I can play, but i'm pretty sure I'll mostly sens stuff outside of your comfort zone, judging by your top 50.

Well, thinking about that, I'd agree to get in as the eleventh participant just because it would be fun to screw up your well-thought and well-prepared roulette system. :lol

Here, I've got a sad cat for you:

If you're serious, you're in.

Also, guys, check the main post. It has now Round info, and you can send for round 1!

Didn't you see how serious my cat picture was? Sure I'm serious.

No idea what to send though. :lol

So should our songs be the real openers or can they be in the middle on the album but have that "opener" feel?

Just looking for that feel, really. I don't care if it's a closer or a center piece or whatever.

Spoilers!

Also, didn't mention that you can send either Youtube or Spotify or even Bandcamp, if needed.

If a band has an intro track leading into the second track that is the first real song of the album, can we send the second track instead?

You can basically send the ninth track of whatever if you think it has the "opener" feel.

I figure the people in Haken thread are pretty tired of my posts by now, so I'll write here since all important people are reading this anyway: visited the record store today and they still didn't have Affinity. :facepalm: I'm going to be the only person on board who haven't heard it at this rate.

Oh, but I was actually serious. If given the opportunity, I would definitely send two songs a round as two 'different' participants.

Hey, that's pretty smart. Double the songs, double the chances of winning (but you'd songblock yourself).

I still didn't send anything because I don't know to play safe or not. I'd rather risk but I'm pussy :sadpanda:

I wish I could burn a floppy disk of Affinity. It would be perfect.

I have no intentions of playing with the goal of winning here, so get ready to have your comfort zone crushed. Also, I never understood what "opener feel" meant exactly, so I'll just send the first song from an album :lol

Let's hope that I can do better than the last time - though if the first couple rounds go meh I might just take the Shadow Ninja approach - saying fuck it and just sending something that I happen to be digging myself.

We'll see.

Mikemangioy, do you still listen to a lot of straight forward metal? I mean, I've moved towards progressive metal because with a lot of new metal I hear nowadays I feel I've heard it all before. I do still get blown away by some metal bands but it doesn't happen as often as it used to.

Would you say you have gone the same way or can I get away with sending straight forward metal bands you may not have heard?
