kradness is a relatively new utaite with a strong and compelling voice, who also generally covers more upbeat songs.
He is known for autotuning his voice often, and so his covers are often tagged with "kerorist" (ケロリスト), a portmanteau of "kerokero" (ケロケロ, the onomatopoeia for autotune) and "terrorist" (テロリスト). As that, his voice fits songs with a slight electronic rock sound, such as those by niki, very well, for example his cover of "GLIDE".
However apparently his frequent autotuning met with criticism, therefore on some of his covers, he leaves a note saying that he'd suggest them pressing the browser back button, if they dislike autotuning.
He frequently does covers of songs with Leychal and recently began dueting with Reol as their voices compliment each other very well.
kradness mainly covers VOCALOID songs, however his first cover, uploaded April 2011, was "a fact of life", originally by the band fact. His first hit solo song was his "Babylon" cover, however it is currently set on private. His most popular cover up to date on both, Nico Nico Douga and YouTube is "Yī Èr Fanclub" with 263K and 300K views respectively as of August 2013. However the YouTube version is different from the Nico Nico Douga version, containing no ad-libs.
kradness also mixes and encodes songs for other utaite.
