Akerfeldt's vocals

Mikael Akerfeldt's growls and screams: do I really have to ask?

Quite simply, he's obviously doing SOMETHING different than everybody else, right?

What could it be?

Various demons, tortured souls, and other hellspawn.

Any other questions?
"So often our hands get caught up in ruts of muscle memory. 'Muscle memory' is an accurate term. We get used to doing certain things, without even being aware of them. This ultimately not only shapes and therefore limits our technique, it also shapes what we compose, what we write. We end up thinking still unknowingly trapped in that box." -Adam Nitti

Well, yeah...

How about if a regular guy WITHOUT access to the powers of hell wants to get a sound like that?

A while back, wasn't there a guy who came on here talking about some kind of interview in which Mike spoke about his vocal technique? If I recall, the guy got pissed and then refused to give up the link to the interviews...

Where might the said interviews be found? Do they even exist?

You need to be a level 25 to access the videos you speak of.

It's Mikes voice that makes him sound different.

I think there is maybe some mixing in his vocals, but other than that, he sounds similar to Aeon's Tommy Dahlstrom.
