VOTING LIST FEW COMMENTS BELOW

Hello guys !

1) MSX Games Winner

For the 1st time we had an equality on the MSX contest so SlashBib & Thecoolestnerdguy both won :D

Here are their entries:

- Night Fall (Holly's Theme) - SlashBib, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_sZMYZBBXM&feature=youtu.be

- Castlevania Flute Duet - TheCoolestNerdGuy https://soundcloud.com/josu-ferreira-de-oliveira/castlevania-flute-duet

With his victory Slashbib has become the winner of the 2015 cover championship, indeed next contests will give a maximum of 12 points, x2 => 24points but SlashBib has 28 more than the 2nd, so nobody can beat him ^

Here is the championship edited: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17FhJ8tZf0TJYA-GHYG78v4lRyVUMiPEC...

I still have no idea what the prize for the TOP3 of the championship will be, if you guys have idea let me know.

2) New Contest

The 2 winners decided together to pick "Metroidvania games" as the theme for the November contest, it includes not only castlevania or metroid franchise but also all the games with the same system. You have until the 27th of this month to nter, it must be a new recording, as always =)

Btw as the new album is "horror" if the song you plan to cover for this contest fits the horror theme too you can use it for both, the contest AND the album =)

Thanks guys for entering, 12 great songs this month, again you rock :D

So i was really hesitating between 4 songs and it was hard to make a top 3 because so many things are involved, like if i like the song itself or not, the quality of the mix, the quality of the playing, the originality in the instruments or arrangement...

- 1st) SwigglesRP Spore Spawn

This is professional quality, it's deep it's brutal, the guitar is screaming, the skill the mixing... Perfect!

- 2nd) Banjo Guy Ollie Mad Forest

I love your style, how you play with all the tones of the different instruments, using them for melody or percussion, you're a one band man. also the melody is really catchy!

- 3rd) SlashBib Light of Nibel

Thanks for the discovering of this song, this is really wonderful, also you're version is way different to the original. I really loved that clean intro, your clean tones are really nice, the 2nd part was a bit less my taste (those drums needs to stop doing dum-dum-dum-dum all the time) but the melody really hits, that bridge was awesome!

And special mention for Ubaldo B, man i'm so sorry, maybe if i did my vote an other you could have been anywhere in the top 3, your jazzy part was awesome, i hope you won't be disappointed, you work really deserves to be highlighted.
