I have a few ideas for a genre. We should make a poll of sorts though I think.

- Atmospheric death metal
- Black Sabbath worship
- Doomy thrash

Ilwhyan may I suggest that you make a new thread, whatever the theme may be, and go from there because otherwise I'm sure nothing will come to fruition.

The contest has ended. We're now moving to the results & reviews phase. Outsiders are welcome to write reviews aswell.

Here's the thread: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=88779

I won't have time to host it, and I'll only participate if our band is going to record at the time anyway.

Could you, SLK, perhaps, host the new challenge? For May or June?

I'll be happy to host, but not sure what the challenge should be.

If you value solidarity and want to ensure maximal participation, you can make a poll (start a thread). Alternatively you can make it whatever you want it to be and take the risk of alienating some potential participants.

If anyone has any ideas for the next songwriting challenge, feel free to discuss.

Or, we can skip it and go straight for the annual Doom Metal Challenge in November. :D

Sounds like a plan. I was thinking of having the leftovers from VI as themes, but I'm sure someone else can come up with a better idea.

I like the idea of doing the leftovers from VI again like kingnuuuur mentioned. It gives people a lot of freedom and I think it went over well the first time through.

I also had an idea where one person can submit a riff, something that is relatively simple, and then tab out the riff. Then, all the participants must write a song in which they somehow incorporate that riff (or a play upon that riff) at least once. It would be interesting to hear what sort of different types of metal we can all come up with from the same riff. This might be real difficult to pull off,because the submitted riff would have to be easy enough for all to play and flexible enough to fit into different types of metal, but it's something different.

Actually, I was suggesting that we have VI's leftover themes for the doom metal challenge, not that we redo VI all over again. (though that's not suggesting that it won't happen in the future)

By the way, good to have you back GeoCO3.

That get's my vote. People can go a lot of different directions with doom and having a randomly assigned theme is good for pushing creativity.

And yeah, september would probably be a decent time for it.

Since our band is finally getting its shit in order again, I might contribute. Unless I can inspire the band to write a song with me, I'll still be offering guitar and vocal contributions.

So, should we get this going? Doom challenge with randomly distributed lyrical themes?

Kingnuuuur, you've done a bang up job hosting but if you need a hand or would like to take a break on this one I'd be happy to help out.

Please sign me up. I'll do what I can about the bass part. I'll feel like a total tool if I don't try this.

Thanks. :) I think I'll take a break this time. I've been a little bit pissed off with myself failing to submit anything for the last couple of challenges. :grumble:

Yeah, I'd like to get something going and unless anyone else is particularly keen I'll host. It did occur to me that this is back to school season and I know there are a number of students on here so how about we wait a week or so to start it up, let everybody get settled back into their routine.

Also, the doom challenge went pretty well last year and I think having randomly distributed themes will help mix things up, but if anyone has any other thoughts on theme or timeline speak up! This is a great collaborative project and I want to make sure we can get as many people in as possible.

And I think we might as well have this as a 2 month long challenge cause it seems that a month with the added week to 2 week grace period is still not long enough for the people who do sign up. lol.

Good idea, SLK. A 2 month challenge will allows us to be less lenient with timelines and keep these challenges from dragging on.

Corpse - randomly assigned themes sounds fun to me and should add a bit of variability to the challenge, too.

Yea cause they are pratically getting to be 2 month challenges anyway. At least this way when it's the end we can all just go piss on it.. it's the end if you couldn't do it in that 2 months it just was never going to happen. And with 2 months for me I can always do thrice the work if I feel like adding to it... like in Feb's challenge where I wrote, recorded, did all the art and layout for an album and released it within the month.

after the doom challenge going on right now, i have an interesting idea for another challenge. Contestants write an instrumental song, and one of these submitted songs are chosen at random for people to write their own lyrics to and interpret it the way they want to. it doesn't have to be this particular set of rules, but the idea is to see how people interpret a certain song or set of lyrics and see how their creations would differ from everyone elses. kind of like seeing creativity at the same level as everyone else and seeing how much it can expand for each person. (sorry if i explained it a little confusing)

Arkhane really don't like the whole idea of working on someone else's song also hate the idea that there is some sort of vote of picking a 'winner' for us to work on. that defeats the entire purpose of why we started this back up to begin with. There shouldn't be any sort of judgement like that, just a plain review from each person on their impressions on the work the others had created be it positive or negative. I know I wouldn't even bother with that challenge at all.


rabidmadman it was challenge 3 I believe.

thought it would have sparked some ideas for new challenges, the way i described it didn't have to pertain the same rules, know what i mean?
