    I'm hoping there is a song or two on this one where he doesn't sing "yeah, yeah" several times. I love his overall body of work, especially Talisman, but this last solo outing he tried to be something he's not, it was too heavy. He can't pull off heavy or angry. That said, this is a blind buy in any case.

    He can pull of heavy. The proof, that first SOTO disc, which was excellent all over. Hope Divak will be in the same style.
    But you're right, he loves screaming "Yeah!" a lot. He also does it on the Joel Hoekstra's 13 disc quite a bit :)

    As far as Soto is concerned, he can do whatever the hell he wants....it'll be great. Much like Russell Allen and Jorn Lande....their voices transcend the material.

    Okay, that was pretty much awesome. I mean really awesome. Far surpassed whatever I thought he'd do. I'd buy the album if this was the only good song on it. Of course he just HAD to get a couple of "yeah, yeah's" in there but I'll add a hell yeah, this is great!

    Nahhh this album won't be for me. This new song doesn't do much for me. Musically it's ok but the vocal melodies are boring. Don't like that painted nail look on a dude either. Epic fail.

    I usually respect your opinion on melodic music, but you are crazy as hell on this one. This song rocks and Jeff sounds great. Jeff has been painting his nails black for years....such a trivial thing to make a comment over..

    OK forget the nails, that was a silly observational comment based on him waving his hands a lot in the video. As for the song it still an average run through of modern metal. Just my 'crazy' opinion!

    Man, you're a tough crowd... This song is quite good IMO. I think this new album will be excellent, like the previous one was.

    When I saw them live in Winter Park, Fl. a month back, all the tunes they played from the new disc sounded terrific. They put on a heck of a show, and that was with Jeff dealing with pneumonia....the dude was a trooper. The band was tight as hell....along with the SOTO stuff, they played a huge Talisman medley, a little JSS, some W.E.T. tunes, and even an Axel Rudi Pell tune....very cool. Definitely a band to check out if you get the chance.
