Number of the Beast

I'm a fan of Iron Maiden. This is simply one of the first things that came into my head for a narrative as a voice acting sample. While it may not be the best impression of Vincent Price ever, I feel it is a decent statement of how I can perform when it comes to voice acting.

I know the volume is low on this piece - I failed to compensate for the difference between my recording facilities and the sounds output on Newgrounds. I'll play about with it later.

I have a range of voices, send me a PM if you want to hear some more of my works.

"Woe to You Oh Earth and Sea,
for the Devil sends the beast with wrath,
because he knows the time is short.
Let him who hath understanding,
reckon the number of the beast.
For it is a human number -
its number is six hundred and sixty six."

I am an Iron Maiden fan (who isn't) so I really found a little bit of errors in it. Not a whole lot, and I wont critique the voice, but there are some. The first one I caight was that it was a little slow.

Fine up to the "Let he who hath understanding..." part. That was supposed to be done at a faster pace than the rest. Besides that the speed was fine. Now another part I cannot explain. It just dosn't have that feel.

Maybe it's the lightning effects thats missing, but I dont know. Maybe it's that subtle echo that the voice has in the real song that's missing. Either way, something is. Next time do the whole song. Get it Acustic and start singing. NOW!

Coop responds:

I tell you, I am having auditions for a part in a band next year, but my voice isn't accustomed to singing the whole of songs as epic as this. I'm not cut out for aping Bruce Dickinson, much as it pains me to say that.

Sure, I'd love to, but in 2010, there are two vocal singing projects for me to produce, so it's just a case of getting over this cold and having the time to perform them :)


Nice voice acting. I see now why you suggested I use it in my flashes. This sounds very professional and could make a bad animation look pretty good with a little wind in the background and maybe a couple explosions. Not bad at all.

Coop responds:

I'm glad you liked it - if you want me to give you some vocals, let me know and we can go from there. I'm not the world's best vocal artist, but we've all got to start somewhere.

Cool man

Crazy error in translation
636 or 616 is the "real" number tho isnt it ? ha =D
i think you could easily scare children with this

Coop responds:

Yeah, but this is the Vincent Price introduction to the popular Iron Maiden song "Number of the Beast" from the 1982 album of the same name.

The translation error was down to a translation of some obscure passage from a religious text (possibly the Bible) that has since been sourced to read that the number of the beast is in fact 616.


Well done! You have a great story telling voice. I might need you for one of my next pieces so I'll be sure to contact you! Also, I love the Iron Maiden song too ;) "666 IS THE NNUMMBAAAHH OF DA BEEAASSSTT!!"

Coop responds:

Just for the record, the number of the beast is actually 616 - there was some sort of error in translation from a 9th century monk.

Pretty good.

It came out quiet and some words were hard to hear. You had a good tone to your voice, and made it sound "convincing", I would like to hear this in context of a flash movie or something. Keep up the good work.

Kind regards -

Coop responds:

I'll be getting a new program soon and will be experimenting more with what my voice is truly capable of. Thanks for the help.
