I've seen only one of these ALMOST succeed. Lets try for another.

T&C Post Hardcore Competition.

I want 4-5 Judges that know their way around this genre and listen to many different PHC bands.

Rules:

-The piece has to be an original. As in your own. Brand new piece made for just this competition. EDIT* I guess if you are in a band and you guys write a PHC song you may submit it as long as it isn't already created. Please be truthful.

-You can not collab with another person or ask for help.

-If you are a participant you can not judge.

-Put some effort into this and have fun


To sign up just post here that you are in and if you want to judge or be a contestant.


Judges:

-UneasyHearts

-JWD32792

-Injuyin

-ParadoxEmpire

-stradivari310

I'll go for it. Expect a Saosin/Alexisonfire style posthardcore song. I'm not good at that flashy DGD, high register style haha.
We can only guffaw at all the humbug we are told about martyrs.

Thats fine man. I love (old) AOF so much. I sometimes like them better than DGD. Though they are my favorite.

This I like.

I would love to participate but I go on holiday soon and then when I get back I have to advise to sit an exam I missed a few months back cause I was ill. So basically I posted to say I can't participate...

Hey friend, I'll volunteer to be a judge, when's deadline's etc? And why isn't the creator judging?


Yeah that would make sense. I just didn't think many people would actually join so quickly so i put myself down as a competitor.

And too all who have joined i am excited :] and frankibo I am sorry ):. Next time around? :]
#15
Hmm. If I listened to post-hardcore I would probably sign up to write a song.

But it just isn't my forte in writing. I can judge, though, even though I don't really listen to post-hardcore, I can still tell what's crap and what's good because there's a fair amount of PHC songs I critique on here, and my band's drummer is huge on PHC so I can get some idea of PHC.

Oh, shhhhhhhh!
If it makes you feel better, I've had a tonne of serious creative blocks recently. So I doubt my entry will be any good, my last PHC contest entry was just aload of random crap glued together, and didn't really flow at all. Still, worth a try.

I wouldn't say that about it
I liked individual parts of it, but as a whole, it was just aload of random junk glued together. It never really flowed as well as it should have done, in my opinion.

I stated I didnt know how accurate that list was. If you are unsure about a band that you are trying to show influenced you just look them up on wiki. It should say emo or post hardcore to be sure that is a good influence to go with. also google search post hardcore and go to the first wikipiedia link.

I posted a submissions thread here:
https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?p=24761858#post24761858

You may submit anytime before the deadline if you really wish to do so.

Also I updated the contestant and judge list.

Not bad so far, a little more metal influence than most PHC that I listen to but I think it's definitely PHC enough to fit the contest.

Well personally i'd like contestants to stray away from the metalcorey phc bands styles. I mean it still is phc and by all means do it if u must.
#31
Why I am I contestant?

:P

I can try writing but I think I'd be better at judging. lol

To be honest I'm struggling.. too much prog in my head lol, sounds like you might get something like my entry last year, which was closer to prog-jazzcore than anything
#36
Everything is sounding too much on the metalcore side of things rather than post-hardcore for me. Mrrraaawwwh.
