Authors' Notes

Cover of the song by Aesthetic Perfection in a jazz style, because who doesn't listen to random industrial stuff and say "Well, this is good but is needs more big band."
Original song here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzwabnt-9ko

The upright bass is actually the piano sample, edited in Psycle's internal wav editor.

The vocals are pretty terrible, I am not a great singer and did these in an hour after a night of drinking and not getting enough sleep.

Haha, you kinda turned the marlin-mansonish tune into a Richard Cheese version, cool!
No, the vocals aren't terrible. Compared to the original your vocals aren't autotuned (you can clearly hear the pitch correction in the original). You just might need some good, basic DSP chain on your vocals (compression, de-essing and maybe some room/unison).
I like the little jazzy chords/notes you play with the piano inbetween. Funny thing, thiat. Thanks for the entry :)

The vocals are terrible, but you've got a good voice. All you really need is more practice, more confidence, and more takes. I like the arrangement you've got here, especially considering the original it's based on.

The bass sounds a bit loud, otherwise, it's a great idea, I like it.

I like the fact that you brought a different style to the song.

The mix is a bit off to me, the bass and the saw lead are a bit loud.

I would have liked to hear more energy and emotion in the singing. Easier said than done, I know, especially if you aren't alone.
