Metal Guy on American Idol

I've heard whispers from friends about this "Metal Guy" on American Idol. As usual, I figured it was a joke, but holy hell does this guy ever have some pipes (his voice sounds very reminiscent of Mike Metijevic). Here's him doing a Judas Priest cover. Check the screams at 1:05 and at the end.

Yes he has a good voice I got both Highland Glory albums, now they've got a female singer let's see how it works on the new one.

Saint Deamon are a great band and he's a great singer. Hope he goes far.

Though I must say I preferred them when they had Olaf Hayer singing for them.

both of those were awesome to watch...but i think my favorite was the dude from Norway carefully placing his foot ontop of the mic stand to strike the metal vocalist pose before the song starts. hahahaha classic.

I never watch American Idol and the one time I do watch it this guy is on. That's perfect timing. I hope he goes far. I haven't watched it since then. I suspect they'll make him sing a ballad next or something. Don't they have to show all sides of their talents by singing in different styles? I doubt he'll do another metal tune.

I think he will do a metal song next .. that Uglyleera song prolly is classified as a ballad. Unless he gets something really cheezy as his next song. But yeah, he can wail and he shut that blonde bitch up.

A standing ovation for a priest song on American Idol, I never thought I would see that happen!! Nice job Mr. Durban aka The Metal Guy on AI.

It would be cool if there are updates on the progress of Jan Thore Grefstad on "Norway's Got Talent" also.

I know I was, lol. My wife always watches these shows so I get hooked in at some point. Although I did not watch one AI the previous season.

Always hope that there will be some Metal/Rocker that will will pop up. It seems some of the shows in Europe have more of that going on. Wasn't there a guy from Findland? Sweeden? 2 years ago did a good job & ended up in a legit band I believe.

AI is usually watered down, Too many older R&B or safe classic rock or ballads.

Just my 2 cents.............

Durbin is really great! It's nice someone has balls to sing some proper metal in this kind of show and do it right!

Okay, that's pretty awesome. He's definitely talented. Is anyone else reminded of the movie Rock Star?

Seeing as his voice is very similar to Mike Metijevic, yup.

I hate to sound like a snob, but if he's on American Idol he's SUPPOSED to sound like that. I think the best singers of ANY genre are the ones with training, even classical training. Most of the guys on American Idol have awesome voices and would sound great singing a lot of classic metal, but they choose the pop music. Thank God they finally let someone switch it up a little

I mean, think about the best metal singers, they'd ROCK American Idol! Harry Conklin from Jag Panzer was classically trained and if he was on American Idol he'd be the first winner
