Sorry for the delay, but nonetheless: Round Two Results

This was a really great round. I liked every song sent my way at least a little.

#11: Rhapsody in Blue-George Gershwin; Lucien
Another peculiar choice. Lol I liked the piano solo in the middle, but this wasn't really what I was looking for, hence its placement. Still good though!

#10: Interstellar-Amplifier; LordCost
It was pretty hard ranking them from here till the 5th spot cuz I really like all of them. This one has a great groove throughout. It felt a little repetitive at times, but I enjoyed it overall.

#9 Flaming Row- Rage of Despair; Scorpion
This one has a great heavy groove to it. Great power and energy in this song. It sounds like there's a male and female vocalist in the band? I might be wrong but that's what I hear. If it's just a female vocalist and she does the screaming then that's double awesome lol. 

#8: Thunder Kiss '65- White Zombie; DR. DTVT
Well, you're right about the groove being awesome. Thick groove that flows throughout the entire song. Real nice flow to the song. The vocals are eh, but I still enjoyed it.

#7: Addict- Destiny Potato; mikemanjioy
I Mean that's just an awesome band name. Lol this is one of 2 Destiny Potato songs I received this round. I really like their sound and this song has got an awesome flow to it. Vocals are great, riffs are great, djent is djenty. I hear a strong Periphery influence in this one. Great choice.

#6: Soft Bomb Salad-I Mother Earth; kingschmegland
I love the flow to this song. It's such a great flow and the guitar that kicks in around 3:30 is really groovy.

#5: In Memoriam- Haken; Sacul
I remember seeing The Mountain on JP's, JR's, MP's and JLB's top 10 lists of last year so I checked out a few songs. I LOVED Pareidoilla and liked Cockroach King. This is another really great song off that album that I hadn't listened to before this round. Think I'm gonna have to buy this album, cuz these guys are awesome.

#4: Love Song-Destiny Potato; Tom Bombadil
The better of the 2 DP songs of this round, this one has an awesome riff and flow. The part around 3:55 is amazing. I'm gonna have to check this band out too. They sound really promising.

#3: No Way Out-Thoughts Factory; lonestar
The next 3 are super close in ratings. This one has an AWESOME opening riff and it's just an overall awesome song. HUGE DT influence. The keyboard solo sounds like one of JR's patches. Great choice.

#2: The Morning Light-Voyager; senecadawg2
The beginning....Is that....is that The TERMINATOR?? Lol it has the exact same pattern as the Terminator theme. The main riff is killer. Love the chorus in this song and the overall feel of the song. Really powerful and uplifting.

#1: Halo-Machine Head; Destiny of Chaos
Nailed it. This song is fucking awesome. Heavy, groovy, powerful. Exactly what I was looking for.  The minute long buildup into the main in the beginning is worth the payoff. Vocals kind of remind me of a heavier Adrenaline Mob. The chorus is really awesome and the breakdown a little after the middle of the song is killer. Excellent pick.

Roulette Standings thus far:

1. senecadawg2-21
2. Destiny of Chaos-20
3. lonestar- 19
4. Tom Bombadil-16
5. Sacul-14
6. kingschmegland-12
7. mikemangioy-10
8. Scorpion/ DR. DTVT-7
10. Lucien/LordCost-3



Round Three: THE JUGGERNAUT
Title says it all. Send me the heaviest shit you got. My favorite heavy songs are The Glass Prison, Bridges in the Sky, As I Am, Caught In A Web, Lie, and The Enemy Inside (DT), Zyglrox, The Walk, and MAKE TOTAL DESTROY (Periphery), (sic), Eyeless and Sarcastrophe (Slipknot, among countless others from Metallica and other bands from my banned list.  I was a metal fan before I was a prog fan, so I like me some heavy. I want songs with such balls they blow my dick off. MAKE IT HAPPEN. You have until Tuesday next week.

You're a horrible person for rating Rage of Despair so low.  There are actually 7 vocalists in that song (4 male, 3 female) if I recall correctly.

And, I'm just razzin ya btw.  I don't truly know if you're a horrible person or not.  You're at DTF, so I'll err on the side of "not"
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

Seeing that you listed "Bridges In The Sky" as heavy, I'm afraid if I sent you the heaviest thing I have you would be crushed by its gravity and weight.

