For the friends of the Stage Of Champions - here is a new fan performance of a more uncommon song.
Listen to this voice.


Enjoy:)

A good effort...

Why do people/bands insist on using vocoders/voice effects/pitch correctors? Just ruins songs for me...

Other than the processed vocals, a good effort on a completely different song. I am of the mind that, if the right band re-did that song with strong vocals without the cheesy 80's synths, that it would be a massive hit.

Great vocals,

although I wonder why most of the vocalists in the Stage of Champions are spanish sounding

I didn't think the vocals were good at all. Especially not that "taaalll" at 52secs-in. Yuck! The more I listened, the more that raspy sound came to the fore on high vocals. That really turned me off.

It's nice to see something different - But it just sounds so full-on harsh to me. As you may have guessed, there's not much I like about this cover. Such a shame after all the great covers that have appeared here lately.

I like the musical style change, but the vocals are total Do Not Want.

Autotune = bad

But actually, I was pleasantly surprised by pieces of this guys voice. He needs a *lot* more control in it, and naturally I have a hard time taking it seriously when there's an obvious accent involved (I'm a prick like that)
But really, not at all a terrible singer, there is a good voice there. Just need practice.

True Zeb, there is a voice in there. Just needs controlled and brought out.
