Contest: Sing Your Own Twelve Foot Ninja Song, Win a Bunch of Recording Software from Toontrack!

Twelve Foot Ninja guitarist Steve “Stevic” MacKay is one of those endlessly creative individuals capable of crapping out extraordinary music by accident. And that’s to say nothing of his phenomenal work on the band’s albums, which were most certainly not borne of any accident.

To wit: Stevic recently sat down to fool around with the new Latin Cuban Percussion pack from audio software wizards Toontrack, ended up bringing in the verse from one of the band’s best-known songs, “Coming for You,” rejiggered and reorganized it all a bit, and voila! With some help from TFN co-guitarist Rohan “Ro” Hayes, a new song was born! In typical Twelve Foot Ninja style, it incorporates a whole bunch of influences into one maelstrom that somehow just makes sense; frankly it’s a surprise the band never experimented with Latin rhythms in their songs before this.

Stevic’s genius can now be for your gain: MetalSucks has teamed up with Twelve Foot Ninja and Toontrack for a contest in which we’re asking entrants to write and record their own vocals over Stevic’s new creation. Lyrics, vocal style, melody, composition — that’s all entirely up to you!

One grand prize winner will receive a prize package including:

  • EZDrummer 2
  • Latin Cuban Percussion EZX pack
  • A professional mix of your final track by Forrester Savell (TFN, Karnivool, Make Them Suffer, SikTh, Dead Letter Circus, etc.)

One runner-up will win a copy of EZkeys plus the Cuban drum pack, and an honorable mention contestant will get a copy of EZdrummer 2.

All you have to do to enter is fill out the form below after recording your own version! Submissions are welcome via Soundcloud, YouTube, Bandcamp or any other platform. Entries will be open until 11:59pm EST on Sunday, November 1. Stevic himself will be judging all entries. Get creative and make ’em good!