Alright Roulette standing have (finally) been posted. senecea, lonestar, and Destiny of Chaos are the top 3 as of now, but it's super early. Everyone's been sending great music thus far.

Re: LaughingPlace56's Song Roulette v. Round Three Results Up; Round Four begun
« Reply #89 on: November 24, 2014, 08:15:23 PM »
Alright. Round 3 results:

#11: Dmitri Shostakovich Symphony No 5 in D minor, Op. 47 IV.Allegro non troppo; Lucien
Dude, I don't know if you're being sincere with these picks or not but you're gonna lose if you keep sending them.

#10:Meshuggah - Straws Pulled at Random; Tom Bombadil
It's definitely heavy, but I'm not a huge fan of Meshuggah honestly. Not a whole lot of fun to listen to.

#9: Nevermore- Born; Scorpion
Love the band name but not the song xD just like Straws Pulled At Random, I like it and al, but it's nothing too special for me. Solid heaviness but overall just meh.

#8: Gojira- Toxic Garbage Island; mikemangioy
Solid. Heavy and fun to listen to.

#7: Amorphis - Silver Bride; Dr. DTVT
Not really all that heavy, but i really enjoyed this song.

#6: Devin Townsend - Universe in a Ball; Sacul
I'm really liking what I'm hearing of Devin Townsend. He's pretty great musician. This was a great song and real fun to listen to. The main riff is SICK.

#5: Pain Of Salvation - Beyond The Pale; senecadawg2
I really liked the sound of this song. it flowed fairly well and I liked the riffing in the second half of the song.

#4: Ancestors - Whispers; kingschmegland
As you said, very Pink Floyd-esque. Really enjoyed it. Makes me wonder how PF would sound if they made a song like this xD great choice.

#3: The Project Hate MCMXCIX - The Bleeding Eyes of a Breeding Whore; Destiny of Chaos
This song is a lot of fun. Love the dynamics of the vocalists and the harsher vocals are awesome. Real heavy, real groovin. Awesome pick.

#2: Leprous - Forced Entry; LordCost
Very Haken like. Loved it. Reminded me a lot of Paredoilla and Cockroach King. Decently heavy. I really enjoy this style of progressive metal. Heavy, but more laid back and more focused on flow than heaviness.

#1: Destrage "Destroy Create Transform Sublimate" ; lonestar
Nailed it. This song is fucking AWESOME. The vocals are a little iffy sometimes but the instrumentation is just fucking epic. The verses remind me of Been Caught Stealing by Jane's Addiction a little bit. The drumming is some Matt Halphern (Periphery) level shit. Awesome choice.

Roulette Standings So Far:
1. lonestar- 30
2. Destiny of Chaos-29
3. senecadawg2-28
4. Sacul/kingschmegland-20
6. Tom Bombadil-18
7. mikemangioy-14
8. LordCost/DR. DTVT-12
10. Scorpion-10
11. Lucien-4


Round Four: Drumavarium

Send me a song with a KILLER drum part. I am a drummer myself and particularly love drummers that can follow the pattern of the other instruments while accenting the riffs perfectly and make it super interesting. My favorite drummers (in no order) are Marco Minnemann, MM, MP, Matt Halphern, Justin Beiber, and John Bonham. My favorite drum tracks include Dance of Eternity, The Great Debate, Blind Faith, Outcry, Illumination Theory, Under A Glass Moon (Score version), MAKE TOTAL DESTROY, Ragnarok, The Walk, Zyglrox, basically anything Marco Minnemann, and Moby Dick. Let's see what we can get!

I'm completely sincere but you obviously really don't like classical music. The piece I sent you is AWESOME, and I've got 9.5/10 with that piece before.

And I'm REALLY bad at finding good drum parts in songs so we'll see if I get anywhere instead of #11 this time  :lol

I've heard (and love) Beyond the Pale, and I found it to be quite the peculiar choice in a round where the judge was asking for "The heaviest shit you got".

Yeah  :lol definitely not the most appropriate for the theme. No way was I going to send the heaviest song I have though, that almost certainly wouldn't have gone over well. I was just trying to find a some sort of balance between heaviness and accessibility. Also, in terms of tone and lyrical content, I think Beyond the Pale is veeerrry heavy.

No argument. The song is heavy with meaning, especially within the context of the album's concept.
