Yeah, I'm on my third listen, started getting into the songs a little bit more. It's good enough, but out of the four, I think it's my least favorite yet.

Round 4: Open Round II - THE RESULTS


This round, as I've previously stated, was my least favorite. Now, this doesn't mean that I haven't liked the songs or anything, there was just something about it that made me like it less than previous three rounds. But the songs were cool enough, let's see:

FIRST PLACE: A tie between Evermind and Elite

Evermind sent "Saviour In The Clockwork" by Avantasia.

I know a couple of Avantasia songs, and they're cool. This song is no exception to that rule, since it's a really groovy, fast and heavy piece of metal music. The song has two parts, being ten minutes long, the first part is kinda thrashy and features a really great and anthemic-sounding chorus. The second part is groovier and slightly heavier and the flow in the song is awesome. It made me go "yeah" a lot of times.

Elite sent "Suicidal Penguin" by Schizoid Lloyd

He decided to keep the vibes of the previous round in this one, for this is a really wacky but cool song, but this fairly recent band (this from their last year's debut). The thing I like the most is the vocal work. A lot of cool twists in it, and reminds me at times of a funny version of Symphony X. Really cool song, very eccentric, I have to check out the album.

9 points to each of you.

SECOND PLACE: sneakyblueberry, with "Limb From Limb" by Protest The Hero

I've been constantly hearing about this band since I've immersed in the prog territories, and this was the right time to check them out. And, as I expected, they have this mixture of prog, metalcore and overall awesome stuff and real great flow, that stream-of-consciousness styled songs kind of lack. But this had it since the first listen, and it's really a fun track. I love the "she is... SUUUUN" part , and the subsequent keyboard solo/djenty riffing. Awesome stuff.

8.5 points

THIRD PLACE: Sacul with "Anarchy X/Revolution Calling" by Queensryche

This is another classic I need to properly check out, but it sounds promising, even though I wouldn't classify this song(s) as "progressive" at all. It sounds like straight heavy 80's stuff. I don't know if it's just this song or the whole album, but it's what I think it sounds like, really. Even so, this song rocks. Catchy melodies, cool lyrics about social problems, and great fun vibe overall. Cool track, I hear O:M praised a lot, so I think I will check it out someday.

8 points

FOURTH PLACE: Tie between WebRaider and Scorpion

WebRaider with "Glass Faces" by Corelia

This reminds me both of Periphery and some other band that I can't pinpoint. It's a cool song, but it felt a bit generic, admittedly. Very djenty and somewhat catchy, but not that awesome, but still, this band hasn't even got a full blown album yet, so what do I expect, really. Once again, nice but not that much.

Scorpion with "Shellmounds" by Grayceon

This was an interasting 10 minute track, with lots of cool cello parts and a dirty vibe. It had a nice tone, but it felt draggy at times - as for the cello, I always enjoy cello in rock music, as it kinda sounds like an electric guitar and adds texture to the song. With this song's produciton though, this aspect kinda didn't show up to me . So cool ideas but kind of meh

7 points

FIFTH PLACE: Tie again, Shadowninja and Nekov

Nekov sent "New Day Rising" by Von Hertzen Brothers

This was the first straight rock tune in the roulette so far, and while I enjoy this kind of music, I don't think it's the type of song I'd send in a roulette. It has a cool groove, but that's about it, kinda stale. The chorus is ok, also.

Shadowninja sent "Homestuck" by Carne Vale (or is it the other way around??)

This was a surprise. An adrenalinic electronic song with electric guitars. Kind of reminded me of Rammstein, but not the type of stuff I would normally listen to. Not that bad though.

6 points


------
Score:

Sacul - 32 pts.
Evermind - 31.5 pts.
Elite - 31.5 pts.
WebRaider - 30.5 pts.
Scorpion - 30 pts.
Nekov - 30 pts.
Sneakyblueberry - 30 pts.
Shadowninja - 29 pts.

Elite and Evermind are slowly taking over the chart! I remind you that they were in the last places in the first round.

FELLAS, ROUND FIVE TIME!

It's time for beauty. Send me beautiful, gorgeous songs. This could mean ballads, or songs with a high emotional/energetic power - really anything that you'd define gorgeous. Good luck!

man, i don't understand the love Fortress gets out of all the PtH albums, it's the most bland and uninspired imo. Limb From Limb isn't even one of the better songs on the album, why not Sequoia Throne, or... Sequoia Throne?  :lol
It's probably Six Roaming Owls or some other obscure band I've never heard of.

Nice! Operation: Mindcrime is one hell of a ride for sure - check it out right after the roulette is over. Or even better, right now. Have a taste, please.

Oh, and that album below the Protest the Hero record looks amazing, I'll have to give it a listen immediately :neverusethis:

Nah, Fortress is amazing, but Limb from Limb indeed isn't even close to being the best track on the album. If I would send a PtH track in a roulette I would go with Sequoia Throne, Without Prejudice or Yellow Teeth, probably. Accessible, yet extremely good songs,

Sending one of my favourite ballads I often use in the roulettes. Given that our tastes in ballads are pretty much the opposite, it's probably the last place for me this time. :lol

edit: I've sent both the track and the theme / time limit for Round 6. If it gets approved... let's see what tricks you've got for this one folks.

Well, my theme / time limit weren't approved fully, so I had to tweak it and now it'll be easier for you guys, but anyway, better start revisiting your power metal audio libraries now. :biggrin:
