Hi guys!I've been listening to this amazing power metal band lately called Blind Guardian that has an incredible singer.I was wondering if you guys could tell how he sings so high?For example here in 1:46 link
It sounds like a chesty sound but I'm not sure ?What register does this guy use in order to sing so high?Chest seems almost impossible.Usually on studio he even adds more grit to his voice especially in very high notes such as A5 , G#5 and it sounds so chesty.How does he do that?
P.S. I've heard he is a baritone or a high baritone
Here is a studio version link
Sounds like some kind of head voice. Roger Taylor had a similar quality to his voice, sometimes you can't really tell what register he's in (Death On Two Legs intro Bb5, link. But Roger is a tenor of course.
