 :rollin at some of those cat pics in the first post.

Also, nice to see my song isn't worse than King of Errors (in my opinion it is though ;) ). However since Elite sent his best song, I'll probably return to the last place anyway.

Damn right a sent a good song. Though this still doesn't mean anything really :lol It could be a 7 and still be the best song I sent so far.

Glad y'all like your new pics  :lol

By the way, here are the results:

Here they come!

Round 3: Strange round - The Results


This round was very interesting, and freaking fun. Oh, the fun I had listening to this songs, you have no idea. Each song is memorable for its own characteristics, and it was very varied also in sound. The chaaart:

FIRST PLACE: Elite, with "Ars Moriendi" by Mr. Bungle

Look dude, you're first! You've made it! Told you you had potential. Indeed, I expected Mr. Bungle in this round, as it is a band/project that I hear a lot about on Facebook/Plug DJ sessions, but never eventually given them a fair chance. Turns out that this song is freaking insane. It's quirky, eclectic, goes all over the place in merely 4 minutes, but manages to stay cohesive in its numerous ever-shifting sections. It's practically a fast folk song with dance, metal and god knows what else quick bursts, that make it interesting. Another cool thing is the vocals, Mike Patton sounds really goofy and " fat " in a sense.

9.5 points

SECOND PLACE: Sacul, with "Mbinguni Amina" by David Maxim Micic

Sacul sent me this song from an artist that he never sends in roulettes ever. But this time he sent another song, not Where Is Now  :lol - Even if I prefer that to this song, I think this was the perfect fit for this round as it is proggy and djenty, but with folk and operatic influences, and lyrics sung in some sort of unknown language (it's not serbian, I've looked it up), with a slightly creepy atmosphere. But it's so fun and catchy, and pretty addicting too, like the rest of the stuff I've heard from David, either from his solo or from Destiny Potato. Really really cool turn on djent, a "style" that would be pretty repetitive if used wrongly, IMO.

9 points

THIRD PLACE: Evermind, with "Brass Goggles" by Steam Powered Giraffe

As soon as I read the name of this band I was like "STEAMPUNKSTEAMPUNKSTEAMPUNK" - turns out I was right. Indeed, Steam Powered Giraffe are a band with steampunk imagery, and god knows how much I love that style. So, you were pretty lucky with that, Evermind. Add a really cool bluesy/ragtime song about a robot trying to be human, with "La-da-dadada"s and layered barber-shop-quartet-style vocals, this was an instant win. Once again, really fun song, and I feel like I'm gonna play this on guitar to death.  :tup

8.5 points

FOURTH PLACE: Nekov, with "Dr. Fluffels" by Electrocution 250

Oooh man, Peter Wildoer plays in this. He's such a cool drummer and person. Yeah, so, reading on Wikipedia, this band attempts to write "cartoon music" with extreme prog metal influences. And that's exactly what Dr. Fluffels is. A beastly instrumental, with a djenty base and lots and lots of solos (even a drum solo  :heart ), but featuring that kind of cartoony and familyfriendly-wii-videogame-soundtrack vibe that adds that wackiness to it, and works pretty well. The only thing is that this was not as weird as I thought it was gonna be, but still, it's a real good composition, so that's enough for me  :metal

8 points

FIFTH PLACE: ShadowNinja, with "A Tapdancer's Dilemma" by Diablo Swing Orchestra

I was familiar with DSO's type of sound, they're pretty famous for that. This song was OK, fun, but with a creepy turn on the lyrics, even though the vocals are funny enough. But it lacked a bit of the fun that the songs above it have, IMO. But still, it's pretty good.

7.5 points

SIXTH PLACE: Sneakyblueberry, with "Clara" by Scott Walker

This song scared me because of its length at first, then I proceeded to listen to it, and last night I had nightmares. Thanks Sneaky!  :rollin
Seriously though, this song might be the creepiest song I've ever heard - It has almost no instruments. It's all scary sounds and electronics, with eventually those creepy violin bursts and vocals. The vocals sound really desperate, and remind me of Lou Reed. From what I've gathered, it's about Mussolini's wife, but I have no Idea, still - the lyrics also contribute the creepiness
A man came up towards the body
and poked it with a stick
It rocked stiffly
and twisted around at the end of the rope
- gaah, shivers everytime.
I mean, it was a nice and very different entry, but I wouldn't come back to it ever in history, sorry  :biggrin:

7 points

SEVENTH PLACE: Scorpion, with "Silent Film" by Dog Fashion Disco

This was another ok track, which tricks you: at first it sounds pretty normal, yeah a bit eccentric but normal - but towards the end it goes completely nuts, with quick riffs and stops with "oohhs" and "aahs" and "I was just kidding" and all sorts of stuff that made me laugh a lot  :lol
Interesting song, but didn't grab my attention enough.

6 points

LAST PLACE: WebRaider, with "Through The Ticket... Across Endless Mountains" by Exotic Animal Petting Zoo

Ouch. After two first places in a row, you've fallen pretty down below, WebRaider. Sorry to say but this song was just regular, didn't find any kind of "Strangeness"  to it, and it felt pretty stale nevertheless. Just some regular metalcore, with a slight prog influence - but as I said, it didn't catch my interest at all, sorry  :-\

5 points

And so

Sacul - 24 pts.
Nekov - 24 pts.
WebRaider - 23.5 pts.
Scorpion - 23 pts.

Once again, open Round. Send whatever.

oh ffs I sent a Mr Bungle song and had to change it damn you Elite.

I can't stomach all of The Drift in one sitting, either, I don't blame you.  I don't even think I've EVER listened to the whole thing all the way through cos its so unsettling, but it's undoubtedly the strangest music I've ever heard and I feel like it should've won by that alone but what are you gonna do. 

last fucking place fuck.

Curious, what song would you have sent? Because obviously Ars Moriendi isn't even their strangest, but it's probably their most accessible strange song.

I think I sent Air Conditioned Nightmare?  I thought that was more accessible but maybe its not strange enough.  I remember that blowing my mind first time I heard cos of all the genre shifts.

The Air-Conditioned Nightmare is brilliant, nice pick! But basically all of California is. Goodbye Sober Day is nice and whacky as well, but if ou really want the weird shit, you should listen to Disco Volante. The problem with that album is that it's so inaccessible that it's not always nice to listen to, although it does have quite a few fantastic parts.

Also, I'm listening to that Scott Walker song and holy shit, this is unlike anything I've ever heard before.

Right?  Scott Walker is fucking unsettling shit.

 :sadpanda: Had a feeling it was risky to send that song but given what I consider "strange" in music is usually not the same as others. I listen to lots of quirky music so its not so strange to me on the whole.

Still not the last place! And only one and a half point from the leader, so I just need to get the first place in one or two rounds and here we go. Besides, Sacul has already sent Destiny Potato and David Maxim Micic so he'll probably end up on the last place next round. :biggrin:

I've got a few songs to choose from, will probably send something this evening.

Oh and thank you Shadow Ninja for introducing me to this Steam Powered Giraffe song. :tup

Dang. That is one of my favourite whacky songs, I love everything about it. Ars Moriendi is a worthy winner though, I briefly considered sending that one too.

Open... will probably send tomorrow.
