hehe ye i know, too bad because its such a good song. But that doesnt change the fact that Corey has one of a kind voice smile.gif

I think Corey is a baritone (could be wrong), he has that sort of nasal sound on the main vocal line, he's hardly projecting at all, although you can hear the harmonies in the falsetto and normal registers are much more pushed by support of his vocal line with good breathing and use of the diaphragm.

Truth is its quite hard to "emulate" someone elses sound and at the end of the day you dont need to directly copy someone elses voice because it can strain yours and of course it will be unoriginal if done twice.

Be quite interesting to have a run-down on how to produce that vocal distortion he manages on some of the darker more metal influenced songs though, a singing lesson on use of the false vocal chords would be handy, doesnt need to be death metal just a run-down on how to get that grainy distortion thats used by both Rock and Metal vocalists.

Hi...I went to youtube to hear the song...ther is some thin wrong with my adsl,,,,so I could not see at the link you posted...
anyway...Corey is multy singer...he has that beatiful voice like he sing in that song "Bother"..and that other "devlish" side wich we ca hear in the Silpknot songs....
for the clean voice....we could pracitise that..and try to get you to the stage where yoyu can sing like that....important thing is that you sing and combine the voice wich you talk normal and a ad the litlle breath to it...so you get that sentimental voice....easy way to do that if you upoad some of your singig here ad then I will tell you ehat needs to be done and hove to improve some thig if there is anything to improve..smile.gif

for that other voice...ghrol,,well taht is a diferent story..it needs parctise and stomack mussles at theyr best....so you would not rip of your voice every time...smile.gif
