Voice type: Baritenor
Vocal range: E2-B♭5

Significant high notes:

  • B♭5 ("Dreamspace", "Thin Ice")
  • A5 ("Dreamspace", "Shattered", "Reign of Terror")
  • G♯5 ("Reign of Terror", "Thin Ice")
  • G5 ("Reign of Terror", "Dreamspace", "Break the Ice")
  • F♯5 ("Twilight Time")
  • F5 ("Madness Strikes at Midnight")
  • E5 ("Dear God")
  • E♭5 ("Future Shock", "Break the Ice", "The Hills Have Eyes", "Fire Dance Suite", "Twilight Time")
  • D5 ("Shattered")
  • C♯5 ("Hold On to Your Dream", "Madness Strikes at Midnight", "Kill the King", "We Are the Future", "Break the Ice", "The Hands of Time", "Dreamspace")
  • B4 ("Chasing Shadows", "We Are the Future", "Lead Us into the Light", "Out of the Shadows", "Twilight Time", "Eyes of the World", "Magic Carpet Ride", "Fire Dance Suite", "I Believe", "Father")
  • B♭4 ("Darkness", "Tears of Ice", "Night Screamer", "Fright Night", "Against the Wind", "Lead Us into the Light")

Significant low notes:

  • D3 ("Hymn to Life", "Dear God")
  • C♯3 ("Lead Us into the Light", "Tears of Ice")
  • C3 ("Dreamspace")
  • B♭2 ("Reign of Terror")
  • A2 ("Full Moon", "Fresh Blue Water", "Now I Understand", "Dear God")
  • G♯2 ("The Tower")
  • G2 ("Father")
  • F2 ("Thin Ice")
  • E2 ("Father")


By the Dreamspace album Tolkki's voice had gotten damn strong, it's weird he felt the need for a replacement. I think the title track of that album in particular has awesome vocals.

Is it Tolkki's voice doing the C6 at 4:35 here?

Don't forget the G5 at the end of "Break the Ice"!
Thanks for putting this thread up by the way. Smile


As for the C6, I have no idea, but it might be a sample. Can you find any live clips that might suggest it's him?


Also, nice C#5s here from 3:00:

Totally worth listening to the whole thing though. Tolkki sounds really solid here; would've been nice to hear him do occasional vocals still, after he gave lead vocals to Kotipelto.

Does 1:58 sound full to you guys? Also I can't figure out if it's B5 or Bb5.

Great guitar player and I like his singing. What's everyone's favorite of the albums Tolkki sang lead on? Dreamspace is definitely his best vocally, but my favorite of those albums is actually Twilight Time.

Gee, that's RIGHT between B♭5 and B5...I think it might be closer to B♭5, though. As for fullness, I have no idea because I don't know what the rest of his highs sound like, but it at least seems like a possibility...
