Sure, they "just sample" (which isn't the only thing that is going on most of the time) but I look at it this way: all the totally **************** classic rock music from the mid seventies onward is just some guitar god trying to put terrible lyrics to the same handful of chord progressions, with no grooving at all. The best rap has grooves, different progressions and just listen to A Tribe Called Quest for an example of damn impressive writing/delivery.

        James LaBrie??? really

        I love DT but I think this guy smokes LaBrie. He can mix up the clean with death metal or black metal vocals.

        I don't know if I'd say he has a ballsy voice but (to me anyway) he sure doesn't sound like an emo pussy like a lot of the metal guys do when they try to sing clean.

        He does la,la it up a bit in places (I think he's a big Freddie mercury fan, sounds it anyway) but I think the way he sings the verses in this tune is great (and I'm not really much of a fan of these guys, but i do like this tune).

        As far as metal bands with actual singers I think these guys are near the top (this is the band got me back into metal and turned me on to 7 string guitars)

            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:

            Except that isn't meant to be jazz. Derek Bailey is an acquired taste.

                    sorry, but the vocals turn it into quasi-powermetal cheese




                    It's the lame, exaggerated vibrato...



                    AND THE DRAGON COMES IN THE NIIIiIIIIIIIIiiiiIIIIIIIIGHT1-!

                    That being said, cheesy powermetal can rock, I surprised the bejeezus out of myself by enjoying Hammerfall live a few years back. A sense of humour and a bit of wit goes a long way for cheesy music.

                      nope, never heard it.



                      anyway, I love singing, i HATE cheesy powermetal falsetto Judas Priest/Iron Maiden imitation singing. To me, THIS is fantastic powerful singing:

                      Wow. Just... wow. I LOVED that.... The tones, the vocals, the song structure. I suddenly hear where Textures get some of their inspiration BRB, buying a bunch of Devin CDs.
