I can't submit until Friday or Saturday.  Plan to do more than skim thru by he hair of my chinny chin chin though.

Are you planning to take the time to chose something that will save your ass?  ;)

Possibly.  Or I just might send something Symphony-Xesque, and go down in a blaze of glory!

Dr. DTVT - Knifeworld - Send him seaworthy

The overall feeling of the song is quite somber and uncomfortable for the first half. There are some sections with nice guitar melodies and the vocals are quite alright but the use of winds brings the song down every time. The second half is better especially during the instrumental section.

Score: 5

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Adace - The contortionist - Language I: Intuition

The intro to this song is just perfect, that guitar melody drives me crazy and luckily for me it didnít stop there. When the rest of the band joins everything gets all over the place yet still very driven by that same melody. I normally canít stand growls but here they have a good contrast against the clearer voice. Theresí some jazz in here, metal, prog rock and everything is very well connected.

Score: 9

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lonestar - Persona Grata - Ace

The intro is kinda weird, it has a strange vibe to it not very pleasing. After that it gets quite nice. The guitar melodies are very attracting, the vocals with all the changes are very solid and the song itself varies a lot, sometimes the transitions donít feel right but other they fit just right.

Score: 6

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tyrias - Guro von germeten - A tiger and a daffodil

Yeah, just no. Circus music is really not my thing at all except when used correctly within another musical genre.

Score: 2

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FreezingPoint - Kip Winger - Endless circles

The piano intro is just beautiful and the rest of the song is as well. I like when everything in a song fits just right and there are little arrangements here and there that bring a sudden breath of life. I felt very relaxed and joyful listening to this tune.

Score: 8

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jingle.boy - Kevin Gilbert - Song for a dead friend

Donít you ever pull this on me again, OK? I was working the first time I gave this a listen and had to hold it together so people in the office wouldnít ask if there was something wrong.

Score: 8

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Adace   25
Freezingpoint   21
Lonestar   20
Dr. DTVT   19
Jingle.boy   19
Tyrias   14

Thanks for participating Tyrias. The rest of you guys keep em coming hard, that last place seems a bit packed right now  ;)

Well, I bought myself a little buffer, but think it's time to flame out.

They were submitted to the zine a long time ago man, gave then a 4.5 out of 5. Just cause you've sent a band doesn't give you proprietary rights to them. More pissed I can't send them in your roulette  :lol

I'm quite certain he was referring to me.  He used that Gilbert song in my first roulette, and I've seen him use it other times as well.

Adace - If these trees could talk - Thirty-six silos

Nice post rock song, very true to the genre. The guitar work is quite good with some great melodies. The transition between peace and intensity is so well done.

Score: 8

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dr. DTVT - Ice Age - Perpetual child

Man this song is really good. I donít think I have listened to anything like this recently or maybe ever. It has a great combination of classic prog and metal and is quite different from the average prog metal band. Not sure if itís the keys or the guitar sound but I simply loved it.


Score: 8

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


jingle.boy - Star one - Cassandra Complex

Nice cheating again. Out of all the great vocalists the one that gets me more is Dan Swano, I fucking love how the guys sings. The song overall is amazing with lots of similarities with Ayreon, great keyboards and awesome guitar lines

Score: 9

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Lonestar - Mandroid Echostar - Ancient arrows

Another fun song. I like the guitar work throughout the whole song the most. The singers voice was a bit annoying to be honest and the ending threw me off a little bit but other than that everything pretty much falls into place.

Score: 7

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Freezingpoint - Franz Liszt - Les preludes

Some nice passages here and there but as with most classical music I liked it a lot during the first listen but then it got less interesting with each new listen. Nothing wrong with the song itís just how I feel about this genre as a whole.

Score: 5

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Adace   33
Jingle.boy   28
Lonestar   27
Dr. DTVT   27
Freezingpoint   26

Only 4 competitors remain and to be honest I'm really surprised some of you guys got this far. Let's see who can keep it up and who can't. Thanks for joining Freezingpoint  :tup
