You need to be more aggressive in getting songs from people  :lol

Meh. It's the final round, so now I finally have an excuse to be lazy. :P

What are the odds that I get two submissions from the same artist in the same round with the two songs being back-to-back on the same album? :lol

if someone sent the song after the one i sent on that album, they probably deserve to outrank me, but maybe not

that's a good tease because I am fairly certain I retained the top spot but maybe not

if someone submitted the same band as me it was probably splent

Oh wow, I can actually still win this. Especially since there's double scoring.

Alright, I won't keep you guys waiting any longer. At long last, it's time for the FINAL RESULTS!

Sorry this roulette has dragged on for so long; my life recently has been busier than it has ever been before, and between all of my responsibilities, it was difficult for me to find the energy to give this roulette the time and attention it should have gotten.

But enough of that, let's get onto the results for the final round. Remember, the points awarded for each ranking are higher than usual, and may come with a fraction of a point to prevent there from being any ties in the final ranking!

Here we go!



---FINAL ROUND RESULTS---

1st Place: Elite
Anciients - Ibex Eye


This song has a pretty awesome blend of metal styles that sounds great and strikes a really good balance between heavy and melodic. Itís got great riffs, some enjoyable vocals (both clean and harsh), and the song does a great job with transitioning from one awesome section to the next without losing any momentum. My one complaint is that the finale is a bit weak; thereís a huge buildup to it and the payoff is a bit underwhelming, especially since it just fades out without an actual ending. Other than that, this song was excellent.

2nd Place: Parama
Thank You Scientist - Caverns


I got two songs from this band this round, and I must say, Iím really digging their sound. Itís a really cool fusion of prog and jazz thatís pulled off in a way that Iíve never quite heard before, and the use of horns is really fantastic. Itís not easy to fit them in with the regular line-up of rock instruments and still have them be just as prominent, but they somehow managed to pull it off, and they really add a lot to the song. The main riff is really awesome, the chorus is powerful and the song as a whole has a great amount of energy. It has a decent amount of variety too, throwing in some calmer verses and a more metal-oriented section about two thirds in. Great stuff.

3rd Place: splent
Thank You Scientist - Mr. Invisible


Aaaand hereís the very next track from the same album as the above submission. :lol My first impression of this song was actually a bit better than Caverns; I really liked how funky and groovy it was in comparison. Like Caverns, it also has some great melodies and a really powerful chorus. With repeated listens, however, I found myself gravitating a bit more towards the previous song. This one is a bit more simple and doesnít have as much variety, so it started to get a little bit state after a while, especially because itís a bit longer than it needs to be, in my opinion. Itís still a great track though, and I can definitely see why some people would prefer this one. Between these two songs, Iíve definitely heard enough to make me want to check these guys out more in the future.

4th Place: Scorpion
Indukti - Sansara


Instrumentals usually donít win me over as easily as other songs, but this one was definitely interesting enough for that not to be an issue. Itís got some unusual instrumentation that grabs your attention, and it all comes together very well to create a very intense sound that I really enjoyed. Things mellow out towards the end as the song transitions into a very mellow and soothing extended outro that ends the song on a really nice note. A great example on how to do instrumentals well.

5th Place: Train of Naught
Harakiri For The Sky - Viaticum


This one was definitely a grower, and even with repeated listens, I can say that this songís biggest problem is that itís not very memorable. There arenít too many moments that stick out, and if youíre not paying attention, the song as a whole kind of blends together. Iím also not really a fan of the vocals. That aside, this song has some great guitar work that creates a pretty strong atmosphere, and the song keeps getting better the further along it gets. The last few minutes in particular are really fantastic, and itís largely thanks to them that I ended up generally liking this song in the end.

6th Place: Evermind
Arstidir - Sidasta Kvedjan


This song is pretty, but thereís not really much else to say about it. Itís incredibly quiet and soothing, and itís got some nice string work. That said, I think itís a bit too laid-back; some light drums or some more variety composition-wise would have definitely taken this song to the next level. Iím all for mellow, minimalistic music if the atmosphere is strong enough, but this song didnít quite reach that point for me, in my opinion.

7th Place: LordCost
Cardiacs - Fiery Gun Hand


This song is very wacky-sounding, perhaps a bit too much so for my taste. I can definitely appreciate songs that are both experimental and accessible, and yes, this song is very experimental while still being quite catchy. I like that, but the sound just isnít something that resonates with my tastes too well.

8th Place: Tomislav95
Paradise Lost - An Eternity Of Lies


Including this, Iíve gotten three songs from this band in my roulettes, and this one was probably the weakest, unfortunately. Itís not as catchy as The Enemy, and it doesnít have the power or epic-sounding atmosphere that The Glorious End has. Even without comparing this song to those two, it didnít do all that much for me. The melodies and riffs are memorable, but that doesnít mean theyíre particularly good. The song also relies on them pretty heavily and repeats them a lot without really changing them, and the track is pretty monotonous as a result. I definitely enjoy some doom metal, but I guess you just werenít that lucky with that subgenre this roulette. :lol


Okay, and with that, let's see how you all did!
