Title: The Official Home Roulette v. Final Round RESULTS!
Post by: home on September 05, 2016, 10:15:45 AM
  Welcome to my first roulette! I really look forward to discovering new music and broadening my tastes. I hope you guys have fun too! :D

I am looking for 10 participants, first come first served. I’ve reserved spots for Sacul, Train of Naught and Parama, since I participated in their roulette. If any of you want to join let me know, if not the spots are open for other participants. I’ll try to do at least one round a week, listening to songs during the week and doing write-ups in the weekend. Songs will be rated out of 10 points. Sending links by Spotify is preferred, but YouTube or files or whatever is fine too. You can send live versions of songs.

List of Participants:
1 Sacul
2 Train of Naught
3 Parama
4 Evermind
5 Elite
6 Twosuitsluke
7 Luoto
8 Tyrias
9 Scorpion
10 Tomislav95

Structure

First seven rounds are normal rounds with bonus system (see somewhere below) max length 8 minutes (won't take it too strict, a little longer is fine)

----top 6 players remain---
 
Eight Round you can (but don’t have to) send me a longer song, up to 20 minutes, I will also accept multiple songs from the same artist if they flow into each other as long as the total length is no more than 20 minutes
Will be scored out of 20 points

----top 3 players remain---

EP round: Minimum length 25 minutes, maximum length 35 minutes. You have to put in songs from at least three different artists and can put in max two songs per artist. The score will be the average of the songs (which are each scored out of 10 points) times three, plus the flow (which will be scored out of 5). The maximum amount of points you can get in this round is thus 35.



Bonus Point System (Totally not stolen from Train of Naught)
You can pick one of the themes below for a submission for anyone of the rounds (max one theme per round obviously) for one bonus point. You can get a maximum of three bonus points during the roulette. You do not have to use the bonus points though! For each of the themes I listed a few songs that I really like which fit the theme.


-Piano
I just love the piano and am always looking forward to discovering more songs with a prominent part played by this beautiful instrument.

Beethoven - Moonlight Sonata: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsOUcikyGRk (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsOUcikyGRk)
Ludovico Einaudi – Divenire: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qvglWAHDak
 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qvglWAHDak)
-D0es 1t Dj0nt?
Title speaks for itself I think, songs with just some Djenty moments count and are probably a safer bet.

David Maxim Mimic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psDZdQKgzoE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psDZdQKgzoE)
Tesseract: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=get0cXOsSXg (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=get0cXOsSXg)

-Rap/Hip-Hop
This is a genre I thought I’d never like but “To Pimp a Butterfly” by Kendrick Lamar proved me completely wrong. I do find it hard to write down why I like this album so much better than other rap songs I’ve heard. Sending for this bonus point is just pretty much a gamble I guess.
 
Kendrick Lamar – Alright https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-48u_uWMHY&list=RDZ-48u_uWMHY (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-48u_uWMHY&list=RDZ-48u_uWMHY)

-Short Songs
I really love quirky short songs! Anything under 2:25 2:55 counts. This again is probably slightly risky since if I don’t like a part of the song there isn’t much that can make up for it.

Syd Barrett – The Effervescing Elephant https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smVYvn (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smVYvn)
Vulfpeck - Funky Duck https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhNfddJRulQ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhNfddJRulQ)

-Samples/Spoken Word
Anything with samples of speeches/film quotes or similar or with spoken word singing can go for this theme.

Dream Theater- Space Dye Vest
La Dispute - HUDSONVILLE MI 1956: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Jkmocw0DLU (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Jkmocw0DLU)


-Trip! Trip to a dream dragon!
Anything that musically replicates the psychedelic state goes. Please use your own judgement for this.

Pink Floyd – Astronomy Domine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJh9OLlXenM (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJh9OLlXenM)
The Beatles – I Am The Walrus

My tastes:
There are few things I flat out dislike (Hardstyle perhaps) and like discovering music out of my comfort zone. The bands on my banned list probably give some idea of my tastes, I’ve made some of my favourites bold. I generally really love a variety of metal, I prefer harsh vocals more as a way to put power on a certain part than as vocals for a whole song, but there are some exceptions I really love Opeth for example. Grooviness is something I really like in metal too, music like Karnivool which just wants to make you move is great. I also love prog obviously, though I am less into very technical music than I was. I am a huge fan of bands like Porcupine Tree and The Dear Hunter that are very proggy without spewing out notes like crazy. Lately I am also really loving post-rock, it’s just perfect music to listen to while studying/doing homework etc. ( I doubt this was very helpful sorry ;p)

Hell yeah I'm in this.

I have more stuff for this roulette than I do for any of the current ones combined so I'm pumped to trim it down to like 30 bands before this starts (not). Gimme dat reserved #2 spot

Fuck, my short song is 10 seconds too long :lol

I hope I can make it to the 20 minute round, got a pretty good 2/3 song-run in mind I can never send because I never make it to a single EP round.

Post by: Luoto on September 05, 2016, 10:45:57 AM
Wait, I'm actually not gonna miss a roulette sign-up? I'm in.

By the way, you forgot to bold up your favourite bands on the banned list ;)

You're all in :azn:

Whoops, now they are all bolded up


Fuck, my short song is 10 seconds too long :lol
If no one sends songs this short I might make the lenght a bit more lenient, we will see :azn:
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v.Come and join in the fun! :D
Post by: Luoto on September 05, 2016, 11:05:48 AM
Is that 8 minute limit a hard cap, or can it go a little over? I have some song ideas that flirt with the limit that way, but don't have much substance past the mark.

Bit of a challenging time limit actually... I'll be almost surprised if anyone will send Ne Obliviscaris in the first 7 rounds :biggrin:

Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v.Come and join in the fun! :D
Post by: Train of Naught on September 05, 2016, 11:12:21 AM
I made a draft for a playlist and 2 songs exceed the time limit, one of which is easily replacable by another song of that band, but the other isn't and it's 8:01 in length :lol I hope that's overseeable

Also don't worry about the 2:35 song I can already meet 3 of the other themes and there's plenty of good sub 2:25 songs out there
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v.Come and join in the fun! :D
Post by: Evermind on September 05, 2016, 11:12:55 AM
Can we send Round 1 already? I've got a perfect song to send while I was looking through my choices for Parama's EP.
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v.Come and join in the fun! :D

wait 8 minute time limit? that's kind of killer strict but i'll try  :lol
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v.Come and join in the fun! :D
Post by: home on September 05, 2016, 11:44:16 AM
I won't take the 8 minutes too strict, it's not a problem if it is a little longer, just be reasonable.

Can we send Round 1 already? I've got a perfect song to send while I was looking through my choices for Parama's EP.
Of course, go ahead and send it!

May jump on the piano bonus point bandwagon.

In related matters, what is your view on video game music?

Also, punk rock? I've got lots of cool punk rock songs under 2:25 that could steal that bonus  :biggrin:

I don't listen to video game music a lot, but I love the ones I do listen to sometimes, like the Morrowind theme. I guess I do love it partly just because of the memories of playing the game. But feel free to send video game music! I will reject it if it's from a game I've played though. (I don't game a lot so chances I know whatever you'll send are slim)

As for Punk Rock, I think it's usually great music live but as for listening, I usually don't strongly dislike it nor like it, it's just okay music for me. Chances of getting a 6 are pretty high, but hey perhaps you can prove me wrong :azn:

i actually have no clue what to send

can't wait for the EP round

 :lol I'll still listen to it  :tup

Yeah me too. I really liked Lunacy and was eager to try out the full album but it's just impossible. But then again, I strongly disliked everything I heard by NMH so I guess I'm not ready for anything

Are you doing hangmanen once all the songs are in btw?

Also how does the psychedelic bonus point work? My psychedelic song doesn't sound anything like either of the examples but out of my personal experiences with psychedelica it fits the theme perfectly. :corn

I won't do hangmanen for this round, too much stuff to do already, but I'll try to do it for next round.

And that should be fine :azn:


Already got eigth of the songs!

Ok. NMH is band which really broaden my tastes, if you're ready for it, you're ready for anything :lol

Nah I am definitely not ready for Swans, I have never gotten through The Seer completely  :lol
LUNACY! LUNACY! LUNACY! LUNACY!

I'm going to see Swans live in about a month. I find the band really intriguing, although I find them very difficult to listen to on recordings. I wonder what kind of experience it'll be to see them live.

Of course, what pushed me over the edge was the opening act :heart

You could do a "semi-hangman" in that you pre-enter some letters, and then only take guesses for artists and song titles.

It's very hard to listen to any 2CD Swans album in a sitting. Glowing Man is great, but not anywhere as close as The Seer in terms of quality. Still better than To Be Kind tho.

Twosuitsluke, youtube is fine. I listened to the song and I can say that the soundquality does not take away from my enjoyment of the song (The piano does sound very digital/electric but that's how it's supposed to sound right?)

You could do a "semi-hangman" in that you pre-enter some letters, and then only take guesses for artists and song titles.

Might as well do normal hangmanen then, still need one more song though

Oh shit waddup?


This kind of music is perfect for chilling after a busy day

I really love the first part, but my mind starts to wander of near the end

It’s certainly a very enjoyable song but doesn’t stand out too much

This is just pure beauty, wow!

I even really love the digital piano, it just works great in this song and really adds to the atmosphere.

The different section do feel a little disjointed

I really dig the noice

I think I would like this a lot more with a more organic sound.

This reminds me a lot of -insert song- which is not a bad thing at all

While I don’t particularly like this song, I am definitely going to check more stuff from this band



Reading through the tidbits, I hope they don't sound too negative, it's a pretty good round I think :azn: (though I can't really compare it yet)


This is your way of telling me I came dead last with 6/10 right?!  :lol

Results! still more than half an hour left in today here ;p

Twosuitsluike: Earthbound Papas - Octave Theory ~ The Forest of a Thousand Years 6,75 + 1  (Piano)

This song starts quite simple with some nice but too special melodies. The thing I do really love in this song is that part at 5:07. It just makes me smile every time and probably increased my rating for this song by at least half a point, I love humour in a song like this. I  am not a big fan of the digital piano sound, sometimes it works great (like in Scorpion’s song) but I think I would like this a lot more with a more organic sound. Perhaps I am too picky because of playing piano for almost 10 years though. Also I do guess they were perhaps going for that vintage videogame sound? I’ve probably just not played enough games to really appreciate that…  I really hope I don’t sound too negative it’s not a bad song by any means. Overall it’s a pretty piece that’s just not too memorable for me


Luoto: Amendfoil – Amoebas 7.25

This song has a nice modern, almost progressive, metal sound. The first minutes of song don’t really grab me, but I do really like this song from three minutes on. The atmosphere is slightly darker and the heavier part at the end has a nice rhythm. I do find it really hard to say much more about this song, there’s isn’t anything I dislike but also nothing I really love either. Overall it’s certainly a very enjoyable song but it doesn’t stand out too much
 

Train of Naught: Closure in Moscow – The Church of the Technochrist 7,5

Going for that disco bonus ey? Well I can say this song grew quite a lot on me, at first I quite liked this up until the disco part. I do like the song a lot better now but that part after 1 minute is just too damn cheesy ;D, I mean it isn’t even good disco! It also reminds me a lot of a certain song I can’t remember the name. of but don’t really like. I do love the singers voice however, and can definitely see why you compared this band to The Mars Volta. The part from 4 minutes on with the weird voices in the background is pretty good. While I don’t particularly like this song, I am definitely going to check out more songs from this band. I am at least quite intrigued by this song, it’s pretty solid besides the disco, not all of their songs have these cheesy disco vibes right?


