DaveG proclaimed:

Stand-in guy can sing high an' all, but, what say you, does he suck or not?

After a careful examination, and with some reservation, I have to say, overall - gay. Fuck. I don't like this guy; sings high, but I ain't feeling the rage:) So far this tribute band is worse than Riot V to me. Bummer. I'm gonna see this with Iced Earth in a month...
He's a good singer and actually sings these songs better than Warrel was able to since the reunion.

Does his voice have even half the personality of WD's? Of course not, but he's an overall good stand-in who can sing the songs accurately and well enough to make for a good final tribute to Warrel.
You're certainly right about Warrel's voice deteriorating horribly over decades. I just get no genuine emotion or angst from the replacement, and I think he overplays all the wrong angles. Also, he's a bit off key:) Again, was Warrel worse? Oh, yeah, hahaha - I actually ended up singing "the hard parts" of Battle Angels at the Nevermore/Arch Enemy show back nearly 20 years ago(which I can in no way, shape, or form do now, either:), so it he was shot to shit even than. Still, it would be nicer to get someone with some grit to send Warrel off, if it must be.
