I have Chads bonus, hopefully I will update today or tommorow.

With the scores so close and the bonus/wild cards going, I foresee a lot of twists and turns for the last four rounds.

Boom!  I'm still stunned this band was available.  Got a feeling I'm gonna get a few :getoffmylawn: + :facepalm: from my competitors - especially Kade.

Pretty sure I know who it is.

Non intentional, but well played by me.  If I'm right about what I think Chad sent, I almost sent that band last night, but changed my mind at the last minute, took a different tactic.

Lowdz

Sent. After some success with the metal it's back to something a bit more melodic rock.

Round 5 update, Chad's bonus

Pretty Maids- Pandemonium:  I am very familiar with Pretty Maid's first three albums and enjoy them all.  But I don't think I've heard anything from them post Jump the Gun (1990).  The sound is still the same and still great pure heavy metal.  Really enjoying this one and it was a smart selection on your part for an upgrade in score.  8.5

Yes, I certainly do.  Come one it's 7am here and I've been up since 4........... :facepalm:

Anyway, forget that band I emailed you, they're mine next round if no one steals them this round.  ;D

I believe I intercepted some Canadian ..um..intelligence and I'm going to capture some Japanese Bonus Points!

I sent for some Japanese Bonus Points too, but I think I'll get a 6/10 instead. You see, it's really difficult to judge which songs were getting enough radio play and chart success in 80s if you were born in 1993. :lol

But at least I won't have any trouble in Spencer's 60s-70s round if I get to that one. So I guess as far as youngsters go, I'm not that hopeless. :lol
wait wtf we're about the same age??? how

If I send them would I get 12 points?



Looks like a combination of Babymetal, Guns n Roses and Culture Club.

ooohhh... Jay, you're coming up on 7000 posts!  Make it a good one.

Ok, I have a challenge to lay down to my fellow competitors for a round 8 theme - A Taste of Italy.  We've all (most?) got some quality and deep list of Italian (power) Metal bands.  I think we need to bless Jay with the glory of all that is Italy.

I think this is the route I'm taking... anyone want to join me?

Italian power metal? Sorry Chad, I think I'll pass. :lol

I'm getting some bad score this round though, so maybe I'll bite. Not sure yet. Let me see the results.

Might be a set up by Chad, he can be tricky.

Indeed, but no... I'm above board here.  I've been listening to Italians all day in preparation.

Got some time right now, so Round 7 results!!  Great round overall!


Wolf:

Winger- Seventeen:  Of course this stupid song is a bonus song!  This is the song that has consumed us at DTF for how long?  I just can't believe it took till round 7 for someone to send it, I figured it was a gimme for somebody early on.  I was just kind of hoping that Tim would have sent it; this would have been the ultimate irony.  11

TAC: 

Mcauley Schenker- Anytime:  Another TAC classic!!  I am a big fan of MSG, especially the first two albums.  In regards to Mcauley Schenker, I've heard "Save Yourself" and this one before, and really liked them, but never looked into them any further because the Save Yourself album seemed so hard to find.  I really should look into this closer because this ballad is exactly the reason I have a shoe box of bics.  Really the definition of an 80s power ballad and awesome stuff.  And Tim, before your blood pressure goes through the roof, yes its true.  You are getting a perfect score, but still lost to Winger.  10

Splent:

Lita Ford- Kiss Me Deadly:  For fucks sake Spencer!  This is getting weird and I'm starting to think that Splent is actually Criss Angel.  11

Hath:

Black Tora- Fuel My Hunger:  Awesome choice with this one, this is exactly what I would look for in a newer metal band.  Classic sounding all the way, maybe a heavier version of Y&T mixed with Dokken.  Great stuff.  9.5

Paul:

Talisman- Mysterious:  This is another band that has been on my radar for years, the main reason being that Jeff Scott Soto is the lead singer.  I've never heard anything from him that I didn't like and this is right up my alley too.  Melodic metal/rock 101 right here and another great pick from Paul.  What albums would you recommend from them?  9

Chad:

Star One- Master of Darkness:  A Star Wars heavy metal song!  I've noticed Chad pimping this band a few times and it sounded quite interesting.  Well, it is.  And to have Sir Russell Allen on vocals on top of it!  If Russell was singing me the breakfast menu at McDonalds I would be rocking out!  Very very cool song!  9.5

Fluff:

Stooges- Fun House:  Just like Janis Joplin, I respect what the Stooges have done musically, but there is a zero percent chance I could ever get into them.  Not a bad song though, just not my thing.  6

Brent:

Heavens Gate- Livin in Hysteria:  Brent is a roulette master and he continues to be very consistent in sending me songs that he knows I will like.  Another old school metal band that I've never heard of, but is totally my thing.  Just pure pedal to the metal and is a band I will have to look into further, just like Leige Lord and Artch.  9.5

Evermind:

Marillion- Sugar Spice:  I've seen this band around DTF many times and I have checked out some of their stuff.  But the material came across to me sounding a bit like Peter Gabriel era Genesis.  And I can't say that I enjoy the trippy stuff too much.  But I will say that this song specifically is much better that what I remember sampling and I actually dug it quite a bit.  But still not enough to look into the band much more further.  7


Crow

and it all comes full circle, with a winger submission getting top score
