6.5 is a decent score :lol I think I got 8.5 for same song in Parama's roulette (or Shadow Ninja's?) for opener so I thought why not try to send it again. Should've gone with other song I'll probably send in one of the future rounds anyway. Whatever...
Sent some crazy shit for round 2 :tup
And I knew exactly what to do. But in a much more real sense, I had no idea what to do. - Michael Scott

 Yeah, I thought mine was kind of standard sounding. Oh well. I will send something better for the next round.

 Stadler said they saw the Genesis track that I love. Good choice!

My song is actually part of the soundtrack to a half-life mod, but I think it works pretty well out of context :P

What's your take on dark, creepy music?

Have a feeling I may need to resend though which would suck.

Checked out all the competition now. As predicted I liked Xerath and The Ocean. Liked The Ocean more and can see why it won the round. As Mike said, I like the sound of the concept of the album and will be checking that out soon.

I quite liked the track by The Sword too. Heard them way back on one of the Guitar Hero games and liked them, they seem in the vein of bands like Wolfmother and Priestess. I'll get around to them one day, really like the cover art to the album too.

Listened to some Shining before and this song was anything but predictable, has me interested but may take a while to get around to it.

The rest was cool but nothing else I will necessarily check out, already have that Angra album and may get some more in the future.

I still haven't gotten around to that shining album, mostly because the album as a whole is like a bit much for me iirc

I like to send The Black Mages in roulettes when I think the host will dig the style so :tup for that, but you've got some balls sending The Skies Above. :lol That vocalist is definitely an acquired taste, if acquired at all.

If nothing else I want to be remembered for having balls  :biggrin:



I've honestly never had a problem with the vocals in The Skies Above. I'm one of those people whose ear generally focuses on the guitar and drums. If I'd sent The Black Mages in an open round I wouldn't have sent that song (maybe Dancing Mad instead but then that could be considered a bit of a gamble too). Maybe I should have thought about it a bit more  :loser:

Also, Mike didn't like the transition between the piano into and the guitar kicking in, I love that bit. I love the pause and am anticipating the moment I can air guitar along  :lol
