MA Songwriting Challenge: BLACK REVIVAL - JUNE/JULY 2015

Well, it's been a year since the last challenge, which I also hosted... So, in an attempt to revive the MA songwriting challenge tradition, and make up for the geeky theme of the previous challenge, I give you BLACK REVIVAL: a black metal challenge.


[General Rules]
= Feel free to post in the thread if you'd like to participate, whether you'll be submitting a song(s) or offering to collaborate.
= When your submission is finished, PM it to me (high quality 320kbps mp3 is preferred).
= Feel free to include a text file with lyrics, gear used, comments about your song, links, etc.
= Keep your submission private until the end of the challenge (I'll upload the complete compilation and post it to a new thread for reviews).
= Preliminary deadline is FRIDAY, JULY 31, 2015. The deadline can be extended if participants want more time.


[Music Rules]
= Submit one or more songs that have some kind of black metal in them. Whether it's traditional black, black/death, black/punk, black/jazz, etc., whatever. Really, anything goes. Just write something in your favourite style of black metal.


[Mo' Money, Mo' Participants?]
= In an attempt to lure in more participants, at the end of the challenge I will randomly pick a submitter's name (excluding my own) from a hat and they will receive $20 USD from me via PayPal. Yay, pizza money!


[Participants]
= CloggedUrethra
= Ilwhyan
= PureNegativism
= ShaolinLambKiller
= Funeral Frog / Rmind
= CorpseFister
= InThyKingdom
= HackTheRipper666
= Big_Grand
= Commandaunt

[Collaborators]
= Ilwhyan (vocals)
= PureNegativism (music)
= MutantClannfear (vocals)
= Vesheljinn (guitar, drum programming)
= Tanaros (mixing and/or mastering)


Looking forward to the submissions and good luck!

I'm planning to collaborate a song, as performed by a four-piece band. However, there may not be enough time.

I'm also interested in collaborating black metal vocals. Influences are Corvus formerly of Horna, Hoath Torog of Behexen/Sargeist and Pest of Gorgoroth.
Samples:

Hmm, we'll see. My recording PC has gone wonky on me and I'm not sure when I'm picking up a new one. I'll be back if I sort something out!

@CorpseFister get some 2nd hand. Won't cost u much. Focus on Xeon CPU's. I suppose you can get really descent one for 250-300 CAD.
CPU: 2x Xeon Quad Core 2.5GHz E5420
MB: Intel® 5400
HDD: 2000GB SATA
16384 MB DDR2, FB
SVGA: nVidia Quadro FX1700 512MB

Approx 310 CAD here at my country. Most likely you should be able to find it cheaper from USA or Canada. And you get damn nice PC for recordings.

I've been working on a new project and I suppose this might help me atually finish the set of tracks i've been working on. At the very least you can expect the demo tracks already completed from me.

I wrote my song this week and finally recorded it today. sans vocals. I'll do that in the next couple of days. It'll also be on the next full length for Subterranean Birthright.

Awesome, looks like you and Big_Grand will be the first to battle for the 20 bucks. :)
Cool to see people joining. I probably won't start my song for a couple weeks, but it'll definitely get done.

Someone would like to collaborate with lyrics for my song? It is melo-death-black, a lot of Dissection inspired riffs :)

This sounds like fun. I'd like to participate with my band/project Tremula (http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Tremula/51032). I'm just finishing recording and mixing the first song/single of the upcoming album I'm preparing and I'll probably have two songs ready to participate with by the end of July.

For anyone who may want to know, it's a longtime inactive band/project I'm reviving and this is what we've done some years ago:

Not really the thread for this kind of request, is it?

Skipping participating in this one but I'll be listening and writing something up as usual.

Music done and recorded guitars and drums. Still waiting for someone's lyrics "donation" tho :P As there will be enough time 'till end July, most likely it'll expand into EP or album lol :) For the poets, check the link bellow for an example of the style we're playing:

We're now a quarter of the way into this thing. Hopefully you guys can find collaborators for lyrics and vocals. :)

I ended up with 3 songs, about 15 mins. Going to keep practising them and record the music maybe this week. Still have to write lyrics.

I have next to 0 experience writing black metal tunes - so I'm gonna give it a try! Why not? What's the worst that could happen?

That's part of the fun of these challenges, to try new things. :)

Cool to see more people joining and making progress. We're almost at the half way point. I've got most of the guitars/drums recorded, still have to write lyrics.

EDIT: btw CorpseFister, what about some synth-only black metal?

I got my four, did all the vocals, mixed everything and today while working listened through twice so far only two minor tweaks i want to do. I'm actually very happy and satisfied with this.

Congrats, you are the first! Got your PM and will download on my laptop soon. Can't decide if I should wait to listen to the submissions until after the challenge is over, like everyone else...

I've got all the instruments recorded and lyrics written for mine, just have to record vocals.
