Think i've leveled up on my production skills.
trying to get the hang of cleans now and not only screaming.

Do you take singing lessons? if not i'd highly suggest you do if you want to make anything out of this. If you do take singing lessons and thats the best you can do I'd suggest putting your time and effort into something else.
I don’t think the singing is as bad as wounder would like you to believe but I do think it could probably use some sort of blending or something. I am no musician but just something to make it sound better and more in line with the music.

Right now it just sounds... overlayed? Which never really sounds all that great in my experience

Need help? PM me!

Are you still using Audacity? It's really not the best program.

@Divine, it sounds overlayed because he's singing over the top of an MP3 - There's just two layers (3 when he's doing the doubled vox). Swexx, experiment with reverb and echo to add some depth to the vocals - Then it won't sound as so 'stuck on top'.

Also, sounds to me like the volume of the MP3 decreases at times when you start singing - Are you vocal tracks dampening the instrumental MP3? This would contribute to the overlaying issue Divine mentioned.

Some vocal lesson wouldn't go awry, if you can afford them.

not taking any lessons just experimenting and testing stuff out my self and i'll stick to this and see how far i can go by just my own research.
when i feel like i'm reaching a full stop and not making progress i will seek some professional guidance because vocals has always been something that i'm very interested in, but i never had the balls to actualy go out and do it until now.
thanks for the critque, all tracks will not be hits.
cleans are not really my comfort zone.

i think i got the levels on the instrumental and the vocal tracks abit on the "Wildside" and there was to much work just redoing it all so i got lazy i guess you could say hehe. i'm trying to expirment with both echo and reverb but it's a learning process for me right now. much like toribash it did not take just 1 year to git gud. shit took ages!

thanks for the input guys!
i can take critique, i won't cry (well maybe just a lil ;/)

this track here is much more my speed.
and i really thought about getting the vocals in a decent volume this time and it was my plan from the beginning when starting the project and things were going much smoother.

Man these take so much more commitment now when i have to mix and master the track and throw up some half decent "video" along with the track. but it's deffo a learning experience and i can feel some sort of accomplishment with all of this.
when i get good enough i will start to "real videos" but for now this is the best i can do without it taking damn near ages.

hope you enjoy guys.
