October - 30 Day - 2 Song challenge - Black Metal, All forms Challenge

begins: Nov. 1st ends Nov 30th

You have thirty days to write two original songs of your choice
The following criteria MUST BE MET


- All music must be written and recorded within a timeframe of thirty days from the start of the challenge

- All entries must be written within the thirty days of the challenge

- No Covers

- You will be granted 5 days of planning time prior to the start of the challenge - No music is to be written in this time - It is time to prepare

- You may work with friends or other users on this site in writing the songs, you will be listed together

- There are no restrictions being placed on recording quality, make it as '' true '' as you like


PURPOSE OF THIS CHALLENGE

The purpose of this challenge is to bring the Black Metal Musicians of the MA together and release our
work together in an online format
Also, to get people writing music and to increase your skills in songwriting in this area, etc

BUT I'M NOT KVLT / TRUE ENOUGH?!

Don't worry, if you are not very familiar with the genre known as Black Metal then you can use this as an
Opportunity to familiarize yourself with the genre and to try creating some Black Metal yourself
I'm sure most people on this site have had at least a small brush with the icons of Black Metal, so try
your best, and try creating some of your own, even if you only write two songs that last a total of
three minutes, it is still Black Metal
one of the songs can be an intro/outro to the main song.




CRITERIA FOR YOUR COMPOSITIONS

Here is the catch for this challenge

All of the songs that participants submit must be rooted within the genre known as Black Metal
The all forms of Black Metal are acceptable, but this challenge is not limited to

Traditional Black Metal - Dark Throne, Burzum, Satyricon
Melodic Black Metal - Rotting Christ,Dissection,Sacramentum,Enthroned,Cirith Gorgor
First Wave Black Metal - Venom,Bathory,Hellhammer
Ambient Black Metal - Burzum,Serpents Eclipse,Isildurs Bane


These are just some examples of bands that have written great Black Metal, be it first or second wave




WHAT IS NOT ALLOWED

What I do NOT want is anything that is remotely akin to anything by Zarach '' Baal '' Tharagh
This is a serious challenge and it is to start people creating new music, and to explore yourself musically
Not to release an endless flow of sewage upon innocent listerns ears



HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR WORK

Upload your songs to rapidshare and then send me the download link in a PM
DO NOT POST THE LINK IN THE THREAD
We don't want work exposed before it is officially released



THE END OF THE CHALLENGE

At the end of the challenge I will personally compile all entries into a folder and upload it to Rapidshare
Then I will post multiple download links of the songs in this OP


REVIEWS OF ALL ENTRIES

All participants must download the folder, proceed to listen to every song, and then post a review of every
track, barr their own, providing a full paragraph review of each song, and a score on a scale of 1-10
Based on how much they enjoyed it



DO NOT ENTER IF

Do not enter if you cannot fullfill all of these requirements, or if you do not agree with the rules
This is a challenge with rules and criteria chosen by myself
If you do not agree with these rules, leave this thread now
Very simple


Summary of this challenge

30 days of song writing time
5 days of preperation
No restrictions on recording quality
No restrictions on song lengths
Collaboration is allowed
All entries must be black metal


Go forth, my minions!

edited to change the real month it should be completed in.

edited to add the start and end of the competition and to reflect that all forms of black metal are welcome. blank n roll, post black metal, blackened death. It's not so strict as it was originally written. as long as it's pretty recoginizable as a form of black metal.

mainly the part about banning from future challenges for failing in the challenge in some form.

Hmm...I'll most likely be sitting this one out, coming so close on the heels of the other challenge. That, and I dunno if I'm up for doing black metal just yet.

Whats this about 5 days to prepare, but no music is to be written in this time? If I've got an idea, its not gonna wait.

Besides, what exactly is the preparation required to write black metal? Meditation? Living alone in the woods? A high fiber diet? ;)

Corpsefister, I think they mean to use that time to fully plan the song(s), mayhap so as not to rush one's self.

Count me in. Although I have yet to hear any black metal I actually like, I do really enjoy reading the wikipedia page on black metal and I like the "idea" behind black metal. Don't count on me having any thin, buzz saw guitars or high pitched shrieks though.

I don't think the music will be hard to do, but me thinking up of black metal lyrics without being cheesy may be :-) Oh well, it's all a learning process.

Hmm..All I have in my arsenal is possibly some vocals, a bass guitar, and a drum machine. I guess I can try haha. I should have all of the kinks in my recording system worked out before the deadline, so I'll try it. Don't expect a masterpiece haha.

Sokaris symphonic black metal is fine. I'm not strict about things.

Corpsefister, in that fice days you are supposed to go burn down a church and maybe stab someone to death so that you can get in the proper mindset for the challenge.

overkill666, I expect pure audio gold!!

I've been having a section of a Melodic Black Metal stuff written in FL studio right now. But I've been very busy recently too.

Question, can the music be entired made in FL studio?

I guess no one remembers that the 2nd MA "competition" failed because... well, for a few reasons, and basically all of them are repeated here.

wasn't here for that. So it doesn't matter honestly. You are welcome to leave and not bother to comment on the thread. There seems to be enough interest in doing so since it's not a real competition just a motivator of sorts.


DecayingMyYouth, sure that'll work as long as it's black enough to be considered that more than just death metal.


UndisputedSol, yes it can all be made in FL studio.


NightmarePersona, yes there can be folk elements.

Took me a second to get into them, but I'm liking that. They have an old black metal feel to them, but lower vocals and thicker guitars. Very nice. I think I'll listen to this and Watain on repeat this month, and see what comes out. Thanks for the recommendation.

No problem, the whole album "Arisen from the Ashes" is great really.

This is one hell of a shot in the dark, and i'm being completely serious, even if it sounds border-line retarded. Slam black metal?

I've only heard one band that actually has done this genre: http://www.myspace.com/antichristianfuckfestofficial

I'm going to do it a bit different than them though. I might actually add some synth, too.

I think I've figured out what I'm going to do. One song is going to be ambient black metal, and the other is going to be deathened black metal.

I think I'm going to write an orthodox black metal song about spooging in jesus' eyes or something. Maybe I can name it "The Black Jizz of Satan."

I've been reading Ondskapt's webpage and their official manifest about eating your own excrement and how self-torture is the true blessing of Satan and turning unhuman, and I think I'll try to take inspiration from that in my lyrics. Tonight I'm going to start by getting in the mood, so I'll just turn on one single red lightbulb and spank myself while letting out gutteral moans and eating a handful of my own poop. I should be able to write some pretty krieg lyrics after that. If I have to, I'll start writing my guitar solos with a ball punch.

I've been listening to as much black metal over the past couple days as I can, and so far I've written about 2 minutes of a pretty decent black metal song. Woohoo!

I have a few riffs on the table, both guitar and keyboard. So far, heavily inspired by Cradle of Filth, but with not as many hooks, giving them an Emperor sort of twinge. I have Dani sort of vocals in mind but I'd really like to master the vocals on Enthrone Darkness Triumphant. Mine are really gargly.

one song i am going to do is probably going to be connected with sisyfos (and the Myth of Sisyfos by mr. Camus)

don't know about the second...

one of them will surely be in vein of 2nd wave (i mean Mayhem and Burzum)

I'm glad to see everyone getting in gear for it. I haven't done anything for it as of yet. I threw around a couple of riffs but ended up using them in my grind band slightly altered.

i'm still having horrific recording problems and i'm just not sure what my next step is going to be.

Couple questions:
1. Is it ok if it is Folky, and Atmospheric?

2. Does Length Matter?, because I have a lot of ideas and im thinking my song might be like 10-15 minutes long
