    They were distorted, as he recorded them in the past for the future. The time travel just screwed his vocals up a bit is all.

    He did mention that he would sit on the floor of the studio and 'cup' the microphone to give his voice a "Very distinctive sound to it". I really love the sound of his voice on EMDM. It sounds more.... seducing.. which is what he was aiming for. You And Me And The Devil Makes 3, sound a lot heavier with his vocals like that. He definatly did a different style of recording. On The High End Of Low, his voice might sound a little more "Natural", of you may, but Eat Me, Drink Me was a One-Take Record. The vocals were all one take. His vocals were a lot more RAW. I love it.

    I can never tell if the pitch is intentional or not, always thought it was part of his style since it shows on other albums.

    He said that he held a ribbon mic between his hands laying on the floor singing and the ribbon mic isn't supposed to be held that way. This setup resulted in the tone of voice you heard. Moreover, the sound was raw without too much production or layering except for some songs. It was a raw, honest album recorded in an amateurish,experimental spirit like BV and even more raw. That's all.

    Cupping the mic also eliminates the mic's polarity pattern (the directions from which the mic pickups sound) because the voice is being funneled through the hands, so it's easier to push the mic harder for more breakup, and also let's you get a more close/intimate sound. Some bands use it as a trick to compensate for their lack of power live (especially screamers live) but MM hasn't ever seen like a cupper in that aspect so I imagine it was just more for that "close up" sound.

    He's been cupping the mic on and off at some of his recent shows. That close-up effect tends to drown out the rest of the band and doesn't sound too good when everything is being half screamed. The only loss the band may have to compensate for is the loss of Manson's voice. The intimacy will still be there with a good balance of dynamics.

    Manson just wanted to sing like some psychotic goth crooner, and it happened.

    Definitely there is a magic to EMDM no one appreciated it back in the day.

    The vocals sound kinda whiny to me. There are some weird vocal effects as well. Never really liked them. With Holywood-styled vocals this would be one of my favorite records tbh, because the rest is really stellar, besides a few cheesy lyrics.
