Here's mine:

thrash riff

I could clean it up a bit, but I want the competition to keep moving.

Let's wait a bit, I think there might be a few left. Nosferatu, Helloween, Abomination, I'm looking at you guys. Get at it, I wanna hear them.
#84
I had a basic idea and it's developing quite well haha. I've just had a shitload of shit to do lately sadly but the riffs almost done! leaving in a few hours so I'll try to get it in by then if not then tomorrow for sure since it's goddamn Sunday, wake Jesus up with dat thrash know what I mean?

Abomi only has internet access only during sporadic intervals. That's why he wanted someone to co-manage this with him, but I don't think anyone volunteered. Regardless I'm going to go ahead and suggest that we can continue without Abomi. He can make it up later. I think we can allow that due to his circumstances.

Nosferatu, however, I think we should give another day or two and after that move on, and he's out.
Who are you? The prince of darkness? Don't you have any friends?

I take this to mean we should start posting our reviews.

I'm fine with waiting a few more days but by the 10th this round will've been going for 3 weeks, gotta move on sometime.

I wouldn't at all oppose to you submitting your riffs but we'd have to see if the other fellows agree

So do the round 1 riff, round 1 reviews, and round 2 riff?

I could probably do that tonight really, I've got nothing going on.
In my heart I'm with you

#102
yeah bro just do it :P always fun to add another riff to the review pile haha, probably should start getting our Round 2 Reviews in too, we'll just catch up whenever Abo shows up

I'm not terribly into either of these subgenres that much so neither of these sound very inspired. I'm thinking about redoing them on a mic that doesn't suck if it takes awhile to move to the next round, a couple of takes I had to scrap because it tends to pop randomly even if I'm not playing that loud.

Edit: lol it cuts off the end of the hm one

My reviews will be in shortly.

Heavy:


NosferatuZodd09- 4/5 solid

Abomination94- 5/5 fucking awesome

The Virtuoso- 3/5 the hammer ons kind of took away from the melody

crazysam23_Atax- 2/5 there wasn't a clear idea that stood out to me

SaintVitus- 5/5 would love to hear you flesh that out into a full song actually

Kytokinesis- 4/5 the ending stops it so abruptly, my ears want it to finish

Jehannum- 3/5 solid

UnarmedLad- 3/5 I think we were the only ones to take that approach to heavy metal

RiffYourFaceOff- 5/5 sounds like a riff some of the heavyweights would use

The Wildchild- 5/5 catchy as fuck, too bad we can't add harmonies

Sanitarium91- 4/5 solid

Ultraussie- 3/5 audio issues aside it still sounds like a decent riff

Helloween4Ever- 4/5 catchy

Thrash:


NosferatuZodd09- 3/5 sounds more like death metal than thrash to me, but good nonetheless

The Virtuoso- 3/5 decent

crazysam23_Atax- 3/5 a bit too chuggy

SaintVitus- 4/5 solid

Kytokinesis- 3/5 another that I feel is more death than thrash, but good

Jehannum- 5/5 killer

UnarmedLad- 4/5 I like that you muted more than just opens

RiffYourFaceOff- 4/5 sounds cool

Sanitarium91- 5/5 probably my favorite this round

Helloween4Ever- 4/5 very solid, almost gave it a 5


I'm looking forward to the next three rounds much more than the first two, hopefully the game continues.
In my heart I'm with you

Glad you're joining palm mute, and wow, you're quicker than every single one of the rest of us! Will post reviews when I'm less crazy busy (making homework at 6 A.M...).
#108
Sorry about the wait brothers, but my riff is finally up.

http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/Abomination94

As much as I love some good ol' thrashing, I don't seem to have the knack for writing it, I'm not entirely happy with the riff but I figure I've held up the competition long enough.
Also please ignore the first run through of the riff, a wee fuck up but I just don't have the time to get a perfect recording right now.

