The Deepest Male Vocalist Ever Is.... !

Barry White?

Leonard Cohen?

Lee Hazlewood?

Paul Robeson?

Chris Barnes? (Cannibal Corpse)

Andrew Eldritch? (Sisters Of Mercy)

John Entwhistle? (The Who)

Calvin Johnson? (Beat Happening)

Maybe someone else???


Who is the deepest of them all?

Most importantly... why?

Although I never expect music fans to have taken courses in audio concepts or vocal techniques, questions like these are a great way for anyone to try to wax technical about timbre without knowing where to start -- which makes the answer all the more awesome.

Go ahead. You try it. Who's the deepest mofo of the bunch?

Nils Frykdahl of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum. Not only can he hit very low notes, he sings them with a particularly low-sounding timbre, which really sounds amazing. Even more amazing is that he has an incredible falsetto as well.

Pete Steele of Type O Negative?

A prime example would be his low tones at the end of 'In Praise of Bacchus' from the album 'October Rust'. He sounds like an 8 foot tall gregorian monk!

Ivan Rebroff. German-born of Russian Jewish parents, he sang a lot of Russian folk music as well as classical repertoire. *Seriously* deep voice, well worth checking out.
