Re: Megadeth - Rust in Peace/Polaris

I'm not a metal fan on average, but Megadeth is one I've liked over the years. I recall learning some of the riffs of Polaris back in the day.

I think your performance is solid all the way through and works well as you sang it. It's not as quirky as Mustaine, which is probably why Megadeth appeals to my mostly non metal tastes, but it's more technically solid than Mustaine could probably muster.

The most interesting thing about hearing this I prefer 'warmer' voices on average. Like more of a low mid ratio in the timbre than the average metal style head voiced singer which tend have more 'cutting' metallic tones. My preference is so strong, I often prefer singers like Eddie Kendricks over metal head voice, but even I feel like this is mixed too soft.

I don't think it's your actual singing. The way the voice is coming out sounds like it is pretty punchy and cutting, and if you were in the same room with me I'd hear a lot of cut. But it's almost like 'bite' is missing from the sound. The frequency may be around the singer's formant or maybe above it? I don't know if it was part of the recording process (your mic) or the mix? I never thought I'd be going into a metal thread to turn up that metallic ring, given my tastes, but I don't think it's doing your performance justice. It places you almost in the background.

Well done, Thanos. I like it better than the original.

Re: Megadeth - Rust in Peace/Polaris

Thanks guys, I was really worried about this performance.

I understand what you mean by "needs to cut through more", I think the production
makes everything more mellow. Maybe I should have processed the vocals after the fact
to make them stand out more (just like on Metal Meltdown).

Thanks again!
