Same here. Darrel Wane is probably the vocalist I hate the most in metal music right now. My bass player thought the exact same thing as me when he first heard Nevermore, "This music is so awesome... then the vocals came in and totally ruined it for me. I'd buy an album if he wasn't the singer." I don't know if I'd consider him a bad singer, but he sings in a way that grates on my nerves. Almost like his notes don't match what he's singing to. But not in the cool dischordant way I like. More in that I-want-to-stick-knives-in-my-ears way. I actually really like Casey's vocals, so I can't really compare them at all.
