I risk to say Kyo is the best male vocalist alive. Not only his vocal range is totally absurd, how he expresses his emotions is beyond passionate. And how many vocalists can improve their voices over time like him? Listen to Missa or Gauze and now. He's a monster, almost super human!

BTW I saw some shmuck claiming Kyo's range was G1-C9 on a YT comment.

 

1 ) The highest note any person ever hit was E8 (and it sounded really bad, the previous record holder that could go as high as Eb8 sounded much better). That's eight semitones below C9, more than half an octave.

2) While Kyo's has reached G#7 it's definitely not good sounding nor controled. And it's 1 octave and 4 semitones below C9. One octave has 12 semitones btw.

3) The highest note people from The Range Place count on his range is E6 since people there are really picky when it comes to counting stuff on vocal ranges. That's 2 FUCKING OCTAVES and 8 SEMITONES below C9. A piano only goes up to C8, but if it did go up to C9, this person would get the wrong note for fucking 32 piano keys.

 

Here's Kyo's profile on The Range Place

Here's an explanation on how vocal range works:

What’s the usual standard? More than half their records sound like hot rubbish.  It should be rated on songwriting anyway. 

I'm glad someone understands this.

I went down that youtube rabbit hole literally yesterday, and there're some things that started making sense for me (apparently hitting forced, unnatural, cringey notes at the tail end of a dolphin mating calls before dropping it for a farty raspy growl hypothetically earns one Real Metal Scene Cred from the Academically Trained Chanteuses? that their 00'-'05 output didn't have the larynx abuse range for?);

 

it also makes sense that they "graduated" for a tryhard Real Band status and intentionally started driving away their old fans with the choices of literally everything

 

however, what still does not make sense for me is Kyo and everyone else in the band pretending they don't realize how shitty she sounds with the current attempts at hitting a note that a Joe Looney from The Averages (idk what straights currently listen to in this genre sorry xx) won't bother torturing himself with

 

deg youtube comments are generally wild tho.

The thing is though, none of this matters, because Kyo's voice was replaced with a Vocaloid in 2012 when his vocal cords got scrambled. That's why he suddenly started "singing" high. That's why it was such a big deal when they "lost their tracks" mid-live.  That's why it takes so long to make these records. Prove me wrong.

That macabre song just doesn't grow on matter how much i listen to it, sounds boring.

 

Oh and if were talking about vocal range than there are tons and literally tons of people who can compete with kyo and might even leave him behind.

I did extensive research finding such monsters.

 

Heres my thread that may interest a some people.

Seems like a troll post but you say "Prove me wrong" at the end.

 

Sure. They then came out after a short time and played a completely off-the-cuff set without any bells or whistles. Kyo sounded great.

I wouldn’t even throw Macabre into the equation. Yeah it’s an epic, but it doesn’t follow the same formula as the other three. The reason why Zetsuentai misses the mark is because it sounds like a copy of a copy. I love the atmospheric parts and the groovy heavy sections, but the fast part with Shinya’s trademark Fisher Price blast beat is boring as fuck. Especially since they do the same fucking thing right before it in Keigaku no Yoku!!!

Damn i mixed up the names, i was talking about 'Keigaku no Yoku' being the best track from the album not 'Zetsuentai'.

 

Keigaku no Yoku is the only track which got stuck in my head after first listen, other one is ranunculus. 

 

All the other tracks sounds all over the place.
