I'm guessing none of us really got the theme and made you try to kill yourself?

Sorry for the delay guys

Round 7: Dark round - THE RESULTS

This round was good - you guys sent equally creepiness/darkness and melancholic stuff. Good job.

FIRST PLACE: Nekov, with "Starless" by King Crimson

King Crimson always fascinated me. I know a couple of their tunes of course, but never bothered exploring them fully - even though I know that I would really like them. This song is proof of this, in fact I've loved it instantly. Starless starts out with this jazzy and emotional vibe, it's fairly quiet. Then it goes through this build up, based on a dissonant bass riff, and this is where the creepy part starts. Once it builds up enough it explodes in a fast jazzy solo part, to then end with an epic vibe.
This track was the most varied out of the 8 tracks of this round, and I think it's one of those who captured the "dark" vibe I asked for the best.

9.5 points

SECOND PLACE: Sacul, with "Lunacy" by Swans

Swans always frightened me in the first place. When last year everyone was crazy for To Be Kind (their latest album), I went ahead and tried to listen to it, but my mind kind of imploded along with my sanity, so Swans was an instant nope for me. This song though, is catchy and creepy, and also relatively short, and it leaves a strange kind of mark in your head once you listen to it enough times. I love the build up to it and the calm release in the end.
Good job Sacul, you provided some nice LUNACY
LUNACY
LUNACY
LUNACY
9 points + 0.5 points because I didn't dig Swans. So 9.5 points.

THIRD PLACE: Shadowninja with "Katy's Song" by Red House Painters

The best "sad" type of entry. A really good ballad full of feels. That's pretty much all there is to say. I love the dark vocals and the laid-back beat, and the outro is also goddamn good.
8.5 points

FOURTH PLACE: A tie between

Elite, with "Street Spirit (Fade Out)" by Radiohead

I love the vocal line in this. Strange because I really don't line Thom Yorke's timbre, I find him really tiring to listen to. But this song is fairly cool, and I expected a little bit more when you said it's the "most depressing Radiohead song", but what the hell, it's good.

Sneakyblueberry, with "Sleep And Dream" by Battle Of Mice

Talking about vocal lines, this is creepy. The vocals in here freak me out, but admittidely they are a bit annoying. Otherwise, this is another one of the songs that caputred better the "dark" vibe.

8 points

FIFTH PLACE: Scorpion, with "The Morning Never Came" by Swallow The Sun

Nice death/doom metal song. It has an Opeth vibe in the beginning but then everything sounds more ominous and menacing than Opeth. I really like the concept of the lyrics, and I think that it flows good enough - The thing is, I prefered some other tunes to this one, but this is good.

7.5 points

SIXTH PLACE: WebRaider, with "Voice Of The Soul" by Death

I like Death. Never really got into them, but I like their style. But this is not their usual style, infact, this is a 3-minute acoustic instrumental. It does a good job in creating a sad vibe, but that's about it - I would've sent something longer and more interesting, but not bad at all.

7 points

LAST PLACE: Evermind, with "Fear Of The Night" by Absolute Priority

It feels bad giving a band from my country the last place, but the truth is: this does not fit at all in what I asked you, Ev. I know, the concept is kinda dark, but the song just wasn't for me. If you had sent this in the previous round, I would've gave you a 7, but you picked the wrong round and so I'm sorry, but

5.5 points.

--- And there we go. The roulette is practically done, one more round left!

Sacul - 57 points
Elite - 56.5 points
Sneakyblueberry - 56 points
Shadowninja - 56 points
Nekov - 55 points
Scorpion - 53.5 points
Evermind - 51.5 points
Web Raider - 49.5 points

---
Ok so guys, this will be the last round with 8 players. The next round is just between the top two. So, with that, I ask you to please blow me away with some good closers, under 15 minutes in length. Just like the first round, anything that you feel that closes an album or a concert really well. Good luck with that!

Well, I almost don't listen to the creepy dark stuff. Whatever.

Shame you want the closer, I had a nice song in store, but it's not the closer. I'll send it as a bonus then. :lol

:victorydance:

I'm not sure why you haven't listened to King Crimson yet but if you finally decided you should do it be aware, there's between 3 and 4 very distinct eras (at least to my musical ear).
First 2 are more classic prog rock, 3rd era is weird, more 80's sound somehow but still very much prog rock and the last era is a more modern sounding prog.
"ITCOTCK" through "Islands"
"Lark's tongues in aspic" through "Red"
"Discipline" through "Three of a perfect pair"
"Thrak" through "The power to believe"


Also sent last round, let's see if I can score another winner and catch up with the guys on top

k, that's just really dumb then.
btw two songs from one artist when you're gonna have 64 songs total by the end of the survivor doesn't really harm variety much at all
and any good artist is gonna have two songs that sound pretty different from one another
