Chris Cornell(Soundgarden,ex-Audioslave)vocal range


Name:Chris Cornell
Country:United States
Vocal type:Baritone
Range:3,5 octaves(F1-)B1-G5(-E6)

This is the most tech video about Chris´s voice and it´s perfect!
He has an strong Baritone voice,too heavy for a Tenor but high enough to reach an A5 or C6 on head voice(not falsetto),all of this full of extreme rage.

This video is a vocal test in Australia in 2012,Cornell is just singing random tunes but showing his potencial.Nice to watch as curiosity.

For full song screen I choose “Outshined” of Soundgarden(early 90´s) because this song is amazing,a classic of Metal or Grunge Rock.
Enjoy,share and follow =D

tAtU duet vocal range


Name:tAtu (Lena Katina and Yulia Volkova)
Country:Russia
Vocal Type:Lena(Light Lyric Soprano)
Yulia(Coloratura Mezzo_soprano)
Range:Both in studio(C#3-G#5)
Lena almost 3 octaves(C#3-D5-G#5)
Yulia 2 octaves (F3-G5)

Everyone reminds tAtU but never expected a tech post about their voices!I got crazy when I found it,thanks Alex Max =D

This video is perfect because shows all vocal development of both singers,since 1999,when they were just teenagers on “All the things she said” to best of(2011)
Lena Katina is considered a Light Lyric Soprano because she has a versatile voice,dominating chest and head voice and also knows to sing as Lyric Contralto.
Yulia Volkova has a specific timbre,so particular,but she´s really good on high head voice,sustaining the 5th octaves for long time on “Not gonna get us”.
I haven´t found their vocal ranges separetly but I guess their best song is “Not gonna get us” because of this G#5 head voice sustein.

Enjoy,share and follow =D

Lorde vocal range


Name:Lorde
Country:New Zeland
Vocal type:Contralto
Range:2,5 octaves(G#2-G#5)

Lorde has an incredible unique Contralto type!She´s really good on low notes(ever she´s just 16) but can reach clearly a G#5 on top head voice,all of this in a unique timbre!

I found this treasure of Lorde,even younger,on her first demo,reaching C#3-F#5,but also called Dugazon or Contralto.I´ve never heard this first classification,but I agree about Contralto.

For full song screen I choose “Royals” because it´s the only one I know (XD) but alson a really good track!
Enjoy,share and follow =D

Tobias Sammet (Edguy,Avantasia)Vocal range


Name:Tobias Sammet
Country:Germany
Vocal Type:Light Lyric Tenor
Range:4 octaves(E2-F#5(-E6))
He´s one of the best Metal vocalists!
Unfortunatelly I just found one video,but it´s really good and enough to explain his voice!
Let´s do it!!

So as Edguy or Avantasia,Tobias shows a Light Lyric Tenor voice,with huge amplitude,many possibilities of modulations and good skills on chest voice,but his highest notes are speedy and enlighted.
Most of his works are based on Hard Rock,and there´re most of Metal tenors we know,maybe it´s part of his skills.

For full song screen I choose “Avantasia-Lost in space” because of it´s equilibrium techs/comercial,chest/head voice,Metal ballad.
Wish you enjoy,share and follow :)

Gary Cherone(Extreme,ex-Van Halen) vocal range


Name:Gary Cherone
Country:United States
Vocal type:Low Tenor & Baritone(Baritenor)
Range:3,8 octaves(F#2-G#5)
Gary Cherone is an “extreme” tallented vocalist but unfortunatelly I just found one video to explain his voice,but lucky it´s a great video made by Timi T.

Gary is considered a Baritenor or a Low Tenor able to sing as Baritone.
He can reach heavy high notes,but his best skills are on chest voice,where all his streight lies.
As heavy notes are his skills,his best doble is Nuno Bittencourt,that makes a great duest on “More than words” as Light Lyric Tenor(and guitar hero).

So,I leave you with one of the best metal ballads EVER “More than words” by Extreme

Maria Callas vocal range


Name:Maria Callas
Country:Greece
Vocal type:Light Lyric Soprano
Range:3 octaves(F3-E6)
I recently acquired a Maria Callas´s albums.
I always knew she was amazing but “La Divina” proves it,note by note why she´s an eternal icon!
Unfortunatelly,I just found 1 video on youtube to prove all I´ll say,but it´s good enough.Let´s do it!

People use to say just she was Soprano,but her vocal quality shows no reason to ask “if” she´s Lyric,because she could do many different varielties on her voice,from chest to head.
She didn´t have wristle register,but her vibrato could push her E6 to F6.
Some people affirmates she´s a Dramatic Soprano because all stright she had on chest voice,but now we know we must see the full vocal spectre,not just the weight of chest voice.
That´s why she was a Light Lyric Soprano!

For full song screen,I didn´t choose just one Aria,but a compilation of the best ones!
“La Traviatta”,”Norma”,”Madame Butterfly” and much more!
