Above is an insta post of me singing "here without you" by 3 doors down. Ever since i started singing, i hav been singing this way and not sure what voice type am i? (Tenor or bass?)

To the original question about distortion, are you trying to distort your voice? It doesn't sound to me like you are doing this intentionally. If you are doing it intentionally, I am unsure why you would do this. The distortion if intentional doesn't sound safe which leads me to my next point. You are not using any form of support at all and you are using a ton of air. If you are singing this way it will only be a matter of time before you blow out your voice. Continuously doing this will eventually lead to your inability to sing. Try to sing cleanly and until you gain the knowledge to properly distort (trust me this is a VERY advanced topic). Avoid songs that require you distort unless you want to deviate from the original singer with a clean version (which is artistically acceptable)
In KTVA we are unconcerned with vocal fach (voice type). We view the voice as one, with parts that must work together to form a functional whole much like you would view your leg. There are multiple muscles involved and even joints but what is most important is how to get leg to function as a unit to get you where you want to go.
You are using chest in this song. Mixed is a more advanced idea IMO men often don't have it naturally because men often have a very underdeveloped head voice.
Hopefully this helps you with your questions.

Thanks for the feedback!
Im not doing it intentionally, it comes when i open my throat inside.
I did a research on my voice before and i dont get anything similar to mine. I was guessing im singing with both my false n main chord together?
I found only a handful of singers that may come close to my type of voice
Mayb can you help access too? (I apologise as i post chinese songs)
And possibly nickelback?
I need some feedbacks as i hope to unlock this puzzle of my voice. Thanks in advance
But the query i had posted in response of huduvudu, i may still need some answers to better understand.
Thanks in advance!
What you plan to do with your voice will dictate which things you focus on and which things that you ignore. If you don't like certain genres of music and you know that you won't sing them then some of the things that you would have to learn to do them might allow you to ignore their problems. Time is a finite resource and we must spend this resource in ways that get us to our goals.
YPOng, I don't think that looking at your voice like a puzzle is a good way to approach singing. I think that looking at your voice as a tool that you can use to do something is a better way. You are wasting a lot of time trying to find others that have a similar type of voice as you. You will never complete this and if you come close you will find no satisfaction in it. A better way would be to start to learn the fundamentals of singing. From your performance you really need better fundamentals for your voice to really come through. As it stands now you are headed down a path that will waste a lot of your time and bring you nothing in return.
Hope this clarifies.
I think i wasted alot time finding similar singers that match my voice to try learn.
I will look at the fundamentals videos from ken's channel and find a vocal coach to further guide me.
Thanks from singapore!!
