    :agreed:

    @Metal Ken, yeah the screamer stuf just wasn't my thing. I grew up listening to alt rock so I just could never get into it no matter how hard I tried. There are some exceptions though, like Jens Kidman and that guy from Devil Driver.

    Downspell has some cool vocals if you've heard of em. Really insane death metal, I love them.

    @Blexican, yeah sorry, I really steered this off course!

    Listening to it for the second time after a while without listening to the older version now made me like Casey's version a lot.

    :yesway: :yesway: :yesway: Triple thumb up for it!

    new vocals are ok, need a few more listens to get used to it. Highly prefer the instrumental version.

    still in boston....as i recall, he'd signed a lease on a new place up here right before he was asked to join Periphery, so it wasn't really an option to move down to DC yet. i was just over at his place yesterday, it's pretty sweet, can't say i blame him for wanting to stay here :lol:

    I dont like Devil Driver that much, and Jens was always my least favorite part of meshuggah :lol:


    See, i didnt like it at first either. Shit, i only listened to power metal for about a year or 2. Then i edged into thrash and children of bodom (Before HCDR even came out). After THAT, i actually grew to like the style of vocals a lot.

    But as far as sentient 6 goes, its the only song i skip on TGE. Psalm of Lydia owns ALL though.

    Bleah.

    Sentient 6 is my favorite song on TGE. God, that song is so blissfully and wonderfully amazing.

    I hate to say it but I really prefer the old version. I've been listening to it once or twice a day for the past three weeks and I haven't grown to like the vocals at all. The stuff he did for Juggernaut was way better.

    Well I didn't know that. The vocals might flow better then, but as it sits, I think the vocals in this song sounded intentionally weird while the ones in the "new juggies clip" were still perfectly unique and suited the song ten times better.

    Hes got a great voice, as a singer i prefer him over the previous one, style wise i think it matches quite well with the quite acoustic parts where he is singing but he should growl more durring the heavier part just to set it off more.

    I dont really have any comment on the vocals besides Id like to hear some more aggressive parts, but who am I to complain, you guys are still the most talented un-signed band I've ever heard.

    And Warrel Dane and Nevermore kick-arse period. TBH I never liked Warrell Dane in the beggining either, but now I could not hear Nevermore in my head with any other vocals.

    It took me a few listens to get used to the new Icarus, but It's possibly one of my favorite songs of all time now.

    GRAVITY IS JUST A FEEBLE PLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!

    That part absolutely fucking kicks my ass. I always have to rewind.

    His screaming voice is identifiably THE scream I wanna be able to do some day - loads of grit, not too death metally, and he can go from intensely high ranged stuff to ass-rapingly low-pitched growls in the matter of seconds.

    :bowdown:
