ISO Male-or-Female Hard Rock or Symphonic Metal Vocalist ๐Ÿ“œ๐ŸŒ€๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’ 

Recommended Posts

Hello Talented Singers! Does anyone want to help form a fantasy-themed symphonic metal/rock band?ย ๐Ÿ“œ๐ŸŒ€๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’ 

My name is Hawksearcher, an up-and-coming independent YouTube artist who specializes in Celtic, fantasy, and symphonic metal music. I have been utilizing the vocal talents of some of my acquaintances for some time now, but I want to form a potentially long-lasting artistic partnership with a male or female vocalist who can grow with me as my channel starts growing.
This post will:
1. detail the kind of vocalist I would love to make music with, and
2. show some of my own music up until this point :).
First, some of my favorite vocalists of all time are Dustin from Starset and Fabvl. If you are able to sing in a heavy-rock, melodic screaming style (or able to switch between melodic singing and heavier emphasized vocals), then you're exactly who I want to form a friendship with :). Here are two reference videos that offer a great base point for that kind of singing I'm in love with:




Secondly, more about my own music: I am currently working on my next single, called "Mage," which is a fusion of some medieval instrumentation and (what I would love to be) heavy-rock/metal vocals. Here is a link to the sheet music of the song itself (it's still a midi though, so the instrumentation doesn't sound awesome yet):ย Copy of Mage - Noteflight Community
For an additional reference (I guess you could say showcasing my mixing and compositional talent), here is my most recent release, "Crescent," which features quite a few vocal layers. My next single "Mage" is not nearly as chant-like; it is more of a symphonic-rock type of song with heavy influences from Sawano Hiroyuki:ย 


And finally, here's an example of some of my actual symphonic metal in the past :).ย 


In conclusion--would you like to join me and become a fantasy version of the band Starset? I think we have a lot of potential :D.

Due to some inactivity on this thread, I won't be actively monitoring it for replies anymore. Instead, if anyone would like to get in touch with me, I'll copy my Discord username below! Assume I have some openings still, even if it's been a while since this thread has startedย :). Sometimes I have singers come and go.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.ย ย "Ignorance"ย &ย "Surfย Nicaragura"ย did a great job of establishing the band, whereasย "The American Way"ย just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.ย  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.ย  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.ย  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.ย  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.ย ย 'Divide & Conquer'ย andย 'Salvation'ย muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.ย  The looming build toย 'Manifest Reality'ย delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.ย  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.

      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).ย  I don't like Phil's vocals.ย  I never had if I am being honest.ย  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks likeย 'Manifest Reality'.ย  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation')ย and tracks lose real punch.ย  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.ย  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoyย "Awakening".ย  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.ย  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.ย  Yes,ย 'Death Valley'ย & 'Something to Believe'ย haveย no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work butย 'Revolution'ย is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!

    • Full length number 19 from overkill certainly makes a splash in the energy stakes, I mean there's someย modernย thrash bands that are a good two decades younger than Overkill who can only hope to achieve the levels of spunk that New Jersey's finest produce here.ย  That in itself is an achievement, for a band of Overkill's stature and reputation to be able to still sound relevant four decades into their career is no mean feat.ย  Even in the albums weaker moments it never gets redundant and the energy levels remain high.ย  There's a real sense of a band in a state of some renewed vigour, helped in no small part by the addition of Jason Bittner on drums.ย  The former Flotsam & Jetsam skinsman is nothing short of superb throughout "The Wings of War" and seems to have squeezed a little extra out of the rest of his peers.

      The album kicks of with a great build to opening track "Last Man Standing" and for the first 4 tracks of the album the Overkill crew stomp, bash and groove their way to a solid level of consistency.ย  The lead work is of particular note and Blitz sounds as sneery and scathing as ever.ย  The album is well produced and mixed too with all parts of the thrash machine audible as the five piece hammer away at your skull with the usual blend of chugging riffs and infectious anthems.ย ย 

      There are weak moments as mentioned but they are more a victim of how good the strong tracks are.ย  In it's own right "Distortion" is a solid enough - if not slightly varied a journey from the last offering - but it just doesn't stand up well against a "Bat Shit Crazy" or a "Head of a Pin".ย  As the album draws to a close you get the increasing impression that the last few tracks are rescued really by some great solos and stomping skin work which is a shame because trimming of a couple of tracksย may have made this lessย obvious.ย
