So here we have a power metal song about the character Nicodemus from The Secret Of NIMH. This was the final track on the first ever album I made, "Internal Metronome". Sadly despite my best efforts, I just dont have the right type of voice for this song, so excuse my poor vocal performance, The songs from my second album "Hidden", are much more suited to my voice. Still though, I mite hire a better vocalist and do an all around remix of this song, since I'm still very happy with it.

Lyrics:

Lyrics:

V1
what if I told you
your inteligence came from
somewhere un natural

let me tell you the tail
of a dark secret
humans kept for so long

B1
locked in a cage away from everything but fear of the end
A single message that I tried to send again and again
there was a prayer that I kept reciting in my head
SAVE US

v1.5
in this world we live in
there are things we have
yet to fully understand

I have seen a vision
and the morals we carry
are not apart of the plan

B2
fighting so despritaly to find the answer to what they need
secret society that started from a dark evil seed
and that same prayer still I hear inside me and it repeats
SAVE US

V2
oooohhh, winters coming soon

oooooohhh, change is on its way

there is nothing left to take
we must move on, the valley awaits us

ooooooh, its not so simple now

Bridge 3

locked in a cage away from everything but fear of the end
secret society thats falling now we can not pretend
there was a parayer that I kept reciting in my head
SAVE US

verse 3

desicions deadlocked, the fear of change holds us back
now that you know the truth
now you see

you can unlock any door
if you only have the key

there is no time left to waste
we must find a better way

I believe that we can change,

if we only have the key
IF WE ONLY HAVE THE KEY!!!!

That is one incredibly melodic song. I haven't listened to stuff like that in a long time. I am curious what type of voice were you wanting for this song? I thought your vocals suited it very well. Your voice is smooth and sort of peaceful, I think it sounds right for the way the instruments sound. But I kept thinking Timo Kotipelto from Stratovarius would maybe have the fit you were looking for. Is that what you wanted, something high, melodic, and powerful?

I am not offering vocals, by the way, I am just curious. I don't sing myself, I am mostly a guitar player.


FoxiFyer responds:

well, one thing about my voice I dont like is I can never get it to sound powerful or aggressive. I would compare my voice to steven wilson, but in baratone. plus I really had to force myself to hit alot of the notes, and to me hearing myself strain dosent sound good. yeah a voice similar to Timo's would be perfect, somthing powerful but not to high.
Thanks though :3
