    Skyforger lost the tiebreaker against House Of Sleep, based on the average number of votes.

    The Flash Dennis Wilcock did 9/11

    I have no idea about Amorphis so I didn't participate in this survivor, but I will be listening to the Top 10 soon to have an idea about the band.

    House of Sleep. At least this decision is easy.

    Both great songs, but Sampo has more variety.

    Voted House of Sleep in the end. Sampo's definitely not my favourite overall, though. It has a great start and decent verses, but I find the chorus an anticlimax.

    I think it's pretty representative of the band, although a little biased towards the softer side of the newer Tomi-fronted material.

    I agree completely. An odd choice for number one, but still a good song. The chorus is alright.

    Thanks to all the voters! This was a fun game. Shouldn't have lasted this long, could've had more voters and less blasphemy, but oh well... Not satisfied, can't get over You I Need getting eliminated after 2 rounds :p

    Not a bad top ten at all. Wasn't this meant to be a 'short, end-of-year game'? :p It was good to encourage one or two more people to give Amorphis a spin, too. Since I started listening to them, I've been genuinely surprised that they don't have a bigger following. Maybe they're not heavy enough for some, but equally, I would have thought they were melodic enough, if not sometimes catchy enough, to attract a wider audience.

    Thanks for hosting, NP! Glad to have discovered a cool new band.

    The Flash Dennis Wilcock did 9/11

    So, I gave the Top 10 a spin.

    This might be a controversial opinion seeing how the Top 10 turned out and the links NP provided, but I enjoyed "Magic & Mayhem", "My Kantele" and "The Castaway" the most. And I enjoyed the original versions of those songs more. Safe to say I should be checking out early Amorphis records?
