Cool, it's a tournament for a band that I can finally participate in!

Well, I would've been able to do the Haken one that happened this year, but it was already close to the end by the time I'd listened to all the albums they had...


Iím looking forward to helping Octavarium return to its rightful place on the throne.

Octavarium absolutely deserves the throne...


...but A Change of Seasons exists.

A Change of Seasons vs Octavarium is the classic championship matchup that we were denied last year. May the heated rivalry take place where it belongs: the tournament finals.

I'm guessing the bottom 27 songs just aren't participating at all then. We had 152 songs in the last League. We have 125 this year, including the play-in songs.

These results continue to baffle.

Eve beating Viper King?!

TBOT and Repentance beating...well...anything else?!

Also -- probably because I wasn't paying enough attention -- I only just realized this was a bracket style tournament and not a mini-league.

Nothing shocking about that.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

For me, it couldn't be more obvious which song is the odd one out here.

If you think TBOT is a "masterpiece," what sort of words do you use for songs like ACOS, Metropolis and ITNOG?

For A Change of Seasons, I'm not sure how to describe it because I tend to have a hard time trying to describe what is my favorite song ever made, and what I'd consider to be the greatest song ever made.
As for the other two, I would say "shy of perfection". I'd easily put Metropolis Pt. 1 into the "masterpiece" category, but I've listened to it so much that I'm burned out on it so it has gone down my rankings in some ways.

Not much to comment so far but it's gonna be interesting to see all the impossible choices play out in the Division 1!
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!
