Known For Vocals:
As the lead singer and drummer of American post-hardcore/math rock band, "Hail The Sun".
Whilst the super childlike voice in post-hardcore is getting more stale by the day, the progressive edge to Hail The Sun's music gives them a fresher sound than most in the genre, and if a little piercing, Melero's talent as a singer should be acknowledged.
A vibrant, brash, somewhat whiney voice, with an incredibly high tessitura, belting out D5s as easily as most men speak C3s. Vocally, and genre-wise, the natural comparison would be Cedric Bixler-Zavala, and I'd be surprised if the music of "At The Drive In" and "The Mars Volta" weren't significant influences.
While his control over his high range is excellent, soaring up into the 5th octave effortlessly, Melero's low range isn't the strongest. This is understandable considering how high his voice naturally sits. Most of his lows tend to be backing vocals; a shared duty between himself and the notably lower, darker voice of lead guitarist, Shane Gann.
Another talking point would have to be Melero's dual role as both lead vocalist and drummer. An odd combination, and one I imagine would be extremely physically tiring.

Best Vocal Performances:
1. Railmaster
2. Sleep Now, And Forever Wet Your Dreams
3. Sunny Day
4. Orion
5. Dinosaur, God Hates It When We Think
6. There's Plenty Of Fish In The Sea (Too Bad You're Not A Fish)
7. Ready Or Not, There I Go
8. Crying Is Only Manly If Splinters Come Out

Notewatched Material:
"POW! Right In The Kisser!" - 2010 ("Hail The Sun" LP)

Oops Laughing sorry. It was pretty late when I started this thread. I'll fix it.
