Great list, I agree with it most of the time (except for The Wretched, it's still one of my faves).

Hey, anyone up for another survivor?  ;D

I had much fun with it, and it a delight to look for what song got a vote each time I logged in. I know about several other ways of doing a survivor, so we could do Tristania again, although it might be too soon. Sirenia is probably a band that everyone's heard, but we all know what albums suck in THAT department.

Any ideas? Anyone wanna host? Anyone got a band?

Nope, I don't listen to Sirenia ^_^

I like the idea of another survivor 8)

I haven't played here but I've read and I think I understood most of it hehe. What about a "survivor" about caracteristics of the songs? For example:

Vocal Performance:
1. Evenfall.
2. December Elegy.
3. A Sequel of Decay.
4. etc.

Instrumentation:
1. Midwintertears.
2. My Lost Lenore.
3. Beyond the Veil.
4. etc

Atmosphere:
1. Angellore.
2. Heretique.
3. Deadlocked.
4. etc

Other Categories.

We could choose 2 songs per album for some categories in one topic and then vote for the best 4 songs from each category (every category would have 12 songs at first) in another topic. Later those songs will be in the "top list" and we could vote for the best one from that group.

Just my idea  ::)

Also I think Cease to Exist and Sirene should be included into Widow's Weeds for the game and Saturnine into Beyond the Veil. Those are awesome songs and they don't deserve to be out :P

I didn't quite get the rules, but sounds like something I could tune in to :) Why don't you ''host'' it (in my case it was just copy-pasting a list)? And explain the rules again :P

I'm not sure about how to do it but its basically:
1. We get a list of categories for example:
> Best Lyrics.
> Best Atmostphere.
> Best Instrumentation.
> Best Vocal Performance.


2. We vote for 2 songs per album (or something like that) for each category. We could make rounds for each album or make everyone tell his/hers 12 songs and then decide for the best ones. For example:
- Best Vocal Performance Nominated Songs:
1. Evenfall.
2. December Elegy.
3. Lethean River.
4. Angina.
5. The Shining Path.
6. Crushed Dreams.
7. Libre.
8. Endogenisis.
9. Mercyside.
10. Deadlands.
11. Exile.
12. Amnesia.


3. We vote for the best 4 (maybe it could be just 2) songs acording to the category. For example:
> Best Atmosphere Winners:
1. Sirene.
2. Saturnine.
3. Selling Out.
4. Sanguine Sky.


4. We make a list that includes all the winners (from each category) and we vote for the best songs in there.

I hope that makes it clearer :)

I didn't.

Well, we're nothing if not democratic... and I see now reason why we can't run several survivors at the same time. The only other two ideas I have is doing Tristania again, but start with Rubicon and Illumination, then reduce it to ten songs, then add Ashes, then reduce THEM down to ten songs etc etc etc. Second idea was to do a completely unknown band, everyone would listen to the album on grooveshark or something (we all know who to ask here...), and then vote like normal :) The last original idea was to do Sirenia.

IlluminatedWorldofAsh (could you make a nickname xD).... why don't you start up your idea :)

I kinda like the unknown band thing, but how will we choose which band?
Plus, I don't think many users are willing to listen to a band they don't like.

Is it possible to change the nickname ? :-\ Well, first I need you (or everybody) to tell me the ideas you have for categories. My idea was with "Best Lyrics", "Best Atmosphere", "Best Instrumentation" and "Best Vocal Performance" but maybe you have better ideas :P

By the way, I loved the idea of reducing to ten the songs starting from Rubicon ! As for the unknown band, it won't be easy to decide for a band. Maybe we could do a survivor about genres and bands that we like, it's easier to know a genre or a band than every song from one band.

I think your categories pretty much cover the good stuff... although ''best riff'' could work too, although it might be covered under intrsumentation.

Okay I'll fire up the 10songs-per-round-from-Rubicon-sexy-styled-survivor :)

Okay, Best Riffs was a good idea. My only problem now is the hours, how do you do it?! I don't know how to log in within the time that you give :( Maybe I could just wait until we get enough votes?

Ah it doesn't mind. I've got the idea of how to do it ;) I'm starting my survivor too 8)
