    Was bored and thought I would try my luck at a rough cover of Paradise Lost.

    It's only one take and I was rushed but I thought it'd be fun for maybe some feedback for future covers or something...

    Here ya go!

    pretty good man. more.. technique sounds fine, not as much emotion tho. that's a bitch to do tho :) this is prolly the only SX song i could sing myself :p all Russel's stuff is usually to high, or in a dead space in range

    Thanks a bunch for the comments and critique. Helps me improve greatly.

    Here's another one I did, a few rough parts because I didn't warm up my voice but I think its alright.

    Rediscovery Part II.

    Not bad! Biggest problem is that on a lot of the big notes it sounds like you've got nowhere left to go whereas RA is only at mid-throttle. Mind you, if the worst criticism I can come up with is "You're not Russell Allen" then you're doing about 1,000x better than I can do! ;)

    Let me qualify what I mean though. At 1:08 on PL with the "love must die" lyric, you sing "die" too strongly, there's too much dynamic difference between there and the proceeding lines. So it sounds like you're having to belt out a diva note in order to sing it, whereas RA's version is much more effortless. I hope I've explained it without trying to sound like a know-all??

    Really nice. I really like the headvoice parts and wide vibrato. Maybe use them more and forget about trying to imitate Russell? ;)
