    listen to this and tell me death metal vocals wouldn't have worked over the verses here? sure they would've of.

    you can sing clean and not sound like a wimp.









    Yet these bands have sold more tickets and albums than Nevermore, a band that was metal as ****************, and had a melodic frontman who sang with balls.

        Is this supposed to be an example of a ballsy strong voice? 'cause it sounds like James LaBrie.

                      • I can enjoy just about every music ever made, at least in part... The exception for me is that Derek Baily improv jazz ****************. Modern cookie monster Metal may not seem very musical compared to your music of choice, but it does still have basic musical structure unlike this:

                            Really? I think his SYL stuff is awful with a few exceptions and love nearly everything else he's done. Not a huge fan of the last two Devin Townsend Project albums, though. A little too ridiculous. But other than that Ocean Machine, Acclerated Evolution, Ki, Terria, Physicist (which he hated), Addicted, and so on I thought were fantastic.



                            This song is very simple, but it's just... Devin.

                            Anyway, to each his own, I guess, but Devin really struck a chord in me and made me enjoy a style of music I never would have normally bothered with.

Not a huge fan of the last two Devin Townsend Project albums, though. A little too ridiculous. But other than that Ocean Machine, Acclerated Evolution, Ki, Terria, Physicist (which he hated), Addicted, and so on I thought were fantastic.



                              This song is very simple, but it's just... Devin.












                              Anyway, to each his own, I guess, but Devin really struck a chord in me and made me enjoy a style of music I never would have normally bothered with.

                                oh, and for the record, the singer from Anaal Nathrakh > most metal singers. He can do anything from screetching to grunts to powerful operatic vocals. Listen to the refrain, which is an interpretation from a famous opera (starts at 13):

                                again, no cheesy powermetal falsetto
