FANFARES PLEASE!

Welcome one, welcome all to the first round of the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch, also known as NGADM! After much deliberation, discussion, and indigestion (from all the stress), your judges have finally come to a decision about our contestants. And let me tell you, it was REALLY close. The submissions were of such a high quality we were blown away. Thank you for all your hard work, everyone! I was personally very please to see how much high quality work gets posted on the Audio Portal.

I am joined, this year, by @LunacyEcho, @Jacob, @Spadezer and @Bosa. Each judge brings their own speciality, tastes and experiences to the table, I'm super confident in their ability and philosophy. They have already shown they can be reliable and have put an already considerable amount of time and effort into deciding this first round's contenders. Special mention for @LunacyEcho for creating the group and pod brackets. Your attention to detail is vital!

I can't thank all of you enough for being so amazing.

Quick summary of (the upcoming) round 1:
12 sets of 3. Winner advances.
8th July - 22nd July. (2 weeks)

I figured that I would not make it, but congrats to all of those who did advance! :D

I probably hurt people's ears a bit with my submission. Probably why I didn't score well... :/

Sorry, that means you haven't made it through to the next round. Have you considered NGAUC?

Congrats to all wiling to take part in NGADM this year. I'm already excited being a judge this year, which I still can't believe that's the case. But to those who didn't make it, there was a lot of good talent. Don't be dissapointed because there was a lot of good stuff that didn't make it that I enjoyed. For some of you it doesnt mean you're completely out of the running. It's possible that some people may drop out and you could still be participating. So keep an ear out.

Best of luck to all


Don't worry, I'm judging you.

......if you're currently in NGADM. No pressure. :)

Damn! We (me and Segathi) worked so hard on our submission only to find out that inferior tracks passed the judging process and ours did not!

I am humbled to judge this year's Deathmatch, and I'm awfully excited to hear the incredible work we have in store.

Narrowing down the competing 36 was devastatingly difficult. There was an extreme abundance of talent, and a even few of my favorite auditions and artists didn't make it through. Seriously, fantastic work, everyone.

Please consider the NGUAC, if you didn't make it through. We still want to hear more from you!

Well guys, I'm looking forward to judging your submissions in the coming rounds. It may take a little more to impress me, but this has always been a brutal contest and not for the faint of heart. May the best producer win!

You mean to tell me you're not an animal? I know you've won the entire contest before and stuff, but really, BFJ...don't be so pretentious.

the "DM" stands for "deathmatch," after all
