Jon said that but if you listen to most of that album I don't buy it. I can see some of the songs but I just don't believe there is any possible way the Gettysburg trilogy was written for Matt's voice. He REALLY struggles on that. About 75% of those 3 songs as with Declaration Day lay right in that same break in his voice. Problem is Matt is pretty much a baritone and Ripper is a tenor. Its gonna be problematic for alot of the stuff that was very comfortable for Ripper to sing.
Yea Attila its funny cause when I heard that song I thought it was written clearly for Matt because Ripper sounded kinda toothless doing it. I'd love to hear Matt do that because I really love that song and he would do a better job than Ripper on it.
