As promised, I took the weekend to attempt some vocals on Track 6. This song is unique in that I’ll actually be singing in the final version of the song… I have a long way to go though.
I open with clean vocals, which don’t sound too bad, but I need to harness the black for a few lines in the song. I completely failed though, so I had to rely on effects to portray what I’m going for. We’ll see if I can improve upon this in later revisions, because the current approach is unacceptable!
Before I get too deep in analysis, have a listen for yourself. Full lyrics are in my previous post.
I’m not completely sold on my delivery of the lines starting at “What has he done with his poor family now...” I might prefer more screaming for that part.
I do like how the vocals for “His axe, her body cleft” are coming across, though. Once we get another guitar track and some drums in there, the intensity will be great!
Dan’s part, which starts with “Grave indeed…” is going to be perfect for his voice. I obviously have some trouble delivering the loud lines that follow, but I know he’ll just nail them.
The gang vocals at the end are almost embarrassing, but I’m just trying to get the idea across. I layered two tracks of me pretending to yell, and it’s pretty pathetic. We’ll have to get a half dozen guys in the studio to really deliver those lines when the time comes. Should be fun!
