Tell you what, I wanted to set time limit at 4 minutes (because my song is exactly 4:00 long), but Mike didn't allow it. :lol

Let's maybe say if you send something over 5 minutes, you lose half of the points you've earned so far? :angel:

Wait, I wanted to send a song that was 5:04 and didn't because it's over the limit, this hardly seems fair

@Sacul: You should listen to some cheesy power metal, not a lot but just a little, for fun  ;)

Nah, I know fun music that's way better than that - sometimes I'd even listen to drone rather than power metal :P

It's ok guys. Don't fight over a few seconds of music. Nekov, if you want to send that song, you're still in time - but by tomorrow I gotta have it.

Ok STOP now - the songs I have are cool. I'm gonna listen to them, do not resend anything!

This round might take a little longer since I'm pretty busy these days, but don't worry. Results between Sunday and Tuesday.

Slightly late results are here:

Round 6 - Evermind Round: THE RESULTS

This round wasn't bad at all, but not that awesome either. I didn't decide the theme for it, and as expected, it turned out to be quite interesting but kind of.. I don't know, a bit repetitive under a certain aspect. I expected more variety from you guys given the various choices, but you all gave me power metal, apart from one hard rock and one 70's song. It's okay nevertheless, and I can't complain at all, for it wasn't shitty at all.

Let's see

FIRST PLACE: Scorpion, with "The Temple Of Hate" by Angra

I've heard of this band, but I didn't know that they were actually brazilian. And now kind of italian too, thanks to Fabio Lione and the likes. Also, I see a familiar face on drums (Aquiles Priester) and on guitar (Kiko Loureiro). Overall, this is a very fun, fast and melodic power metal tune, with lots and lots of progressive influences, featuring synths, complicated guitar parts and all that good stuff. It reminded me a lot of Symphony X, which of course, know their shit with power metal influences.

Good song, 9 points

SECOND PLACE:A tie between...
 Sneakyblueberry, with "All Men Play On Ten" by Manowar

Manowar are one of those band which I can't take seriously thanks to their image. I seriously laugh when I hear them mentioned. But this song, a hard rock piece, has this great groove to it, and the vocals feel very "strong" in a sense. I really dig this piece, it's also very catchy. Wouldn't have expected it to be this high at first.

...and
Shadowninja, with "The Ghost Of Icarus" by Keldian

This is a great piece that I've enjoyed a lot. It's fast-paced and the chorus is insanely good and catchy. The only thing is that it felt like normal power metal, it didn't have that thing to make it interesting under a certain point of view, whilst the song itself is actually really good. Good job.

8.5 points to all of you

THIRD PLACE Another tie between
Elite, with "White Shadow" by Voyager

Man, I thought that Voyager were prog  :lol - But seriously, the only other song from these guys that I know about is totally a different style, and given that this is from one of their first records, they have grown. This one was a little bit too cheesy for my tastes, but it threw a couple of interesting ideas in to keep the cheese from tearing down the tune.

and
Nekov, with "Still I Believe" by Iron Savior

Like The Ghost Of Icarus, this was good and all but it kind of lacked creativity. I appreciate the groove that's going on in the song, but it felt really done-before.

7.5 points


FOURTH PLACE Sacul with "Babylon" by Aphrodite's Child

You were very undecided about what to send, and your decision didn't exactly pay off that well. This is a good 70's track, catchy, quirky, just how I like it - but I feel that with a different arrangement, and if the song was longer, I would've enjoyed it a lot more.

6.5 points

FIFTH PLACE Evermind with "Carnivore" by Trail Of Murder

This suffered the King Of Errors Syndrome, which consists in you sending a song that is really stale and repetitive. In my opinion, of course. But this was definitely more fun and groovy than KOE, so it has one point more  :tup
6 points

LAST PLACE WebRaider with "March Of Mephisto" by Kamelot

I really didn't like this one. I think that the atmosphere is kinda off, and the music doesn't work with the lyrics all that well. It felt also really uninteresting to me, I don't know why, but it lacked substance.

5 points[/b

--- I look evil  :lol Sorry if I offended you in any way whatsoever guys, but when critiques are needed, they arrive.

Elite - 48.5 pts.
Sneakyblueberry - 48 pts.
Sacul - 47.5 pts.
Shadowninja - 47.5 pts.
Evermind - 46 pts.
Scorpion - 46 pts.
Nekov - 45.5 pts.
WebRaider - 42.5 pts.

This next round fellas, you need to send me dark stuff. I want anything from depressive to creepy. It can be heavy or not, you decide. Just make me shit myself. Or cry a lot, to the point of suicide. I IS DANGER

SEND ROUND 7 GOOD LUCK

Man, I thought that Voyager were prog  :lol


I thought so too! Don't think I found anything with them listed in the Power Metal genre. I would have liked to send a song of theirs.
