Download the modified backtrack for "Erised" by Periphery and record video and/or audio of your solo over it. From there you upload the clip to either your YouTube channel or through this app. Share your clip! The 15 entries with the most votes go through to the judges' round. Tips: Use the original lead (heard here, starting at approx. 02:06) as a foundation, but do your own thing. Technical, simple, fast, slow – it doesn't matter. The point is not to copy the original, it's to stand out. That's what will get you votes – and ultimately make you Metal Guitar God 2013. And of course, get you the grand prize at an estimated value of $4,900 (a brand new Jackson seven-string B7 Deluxe plus an all-metal software/sound package from Toontrack). Find complete info as well as second and third runner up prizes here. What are you waiting for?
