Wade MacNeil

Post  press-eject on Tue Aug 16, 2016 6:54 pm



Voice type: Angry Canadian Tenor
Vocal range: C♯2-E5

Though he rose to prominence as the lead guitarist and backing vocalist of the influential post-hardcore act Alexisonfire, Wade MacNeil has also found success with the UK-based hardcore punk group Gallows. He also fronts the Canadian punk band Black Lungs. Much of MacNeil's vocal output is manic screaming, but he nevertheless demonstrates great melodic control of his distinctive husky tenor.

Significant high notes:
E5 ("Bored")
D5 ("Bored", "Snowbird")
C♯5 ("California Evil", "Cult of Mary", "Vapid Adolescent Blues")

B♭4 ("Boiled Frogs", "Cross of Lorraine", "Death Is Birth", "Deathsmarch", "Desolation Sounds", "Hey, It's Your Funeral Mama", "Leather Crown", "Nations | Never Enough", "No Rest", "Pagan Holiday", "That Girl Possessed", "Waterwings (And Other Poolside Fashion Faux Pas)", "Wayfarer Youth", "Young Cardinals")
A4 ("Cease To Exist", "Class of 98", "Death Voices" rehearsal, "Hate Hate Hate", "Hold Fast (Sink or Swim)", "In Memory", "Mondo Chaos", "Outsider Art", "Snowbird", "So It Goes", "Stay Out of Parkdale", "These Moments Define Us", "Valley Of the Dolls", "White Devil")

E3 ("93/93", "Boiled Frogs" acoustic, "Bonfire Season", "Chains", "Cult of Mary", "Death Voices" rehearsal, "For the Love of Ivy", "Outsider Art")
E♭3 ("Born and Raised" acoustic, "Chains", "Desolation Sounds", "The Kennedy Curse", "You Burn First")

Open question: I'm pretty new to this forum, so what's the general accepted policy for multiple close notes from one song? I've seen other threads where people are told to limit the amount of notes from one individual song, but I left my repetitions in because they're the only recorded instances of the singer in question hitting those notes. Should I remove some of the You Burn First notes? If so, which? I figure the C♯2 should stay because it's his only recorded C♯2. The E♭2 seems important too since it's his lowest sung note.

It depends on the singer/situation.

I would normally say 3 highs and 3 lows.

However, this seems like a different situation that there are 4 distinct significant lows.

So, you're fine.

P.S You might want to put parentheses around the different note categories.

Like this.

E5 ("Bored")
D5 ("Bored", "Snowbird")
C♯5 ("California Evil", "Cult of Mary", "Vapid Adolescent Blues")

But keep the colors.
