Welcome!!


I have been informed that it is my turn for a roulette.  Earlier then expected, but that's ok.  This is my first roulette, so I will be taking Chad's advice and following the KISS concept.  I am shooting for 8-10 participants and 8-10 rounds.  That will be finalized in the next couple of days.

All rounds will be marked on a scale of 1-10 and all rounds will be completely open.

As for tastes, I think its pretty well known that I am a 70's/80's/early 90's heavy metal/hard rock/classic rock/some prog guy.  There are newer bands/songs that I like, but most have that old school sound.  So I am open to newer music/bands, but just beware that I am not too keen on modern radio rock sounding bands.

Some other musical notes:

1) If you send me something outside of the rock genre, it very likely won't work out well.
2) If you send me something with growls, that will very likely get you a zero.
3) If you send me "The Stranger" by Geoff Tate, you are out of the competition for good.

As for sending me the songs, I actually prefer youtube links.  That's where I listen to most of my samples as I tend to read comments on songs as I listen to them.  I can assure you that sound quality on youtube will not affect your score whatsoever.

If you could email me the songs at:

jasonjwilliams1978@yahoo.ca

In the subject line, could you include your DTF nickname, song/band and round.  This will help me organize the songs.

I don't have Spotify and don't have much interest in it.  If your song isn't on youtube, we could figure something out (mp3, etc).

BONUS POINTS/SONGS:  There are just over 20 songs that I am thinking of.  I don't have any of the songs on my iPOD and I am just a casual fan of all of them.  All of these tunes were mainstream successful songs from the 80's/early 90's (some bigger then others) and all are songs you would typically hear on Dee Sniders House of Hair.  If you are willing to gamble and get one of these songs correct, you would get an 11/10 along with a wild card do-over for any round.  But this is where the gamble comes into play.  It's very unlikely that I haven't heard of a mainstream rock/metal song from the 80's/early 90's, so it will be tough to send me something I haven't heard before.  So if it's not on my iPOD list, that would typically mean I am just a casual fan of it and it would likely get around a 7ish/10.  Everyone would be familiar with these  bonus songs, so there is nothing obscure whatsoever. But if the gamble pays off, you get big points.  And I will just note that all of these songs would fit in nicely with whats on my iPOD.  But it has to be the correct band and song to get the bonus!

As for my list and banned artists, I will just give you what's on my iPOD.  This includes pretty much everything that I have.  If I have put "banned" beside a band, don't bother lol.  If a band isn't banned, I would be open to getting something else from them.  If one of the bands interests you, just PM me and I will tell you what I have from them.

There really isn't many metal/rock songs from the 70's/80's/early 90's that I don't like.  So if you stay within my comfort zone, you will always do well.  Hopefully we can start this up in the next 2-3 days.  Once I get all the songs from the players, I will post results usually within 4 days.  I will try to keep it going at a good pace.  But I likely won't do too detailed/long of write-ups/reviews, just cut to the chase.

On the one hand, it would be hilarious playing in someone's roulette who only listens to music I put on maybe 3 times a year. On the other hand, I'm not sure if that doesn't defeat the purpose of a roulette :lol.

I had good practice with Brent's; he seems to share similar tastes to you. This means I'm probably going to fail. However, hopefully some of my rejected submissions to him will work for you.

Glad to be along.   I think I will just concentrate on introducing you to new bands jj rather than guessing stuff you already know.  If that costs me , then so be it.

I'm ready to rumble  :metal

A lot of the stuff I have lined up ain't on Youtube jj .  I can do mp3->flv conversion and upload myself but there will be no comments etc..... obviously , unless you want me to make some up  :lol   In that case I am guessing mp3 is just as easy for you?

I'm not an 80s guy, but I do dig a lot of 60s/70s classic/blues rock/early hard rock guitar-heavy type stuff. If you want someone to send mostly that kind of thing, I could join.
