We've come to yet another turn in our path of musical exploration within the Pit. What's in store for you here? A new album with a holiday theme that we must have completed by December. Anyone who is willing to record a holiday themed song will get to put it on this album and share their work with everyone here at UG. You'll be rewarded with fame and glory, as well as a new project to add to your résumé. The only criteria for your contribution is that it has a winter holiday theme. Covers of holiday classics like 'Noel' or 'Jingle Bells' or 'I Have a Little Dreidel' are encouraged, as well as any original pieces that have holiday lyrics. The songs can be altered classics, instrumentals based on holiday melodies, or what have you.

There will be no judging or competition in this project, as we're sure almost everyone will have to compose a piece solely for this album; we'd hate for you to do a lot of work for nothing. Our resident mastering genius rabidguitarist will be here to do what he can to improve quality on anything that might need some help.

So, without further ado, simply post saying that you're willing to contribute, and perhaps say what you have in mind.

Genius is a very strong word, you know...

Anyway, I've got a pretty flash intro medley down (if you want to use it), and I'm working on a cover of Wham.

yeah, i don't really feel up for making an intro or outro for this thing. I may try and find some interesting holiday song for an instrumental to contribute like everyone else, but that's it. Feel free to have as much input on this thing as you want. Oh, and i made a little edit to your name.

In that case... I'm strongly considering it. Okay, add my name, I'll work on this during the half-term week, which is in two weeks.

I know I said I might be able to do the last two but never managed to record anything, but I could definitely do an acoustic christmas song for this. Does it have to be original or can it be a cover?
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

anything, as long as it's christmas (but don't just use an original song of yours and switch the lyrics to be christmas-related, try and write a song with a holiday feel).

A metal christmas cover would be quite good, i think. There are some holiday melodies that'd be great with screeching lead behind them.


And remember, Hanukkah is fair game too; those Jewish songs have some real energy behind them.

You bitches be ready for some brutal symphonic death metal christmas riffage. Sign me up.

I'm gonna be pretty busy working on stuff of my own, but I haven't done anything musically just for fun in a long while. Any restrictions on song content or what have you?

I'll put a song in.
No idea what I'm gonna do, but probably some crazy metal remix of a song.
Open to suggestions, I'm listening to Gary Hoey's Christmas albums for inspiration

Well yeah then. I'll do a light hearted acoustic affair, possibly with sleighbells.

EDIT: no promises sleighbells will be included.

Can I use an older recording I made? Cause I recorded an instrumental version of "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" last Christmas and I got some good reviews for it. It's in my profile.
#39
I think I'm going to do a black metal version of Jingle Bells.

EDIT: Wait, what was the name of that Christmas song in Home Alone 2 and in that Wal-Mart commercial?

I'll do a cover of that "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas" song from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.
