I'VE LOWERED IT TO 15 PEOPLE!!!! IF DARK TOM ACCEPTS HE'S IN AND ITS TIME TO START VOTING!!!
I MYSELF SHALL HAVE MINE BY NEXT WEEK. LISTEN THROUGH EVERYBODY'S THEN NEXT WEEL THE POLL SHALL BEGIN!

Some may remember over a year ago I held one of these and it was popular but I didn't
go on regularly enough to even finish it

but this time I'm gonna be nerdy and stay on this so lets finish what was started!!!!

1. All recordings must be ORIGINAL!
2. You may add drums, keyboards whatever, its a composition this time however the FOCUS guitar or not to discriminate, bass
3. Its an instrumental...no vocals
4. When critiquing no trashy talking, be honest but not mean
5. I'm happy to extend the finish results date so just ask or pm me!

Right the date today is the 17th of March
Firstly 20 people can enter MAX
Don't want it huge
Post on UG, youtube or whatever' best for you
Every gets one vote, when you've heard someone's give their name and comment with a score out of 5 however YOU CAN ONLY VOTE FOR ONE PERSON AND THAT CAN'T BE YOU!

After a month or so we'll do results with a simple count and we'll find 1st, 2nd and 3rd places

Please read this first, any skill level is invited, I haven't been playing long myself so all are invited

Any queries just ask

Nice well let me know
as said I'm happy to give extra time to record because as soon as those are done its a pretty easy process
#4
Is there a definite date the recordings have to be finished by?
I may be able to do it, but I tend to take my time on such things.
#5
I am truly tempted to do a death metal styled ballad

Widow6- As I said up above (hopefully) I am not fussed to be honest, within a month maybe??
In fact lets make things easier because I don't expect 10 minute power metal ballads. Your recording can be up to 3 mins ok. That means you don't have to make something huge.

Rob

Steven E- heheheh why not matey, experiment with it

FEEL FREE TO COMMENT BUT PLEAAAASE STATE IF YOU ARE JOINING THIS IF YOU START COMMENTING

THANK YOU!

No problem. Whether its doom, thrash or prog metal, not fussed, as long as its got some heaviness to it then thats cool.


Just state if your are joining or not though

This is something a friend and myself wrote and recorded on my laptop! I used Sonar and Gearbox. It isnt very good quality but I'd like to get some opinions. It was written about a year ago and since then the stuff I'm writing isn't so slow or lame but still, I juat want some opinions. I'll be going into the studio to do a solo project in June... I'll kep ya updated. M

Martallik666- cheers for joining!

Don't worry-quality of recording isn't going to be the effector of the quality of the riff in this case so no worries, I'll vote soon
#11
I am indeed very interested in this competition. I have a few things up my sleeve that might be excelent for this.
#13
Im definatelly gonna do something death/thrashy with a side of groove

I'll enter this, sounds like fun.

Here's my entry : http://www.myspace.com/exp0band

My entry is Influence pt.2, the second one down in the playlist. It's not straight metal, but I'd say it's heavy/guitar centric enough to be considered metal as per the rules of the competition.
Schecter C-1 Classic
Schecter Omen 6
Line 6 Spider Valve 212 40W

Exp0_ my solo project. Check it out here!

I've got an epic song for you guys comin' up soon. So basically, I'm in.
Mah Geah:
The Dreaded T-Bird
Ampeg BA115
Boss Bass Synth
Boss Bass Overdrive
Blue Steel Strings
Clayton Picks
Monster Cables

Coheed and Cambria: Rush, Iron Maiden, and Star Wars had a baby.
#22
Yeah! But um... I don't know if I would qualify, because I don't have GREAT guitar skills, but I know how to put together a really nice sounding recording.

The song I'm doing is mainly strings, with a guitar chugging in the background. Sounds like a movie score.

Plus the drums sound godly and the ending measure is pretty sick!

Check out my profile. I just uploaded it. Only about 1:40, so nothing too long here.

As I said in the main thread section, skill is no matter my friend!

Think about it, you can be one fast shredding bastard but your riffs may not be catchy. This isn't a contest for the fastest riff, its for the best sounding stuff

I'll check it out and do a collective review later
cheers
#24
Hey you lot quick question

Instead of counting votes would you like me to add a poll to vote simply saying "who has the best composition"

hopefully I can add up to 20 names.......

opinions on that please!!!!!! and do read this!!!
#27
I agree with Voltaire, I think a poll would be better.
