I can't either, that's not the point I was trying to get across haha. I was trying to say that he judges a good screamer/vocalist or whatever by how well you can understand the lyrics and whatnot. It's how well he sounds. While the lyrics are most definately an added bonus to the song package, the delivery is 10x more important for me. And that's why I listen to death metal, black metal, etc. I can't directly understand the content of what he's saying, but it sounds fucking awesome. If I wish, I can look up the lyrics and then that doubles the meaning and all, but for me it's the music first and foremost.

edit: I would love to hear anyone say they can listen to Killswitch Engage's screams and tell me exactly what the lyrics are without looking or knowing before. Any different from another screamer my ass, except maybe worse minimum.