Elite: Girl Band - Paul   7,5

This is probably the most unique song in this round, I don’t know anything that sounds similar.(but I don’t really know any Indie rock besides Neutral Milk Hotel) The singer is almost speaking instead of singing, reminding me a little of the spoken word style of La Dispute’s singer. It works great in this song though. The song is getting very noisy sometimes, but at some parts I really dig the noise. This song is making me feel a little tense, perhaps just because all the soft piano songs in this round, putting me in this relaxed mood. I don’t think I can listen to a whole album in this style, but this was a pretty interesting listen, thanks!


Tomislav95: Chroma Key – On the page    7.75 +1 (Spoken Word)
The piano sound, the samples, this reminds me a lot of Space Dye Vest (no coincidence of course since Kevin Moore composed both songs) which is not a bad thing at all since I love Space Dye Vest. However because of the similarities I can not not compare it to Space Dye Vest, and although it guess in some ways it’s a little better composition wise, it just doesn’t have the same emotional value of Space Dye Vest (no doubt partly because I know Space Dye Vest for a long time and it is tight to some memories) It’s still a very good song, and I am going to check out some more Chroma Key songs!


Tyrias:
Agnes Obel – Dorian         7.75 +1 (Piano)

I like how this song starts with someone subtly knocking the rhythm. The piano playing is pretty basic through the whole song but it does work, mainly just playing three chords over and over in slightly different ways. The timing of when the chords change is slightly unpredictable but nothing too ground-breaking. I do love the singer’s voice though, she makes me feel really peaceful and I keep wanting to sing the chorus along. The whole song has this peaceful, slightly melancholic,  atmosphere which makes this kind of music is perfect for chilling after a busy day, you know when you don’t want too much at your head. I am definitely going to save this song for moments like that and am going to check the album sometime.


Sacul: Nils Frahm - More 8,25 +1  (Piano)

First of all the sound of the song is gorgeous, it feels very fragile and personal. The piano combines beautifully with the percussive sound. Thanks for sending me that little bit of text explaining! The first part of the song is very repetitive which would probably bore me normally but I’m somehow not bothered by it at all in this song. The whole first part just feels so beautiful! I do feel that the different sections feel a little disjointed, more like this are three separate songs or perhaps one beautiful song broken up by a middle section that’s just not as unique as the two amazing sections around it.


Parama: Ólafur Arnalds - Sudden Throw/Brim    8.5 +1 (Piano)

This starts with some very subtle piano playing and strings almost floating around it in a very beautiful way. I love how Sudden Throw just keeps getting more and more intense for four minutes long and then climaxes into the quite simple intro of Brim. I also love how Brim then builds up with the addition of electronic drums to create quite a unique sound. My original response was : “I really love the first part, but my mind starts to wander of near the end” . I do kind of agree less with this now than I did a few days ago, but I still feel that the main theme in Brim goes on slightly too long without adding too much. The quiet part near at the end is a really beautiful way to end this song though. I am really looking forward to checking out more songs from this artist!


Scorpion: Susanne Sundfør - The Brothel  8,5 +1 (Piano)

I dig the sinister intro, it directly sets the mood for the rest of the song. The singer’s voice fits the music perfectly and carries a lot of emotion. The vocal harmonies in the chorus part are great and with the addition of the strings they form a really intense sound. I even really love the digital piano, it just works great in this song and really adds to the atmosphere. This song is in some ways quite similar to the song Tyrias sent, as they have both relatively simple piano with a woman singing beautifully over it. I like this song slightly more, it feels a little more unique and also it hits my feelings a lot more.


Evermind
: Iamthemorning – Lighthouse   9.25 +1 (Piano)

This is just pure beauty, wow! This song immediately grabbed me from the first few notes. The piano sound is just gorgeous and played with a lot of skill and dynamics. The person playing it also knows exactly when not too play too much and keep quiet, something Jordan Rudess should learn to do ;p I love the singing too, she has a great voice and the melodies are beautiful. I really love how they mix with Mariusz Duda’s vocals after four minutes. Seriously no complaints about this song it’s pretty perfect, easily the best song from this round. I don’t dare to score it higher than a 9.25 yet since I don’t know what’s coming in the next rounds but wow, this hit me hard! Thanks Evermind!


Final thoughts:
So many songs in this round which are just plain beautiful! In the end six people decided to go for the piano bonus which is great since I love the piano. I guess it’s probably the easiest bonus point to find a song for. I really enjoyed listening to this round, and can’t wait to listen to the next rounds!

That coulda shoulda gone a bit better, but I'm glad you decided to check them out anyway, Pink Lemonade (the album) is really good, and yeah there's barely anything remotely disco on it.

I kinda feel bad that I should be in last as I had the lowest score. Well actually I don't feel that bad.

There seems to be some really cool stuff sent in this round. I always plan to check out songs other people send in roulettes. I really will try this time.

I completely agree with what you said Home, I kinda wish I'd thought a bit more about what I was going to send but nevermind.

In semi-related matters, have you ever heard Children of Bodom's cover of 'Oops I Did it Again' by Britney Spears? That is the shit!! Back in the day, when I did a bit of DJ'ing at local metal nights, I used to play it at some point. It is so much fun  :lol

Not sorry you're in 9th place Train as you are likely to overtake me soon anyway. The song I'm planning to send is either a perfect song that everyone should love or a song I am blinded by love for.

PelleK also has anime covers album with Raon Lee (such a cute girl :blush ) on Spotify, great stuff. I'm not the biggest fan of anime but songs are pretty good. I'm also subscribed to his channel on Youtube, he make new video every few days.

I have. I believe it was even the most popular CoB song at the time :lol like it was actually really popular. I never liked it though, not sure why but it was just offputting to me at the time to hear pop being mixed into metal. Nowadays I bet I'd appreciate it more.

Really??? I never remember it being popular at all?? Not in the UK anyway. Did you hear it when it was originally released, as like a b-side or a bonus track, or when it was on the covers compilation (Skeletons in Your Closet)?

Wow I completely canceled this one out for some reason. Spoken word automatically makes me think of the samples because most of the time they're sampled. But Odyssey to the West is just perfect for this round.

At least more people get to know this masterpiece of an album, might just be my #1 AOTY at this point, it's so fucking good.

This round is a lot more varied than round 1, there also isn't an obvious best song, but rather three or perhaps four strong contenders for the best song of this round. (though one of them is creeping me out a little  :laugh: )

Yeah I will likely be going for piano (this round), hip-hop and dj0nt.

I thought of sending Thank You Scientist's Prologue of the new album for the short song bonus because I think it's an awesome song on its own still, but it just feels bad to send a 2 minute song in a roulette when you're trying to fully represent the artist you are sending. The host misses out bigtime.

Anyway not even sure if my djent song is actually considered djent so I may need to look for something else. I honestly still don't know what defines djent apart from constant palm-muting :corn

I don't have time to finish the write-ups today, so here are some tidbits  :o




I don’t think I’ve ever heard something that sounds similar to this, man you might have opened me up to a whole new genre.

It’s got some really nice happy vibes that just don’t do a lot for me

The high melody there is quite beautiful and complements the vocals, which lack an interesting melody, really well. 

This sounds really fresh compared to a lot of other bands in the genre

This has some pretty chill vibes

I have listened to some songs of this band before, but have never properly checked them out. Well this song convinced me to finally do so!

Some really nice grooves throughout the song

The repetitive vocal lines actually work really well

I just love the emotion in his voice when he’s not singing

It’s almost a little… cheesy?

I don't know your band and song, but I'm 90% sure that this is The Lantern, fucking Parama. Though this album is one of a kind home, you're not going to find other albums like this one unfortunately.

The opener is actually the song I had planned, for mike's roulette aswell but with his I cheated by making a file that had the first song + the first few seconds of the second song and let it fade out as Garret exhales just before the blastbeats come in. :lol I liked the edited version better than The Razor's Edge as a standalone song but it still feels weird out of context.

It’s got some really nice happy vibes that just don’t do a lot for me

Round 2 results!  :hat

Evermind: Jon Lord - Pictured Within   6.25

It’s a very pretty song but it just doesn’t seem to really reach me. The middle section with strings is quite beautiful but I can’t get into the rest. I feel like I should like this song a lot more, I mean it’s a big name and all but I am sorry to say I find this song rather boring. It’s almost a little… cheesy? Perhaps it was more original when it was released, idk. Looking forward to what you’ll send though, after this round Lighthouse is still my favourite song of the roulette!

Twosuitsluike: Rx Bandits - Meow! Meow! Space Tiger: 7.25
It’s a pretty radio friendly poppy song. Nothing to dislike but again not too much about it to love either. I do really like the part starting at about 1:00, shame it’s so short. On the whole It’s got some really nice happy vibes that just don’t do a lot for me. I do enjoy this song a lot more than the song you send in the previous round! I hope the next song will be even better  :tup

Tyrias  Oh Hiroshima - Holding Rivers         7.5 +1 (Psychedelic)
This has a very nice floaty atmosphere for most of the song. The middle sections is a little too drawn out I think though, although the violin adds really nice touch.. I am usually not a big fan of ‘normal’ singing in post-rock but the repetitive vocal lines here actually work really well! They are not too distracting which is great for this kind of music as I can still really enjoy it while doing for example homework. All in all It’s a pretty competently written post-rock song but I do feel that it lacks something to make it stand out from the countless other post-rock bands.

Train of Naught: The Reign of Kindo - Let it go       7.5   +1       (Piano)

I felt I quite indifferent to this song at first but this song also grew quite a lot on me. This has some pretty chill vibes. The singing has got a very pleasant voice, I really love his singing,  especially in the part starting from 2:50. There is also some really nice piano in the background. My only “complaint” is that it, despite being over 5 minutes long, it never really strays from it’s safe/jazz-poppy sound. The trumpet near the end is great though. I liked this song a bit better than the previous song you sent and look forward to the next song!

Elite : Obsidian Kingdom - Away / Absent   7.75      
I remember listening to Mantiis a long time ago but I couldn’t get through it I think. (don’t remember much of it) This is a lot better than what I do remember though. The drumming although for the first part of the song, quite simple and repetitive works really well. Some really nice grooves throughout the song. I feel that some of the softer sections lack a little substance sometimes. I just love the more intense sections however, they me a little of Karnivool which is a great thing. I’ll give this album a chanse sometime!

