    As many already should know JP it's going to release a new live album with songs that never have appeared before on an official live album from the band.

    Here's some info from their MySpace site:

    Except for the "Nostradamus" cuts I like the setlist enough to get this puppy.

    Half those songs were just released with Halford singing 2 years ago.

    Halford sounds weak because he's almost (or is) 60.

    "Beyond The Realms Of Death" was on a 1978 live EP that was released just after "Unleashed In The East".

    The age is not just the reason. Dio will be 67 in a month and he's not "weak" live. Halford lost a lot in the last few years as it seems. His mid-range is still excellent, but he struggles with the higher notes, which I admit is kinda normal for a man in his late 50s. JP should definitely stop to play Painkiller live for example and play more songs that fit Rob's range as of now...

    To be honest I've extracted the audio from DVDs and hence have live versions of Painkiller and Beyond the realms of death. It's just it might be a good 'mixed up' live album if they fanny about with it. Like Unleashed in the East. I'll still get it because I collect their albums.

    If age is not a factor, then he most certainly is weak live! Go break out Holy Diver and than play the new H&H and tell me they're on the same page. They're not.

    However: Dio for being almost 70, he sounds very impressive. He can still hit most of the notes, albeit his tone is absolutely shot.

    Same goes for Halford, given his age, and the fact that he's been screaming his ass off for 150 nights a year for the past 30+ years.

    I like how a thread about the announcement of a live album turned to a pissing match over who sounds better live in their 60's....

    Haha we should be lucky there's still an opportunity to even see them live. I wouldn't care if Rob was in a walker singing his Two material... it's Halford!

    My thoughts exactly. I've never understood bitching about singers live unless they're young and suck consistently night after night.

    Singing ain't guitar playing. Sickness, lack of sleep and a million other reasons can affect how a singer sounds on a daily basis.

    He sounded good to me when I saw him live earlier this year. The only thing he doesn't do it stand up straight and bounce about more but that's what age does lol.

    Come on, it's sure you can't compare Dio's range at age 41 with now. The guy is human. I just say that he still sounds impressive now at almost 67. His tone is surely not "shot". And he's still "alive" on the stage, compared to Halford, which is 9 years younger. I mean, I saw Priest live in 2005 and 2008 and thought that Halford was fine vocally except for his higher range, but he looks really like a grandpa on stage, standing still most of the time, barely moving, bent over to read his teleprompter. My friend, who is a HUGE Halford fan, even more than me, thought he looked a bit pathetic. After the 2005 show, we thought it was only a bad night, that he might have been sick. After the 2008 show (where he had the same "problems"), we had to accept that it's the Rob Halford we'll see on the stage from now on.

    Compare Dio's moves on the stage 25 years ago and now with H&H and it didn't really change. He still moves. Compare what Halford did in the 80s, even in the early 90s with Fight, with him standing still most of the time now, it's like night and day. And it's sad...
