I'm curious to what mode some singers are using for notes above high E (E2? E5 in scientific) - many singers I like seem to be using a similar setup.
At the high note here 1:07:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0CxOTheRJk
Or here 1:52:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywHM7h1ZMuQ
I'm thinking neutral with flageolet tension and distortion? Thing is I used to be able to do neutral with flageolet tension very easily up to soprano D a long time ago - I can't really do it now anymore after learning to sing all modes in the high and very high part. I can get this flageolet thing going for a second but it always flips to neutral without air.
Here is a very old clip of me playing with it:https://www.box.com/s/9fcf35879238117b1237
Was I using the same mode? And if yes, how can I find it again?

"I'm thinking neutral with flageolet tension and distortion? "
I agree. I thought that you pretty much couldn't sing that high without flageolet tension?

You/they are all in Neutral (light sound color) with some different effects. (Creaking, Distortion, Rattle.)
Because of the pitch we (males) have to use flageolet.
Why you cant do the flageolet sound from earlier is hard to say.
Maybe your own explanation of your vocal process explains it best:
You been practicing and focusing on something else for a while, and now, what used to be easy, is now something you have to remember and relearn.
Theres nothing suggesting that because you have learned one sound it will overrule the other.
-The support value that your body now knows that it needs for the full metal/new sounds etc., is maybe very different from the support sensation you used to work with for the high notes that are now tough to handle.
You just have to reconnect with it again.
