And to be fair, he did say it was going to hurt him more than it hurt you.
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

True, but it was a good whipping :zydar:

Before we get to the write-ups I just want to say that it's really hard for me to give these great songs 0 points, I hope you don't put too much weight into the score, I really have enjoyed all the songs sent to me thus far. I'm also starting to realize why people have themes, it's really hard to compare two songs that are so different! But enough whining from me, let's get to the results!


senecadawg2 vs. Scorpion

senecadawg2: Agalloch - In the Shadow of our Pale Companion
Where to start with this song? It was definitely a grower for me. At first I wasn't really sure what to make of it, but now I think it's all kinds of awesome. The main selling point of this song for me is probably the atmosphere of it, it just absorbs me and never lets go. The growls are really cool in that  some of them are pretty much whispered, never really heard that before. I also really love how the instrumental sections are handled. Not technical at all, just atmospherical and full of feeling. The lyrics are really cool but if there's some deeper meaning here I'll need some enlightening! All in all, fantastic song.

Scorpion: Flaming Row - Rage of Despair
So energy, powah! Seriously, if theres one thing this song is it's energetic. I always feel pumped up after listening to this, it's probably amazing for a workout. Overall I really like the song and I really can't wait to hear the rest of the album (I assume it's a concept album?). By far my favorite part of the song is the chorus, that thing is going to be stuck in my head for a while, not that I'm complaining though!

Winner: senecadawg2


Evermind vs. MoraWintersoul

Evermind: IQ - The Road of Bones
This song has some great moments, but in my opinion it takes too long to get it started. It feels to me like you have this long buildup and then once you hit the climax the song is just over way too soon. Basically I would have wanted less of the first 6 minutes and more of the last 2 (those two minutes are awesome though). That's not to say that the first 6 minutes are bad, they're definitely not, but standards are very high in this roulette so far. Wow, this write-up sounded so negative, I still really enjoyed the song just so you know!

MoraWintersoul: Nightingale - Revival
Here is another chorus that's gonna stick in my mind for a while. This song rocks, plain and simple. I can definitely picture myself singing along to this at max volume in the car. I like the vocals too, always refreshing to hear prog metal vocalists who aren't all about hitting the high notes, these are just pleasant to listen to (and easier to sing along to :P). Great song, not too complicated, just plain good!

Winner: MoraWintersoul


Tom Bombadil vs. Buddyhunter1

Tom Bombadil: Redemption - Love Kills Us All / Life in One Day
This song is great, it has all I want from a prog mini-epic. The opening verses sets the mood perfectly, the instrumental section kicks ass and the final half is just awesome. I especially like the verses in the final half (”Seems so strange to think of...”), something about them tickles me just right! I don't have too much else to add to this, awesome song!

Buddyhunter1: Oceansize - Trail of Fire
I really didn't care for this song when I first started listening to it but it has grown a lot since then. My favorite part of it is probably the opening 3 minutes, I just love the rhythm and everything else about it. Damn, listening to it now it seems even better than before, given a few more listens it might have overtaken the opponent but right now I feel like it's lacking just a tiny bit to reach that level.

Winner: Tom Bombadil

Best song of the round: senecadawg2

Well, you can't always win with IQ, you know!

Time to send something not really predictable, I guess...

Please don't feel like you've sent me bad songs. Especially that Avantasia song is totally awesome and I enjoy the IQ song as well, it just didn't really connect with me if you know what I'm saying. I'm totally up for unpredictable, those are often the best ones!¨

Edit: maybe I'm being too defensive, I just wish all the songs could win. :lol

That's what said. Not sure why you mean by 'dirty', but I'm sure it won't be any dirtier than Anathema and Agalloch  :D

I guess I'll just say that Buddyhunter tried to send me Untitled VIII by Sigur Ros. Had I not already heard ( ) that might have been a winning play. I'm now waiting for him to send a replacement.

No worries. I should have sent Agalloch as well. Oh well. Most people already know them, so they rarely enter my thoughts during roulettes, to be honest.

I'm giving Mora 24 hours to submit her song, if she doesn't I'll post the results anyway with an automatic loss for her.
