And the mystery singer is...Oganalp Canatan of Dreamtone!

I can't believe none of you guessed him!  I guess you just weren't used to hearing him sing in Turkish!

Today, I finally get to reveal to you that the mysterious, haunting, otherworldly vocals you heard in the sample are provided by none other than Dreamtone's Oganalp Canatan.

Unlike many of you, I had never heard of Oganalp or his band Dreamtone before he appeared on Korsair's song Prototype X.  I was impressed by the professional quality of Oganalp's voice, so I began messaging him on myspace, hoping I would eventually get a chance to work with him again, either on Legend's Ghost or on another project.  But I honestly wasn't sure when that would be, since I thought I had all of the singers I needed for awhile.

However, I had been thinking of adding some mysterious, otherworldly vocals to one of the songs that was originally supposed to be instrumental.  I wanted someone who could sing in a foreign language that most native English speakers wouldn't immediately recognize.  I figured that when I found the right person, he could sing in his native language.  One day, I had an epiphany and realized Oganalp would be perfect for the part.  So I sent him the lyrics in English and asked him to translate them into Turkish.  The result exceeded my expectations, and I hope to post a larger portion of Oganalp's work on the song later this week.  (It will not be the full song, because I want some things to be a surprise when Gatekeepers finally is released!  And it will be this year!)
