What mode is this guy (Jarmo Pääkkönen) singing?

Postby the-reaper » Sun Oct 05, 2014 12:06 pm


I wondered, in where mode is this guy singing higher notes? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDUNkX7i3zI&list=UU6mWZmzxkJTm5x41e-R2fbw The whole song is quite a high to male singer, but the end of the song is freaky. If you listen from 3:15 to the end, you hear that highest notes are really loud and screamy. Is that edge and is it possible for everyone to master this kind of singing?

Thank you!

If you mean the screams done in F5 (at 3.38 and the end of the song), I would say they are Metal-like Neutral with added distortion here and there. Pretty hard notes I have to admit, but not that rare though. So I don't see why any man couldn't learn to do them. I would start with Edge around high C (C5) on work my way up and let go of the metal gradually. That's how I learned to do them. Although F5 might be still a bit too high for me :D

Sounds like a path of mainly:

Overdrive middle/high
E-like N/very high (maintaining the Edge setting and losing metal the higher he goes)
Effect: Distortion mainly.

Anyone can learn this.
