Well, The Rite of Spring (I won't be surprised if a few people who know the piece in this thread go "What the fuck, Lucien") is my favorite piece of music, so I'll have to think about this one  :P

I'll be checking out all of these epics when I get a chance. I've only heard a couple of them.

Oh and congrats  Lonestar. It's safe to rest your starters now.

Nah, I think I'll let MadBum finish.....









Ok, gotta think about this one. My favorite song is from a band already sent, and I'd like to keep sending you new stuff. Either way, I'll send something tomorrow morning.


Edt- sent

Fuck yeah Anesthetize is the shit. Also, you'd do the right thing buying The Odissey, that's one heck of a record.

I expected the last place, but at least The Tea Club had some visibility here  :-\ (their 2012 album is really high on Progarchives despite being an unknown band).
Sent for the last round!

I could have swore I sent something.  Maybe you missed in in your PM's, I've honestly done that myself.  The funny thing is I think I sent "The Great Escape" as well...or at least strongly considered it.

No matter, people keep resending PT and other bands to you, so (some of) the players keep failing the host.  He's not going to discover new bands if you keep sending the same ones in.  I haven't seen so many Mizzl's since Mizzl was here.

Also sent.

I don't agree your statement. If the host is enjoying the song, the goal is reached IMO.

Well, the goal of this is to discover new music, thus although sending the same artists several times might give him an idea of their variety, I'd prefer to send new bands, so he can expand his musical tastes.

I agree with Doc and Sacul. I once, unknowingly, resent a band that had done well in a previous round and won. I didn't feel bad about it since I hadn't caught the error, but it felt like a really lame way to win the round.

ETA: obviously that doesn't really apply if the band has undergone a big lineup change and has a completely new sound and songwriting process.

I have made a point to send different bands as well, but also try and suggest other songs from bands I've already sent that may have not fit the theme but that I felt should be heard.

I see what you're saying DTVT and I like the idea of a different band every time, but with 8 rounds and 11 contestants, that's 88 bands. If every now and then another song from the same band is sent my way and is great, I won't mind at all.

And I looked up and down my PMs several times and rechecked the names several times to make sure I ddin't miss it and it was not there.

While we wait for this round/roulette to end, I will post a couple different lists pertaining to this round throughout the week, starting with:

Top 5 bands discovered from this roulette:
1. Circus Maximus (Architect of Fortune started this one and immediately made me love this band. Thanks Seneca for sending this!)
2. Porcupine Tree (Blackest Eyes and Anesthetize are masterful songs, and I've just recently picked up In Absentia and it's great.)
3. Haken (I knew of them but didn't really listen to them. These guys are awesome!)
4. Destiny Potato (Dat Djent tho)
5. Symphony X (Also knew of them but never listened to them. Iconoclast is a killer album)

Thank you ALL for participating. I appreciate your efforts to send me great music every week, and for putting up with my annoyingly awful timing. I've discovered some incredible music through you guys. It's truly incredible how much music is out there, and how much of it is amazing. Music is the most important part of my life, so finding new material that makes me feel a wide range of emotions is absolutely wonderful, and a lot of songs sent my way did just that. Thank you all so much, and I hope your 2015 is going well so far. Rock on dudes  :metal

Add another notch to my roulette bedpost... :RJ:


Fun game bud, and don't trip about the pace, I have yet to see someone do a well scheduled and ran roulette. Life always gets in the way somewhere.
