Most Unusual Voices In Rock Music TodayThe most unusual and unique voices in rock music today...
The Top Ten
Alex Turner of the Arctic Monkeys might not have the biggest range in the world but this guy certainly has one unusual style of singing his humorous lyrics.
His tonal versatility is so unique that most of his songs sound like duets - as if there are 2 completely different singers. It sounds awesome because he switches skillfully from harsh demonic tone to beautiful, soft, angelic and melancholic voice (and vice versa). And it happens in less than a second! I've never heard anything like that. Add to this his godly range, immense power and control (even live). This is also the most emotive and expressive voice I've ever heard.
Demons And Wizards - My Last Sunrise, Love's Tragedy, Crimson King;
Blind Guardian - Sacred Worlds, Majesty, Time What Is Time, Fly, The Curse Of Feanor, Otherland.
Overall, he's one of the elite rock/metal singers today. His skills place him in one league with Freddie, Steve Perry, Chris Cornell, Michael Kiske, Rob Halford, Axl Rose, to name a few of his caliber. - Metal_Treasure
He sounds like Freddie Mercury - literally. As a bonus, he also looks like Freddie.
He is a lead singer for the official Queen tribute band called The Queen Extravaganza. Queen Extravaganza was an idea of Roger Taylor and Brian May (Queen members), and they personally selected the members of the tribute band after a very tough world-wide contest. The auditions for The Queen Extravaganza were originally submitted online and over 2 million were reviewed. - Metal_Treasure
Unique range, probably the widest range in music history:
Vocal/melodic range - 6 octaves, 1/2 note (Eb1 to E7).
Sings: Alternative metal, Avant-garde metal, Experimental metal, death metal (early). - Metal_Treasure
Kellin Quinn of Sleeping with Sirens has quite a unique voice for a guy. One could never make out that it's a guy singing the songs if he never heard of sleeping with sirens. Kellin sounds a little girly but he has got one hell of a hardcore voice which goes up like an angel...
Kellin Quinn has such a unique voice for a male vocalist. It is near impossible to replicate. He does sound akin to a girl, however, this is what makes him stand out.
I HATE IT SO MUCH WHEN PEOPLE SAY KELLIN SOUNDS LIKE A GIRL! I'm a girl who apparently can sing and I have like no vocal range. Kellin has the beautiful voice of an angel...
KELLIN doesn't SOUND LIKE A GIRL, GIRLS SOUND LIKE KELLIN QUINN
Unique and rare type of voice - baritenor (baritone's voice, tenor's range). Sounds awesome. Hypnotizing voice. A very dark combination of Jim Morrison, Ozzy and Elvis.
Songs: How The Gods Kill, Mother. - Metal_Treasure
A voice with (almost) operatic power. Louder than usual.
Check out: Melancholy, Dracula, Dante's Inferno (by Iced Earth). - Metal_Treasure
Andrew Stockdale has got to have one of the biggest ranges in rock today. The Aussie has quite a unique sounding voice which kinda sounds orgasmic...
His range is not very wide but he's good in the higher register. I agree his voice sounds orgasmic and it's pretty unique. Reminds me of Robert Plant.
His vocal/melodic range: 2 octaves, 5-1/2 notes (B2 to G#5). - Metal_Treasure
Jack White has one of the most unique voices and guitar playing style in the world. A true genius who made the blues cool again to this generation.
Adam Levine of the Maroon 5 has one of the sexiest male voices today. Its near impossible to replicate his voice and accent with which he sings his songs.
Absolutely nothing special here, let alone unusual or unique. - Metal_Treasure
He can do both clean vocals and growls, and very often he switches between them within one song. Sometimes he sings on the borderline and this technique sounds really cool and interesting (example - 'Sacrificial' by Moonspell).
His clean voice is hypnotizing and unusually low for rock and metal, where higher voices are preferred. - Metal_Treasure
Brandon Flowers of the Killers has one of the most emotional and soulful voices in rock... Which is also pretty unique sounding. No one could sing when you were young with the same emotion that he does.
Rocco deluca might be pretty quite underrated however, that can't take away the fact that he has got one of the most soulful and beautiful voices in rock today. A true gift... Of a voice...
Emily rocks. She can go from lyrical ballads to grunge in a single breath. I don't think there is another single female rocker like her out there. And she is self-taught, on top of it.
Emily Armstrong and her band Dead Sara is quite new and underrated but this tall lady has the most hardcore voices I've ever heard... Her voice can go as high as her height.
Julian Casablancas and his band the Strokes! They are responsible of making indie rock cool and popular. Julian is known for his beautiful melodies and lyrics and his unusual way of singing them.
17#! What! He should be number one, that guy has such a beautiful unusual voice!
Ronnie Radke of Falling in Reverse has a unique and hardcore voice irrespective of what he sings. Metal, rock, hip hop... This guy is singing everything now a days. But whatever he sings... He does it with lots of power and swagg...
Mark's voice is impossible to miss. I bet no one has a voice similar to his. (ps. the first time my mother listened to Helena Beat my mother thought Mark was a girl... )
