I think the title says it all, this will be a contest to cover songs from the immortal metal band Megadeth. I am going to need two other judges (who obviously need to be 'deth fans), and the contest will officially start when there are atleast two contestants and three judges. Anyone is welcome to compete in this contest, and the winner will be able to let everyone know they had the best cover of Megadeth.

Judging Criteria:


- Sound Quality: You will be judged on the sound quality of your cover, I understand not everyone has expensive recording gear which is fine, but obviously if it sounds like you recorded your cover in a cave, it probably isn't going to win (we aren't covering black metal).

- Tone/Sound

- How close it comes to the original, or how original your cover of the song is. Some improvisation and originality to spice up the song wouldn't hurt

- Soloing, if you choose to have a solo in your cover, how close it is to the original, or if it is improvised, how well it suits the song.

- If you choose to add your voice to the cover, it would definately improve your chances (assuming it doesn't completely ruin the song )



Rules:


1. Backing tracks are allowed, but if they are going to be used, please specify what instruments are on the backing track.

2. You can play as many instruments as you want for the cover, but please let the judges know which you recorded.

3. This can be done solo or as a collaboration between multiple musicians, however this will be taken into account when comparing covers.

4. Anyone is welcome to enter (whatever instrument you play).

5. Solos are optional.

6. Multiple people can do the same song.

Judges:

1. Celticknife
2. Smokey Amp
3. Metallica708

Contestants:

metal_matt - ?
puppetzmaster8 - Disconnect
metalmaster362 - Lucretia
False_god - A Toute Le Monde

Surely more people like the 'deth!?

Hell, i'm a metallica fanboy and i'm a fan of Megadeth! Surely there are more of those annoying megadeth fans that go "metallica sold teh out jamyz suck teh ****". Even those would do!!

Maybe it's just because even megadeth's rhythm is complex, so even without solos, you have to be advanced

By the way, if i'm allowed to judge and record, i might be able to get a hold on some recording equipment sometime soon, so possibly i could record my own version of Symphony Of Destruction

EDIT: I'm not saying i'm advanced >.<

Maybe I can record my band playing A tou le monde?

(We have 2 female vocalist, so it might sound interesting )
We have to record some songs for future gig-promotion anyways, so I will see what I can do!

2 questions: Do I have to post the lineup (who plays what) and when is the dead-line?

I have a lucretia cover with vocals(not done by me.Done by a soundclicker user, Warren Willard)

Can I join the contest?
#20
would anybody be able to get me a backing track for Rust in Peace? (Without the rhythm or bass guitar)

also i know theres 3 judges already but I'm arguably the biggest 'deth fan on this forum so it would be cool if i could be a judge.

alright... so I am contemplating leaving vocals in, but i cant get more than 10 mbs a time on soundclick. So the one without vocals will be missing the last 24 seconds.

Here it is.. http://www.soundclick.com/bands/pagemusic.cfm?bandID=610309


drum, bass are back tracks, both guitars and vocals by me......... the vocals are questionable so go easy.

Hmmm, if anyone's going to do She Wolf or Ashes In Your Mouth. I'd be up for recording some bass for it.

Okay, it's time to get some organisation into this. Everyone who has posted something, state what song you posted (if you posted multiple songs, choose ONE), and i'll try and get into contact with some of the other judges. Do not post from now on unless you have already posted a song or you are posting one.

Is that serious, your cover of Tornado Of Souls?
#32
yea.. i told you that thing sucks. I have been working on the solo, and the vocals.... well... there isnt much i can do right away. My damned soundclick bugged out on me. Im going to reregister n stuff and put more stuff on it. I made a Tool- sober cover which sounds alittle better... vocals still kinda suck though.
