Does the sound kinda come in and out? I had the same problem. Only thing I could do was record with the amp clean and then add distortion in audacity.

It's the distortion that's the problem, I think. The mics in laptops and phones simply can't handle the battering of sound from the distortion so it starts to drop out. If you record with your amp clean through those devices, I guarantee it won't have that problem. But that's problematic since you need distortion for this, basically. That's why I had to add distortion later.

Well since half of the contestants have gone MIA you could probably jump in here. I'm thinking Abami might as well just make this an open house at this point.

I had watery sound while recording in Windows. Try this: Control Panel->Hardware and Sound->Sound->Manage audio devices->Recording (tab)->Select microphone or whatever recording device you're using->Properties->Enhancements (tab)->Turn off Noise Suppression or just Disable all sound effects->Profit. At least, that did the trick for me.

The default Windows microphone driver has a noise suppression feature and regards metal guitar as noise.

If you're group 2 you don't have to review group 2, just group 1

Since not everyone who signed up has bothered to play I think we should review everyone's entries and scrap the group idea. Once everyone has submitted reviews we'll move on to round 2. Anyone who hasn't contributed by now is out of the game.

Kytokinesis 4/5 - very good and solid, traditional heavy metal type melodic progression. Well performed.
Jehannum 3/5
SaintVitus 3/5
crazysam23_Atax 2/5 - the rhythm of the riff was left a bit unclear to me, and I didn't really get the vibe of the round from this one, might work for the thrash round better.
The Virtuoso 3/5
NosferatuZodd09 3/5 - the out-of-tune-ness bothered me a bit, and the end of it made me feel like it could work as a melodeath type riff haha, but I could see it work for a heavy metal chorus or something
Abomination94 4.5/5 - a bit "mean" for the round maybe, but I can see it working since I got a bit of an Anvil-feel, which was good, nice job. I'm imagining a song in the spirit of Forged in Fire built on this, which brings much warmth to me.
The Wildchild 3/5 kind of a folkish vibe, not really my thing, but it's good nonetheless
UltraAussie 2/5 - I think I kinda hear what the riff is like, but I'm not sure haha! It sounds like a fairly menacing riff, but the recording doesn't do it any justice, hopefully you'll sort out better recordings for the future rounds.
RiffYourFaceOff 3.5/5
Helloween4ever 2.5/5
UnarmedLad 3.5/5 - old school shit right here, plain and simple

Damn, I would have been all over this had I seen it when it started. I don't venture into this forum that much though. This is a cool idea.

Helloween4Ever: 3/5
UltraAussie: 2/5 - Could barely hear anything, but I hear some dun da da dun da da dun in there so it deserves at least a 2.
Sanitarium91: 4.5/5 - Absolutely immense. Great build-up and execution.
TheWildchild: 3/5 - Solid medieval-tinged heavy metal riffage straight outta' the NWOBHM gems of old.
RiffYourFaceOff: 3/5
UnarmedLad: 4.5/5 - Feels very reminiscent of s/t Iron Maiden. Awesome progression and execution, and catchy as hell.
Jehannum: 2.5/5 - Good execution but I don't really feel that it fits the heavy/power mood. It has more of a modern "numetalcore"ish sound. Great riff on it's own outside of this context, though.
SaintVitus: 3/5 - Solid.
crazysam_23Atax: 2.5/5
TheVirtuoso: 4/5 - Good up-beat, high-speed heavy metal riffing.
NosferatuZodd: 3/5
Abomination94: 3.5/5
