Hoo, lets see how this goes. Sad music always seems to be the easiest to start and the hardest to finish for me, should be interesting though.

You have a song that you want to use in this contest but you're not sure if you've used it in a previous contest (my apologies for not understanding correctly!)?

That's a sick tune Brody especially that opening, I can't really call it "sad" but apprehensive maybe?

Either way it's sweet

@Hashel: This is not a happy song! This is a good Song!^^ I realy like it, nice to see you again in a tune contest.
@Choogly: Thank you, I'm glad someone like it :D
@BigHead: Thank you too^^ I catched my inspiration while listening to a few Silent Hill themes. I think that's why it sounds more melancholy or apprehensive.

is there still time? i had been working on a new one, but didn't finish before i went to visit family. this was one i was gonna post if i didn't finish the other, buuuut forgot when getting ready to go.
I made this one a couple years ago for blood omnicide, a 3d remake of the first legacy of kain game. the idea was writing more music that fit the game, so tracks didn't get rehashed as much. this was for the game over screen.

Noble Death

edit: apparently never clipped off the end to make it loopy.
also it appears 4/5 of us were depressed 2 years ago but not no mo' :P

Here we go! It's judging time! I'm going to keep the comments super brief, just as I kept the description brief. :3

Brody - Sorrow: Very nice, Sir Brody! It does indeed make me think of Silent Hill :)

Hashel - Sadness: This very nice, Hashel! Glad to see ya in a contest! :-)

Jit - Lost in Remembrance: My, my! Very nice, Jit!

BigHeadClan - Lost Voyager: Very nice! Peaceful, too.

XVWAWA - Noble Death: A very nice piece you've got here! Dark and sorrowful. Foreboding.

And now for the winner of this contest. I know I pretty much said "very nice" on all of the pieces here, but they are all very nice! Maybe I just like all music no matter what? I dunno lol! But you all did a great job, even those that brought their piece from the icy depths of the past ;) My least favorite part about contests is judging but I guess it must be done. So, the winner of this contest is........... [Still relistening...this is difficult! XD... Why must you all make this so difficult! XD] 10-15 minutes later! The winner is BigHeadClan! Congratulations! You did a very good job. You all made choosing a winner really difficult. In my mind you are all winners! But the rules only allow one lol. GREAT JOB EVERYONE AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SORROW!

There were some nice entries in this contest! :-D

When I saw this I was thinking of entering because I've been working on sort of a somber song.
I wrote it while thinking about those I've lost and it's like a positive energy that I'm sending portraying the optimism I have in seeing them agian somewhere somehow.

It starts kind of sad then works into a more serene mood. So I wasn't sure if it fit the criteria haha

Maybe a suggestion to BigHeadClan for the next Tune Contest theme(if you don't have anything particular in mind already) would be like a climbing out of despair theme. A song that starts dark or sad and morphs into a lighter mood? Idk just a suggestion so I can submit my song :) haha

So yes the next theme is "hope". And I will be posting it sometime Thursday or Friday.

@Hashel Thanks, and honestly I was expecting Broly to have this one although everyone's was damn good. It weird all of my submissions that I'm not quite happy with have won.... maybe I should start half-assing stuff more?

I feel the same as the rest of you on that. I guess no matter how shitty you think something is there will always be someone who likes it. I think that's a good thing. Makes us less depressed lol. Maybe XD