Tomislav95: Woods of Ypres – I was buried in mount pleasant cemetery 8 +1      (Piano)
This starts with a really nice piano intro which does a great job of setting the atmosphere. The heavy part following it has slightly monotonous but quite catchy vocals. I like how the heaviness goes together with the piano here. I really love the part from three and a half minute on. The high melody there is really nice and complements the vocals, which lack an interesting melody, really well. I am not a big fan of the guttural vocals near the end though they do fit I guess. All in all a pretty solid song!

Luoto: Pressure Points - Electric Shadows       8   +1  (Piano)
The growls at the start are indeed quite intelligible and are pretty great \m/ At start this song has a very Opeth like feel but quickly strays into territory Opeth wouldn’t stray into. I really love the vocal melodies from the clean part after it. I get some Pain of Salvation vibes from that “she isn’t crying, not yet part”  The piano break is pretty nice aswel. Nothing to complain about this on, it’s a pretty solid prog-metal song that sounds really fresh compared to a lot of other bands in the genre.

Scorpion; Riverside - The Depth of Self-Delusion   8

I’ve heard some songs of this band before (not this song though) but have never really checked them out. Well, this song convinced me to finally check out this band! I love the singers voice there is something about it that really touches me. The intense part with some kind of effect over the vocals is pretty great and reminds me a little of Porcupine Tree, the whole song does a little actually. They have that same emotional, proggy but not too technical feel. Still based on this song Riverside does have a unique sound, this is a solid song!

Parama: Slice the Cake - The Lantern          8.25   (Spoken Word)
The acoustic guitar part at the start of the song is pretty good. The best thing about this song is the singer though, I just love the emotion in his voice when he’s not singing. I like how his voice is just getting more rougher and intenser  ending in a harsh vocal/blast beat section I wouldn’t really like normally but with this build up it’s just a perfect release of energy. Then follows again a really nice acoustic guitar part followed by again a pretty good intense part ending a little suddenly but that’s undoubtly because it’s supposed to be followed by part 2.

Sacul  Saltillo - A Hair on the Head of John the Baptist   8.75   (Spoken Word)

This song creeped me out slighly on my first listen but grew on me a lot and actually turned out to be my favourite song of this round. The atmosphere throughout the song is just so great.  I love the use of samples (though slightly pretentious), The classicalis violin part with electronic drums at the 2 minute mark is quite beautiful. I love how this song almost dies down completely near the end and then comes back once more. It’s not a revolutionary thing to do, but there’s something about how it’s done in this song that’s just really good . I don’t think I’ve ever heard something that sounds similar to this, man you might have opened me up to a whole new genre. Thanks Sacul!


So by round 2 9 of you already used the piano bonus :p The scores have been shuffled quite a bit with Evermind taking a huge drop, Sacul climbing to the top and rising from 10 to 6. I really liked the variation in this round, I can’t wait to hear the songs for next round! Please send before monday so I can start listening next week.

Great that you liked Riverside! Checking them out is definitely recommended, though I wouldn't recommend starting with SONGS (which is the album The Depth of Self-Delusion is on) - I'd say good starting points are either the debut, Second Life Syndrome or ADHD.

Also, sent Lady Gaga - Perfect Illusion.

Hey hey, there have been only two rounds, everyone still got quite a good chance  :azn:

Well, on the bright side being quite far behing means I have nothing too lose and can send stuff I normally wouldn't cause there's not that much to lose.

In a slightly related note, what's your opinion on electronic dance music?
You are in fifth place and have only used one bonus (the top two used two alreade) that's a pretty good spot right?  :laugh: I am really not a fan of electronic dance music usually, I can't think of any dance song I like sorry

Great that you liked Riverside! Checking them out is definitely recommended, though I wouldn't recommend starting with SONGS (which is the album The Depth of Self-Delusion is on) - I'd say good starting points are either the debut, Second Life Syndrome or ADHD.
Thanks I'll make sure to listen to one of those three first  :tup

Yep, I'm not ashamed.

Love it, hoping to get a good score to lift me then maybe start some risk taking again.

@Parama, I think it's a pretty good introduction to the band personally. I've got so many songs I could potentially send by this band it's unreal. I've seen people send Domino the Destitute in roulettes before and it breaks my heart. I think that is a terrible choice of song and I wouldn't rate it in my top 30. I think with most bands though my favourite songs differ from the majority.

They are a top 3 band for me though so everything is near enough gold imo.

Time for tidbits! I might do results this evening, if not at latest on tuesday. There's one song this round that's in my top 3 of this roulette so far, all the other songs this round have at least a 7.

Wow! The ending of this song really blew my mind

All the band members are clearly very competetent, singers got a great voice too.

Do you like cheese, Evermind?

There’s something about the vocals in the beginning of the song that really puts me of.

I just really don’t know what else to say about it, it’s all pretty good

I love the atmospheres and textures in this song

it all goes together so surprisingly well

The ending kind of this song kinda creeped me out at first

my mind keeps wandering of during the first part

The outro is probably my favourite part about this song




Also kind of forgot about the Hangmanen, there's still one song to guess ::)

3. no but scorpion and evermind do

Well, obviously none of the ones about vocals, since my song is an instrumental.
Other then that, I think the 2 above are the most likely, and I'm hoping it's the second.

Okay, so. Tomislav sent dredg, and Parama was annoyed the somebody else sent TYS, so his song is the Lindsey Stirling one maybe?

Also, either the first or the last tidbit is definitely mine.
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v. R3 Hangmanen and Tidbits!
Post by: Train of Naught on October 02, 2016, 08:29:56 AM
Pretty sure most Lindsey Stirling songs are instrumental though and electronic music + violin really seems like Tyrias music (yes this is a thing now)

So Parama is shitting us and actually did send TYS himself. Or Tomislav sent TYS and Parama sent dredg. Really anyone could have sent TYS. Home why do you not know TYS?

Post by: home on October 04, 2016, 03:16:21 PM
Here they come! shaking in their boots, they’ll be skipping stones with your bones, when these ants know,

Evermind: Primal Fear - When Death Comes Knocking    7


The intro is pretty nice, the song kind of loses me when the vocals join in though. The chorus is nice and catchy. Rest of the song.. it’s all okay, I like it, but it’s just not too special for me. The middle part is the only part that really stand out I think even though the solo is a little generic. Overall it’s a pretty standard metals song, almost a little cheesy again. Do you like cheese Evermind? (okay, of course you do)


Luoto: Amorphis - My Kantele (Magic and Mayhem)   7


The intro is pretty great, but I don’t dig the harsh vocals at all here. The section starting at 1:40 is way more enjoyable, the clean vocals are nicer and the synth lead is pretty good. The harsh vocals after this aren’t too good again and the instruments don’t make up for this either. I do really enjoy the last minute, the outro is probably my favourite part about this song.


Twosuitsluke:  Coheed and Cambria - The Willing Well II: Apollo II: The Telling Truth   7.5


The intro is pretty interesting but there’s something about the vocals in the beginning of the song that really puts me of. I do quite like the singers voice in some of the higher parts later though. Instrumentally and composition wise I think this is a really good song. There are quite a lot of very distinct parts but it steels feels as a whole song. It’s a shame that some of the vocal parts prevent me from fully enjoying this. I do love how this song ends though.

Sacul: Ulver - Glammer Hammer (psychedelic)         7.5

Although the atmosphere is great, my mind keeps wandering of during the first part. I do like how it transits into the second part which I like a lot more, though. There’s quite a lot going on there working together to create something that’s really intense. I keep hearing more things near the end of the song , it’s just layered in a really good way. it’s a shame I can’t  keep my attention on the song during the first half ‘cause the second half deserves a better score.


Tyrias: Lindsey Stirling - The Arena            8.25

The violin in this song is just amazing, wow. She clearly is a very talented and a virtuoso player, I love how many different sounds she gets out of the violin. The melodies during the whole song are fantastic. The electronic drums work really great here and build up nicely during the first minute. I’m normally not a big fan of this kind of electronic music in the chorusy section, but it all goes together so surprisingly well! with the electronic sound. I checked out the video btw, it fits the music great. I think I listened to one of her songs a year or so ago, this is so much better than what I remember!


Parama: Thank you Scientist - A Wolf In Cheap Clothing      8.25

The brass in the intro (during the whole song actually) is great. I like how this starts pretty intimately and then goes into a part which reminds a little of Rishloo at 1:30, but with brass. All the band members are clearly very competent, singers got a great voice too. I do feel some parts are not too memorable/chaotic, but that’s perhaps just because I don’t completely grasp this song yet, it’s got quite a lot of different parts and variations in less than 7 minutes. Which is a great thing in this case btw. This is a band I am really looking forward to listening to some more, based on this song they have a pretty unique sound.


Elite: Jolly - When Everything's Perfect   8.25

The keyboards at the intro are pretty nice. I like how they keep playing subtly during the heavier parts. The chorus is quite catchy actually, the nonsense  vocals after it are quite cool too.  The middle section is pretty intense too. The ending kind of creeped me out at first, they first create this innocent feel with the children’s voices, creating this huge contrast with the ugly intense section that follows it. It works great and while it isn’t pleasant to listen to it is quite enjoyable if that makes sense. I also listened to Firewell btw, which also pretty good but I enjoyed this song more so good choice!


Train of Naught: Dreadnought – De Lune   (Psychedelic)      8.25+1

The atmosphere in the first part is absolutely beautiful, the flute makes it sound really organic and the singer has a very soothing voice, creating a very “magical” sound. They kind of break out of that atmosphere at around 3 minutes but quickly go back to it. The flute solo is pretty good as is the heavy section that follows. The synthesizer part starting after is the only thing I’m not too big a fan of in this song, it has an almost cheap sound and the melodies are a little simple perhaps. The rest of the song is just really good I just love the atmospheres and textures in this song.


Tomislav: Dredg – Ode To The Sun            8.5

I like the intro, the distant vocals right at the start are pretty nice touch. The guitar work isn’t even too special but it’s just very solid and quite groovy sometimes. The vocals are really good, I really like how the vocalist suddenly switches between a very intense and a very sensitive voice. Like with the This is all for you.. Transcend part. Sorry for the short write-up.  I just really don’t know what else to say about it, it’s all pretty good ;)

Scorpion: Diablo Swing Orchestra - Justice for Saint Mary   9

This starts of really nice with acoustic guitar and strings. Some absolutely beautiful vocal melodies too! The way it builds up is really nice, I like the intense strings at 2 and a half minute followed  by some beautiful melodies again and then the brass joins in really nicely. It gets really intense at 6 minutes going into a metal section and then… Wow! The ending of this song really blows my mind. At the end of the metal section when the sound goes a little flat I first though my headphone jack wasn’t plugged in properly, and then that dub-steb section kicked in while I was fiddling the headphone jack. That was so unexpected and so damn good. Easily the best song from this round, thanks Scorpion!



