I am getting really sick and tired of peoples shit. Are people going to hate? Yes. Are people going to bash for the trololol’s? Yes. But here is the simple fact that you should get through your head. James Labrie is the perfect progressive metal singer. “Eeewwww his voice is so raspy and gross it sounds like the physical incarnation of shit.” ” why is his voice so raspy it sounds horrible I missed old labrie. Images and words plssss.”
Listen here you little fucks, and this goes to especially those last people.
GET YOUR HEADS OUT OF THE 1990’s ASS.
dream theater was more progressive rock back the . 10x less edgy and 10x less heavy. They weren’t progressive METAL.
But guess what they are now.
They are progressive metal. They have adopted a much heavier music style then they had way back then. Which is exactly why labrie sings the way he does, and he is fucking flawless. He is fucking amazing. I want to sound like him as a singer.
Different styles call for different singing. Your so called ” Greatest singer of all time Freddy Mercury ” wouldn’t cut it for 2 fucking songs in dream theater. He doesn’t have the edge, the rasp, the growl, the punch, the power. James fuses operatic style with in your face power and vibrato. James goes toe to toe with the greatest metal singers of all time. Move forward from the past, come to terms with the fact dream theater changes. James isn’t the singer he used to be and for a good reason.
James is the perfect singer for Dream Theater. He has a wide ass range ( which yes Freddy had an unbelievable range don’t get me wrong the man was great but for his own style ) just like Labrie is great in the metal style.
Metropolis part 2 Scenes From A Memory isn’t an album.
It’s an EMOTION.
Paying enigma machine and the enemy inside on your break for all the staff to hear because fuck them it’s ear rape time.
Jordan- “why didn’t we have a counter for the transition into ‘The Pursuit Of Truth?!’ WHAT WERE WE THINKING?!”
James Labrie’s singing in “The Pursuit of Truth” IS ON FUCKING POINT.
I HAVE A LOT OF EMOTIONS ABOUT ILLUMINATION THEORY OKAY?!
Let’s all just take a moment of silence for dream theaters new album.
About 69 minutes of silence.
