I really like this. I can imagine how hard it is to replicate Bohemian Rhapsody, and this is almost perfect. The vocals sound a little odd, a bit nasally, but other than that, a great cover.


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

The voices in the intro sound like if you were trying to be Freddie, and I don`t like it. You should sing like yourself, as during the rest of the song, which sounds really wonderful imo (both lead and harmonies).

The mix of the snare drum is a little weird. Other than that, it`s perfect. I love the guitars.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Hi, i'm the singer and guitar player in Stepping Stone. We live in Chile, South America and the band really is just me and a friend who plays bass. We recorded 'Bohemian Rhapsody' at home using a Roland RS-5 synth for the piano and drums and we recorded everything on a computer (with lots of hard disk to spare) with Cool Edit Pro software. I hope you people enjoy our brave attempt to recreate one of the best songs in the history of popular music.

Well done, especially considering such a difficult song to cover.

Some things were better than the last attempt at BoRhap on here. Most of it was very well done. Just the drums annoyed me because it sounded like one of those poor GeneralMidi basic kits. Power Kit?

Guitars were nicely done. The Operatic bit was pretty good. Just a shame the voice didn't seem to have much power or confidence behind it. The rock part was the only slight offering of more power, but still it fell a bit flat.

Peace,
Adam.
