Ok, enough of this Blondie garbage.  Lets get to some rocking results!  All great selections by everyone, I enjoyed them all.  Great job!

Evermind:

Bloodbound- Satanic Panic:  Pure Power Metal!  This to me sounds like a combination of Primal Fear meets Hammerfall.  I found the chorus to be very catchy and the song very enjoyable overall.  I've never been a huge fan of Hammerfall, I can only take them in smaller doses.  And with Bloodbound, I found that they leaned more towards Hammerfall then Primal Fear.  Great song though.  8

Jingle:

Avantasia- Toy Factory:  Avantasia is a band that gets lots of love and I've tried to get into them a few times.  But I always found them to be hit or miss.  Some songs were outstanding, while others were just dripping in excess cheese.  The songs that I recall kicking ass had Russell, Ripper and Kiske on the vocals.  There is something about Tobias and his vocals that just don't connect with me.  This song, however, did connect.  I knew that Alice Cooper did some vocals, but never really checked out this song.  How in the world that this song isn't Tim's all time favorite is a mystery.  Almost a prog type song with Alice on vocals!  A TAC dream!  8.5

Fluff:

Santana- Toussaint Overture:  I've really come to enjoy guitar instrumentals a lot over the last few years.  Moore, Macalpine, Batio, and all the guitar shreeders from Shrapnel is great material.  I've always heard that Santana was very influential, but never checked him out.  I always just associate him with that song with that matchstick guy.  I enjoyed this tune much more than I thought I would, especially the last two minutes.  Good tune. 7

Paul:

Q5- Missing in Action:  Q5 has been on my radar for years, I've been familiar with the title track Steel the Light and I've heard nothing but good things about that album and the follow-up.  Those two albums really have a cult status and it must be for good reason.  This song is an old school ass kicker!!  Classic metal and a great choice.  8.5

Brent-

Snake Eyes- Time of Dismay:  Again, a Primal Fear type song (you guys must realize I like that band).  This time, I got a sense of a combination of Primal Fear and Running Wild.  The vocalist seems to be a mix of Ralf/Rolf and the song just kicks ass.  Great screaming metal vocals and top notch overall.  9

Wolf:

Black Majesty- Firestorm:  Obviously some Power Metal can get over the top cheesy.  This song is great power metal without crossing the cheese line and I enjoyed it.  I even found at some points in the song that the vocalist can sound a bit like Todd La Torre.  Thats a very good thing! 8

TAC:

Golden Resurrection- See My Commands:  Great song!!  Symphonic Christian Power Metal and a kick ass one at that!  Great vocals and the guitar player looks and reminds me of Michael Romeo.  This chorus probably stuck in my head the longest.  Cool tune! 8.5

Splent:

Sheriff- When I'm With You:  This would have been a bonus point attempt by Splent and it was a safe attempt at that.  Right square in the safe comfort zone of 80's power ballads.  This would be one of those songs that I like, but would never classify as a Jason classic.  With that being said, I can only imagine how many guys have gotten lucky to this song in its history! 7.5

Hath:

Brazen Abbot- Nightmares:  This band would be of the graduating class of Whitesnake, Yngwie and Rainbow.  This class would get an A from me and this is newer rock done right!  Along with Brents song, I would say this one was my favorite of the round.  Very good! 9

Woot!  I'll take a 2nd place score.  This is gonna be a barn-burner right to the finish methinks.

I had this exact Avantasia song lined up for Round 2. :lol

8 isn't that bad, but not that good either. Let's see if I can improve in the next round.

Indeed it is.  :D  Didn't even notice the typo.  I will send today before I head to the Avantasia concert.

@ Ruslan and Jon... early bird gets the worm!  Might have to pull out my next 'cheat' before one of any of you fuckers do!

Yay. Hey I'm still in it even though I'm in 2nd to last.

So that DIDN'T get me a bonus point? Like do we have to say "This is a bonus point song" Or something?

It would be hard enough to nail the bonus point BAND.  It would be hard enough to nail the bonus point SONG if the bands were given.

With the unknown of both, I'm not touching that risk at all.  20 specific songs from the 80s.  Talk about a needle in a haystack!  Or a clean bill of heath at a pr0n convention.

Glad you liked the Q5. I love the first one but the 2nd went in a more AOR direction which didn't sit well with me at the time. Still, it's a good album, just different to the ass kicking first one.

Couple of bands to strike off my list too.

Yeah it's a tough challenge. That's why I tried to give the hint that these songs are played on House of Hair. But still tough I know

Sent.  Decided to play it clean and fair this round, and going 100% on my own merits.  I think this roulette has a pretty wide open field of possibilities, so there's no need to piss on anyone else's territory - though there are still ways to cheat - like Alice on the mic.   ;D

Come to think of it now though, my submission might be a bit of a cheat.

Yeah, I might be going just a bit outside the host's comfort zone with power / progressive metal... but that's kind of the point of me signing up in the first place.

Will send in a few minutes.

I imagine you get as many "guesses" as there are submission rounds.  And if you guess wrong you get the score of the song you attempted.

As many guesses as you want. If it's not one of the select few, it will just get graded accordingly.
