So for that, I award big points.

Alot of people think Bruce or Rob bring "opera" to metal, but I feel like Kai is literally a classically trained mezzo-soprano singer given to us by the metal gods to add some "sophistication" to heavy metal. It's pretty hilarious considering that on Walls of Jericho he sounds like a box of smashed assholes. Who knew that 10 plus years of NOT singing would make your vocal abilities grow exponentially?
