    Song A Week General Discussion

    Everyone cool with keeping most of the general discussion here? Seemed like a few threads were getting buried in the churn of the weekly ones, and it would also make it easier to dig through the weekly threads to find the soundcloud links.

    Sounds good to me.

    I guess we would still comment on the tracks in the weekly thread, right?

        Yeah, that's what I was thinking. This would be for the more meta stuff.

          When are we going to fire up the new one? This weekend? Seems we’ve got some people eager to jump in, with some new people ready to join the fun.

            We're waiting for 7DT to get some bandwidth so he can participate, too.
            Don't expect much, it's not like I'm a Rocket Surgeon...

                    It is go, and especially for you, multiple entries score points (on a sliding scale) per week

                      What’s the official stance on using old riffs we have laying around?

                        Now, if it had been a track you have had for ages, and are just posting it up just to have something, well, that's not fair, but this is! So yeah, you got yo points in!

                            Hey gang.

                            i think from what I'be read we can post SC clips here, if not let me know and I will remove it.

                            anyway


                            This is a song I've been working on forever and I keep coming back to it. I cant leave it alone and keep trying to make it ''better''. This song is about my aunt who has passed away back in 2004 in house fire. She was like a mom to us and it was very difficult to accept that she was not coming back. This song is my humble tribute to her, I'll admit its hard to hold back tears while I sing it or listening back. I tried many, many, times to sing but I'm not a singer and I could not do it, no matter how hard I tried. Then I hear Sapient sing ( from other forum) and I asked him if he could sing over it, him being awesome brother he agreed and we started to work on this song. I am very difficult guy to deal with, as I cant rest till it sounds right to me. bless his heart he has been very patient with me and took many retakes. I'm still not happy with vocals, he is new to singing and he tried his best. I got to give credit where its due. I do appreciate a lot him trying but I still want different vocals on this. Maybe @revdurectifer can try his version on this? he is already has like 2 songs from me that he is working on right now maybe he can ad this to the pile too? lol ( love you bro ) or any one wants to sing over is more than welcome to take a shot at it.

                            @leaon been killing it for me, man, he provided some awesome and killer tha BOOM BOOM BOOM bass for many of my songs and I can never thank him enough for it. He is very talented individual, he can play guitar , bass and piano. He is my new bass player... Its awesome he dose not try to change anything he just dose his thing and sends it to me.


                            on this track he is doing bass and piano, the piano is sooo good, man i love it.

                            yes, I will come back to this song again to make vocals better if I cant find anyone right now. lol


                            anyway, I hope you enjoy and maybe you can relate in some ways to it too.

                            cheers

                              How does everyone feel about the new weekly vote thing I've started?

                                Personally, I’m not into it. Everyone covers different genres of metal so evaluating which song is “best” isn’t practical to me. Your songs always seem to have the best production so you would win on those merits. Ced has some silly talent so anything he throws together already sounds crazy good.

                                I won’t be voting on entries. The whole point is to encourage folks to get off their butt and write music and voting for which entry is best adds some undue pressure. We all like different shades of metal and have different recording/producing abilities and I don’t want this to end up being a vote based on those merits.

                                  Totally agree. Voting makes it a popularity contest, not a motivation to write songs. I think, if anything, voting will discourage people from entering.

                                      Yeah I voted but I'm not too bothered about votes. As has been stated, submissions are wildly different.
