Do you think you have what it takes to impress Matt Pike with your guitar skills?
Well, now’s your chance!
We’ve teamed up with eOne Music and Dunlop to bring you this sweet guitar solo competition from High On Fire. The rules are simple: download the backing track for their song “The Black Plot” — from their new album Luminiferous, out now via eOne — record yourself playing an ORIGINAL solo (audio only, no video required), then upload your track to our contest Soundcloud group. You can also upload it to your own Soundcloud page and link it using the button at the top of the Soundcloud contest page. The solo starts at 3:56 into the song and goes all the way to the very end.
The deadline to upload your solo is one month from today: July 25th at 11:59pm EST.
Play all your best licks, because it’s not just anyone who’ll be judging your skills: the sole power of judgment lies in the hands of none other than High on Fire lead singer/guitarist Matt Pike himself! He’s a man of taste and class (so what if he doesn’t like to wear a shirt? He’s just going where the puck is going to be, not where it is.)
And should the king of doom bestow upon your solo his infernal blessing, what then is your prize?
