To celebrate that this is the 20th challenge in the 6 years we have been holding them we are going to do something special.

20 minute long songs


Super simple, pick any metal genre you want or you are comfortable with and compose a nice 20 minute long song. The meat of the song has to be the majority of the time length. Basically it means if you have a 20 minute song and 5 minutes of feedback/drone/ambience to start off and a lead out of the same...you are going to have to make your song longer to compensate for that. Meat= riffs, compositions... we aren't trying to put anyone to sleep, so do your best to keep it interesting for everyone who will want to listen and review.

So for such a huge challenge and trying to take into account of all the holidays the length to compose and record your songs is extended so allow for life to take place. Double note: All songs have to be written/composed/recorded within the timeframe given. Do not ask if you can submit some earlier stuff you recorded before hand, we are not interested, I am not interested.

And to sweeten the post some (or really sour it) I'll toss some albums off Speed Ritual to 2 participants that manage to complete their songs. I'll do the same as clogged and throw names in a hat and just pull out two.

Start: Oct. 1st
End- Dec. 10th

Welp, no way I'm writing a 20 minute song but if anyone wants any super sweet pads, atmospherics, or electronic stuff I've got a boss new synthesizer and would be down to contribute.

I'll put my name in as well. Might not end up finishing it 'cause I've got a few new band things starting and might be fucking off to America for a while in November, but we'll see what happens.

I can contribute vocals! Screams, growls, post-metal yells, and I'll gladly even give cleans a shot if you need them mixed in with harsh stuff. If you're interested, I can provide some samples.

Madness. But what the hell, I want to try this challenge. Maybe I can think something to make the song stay interesting that long.

Funeral doom would be too easy genre for this, one would only need to make a normal 5 minute song and play it with 25% tempo. :D

Yeah, thought it was still September for most of the day... but then started writing the song after realizing it was October. Have 3 mins done so far and am hoping to do at least a minute a day until it's done.

It's never too late! you have been added. and damn clogged that's a great start! I'm still debating. I know easily I can do it with yzordderrex but that would be too easy. I'm thinking something a bit more difficult to take on.

Thanks SLK!
I will probably write something more experimental than I usually do, with clean vocals (well, my voice is pretty harsh, but I will try to get it as clean as possible).

Sounds awesome! I plan on brainstorming on it tonight and hopefully start getting something together this weekend.

I planned this out, I was going to do a minute a day, and it went well for the first two days, but now I have whooping cough. I've fallen behind by a day (it's the 3rd in Australia), and I ideally want a buffer of 2-3 days so I have lots of time.

Interested to see what other people come up with.

Even if you hadn't gotten sick and finished by the end of the month, that would have meant you'd have almost 40 days yet to still work on the track. Plenty of time to go, Sir!

Yea I wanted it to be plenty enough fair for circumstances like that. I've narrowed my scope slightly. But that is all.

I hear you. It's the way it works for all of us probably.

At first it was going to be an epic masterpiece with a full 80 piece orchestra, howling guitar riffs and blast beats everywhere. Now it's just a 3-5-7 chord progression with a bit of delay on the lead guitar. I know exactly what you mean. :D

I only meant that I narrowed it to possibly 2 of my different bands instead of the 5-6 that I could possibly have done it under. I'm not even talking about anything musically at the moment. I'm leaning more towards doing it under Flittering or Uzumaki at the moment. I haven't done anything under either lately.

I was thinking Yzordderrex, Angl De La Mort, Subterranean Birthright along side of them earlier.

Take all of your bands, and then just take the first three letters of each and create a superband. :D

Brilliant. Now you just have to grab a pen and paper, have a seizure, and you'll have yourself a logo!

Not a bad idea. You could probably turn that into a business.

Well, I've heard things where individuals use body fluids directly from the source to create their 'art.' Yay for that I suppose.

Hopefully people are making some progress! I've written out 13:39 so far and have almost another minute to write out. Taking a few days off before working on the ending.

Also just to be clear, the song has to be EXACTLY 20 minutes long, right?
