I hope you guys are all progressing well too.
Glad to see you're progressing! I'm making a risky move and experimenting with a whole new genre lol. Hope it doesn't cost me the contest! Good luck :D

I'll have to clear my mind and continue later. I really want this song to be the best I ever did, so I can't settle for any generic/weak melody.

How much judging should a judge judge if a good judge could judge a judge?

Quick question, I am writing up the idea and lyrical content for my entry at the moment. What is the most I can get away with in this competition in regards to how offensive/extreme the lyrics can get?

Thanks.

Sorry for the slow response. I've been traveling today. So, there are no established rules for this in the competition or in the AP as a whole (believe me - I checked), so, at the very least, you can curse all you want. That said, I'd be careful about insulting specific groups of people (religious, ethnic, racial, or otherwise) and discussing/encouraging illegal activities. If you want to write a hateful/angry song directed at a make-believe ex-girlfriend or something, though, I have no problems with that. ;) Just try to be aware of your audience (the AP community as well as the judges) and the purpose or message of your song as they'd perceive it. ;)

im not going to be able to work on the track for most of the days leading up until the due date so this might seem a bit schizophrenic and directionless

Trying to make something extremly hard-hitting and dancable at the same time while in a weirdo-sounding timing.
It's slowly forming. Probably one of my more technically-challenging pieces to date so far.

I know I owe you guys some reviews, but please wait a little longer. I promise I'll make them as detailed and helpful as I can, but now I need to prepare for some college visits/interviews I have tomorrow. I was planning on reviewing them tonight, too, but my flight into Boston got delayed because of bad weather. I will review them tomorrow. I promise. ;(

...and if I'm missing anyone else here who I promised reviews/score reports to, please let me know. Thank you! ^^

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to get one or not, but if I was, then it would be nice to have it :)

Good luck everyone.

It's OK, you don't have to rush at all, it's just if you want to. I already got feedback from one of the judges which was extremely valuable.

I can review whoever's submission for this, just PM me or something. :v

I'll probably be harsher than the other judges, but that's not to say I won't give reasoning for it.

Scrap my origonal plan of going for a slower and more hatred-infused Aggrotech track, i'ma going full-blown Symphonic Metal for this one (with both Slam Death & Black Metal influence of course). Just gotten the first 30 seconds of it done and it sounds awesome so far!

Thank you. Haha it's been awhile since I've touched Shreddage or SD2 for a proper Metal track so it's a little bit like a blast-in-the-past kind of thing for me to have some fun with. Helps my vocal-work is stronger than ever for this kind of challenge.

When I was listed in the all stars group in the last thread, I thought that meant I made it into the competitiion, lol. I have been forcing myself to work on a new song for the next round despite having no other motivation besides the compeition. I guess I will take break from the song now. Good luck to everyone who made it in!

Yeah, sorry. You see: there wasn't really any organized system for reviewing in the last round. I simply encouraged the judges to review the submissions they were scoring if they wanted to, but many didn't have time. I reviewed ALL of the submissions I scored (in Underdogs and All-Stars group), and @Troisnyx reviewed most of hers, but they were also only in All-Stars. Unfortunately, the Prof. Amateurs kind of got the short end of the stick on that one, but I'll make sure that changes for this round. ;) If you guys are lucky, I can review a few from the Prof. Amateurs before I leave for work tomorrow. ^^
