Rishloo - Romance of a Dead Kingdom

Rishloo is a hella hard band to cover vocally, so I picked one of their easier songs even if it's not a particular favourite of mine. Also sped up the tempo a bit because I feel like the original kinda drags in that regard. I toyed around with the first few verses a bit trying to replicate the delivery that Mailloux sings them with, but I didn't really like how that turned out, so in the end I opted for a more baritonish, classically-phrased delivery for those parts instead. As for the ending highs... well, I went for 'em. You tell me how you think they turned out.

Btw, I couldn't find any lyric sites that listed what the last few lines were, and I couldn't make out the words myself, so I just skipped them. If anyone has any idea, though, please share!

It's a bit weird hearing somebody with a radically different tone and placement than Mailloux singing a Rishloo song, but I think this is a cool effort. I really like the softer approach you're using on the beggining, it's a side of your voice I don't recall you using at all - you got a really cool blend of a softer approach while keeping with the natural "dramaticness" of your voice - and I like the little "edginess" you add at points.

On the negative side, the highest parts sounded pitchy and uncomfortable (It's noticeable that you're tensioning quite a bit for the highest pitches). I'm particularly bad at giving advices on how you could improve when I myself suck at singing), but I think that with a bit more of training or a betterly warmed-up voice you could do this song better. Keep working on it!
