I was referring to Marco being the frontman of Tarot, but he's been great for Nightwish as well. :D

I think the voice of the new Nightwish vocalist is much more suitable for rock than Tarja was. I'm intrigued to see how she comes off as a frontwoman.

His vocals are pretty weak. I just think if they were a bit cleaner Bodom would be more popular.

They were better back on like Something Wild and such but I still really like them now. He's developed more of a harsh vocal rather than a growl. I mostly appreciate him as a frontman though, that's what I meant when I posted him.

The fact that he never plays Towards Dead End.

the past 2 CD's "Era Vulgaris" and "Lullabies to Paralyze" have had some of the best lyrics I've heard, the kind that when you hear you repeat over and over and over but are intilligent and witty at the same time.
