    Updated the entries post with deepstrasz' WIP.

    Well does resemble something steampunk-ish! Sincerely all your entries fit the theme, because steampunk in music has no characteristic sound, it's more of a... thematic.

    If we search for steampunk music on youtube we'll see things ranging from regular orchestral music (with titles like Steam Airships or whatever) to some alternative rock bands. There's also some 19th century-inspired stuff (like dark cabaret, as I mentioned the other day).

    Heya guys! So I honestly haven't done too much here except for some fun little terraining story-telling type stuff. But Veronnis (my brother who you may know better) told me about the music contests on here and I dig makin' music so I wanted to enter something here since Warcraft is life lol. Here is my WIP called "The Grand Tour". It's made in FL Studio 12 using the EastWest Sounds Online sample library and depicts the more adventurous and light-hearted portions of the steampunk "feel" (whatever that's really supposed to be). It's been real fun to make! =D

    Alright, I am officially in this. Here's my wip. I've also attached my current project, just in case anyone wants to see what it's like.

    Guitars and bass are recorded by me, and I am typing in the drum midi, not using beats.

    This is just a start so a lot is bound to change. I will probably keep the theme of a beating machine heart. I want to make the composition very percussive, with a lot of asynchronous rhythms, to simulate a machine workflow.

    EDIT: I posted a new WIP, raper can increment file names, so I can keep multiple versions. Machine Heart.mp3 is the first version I posted, Machine Heart-001.mp3 is the second.

    Still in progress. Mastering/equalizing is off at this point.
    Added stuff where the first WiP ended instead of on everything.

    I would enter but I have some heavy studying to do until mid February.
    I'm not judging before then either, so you might as well extend if you can't find anyone else.

    I hope ya'll like death metal. It's not thematically steam punk, but I briefly imagined the possibility of a macabre and retrofuturist black market organ trade. Something in the vein of Repo! but more vulgar and philistine.

    @RiotZ Sounds wicked! Now I'm in the mood for some Bolt Thrower!


    Also, here's my second WIP. I'm still having fun with it.

    So much electric guitar for a pre-electric era music. Awesome. @deepstrasz see, I was not the only one.

    What's your point? I guess most of you are metal inclined, so...
