Tornado of Solos 2011 Announcement

We are now announcing the Tornado of Solos for 2011!

The Tornado of Solos is an occasional DoD tradition where artists are encouraged / demanded to bring their technical prowess on their instrument, duking it out over a particular song!

For this competition, all entrants must cover the song Dwelling of Doom from the NES game Castlevania 2.  You can hear it here on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dw5kfLskbw.

Entries will be judged by both popular vote and a special panel of three judges.  The results of both will be tallied separately.

The judges will use the following categories to judge the entries:

  • Technicality of performance
  • Composition / Arrangement
  • Production (mixing / mastering)

The goal is to make something awesome and shreddy.  You don't have to play guitar to enter this; technical performance on any instrument works.

The due date is November 15, 2011.
