Heroes and Dragons (Symphonic Version)

Post by Japes » Mon Sep 07, 2009 9:12 pm

I actually have two questions, but I'll keep them brief:
1-Are the vocals used in Heroes and Dragons on Lex Rex the same recorded vocals used for the Symphonic Version, or were they re-recorded?
2-Which was recorded first, the chicken or the egg? No, just kidding, was the symphonic or the Lex Rex version recorded first?
Luke 6:27-31
27 "But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. 29 If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. 30 Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. 31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.

Not the same vocals. I sing the Lex Rex one and Walter sang the symph one and I think they're at different tempos and in different keys, though I'd have to see. Lex Rex came first.

You sang the Lex Rex one? Wow, I honestly thought it was Walter this whole time. That and I guess I should have listened to it again before posting this...

HA! Japes, when I started listening to GH, I also used to get Fred and Walter mixed up ALL the time. Thank you. I feel vindicated.

Wow, just re-listened to the Lex Rex version and you can sing a LOT higher than I thought you could, Fred! Really, I can't imagine that voice coming out of you, at least compared to what few vocals you had in the Ten Toes (that's probably not the best thing to which to compare) or that podcast you guys released earlier, or just judging from your pictures.

I don't really though, I just have sort of a high sounding voice :P I have the lowest range of anyone. Though I have a pretty good falsetto so I can do the high back-up parts.

Well, Fred, I think you should carry your vocal talents into this new album fully, and include a part akin to that of 4:25 of Track 3 on The Ten Toes. I LOVE that part!

I know, crazy, right?! I just realized that this year I can finally say that I have been a Hammerhead for over half of my life.
