Sorry for lack of new covers! I've been busy with school and stuff.
For the next few covers along with more mid-range stuff (Queen's "'39" is gonna be done, I don't think i'll do the A5 though because my falsetto's trash) I want to do some things that excersize higher range, around the B4-C5 area. I've changed my high note technique significantly, less shouty, and more heady and mixed, and through a lot of work have put good power/sustain into them. Rush's "One Little Victory" is going to be done soon. I have also worked on blending falsetto into my chest, inspired by singers like Warrel Dane or Rob Halford, who's seamless switching has always impressed me, even if it can sometimes sound bad.
But the big news is that since I am pursuing music as a career, I have an album in the works! It should come out on, depending on how much time I have, May 15th or June 1st. The first song ready will be a cover of "Iron Man" (Segueing into "Electric Funeral") as a tribute to Black Sabbath. The rest will all be originals.
Here's a new cover! One Little Victory by Rush. This is a demanding song with a lot of B4 melody singing, I chose it because it is sung high but not overly so, to showcase how i'm working on making my high notes less shouty and more mixed. I also faded it out around a minute early because the improvisational ending was too hard.
Head voice vs falsetto re Dane was a disord topic of a few months ago. I personally feel it sounds seperate enough from his chesty singing that it could be falsetto, and he never would really slide between the two without a noticable change. I would say Dane is using a reinforced falsetto of Gillan variety, rather than the Halford head voice technique, and he himself has described it as falsetto is interviews. It's more his aggressive delivery that makes his wailing sound Halford-ish than his overall approach imo

Fetty, Whenever I listen to your recordings, your voice sounds super nasaly. I don't know if you have a plugged nose all the time, but thats what it sounds like. I think your voice is pretty good on Grand Designs, but you sound like you can't breathe through your nose at all.
You're not even trying to sing, you're trying to hit a bunch of notes, singing is about Tone + Pacing + Being on pitch, you're just trying to hit notes which you have in your head, instead you should be doing the following:
1) Take basic songs that you can tolerate and sing them
2) Record yourself
3) Listen to yourself
4) Listen to the original
5) Correct one thing, over and over and over again until you get it right
Here is my own reccomendation for a fantastic mid-range song. D3-D4. It could serve as a good exercise to build better tone in your comfort zone, before expanding into the rest of your range. www.youtube.com/watch?v=xe3RqgnXaT4
Along with my midrange work, lately i've been practicing high range, singing with a headier/grittier technique. picosong.com/we2uh/ Here's a brief clip of me singing a bit of "Stained Class" by Judas Priest, to show what i've been working on in regards to singing high.
That's some better pitching and control in that high singing clip. Good job. Still a bit on the shouty side for some of those C♯5s, and I'd probably recommend getting a solid mix with a clean tone first, and develop the distortion afterwards. But around the G4-A4 parts of that clip you sounded more comfortable than previously, and there I liked the tasteful vibrato on those phrases too. Keep recording. You're getting better
