    Also, I loved Noble Beast's singer. He, too, has many things in his arsenal. I love his pseudoclassical "civilized falsetto" to end the namesake song! :D You can also hear it from the singer that these guys worship bands like Guardian. ;)

    A trve ug metal friend of mine in real life said the same. :( Well, it works wonders for me! Maybe I hype it too much to others so they get disappointed. :P

    Sorry to spam you more even if you haven't answered to the previous one yet, but: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3XYx5hHq5g. Dat song, dat singer! Verses: Andy Mück, chorus: Rob Halford, sometimes: elderly Biff Byford? Not bad. :P One of the best new metal songs for me for a while.

    Greetings! Ah, at least one other person has noticed Noble Beast. Your thoughts? I think it's ridiculously awesome. Like putting guys from BG, Iron Savior, Running Wild and a couple of US Power bands in the same room and telling them to make a dream album, plus these guys are young and still sound ambitious and energetic too! .____. Not too polished, and I think the best new album I've heard in years!

    Well, I like all things Hansi. On AtEoT, the singing is better than with previous two albums, if only because he doesn't double (and triple, and quadruple, and...) ALL his vocal layers anymore. He has changed to more prudent output, too, from those more aggressive years of youth. And production sounds better than on Ayreon - 01011001 where it didn't suit his voice at all. I think anyways that his best (and most aggressive) vocals ever were on Imaginations. :) Good point on Run for the Night - he did that kind of stuff in the past, I didn't remember! Also, damn the egos of the guitarists! >:/ That every guy had something to say on how their own instrumental parts turn out would be the right way to go! :)

    Btw, I don't even think many power metal singers are actually tenors... their base frequency and normal speech voice often don't seem high for men. I think they're baritones more often, but they've just practiced to get a strong high register. :>

    Yeah, much like what I just posted about Kai Hansen in Helloween's shoutbox. How he actually learned to sing very quickly somewhere between him feating on Tales from the Twilight World, and taking lead vocal duties for Land of the Free. (Although I already liked how he sounded with his awful technique in early HW/BG. :P Good attitude!) But Hansi is still a whole different matter... From a poor random shouter to a god-like singer! :D You can hear his progression album by album though. I think it's more or less still continuing you know! He's still finding new things to sing, and some of his registers keep getting better (the "lunatic fears the unknoooOOOOOOWN" from Tanelorn (Into the Void) - holey sheit! :I) -- Wait, the singers don't write their own singing melodies? They don't even ask the guitarists that "hey, could I sing this-and-this instead of The Same Old Shit, I'd like to really challenge my voice. Would add much-needed variety and personality to our song"? Such awful guys! ;D

    Do you have any explanation as to why the singers normally don't change their technique, intensity, etc., during a song? Something that Hansi Kürsch does constantly. Are the songwriters and singers that unimaginative or what is it; do they even have the SKILL to do it? Why does power metal have to have so many patterns-written-in-stone, and some ridiculous presumptions such as "the singer must only sing loud and high all the time, everything else is wrong", or that the song cannot change at all as it progresses? That is something only reserved to the longest song of the album. Whereas Guardian's songs do so constantly, and they still sound as good and natural that, hell, people don't even realize to put the "progressive metal" tag next to their music! ^^ Guardian if anything is progressive metal; people just don't know what it even means. It's become a genre for bands with similar styles as DT, SyX that, in the end, aren't necessarily even as progressive as BG, Wuthering Heights...

    Saw you've listened to Zouille & Hantson too. God dammit Zouille's voice is still going strong after 30 years! \,,/ ^_^ Can't really comment on Hatnson as I don't know Satan Jokers that well. He hardly sings leads anyway... The new songs (or what are they; those English ones anyway) don't seem that bad either. :)

    Hiya! Do you know of the Russian black metal band Ashen Light? This song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOZdTKCRT4A is a bit of a phenom with a couple of my friends. One hates the repetitive keyboard lead very much and that's why I always play him the song. D: What say you about the singer? At least he's got attitude! :D

    Amidst my personal freaking out in the PM department I feel like linking you this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZDZuPqBjk0 I'd guess you know the clip. Royal Hunt - Last Goodbye from the live album "1996". D.C. Cooper is so freaking amazing on this one! Damn it looks so easy when one can really do it! ^^ Wanna see Royal Hunt live one day now that they're with Cooper again, if the live performance of the whole band is nowhere near that relaxed and easygoing! :) This performance is so symphatetic! :D Also hooked on that song! So very catchy, yet I'm a complete fan of its melodic structure too! :D

