    Hi, I have an audio recording/mixing class and we've entered the pratical lessons phase where we actually mix stuff (it was all theory before that) and I thought I'd tackle something my own music sounds like, which is very similiar to SX's "Pharaoh".

    So, what I'm gonna do is, record guitar, bass, keys and drums for "Pharaoh", and mix it up to a song. But I don't have any vocals and I sure as hell can't sing, so I thought maybe someone could record me theirs and let me use them.

    Anyone?

    Edit: You don't have to do any back vocals, I don't think there are any anyway, only some harmonies perhaps, but the lead vocals are the most important. Anything else is just luxury. The file(s) should be wav or aiff. I guess you can upload them on rapidshare, or let me know if you don't know where to put them.

    Find that guy who sings in his car on YouTube - he's got a killer voice. Just search for Symphony X vocal covers or something and you should be able to find him.

    Honestly if you can get the rest of the song down, I can sing it if you need me to or can't get the Unflexable Grace guy to do it. Pharaoh is one of the way easier SX songs to sing so it's no problem. I'm not as James Labrie as he is, I sing with more of a grit like Allen...and no I'm not terrible lol. Anyways let me know if you want.

    I wish I could sing with some grit... I've only got the raspless, quieter type of vocals. I can sing on key and all that, but SymX is out of my field :(

    Yeah...sorry for those who've been waiting I have been ultra busy and have been meaning to ask, I did it a few ways and want to know how you want it done. Me on camera w/ music...without music? Just audio w/ or w/o music? Your call but I did track it last night quite well IMO, but we will see what everyone else thinks lol..

    ...oh yeah and did you need it in a certain format or anything?

    For some reason Russell's voice on this track has always made me start cracking up during the chorus. "Phaaaiiaros comto faand you whoo daers to invade hiys sacrediinnergraawwnd. Gaads ov the Naaal aahraas to scccgGGROOIIINDD yeewww ddaaaaiiiiwwwnnnnnnn!!!!!!!!!!

    holy shit. I just logged in for the first time in 7 years. totally forgot I made this thread.
    never got around to do Pharaoh, tho, we had some changes and we had to mix some existing tracks instead.
