I bring you September's theme:
"Anger Management" you say? What does that me- ok I think we all know what that means lol..
Well with everyone going back to school/work/prostitution I am sure there is a lot of angst and bottled up emotions - so let it out! Explore the avenues of angry music, ragey music, railing against politics music, all that fun jazz. The last couple of NACS were a tad, "specialized".. so I am giving people a break by making this one more general.
I will point out right now that this does NOT mean that you are allowed to post ear-rape to this contest.. sadly this has led to damaged hearing on my part on the past.. being exposed to the utter ear rape that used to be rampant on the portal. Doing so will disqualify you from this contest.
this contest is rather general so there isn't really much to disqualify a person over. If you have a song from the past that you think may also fit I will also allow you to submit it as a second entry. This ensures that you still have to post an entry made during this month.
I ain't providing examples for this.. if in this age you have never heard an angry song then you are an amish child and should not be on the internet.
Covers or remixes are NOT allowed for this contest, unless you are covering or remixing another users song that they submitted to the portal in the past, or your own song that you may have submitted in the past, as this applies to the "share alike" license of newgrounds. We would prefer to see you come up with something on your own - carve your own path to greatness!
Production ALWAYS plays an important role in these contest. This means stressing quality and pressuring the contestants to put as much effort, knowledge and talent that they possibly can into their submissions.
1) If you use real instruments - make sure they sound sweet!
2) If you use a real vocalist - make sure the vocals sounds sweet!
3) If you use Nuendo or East west (which I know 90% of you that go down that route will) - for the love of god - mix it properly!
anyone who records their own vocals which aren't utter screamy garbage and uses them in their song, or collabs with another who provides vocals - you get major props from us!
Voices can be used, provided that:
1) It is not sampled from copyrighted recordings.
2) It is 100% your own recording and creation.
3) You can ask another artist or group to provide vocals, as long as all material is newly created for your submission, and you provide the details of the vocalist(s), who they are.
Recordings of instruments are great! Make sure you list any you used in your song description, and if anyone else helped, list them as well! As a result if someone assists you with instruments you may include them as part of your song - just make sure to mention them in your song description. The prize however will only go to the user that submitted the song.
All tracks must be in by the deadline. Please check your Newgrounds in-boxes regularly. If you have a problem with reaching the deadlines, please contact us as soon as possible, and we will review your case.
Submissions must not contain any material deemed offensive.
Further questions pertaining to official NACs can be found in the NAC General Discussion Thread
Last but not least, remember to have fun! Don't get too competitive and/or elitist, or I may have to bash some heads! :P
Angry musicians, this is your time to shine!
From now till 11:59 PM EST Sunday September 24th: Submissions will be accepted.
Tuesday September 26th: The 8 finalists will be announced, and their submissions will be closely scrutinized and reviewed by our finalist judges. NO BUTTHURT WHINING PLEASE.
also no pulling a Kanye West please.
Monday October 1st: The top 4 will be announced by our finalist judges, as well as frontpaged the next month at some point by one of the audio mods (frontpage not guaranteed & results may be delayed a day or two in case of emergency, or me having a good enough excuse to delay it - like, say, oct 1st being my birthday - you've been warned.)
also only songs submitted uniquely for the contest month will be accepted (you cannot have one for that month and it also submitted 2 years ago as well for example, or have a repeat nac entry submitted from last year) for your FIRST song, second song however you may.
The finalist judges for the "Anger Management" NAC will be...
To be determined - I will be taking offers from anyone interested - so PM me if you are interested. We prefer judges who have been around the block a few times on newgrounds - as evidenced by the all-star lineup we had in the past - so this month we are looking for NG veterans of all kinds. I will keep you posted.
Also Tylandril (aka Realmguys aka Tyler) as well as Evil-Dog have offered to be standby judges - (however Realmguys cannot make it this month due to personal reasons so we do have some NAC Judge spots open) - which means they are free for me to use in the finalist judging if I feel their skills are appropriate for the contest judging-wise :) They will be most likely helping in this contest.
If you want to be a sweeper judge, please talk to me.
Also keep in mind that as a finalist judge you only have ONE WEEK to judge the 8 subamissions, so if this is an issue for you, or you think you might not be able to pull through, then PLEASE DON'T OFFER!
We will pick the top three from the 8 finalists.
1st Place: $50.00 store credit, weekly feature, reviewed by all judges, 1st place sig (optional)
2nd Place: $40.00 store credit, weekly feature, reviewed by all judges, 2nd place sig (optional)
3rd Place: $30.00 store credit, weekly feature, reviewed by all judges, 3rd place sig (optional)
4th Place: weekly feature, reviewed by all judges
5th Place: reviewed by all judges
6th Place: reviewed by all judges
7th Place: reviewed by all judges
8th Place: reviewed by all judges
This is easy. Just simply post your song link into the text window like so...
An industrial step to regaining my credibility as an original artist on this site...
and more importantly - HAVE FUN!!!
Ohhhh freedom!! In this months NAC we have 20 times the freedom we had in last month and thats definitely a good thing for our creative minds!
Good luck everyone!
No mather how good you are sometime, somewhere, somehow...
This month's theme is surely rocking!
Reality is an illusion caused by lack of alcohol.
Gobble is banned so he cannot formally submit his piece but I will be doing it in his honor.
The Scottish are utterly deranged when they are angry at you!
Don't piss off the Scottish, and when they start playing bagpipes, you'd better run!
If I have the time, I'm in
I know because I wanted to play it, but turned out my phone was not compatible.
Yeah some good old 90's grundge would be amazing!

Good luck judging all these, you are going to be an angry man after a day of these tracks!

Here is my official entry to NAC12. Its not in your face angry or anything like that, I thought I'd instead of just interpreting anger into a generic "untss untss untss" track (No offensive anyone), I'd put some emotion into it. Thats kinda how I make most my songs.
Anyway, hope you enjoy everyone.

Ha yea...I really did just go all out. I know its nothing amazing, but hey, its me ^^
I remember last contest I entered in some shitty Audacity thing and it was pretty embarassing, but then again I kind of deserved it. Anyways, this is my first song full song using Fl studios and I think that even if it might not be great it is definitely an improvement from my previous work. And I am happy with that!
Wiii finally got an excuse to sit my ass and write something, and on the day of my birthday too. So here goes my submission:
oh NICE! i have been waiting for a good reason to go apeshit. i need to get it out of my system once in a while you know, between all those blissfull tunes!
i am so joining this!
