:| Good grief.. I told you guys to check my horrid math at the scoring.. I'll obsessively go back to make sure the scores are correct now.. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!!!


**** I think I have it correct now, please make sure of your scores and let me know if you see anything out of line****

Apologies again on that  :sadpanda:

Totally fine, don't worry about it! Like I said, it probably won't make a difference anyhow  :D

Hey Web, what are your thoughts on electronica? Ambient? Post-rock? I feel like I should have a decent idea of that by now, going into the final round, but it doesn't seem that you've received much of that from this roulette.

I feel like I like them depending on the songs but I haven't really listened to those genres extensively.

Sent. Hopefully these two tracks give lonestar and UMH the Heisman, and take it to the house for me.

Great roulette WR... Gonna miss this one.
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

Round 10: FINAL ROUND - 2 songs from a band that show off different spectrum's or styles.



First, I'd like to thank everyone for participating and being so great about the timing and scoring and the competition of it all around. This forum is so great and I'm very thankful to you guys for some awesome new musical discoveries!



Ultimetalhead


maudlin of the Well


"They Aren't All Beautiful" (7.5)

Have to say the vocals were a little startling lol. Maybe I'll fully come around to growls one day! I like the staggered riffs and the passionate nature of the song. The nice little groove breakdown near the end complete with horns was exceptionally cool.

 
"Geography" (8.0)

And then this song starts with almost placid clean vocals and acoustics...keep waiting for the explosion (will it come?). The nice melody in the acoustic guitar carries the song a little better than the vocal but the vocal isn't bad. The song has a slight unsettling nature underneath it's calm.




Nekov


Frost*


"Hyperventilate" (8.5)

Begins sort of like some later Pink Floyd material with the sullen but beautiful keys/piano and then wham! The way the song builds and all the instrumentation really hits all the right spots for me. Becomes quite orchestral towards the end, reminds me of some Steve Vai material actually and of course Dream Theater in ways. Superb instrumental piece!

 
"Welcome to nowhere" (9.0)

Piano/keys intro again but this time with some electronica feel. Interesting vocal effect at the beginning. Another hammer to the face moment after about a minute but I love those! Sounds like there might be two singers in this song? Some nice vocal melodies here. Like the many different qualities this song has. For me this song has just something magical about it that really reaches so many of the things I enjoy about music at the moment. Quite impressed with this band!





Big Hath


The Sword


"Cloak of Feathers" (8.0)

This is a band I've intended for a while to try and get into. Obviously love their sound being a big Sabbath, Zep fan and they carry that torch well. This is right in my wheelhouse.


"The Chronomancer I: Hubris" (8.0)

Really love the incorporation of the massive riffs and grooves, I think both you and I are fans of that. Musically this is just awesome stuff. Vocally could stand out a little more or they could stretch the musical approach some (sort of like how Mastodon progs it up a little) but staying true to who they are, they really have a killer sound!




senecadawg2


Sigur Ros


"Hoppípolla" (7.5)

Really do get the uplifting vibe from this song. The piano and orchestration are quite pretty and as it builds it definitely carries you upward. Although I don't understand the vocals they are nice and set the mood for the song, as if you can hear a smile in them.


"Untitled 8" (8.0)

The slow slightly howling entrance here gives a chill. From the start it does give the impression of a cold barren surrounding. They do a very good job of establishing a feel with all the aspects of their music. I can almost picture someone mentally falling apart here (could just be me lol).  This band creates some excellent mood music.




jingle.boy


Frameshift


"Human Grain" (7.5)

Very shocked right away to hear Sebastian Bach singing here. Never really placed him singing prog-type music, not that he couldn't handle it clearly. He stretches out in front of the music here very well. The lyrical story is very interesting and I'll have to check out the theme of perspectives on violence. The song is a fairly straight forward prog-metal sounding song.


"La mer" (8.0)

Ok what is it with Bach and LaBrie? LOL! Very interesting they've worked in similar projects considering they don't really seem the same style although both are great vocal talents. Definitely a LaBrie ballad. His voice sounds really good here. I guess musically it's a little more restrained than work with Dream Theater but the piano sells it well with me of course.



lonestar


Karnya


"A Paraphreniac Menticide" (7.0)

I can tell from this piece that this band is a really high quality prog band. Musically they have great players and a strong vocalist. Some of the newer prog bands sometimes struggle to find a center and meander a bit while showing off their chops and I kind of get that vibe here. I feel like a little more focus could have strengthened the tune.



" Where the Silence Remains..." (8.0)

Like the immediate emotional feel from the vocal here and then the nice keys/synths intro. This song really carries me with the keys and guitar. This song just felt more passionate throughout and that always wins with me. That's not to say the previous tune didn't have it maybe this one just spoke to me more. Regardless, my interest turned up a great deal after hearing this. Nice one!




FINAL Standings:

1.jingle.boy: (8.5) + (8.0) + (8.0) + (7.5) + (8.0) = 40
1..Nekov: (6.5) + (8.0) + (7.5) + (8.5) + (9.0) = 39.5

2.Ulitmetalhead: (8.0) + (8.0) + (7.5) + (7.5) + (8.0) = 39

3.Big Hath: (6.5) + (8.0) + (8.0) + (8.0) + (8.0) = 38.5
3.lonestar: (7.5) + (8.0) + (8.0) + (7.0) + (8.0) = 38.5
3.senecadawg2: (7.0) + (8.0) + (8.0) + (7.5) + (8.0) = 38.5


(please check my scoring and math!)



Most sincere apologies for errors. Only thing worse than my math skills seems to be copy and pasting which caused my final scores to be loopy.

So.... Nekov absolutely roars back just a little short with a great band submission at the end. jingle.boy really brought it in the finals with strong selections through the 4 final rounds for the win.







 

Thank you again to everyone for your participation and it has been all my pleasure with all this great music coming my way!  :metal :hefdaddy

Double damn!!!  I was considering Frost* myself as well. Guess those low scores from the early rounds came back to haunt me.

I find it only fair they came back and bit you in the ass.  :angel:

Nice roulette once again, I had fun participating.

It's always nice to win (and kicking Diego's ass is always a plus  :D). But so long as the host is the real winner, I'm good.

I'm glad to have made it past all the eliminations, especially considering my collection of 60s-80s music is so damn small and I was competing against fogeys with much more sizeable collections. Congrats jingle.boy!

Quality roulette man, glad to be a part of it. Very pleased with my finish considering all my submissions were gut instinct and totally sent on the fly. Thanks for putting up with my brevity.



Chad- congrats, and suck it man.

Again, my apologies for the errors... my mind has been in a million places recently and the only escape has been the wonderful music you guys have sent. Everyone really sent something that I have loved or will definitely be digging deeper into in the months to come. I was most certainly the winner in that way. Thanks so very much everyone!

Going even further on scoring, I got a 7 a couple rounds back, not a 7.5 so Chad's victory is a bit more ample.

Chad, not getting any compliments from me on this one, I'm a sore loser.

I like my victories 'ample'.   ;D

No worries, I'm a terrible winner!



I've lulled you all into a false sense of security with my last place finishes. Now, you're all playing for second place, bitches!



Guess I should thank WR for the format of this roulette too, otherwise I'd have finished middle of the pack.
