An attempt at note watching a death metal vocalist. Dunno how far I'm gonna go with this, but David Vincent in the famous bassist and vocalist of the great Morbid Angel from 1987-1996 and then again from 2004 to present day. He's kind of an odd character and I don't know why he decided to impersonate Nikki Sixx lately but he has one of the most classic death metal voices, and has over time developed a very pitched approach to his vocals. In addition he has a deep, bassy speaking voice and a great low range.

Cool thread, was always curious about his low register, don't know if you'll find any more highs tho, unless there's some shrieks on "Altars of Madness" (haven't listened in awhile)

Eerie monologue from around 4:00-4:15 with lows around at least E♭2:

Nice to see someone else is interested in this thread, and Sandblasted judging from what I've read of your music taste here I think we'd get along famously.Smile 

Also wow those were some strong B1s!

Are there any other old school MA songs you remember with parts like that? Also for highs I guess I could check live performances of recent years where he uses that cleaner vocal approach on old songs. His earlier vocal approach had all kinds of overtones that make it hard to pitch like a lot of pure death metal vocalists.

Not that I can remember for the most part, admittedly I haven't listened to them extensively for a few years, but from what I can tell, that right there is the first example of him using clean vocals of any sort (let alone clean singing which didn't happen until "God of Emptiness"), that said I do recall some stuff from Covenant-Domination era that might be of interest:

There's a fairly faint B♭1 on "I spill BLOOD" at 2:11:


Some Gregorian style E♭2s in the chorus, and a really low, fryish almost Steele sounding section from 3:09 - 3:25 that I don't even dare try to pitch:

Damn that was weird. I definitely hear at least some solid A1s but I think it slides down to E1 at the end and at a few other points but hard to tell. It reminds me of Steele in Cinnamon Girl.

Take a gander at David singing some country here:

Cool to see he's actually capable of singing well in key and everything. He's definitely got the right kind of voice for this style. Nothing too crazy range wise aside from some nice melodic A2s and B2s though.