    Okay, so it was my imagination... Wonderful drawings and models! Hearing me doing Chris or Geoff vocals could take a while since I have no equipment nor conditions to record them. :)

    Also, is it just my imagination or did you just turn 27? o_O If so, congrats! :)

    Yes, the facial expressions seem one of those things that are learned from the model. Maybe many singers don't even recognize this, but normally they do faces because of their idols do, not because they'd have to. :P Then again, classically-trained singers hardly never do faces -- it's not a custom there. Okay, I guess people just usually imitate James Hetfield's rasp mannerisms (and very well at that) with their throat. Chris definitely forms the sounds somewhere in the throat, and I tend to agree: I know no other vocal style as consuming as the "Boltendahl sound" in falset. It's only followed closely by the "Boltendahl sound" without falset! :D Have spoken with a couple of friends with it: neither have I any idea how he has managed to retain his style all these years even as well as he has... I wear out after maybe one song when I'm singing what I consider sounding like Chris. :P

    Then again it could only require a certain setting in the vocal tract. I can do it a bit with low volumes, but not when I have to sing loud.

    Okay, I thought the lip movement gave away the affectation of the vibrato. I'm okay with your version though. :) About why I feel like I can do some rasps and some I don't... Chris's and in particular James Hetfield's own are formed in the throat. I can't determine what articulates, tremulates, against what, but it's in there, and it's really wearing (at least for me, at least the way I do it. And some of my friends, too. You know, the way people imitate James Hetfield's line-ending "-AH~!s". WHISKEY IN THE JARROUUWWAH~! :D (Near-)growls.) Whereas those more traditional, "bluesy" rasps, I think, are formed somewhere completely else. At least for me they seem less mimicable. Or at least I have no idea how to keep them going. Even where in my vocal tract to form them! I always thought it is a more natural feature of one's voice, not that easily learnable. That it is possibly voiced somewhere deep in the vocal tract. Possibly even having something to do with saliva secretion? :D Dunno.

    That said, I have extreme difficulties if I try to sing anything with my "own voice". I either don't know what kind of voice that should be, or it just sounds horrible! :D But isn't singing even consciously (or rather, not consciously) changing your voice towards more appealing one, having acted mannerisms? Let's say a singer controls his/her vibrato as I sure as hell can do as well. Isn't it so that it's not usually some "natural" vibrato, but the singers create it on purpose? Metal and even opera singers are usually seen moving their lips and throat in time with the vibrato. Many things like that. Isn't singing just voice acting in the first place for almost everyone? Picking up, practising and combining mannerisms? Not sounding as "natural" as possible with your "own" voice (if there is such a thing). I usually feel like people who can't sing more like don't have the nerve to throw themselves in such an "actor state" as singing would require, than actually lacking the needed talent.

    Tate is a completely different thing to sing than, say, even Dio. Dio is pretty close to my natural pitch; I think my head register has grown to be my strongest and most natural since I've tried to sing Kotipelto and Kiske stuff in my youth. :P I could do those pretty legit a few years ago, but since that, I think, alcohol and age have taken the necessary juice away from my high pitches. :( With Tate, however, I feel like I'm using my diaphragm more actively...? It even feels that the mindset I take (i.e. which singer's mannerisms I'm trying to do) even defines what my vocal range is at what time...? With "Tate" I can produce pretty high notes without falset, for example. One type of voice I can't produce at all, however, is this natural rasp like Jorn Lande, for example, has. Or how Hansi Kürsch easily switches between the cleans and rasp on the fly; I have freaking no idea how anyone's capable of doing that! Wouldn't flatter myself though; just copying those singers, good or bad.

    One more thing, random one: there seems to be a running gag amongst the Finnish metal heads that Shelton actually sings "lost in the kraaaapulaaas". It really begins to sound like it when you think about it, at least for the Finnish-understanding ear. :P "Krapula" means 'hangover'. :D

    Very pleasant sounding, his voice! Funny as it sounds, the overall soundscape on Crystal Logic album brings to my mind something filtered through some kind of an old long-distance phone sound packaging. I mean the phones used by army/police before the cell phones came. Vocals included! :D
