So yeah, it has been a while.

As many of you know, Dwelling of Duels was established at first to determine just who had the most smoking fingers in the scene. To find out who was the fastest, sharpest, most \m/>.<\m/ player out there. The first duel never quite proved that, and later came the Clockwork Competition in which virt and house both took top places, one in popular vote and one in judge's decision.

The follow-up Tornado of Solos special competitions lacked that special something, and the full fvcking fvry of the first never quite came around again.

But, it has been a while.

I am now announcing the 2011 Tornado of Solos - to find out which of the new blood of DoD is willing to throw down and make the most awesome metal mix of one song and prove themselves worthy of the title "shredder".

Here's the basics:

All entries done will be of one specific song - everyone will be covering the same thing to see who can make the 'best version' of a song.

The goal is to show off your guitar skill-z, burn up the frets and wow everyone. People should come away from listening to it with singed ears, a beating heart full of metal and a secret depression that they will never ever be able to achieve your skillz.

The entries will be judged by both popular vote as one category, and (provided we get a couple more judges to say ok) three anonymous judges picked from some of the best guitarists and musicians in the scene.

Judges will judge based on technicality, composition, and production.

The due date for entries will be November 15th, giving eight full weeks to complete entries. That should be plenty of time (I hope) for most anyone interested to pump out a single song.

I invite you all to generate some (friendly) competition and nudge people who might be interested in doing something like this.








Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand the song selected for the 2011 DoD ToS is:

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

you will die of sodium poisoning before you ever take me with enough grains of salt.


Perhaps the same can be said of all birth control. But enough posting- have at you!

A piano is fine too.

Actually it'd be cool to have a piano-off. It's unfortunate that there are so few who play.

You fuckin' people. DON'T YOU KNOW I'M BUSY?!?!?
