Buddyhunter1's Roulette II: Electric Boogaloo - IT'S OVER!
« on: June 13, 2015, 11:37:26 AM »
First Roulette: http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=39608.0

---PARTICIPANTS

1: senecadawg2 (Former Champion)
2: Sacul
3: Evermind
4: Scorpion
5: mikemangioy
6: Shadow Ninja 2.0
7: Lucien
8: Dr. DTVT


---RULES---

- Like last time, there will be eight rounds. As for round themes, I'm simplifying things a bit this time around. The rounds will be:
     Round 1: Opener (Mostly an open round, but send something that would be good for opening up an album or live show)
     Round 2: Heavy
     Round 3: Atmospheric
     Round 4: Open Round
     Round 5: Heavy (again)
     Round 6: Atmospheric (again)
     Round 7: Open Round
     Round 8: Open round with maybe a special twist to it.
- Submitted songs cannot be 14 minutes or longer, unless the round specifically allows for something longer.
- A YouTube link is good for song submissions. Spotify works too, as well as any website that doesn't force me to sign up to listen to it.
- Last time around I graded songs using a score for each one. For this roulette, I will simply be ranking the songs for each round, and the higher your song ranks, the more points you get. (First place is 10 points, second place is 9, and so on and so forth, down to 3 points for last place. This should keep the scores for each participant a bit more dynamic than last time.
- No more than two songs per band can be submitted in this roulette. Check out the "Newly Banned" section below to see which ones become unavailable. I will also add bands to this list if I get a submission that I like enough.

Since the banned list doesn't indicate if you love/hate some of those bands, wouldn't you mind describing your tastes a bit more? That way I can send you nice stuff :D .

« Reply #14 on: June 15, 2015, 08:21:14 PM »
Alright, got all our participants! Round 1 should start pretty soon, either when Elite posts his final results, or sooner if I'm allowed.

Remember, the theme for Round 1 is something that would be good for an album / live show / side opener. It doesn't have to be the first track on an album or anything, just something with that "opener" kind of vibe. Start thinking about what you want to send, and I'll let you know when you can start submitting. :)

Can we also include the link to short intro before the actual opener song? Like FAS + The Enemy Inside.

---ROUND 1 RESULTS---

1st Place: Dr. DTVT
Enslaved - Clouds


Alright, so here we've got a mildly-heavy black metal song with some progressive elements, and it's a combination that works pretty well. The first two minutes or so of this song are absolutely fantastic; the layered guitars really create a great atmosphere and the chord progression works very well for both of the riffs. The vocals come in after this section, and while the cleans are quite nice, especially when they first come in, the harsh vocals could be better. I don't usually mind the raspy, black metal style of screams, but these ones sound particularly weak compared to others I've heard in the same vein. They don't really hurt the song for me, but some slightly better ones would have been welcome. There's a really nice instrumental section in the second half where the rhythm changes up and we get some more great guitar work. The choruses and verses are okay, but not fantastic. Not a perfect song, but it's got a great atmosphere and some excellent sections, so it ended up just barely beating the next song for first place.

2nd Place: Scorpion
Kalmah - Rust Never Sleeps


Like Dr. DTVT's submission, this song starts out amazingly well. It begins with a buildup with acoustic guitars and horns that then break into a fucking AWESOME riff. Like, it's one of those riffs where it's pretty much impossible not to headbang to. If the rest of the song were that kickass, this would have been the best song this round, no questions asked. As it is though, the rest of the song is good, but doesn't quite live up to the awesomeness that is the first minute. The growls are good, and the lead guitar lays down some good melodies here and there; the brief section before the tradeoff solos is especially nice. Solid melodic death metal, with a lot of energy. Not much more to say about it.

3rd Place: senecadawg2
Headspace - Invasion


I'm getting strong OSI vibes from this song for whatever reason. The verses have a really funky rhythm that's hard to pin down, and they transition and build up very well to the prechorus and chorus, both of which are quite catchy. This song does a good job at holding back the heavy riffs until when the song really gets into gear during the chorus and the section after the second chorus. The song changes up a lot in the second half, though not always in a cohesive way; the section in the middle with the different tempo feels especially out of place. I feel like if the song kept going the direction it was going before this section while still introducing new elements it would have been a bit better. The outro is quite nice, calming things down with acoustic guitar and strings before the full band comes back in for a dramatic finale. It's an alright change of pace from the rest of the song, though it's not my favorite part. Overall, this was a pretty good song, though it feels like pretty standard progressive metal to me. This is a similar problem I had with the next song (albeit to a somewhat lesser extent with this one), and I was debating for a while which one to rank higher, but I eventually decided to give the slight nod to this one.