All in all a pretty good round! Justice for Saint Mary is easily the best song this round but five other songs scored higher than an 8 too. Please send within the next two days. Don’t forget to use the bonus points, it is probably a good idea to use all three before the cutting point after round 7. I will updated the “banned during roulette” list tomorrow if I can find time, every band scoring a 7 or higher is banned btw.



Score:
10 Twosuitsluike:      15 + 7.5 = 22.5  X
9 Luoto:           16.25 + 7 = 23.25 X
8 Evermind               16.5 + 7 = 23.5 X
7 Elite:                15.25 + 8.25 = 23.5
6 Train of Naught      16 + 9.25 = 25.25 XX
5 Tyrias             17.25 + 8.25 = 25. 5 XX
4 Tomislav95:        17.75 + 8.5 = 26.25 XX
3 Scorpion:            17.5 + 9 = 26.5  X

Okay, I'm sending something that isn't djent in my definition—because I like it so much—but could be djent in home's definition. If this scores low, I've picked some hilarious songs to send him in the last three rounds.

"4 minuten geleden" I love this song!

Anyway I think it's a cool idea but I can already spot a handful of bands and songs by giving it a good look. I won't spoil them all in case others want to try it out though.

So I'll just do one I got in my first roulette as well: Amplifier - Airborne (Tyrias)
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v. R4 Guessing/Spotting Game

That's what I thought, but then there is also Infected Mushroom in there so I'm not sure which one is Sacul's.

Let's see if someone figures out how creepy this round is now :lol
Well yeah it's a pretty fucking creepy song, do you know it?

Did Parama send the Being track with Spencer Sotelo (Air Atlantic)? Why not just send the (vastly superior) Periphery

I also realised I lost a potential submission for the epic/multi-song round.
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v. R4 Guessing/Spotting Game
Post by: Cyril on October 08, 2016, 10:12:42 AM
Gazpacho - Chequered Light Buildings is Sacul.

Some of the song names I can see:
Singular
Evolve or Perish
Airborne
Seven Stars

Some bands names I can see:
Nordic Giants
Amplifier
Beyond the Bridge
Ivar Bjornson & Einar Selvik

oddly, i cannot tell in the slightest what the Beyond the Bridge song is
wait no it's Doorway to Salvation, alright

Fates Warning - Seven Stars is one
Nordic Giants - Evolve or Perish

I think the numbers on the right are the song lengths? but it looks wrong for mine  :lol

Post by: home on October 08, 2016, 10:21:42 AM
Okay I should have spent a little more time on the picture perhaps, ah well.


Guessed so far:

Sacul: Gazpacho - Checkered Light Buildings

Parama: Being(feat Spencer Sotelo) - Air Atlantic

Tyrias: Amplifier - Airborne

 ???: Ivar Bjornson & Einar Selvik - Skuggsjá

 ???: Beyond The Bridge - Doorway to Salvation

 ???: Infected Mushroom - ??

 ???: Enslaved - Singular

 ???: Nordic Giants - Evolve or Perish

 ???: Fates Warning - Seven Stars

 ???: Drewsif Stalin's Musical Endeavours - Mirage

Whenever I wanted to be creative and do something new I realized "nah this is bad, hangmanen is superior in every way". Atleast something good has come out of it, the art which I assume you made on the spot looks fucking cool and spacey.

Anyway, Nordic Giant is Elite (thanks spotify), that Stalin band might be luke's, heard a couple of their songs and they might just be crazy enough to be in his catalogue. Scorpion FW, Beyond the Bridge Evermind, Enslaved Luoto and that leaves Infected Mushroom, and something tells me I fucked up because no way Tomislav sent that.

Switch around tomi and scorp /edit

Oh and I have no idea who sent Ivar & Einar, of course

Tyrias: Amplifier – Airborne
Evermind: Beyond the Bridge - Doorway to Salvation
Tomislav: Fates Warning - Seven Stars
Parama: Being - Air Atlantic               
Luoto: Enslaved – Singular

So I hope to do results before the weekend, otherwise it'll be tuesday since I am away for most of the weekend and have some deadlines monday evening. I won't promise since I've also got a midterm tomorrow but I'll probably have them up tomorrow evening :azn:

Round 4 Results!  :omg: :omg: :omg:

Evermind: Beyond the Bridge - Doorway to Salvation 7.5

A lot of energy at the start of the song, I’m not too big a fan of the sound there, it feels a little too compressed or pushing. The female vocals are really great though! They form a really nice contrast with the intro. I like how it builds up with the male vocals adding some extra power. The chorus is nice, I really like how it varies a little each time. It’s a very competently written prog metal song, but I feel kind of burned out with this kind of classic DT like prog metal music.

Luoto: Enslaved – Singular   7.5+1               Psychedelic
I really can’t get into the goblin-esque harsh vocals, like at the start of the song (the cleans here are really nice) but instrumentally this song is pretty solid. A lot of energy and enough variation to keep it interesting. The harsh vocals get more enjoyable when they are a little bit further away in the mix instead of being the focus point though, like from 2:40 – 2:55, I quite dig them there actually. The slow mid-section is pretty epic, the spoken word part works really well, a very nice dark atmosphere here. Again, the harsh vocals will prevent me from listening to this more often, but it was still an interesting song to listen to. Kind of odd choice for the psychedelic bonus point, tbh  :lol

Tomislav: Fates Warning - Seven Stars   7.5
Liked the intro, some nice vocal melodies near the start too.The chorus is pretty nice and very catchy. This song reminds me quite a bit of Dream Theater. Which is a good thing I guess but same comment as with  a very Evermind song, it’s a very competently written “classic prog metal” song, but I feel kind of burned out with this kind of music lately. Still really liked this song! It’s just not unique enough for me to check out their album.  The heavy ending is good though.

Parama: Being (feat Spencer Sotelo)- Air Atlantic   7.75+1            Djent
I like the soft intro, there’s something about how that djenty riff comes in that makes me smirk though. The low guitar works great with the high melody . I really like the vocalist, the whispery words at the end of some sentences are pretty rad. There’s a nice atmospheric middle section. I Like the rhythm near the end, that tremolo like effect on the vocals at the end is pretty nice, fade out ending is a bit a of a bummer though.

Twosuitsluke: DSME – Mirage 8+1 Djent

some really nice rhythms. I wasn’t too fond of the harsh vocals at first but they grew quite a bit on me. I can’t say I love them but they fit the song. The high sound in the background is pretty nice, directly makes the song a lot creepier :p. The female vocals are really nice and work surprisingly great
The Miraage part (chorus I think) is great, love how the song goes crazy there. The samples at the end are really good, they have a really nice impact after the heavy part, it’s a really nice way too end this song.

Scorpion: Infected Mushroom – Heavyweight    8.25+1      Psychedelic

The start of this song is amazing, a very nice kinda dark atmosphere. I Love the weird electronic drums and all those sound going on. The eastern melody is really great and works really well with the heavy sound behind it. Love all the different effects and sounds they are using. Not too sure about that weird electronic sound from about 3 minutes on, reminds me a little of Adebisi Shank though. The guitar (or synth lead?) after it is so good though. Besides a few small electronic bits I really enjoyed this song, a really nice and varied composition!

Elite: Nordic Giants - Evolve or Perish    8.25+1 Spoken Word
I really like the sound at the intro, the notes at the start sound a little predictable though . Love how rich the sound gets near about half a minute. This has to be one of my favourite use of samples in this roulette so far, they work absolutely great with the song. The piano chords at the middle of the song sound so disturbing, which works so well. The way the intense post-rock parts are alternated with the samples is really good, the samples have a nice impact this way.

Tyrias: Amplifier – Airborne 8.25
Nice atmosphere at the start, I like how it suddenly stops and then almost hesitates to start again, but then starts more intensely. I like the lead sound here. The it’s “time to fly”part is really epic! Despite the simple lyrics it’s one of my favourite choruses? in the roulette so far. The heavy part at 6 minutes is pretty great, there something about the timing when it starts that’s almost a little awkward though, like it starts just half a second before you expect it too. I love how intense it gets near at ending.

Sacul: Gazpacho - Chequered Light Buildings 8.5
This starts out so soothing! The singers voice, the minimalistic piano, it touches me. I like how gradually things are added in the background. The part at 1:50 is really nice. It’s get pretty intense at 3 minutes, and then completely does away with the soothing atmosphere, getting a little disturbing with the distant vocals. It forms a really nice contrast with when she singing starts again. The song slowly getting more soothing/pleasant again near the end. Really enjoyed this song, it has a really nice composition and also carries a lot of emotion.

Train of Naught – Ivar Bjørnson & Einar Selvik’s Skuggsjá - Skuggsjá   8.5+1  Spoken Word
I love the flute at the start of the songs, it conjures some really nice images in my head, it’s got this kind of misty battlefield atmosphere or something. I like how the music gradually build up intensity behind the spoken vocals. The way the more screaming vocals join in and then go to singing vocals is pretty great too. After the softer middle part it has the same kind of awesome build up, ending really intense but a little suddenly perhaps. I Loved the atmosphere throughout the song!


Score list:
10 Evermind                  23.5 + 7,5 = 31 X
9 Twosuitsluike:         22.5 + 9 = 31,5 XX
8 Luoto:                 23.25 + 8,5 = 31,75 XX
7 Elite:                      23.5 + 9,25 = 32,75 X
6 Tomislav95:           26.25 + 7,5 = 33,75 XX
5 Tyrias                   25.5 +8,25 = 33,75 XX
4 Train of Naught         25.25 + 9,5 = 34,75 XXX
3 Parama:                  27 + 8,75 = 35,75 XXX
2 Scorpion:               26.5  + 9,25 = 35,75 XX
1 Sacul:                    27.5 + 8,5 = 36 XXX

Overall this was a pretty solid round again, both the highest minimum score and the lowest maximum score in this roulette I think. The total scores are quite close to each other too with only 5 points between the 10th and 1st position (4 points if all bonuses are sent) Perhaps I should be stricter with scores… So far no one has used the “short song” and “Rap/Hip Hop” bonus, probably the other bonuses are easier haha. Please send before next Monday, no haste as I am away most of this weekend so won’t start listening until Sunday evening anyway.

Post by: Cyril on October 14, 2016, 01:32:49 PM
doorway to salvation is pretty good but I like all the tracks that come after it more tbh  :lol
where the earth and sky meet is like the best ballad I've ever heard on a prog metal album tbh
also same as luke, I might send tomorrow but I'll definitely send Sunday if not

Also I have the album which singular is on but I can't recall what it sounds like. Storm of Memories is the song I'd have sent if I wanted a psychedelic bonus point with enslaved but tbh i don't see how they're very psychedelic at all regardless  :lol

Kind of odd choice for the psychedelic bonus point, tbh  :lol

You could tell I had a hard time coming up with a psychedelic track that is not too long for these rounds :lol 7.5 +1 isn't that bad actually, the quality in this roulette is simply high, I guess.

