Sorry guys, been busy and stuff. Results within a few days though. Also a heads up, I'll be gone for like 10 days in like a week. After that rounds should only take 3-4 days though.

No offense, but why start something when time management is obviously an issue, and you are going away for almost 2 weeks?

To the first question: good point. I should have thought about that. Secondly, this thing that came up got planned like 3 weeks ago. By then the roulette had already started.

I think I'll still be able to finish this within 2 months, which is what is asked of me.

Round 5: YtseBitsy propels his way upwards

Big Hath: Graham Central Station - The Jam (6.5/10)

I know of Larry Graham and his band too. I had heard this track before but it didn't really captivate me. It didn't this time either. Funky tracks can be slightly hit or miss for me, it really depends on the song.

senecadawg2: Orion – Reconstruct (7/10)

The song is good, except for the fact that I'm not a huge fan of the breakdown which is like the entire latter half of the song. The first half was excellent though, I might explore them further.

Nekov: Bill Bruford – Feels Good To Me (5.5/10)

Eh. The typical 70's fusiony sound. Never been hugely into that anyway. This song isn't that bad, but it fails to really do anything for me.

Ben_Jamin: OC ReMix #1586: Shadow of the Colossus 'Snowfall on Forbidden Lands' (4/10)

Well, I almost feel like I'm generous for giving a 4/10. This remix didn't do anything for me at all.

Shadow Ninja 2.0: The Swords – Lawless Lands (7/10)

I'm not totally a fan of the guitar sound, and not a huge fan of the vocals either. Otherwise this was rocking and I can't find fault in it. Chorus has that organ just laying there and it's awesome. The riff itself and the soloing is really good and weighs up for other poorer parts about this.

kingshmegland:  Slow Motion Reign – Big Life Simulator (7/10)

Not too bad. I really liked how the song started off, and it gave off a Big Big Train vibe too.

Scorpion: Jonas Hellborg – Solitude (9/10)

I've heard of these names before, but never really listened. Holy schaisse this is awesome. Need to make this a priority.

Tyrias: Tango With Lions – A Long Walk (5.5/10)

Not terrible, but not fantastic either. Digging the trombone at the end, but otherwise, nothing spectacular.

adace: Boards of Canada – Dayvan Cowboy (6/10)

It was good, but I thought it was going to build up to something even greater all throughout. When it didn't, I was kind of disappointed.

wolfking: Sieges Even – Tidal (7.5/10)

The chorus is really fantastic, but the rest of the song isn't as good – but not bad. It definitely fits the archetype of prog metal though, but not as heavy.

YtseBitsySpider: Anthrax – In The End (9.5/10)

Well. I don't know why I haven't paid much attention to Anthrax. I've got to change that ASAP, because this track was awesome. Exactly what you would want from a proper heavy metal song. Huge eargasm when the main verse-riff kicks in at about 1:05. +1 for that.

Total Score:
Shadow Ninja 2.0: 40.5
senecadawg2: 40
Scorpion: 39
Big Hath : 37
YtseBitsySpider: 36.5
____________________
kingshmegland: 36
Ben_Jamin: 35
Tyrias: 35.5
Nekov: 32.5
wolfking: 32.5
adace: 31.5

The line represents the current cutoff point. Looking bleak for Nekov, wolfking and adace, but you never know what might happen. Remember, after next round the bottom five are eliminated.

Round 6: I'll keep it open again. I seem to get a good variety of stuff from you anyway, I don't want to change that.

Well, this has been one of my worst performances in a roulette. Ended up sending something fun since I don't see me going through beyond the next round.

(smirk)

You should listen to that track king...it's my go to roulette winner. I'm not going to win, but I needed to make the cut.

The middle part of it for me is just so metal......and Anthrax have matured nicely in their old age.
Take care everyone - Bet you all didn't even notice I was gone.

Happy Lives to you all.

