Re: Nur Ein VIII- Round Four

I have played guitar in bands that were undeniably metal, with tunes that blow the doors off any song that was presented this challenge, including our own. I think this statement completely hit the nail on the head. If you had entered a different song -- one that would "blow the doors off"...

Re: Nur Ein VIII- Round Four

You can't have six judges with six completely different interpretations or expectations where the challenge is concerned. You have to have some kind of consensus before you post the challenge. And then you have to have at least a little restraint when it comes to showing your biases in a multi-page...

Re: Nur Ein VIII- Round Four

"Metal" is a way of life for me ... It's all about respect, and I have an immense amount of respect for these artists some of which I am lucky to call my friends and I have the same amount for all of you. Yeah. Whatever. "Metal" to me means spotty faced liitle gits with no socia...

P.S.: Caravan Ray, just so my subtle jab isn't just mistaken for a stereotypically American ignorance of geography, the point of all of that was to imply that you are a kiwi, insultingly. I am fully aware that you're actually a banana-bender.

Re: Nur Ein VIII- Round Four

Well. That's an awful lot of shit-talking for some dude from Hobbit Land. How does it feel to live in a place that's inspired so much hard rock and metal over the years? http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/ledzeppelin/rambleon.html http://www.darklyrics.com/lyrics/blindguardian/nightfallinmiddleearth.htm...

Re: Nur Ein VIII- Round Four

I'm surprised you were eliminated Ben, historically song comes long before challenge. It seems when all things are equal otherwise the challenge comes into play. I heard the metallic noises in your song, and I got it. I wouldn't have dared do that, but i expected the judges to eat it up. I won't sp...

Re: Nur Ein VIII- Round Four

Ben -- for what it's worth, I really enjoyed most (if not all) of your previous entries. Unfortunately, this one did basically nothing for me. I didn't rate your song low because I didn't think it was "metal enough" to meet the challenge, but perhaps it was because it wasn't "metal en...

Re: Nur Ein VIII- Round Four

I'm not going to touch the "have you heard any of these" comment. I see where you're trying to go for a Judas Priest sort of thing with the doubled guitar leads (i.e., 0:16-0:30), but you already have several factors working against you: the extremely synthetic-sounding electronic drums, f...

Re: Nur Ein VIII- Round Four

I'm disappointed I got eliminated Me too. It's especially disheartening to see the song I ranked highest overall not making the cut. Also, I'm quite baffled about all the harmony comments I've gotten. I only have harmonies on the "ahhs" - everything else is just octave doubling. Are two t...

Re: Nur Ein VIII- Round Four

It was added in the knowledge that this would be my last Nur Ein song this year and wanted to end on high, possibly flying in the face of the challenge (it does have guitar harmonies though, how often do I do that?!) and I'm sure it'll shove the stick right up Eric Y's ass but fuck it. Personally, ...

Re: Nur Ein VIII- Round Four

Black Sabbath were influenced by blues and jazz. Some stuff about influences ;) music genres are defined by the beat and the melody. metal is always heavy on the downbeat, you lay on the upbeat it's ska always heavy on the one. It's dangerous to say anything is always anything. But usually you're r...

Re: Nur Ein VIII- Round Four

For the record, I didn't post the link to the Encyclopaedia Metallum "rules" because I agree with them 100%, or because I consider them the foremost authority on what is/isn't "metal". Just pointing out that there are a lot of opinions out there, and a lot of controversy, if you ...
