Laid To Rest (Vokill Cover)

Hey guys, this is my vocal cover of Laid To Rest by Lamb Of God.
The music was all done by Nicholls. (Fantastic job man)
The quality is not that great because I used a Rock Band mic wrapped in paper towels (Ghetto spit screen ftw)
I asked Nicholls for permission to use his track however it appears he doesnt get on much anymore.
So if this song disappears you know why.
Anyway, enjoy!

umm listen to the original a few more times for timing and back off on the mic vol


Not bad man. You need to work on your vocal control some but you sound pretty good.

Blackdoom13 responds:

Thanks. I wasnt practicing much back then.


you're overloading the mic by a shitload. which is what is giving the distorted sound everyone down here is commenting about. your screaming isn't bad though. doesn't sound too much like throat screaming. which is GOOD. haha.
timing is definitely off though

Blackdoom13 responds:

Lol indeed. Fucking throat screams sound awful.
I cant help but overload it lol its a Rock Band mic lol

It was ok

You got to learn how to make ur growls better it sounds like ur using the mic to do that well good it alright

Blackdoom13 responds:

Lol thanks.
The mic is distorted due to it being a piece of shit lol.
Its a Rock Band mic for fucks sake lol

Good try.

I agree with SpeedMetalSandwich, though - it needs a lot of work.
It sounds like you're distorting the mic to make the growl sound, which isn't good.
It should be your throat making the tone.
Listen to my version, if you get a minute - that might steer you in the right direction.
Keep working on your voice, and you'll get there eventually.
Best of luck.

Blackdoom13 responds:

Woah woah I have never used effect to make my growls sound better. Ever.
The reason this a distorted sound is if you read the description you know that I used a very shitty mic.
However I now have a studio mic and will re-record this if not to make it sound better than simply prove you wrong.
