I'm not entirely a Linkin Park fan (mostly indifferent toward them), but by fan request (Monkeyface91) I've made my own cover to their hit song "New Divide". In this cover, I didn't try to change the style much, but rather gave my own spin on it and did things the way I thought they should be done in the song. For the most part, aside from changing the instrumentation a wee bit, I acted upon my undying hatred for the bridge to the original song (I feel it killed the goodness the song had going for it).

Also, this experience gave me a chance to give my new toys a spin (my $80 Studio mic, a new VSTi I got called "Addictive Drums" that contains realistic drumset samples, and actually getting to use Nuendo 4 to make a song after I spent damn near $1000 on it)

I had to crank the vocals up a lot more than I normally would have, lest they'd drown in the mix with the guitars and such, but I think they blend fairly well.

(Original song and lyrics by Linkin Park)
(Cover music/performance by George R. Powell (Setu Firestorm))

I remembered black skies, the lightning all around me
I remembered each flash as time began to blur
Like a startling sign that fate had finally found me
And your voice was all I heard that I get what I deserve

So give me reason to prove me wrong, to wash this memory clean
Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes
Give me reason to fill this hole, connect the space between
Let it be enough to reach the truth that lies across this new divide

There was nothing in sight but memories left abandoned
There was nowhere to hide, the ashes fell like snow
And the ground caved in between where we were standing
And your voice was all I heard that I get what I deserve

So give me reason to prove me wrong, to wash this memory clean
Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes across this new divide

In every loss, in every lie, in every truth that you'd deny
And each regret and each goodbye was a mistake too great to hide
And your voice was all I heard that I get what I deserve

So give me reason to prove me wrong, to wash this memory clean
Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes
Give me reason to fill this hole, connect the space between
Let it be enough to reach the truth that lies across this new divide
Across this new divide, across this new divide

Again I say: Epic...

You should try writing some music in LP's style, you are good enough at singing it! Honestly, when are you releasing a CD?

Impressive!

And you did this all alone??! You have talent man!

Im not a great fan of Linkin Park but I do enjoy their music, and your cover was very faithful to the original and impressed me! The score is very underrated btw

I think if you go on professional career you will be rich man, trust me!

Im going to check other music from you now. Thanks for the cool song!


Setu-Firestorm responds:

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it. My main motivation for doing this cover (aside from the fact that someone asked me to do it) was the bridge in the original version - it made me want to shoot myself. They had a perfectly decent song going on and when it gets to the bridge you're like "What...? Did this song just completely derail?"

Or maybe those were just my thoughts. =p

Thanks again.
