Less then a year after my first roulette, here I am again!
It's earlier than I've predicted. Lots of people actually passed their turn to host roulettes, so it's my turn again now, and it was a really pleasant surprise!

After ignoring the horrible pun in the title, let me just say thanks once again, to all those who have participated in last year's roulette. Some pretty big discoveries were made because of you and most of all, I had a lot of fun. But let's come straight to the point here.

New year, new roulette, new rules.

Last time I opted for 8 rounds, with 8 contestants. This year, I've decided to step things up a bit, so we'll have:

THE TEN ELEVEN CONTESTANTS



1. Sacul
2. Train Of Naught
3. splent
4. Elite
5. Tomislav95
6. Scorpion
7. Parama
8. twosuitsluke
9. stadler
10. Tyrias
11. Evermind (surprise last participant)

These guys will fight for
THE TEN ROUNDS

ROUND 1: Openers
ROUND 2: Open round
ROUND 3: Joyous round
ROUND 4: Open round
ROUND 5: Instrumentals
ROUND 6: Open round
ROUND 7: Dark round
ROUND 8: Open round

6 contestants get eliminated at this point.

ROUND 9: Last round (Unique/Epic round)

As you can see I went for really simple rounds themes, because I like to keep it simple in this sense, and more honest (I just want new songs, dammit.). The next roulettes might get more complicated, though.

From this moment you can send for ROUND 9 - THE LAST ROUND




-------------------------------------------------------------
To have a general idea of my tastes I suggest you to have a look at:

My most recent top 50 albums list
Last year's roulette (warning: contains dangerous amounts of cuteness)

I hope rules won't be too strict. After few roulettes in which I was sending softer stuff, I may start sending heavier and harsher shit :P

I've been in a lot of roulettes lately, and besides, you didn't play in my v2, so out of cat pictures and power metal you get only cat pictures.
