Hey UG.... I've got a pair of singing recordings (pretty meh audio quality, but I think I mixed it pretty well.) It'll take less the a minute to listen to them.

Psychosocial-Slipknot
Savior-Rise Against

Take a look on my profile:

I'll gladly look at your covers if I can actually offer constructive help on them.

i dont know the second song just the first one... In my opinion I dont think its good.. Seems pretty flat vocally...no emotion.. just singing doesnt do it.. gotta put somethin of yourself in there. Thats just my opinion.. I'm a singer so I can just offer what i have .. BTW how did you record your vocals.. I havent that slightest clue on how to do it .. any help would be cool.. thanks.. Good try tho... I give you props
GETCHA PULL MUTHAFUKA!!

Well, like I said, the mic is pretty meh. It's not great at all. I'll make sure to work on the emotion thing, but in this case I swear a good chunk of its the mic.

I just used Audacity man, nothing special there. Thanks for the reply though

I understand what dimebag is saying to a degree, but hardly.
Now, Psychosocial was probably better then Corey Taylor could do live :P, but it seemed a little shaky and almost like you were trying to replicate it. Savior sounded really good I thought, your voice has a good tone imo. I guess I would suggest singing without the song playing, or possibly with just a backing track, seeing as it can mask some of your mistakes.

I have no singing experience, so I guess I'm not the best person to ask. I also don't see what knowing the song has to do with critiquing it.

Thanks for the reply! My vocal track is louder than the original for Savior though, so I guess my voice's tone is a lot like his.

That's a good idea (singing without the track), but I'll have to hunt youtube or the like to find something to use.

As far as knowing the song: If its something like guitar, it does help a lot for trying to critique someone who's playing it note for note (which most covers tend to be on here). Singing, though, shouldn't matter too much.