On another note, Fates Warning was one of my options for the possible epic song round, and off the same album even. Seven Stars is decent, but The Light and Shade of Things is amazing.

Post by: home on October 14, 2016, 01:45:28 PM
Ah well I said "please use your own judgement" so it's fine. It's not something I could listen to on a trip I think, but I don't necesserily hoped to get music to listen to while tripping (post rock is just  :angel:) but more something that conjurs that same state of mind. (which is a bit vague anyway).

And yeah, 7,5 means I still really enjoyed the song, quality of the songs sent is indeed just very good in this roulette.
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v. R4 Results! Send for R5!
Post by: Tomislav95 on October 14, 2016, 02:06:21 PM
Seven Stars deserves more :P but ok, I'm not far behind.
I'll try to find something for you right now.
And I think I'll use short song bonus in seventh round if I'm desperately in need of that bonus point.

Hey, I'm no longer in last place so I'm taking that as a win  :biggrin:

I'll try and send in the next 24 hours. Literally have no idea what I'm going to send but I'll probably send something on impulse  :lol
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v. R4 Results! Send for R5!

Post by: Train of Naught on October 14, 2016, 05:13:25 PM
Yay! In hindsight this is probably something I'd more likely send to Sacul or something but I'm glad you liked. :metal

The song reminds me of Swans (without the flute) in a way as well, pretty much because of the sinister atmospheres they build around their songs, pretty similarly to this one. Check them out if you're interested, though I'm not sure what's the best album to start off with for Swans.

I'll send tomorrow I guess, kind of drunk rn

Will check that song :P

I guess The Seer is a good gateway into modern Swans, though their last album is more accessible.

Btw, Gazpacho's singer is a guy :lol

Man if I hadn't been so cocky and would've accepted your deal of not telling me what you thought of Skyharbor's Patience when I played it the other day I could have sent it right now and maybe even topped the boards :lol

I know what I'm sending next, should be interesting to see your reaction to this!

So I calculated how far I was away from first place without bonus points and realized it's not that much actually. Then I realized I'm also not that far ahead of last place, when discounting bonus points.

Anyway, glad you liked it. I'll try to send something this weekend.

Also, it's a shame the short song bonus is only for 2:25 or below, if it were 3 minutes or less I would have a lot of cool stuff to send for it.

Looked it up, seems like a lot of work, how about using Plug.dj? :P

Or why don't we have an official Plug room for DTF or something, would love to jam some tunes with you guys there  ;D

Tinychat isn't a lot of work though, it requires you to click once on a link and you're there. Teamspeak is a lot of work but it isn't essential.

By the way, I sent my song in.

Done, join me (https://plug.dj/dream-theater-forums) if you fancy, guys.

:rollin At least I am not the only one, I asked some friends and they also thought it was a woman singing  :laugh:


Also since no one is sending songs under 2:25, I am upping the limit by 30s. The songs for short song bonus should now be 2:55 or under

Also Sacul, Elite and Scorpion please send today, I am going to start listening this evening.

I'm quite tempted by this but I don't think we have the same view on what makes a great, short song. I'll look at what I have under 2:55 and see what happens. Maybe some modern day folk with a punk vibe??

Which is a great thing btw, it's good to send things out of my comfort zone. We'll see if they grow on me, I hope to do results this weekend. No hangmanen this time, I don't have enough time to update in the next days.

do a different silly game then, like post artist names or song titles and have people guess who sent what.

or link the artists to the titles and then guess who sent what. and then the participants will have to confirm, so you don't have to.

Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v. R5 Listening

Just a list of band names could be fun too yeah, letting people guess which song was sent and the participants themselves could give hints maybe. (my band is obvious as fuck though :lol)

That I can do  ;D So here's the list of bands:

-Sólstafir
-The Flatliners
-Florence and the Machine
-Sonata Arctica
-East of the Wall
-Avengend Sevenfold
-The hotelier
-Rage Against the Machine
-SikTh
-Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v. R5 Listening
Post by: twosuitsluke on October 20, 2016, 04:31:17 AM
So I'd guess:

Elite - Sólstafir
Evermind - Sonata Arctica
Parama - East of the Wall
Train of Naught - Avengend Sevenfold
Luoto - SikTh

Don't want to guess too many as it'll be obvious which is mine (it may be obvious anyway  :facepalm:)

Also, I think I have picked a short song that might work and snag a bonus point for the next round  :tup
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v. R5 Listening
Post by: Train of Naught on October 20, 2016, 04:50:30 AM
Solstafir is Luoto, check the post above :lol

Flatliners sounds like a twosuitsluke band. RATM = Sacul. Florence and the Machine, gonna go ahead and guess Tyrias.

A7X is correct btw :tup I'll leave the rest open for others to guess, and still gotta guess some songs. For RATM I'm going to take a completely blind guess and say Guerilla Radio.
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v. R5 Listening

Post by: twosuitsluke on October 20, 2016, 05:02:28 AM
A7X - A Little Piece of Heaven?

If I ever sent anything by A7X it would only ever be off Waking the Fallen or City of Evil. I couldn't ever see myself sending anything off their self titled.

A7X - A Little Piece of Heaven?

It's their only song I like (not that I hear much) and I remember Train have sent it before. 
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v. R5 Listening
Post by: Train of Naught on October 20, 2016, 05:09:59 AM
Contrarily, I couldn't ever see myself sending anything off City of Evil or Waking the Fallen :lol even though I like those albums more. Not a single song off either of those albums ranks higher than ALPOH in my rankings. Plus I think something avant-garde would do better than a more standard A7X song on DTF in general.
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v. R5 Listening
Post by: Elite on October 20, 2016, 05:14:10 AM
Nah, Sacul sent Florence & the Machine. And probably even 'You've Got the Love' to snatch an easy bonus point.
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v. R5 Listening
Post by: home on October 20, 2016, 07:58:28 AM
So guessed so far:

Luoto: Sólstafir
Twosuitsluke: The Flatliners
Tyrias: Florence and the Machine
Evermind: Sonata Arctica
Parama: East of the Wall - Ocean of Water
Train of Naught: Avengend Sevenfold – A Little Piece of Heaven
??? The hotelier
Sacul: Rage Against the Machine
??? SikTh -
??: Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band

I should probably give some hints for the songs, otherwise it might take endless guessing  :P

Well, everyone who had been on the previous Ayreon listening session knows my song, I actually revealed it in the chat.

I'll give everyone else a hint, I was aiming for a "spoken word" bonus.
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v. R5 Listening
Post by: Train of Naught on October 20, 2016, 08:10:41 AM
Actually forgot which one it was. It was off Unia though right?

Elite: Captain B.
The Hotelier: Tomislav
SikTh: Scorpion
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v. R5 Listening
Post by: home on October 20, 2016, 08:19:18 AM
That's all correct  :tup

Some hints (I am terrible at this  :lol:)

Sacul's song is very relevant atm
Elite sent a four letter song
Scorpion sent a cover
Tomislav sent a beastly song
Twosuitsluke is gasping for air
Tyrias has the magic number

And you already know Evermind's album and the amount of letter's in Luoto's song  :D

Rage Against the Machine - War Within a Breath? every single RATM song is relevant right know, atleast for USA :lol
Title: Re: The Official Home Roulette v. R5 Listening
Post by: Tomislav95 on October 20, 2016, 09:11:26 AM

Evermind sent Caleb off of Unia, which is a fucking great choice.

Yes he did :tup

And the RATM song isn't Killing in the name (I would have rejected that song) nor War within a Breath, not even that sure about the lyrics, but the videoclip is pretty much about the situation in the US right now.

I don't have time to finish the write-ups today (they are mostly done, but I am leaving for Utrecht  in an hour, going to see God Is An Astronaut tonight  ;D) so here are some tidbits!



I listened to the songs in this round once while walking outside in the middle of the night with headphones on, and this song was absolutely perfect then  :angel:

I do think I would really enjoy this in a live setting though

This song is pretty good for a ‘insert genre’ song actually

Her voice works perfectly with the instrumentation to create quite a unique atmosphere

It’s a pretty simple composition but still a sound I enjoy very much

I love that chorus riff, it’s so groovy  :metal

This is exactly the sort of quirky song I was hoping to get for this bonus theme

I just love how insane this goes

the music really fits the story in the lyrics just really well

It’s got the same feel thoughout the song but still goes quite some places

Probably one of these, if any, not massively confident but we'll see.

Any one of the last three could potentially be mine, so yay at the fact that they all seem to be positive impresions. :tup

Also people, step up your game, SikTh haven't made that many covers. :P

Also, going off on the hints, here are two guesses:

Twosuitsluke sent The Flatliners - The Respirator.
Elite sent CB&HMB - Pena for the short song bonus.

Wrathchild was the only one I was familiar with, didn't know they had other covers so I can't really guess it.

Results!  ;D ;D

Twosuitsluke: The Flatliners - Drown in Blood 6

It starts pretty okay. It starts with a pretty generic(to my ears at least) punkish sound. The chorus is pretty strong though, but not too special again. I like the bridge, the way the vocals are there is pretty good. Thanks a lot for taking a risk, but it just doesn’t do much for me. I do think I would really enjoy this in a live setting though, but listening at home I just don’t have much use for this kind of music, sorry man.


Evermind Sonata Arctica – Caleb (Spoken Word) 7+1


Nice use of a sample at the start of the song, the keyboard thing works pretty well with it. I really like that this song has a few  more moments of breathing space compared to some other power metal songs, they always tire me after a while. Solo feels a little generic but isn’t that long anyway so that’s fine. Not such a big fan of the overall sound (as you probably had guessed) But this song is actually pretty good for a power metal song I think. It’s not something I’ll return too but I didn’t mind listening to it.


Parama: East of the Wall - Ocean of Water 7,25

I love the intro riff and heavier parts, it does meander a bit in-between. The overall sound is pretty enjoyable. i t’s got the same feel throughout the song but still goes quite some places, and stays interesting. I enjoyed listening to this, but I do find it hard to say more about it :p


Tyrias: Florence and the Machine - Seven Devils 7.5

Love the feel throughout the song. The choruses are really great, her voice works perfectly with the instrumentation to create quite a unique atmosphere. I do think the song is perhaps a little too repetitive the piano stays the same for most of the song. Or perhaps it’s just slightly too long… It does feel pretty unique though, and that is something I really like.


Sacul: Rage Against the Machine – Testify 7,5

The verses are pretty okay, not much melody in it but a nice rhythm in the vocals. I do just love that chorus riff, it’s so groovy \m/. Really the kind of the music that makes you want to move you just can’t stay still while listening. Those high sounds in background are a pretty nice addition and despite it not being a very pretty sound it works really well. If all of their songs have these kind of pumping rhythms, I think I would really enjoy them at certain occasions.


