    Hey guys, I've been spinning Unexpect a ton recently, and I noticed around the 2 minute mark of In the Mind of the Last Whale what seems to be an impossibly high shriek from the vocalist. I have no idea if that's actually her voice, but if it is, holy crap that's high! Has anybody here ever heard people doing this with their voice?

    Sounds like a human chick trying to emulate a whale squeak.

    Thanks for the link, they are a cool band.

    that's what I think it is too, I just find it incredible that somebody could actually do that with their throat. And yes, this band is freakishly talented. Check out the song Unresolved Ideas of a Distorted Guest.

    Haha. I'd forgotten I'd seen these, supporting Opeth and Mastodon a few years back. Yeah, decent band. Different, in a good way :)
