Winter Crescent – Battle of Egos Epic Giveaway! (UPDATE: Contest Over Early: Read for Details of Future Contest)
The Battle of Egos Epic Giveaway has been ended early. All winners have received their prizes, and all remaining prizes are being pooled together for another contest at a later date. This will be another Winter Crescent-themed contest, but will be different. Keep posted to our news updates to learn more info when the time comes. Thanks to all who participated in the Battle of Egos Epic Giveaway!
Today, Greek progressive metal band Winter Crescent releases their first song on Rock Band Network, “Battle of Egos Part I.” It is available in standard and 2x Bass Pedal versions for 80 Microsoft Points each, and will be joined in the near future by the rest of the songs on their “Battle of Egos” album.
This song is pretty challenging, and the band hopes to have it available for PS3 users to enjoy. In fact, the band would love nothing more than to have their music on PS3. To do that, it must sell well on Xbox (at least, we know that helps somewhat). So to encourage sales and bring attention to their songs, the band is holding a series of promotions for people brave enough to tackle this song on Expert and capture it on video!
Here’s What You Could Win:
-Microsoft Points Contest!: Five people will receive 3 codes for 160 MSP each (total 480 MSP per winner). The codes will go to the first person to submit a video of themselves getting 100% on Expert for each of the following instruments: Guitar, Bass, Drums, 2x Bass Pedal Drums, Solo Vocals. Either version of the song can be used, except for Drums in which you’ll need the specific version to compete. Only one entry per instrument. The band hopes you’ll use the codes to check out their future offerings on the Rock Band Network, which will each be 80 MSP.
-Battle of Egos Album Contest!: Nine people will receive a free hard copy of the “Battle of Egos” album (ARV $10 each). To win, you must be one of the first 9 people to submit a video of yourself scoring 95% or higher on any instrument on Expert (or 90% on the 2x Bass Pedal drum chart on Expert).
-Grand Prize Contest!: The very first person to get 100% on every single instrument (Harmony not required, either standard or 2x Bass Pedal is fine for drums) in the song (known as a One-Man-Band Full Combo or OMBFC) will receive an advance promotional copy of Winter Crescent’s brand new upcoming studio album, which is currently in production and will also be coming to Rock Band Network in its entirety! This special copy will be signed by all five members of Winter Crescent as proof that it is the very first print of the album! In addition, for being such a beast, you will also get a copy of the “Battle of Egos” album and 3 codes for 160 MSP each! (Total ARV for all prizes $26) (NOTE: NEW ALBUM IS NOT COMPLETED. WINNER WILL BE SENT THE NEW ALBUM AS SOON AS IT IS FINISHED AND PRINTED.)
How to Enter the Contest:
-Purchase either “Battle of Egos Part I” or “Battle of Egos Part I (2x Bass Pedal) by Winter Crescent, available for the Xbox 360 as Rock Band Network DLC.

-Email the link to your YouTube video along with your name and mailing address (required if you enter either the Battle of Egos Album Contest or the Grand Prize Contest) to firstname.lastname@example.org. The first entry received will be the first one counted. Each entrant can only enter one of the three contests, can only submit one entry, and must declare which contest will be entered if the video qualifies for multiple contests.
If you have won an album and would like to show off your loot, send a photo of yourself with your copy of the album and Winter Crescent will post it on their Facebook page for the world to see!
The band hopes you will spread the word about the songs so PS3 players can enjoy them too, and that you will check out the entire album on Rock Band Network! Good luck to you all, and happy shredding!
