    Default Orphydian's Metal Court | Theme: Songs based on the works of Tolkien (Voting!)











    • game has 2 rounds: one for submisions and one for voting
    • in the submision round you will need to post a song to match the current theme
    • only metal songs (including post metal) are accepted (not classic rock, alternative, screamo etc.)
    • in the same time propose a theme in advance in case of winning to speed the things up
    • in the voting round you will vote each song that has been submited (no matter you submited a song or not)
    • voting goes as follow: band name-song name 1-10/current total points (ex: "Judas Priest - Diamonds and rust 8/18" if the previous voter gave it a 10)
    • the winner will be the one with the highest score and he will have the privilege to set the next theme.
    • in case of parity the winner will be the one who got the most points from the last voter and if they got the same no. of points this system will go back till the 1st voter
    • in the case of a not very precise theme, the one who set it will decide if a song matches or not and if not that participant is allowed to change his song
    • we arent decided about the duration of each round but usually they should close if there is a good ammount of songs/votes (lets say more than 8) and if not the max. is 2 days x each

    • Its not necesarily for the winner to subbmit a song at once with his theme.
    • As what "theme" means, almost anything goes from genre, year of release, instruments, lyrics theme, band name matching, lyrics matching etc. or more of these combined
    • Some reasoning or short comments for your ratings will be excellent
    • It would be ideal for your rating if you would consider both theme matching and musical value
    • Winner should also get his well deserved +REP from the rest
    • Bellow there is an interactive tool to learn more about metal music












    Web designer Patrick Galbraith has built the Map Of Metal -an interactive tool for exploring the world of metal. The map shows how the various subgenres of metal are connected, provides descriptions of the various subgenres (culled from Wikipedia) and plays full track examples of each type of music (drawn from Youtube). The map has a funky design sense that adds to the fun. Patrick uses denim, patches of leather, chains, threads, band-aids, buttons, pins and a whole lot of skulls to knit the whole visualization together. There’s lots of information crammed into this hand made visualization. There are about a hundred metal genres represented, era, connections, influences, and lots of music. Each genre is represented by a dozen or so representative artists and tracks. It plays full tracks so the music never stops while you are exploring.The Map Of Metal is good fun. Worth checking out.

    CLICK THE PICTURE !

    How long must the drum fiddle be in the start, for the song to be accepted?

    Doesnt need to be in the start. Just post a metal song in which drumming perfomance definetely stands out ( plays the first fiddle = a figure of speech meaning that)
    . And btw drum improvizations or a complete blast song from beggining till the end doesnt qualify.
