Thanks! Yes I know :/ I still don't have much control over my voice.
Nope I don't do any! On that day it was pretty early and I just recorded it once, I hadn't done any singing before. I don't really know of any warm-ups honestly.
I'm going to music college this year and i'm going in for my voice so i'll hopefully improve a bit more then! Thanks a lot for the constructive criticism though, you're the first person to just tell me they don't like it, much appreciated for the honesty :D
And why, may I ask, is the second video much better than the first? :)

Vocals are harder than people think and it isn't easy to control. If you don't know any proper vocal warmups then simply just sing a song or two at a low volume and don't strain your voice too much. I'm sure you'll improve at music college.
And no problem, I wasn't trying to cause offense or anything with the criticism. It's just if I said "Yeah great perfect!" then that isn't helping anyone! Don't get me wrong though, you're still very good :)
And I just thought that your vocals were hitting the notes a lot better and you were singing with a bit more power and confidence than the first one.

Yes vocals are very difficult! The hardest instrument i've tried my hand at for sure :P I certainly hope so! :)
Exactly! :o I mean I KNOW I screw up quite a bit, so when someone tells me it's perfect, I know they're either lying or just oblivious to the mistakes :P Thanks for the compliment :)
Ya, for that song I relaxed much more and let my voice flow out rather than trying to push it out I guess :)
Do you sing yourself? You seem to be quite knowledgeable on the topic! :P

Guitar, but I'm only really a beginner at it. I spent so long trying to follow my dreams of being a rockstar singer that it never occurred to me that I could learn an instrument. I never considered that being a nobody guitarist is just as satisfactory in terms of musical expression. Until a few weeks ago that is and I bought my guitar and started to feel like I was contented. Fame is irrelevant (although it would be nice) because at the end of the day I'll always be a musician playing from the heart in whatever I do. Whether I'm playing music around a full time job or whether I'm a world-famous rockstar, I'm still going to be me expressing my feelings through a musical tune

Ran out of reply space!
And I've already talked to a few guys, I know a drummer and a bassist but we need that ever elusive vcocalist! :P We don't really know anyone that can sing! So probably a few months or so to get used to our instruments a bit more. I've only really just picked up the guitar but we're meeting up and just jamming together so we pretty much HAVE a band, we just aren't playing yet haha!

That's very admirable, I'm not musically talented, I just have the passion for music so I wouldn't be able to do that!
And rock and metal music, but not the toneless racket! Clean electric guitars and clean vocals!
Something a lot like this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Su3SSOco7Gc or this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaB_c5-u2qs
