    So who's the better of the two "lesser" vocalists?


    I say Nelson, can't stand Turbin's voice

    It's hard to decide since I don't care for either one.

    That's pretty much how I roll. I will hand it to Neil, because he was a bit more original.....Dan was a poor man's Phil Anselmo. Embarrasing for $cott & Charlie to even attempt that. Without Joey or John, hang it up!

    Nelson all the way, Turbin was OK when he did his cookie monster thing (Deathrider), but once he starts "singing" (I'm Eighteen, Death From Above) you might as well desire to put him out of his misery

    Nelson is not a weak vocalist, he's just unoriginal. Neil Turbin however is a horrible, horrible singer.

    I thought it was Bello who shat on Don Nelson's back.

    Voted Nelson because he's not the worst singer ever.. just a little unoriginal.

    Well, I've got at best mild interest in listening to Neil Turbin's Deathriders, but have absolutely zero interest in anything Dan Nelson does at this point, so I guess I'll vote for Turbin. You know, if someone were pointing a gun at my head.

    I voted for Nelson, I like his singing more than Neil's when the latter was in Anthrax. Somehow I don't ... share the notion that Nelson's a Anthrax's version of Anselmo.
    Eh... If only Dan managed to hold it until the next bus stop... If only he could contain himself...

    Dan Nelson. Although I did like some songs on Fist like deathrider and eighteen I got annoyed by Turbins singing real quick. I am glad to see his post Thrax career has been so successful
