So what do you guys think of Stu Block on Iced Earth's new album Dystopia? So far, I actually really like him. I couldn't stand even for a second that Ripper Owens guy, and of course Matt Barlow is the king of singing, but this Stu Block guy actually is singing pretty good. There's parts of songs where Stu is sounding a lot like Matt (Dark City) and even when he goes into the high pitch metal screaming it reminds me of Ripper Owens but actually sounds better and is tolerable. Stu has emotion in his voice and it's most apparent on End of Innocence. As far as the songs are concerned, I'm liking the album! I really like Anthem, Anguish of Youth, Dark City, and End of Innocence. Dark City sounds like Stu helped write it or something because it has this melodic death metal feel to it, which is an interesting sound for Iced Earth and I think works well. At first I thought Tragedy and Triumph was an Iron Maiden cover! You don't hear Iced Earth playing in anything other than Em most of the time so the track sounds pretty cool. I'm loving the solos! They're not only melody type solos that Iced Earth usually has, but there's some shred going on too and it sounds great! Thoughts?
