    MG.ORG song, cover and lead challenge season 2, week 2

    So, here we are, week 2 of the mg.org something for everyone challenge. Xmas has indeed come early, and we've had some cool as fuck entries last week and some new members joining in the fun! I've let Iron1 get away with his submission, as it was for a good cause, and as he's contributed tons to the previous seasons.

    Points totals so far:
    Buddha: 10pts
    Iron1: 10 suspect pts
    Scole: 10pts
    Leon: 10pts
    Nick: 10pts
    Markus: 10pts
    Valtteri: 10pts
    7DT: 10 shaky points

    This was born out of some people liking doing covers, whilst others like writing songs, with a combination of a few people just not having enough time to do full songs (hence the lead a week). Do one, 2 or all 3. Also, it means I only have to track one of these per week.

    Rules are simple, do 1-3 things every week, Post your creations in the weekly thread as soundcloud/youtube links. I'm aiming to get various contributions for backing tracks, each one will be credited to the author. As it's the first week I'm doing a dropbox download, but we should get some dedicated hosting or something like that courtesy of chris.

    The deadline for this week is end of play, Sunday 29th November

    Short rules:
    - You have until sunday midnight/monday morning to post your submission
    - Either do an original song, a cover/medley or a lead over the provided backing track per week.
    - Submissions must be stuff you've done this week, no matter how awesome an old track/recording is
    - 10 points for each submission, per category.
    - submissions as souncloud or youtube links. Well, as long as it is playable from a post in the thread really.
    - You can do multiple entries per category, but only the first one will score points.
    - no eliminations, do your stuff as and when you can
    - leads can be layer, melodies, you can chop and rearrange the track, whatever floats your boat really
    - Don't be a dick to other people. You can go to ss.org for that.
    - Don't steal other peoples songs
    - Don't steal backing tracks or pass it off as your own, give credit where it's due if you want to share your awesome yngwie malmsteen unleash the fjokking fjury face melting solo.

    LAW Track:

    A bit metal this week, courtesy of me, myself and I, 190bpm and in one of the happy keys of satan allegedly:

    This is awesome. Very Exodus-ey. Great job. And, yeah, I won't be able to submit another track likely this season since we won't be in our new house until mid-January... living that gypsy life real soon...

    I was going to do a thrash song, but got bored of the riff. Then I came up with another doom-y thing, which might work. Although now I got inspired to do a cover as well, let's see if I finish anything.

    I had some long days this week, so I'm behind. Might not make it in time, but I'm itchy to do another one like last week.

    Nick that was sweet!

    Between work and moving, I'm basically only good for the odd backing track for a bit. Someone double up for me!
