Some of those hair flourishes were spot on  :D

Honestly, that was amazing.

The introduction, when you sang it, you really sang out the mood. You sang in a deep, growly voice and reflected off of Nafarius' mood nicely. Well done!

In this world of turmoil, some things remain the same, and that is good.

a simple popfilter would already make a big difference with your mic..

I actually had (somewhat) high hopes after the soft intro, but then the rest of it kicked in and I had to turn it off during what I assume was the chorus (not a slight against you, just not sure if that's actually the chorus in the song or not).

But this is a DTF tradition at this point I guess. You post a video, a bunch of us rip it apart, a bunch of guys decide that only praise is worth posting and give you tons of compliments, you say thanks, ignore the criticisms and suggestions to improve and the cycle repeats in a few months.

Yeah, I thought his intro was actually quite good other than the mic.

and I had to turn it off during what I assume was the chorus (not a slight against you, just not sure if that's actually the chorus in the song or not).
Are you talking about the section before "brace yourself..."? Because if so, I'm not sure if that's the chorus or not but it was the worst part in this cover; that and the very last line of the song...

Looked it up, I meant the "hide and protect him....". Felt like a chorus, but whatever it is, that's when I had to shut it down.

A bummer you didn't do the laughing section man! Perhaps it would be a good idea to do some eartraining, there are plenty of apps, websites etc that can help with that  ;)

If James does it, Nicky does it. If James doesn't do it, Nicky doesn't do it.

Dude, what happened to your backdrop?  And by backdrop I mean the one random poster you decided to decorate your wall with by using a single piece of tape to hold it up. 

I hate to nitpick but I will not watch any more of your videos unless you bring it back.

I'll make a new video where I'll do the evil laugh  :yarr , special for all of you  :D
The reason why I didn't do it was I didn't know if I would do it right. But fuck it, once in a life(live)time, right?  ;D

You should collaborate with Zantera on the next Paris in the Spring album.

For all the s*** he's getting when posting here, Nicky Spanjaards keeps coming back and keeps his sense of humour. For all that, and I mean it sincerely, I love you, Nicky!

So do you guys seriously think he sounds exactly as bad as years ago? No improvement? I could have sworn he sounded a tad better in his latest than the ones he did way back when. I mean, it still hurts to listen to, but still.

He *has* improved, no doubt. But reality is, you could count the on-pitch notes in that song on one hand.

Minor improvement over........5 years? I think? Sure, but if our standards are at the point where we praise that kind of improvement, then we probably don't have much room to criticize anyone.

I have never once listened to this guy. Went to the page, listened to him cover about a minute of my favorite current band, Alter Bridge, and just cringed. Holy shit was that bad. I mean, credit to him loving hard rock and metal, and loving to sing, and putting it out there. But uh...

I completely forgot about the Christmas Special that he did. I feel so uncomfortable watching it because everyone in the room looks so confused.

Even before the "singing" starts.

"Is it a man?"  :lol

Nicky is a DTF Hall of Famer - love him.
