The mastermind behind the Metalocalypse series, who also does the voices for the majority of the characters on the show. Crazy talented vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter all around. I have yet to hear him belt higher than A4/B♭4, but judging by his ease on some of those notes, I'm sure he has it in him. His rasp in the fourth octave is absolutely killer...kinda combines the grittiness of someone like James Hetfield with the dramatic delivery of someone like Bruce Dickinson. Also has some pretty strong lows - Doomstar Requiem was littered with G2s all over the place. I know he's recorded other music outside of Dethklok though, and I haven't checked any of that. There's also a handful of other songs from Metalocalypse that feature clean singing that I haven't checked yet either, so I'll keep this updated as I go along.

Really talented musician and singer. Did you notewatch all the songs from "The Doomstar Requiem"? He provides the singing voice for most characters, really crazy showcase of diversity!

Yeah I did - he actually spans his entire range that I've heard so far between voicing Nathan Explosion and Dr. Rockzo in that. He also hits a nice beefy E2 in "Fata Sidus Oritur" while singing as one of the priests. Lowest note in the whole thing is sung by General Crozier, though, who hits a sick C2 in "A Traitor Amongst Them".

Unfortunately, I didn't realize that Brendon voices Murderface in it as well, so looks like I'll have to recheck all the songs that feature him to see what sorts of highs they have!

How's his vibrato? I hope he's able to pull it off better than McDowell...
