*Underlines mark notes that are obscured in the song mix.
*Grey marks prominent vocal fry notes.
*Italics mark non-sung notes.
*Blue marks soft falsetto notes or whistle screams.


What can you say? It's Devin fucking Townsend! Not only is he one of the coolest dudes in modern heavy music but he's also not afraid to do whatever the hell he wants be it country, death metal, new age, or pop. Vocally we all know he has an utterly insane high range capable of being soft, dramatic and vibrato laden, all out screaming, or any shade inbetween. In addition to this though he's made more and more use of his low range over the years to the point where it's become a regular feature of his style. Check out songs like Thing, Ih-Ah, or Forever to get a good taste of that and while you're at it listen to the rest of his discography too because you've been putting it off too long (let's face it you know you have).

DISCLAIMER: While this OP looks pretty huge, it's undergoing considerable revision primarily by Sandblasted  and myself. All albums are being rechecked. As always you can all offer your own verdicts on certain notes or share anything else you find since the guy has tons of bonus material to check too.

Voice type by Sandblasted.

Yeah I've done that with a handful of threads now. It's just for my own arbitrary amusement though, but anyone who wants to join in is free to!
