    Oh no! I won't be fooled again! I clicked on your link and listened to your singing before. That's a minute of my life I'll never be getting back again.

    I think it was very brave of you to dispose yourself like that.

    Forget the OP's recording, vocaroo's info page is a lot more entertaining, it had me laughing out loud once or twice.

    I think you are forcing the vibrato. Also the song was made for honey-toned tenors. Your voice has a more gruff quality. I think you got a perfect voice for metal and hard rock. Why quit singing altogether if you can't a certain genre?

    How much Opera have you listened to in your life? If you haven't heard much, then it will probably sound like a pretty good attempt by your standards. I even think if you are going to perform it to your metal audience, if they like the style change, I think you'd be able to please them enough.

    But if you are playing to a crowd that is well versed in Opera, they will hear the poor vibrato execution, and pitchiness of the notes, and lack of training.

    It's a good attempt for never having done it before, and it's cool you want to broaden your horizons, but you are being unrealistic if you think you can learn how to sing Opera convincingly to an Opera crowd with just a weeks practice.


    My opinion.

    Sorry captain, you can putt an audience trough this, it should be song like a higgledy trained tenor.

    Do yourself a favour and let a professional decide how you voice is.
