Critique of my singing

Hello, everyone! I have been following this forum and KTVA work for few months now and I have to say that I'm planning on joining you and buying the course because I really want to progress with my singing, although I have been doing it for 5-6 years now, because I believe that I still have a lot to learn. 

As far as I know by now, I am a baritone with somewhere little above 3 octaves of range, starting from C#2 and up to F#5, if I did that correctly (measuring it).

I grew up on rock, grunge and metal, so my vocal role models were and still are guys like Layne Staley, Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder, because I think I have a similar voice like them. 

Anyway, I would really appreciate it if some of you would listen to few of my songs and tell me how I fare with my singing and my voice's virtues and flaws.

Bard's Song (Blind Guardian cover) -

    Hi, @Chavez,

    Thanks for saying hello after hanging around for a while.  It's nice to meet you.

    I like your song Omega Love.  Your voice sounds good.  You have a nice character in your voice.  Did you collaborate over the internet with the other musician?  It's a cool tune and your voice sounds comfortable in that range and genre.  Black: The head voice at 0:33 seems to need to match up a little closer to the timbre of the chest voice, or if you want it to flip you could make that a little more obvious. 

    You're doubletracking or digitally doubling the voice.  That does mask a bit of your actual voice.  It sounds good on the recordings, though.  

    Bard's Song: Nice.  Good G#4.  Nice harmonies, and yes, doubling.

    Got Me Wrong: Recording of the voice is a little muffly compared to the other tunes.  The harmonies at the end of the song sound a bit discordant.

    You are doing well with your voice for no training.  Ken's course will bring out more tone, power, control,  and support which will be a step up for your vocals.  It will also help you to develop resilience against hoarseness and help you to keep singing for years to come.

    All the Best!

    Thanks, Bob, appreciate it! 

    Yeah, I always sing the main vocals two times, never copy them, learned to do it few years back and got used to do it along with the harmonies, and I have a 40$ microphone, so I tried to cover up that a bit with that. When I get better mic, I'll look to avoid that probably. 

    Regarding Omega Love, yeah, it's an online collaboration, I did many songs like that due to the lack of people to work with in my vicinity, unfortunately. I made a full album like that, actually, and plan on doing one more, at least.

    Thank you once again for your advice, I'll keep them in mind definitely! 

    And I hope I'll soon buy the course because I really want to improve all of this.
