I haven't seen the rules yet, but if this is just a send song -> get score kind of roulette, I'll play. I've got plenty of garbage to send. Not interested in a roulette with a bunch of details or side games or whatever, so accept or reject my entry accordingly. :P

Like I said in the Roulette Tracker Thread, I'd be interested in playing as well. Don't wanna steal anybody's place away, though.

Also, fair warning if you decide to have me: I own albums made by 6 different bands in your last banned list, and know a few songs by maybe 10 other bands. So there's not really a lot of overlap between our music libraries, this could potentially be very interesting and even more likely go horribly wrong. ;)

You're in, bro. No side games. No crazy scoring. If you can handle a couple of themed rounds (Instrumental, Accoustic, Growlies), you'll be fine.

The first TAC Roulette had specifically themed rounds because of the people in it. I was trying to exlpore a few different things.

For this roulette, it's going to be ALL exploration! ;D

OK. I have 9 people signed up. That is good.



Welcome to The TAC Roulette V.2.


I am very happy to have you guys here. I see most of you in the Album Listening Thread, and I'm usually WTF on many of these albums! :lol

I never intended to have another Roulette, but while I was on DTF last night, I thought it would be cool if I did a Roulette with people I don't even know. Pretty sure none of us have had any interactions on DTF. I do remember Cody from a few years ago.
Try not to look at my banned list and think of what I might like. Send something YOU like.

The program is posted in the 2nd Reply. Any questions, please ask.

Like I said, I will, burn a CD for the car and listen to each round 4-6 times. I hope burning a CD isn't an old guy thing to do. ;D
I am not a fan of Growls. I'm just not. I'm throwing you guys a bone and will have a Growlie Round for you.
That said, if you happen to send some Growls in an open Round, you might want to tell me something about the track, or maybe what to listen for, or why you chose it.





Also, since I don't know any of you, perhaps we could go "around the room" and introduce ourselves.


I'll go first..My name is Tim, and I'll be 49 next month. I'm just south of Boston. Discovered DT when they were opening for Iron Maiden in 1992. Joined DTF in 2004, but actually joined the old board when SFAM was released.

Cool?




And finally: SEND FOR ROUND 1!

running into a theme of picking out songs that have primarily clean vocals but like, a small amount of harsh vocals too & i dunno what i'm gonna do. probably send it anyways. destrage of all things got 9/10 in your first roulette apparently so what the hell should i even do, why bother toning it down  :corn

If you like it, send it.
 
The Destrage track that lonestar sent was awesome, and it fit the Round 1 theme great. I found the track very addictive. That said, I sampled the rest of their album and hated it, so there's that too! ;D

He doesn't really like them, he just put them there so you don't send them cause he's too girly for these bands.

Actually, that reminds me, I never responded to Sacul. I actually have The Sound Of Perseverance. Honestly, I would rather watch some live clips of Death on YouTube. The musicianship is off the charts, but those vocals..

I also have Ghost Reveries, and I generally like it. Opeth is another band that I'd rather watch than listen to. And it doesn't help that Ackerfeldt's clean vocals blow.

Me now  ;D
So I'm 34 and I live in Poland, yep  ;) In city called Gdańsk (Danzig) to be precious. For some it's a cradle of metal in Poland, for example mighty Behemoth comes from Gdańsk, so as many many other bands that are know in Poland or outside. I joined DTF in 2008, and I was not active through couple last years because of life which made me some surprises. As some of You can know, my real name isn't Cody (it would sound strange in Poland where 50% of people have names like Krzysztof, Janusz, Mateusz etc :P ) My real name is Konrad  ;) I work in a medicine industry. What I'm listetning to is a variety from Sting to death-math-core-porn-grind whatever You name it metal ;) Have a good one, oh and I don't like Winger that much  :D

Hey, I'm Lukas, I'm 23 and live in Vienna in Autria. My music tastes are really all over the place, but you certainly won't get any classic metal artists from me. Not because I don't listen to any, but what I listen to is already on your banned list. Lately I've been listening to more quiet Indie music, I'm not sure if that's the best route to go for this roulette though. I'll probably go with some other things I love instead. Still, how loud is your car in general? Mainly I'd like to know because I would send some songs with some quiet parts, but those tend to not go over that well when there's a roaring enging drowning out all the music.

I'm the Croatian guy with the most boring username ever (or the most unimaginative). I've been DT fan since 2010 and I still a big fan, just don't listen to them or similar music that much anymore.
I like to think I have broad music taste, of course there won't be many growlies here but I send ton of that stuff in other roulettes so it's cool :P We have some bands in common so I think it won't be hard for me to find other things you might like :azn:

Hey guys, I'm Dennis and I'm 21 years old and you're watching My Life As A Virgin

I like to think I listen to a very wide range of music, but I'll save the deathcore for the growl round. Me, I live in Amsterdam and I will start my second year of international music management on Wednesday. I've met awesome people from all over the world there but even across the seas everyone has shit music taste. So I'm going to make it a challenge to show them what REAAAL music is.

Oh yeah and I'm probably the 'newest' DT fan of any active roulette player. Found them around 2013 I think (somewhere between the release of The Enemy Inside and DT12). And I'm disappointed to say I've already moved on to a lot of bands I currently enjoy more. I still love DT but I just don't listen to them a lot anymore.

EDIT: About the growl round. Does it have to be 100% growls or may they also be mixed vocals (growls + clean vocals)?

When Day and Dream Unite. A very strong song by Dream Theater and I'd have to say, Charlie Dominici sung excellently..... Remember when I said Dominici sung excellently? I lied.

Memes aside, I'm Matthijs and I'm 21 years old.

I finished a bachelor in Biomedical Engineering this year but I realised it's not what I want to do with my life so no I'm switching to Artificial Intelligence which I'm loving so far (my student loan debt will be massive tho since it'll take two extra years of studying before I'm doing Masters  :P)

I discovered DT around the release of A Dramatic Turn of Events and joined DTF before the release of The Astonishing. Like Train I don't listen much to them anymore, I think this year I just listened to SFAM and Octavarium once and that's it. I mainly stayed here for the General Music Forum, I discovered so much amazing music here. It's also great to hook up with fellow DTFers at concerts :metal 

As for tastes I love modern prog like Haken, SW/Porcupine Tree, The Dear Hunter and I also really like post rock. Besides that I listen to a bit of a lot of things like Indie, pop, classical, minimalstic etc. I'll send soon, got to make a list first tho, since the amount bands I want to send you is going to be bigger than the amount of rounds :p


I might be overlooking it but is there a length limit?
