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.
