Sebastian Bach's incredibly powerful voice needs to be heard. He is technically a fantastic singer, with an extremely powerful distortion technique and a generally effortless range. The boyish lightness of his voice and the soft, albeit solid, lower register definitely indicate a natural tenor voice.

1. 0:00 - B2s from "How Long Can I Resist", Sebastian's voice is surprisingly fitting for progressive metal!
2. 0:18 - B2s from "This Is Gonna Hurt".
3. 0:28 - Surprisingly strong B♭2s from "Dream Forever". (He also sings some very brief F2s at points)
4. 0:49 - B♭2s from the cover of "C'mon and Love Me", originally by KISS.
5. 0:59 - B♭2s from "Superjerk, Superstar, Supertears".
6. 1:16 - C3s and a brief A2 from "My Enemy".
7. 1:26 - Sung C3s, and a spoken A2, from "Just One More".
8. 1:39 - A spoken G♯2 from "I Killed You".
9. 1:43 - Couple of short A2s and G♯2s from "In an Empty Room", there's also a brief G.
10. 2:06 - Whispery but solid G2s from "Play in the Clouds".
11. 2:27 - A G2 from "Push the Button".
12. 2:32 - A whispery G2 from "Fan Mail".
13. 2:43 - Two solid G2s from "Who Made You Do It (Version 2)".
14. 2:52 - A short F♯2 from "What Kind of Animal".
15. 3:00 - Awkward spoken passage from "Spider Love" bottoming around F2.
16. 3:17 - Bach's lowest note, a dark spoken D2 from "Push the Button".

17. 3:21 - Time for Bach's classic high singing! The first clip has a great tenor high D (D5) from the ending of "Slave to the Grind".
18. 3:28 - An extremely raw D5 from" Push the Button".
19. 3:42 - An impressive sustained B4 and a sung D5 from "Can't Stand the Heartache".
20. 3:58 - Amazing singing from "Livin' on the Chain Gang" - Bach sings melody around D.
21. 4:25 - A lenghty D5 from "Angel Down", the note touches E♭5 briefly before descending lower.
22. 4:38 - An emotional E♭5 from "Wasted Time"
23. 4:56 - A brutal sustained D5 from "My Enemy", which briefly touches E around the ending - Notice the awesome rasp! Bach's the master of controlled distortion technique.
24. 5:09 - A mindblowing, lenghty E5 from "In a Darkened Room".
25. 5:30 - The classic ending of "18 and Life" topping at E5.
26. 5:45 - A loooong D5 (with a trill up to F) from "(Love Is) A Bitchslap".
27. 6:03 - A very raw E5 from "Beat Yourself Blind".
28. 6:23 - A powerful F5 from "The Threat".
29. 6:33 - Another classic note by Bach: the blistering F5 from "I Remember You".
30. 6:53 - Heady, light E♭5s and F♯5s from "In an Empty Room".
31. 7:20 - A facemelting F♯5 from the intro of "Monkey Business".
31. 7:33 - Same note live, Bach accidentally overshoots the note - hitting a short G5 instead - before landing on the proper pitch. (Yokohama, 1995)
32. 7:47 - A spectacular, sustained F5 with a trill up to G5 from Bach's best vocal performance, "Quicksand Jesus".
33. 8:11 - Amazing G5s from "Livin' on a Chain Gang".
34. 8:50 - Two sustained E5s with trilled G5s from "Midnight/Tornado".
35. 9:12 - "Riot Act" with an insane sung melody around G5!
36. 9:29 -A powerful sustained E5 with a trill up to G, the song is called "Here I Am".
37. 9:36 - Bach's highest full voice note, a very chesty A5 from the demo version of "18 and Life".
38. 9:44 - Bach and Axl Rose's duet, Aerosmith's "Back in the Saddle", with both of the duo singing up to G♯5s.
39. 9:57 - A slide up to A5 from "Big Guns", this is full voice too!