Tomislav: The hotelier – Soft Animals 8

The intro is really nice, I get a bit of Coldplay (Parachute album) vibes from it. The chorus is definitely the highlight of this song,  I love the rawness in his voice in the “make me believe” parts, the emotion in it is really nice. It’s a pretty simple composition but still a sound I enjoy very much.


Train of Naught: Avengend Sevenfold – A Little Piece of Heaven 8

Love the use of brass in the into, I do think that the sudden double base drums I perhaps a little too much? I love the part starting at 1:30, it’s got a really nice, kinda creepy feel to it. I really like the female vocals near the end too. The quirkiness of this song is really nice and works strangely well with the pretty dark lyrics (and that crazy music video) It makes the person in the lyrics seem even more insane, especially those mad laughter parts. I think that’s actually what I like most about this song: the music really fits the story of the lyrics just really well.


Elite: Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band – Pena 8 + 1 (Short Song)

I love the crazy talk in the start… “Bulbous also tapered” No idea what it means, I like that they not take it too seriously themselves. The music after it reminds me a little of early Pink Floyd, some of the same improvisational sound, the screaming spoken vocals over it make it sound it really different though. I guess this is exactly the sort of quirky song I was hoping to get for this bonus theme. This quite unlike anything I know. Scoring this song is not that easy though, there is little actual (conventional is a better word I guess?) music in it which makes it a little harder to compare it with the other songs in this round. I did really enjoy listening to this song, but I am not sure if I can listen to a whole album of this.


Scorpion: SikTh - Tupelo (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds cover) 8,25

Love the feeling in the intro, the distant vocals with that rhythm creates a nice and chilling atmosphere. The singing is really unique, love the different amount of sound the singer gets out of his voice. I listened to the original too, It’s quite amazing how much the singer from SikTh sounds like the original singer. I do like this version a lot better than the original so good choice! I just love how insane this goes, it fits the feeling of the song perfectly.


Luoto: Sólstafir – Miðaftann 8.5


The atmosphere in this is chilling wow, I listened to the songs in this round once while walking outside in the middle of the night with headphones on, and this song was so perfect then. I wasn’t very sober but damn, this song created such a magical feel. It’s a pretty repetitive composition but it works so good. The vocals are pretty great too, I actually quite like that I don’t understand a thing, it adds to the magical atmosphere I think. I really love the layers in the vocals at some parts too. Thanks, this one of the songs in the songs in the roulette that really reached me

Post by: home on November 11, 2016, 06:45:55 AM
Sorry for all the delay, here are the results!  ;D


Luoto: Oddland – Above and beyond 6.75 +1 (Djent)


Some nice rhythms at the start, I really don’t like the sound here though, it sounds really un-dynamic/compressed (not sure about the right term) , which makes it just not very pleasant too listen too for me. The singer sound great when he adds some grit like at the beyond meeee parts. The guitar solo is quite melodic which I really like. There are some really solid rhythms in this song but I feel it lacks something to make it really stand out, and there’s something about the sound which I just don’t really like, sorry :/


Tomislav: The Antlers – Palace 7.25

Another song were I thought had a female singer, but it actually is a man. :lol He has quite a feminine voice though (which is not a complaint btw, I quite like his voice).The melodies at the start are pretty beautiful, the addition of a trumpet is nice too. I would say this song feels a bit the same throughout the whole song, especially for a song that’s over 5 and a half minutes long I expected  a bit more variation.


Scorpion: Arcane – Unturning   7.25 +1 (Djent)

I’m really not too big a fan of the guitar at the intro, it’s almost a little annoying. I guess I’d like it more if it was a little bit softer in the mix or perhaps a bit more dynamic, but now it just takes the attention away from the vocals, which are pretty good. I do start to really like the song from2 minutes on. The singer reminds me a little of the singer from Haken at some parts. I love the build up after it has died down to just vocals and a little bit of guitar. The ending is really good. Scoring this song isn’t easy though, mixed feelings, I don’t like the first part at all, but the rest of the song is pretty good.


Sacul: Marketa Irglova - This Right Here 7.5

I really like the piano in this, it’s not too special but the melodies are really nice. The singer has a very pleasant voice too. Just a really nice song overall, but it doesn’t stand out that much. Though I don’t really feel that it should, it works good like this. I am not too sure about that extra part at the end. It’s okay but feels a bit disconnected from the rest of the song. Perhaps it fits with the lyrics?


Tyrias: Tango With Lions – A Long Walk 7,5

I like the combination of electric and acoustic guitar in the intro. I really like how it builds up in the bridge and then dies down almost completely in the end. The brass at the end works really good and sets the ending apart from the rest of the song. Overall it’s a pretty simple song with the verses based on just two different chords, but the mood is just really nice!


Twosuitsluke: Alice in Chains – Them Bones  8 + 1 (short song)

I like how this song directly starts full throttle, those Aaahs are a pretty nice addition. It jumps in to a catchy chorus pretty quickly. The guitar solo doesn’t really stand out but it works. This song is over before you know it, I feel like the length is actually one of the strengths of this song. It’s a pretty standard composition I probably would grow tired of it a lot faster if it was longer. But right now it’s a very nice short burst of energy which I really like!


Parama: Casualties of Cool – Flight 8

This starts really mysterious which I like followed by a very pleasant guitar. The female singer has a very nice voice which works great with Devin Townsends voice. I love I really like that there’s quite a lot of subtle stuff in the background. I wonder if that weird sound on the with my coliiiision is on purpose? Normally I am not too much a fan of a fade-out outro but I guess it works quite well here, with the atmospheric sounds taking over a little. Overall I just love the atmosphere in this!


Evermind - Árstíðir - Síðasta kveðjan 8.25

The piano at the start is really beautiful, low the few dissonant chords sprinkled throughout. Same as with the Solstafir song I got last round, I quite like that I can’t understand the vocals, it does add some kind of mystery. The melodies are really touching. I really love the cello? near the end that sound really epic. Thanks for  sending something that’s not power metal. I really enjoyed this song!


Train of Naught: Gojira – Born In Winter 8.5

So this is the whale core band right? I really dig the atmosphere in the intro, the low vocals really help set the mood. The screams in the distance during this part are pretty good too. My only slight criticism is that it stay’s a little too long in the same atmosphere before getting more intense,  bur when it does, it’s just epic, wow!  I love how intense it suddenly gets. The way the double base is used sparingly to add some extra force is just perfect. The heavy part of this song was easily my favourite bit of this round. The songs ends way too soon for me, I wouldn’t mind more of that heavy part.


Elite: Ghost B.C. – Cirice 8.5


I really like the intro riff, it has a really nice build up to the heavy riff after it. The singers voice is very pleasant to listen to, he sounds quite sensitive during the piano break, but fits the heavy parts really well too. I love the soft parts in between, making this song pretty dynamic. The solo is very melodic, which fits really well too. Not much too complain about this song, I really enjoyed listening to this song every time!


Score:

10 Twosuitsluike:         37,5 + 9 = 46,5 XXX
9 Evermind                  39 + 8,25 = 47,25 XX
8 Luoto:                 40,25 + 7.75 = 48 XXX
7 Tyrias                   41,25 + 7,5 = 48,75 XX
6 Tomislav95:           41,75 + 7.25 = 49 XX
5 Elite:                      41,75 + 8,5 = 50,25 XX
4 Sacul:                    43,5 + 7,5 = 51 XXX
3 Parama:                  43 + 8 = 51 XXX
2 Train of Naught         42,75 + 8,5 = 51,25 XXX
1 Scorpion:               44 + 8.25 = 52,25 XXX


Overall I think it’s one of the lesser round of this roulette, but it still had some really good songs. Again excuses for taking so long with this round, I followed two extra courses this first period and I kind of underestimated how much time that costed. Now that the exams are over the next rounds should go a little faster :azn:  Also since this is the last round for four of you, I’d make sure to use your last bonus point if you haven’t already this round. In case of a tie, the person with the lowest scoring song of the persons in the tie will get cut. Please send before the end of the weekend!, I’ll do hangmanen next week!  :hat

Wow! I was quietly confident about the chorus but I was dreading negative comments about the (admittedly, slightly absurd) sudden ending. I wish it lasted a bit longer, but I love that song. The more mellow parts are not too representative of their sound but if you like the vocals in the chorus you would likely dig their more loved-by-DTF albums like The Way of all Flesh and From Mars to Sirius.

I already hinted at my next submission in plug.dj once, I think, sending now anyway.

EDIT: Sent :corn in this roulette more than any other I'm pretty shocked this hadn't been sent in any of the previous rounds already.

Results are here!  ;D

Elite: Ben Folds Five – One Angry Dwarf And 200 Solemn Faces   7.25+1

I like the piano at the start of the song, even though I’m usually not a big fan of this kind of really happy piano but it does make smile. It also works great in this song. The pianist has quite a unique style I think, almost a but percussive. I expected something really pretentious based on the title but this song actually really fun. It doesn’t do that much for me though. 


Evermind: Mark Knopfler - Heart Of Oak 7.25+1


The acoustic guitar in this is really nice. I really like the feel of this song, some really nice melodies. It’s bit difficult to say more about it as it’s just a very short but pretty song that I guess works better in the context of the album.

Thanks a lot for playing Evermind! Lighthouse is still one of my favourite songs of this roulette and I’ve already listened to the album quite sometimes, it’s very beautiful. I am also really looking forward to checking out Aristidir, thanks!



Sacul: Lord Huron - Ends of the Earth      7.25

I quite like the intro. I really like how the verse goes to the chorus,  it’s a pretty good chorus too. The part after the chorus sounds really joyful. It follows a pretty standard song structure with some nice instrumental additions. Overall it’s a pretty chill song, but not something I’m really looking for I guess.


Luoto: Ghost Brigade: Disembodied Voices 7,5

I really like this kind of intro, I like how they continue building up on the initial atmosphere when the vocals and guitar come in. The transition into a more intense part is pretty good too, I quite dig the harsh vocals here, especially with the guitar providing a melody. I like how they briefly return to a part similar to the intro before ending. Overall this song doesn’t stand out enormously but is just really solid, and I think I will check out this album.

You definitely got the most variation in scores, I think you got an 8,5 twice and have sent both the highest and lowest scoring song of a round. I really like that you sent me a lot of different styles of (harsh) vocals. I am especially looking forward to checking out more from Solstafir. Thanks a lot for playing!



Twosuitsluke: Astronoid – Up and Atom   7.5

This directly starts high energy, nice. I wasn’t too fond of the vocals at first but they grew on me, they works surprisingly well. Not too big fan of the solo, a bit too much shredding and lack of melody for me. The part after it is quite epic. Overall, I think this is instrumentally a very solid song but I do feel that it does lack something to make it stand out.

I want to thank you for sending a huge variation in songs, I’m sorry I couldn’t reward the “risks” with higher scores but I still really appreciate you sending them! Thanks for playing!


