I’m a fan of Arnel Pineda! Kinda hard not to be when everyone hereabouts makes a big deal about his being Filipino. I don’t know what it is, but I don’t see many other countries raising such a hullabaloo whenever someone from their country makes it big. Eh, nationalism.
Yup, Pineda has an excellent vocal range, but I don’t think he quite manages 6 octaves like Dimash does. Seeing that number alone is enough to make me skeptical, but there’re videos of him hitting whistle notes like he’s taking potshots at ducks!
Another group I like talking about is Epica. They’re among the first few symphonic metal groups I really got into, and the vocalist just has a beautiful tone to her voice that’s addictive. I’ve not kept up with their recent work though, I mostly listen to stuff from their first studio release or thereabouts (not that they’ve gotten any worse or anything, I’m just slow to adopt new music, haha):
Speaking of bottle-red hair, I’m somewhat on the fence about this one artist named Emilie Autumn. I love how atypical her music is, and I really just find it fun to listen to, but speaking as someone in the mental health field I can’t quite decide whether I’m alright with how she uses mental health to market herself; that’s one hell of a Google rabbit hole in itself.
^Not quite representative of her style, but my favourite song by her. She usually goes for grungier, industrial tones.
