    Yeah, so here is a live video from them in Greece. Pretty much same as it was here in USA except he had a shirt on. ;)

    Pretty sure the ladies wouldn't object to them at PP. haha.

    3:38 mark for those of you who might be non-believers in Todd Michael Hall's vocal abilities.

    I wasn't sure how to feel going into the show, but Todd does a great job of letting everyone know they are there to pay homage to the legacy of Mark and Riot. He kept saying how much fun he was having singing all these great songs.

    I guess the band gave Todd a lot of crap for taking his shirt off too. I made a comment about it and they were all laughing about it as well.

    Still one of my favorite live sets in a very long time. Such a great band. I am glad they are still carrying the tradition on.

    sound isn't as good on this one but you can see the energy they bring. They are also some of the nicest down to earth guys ever.

    They sound incredible! I loved "Immortal Soul" and I guess we'll see if their new original material can live up to that.

    Sounds like some very well-executed, super-generic metal lyrics and melodies.

    Tony was such a creative force with his lyrics and melodies, I just don't think this bodes well unless someone else in RIOT writes stuff for this singer.

    Yeah this is what I thought about Reverence as well. Not bad but very generic.

    Yes, it is not the most original material on the planet, but so what???

    the point being is that Todd was a good vocalist, even before he was singing RIOT material.

    Not everything has to be original, but honestly those songs bored me. Definitely a good singer but if it isn't memorable, it's a pass for me.

    Best RIOT cover band on the planet actually. 2/5 of members isn't too bad.

    also, they know what kind of band they are in. they don't pretend why they are doing this on stage. they talk about it openly with the people in attendance.
