Wow, and I thought I was slacking when I failed to send something two days in a row after the previous round's results. :lol

Yusssss! Didn't think you'd like it that much because I've not usually had much luck when sending that band in roulettes, but I'm quite happy that it paid off this round. :victorydance:

---ROUND 4 RESULTS---

1st Place: Parama
Brand New - Limousine


This song ended up being my favorite of the round, despite being of a genre I donít usually listen to. Itís very catchy, itís got both quiet and loud parts, and it does a very good job at transitioning between the two. The main focus of the song is the long buildup towards the end, which despite being very repetitive, is done really well. It does a great job at gradually ramping up in intensity, especially in the vocal department, and I love how little background elements and melodies are slowly introduced until the song explodes into the guitar solo outro, which is a great payoff to the long buildup. With poor execution, the buildup could have easily ruined the song, but thatís thankfully not the case, and the result is a song that I really enjoyed.

2nd Place: Scorpion
Nevermore - The River Dragon Has Come


This is the third Nevermore song Iíve gotten in my roulettes, and I got pretty much what I expected from it: a solid metal track with some really awesome guitar work. If thereís one thing this band does well itís really great down-tuned guitar riffs, and this song has plenty of that. The vocal melodies and delivery are pretty good as well. If I had one complaint, itís that the song doesnít really progress all that much; sections are re-used multiple times without any changes in delivery or execution, and the track feels a bit repetitive as a result. That didnít hamper my enjoyment of it all that much though; this was still a really good song.

3rd Place: Tomislav95
Redemption - Black And White World


This one was definitely a grower for me. The first couple of listens didnít register as much for me besides generic DT-esque prog metal, but I eventually came to really enjoy it. My one main issue with the track is that the first few minutes arenít that interesting. The song takes a while to get going, but when it finally does, itís really fantastic. The solo section towards the end is awesome, the fretless bass break that follows it is cool, and the outro is satisfying enough. The song also has a really good flow and sense of momentum throughout, which gives it a lot of energy. Overall, this was a pretty standard but well-executed piece of prog metal.

4th Place: splent
Rush - Losing It


Iíve yet to hear a Rush song that I absolutely loved (except for maaaaybe Marathon), but this song was nice, and a nice change of pace from the bandís usual sound. Itís very somber and emotional, quite beautiful, even. I usually donít comment on the lyrics of songs, but I thought the ones here were very well-written. The vocal melodies are also very memorable and enjoyable. That said, there were some parts of the song that I didnít like, notably the electric violin solo and the ending. The solo is very noisy and doesnít fit in with the tone of the song at all, in my opinion. I also thought that the song fades out way too early. Those complaints aside, this was still a really nice listen.

5th Place: Train of Naught
Black Peaks - Set In Stone


My one sentence opinion of this song is that half of it is great and half of it is subpar. The choruses get pretty annoying after a while, and the verses arenít that special either. Thankfully, the rest of the song is much better. The middle section has a really cool vibe to it, the guitar solo towards the end is awesome, and the song ends with a really badass-sounding post-metal riff. This trackís short and energetic enough to be decently enjoyable despite a lot of parts not being that good, at least in my opinion.

6th Place: Elite
Karnivool - Deadman


Thereís parts of this song that I really like, but overall I think itís way too long and drawn-out. Itís got some really groovy rhythms and the heavier parts of the song are really cool, but it really drags towards the end. The ambient section that starts around the middle of the track goes on for way too long; thereís a point where it sounds like itís going to explode back into a heavy part, only for it to retreat back into a quiet break that begins the buildup over again, and I donít think it works well at all. The finale of the song is also pretty underwhelming. This was an okay track, but I think it could have been executed a lot better.

7th Place: LordCost
Rishloo - Dark Charade


My opinions of this song are pretty damn similar to the above submission. Itís a long track with lots of cool moments scattered here and there, but itís all spread pretty thin. For every memorable section, thereís also a lot of filler that doesnít register as much. The track does have a pretty cool atmosphere, and each section flows to the next really well, but overall itís just too unmemorable.

8th Place: Evermind
ReVamp - The Anatomy Of A Nervous Breakdown: Neurasthenia


This song was okay, but I didnít really like its sound. I donít know, the mix of power, symphonic and industrial metal just wasnít that appealing to me. There also werenít too many sections that stuck out to me as being that good, though the chorus was decently catchy. I also canít complain about the vocals; Floor and Devin are both great at what they do, though their performances for this song werenít amazing or anything. But yeah, I didnít really dig this one too much.


Songs banned this round: Nevermore, Rush
I'm also going to ban a couple that I've gotten a bunch in my roulettes and I don't really want any more songs from:
Protest The Hero, Chimp Spanner


THE SCORE SO FAR:
Parama: 35
Scorpion: 30
Elite: 29
Evermind: 27
splent: 27
Train of Naught: 24
Tomislav95: 19
LordCost: 17


Halfway there! Send your Round 5 submission whenever.

Haha yeah it gets kinda repetitive. Maybe should've sent a different song from this album but I love the ending so much. Reminds me heavily of Mastodon.

I've never seen anyone talking about Black Peaks here, I'm surprised someone sent them! I considered sending a song in this roulette from their debut album but I wasn't so sure Buddy would like it. Set In Stone is probably in the middle in my ranking of the album, Hang 'Em High, the closer and the two songs of their previous EP (Say You Will and Saviour) are my favourites

Set In Stone, Say You Will and Glass Built Castles are my favorite. Really good band actually, one of the better things I found this year.

Buddy, for next round, my band is not on youtube or spotify but they are on bandcamp. Can I just send you the bandcamp link? The download for their EP is free of charge so it shouldn't be a problem but I wanted to make sure.