I'll get my reviews up asap.
Pestilent winds
Rotting earth
Fire streaks the skies
Slow decay
Putrid stench
The Light chokes and dies
Ave finis!
Ave finis!
Ave finis!

Sanitarium91 : 5/5 Really captured the spacey Vektor style that I went for with my riff, but you did a much better job
Jehannum : 4.5/5
crazysam23_Atax : 2.5/5 couldn't quite make out the rhythm you were going for
SaintVitus : 4/5
Kytokinesis : 3/5
UnarmedLad : 3.5/5
The Virtuoso : 3/5
Helloween4Ever : 4/5
NosferatuZodd09 : 3.5

RiffYourFaceOff: 4/5 I really like the tremolo parts between the chords, nice.
Sanitarium91 : 5/5 Fantastic Sanitarium.
Jehannum : 5/5 I really like this one a lot too. You have a good, crunchy tone.
crazysam23_Atax : 2.5/5 Sounds really sporadic, you should try to clean it up a bit.
SaintVitus : 4/5 Almost sounds death thrashy to me, good job.
Kytokinesis : 4/5 It's probably just the sound quality, but I like how bassy your tremolo picking sounds.
UnarmedLad : 4/5 Nice, solid riff man.
Helloween4Ever : 5/5 Good, almost crossover feel to this one, nice.
NosferatuZodd09 : 4/5 I really love this riff, but it sounds more death metal to me, haha. Great stuff though Nos.
palm mute : Heavy Metal: 3.5/5 I'm getting a Sabbath feel from this one which suggests Doom to me, but good job nonetheless.
Thrash: 3/5 Not bad, but it just sounds a little tame to me.
Abomination94 : 5/5 Good high speed riff man.

Sorry for the late post. I enjoyed the submissions this round, let's move forward men!

Can we start uploading doom riffs yet? I likely won't have the time to upload mine next week but I've already got it recorded.

Yea for some reason Audacity didn't like my low E 0000000000000000000000


NosferatuZodd09 - 5/5 High speed thrash attack! I can tell there's some real finger gymnastics going on that is a little drowned out by the recording apparatus.

The Virtuoso - 4/5 - Ends kind of abruptly (I guess what people were complaining about my heavy metal entry ) but other than that great riffage.

crazysam23_Atax - 2/5 Sam you know you're my bro but this just sounds messy.

SaintVitus - 4/5 Sounds great, almost feels doomy at first but then it delivers

Jehannum - 4/5 Heavy as fuk

UnarmedLad - 3.5/5 Main riff is great, but I didn't like how you focused so much on the dissonant refrain.

RiffYourFaceOff - 5/5 loved it, sounds like it's straight from Omega Conspiracy-era Agent Steel.

Sanitarium91 - 5/5 sounds professional.

Palm mute -
heavy: 3/5 sounds pretty classic.
thrash: 4/5 I think you embodied the feel of the genre better here than on heavy metal.

Abomi - 4/5 Nice and fast. Though I don't know what it is but for some reason it sounds to me like it could be the theme song for G.I. Joe or something

Helloween4Ever - 3/5 Pretty solid.

There were a lot of great riffs this time around. You're all a lot better at writing thrash than I am.

Guys, I think I'm gonna have to drop out of the competition. I literally have no time between school and everything else. I'm sorry, but I'm fairly certain the reason my riffs aren't "up to par" is because I have no time to actually practice them or make them solid, lol. I'll post my final reviews in the next day or two. But after that, I'm gonna have to bow out.
#118
Fuck me are we still playing this or not?

I got super busy with school, and I still am, so I haven't had time to record anything for the Doom round. Sorry lads, but I have to call it quits until at least December 13th if you all want to continue. This lasted much longer than I expected, and we could just postpone it until people can come back if there is still interest in the game. Just a thought.

I think about trying to record a riff and get this started again just about everyday, but I'm just way too fucking busy with school right now as well.
