A combination of both would be nothing short of a musical orgasm

Haha I would never be able to sing like him, likeeeeeeee ever.

My current Metal entry I'm doing at the moment unintentionally sounds like something I'd expect to hear from Skinless. May have to stir things up a little bit and make this track abit more original sounding haha.

OMAGAD I NEARLY DIED.
3:16 into my project, vocals, everything, about to start a solo then my computer crashed during a save because of my UX2. Rebooted... Corrupted project file! AH!
Luckily Reaper makes backups every 10 actions. Dodged a bullet there! *wipes sweat off brow*

Backups have saved me so many times it's scary. Always enable the backup feature, folks!
Also, keep a backup of your PC on an external drive and update it every 3 months. You'll be happy you did one day.

OMAGAD dying again.
Just broke the main fan on my PC case like a moron (opened it while it was on... feeling stupid now). I'm buying a new one but it won't arrive before Friday. I can probably use my PC with the broken fan, it just wobbles a bit, but I don't want to overdo it. Luckily my song is 98% finished, just a few mixing tweaks to do.

*cries*

Wow, that sounds terrible...if it makes you feel more comfortable working on your project, I'll be willing to make an exception to the rules and give you (and only you) a 24-hour extension. If your fan isn't in by Saturday, we can talk about it. This contest has been tough for you, hasn't it? First the whole I'm-judging-Troisnyx-and-she's-judging-me thing and now THIS? :O

@AnalogByNature That should be fine. You have until Friday to submit it anyway, so don't worry. ;)

Go into your power options, lower your Minimum Processor state down to around 5% and pray that'll keep CPU temps down untill you get your replacement fan.

Hope you are getting an awesome performing case fan like a Noctua PWM or similar.

Vouch for Noctua PWM. Don't need expensive gear, a NF-A14 FLX is the quality choice.

Got this cheap one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B002QVLBM2/ref=pe_385721_37986871_TE_item
Apparently it's quiet too, and it had free postage/packaging. If I need another it's no big loss to replace this one in the future.

So the Metal track wasn't exactly a failure but it isn't good enough for me to be satisfied to enter it into the NGAU.
I've pretty much started from scratch a new Electro Industrial track which sounds technical and chilling in it's presentation but I now have (after reducing work hours, sleep and family visiting) around 26 Man-Hours to get the whole idea down before the deadline.

Hopefully i can get this done before the deadline (I should be able to). So far very pleased with the Suicide Commando-styled Snare I've recreated from scratch through multiple layers of Distortion, Reverbs and sample export cuts etc. Some layered atmosphere, distorted orchestral instrumentation and some more experimental voice work to be featured.

Cool. I made it into the Amateur group. :)

I'm working on a track right now.

As far as 'original composition' goes, does that mean I can't manipulate samples?

I think it means you need to create the melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic parts of the song on your own :O

i dont think sampling would be illegal so long as you don't intend to use an well known loop/song

As far as I know, samples are completely fine. The key is to use them in a way nobody else has before. I'm sure you knew that already haha. Manipulate away! I do hope you'll use completely original elements as well though.