Is that from the last album they did?  I heard 3 songs off of it and they kicked ass.  It's been a long, long time since I listened to them.

2011 Worship Music I think it was called...

The Devil You Know
In The End
The Constant

were the 3 that clicked for me. I think older anthrax suffered from some lax production gave it a very fringe punk metal sound. That 2011 offering was pretty polished. Maybe even "brickwalled" as you guys say....seemed all the levels were way up on things but it gave the music a warmer feel over their old stuff.

I will not be having any internet for about 10 days now, so Ytse has got some time on his hands. Anyway, peace out. Just more suspense now, it's close...

Round 6: Back in Town

Big Hath: Wes Montgomery – Airegin (7.5/10)

I know of Wes, but haven't listened extensively. Solid track. Not a huge fan of the tune itself, but I can't complain about anything else. Solid playing all throughout.

senecadawg2: Sigur R๓s – Svefn-g-englar (10/10)

Another Sigur R๓s track. Well worth it though. I guess I'll have to fully explore their discography. This convnices me.

Nekov: Subsignal – A New Reliance(8/10)

Not that bad actually. I really enjoyed this. Given that I'm generally a fan of prog, this is a great track. Wouldn't be surprised if they had some mindblowing tracks. This wasn't one of them, but it was rock solid.

Ben_Jamin: Hybrid – Finished Symphony (6/10)

This song is way too long. That's really the only fault I can find with it. It's pretty good otherwise.

Shadow Ninja 2.0: Alexi Murdoch – Through The Glass (5/10)

Definitely not a fan of the vocal style here, but otherwise the song is OK.

kingshmegland:  Umphrey's McGee – Mantis (8.5/10)

Well, the song was quite long – but I liked what I heard throughout. Definitely my style of prog.

Scorpion: Leprous – Forced Entry (8.5/10)

Well, this song forced its way into my colon. I think I've listened to this album once before, or maybe not. Doesn't matter. I heard something I haven't heard before in terms of how it violated my brain, my colon and my urethra at once.

Tyrias: The National – Ada (5/10)

Eh... I didn't really like this, did nothing for me really.

adace: Empyrium – Dead Winter Ways (5/10)

Awfully and painfully slow, but I can see why this would be appealling. It starts out very well, but once the song actually kicks off – it loses me. This time, the harsh vocals didn't really click for me either.

wolfking: Scar Symmetry – Ghost Prototype I (9.5/10)

I have only listened to a little Scar Symmetry, and it was fairly recently. This song was one of those I had listened to, but I had not really remembered it, maybe I wasn't listening with my ears wide open. I should have paid more attention, because this song is a near perfect metal song.

YtseBitsySpider: Magic Elf - Scrambledeggs (9/10)
All kinds of awesome. Can't say anything else about this.

Total Score:
senecadawg2: 50
Scorpion: 47.5
Shadow Ninja 2.0: 45.5
YtseBitsySpider: 45.5
Big Hath : 44.5
kingshmegland: 44.5
_______________________________
wolfking: 42
Ben_Jamin: 41
Tyrias: 40.5
Nekov: 40.5
adace: 36.5

Seneca re-established his lead, and Ytse made the cut due to two awesome submissions. Because of a tie between Big Hath and kingshmegland, I'm deciding to keep them both in the competition.

To the competitors who didn't make the cut: it was fun having you guys around, and I enjoyed some of your submssions.


Allright...

Round 7: I'll keep it open. This time, you're sending two songs each. Please send within 48 hours so we can keep the pace up. I'll send out PMs too.

I saw Scar Symmetry in his last.fm and decided he must not have enjoyed.
They're amazing...the vocals are killer.

glad you liked Magic Elf.

Two songs I assume I can submit two different artists.

Well, started out great but the last 3 rounds weren't really good. I guess Indie just isn't your cup of tea, since those songs I sent are among my favourites in the genre.
On the bright side, I'm away for two weeks in a few days, so it's probably for the best Im out.  ;)