4th Place: Evermind
Beyond The Bridge - The Call


Here we've got a slice of good, though fairly standard prog metal. It's got some nice guitar riffage, and the chorus is definitely the highlight of the song. It's very soaring and powerful; probably the best chorus out of any of the songs this round, actually. While this is a good song, sound-wise I don't feel like it really offers anything new. It's got that traditional prog metal sound that I've heard many times before, and these days I don't typically find myself listening to bands like this unless they incorporate some special influence or element into their sound that sets them apart from the rest of the pack. I also feel like this song takes a dip in quality from the spoken-word section onwards, especially since it seems to just end out of nowhere. The riff after the spoken-word and the guitar and keyboard solos seem like they're setting up for one last chorus or a proper finale, but then the song just stops. Oh well. Still a solid song, though probably not something I'll return to much in the future.

5th Place: mikemangioy
The Mars Volta - Son Et Lumiere / Intertiatic E.S.P.


This song is a lot more interesting and unique in terms of the sound and instrumentation department. The way it uses lots of different effects and instruments creates a really trippy sound, especially towards the end during that section with the tribal-sounding percussion. While this song gets a big thumbs up from me in the sound department, as for the song itself, I feel like it could be better. In particular, the chorus gets pretty annoying after a while, mostly likely due to the vocal line. The verses are a bit better, and I like the Son Et Lumiere part, which works as a great intro. Overall, this song has me a bit interested in the band, as it seems like they're got a really interesting and experimental sound, but as for this song on its own, it's merely decent.

6th Place: Sacul
Refused - New Noise


I can't say I expected to get any punk this roulette. :lol It's not a genre I really listen to, but this song is actually pretty good. It starts out with a nice buildup, and the main riff during the heavier sections is quite enjoyable, as are the other heavy riffs in the song. The verses are a lot quieter, and while they make for a good contrast in dynamics, I'm not really a fan of them. Same goes for the vocals; it's just not really I style I'm keen on. Lastly, the electronic section near the beginning and the weird interlude towards the end keep the song interesting. This doesn't seem like something I'd go out of my way to listen to, but it's still enjoyable.

7th Place: Shadow Ninja 2.0
The Dillinger Escape Plan - Prancer


I got a lot of heavy songs this round, but this one's definitely the heaviest. It's pretty much a nonstop barrage of pummeling riffs and crazy drums with some technical rhythms, and while that's all normally right up my alley, this song wasn't all that memorable to me. There's not really any riffs or sections that especially stick out to me, though it at least all sounds quite nice. I guess if I were just in the mood for something loud and angry, this would be good for that purpose, but otherwise I don't see myself really getting into it. But hey, the next round's a heavy round, so you can try again next time!

8th Place: Lucien
Beethoven - Symphony #5, Movement IV


I got the feeling that you were going to send me classical music at some point in this roulette. :lol Well, what can I say? I'm sure I've at least heard part of this piece somewhere before; the part at the four minute mark sounds especially familiar. It's nice, but classical music always just feels like background music to me; something that works well when accompanying something else, but not something I can really get invested in on its own. Plus, I've definitely heard better classical music than this before, like the Firebird Suite, Bald Mountain, etc. Not sure what kind of a result you were expecting from sending me this, but better luck next time.


THE SCORE SO FAR:

Dr. DTVT: 10
Scorpion: 9
senecadawg2: 8
Evermind: 7
mikemangioy: 6
Sacul: 5
Shadow Ninja 2.0: 4
Lucien: 3


No artists banned this round.

Well, I got a lot of heavy songs this round, and I'm ready for more, because Round Two is a heavy round! Mildly heavy or ridiculously brutal, the choice is yours, as long as it's good. :)

DTVT is right on track with that submission. Having seen all the themes before the start of the roulette I'd already sort of decided on which tracks to send for each round. Enslaved was going to be round 2.

Oh well, I'll find something different. Glad you enjoyed headspace a decent amount. Like I said in the pm, not my favorite track from the album, but the other was too long. I'd check it out if you get the chance. "Daddy Fucking Loves You"

Well, this Beyond the Bridge song segues straight into the other, because it's a prog concept album and you know how it goes. The next song has the last chorus you've missed in its ending.

But I'm alright with the middle-of-the-pack score. Will send the next song in a few hours.

Edit: or maybe tomorrow.

I wouldn't call Gojira vocal's core-like, and I'm not really a fan of Tommy's harsh vocals but BTBAM is awesome enough as a whole to make up for it. So there. :lol

Anyways, it's not like the vocals in that song really hurt my enjoyment of it or anything.
...in my opinion
