Sent. I think I screwed this up a little but there are at least some songs in the EP that I'm quite sure you'll enjoy :azn:

I probably would go as far as saying I wouldn't send any of these songs in a regular round. They're not nearly as good separately so I really have to nail the flow score I guess.

I hope you do  :smiley:

So, I've already updated the post (and added it to the OP) concerning how the scoring system will work (might modify it before results, but I highly doubt it). Although one player has to modify its EP, listening starts now  :corn

I sent Massive Bereavement from the Effloresce CD. Apparently, the whole CD was banned. As well as two other bands I sent (At the Drive-In and Shining). But these last two weren't mentioned anywhere, so I couldn't have known.

At the drive-in are sick. I might go see them next week if I have the time. Even if I think Omar and Cedric were both far superior on TMV.

Sounds like you went with quite the heavy EP rich  :tup an option I considered too, though I don't think I'd have enough interesting heavy music.

Elite

Mine is a little heavy, yes, but not really all-out heavy. I have a laid-backish start and ending. The EP is quite similar to the one I sent in Parama's, actually.

you sent an obnoxious beardfish song? :P
They're banned :P

Btw, already listened to everything at least once. Two of these EPs sound promising, the rest are kinda disappointing, but each has at least an amazing song. Let's see how this goes from here :corn

Train of Naught

Interesting.

Mine isn't disappointing so I can't possibly see how someone other than me would think that.

Don't worry, I'll post tidbits and other crap to keep this thread alive :P
:loser:

I'm really not sure, but mine could very well be the disappointing one, not enough harsh vocals (one word, to be exact). Too bad Machine Head was banned, would've closed the fucker off with "RELEASE THE WOLVES!!!!" otherwise :metal

I probably like my EP more than I should, must've listened to it once a day at least since I made it.

Sacul

It's been a wild week, and have barely had the chance to enter DTF, but now everything should go back to normal - expect tidbits this Tuesday, semi-reveal of the tracklists on Wednesday, a more interesting reveal the next day, and RESULTS THIS FRIDAY.

Let the hype begin... Again.

I'm the same with all of my EPs. Not sure if this is related to the fact I've never won a single roulette where the EP round was hosted. :lol

Not too sure about some things in mine.

I think the first three tracks will do well enough, I can't see them being hated.
Track #4 could be hit or miss.
Track #5 was probably a big mistake, I can see this scoring low.
Track #6 is the climax of my EP, according to our host each EP has at least one great song, I think this is mine.
Track #7 I'm not really sure about, I mostly added it because I didn't think the ending to Track #6 was suitable for the closing of the EP. This song is a good closer I think and I had enough room for it, though I'm not really sure what Sacul's reaction will be.

I do believe I will score well regarding flow.

Train of Naught

I don't have any idea how he'll like it, could very well be one of the disappointments.

For some reason I think he'll really like my 2nd song though it could be a big miss aswell.
My 4th song is the climax of the EP, and while not my favorite song of the bunch, the chorus is definitely my favorite moment of the EP. I'm starting to get my doubts though as I realize the chorus sounds very much like something that could be on a Coheed and Cambria song.

The second song on my EP is from a band Sacul gave a low score in his roullete, the third is on of the most epic songs by the same band, I really want you to like them Sacul :p I am ending with three songs almost no one seems to like, but I really love em  :lol

Fluffy Lothario

Well, everyone can sample my EP from the song on the last page.

Mine has no metal. It's all pop and soft rock kind of stuff.

Train of Naught

I'm interested to see how that Movits! song is going to fit in an EP :lol I thought it was a really cool and unusual type of song, but as of now I can't see how you follow up a song like that, I guess we'll see. I will leave it to Sacul to reveal the partial tracklist, I think the only thing I've revealed so far is that there's a Slipknot song in there.

At the end of this I will likely check out the other EP's.

Fluffy Lothario

Without giving too much away, my EP has two "sides", and they're fairly distinct from each other. The Movits! track's at the end of the first half, so the EP completely changes tack after that. Otherwise, you're right, it'd be damn hard to get the next track not to clash horribly.

If there was a track on my EP that I would say is a fairly safe bet to do well, it'd be the last, I guess. But who knows, Sacul could love or totally not love anything on there.

Now seeing how he responds to Slipknot, THAT will be interesting.

Sacul

Tidbits time! Most writeups are one-sentence stuff by now, which I plan on expanding later for results, but these are the most interesting ones.


Yeah, that's a pretty epic chorus.

This song is all over the place if you listen closely, but it just works. Damn it does.

This has a haunting atmosphere, but I'm afraid it isn't as good songwriting-wise.

This... fucking destroys all my biases against this artist. Wow. Probably the best song of the round, and among the best in the roulette.

Well, this is some pretty nice piano indeed!

I struggled to difference this one song and the following, for they feel very similar, and while that wouldn't be a problem if they were awesome, they sadly aren't.

This sounds like some generic alternative metal [...], nothing remarkable imo.

Sadly, your EP goes downhill after it.

While I appreciate the mix of genres and styles here... I just don't dig this, really. I mean, while it's enjoyable, I find no strong connection between this and me.

Just... no. I don't dig [genre] at all, and this is no exception. The only bits I enjoy are the last ones, for they are acoustic and atmospheric, but nothing special in the end.
