Saw Malmsteen and Ripper concert last night.......

Great show, however Malmsteen looked like he was stuck in an 80's time warp, Ripper was as great as ever on vocals. I got to tell you guys after hearing Ripper Owens perform live last night and hearing Barlow vocals at the Orlando show, I really think Jon made a mistake not keeping Ripper, don't get me wrong I like Barlow also, but Ripper just seems to be flawless, that's just my  take. Oh yeah  During one of the warm up bands I was wearing my Iced Earth T-Shirt and looked to my left and Ripper was next to me , he noticed my shirt and gave me the thumbs up so I went over to him and talk with him for aliittle bit, he's real down to earth cool dude, I thanked him for his great work in Iced Earth and wished him the best for the future.

awsome dude, lucky guy.

i have to see barlow first, to say something about their live performance, all i know is, ripper is a damn good singer and entertainer, and he's got my respect and blessings...

I am also sadden of Tim's departure, but Jon is right, Matt makes Iced Earth complete.
Stormrider

Iced Earth had me at Barlow.

Sorry was that too lame a joke? Oh well I am king of the lame ass jokes.

Truth be told I like all IE singers (though it has taken several years and listens for me to finally appreciate Gene Adam, still my least favorite vocalist but if you read some of my past reviews, you know I really didn't like his vocals all that much. He's grown on me now).

Ripper is a great singer.

I have to point out though that with Yngwie does so many interludes that ripper can recover from his strenuous singing style.

Both Barlow and Ripper have a style that demands 110% of their work.
Given Iced Earth has so many vocal oriented tunes that it takes its toll on the singers.

This to me is partially why I think Jon wanted Stormrider to be strictly sung by him seeing as how the original version is more like 15% Jon, 85% Gene. It not only gave an epic consistency but gave the singer a break.

He's great in Malmsteen, but do you guys actually think he'll last there.

No. He'll be removed like he was from JP and IE.

As said a million times before, I think he just needs to stick with Beyond Fear

Do us all a favour... and never stop drinking Very Happy

Hansi, Tim and Matt on the same cd, or even the same song... That would kill almost every other metal band Twisted Evil .

btw could a single song even stand the united awesomeness of all these gods?

...and guess what, they should ask LARS ULRICH to become their drummer, wouldn't that be cool?



















hahaha, I'd love to see all your faces right now!
