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.
