Isn't he a tad too low to be an high baritone?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0YHT4EQ6Yw Here's a low tenor imitating Ian's tone and timbre quite easily.

tbh I've never heard anything baritonish about Ians voice, and that includes HB.

Dat Tiny Range.

I like Joy Division, for the record.

There are tons of singers in Post Punk/Goth/Indie bands that put on faux Ian Curtis voices. It's a put on deep voice not his natural tone.

He's clearly doing the typical "gothic deep vocals" and darkening hs voice. If you don't believe it check out this two LOW TENORS:


0:40


0:44

Only checked the first clip but that's not really what Ian is doing. Neither is there anything gothic about it. Still darkening his voice though, Ian I mean.
But he DID pretty much start the trend amongst post-punk bands like Spydr said. Then came Editors, White Lies, Interpol etc.

Unfortunately, I don't know his voice well enough to suggest an operatic classification, so it looks like I'm going to have to resort to getting butthurt and complaining about TRP classifications instead. Party

I consider him a high baritone range- and timbre-wise. He is obviously lowering the fuck out his larynx to sound convincingly lower, but I don't think he has that natural tenor brightness either. A high bari, I say.

A2/B♭2 in the Unknown Pleasures version of "She's Lost Control", strangely I can't properly tell the exact pitch of the whole song, seems to be kinda in between. And it's "Day of the Lords" btw

I think he's the perfect example of a baritenor. He doesn't sound like a tenor nor a baritone but he's got bits of both
