    Was there anyother singers considered or was Tim "The Ripper" Owens his first choice. I think Tim Aymar from Pyscho Scream and Control denied would have been and awesome replacement. Aymar has more Depth to his voice and would have been killer to hear him sing old Iced earth songs.

    I could have replaced that donkey Barlow. He wasn't that great. I can do almost all he can(screeching like my balls are being grated off doesn't count), rap, croon, and death growl.

    Ripper might not be a good choice, but I did like his voice on the verses to The Reckoning. He was better off in Priest.

    Well, it looks like a middle finger, but really, it is a penis.

    So he was the one doing all the high pitches wails?

    I always thought it was Schaffer.

    It was definitely Matt. Jon doesn't have anywhere near that kind of range.

    I'm always incredibly amused by "I don't like the way this guy/band sings/plays, so let's kill them!" Reality called, dudes. They're wondering where you went.

    When a guy helps to ruin one of your favorite bands you want revenge.

    I was expecting Tim Aymar or maybe Jon Schaffer himself as new singer before Tim Owens became offical new singer.

    Yeah, that also. Not my penis though, so no worries. ;) *places $10 in asphyXy's trousers*

    I really love Tim Owens...he's one of my favorite singers, and I couldn't be happier with his inclusion in Iced Earth.

    However, I agree with you! Had Owens not been chosen, Aymar would have also been an excellent choice. Check out his work with Pharaoh...it's awesome.

    I hadn't heard them. I liked Blaze's stuff with Maiden (Virtual XI, anyhow) and I really like him as a singer, but he would have been a really poor choice for Iced Earth.
