Should the max number of artists in the EP round be increased from 4 to 5?

Yes that would be much better and Cyril is very attractive.
3 (14.3%)
No that's a terrible idea, Cyril should be stoned.
5 (23.8%)
Whatever.
13 (61.9%)

Round 3 first impressions
5.   Gorgeously gloomy.
13.   Sonically rich and warm – sounds like my kind of thing.
14.   This seems to be a gorgeous mix of ethereal and grounded.

Keeping up with my method, I think it's one of these 3

Crow

#5, I think.

Somewhere in the group of 4, 5, 13, 14 in general if not specifically #5.

Evermind

Let's say mine is 19, if not, then 14, and if not then hopefully not 3 :lol

Ralf Scheepers is awesome imo. Definitely hit or miss but when I saw him in 2016 he gave one of the best live metal vocal performances I've ever seen. Guy hits high notes like they're effortless for him and he always sounds like a powerful demon no matter where in his range he's singing. He also looks like he could take your head clean off your shoulders with one punch.

And even though he so badly wants to be Halford, I think he's way better than Halford. Good choice of songs Chad. (If I were sending I would've gone with stuff like Nuclear Fire, but I'm curious how Rich will react to the longer stuff)
Scheepers is talented for sure, just what I've heard from him in the past I've never liked much in terms of style, timbre. As you say, he takes a Halford-like approach, and I've never much liked Halford either. :P

I'm afraid your method has let you down, it's none of those.

Not 5, but it is one of the others.

11.   Nothing special, but very good at what it does.

Sorry to say this Kade, but this is exactly how I feel about Vanishing Point.  Hope Rich doesn't.

Of course!

Let's stay hopeful and go for [1].
1 could definitely apply, but it's actually 2.

EDIT: Usual reminder not to read toooooo much into all of these (though some are pretty clear cut, of course).

I have so many ideas for the EP round... I really want to go out with something that will look unappealing from the artist/song names but will give total whiplash when actually heard. Hmmm

How the fuck did he do that? Not just guess it, but out of 22 submissions, manage to single out mine? Did he solve all 22? Huh Ruslan, did you just to fucking spite me?


I'm just gonna curl up with my Royal Rumble championship belt and pout now....
Just going back to this, should probably reveal that Ruslan might have had advance sight of your submission this time, just to mess with you. :biggrin:
