Hi Keith, great effort man! I listened to the whole thing, and if you're willing, here are a few friendly critique observations:

-- You shift into a falsetto mode somewhere around F#4, definitely by A4. Your falsetto tone is mostly accurate to the pitch, but the tone is not as pleasing to the ear as a full head voice would be. Continue working on your head voice register. I think that will improve the audience's reception. For example 0:55-1:02, kinda has a "Kermit the Frog" falsetto tone to it, if you know what I mean. On those higher notes, sing full voice, with more forte and volume, avoid the falsetto. Work on your bridging and connecting. :)

-- You're consistently a little late on the beat, but in some areas it's especially noticeable. For example 2:03-2:10, and similar syncopated phrases in the song. Work on your time accuracy - it's especially important with Progressive Metal and syncopated or odd time signatures.

I hope this doesn't offend you in any way, or come across as nit-picking. The name of the forum is "Review & Critique My Singing", so I'm just trying to kindly share some honest observations. All the best to ya! You have a good voice, keep going!!!

Overall this is a really slamming cover. The main thing I noticed vocally, is that I felt you were singing a register that was little low for you and as a result some of the notes weren't delivered with the necessary power to make them shine. This is really a though position since songs like this aren't easily arranged in different keys. If you were looking for real vocal coaching, I would advise picking pieces that could be made to fit YOUR vocals as apposed forcing your vocals over the piece.

However, I am just a novice singer myself so I would completely understand if you disregarded my comment.

Actually, this register is a bit high for me. I could easilly sing bass lol. I have to work on most all these notes individuallty in order to even sing them. I think that is huge compliment to hear someone say that I may be singing in too low a register!
