*Orange marks notes with questionable registers: absolutely no use figuring out these.
*Blue marks probable non-modal notes.
*Red marks extremely bad, unimpressive or unintentional notes.
*Italics mark non-sung notes.


Mainly known for his career as the second vocalist and the sampler of the metal band Tarot, Salmela is the right-hand man of Marco Hietala. Though a tad lighter and more nasally, Salmela owns an extremely similar approach to Hietala's, which allows them to harmonize really well, blending their voices into one. The Hietala-like strong vibrato is also present, and so are the extremely well controlled high notes.



I'd rank this as Salmela's best vocal performance.

This guy's got a great high voice.
I think we could find plenty of notes between D5 and F5 in his backing vocals, starting by "Undead Son" in live, maybe.
