Welcome

Well here it is, the long awaited second roulette.  Now after doing my first roulette, I found the whole thing very enjoyable, and found quite a few bands that I play regularly and albums that I have found thanks to it.  I think it's time for another one, and the demand from some people has been high.  Now at 33 years old, my tastes haven't changed in 20 years, and if there was one thing I learnt from the roulette is exactly that.  I have a metal heart through and through.  Over the years I've tried many different styles and genres and my collection and bands I like do boast that, but I keep coming back to the heavy stuff.

This roulette is open to whatever you choose to send, but I'm saying straight up, it's good classic, solid metal I'm really looking for.  What I check out these days is not too much to be honest and I've become fussier and fussier.  I'll flick something after a short listen and won't look back.  SO over the last few years, I've become lazy and generally haven't had the motivation to look for new stuff.  I lost a little bit of love for the thirst to discover new music and I have just been humming along.  That's where this comes in, cause I'm getting that motivation back.  Work has been busting my balls for quite a while now and I need some new music now for sure.  So many of you guys see bands that you post in the 'what are you listening to thread' that I wouldn't have a clue who they are, so even though my banned list is big, I'm sure you'll find stuff I don't know.

This is going to be a straight up, no bullshit, simple roulette, with no tricks or anything of the kind.  I must say, due to my busy work schedule, even though I knew this was coming, I haven't prepared a fucking thing.  But that won't stop me.  It's going to be simple 8 rounds, scores out of 10, but if I feel I want to add any curveballs in along the way, I will.

Here's the link from my last roulette;

https://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=46782.0

The banned list I will have to go back through, but it pretty much stands.  I'll try and add any glaring omissions but should be pretty on point.

Here's one important thing to note;

In the year themed rounds, just because a band is on my banned list, doesn't mean an album from that artist from the year is banned if it's not on the list of albums.  A lot of bands I've lost track of that I know have released new stuff, I just never got around to checking it out.

Rounds

Simple;

Round 1 - Open
Round 2 - 2015 albums
Round 3 - Open
Round 4 - 2016 albums
Round 5 - Open
Round 6 - 2017 albums
Round 7 - Open
Round 8 - 2018 albums
Round 9 - Open - Blow your load

Now, I encourage newer stuff throughout the open rounds too.  I'm not really in the mood for older stuff, I want newer, heavier, powerful sounding stuff that rocks.  Saying that, the rounds are open, so still, anything goes, you might just surprise me.  And any genre is still allowed, just be warned it may hurt you.

Scores out of 10, I will use a similar scoring system as last time, but won't go into that much detail.  As I said, going to be simple.  Will look for 10 participants also.

Rules

Not many.  No real issues with length of tracks, maybe just don't make a hait of sending 15 minute songs every round.

After two round, two participants will be eliminated, and after four rounds, another three will be eliminated.  Ten moving forward to the end.

Participants

jingle.boy
bl5150
TAC
Evermind
Lowdz
Bolsters
Big Hath
Parama
Luoto
Puppies_On-Acid
Tomislav95
Kattoelox
Lethean
Stadler
Elite



If I get more than 10, the guys that didn't get an invitation I might do like an elimination round first like last time.

I'm going to try and post a list of the albums I know from those years also to make it easier for your submissions to stop us going back and forth with any issues.

Submissions

My email is kadejordan@hotmail.com.  You can send a file which is preferrable, but if not send a link and I can usually get a copy of the song from somewhere.

So, that'll do, I have to go to work now but am going to do my best to keep this thing moving a quickly and smoothly as possible.

Kip is ready for you now;

I wanted to join but then I saw the banned list and even stuff that isn't on the banned list is music you've probably heard already so I'm not even gonna chance it; you seem to like quite a few bands I do so you've probably picked through the genres we like enough to already know exactly what you like. Good luck everyone  :metal :metal :metal

Wow, seeing as I've maybe bought 10 new albums from the last three years, and 98% of the bands I listen to are on the banned lists... I think I'm going to be the real Stadler, and sit in the balcony and make snide comments about what's going on on the stage.

The themed rounds are going to be fun as I didn't discover a lot of music either in 2017 or this year.  I'll manage to find something though.

Let's do it then. :metal

i may try to send exclusively from the last 4 years just for the hell of it, over half of what i have lined up is from just the past few years anyways

also any length limit? everything i picked out is under 10 mins anyways but round 9 sounds kinda like an epic round & i might pick out a longer one for that if so, dunno

2018 submissions will be drawing from a limited pool, but it might just force me to get thru my 'to be listened to' list.

@ TAC... shall we defer our challenge to the 2017 round, or ya wanna get it over with?
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

As far as rules go, well there kind of isn't any really.

14 players seems like a lot, but why the fuck not.  If Jon and Dave are in, I'll take one more and go with 15.  I'm a workaholic and we'll see how we go.

Chad, I actually thought about sending them right in the first round just to see your reaction. :lol

Nah, I'm not that much of an asshole.

Kade, 15 is a lot of players but hey, it's your roulette. I know I struggled with 12 players in both of my roulettes.  :P

You are right Ruslan.  Okay, depending how many more we get, I might do a quick elimination style round.  I think 12 is a good number actually.

I'm actually quite surprised to see Time Requiem and Fairyland on your list. And Pathosray. It looks like you're big on the heavy stuff but also get down with super melodic, symphonic and/or experimental music too. I know what I'm sending for round 1 but the results for that will determine how I play this...

Here's one important thing to note;

In the year themed rounds, just because a band is on my banned list, doesn't mean an album from that artist from the year is banned if it's not on the list of albums.  A lot of bands I've lost track of that I know have released new stuff, I just never got around to checking it out.
