Ice Age is awesome by the way... that would've been another 'cheat' band for me to use.  Josh Pincus sound so much like Dennis DeYoung it's uncanny.

What to send, what to send.  The 'Costanza' approach seems to be working.

Glam Metal it is.   :lol

Only missing the doctor and given how he's not taking care of his roulette I assume he's been very busy.

Lonestar - Shineback - Rise up forgotten, return destroyed

There are so many great things about this song that I donít even know where to start. Everything is perfectly in place, the melodies are great, the vocals are great and that instrumental with a bit of a jazzy vibe is awesome. It even has a good a cappella section.

Score: 9

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


jingle.boy - Powerworld - East comes to west

Ah, Macís voice is so awesome. The song overall is nice and flows quite write from each section to another and I like each section separate as well as the whole thing. It does fail to get me all pumped up but itís still very enjoyable.

Score: 6

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


Adace - Skyharbor - Evolution

Weird song but quite interesting. Lots of melodies and musical landscapes and oddly enough everything falls in place despite the differences. The vocals are a bit weak for me mostly because of the singerīs voice.

Score: 7

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


Dr. DTVT - Jolly - Joy

Well, Iím not getting the happy part of the song :P The piano melody is really nice but the rest is a bit more somber really, not dark, not at all but still I would hardly call this an uplifting song. Itís a bit samey all throughout and not very interesting

Score: 5

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

Adace   40
Lonestar   36
Jingle.boy   34
Dr. DTVT   32

Only 3 to go and everything seems to be sentenced already for someone... Thanks for playing Doc, you gave me some awesome bands to look into.

Fuck that man, let's duke it out in the finals. I got my album picked already, and I'll even tell  you what it is so you can really start sweating bullets.



As far as the Shineback album goes, it was very close to being my AOTY last year, and that tune was easily my song of the year. Whole thing streams on Bandcamp, well worth the time.

I don't count my chickens before they hatch.  One round at a time.  Plus, I'm a realist... Adace would have to score 4 or under for me to mathematically get ahead of him.

Lonestar - Silent Memorial - The Darkest Hour

I really liked the intro to the song and the use of keyboards throughout the whole song however the rest is pretty much standard prog metal and not very interesting.

Score: 6

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


Jingle.boy - Magnus Karlssonís Freefall - Not my savior

Read above minus the intro and keyboard part. You would have been better off sending Alpha Rev.

Score: 5

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


Adace - Kamelot - Falling like the farenheit

By far your worst submission. Pretty boring song overall where the only thing I can point out as good are the female vocals and thatís like 10 seconds of the song at most? I didnít dislike the song but I didnít enjoy it either

Score: 4

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

Adace   44
Lonestar   42
Jingle.boy   39

I wasn't expecting you to reach this far Chad so congrats on that, you sent some really good stuff this time around.

OK guys, this is the last round. Those points you see there don't matter any more, it's a one on one, mano a mano. You both send me an album and the best one will take this roulette home. In case you can't find it on grooveshark or youtube send me a message and we'll figure it out.

On the first part, you're probably right.  Should've kept cheating, and sent with my head... alas, I went with my heart.  On the second, neither was I, so I exit with my head held high. 

You really are an enigma when it comes to the Prog Metal genre.  These were three awesome songs.  All 8s and 9s in my books.

Lonestar - Karnya - Coveriní Thoughts

My first thought when I pressed play was ďwell, Iíll have to sit through an hour of standard prog metalĒ but as we all know people shouldnít judge a book by itís cover. After that initial song the album starts slowly drifting into a cleaner and more prog sound and by the end itís plain awesome. The transformation is quite stunning to be honest, first because I didnít expect it and second because it was so smooth that by the end of the album I hardly remembered that initial dislike I had. As you said in your message, this band is something else.

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


Adace - Myrath - Tales of the Sands

I started listening to this and it felt a bit familiar so I looked at my past roulettes and it turns out someone had sent this band to me before and at that time I thought it was just OK. This time though I found it to be quite interesting and enjoyable than that time, maybe this works better as an album than individual songs for me, not sure really. Point is, I liked this, some very powerful stuff mixed with those nice ďarabĒ vibes and lots of prog. Iím hooked.


I thought about giving scores but it was pretty close. You both did a great job throughout but the rules say I can have only 1 winner so.....




Congrats Lonestar!

It was a hard to chose a winner here but at the end of the day I feel more inclined to listening to that Karnya album a bit more that the Myrath one.
There's a prize for you if you keep going down  :tup

Thanks everyone who participated. I have tons of new music to research.
