The Cover Challenge #3: Character Themes (VOTING TIME !!!! Deadline => 30 August)

Thanks to everyone who voted for me and of course, great job to all the participant. All the entries were just awesome ! So here's the rules and the theme for this month ! =)

1) Concept
Each month a theme will be decided (by the winner of the previous challenge) and people will make 1 cover based on this theme. At the end of the month anyone on gametabs will be allowed to vote for the best cover. At the end i'll make a .zip file with all the entries, a cover with simple colors, title and logo + credit file with links to all of your youtube/soundcloud channels.

2) Rules to enter
NEW RECORDING ONLY! The song you are using MUST be put online AFTER the start of the challenge.
No length restriction.
No style or instrument restriction, it could be a guitar cover, piano cover, remix with VST, orchestral arrangement etc.
Only open for Gametabs members !
And of course your cover must fits the theme =)

3) Rules about the vote
During the last 4-5 days of the month anyone can vote (Gametabs members only), you can vote even if you didn't entered.
How to vote? You can give points to 3 songs, 1 points, 2 points and 3 points for you favorite. At the end of the vote the cover with the more points will win. You can vote on the forum or on Private Message with the organizer (me, for this time).

4) What do i win?
The winner will chose the theme of the next challenge and his video/soundcloud will be posted on the Gametabs FB page to give you extra views =).

5) Other rules
The organizer can enter to his own contest but if he ever wins, that will be the 2nd who will be the organizer of the next challenge. So this way it avoids the same person to organize over and over again!
The songs you are using for the Cover challenge can be used for the Gametabs main albums too!
You can't vote for yourself.
It's not a problem if 2 people cover the same song.

THE THEME IS... Character Themes! Here's few examples you can take for this challenge :
- Aerith's Theme (Final Fantasy VII)
- Midna's Lament (TLOZ Twilight Princess)
- LeChuck's Theme (The Secret of Monkey Island)
- Old Snake Theme (Metal Gear Solid 4)
- Frog's Theme (Chrono Trigger)

Good Luck everyone !

I'mma go with Iron Blue Intention, theme of Eric Lecarde.

Also, here are some of my other favorite character themes from Castlevania, in case someone still hasn't decided yet:

  • Belmont, The Legend, theme of Trevor Belmont (so badass)
  • Battle of the Holy, theme of Christopher Belmont in Castlevania: The Adventure.
  • New Messiah, theme of Christopher Belmont in Castlevania II: Belmont's revenge (not Simon's Quest, the Gameboy one).
  • Heart of FIre, theme of Julius Belmont in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow and in Castlevania: Harmony of Despair.
  • Beginning, theme of Trevor Belmont in Akumajou Densetsu/Castelvania III.
  • Beginning, theme of Julius Belmont in Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow.
  • Leon's Theme, theme of (guess who) Leon Belmont in Castlevania: Lament of Innocence

I'd love to see someone cover one of these themes! I just love Castlevania so much!

I'll keep updating the list as we go.

Just wondering if this song from Kingdom Hearts II counts as a character theme? It's The 13th Struggle.. not an individual character theme, just one that plays whenever you fight a member of Organization 13.

@Hashel Megaman is a special case ^^ Most of the OST is composed by stage themes but really specific to a character, so, I think these themes fit to the contest =)

Since this month I'm uploading a lot, it might not make it till later (August 26th release maybe).

It's a solo guitar arrangement and probably not the most complex one in the history of solo guitar arrangements. But it's the taking part that counts, right? ;)
