Ximares is a YouTube singer, that mostly covers Japanese songs, such as from Anime and Vocaloid. A variety of English-based song covers can also be found on his channel. His voice is often described as very low and deep, due to the fact that he's a baritone. However, he's also able to change his vocal type depending on the style of the chosen songs. An example of this would be his cover of "Poison Kiss" (circa 9k views), where he sang as four different singers. He's able to sing extremely low notes, as shown in his cover of "Miku's Extremely Low Range Test", as well as jumping octaves while singing. Ximares is also known for arranging, transcribing and remixing existing songs, which he as well uploads to his YouTube channel. His most known Arrangement is the "Chapter 1 BGM" from the videogame Corpse Party, while his most known Transcription is "Cohen's Masterpiece" from the videogame Bioshock. Besides singing, arranging, transcribing and remixing, Ximares works on originals and instrumentals as well.
His most viewed singing video is his cover of "Miku's Low Scale Test". To test his abilities, he tuned down the instrumental of "Miku's Low Scale Test" by twelve semitones and sang over it, and he called the cover "Miku's Extremely Low Range Test".
