Okay! So, it looks as though the information may have been leaked early by a certain someone, but we've got the results in a bit early from the Round of 16! If you need a quick refresher on all things NGADM, head over HERE.

At this point, you all know the drill. Whip up a brand new track within the two-week deadline, completely from scratch, and submit it here to the thread! Easy peasy, right?

Once again, we give thanks to our benevolent judges, @Bosa, @ChronoNomad, @ADR3-N, @Samulis, @SkyeWint, and @TaintedLogic. Without these folks, this wouldn't be happening at all.

A big round of applause for @LucidShadowDreamer, our multi-talented Scribe who continues to keep track of all the contest comings and goings HERE. Likewise to @LunacyEcho for compiling ridiculous amounts of statistical data and @Ceevro for our flippin' epic NGADM 2017 logo (see below)! And hey, don't forget that you can find the previous round's playlist HERE.

And a very special thanks to YOU! Whether you're actively participating or merely checking out the proceedings, thank you for being a part of the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch.

The Quarterfinals are beginning now, and here are the match-ups:

@1f1n1ty VS @etherealwinds

@FinnMK VS @midimachine

@CloakedSoup VS @steelside

@McGorilla42 VS @RetromanOMG

As some of you probably already know, the bracket has already been updated. So if you haven't seen it yet, bounce on over and marvel at the sheer bracketed awesomeness therein!

In case anyone is wondering, @Samulis has been incredibly busy speeding from one end of the galaxy to the other, moving all of his worldly belongings, and we ultimately decided to give him a break this round. It's no surprise that he's completely exhausted. He'll be back in the Quarterfinals to lay down the law once again!

Oh, and here's a fresh Countdown Clock for everyone! The fearsome fortnight has officially begun.

This has been a truly crazy round, and it isn't going to get any easier now. Here goes nothing!

Like always, if you made it into the Quarterfinals but you cannot continue for any reason, please let us know as soon as humanly possible!

Then we give another deserving competitor the chance to return. And you'll be a hero. How cool is that?

So...uh...what do you all want done with the contest art poster? It measures 2 feet by 2 feet, and it's rattle-cans on posterboard. I still have it, so what should I do with it?

Huge congrats to everyone. We said goodbye to a lot of people who still had really badass tracks. Looking forward to the remaining competitors' hard work over the next 2 weeks. :)

@ChronoNomad Sorry for shirking my duty to post this thread. I didn't know we were releasing the results early. I should've PM'd you last night.

I'm really glad to have been a part of this contest. Thanks to Chrononomad for making it happen, and sorry to midimachine for not giving him my best. Heh, I bet not many industrial tracks made it this far into previous contests, at least :)

Gosh. Well done to everyone this round. And well played, ThaPredator! Damn good score :O Sad to see Johnfn falling out...but you faced my other favourite person, EW, so I'm happy for you! Your songs were both incredible and I'm genuinely really upset that you were paired up against each other :( I'm shocked and happy with my score. I hope my next one is as good.

Good luck for this round, everyone!

Personally, I think everyone still left in the competition is worth a follow.

If the offer is still on the table, I say we wait until the contest wraps up at the end of October and mail it to the 1st place winner! Provided that they don't live someplace where it costs a mint to send, of course.

Sound like a plan?

Well, LSD just performed for Jordi for this one piece and they aren't doing the comp together. :P His playing was fantastic though
