Peter Steele - Go to Sleep

First Steele cover I've done in quite a while, and this one was TOUGH! Aside from all the first octave melody singing that it involved, I sorely underestimated just how much breath it would take to pull off those sustained F♯4s. I thought it turned out pretty well on the whole, though it's gotten kinda mixed reviews from the people that I've shown it to in the Skype chat so far, so now I'm curious to hear what other people will think.

I like the highs a lot especially the belts, sound really nice, but please dude, try to find songs without those low notes. They sound pretty bad, basically fry. But you might be able to sing them sometime if you keep improving breathing

You know, I really agree with this. Peter Steele is way out of your range, bro. Actually, dxfifa, you should try this song. I think it's better suited for a true bass.

Although there is a saying that I use... If you can fry it, you can try it.

lol it's always surprising when I get the occasional comment like this, because all the rest of the time people are heavily praising my lows and telling me that my low register is much better than my high register. Admittedly, I had some difficulty with these ones (turns out I'm better at singing melodies starting in the second octave and carrying down into the first octave, rather than ones that completely sit in the first octave), but if you listen to the lows in the original, they're really not too far off. It's the same kind of mixed fry technique that Peter Steele himself used. But thanks for listening anyway.

I see what you are saying, I've listened to that song. I think it's because your voice is higher placed than his, that the technique can be right but it sounds odd.

Not as much as you might think. I'm a bass-baritone myself (albeit a light one) and he's a basso profundo or something, so we're not toooo far off.

A standard baritone, who's got a lower tessitura. Sorry about my horrible way of wording before

No, I don't think you understand. "Standard baritone" isn't a real voice type.

It's the easiest way to describe the space in between bass and high baritones. I guess I should say middle baritone or something. Cos standard isn't what I mean now I think bout it

You could be a dramatic baritone in technical terms though haha

You're still doing it wrong, but I don't have the patience to go into a full explanation of why we don't break voices up into "high", "middle"/"standard" and "low" subcategories anymore. I'll leave that to Holsety for the time being.

Anyway, I don't know how you (and apparently a surprising number of other people) hear Steele as a bass-baritone, but if he's not a bass, basically no one is. As far as my own voice is concerned, some of my other covers might make my bass-baritoneness more audible - i.e. my "Living Sin" cover. I consider myself a lyric bass-baritone though, and I highly doubt I'm a dramatic voice of any type. If you talk to any of the folks on here who know my voice better, any of them will tell you that my voice is surprisingly not deep for how low it is.

It's strange though, some people class a bass baritone as a lyric bass and the way I see it, a lyric bass baritone is just a deeper baritone usually, nothing bassy about their voice. I guess that's why I am not calling you a bass-bari