Tyrias: Azedia – Something   7,75+1

Love the feeling at the start of the song, it sounds really mysterious. I am not a huge fan of vocals in the “somethings wrong” part, they sound a bit too, idk, electric? And the vocals melodies aren’t too special. I do really love the electronic sounds in this song, they somehow work really great here.. Can’t go wrong with a sample of Terrence McKenna of course, he’s got a very pleasant voice to listen to. Though I don’t agree with everything he says, I really like listening to his lectures sometimes. Overall, beside some of the vocals I really liked this song.

Despite having some really solid scores throughout I’m sorry you didn’t make the cut into the epic round. You did still gave me quite some albums to check out. Thanks a lot for playing Tyrias!


Parama: Brand New – Jesus 8


This starts with some nice but not too special guitar playing. The vocals in this song are really the highlight, especially near the end. It’s really nice how each vocal layer is clearly distinguishable there. My only complaint is that I don’t really like how this song stops and then continuous for another minute, I think I would have liked it a bit better if it didn’t do that. Overall it’s a really nice and touching song but it didn’t hit me like Limousine did.


Scorpion: Portishead – Roads   8


Some interesting electronic sounds at the start. It works great with the simple drums and the singers beautiful voice. The strings are pretty nice throughout. I would say this song is perhaps slightly too repetitive, it stays quite minimalistic throughout and never really breaks out of its atmosphere but it works. I do just love the melancholic ness of this song.


Train of Naught: Brand New – Limousine (MS Rebridge) 9

The atmosphere at the start is so sad and melancholic. It really hits me when the song gets a little heavier. Some really nice use of dynamics. The vocals are really good trough the song, as with the other Brand New song, I really liked how the different vocal layers are really audible I read the story behind the lyrics that’s a terrible thing to happen. It does give the lyrics even more impact. Damn, this song is really intense, it really hits me, thanks man!


Tomislav: Elliott Smith – Between the Bars 9,5+1

This song gave me goosebumps, wow. His voice is really unique, it’s so thin but it sounds almost heavenly. I really like the guitar in this too, it’s got some interesting chords, especially for this kind of music. I have to say it feels kind of weird giving such a simple song such a high score but it’s just such a perfect little song, so honest and touching. This might just be the song that has reached me most so far in the roulette so I feel it really deserves this score, thanks!


Score:

10 Twosuitsluike:         46,5  + 7,5 = 54
9 Luoto:                 48 + 7,5 = 55,5
8 Evermind                  47,25 +8.25 = 55,5
7 Tyrias                  48,75 + 8,75 = 57,5
---------------------------------------------------------
6 Sacul:                    51 +7,25 = 58,25
5 Elite:                      50,25 + 8.25 = 58,5
4 Parama:                  51 + 8 = 59
3 Tomislav95:           49 + 10,5 =59,5
2 Scorpion:               52,25 +8 = 60
1 Train of Naught         51,25 + 9 = 60,25


Everyone below the line can go ahead and send me a song for round 7, remember you can send one song or multiple songs flowing into each other as long as the total length isn’t longer than 20 minutes (again I won’t be too strict, just be reasonable). I will rate this song (or songs) out of 20 points instead of 10.
For the others, as I said already, thanks a lot for playing, I hope you enjoyed the roulette!

Much of that Ghost Brigade album is like current post-rock tinged Anathema that went gloomy and metal on you again. Keyboards and sampling is actually pretty huge on it.

Post by: Train of Naught on November 22, 2016, 11:35:59 PM
Okay, went ahead and sent the songs I was planning to send anyway. Always wanted to send this band but I never did because of the awkward mid-measure endings, since it's meant to be listened to in full.

Didn't realize there is only one round between now and the finals, hope I make it into the top 3 because I'm dying to be part in another EP round again :metal

I know the margin between 6th and 1st is very slim but I'll be working on my EP in advance as well cause I need to sift through a lot of shit for this. So I'll probably have the EP completed by the time results are in whether I made it to the finals or not. :hat

Oceansize - The Frame :omg:

S please

I noticed the band I sent just took this album off spotify. What the hell, I wanted to go listen to it.
Correct and yeah and I noticed it too, but I found their bandcamp page which has the songs on it.
Yeah that'll have to do, too bad the transitions aren't as smooth on bandcamp :(

This round gets rated out of 20 points right? So I think a 9 for Oceansize is about fair :neverusethis:

Keep dreeming  ;D Tbh, there's only one song this round I'm considering giving 18 points at the moment. But then again some of these songs are quite a lot to digest so I expect them to grow a bit more still.

Round 8 Results!  :hat

Scorpion: Aisles: Club Hawaii - Falling - In the Probe 14/20

I love how they set the setting with a small conversation and end with a question and then reply with music. The music starts nice and proggy. I’m not too sure about the opera like vocals. The wackiness in some of these passages is really great. I like how it’s getting a little more intense near the end of Club Hawaii, but the vocals do fail a little to transfer that. The crazy ending is very good though xd
The vocals do fit the beautiful piano in Falling, despite being so short I’m pretty sure this song is my favourite of the three.
In the probe is by far my least part, the vocals feel almost a little winery and I feel it just lingers on for too long. I’m sorry to sound so negative about this part as I did really like the first two songs.

I feel sorry to cut you as you’ve been at the  for most of the roulette and gave me so many songs to check out. I’m really looking forward to listening to the albums, thanks a lot for playing!



Train of Naught
: Chaosbay: Prologue - Three Brothers (Will You Marry Me) – Arrow One (Raise the Veil) 15/20

Really love the feel in prologue, it starts nice and atmospheric. The heavy part is pretty good too, not too big a fan of the mix here though, it sounds a little blurry, or perhaps a bit too pushing, especially in the intro of three brothers. The vocals are pretty nice, not so sure about the distorted effect at some parts but the chorus part is pretty epic. Cool djenty part at the end of three brothers, I like how it’s alternated with some nice melodic metal.
Some nice grooves at the start of Arrow One, and a pretty nice chorus too. The instrumental part feels not too special but I do really love the more atmospheric part after it.
Overall I liked this song, but it doesn’t stand out as much as some of the other songs sent this round, also I’m just not a fan of the mix

I was pretty sure you were going to make it to the ep round, but there was some tough competition this round. Still looking forward to that playlist of songs you made. Thanks for playing Train!



Elite: Flaming Row: Lea’s Delivery – Elinoire – Rage of Despair 15/20

This really gives me a Dream Theater vibe from the start, nice.  I really love the middle part of Lea’s Delivery too, especially the part where there are multiple voices/melodies at the same time, that’s really beautiful. Love how they use different singers for different characters in a true Ayreon like fashion. Elinoire does lose my attention for a moment but the guitar solo really makes up for it , really melodic solo’s like this. So for the vocals were really y favourite part of the songs but I do really not dig the “harsh” vocals in Rage of Despair, the chorus is pretty nice though. It  kind of has that epic power metal sound.  The instrumental section at the bridge is pretty good. Overall I liked these three songs, besides the harsh vocals in Rage of Despair and will definitely listen to the whole album.

Thanks a lot for playing Elite! Looking really forward to listening to more of Ghost for one, and also to Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band.


Parama: Oceansize - The Frame 17/20

I wasn’t too big a fan of the intro at first but I’ve come to really like it, after multiple listens it really gives me this feeling of expectation/anticipations of what’s to come. I do like the way gradually things are added, creating a really beautifully, slightly melancholic atmosphere with vocals fitting it just perfectly. I just love the chorus, it’s really beautiful. Really love the middle part too, really interesting sound with the floating vocals: I am not the picture, now I'm... Awesome how they repeat that melody with the guitar and make it really heavy. Overall I really love this song, the composition is not even that special, it’s almost a kind of drawn out verse-chorus, verse-chorus, bridge but it works great and doesn’t get boring at all.


Sacul: Godspeed You! Black Emperor – Storm 18/20

They somehow manage to set this beautiful atmosphere in just a few seconds. I just love the strings here and how they get louder, oh it’s just pure beauty when the drums join in here. They keep this part up for quite some time but it really doesn’t get boring, on the contrary even it really put me in this almost trance like state.
 The songs does meander on for a bit when that part ends at about the seven minute mark, before gradually building up intensity again. It takes some time but it’s so damn good again. At around 12 minutes the song takes quite a twist, switching beauty for a very intense, and almost quite creepy sound.
The samples is really great, I’m not sure actually what they want to say with it, I like how it’s barely eligible and almost just serves as a background for some really subtle but beautiful piano. This song really feels like a journey, with both ugliness and beauty in it, and that despite quite some repetitive part’s just keeps giving more to discover.


Tomislav: Stoned Jesus – I’m The Mountain 18/20

I really love the acoustic intro, my only complaint in the whole song is that the singers voice sounds a little weak here but it fits the feel. I like how it slows down before transitioning in the next part. The melody here, the one that returns quite often is really really beautiful, I’m just not getting tired of it at all. This part builds up in a way I really like, getting nice and heavy, love the thick guitar tones too.  The song then goes in way softer territory again before returning to a beautifully heavy sound again. The vocals feel as one of the weakest part but I just love it when the singer belts out I’M THE MOUNTAIN at about 10 minutes, that followed by some intense guitars is really my favourite moment of the song. Yeah you’re on a roll Tomislav, really looking forward to your EP.




Score:

6 Scorpion:               60+14=74
5 Elite:                      58,5+16=74,5
4 Train of Naught    60,25+15=75,25
---------------------------------
3 Parama:                 59+17=76
2 Sacul:                    58,25+18=76,25
1 Tomislav95:           59,5+18=77,5



The top three can send me an EP:
Minimum length 25 minutes, maximum length 35 minutes. You have to put in songs from at least three different artists and can put in max two songs per artist. The score will be the average of the songs (which are each scored out of 10 points) times three, plus the flow (which will be scored out of 5). The maximum amount of points you can get in this round is thus 35.

For the other three: Thanks again!

That really depends on the song, if it fits/works than it's fine, like in Neutral Milk Hotels Holland, 1945 or the last part of The King of Carrot Flowers I think the noisy production almost adds something to the song. But especially with (prog)metal I usually prefer clear/breathy productions. Though noice works sometimes I guess...

Private or not, any Spotify playlist is accessible when someone in in your friends list is listening to that playlist without having private mode on, his last played track was Hurt by Johnny Cash and it'll automatically show the domain (album/artist page/playlist) in which it was played. So there :corn

Just like I know you are currently playing Darren Korb - The Mancer's Dilemma (Bastion OST) :corn :corn

Time for some tidbits!
Quote
The vocals really contribute a lot to the atmosphere, which is hauntingly beautiful.

The combination of orchestra and heaviness is done quite often, but not often so well as it is done here

I feel the playing lacks some dynamics especially at the runs in the middle, it sounds a bit robotic almost

and this song suddenly gets super epic, I really feel it wow, this is joy

Easily the most poetic and touching song about a serial killer I’ve heard so far!

