. Not a big fan of the mess in this genre. Too much stuff going on, too much aggression and often I don't find any sense in this type of music.

"Now MikeMangioy, do you like growls?"
Yes, I do enjoy harsh vocals. But once again, they have to have sense in the context of the song, otherwise they sound just out of place to me.

-- Alright, now that I've gotten that out of the way, let's see how this roulette will work:

Eight contestants will fight each other for eight rounds of doom and hatred and war. Only one will win though.  5 of the eight rounds will be themed, and three of them will be open. EXCEPT that two of them will be open.

Indeed, Evermind won a bonus because he guessed right my #1 album in the top 50, and his bonus is: you can turn an open round into a themed round, and you can decide the theme. Cool, huh? Evermind, just PM me when you want to use your bonus.

After the last round there will be one extra round, which will consist in a 1 vs 1 round, within the two contestants with most points. Also, themed.

The songs will be rated with a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 10 points. Hey, you might even get extra points because you sent a song by an artist that I don't particularly dig.

And of course, here is the infamous and mandatory banned artists list:

AC/DC
Alestorm
Alter Bridge
Anathema (Weather Systems only)
Anthrax
Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon, Star One, The Gentle Storm and solo albums)

Hahaha everyone sends power metal. :lol

Just kidding, I'll think of something when it's time. By the way, is the information about which rounds are themed and/or themes themselves kept in secret for now? This kind of info would help me to plan what to send and also what to do with my bonus. :angel:

It makes sense if you read the next paragraph right after that.

I admit though, I was kind of perplexed at first too.

I'd love to play if you'd have me.  I've followed both your lists and I think I may have some cool stuff to introduce you to.  Hopefully.  If you'll have me.  Say you'll have me.  I love you.

This should be fun. The amount of metal bands in your banned list makes me want to send lots of non-metal stuff, which I will probably do  :D

If you can handle my roulette laziness, I'll join. I have lots of cool stuff to give to you. If you don't want to have me, then that's perfectly fine either. I'll try to send in time, but the past roulettes I've played in have shown that I can't always do that. It's up to you, though I would like to be in.
Hey dude slow the fuck down so we can finish together at the same time.  :biggrin:

Re: MikeMangioy's Roulette of awesome - v. Send round 1!
« Reply #25 on: June 10, 2015, 01:35:39 PM »
OK! Everybody's in now.

Here are the round themes:

Round 1: Openers
Round 2: Open round
Round 3: Strange stuff
Round 4: Open round
Round 5: Gorgeous stuff
Round 6: Evermind round
Round 7: Darkness
Round 8: Closers

The theme of the 1vs1 round will remain secret.

As of right now, you can start sending tunes! First round is "Openers". This means that I would like a song that has that kind of vibe, a song that to you sounds "perfect" to open either an album or a concert. Time limit is eight minutes.

If somebody else wants to join, please do. More songs = more fun. Hey, Elite, if you don't want to be in the roulette maybe the extra person can fill your place? I don't mind having you, but hearing what you said, it's for the pace. I don't know, tell me.

Everyone is in except for Evermind, Sneakyblueberry and Sacul, which actually sent a song that I had already listened to.

Guys, I must warn you, I sometimes listen to artists even if I listen only to one song.  That's why I said you should always ask before sending, or hell, even have a second song to send just in case. I know, I'm very inconsistent, and in these cases I don't put the artist in the banned list because, you know, I only listened to that one song a lot of times. But the rest of the songs from that artist, I don't know, and you can send. Sorry for the inconvenience.
