In disagreeing with your statement, I was also disagreeing with the notion that passion was the problem.

I thought everyone's links were gonna be posted at the same time. I agree with you on that.

My rule of thumb is, if you can execute clean vocals well in a song ... don't stop.

The growls hurt the song for me, a lot.

The next one isn't as bad.
And this is the thing about death metal. You either like the growls or you don't. I was receptive to it from the start - took a little getting used to, but I was into the aesthetic. I wouldn't change anything.

And I love Garm's vocals on Nightmare Heaven, specifically those after the mid-song interlude. "And the miracle is that nothing has happened/nothing has a history or a name" is just sensational.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

Then explain what the problem was.

wow, that's awesome! i'm impressed

How did you get a bye?

5 people in a group means one person has a bye each round. I'm the 5th member of Group 1 so...

Well, thanks for that. Not like I can prove it, though. Anyway, I have a long list of friends who've been signed to major labels, so I'm not even in the top ten of people I know/am friends with.

With 5 people in a group, someone will be absent as it were from a round. Like 1 vs. 2 and 3 vs. 4. 5 gets a bye.

yeah, i hate how there wasn't the mega email or whatever with all the links so people could download everything.

i've got everyone from rounds one and two downloaded, along with irishteen/lemonchick, lmp, and lemonmelon since they emailed me their links. the only thing that's preventing me from listening to any of theirs is i don't know what round they'll be in, and i'm keeping a journal of the contestants from each round, in order.
