i wouldnt know much 'not so fast' melodic stuff. maybe try learn cover songs by melodic death metal bands like arch enemy or kalmah or children of bodem. or maybe if your allowed make your own piece of music?

What is the audition for? Music Btec or band?

how about going with something you already know. that being said if you don't already know something thats kinda fast and requires technical proficiency, 8 days before practice is not the time to decide you wanna be a fast technical player.

Play something you know and enjoy; there's nothing worse than watching a guitar player who isn't enjoying what they're doing because they're thinking too hard about what they're playing.

i agree with above comments. playing something you know, and well is a lot better than attempting to play something hard and looking bad cuz you've only had 8 days.
