I like it! I'm seriously thinking that maybe you can sing in your album... your voice is powerful and unique.

Now the song starts to make more sense to me. Great job!

Thanks, Gabriel! I'm not used to singing and I have not practiced it much before, so it can only become better from here, I suppose smile.gif

Keep on practicing. wink.gif

If you are trying to sing high notes, try them with head voice. Do you know how to do it?

I don't know any vocal techniques at all, I just sing. laugh.gif

It feels like I sing with my head voice when I try to sing higher notes, or just sing clean, but when I put some "distortion" and aggression on my voice, it feels more like it's coming from my chest, if that makes sense.

I'm still struggling with the next verse and the "chorus" thingie and the verse after that. I'm slowly coming to realize my voice is not very proggy and more garage rock. But I'll keep trying!

EDIT:
Here's the take, guitars are rough at some spots, but vocals are even rougher:

Check out the full song, without vocals though. Decided to re-record the whole thing on guitar, so did that tonight. Tomorrow I will add the vocals, and hopefully better than before.

Hi Cael, good job polishing this tune. Your voice reminds me a bit to Osi project:




while other times it sounds closer to Opeth or Steven Wilson.


What do you think? You could explore based on those references....