I really like the short bumps of louder instrumentation accompanying the vocals

It sounds even more honest to me, like he’s feeling the lyrics more than the original singer, which is quite peculiar since he didn’t write them

Love the groovy sludgy feel here

The note that keeps repeating itself sounds quite interesting at the start, but starts getting kind of annoying at some point.

There are three tidbitsper EP. To be honest I have no clue as to who is going to win, I haven't counted the scores yet as I might change the current scores of the songs a little when I do another listen tomorrow. It looks like it's going to be pretty damn close.

I'll send you the link Luke!

from what i know of Mumford & Sons 3 could be them?  :lol
That could be true for some of their other songs but this one is very emotional, I'd be surprised if that tidbit's about it. But that's just my opinion :P

Thistle and Weeds is quite dynamic actually

my EP is probably too heavy for home I dunno

A lot of my metal hasn't done great in this roulette
It's not due to the heaviness tho

btw I think when home said it was close he meant close between your two eps and mine is way off in third place

:corn:

Finally! It took some time...


Tomislav: Indieana Jones and the Thirst for real blood


01: Thy Light - Suici.De.Pression (Introduction to my end) 6.5

I can see why you choose this song as an introduction as it does a great job of setting the mood. However besides creating a nice atmosphere this track doesn’t do a lot for me, my main complaint is the piano sound, it sounds very un-organic and programmed. I feel the playing lacks some dynamics especially at the runs in the middle, it sounds a bit robotic almost. The composition is quite nice but not doesn’t strike me as being very special, it has some nice melodies. It’s kind a stupid that this song drags down the total ep score as it does works great as an intro track, but I guess it increases the flow score. I do wonder how this song would sound with a more organic sounding piano and some more dynamic playing.

02: Okkervil River - For Real 8.5
Nice mood with the acoustic guitar and subtle sounds in the background at the start. I really like the short bumps of louder instrumentation accompanying the vocals. Nice instrumental bit in the middle, quite an interesting lead sound. I really love the vocalist, he does a great job of conveying emotion, I love how his voice gets all raspy near the end of the song. Pretty great ending too.

03: Giles Corey - No One is Ever Going to Want Me 8

This starts very subtle and mysterious with very fitting vocals. The strings and organ really add to the atmosphere. The songs starts dragging a little halfway, I’d really like them to break out of the same feel for a bit I guess. The extra voices are really beautiful. There’s finally some variation at about 5 minutes in the form of a pretty nice acoustic instrumental part. Then the “WANT TO FORGET” and this wakes you up. It suddenly gets super epic, I really feel it wow.  This is joy, it honestly makes me smile. Overall I feel a bit mixed, the first part has a really nice feel but is dragging on just a bit too long, the ending however is definitely worth the wait. I want to add that I feel the song is dragging less when I know what’s coming since it’s building anticipation, but I wouldn’t mind if they’d cut the first part by two minutes or so
.
04: Manchester Orchestra - I Can Feel a Hot One 7,5

I love the melancholy in this, it’s pretty sad but also beautiful. The minimalistic instrumentation really adds to the mood. I like the switches between multiple vocals and just one voice.
The nonsensical vocals

05: Mumford & Sons – Thistle and Weeds 8,5
The dynamics in the intro are really cool. The singer’s voice is pretty good too, the vocal melodies in the chorus are quite catchy. The bridge is great, some lovely piano and really great dynamics again, and touching vocals. It ends in a beautiful climax followed by a very bare bones outro, which works just perfectly. I guess this is indeed a pretty radio friendly song as you mentioned but it’s a great one!


06: Okkervil River – So Come Back, I'm waiting 8,5

The vocals in the intro feel so fragile, which is only amplified by the soft guitar playing. I like how the vocalist starts to sing more confidently as the song progresses and more instrumentation is added only to get back to subtleness again.  The climax near the end is really good, this is a great way to end this EP man!

Flow: 4
I think the flow is really good!  Suici.De.Pression, although my least favourite track on this EP works great as an intro. There are enough loud moments to break up the soft music on this EP and it ends with a nice climax too. I really enjoyed listening to this EP, thanks Tomislav!

Average EP Songs Score: 7,92
Total EP Score: 23,75 + 4 = 27,75
Total Score: 77,5 + 27,75 = 105,25



Sacul: Broken Chords can sing a Little.


01: Nine Inch Nails - Something I Can Never Have  7.5

I like how this starts really minimalistic with a pretty simple piano figure repeating itself over and over. There’s enough emotion in the vocals to keep this song interesting despite its repetitiveness. I’m not a big fan of some of the vocal effects, not too sure if it’s an effect or just the microphone, but it sounds a little compressed. The guitar playing a subtle melody is pretty nice. The way the vocals get really raspy is pretty great.

02: Silver Mt. Zion – Movie (Never made) 7,5

Nice chilling atmosphere from the start on. Another pretty minimalistic song, though this is way more subtle, even getting completely silent at times. It makes me kind of feel that it lacks some substance. It’s a pretty nice piece, but besides some of the vocal melodies there’s nothing that really stands out. The vocals are really beautiful though.

03: Dead Can Dance – Amnesia 6.5
I’ve heard the name of this band in a Steven Wilson song, which pickled my curiosity but I have never really checked this band out, so thanks! The note that keeps repeating itself sounds quite interesting at the start, but starts getting kind of annoying at some point.  IT has more substance than the song before it but is less beautiful and also quite a bit longer. This song really starts dragging,

04: Sufjan Stevens – John Wayne Gacy, Jr. 9.25

This is definitely the highlight of your EP, wow. It’s really beautiful with some great vocal melodies. Great voice too, the high notes are so beautifully, the oooh my good is just chilling. I think the best part might be the lyrics, that last line “And in my best behaviour, I am really just like him”  If I understand correctly it’s about how even serial killers start out as “normal” persons, hence the comparison. Easily the most poetic and touching song about a serial killer I’ve heard so far!

05: Glen Hasard – Bird of Sorrow 8

I’ve think I’ve read you really praising this song, and I can see where you’re coming from even though it doesn’t hit me as hard as it probably hit you. Love how he screams haaanging on, The instrumentation doesn’t stand out too much but the vocals are really good, there’s really a lot of emotion in them.   

06: Sufjan Stevens – Blue Bucket of Gold 8,25
This is again really beautiful! I love the almost ethereal backing vocals (oohohooho)in some parts. Not much to say about this song really, I like John Wayne Gacy, Jr. a bit better but if these two songs are representative I’m really looking forward to checking out more from this artist. Also, the ending of this song is really chilling.

07: Johnny Cash – Hurt 8,75
This song is quite depressing but also really beautiful. I listened to the NIN versions, and yeah this one’s better. It sounds even more honest to me, like he’s feeling the lyrics more than the original singer, which is quite peculiar since he didn’t write them. Yeah, the amount of emotion conveyed trough the vocals is just really good.

Flow: 3,5/5
There’s nothing jarring in the flow, but the EP starts to drag a little during the first half with three pretty minimalistic songs. From the first Sufjan Stevens song on I really love this EP. Hurt is a pretty great song to end it! I will find a way….

Average EP Songs Score: 7,96
Total EP Score: 23,9 + 3,5 = 27,4
Total Score: 76,25 + 27,4 = 103,65



Parama: Siege of the Superego

01: Cult of Luna - Marching to the Heartbeats 7,5
This song definitely has a great atmosphere to start the EP of. Not a track that works super great as a standalone but it fits the mood of the EP. The vocals aren’t exactly my cup of tea but I appreciate what they do for the song. The song doesn’t really go anywhere, but I don’t feel like it needs to. It just has this very interesting sound that really does something.

02: Earthside - Mob Mentality 8,75
Love the almost theatrical intro! The short bursts are really great, and coupled with a very organic sounding orchestra it’s really amazing. I think the vocalist really fits the theatricality of the song, but he does sound a bit one-sided sometimes, he doesn’t handle the softer parts as superbly. The chorus kicks ass though, and I really love his voice here. The orchestration in the background is really good there too. I really like how the heavy parts are switched with some softer orchestra parts giving them some breathing space. They help to build up to the second chorus perfectly too. The combination of orchestra and heaviness is done quite often, but not often so well as it is done here!

03: The Ocean - Stenian (Mount Sorrow) 8
Nice brooding mood during the first part which goes on for perhaps a bit too long before transitioning into a really epic sounding riff. Just love the groovy sludgy feel here! The screaming vocals turn me of a little but when the cleans enter I’m digging this again. Some nice grooves overall, this song has me bobbing my head duude. The drumming rolls in the bridge part goes surprisingly well together with the floaty vocals.  I like the screaming vocals a lot more when they’re together with clean vocals at the end. This song does end a little abrupt.

04: Dissona - The Last Resistance 7,5
Again a nice intro that sets the atmosphere just right, this time transitioning into something I would hesitate to call djent. It’s an interesting sound for shore. Love how it resolves in piano but after that it starts to get pretty standard prog-metal. I like the burst of energy with the rawer vocals. It’s followed by a slightly more unique sounding part too, with some almost easternish sounding vocal part. The return of the piano as outro is pretty great. Overall, I can say I love the first one and a half minute but after that I feel a little indifferent about the song. It picks up again as the song progresses though.

05:  Cynic – Nunc Stans 8,5
I just love the mood in this song, it’s very mysterious and slightly melancholic. The floaty vocals fit just perfectly, yeah the vocals really contribute a lot to the atmosphere, which is hauntingly beautiful. Not sure what else to say about this.

Flow: 4,5

Definitely the most consistent EP, great flow too! Though you kind of cheated by adding crossfades, just kidding, I appreciate the extra effort! Love how the intro track sets the mood just right and Nunc Stans is a surprisingly good way to end the EP. It’s the perfect calm after the storm (I know such a cliché)

Average EP Songs Score: 8,05
Total EP Score: 24,15 + 4,5 = 28,65
Total Score: 76 + 28,65 = 104,65


And the winner is….


Neither the person sending the highest scoring song this round
at the third place: Sacul with a total of  103,65 points


Nor the person with the best scoring EP:

At the second place: Parama with a total of 104,65 points

But it is:
Tomislav with a total of 105,25 points!


Congratulations Tomislav! I really feel like you deserve to win, you we’re on a roll for the last few rounds and I absolutely love Between The Bars, I’ve listened to it almost daily since you sent it, so thank you so much! Also a lot of thanks to Sacul and Parama, you’ve both given me a ton of albums to check out. A Hair On The Head Of John The Baptist was even my third most listened to song on Spotify in the past half year.

I will post a best-of playlist soon, I guess this weekend, and also do a short write-up of Train’s EP and Parama’s bonus songs.

I do now realise that I should've picked a less busy period to start a roulette, as I really had to cramp some time in to do write-ups, and finished this roulette more than am onth later than I anticipated. But I really loved having a playlist of songs to listen to everytime, and I discovered some absolutely beautiful musc!

Thanks everyone!  :hat
