Cool

Dammit, I demand you all to listen to Eric Adams sing. After doing that, find me a Metal vocalist with:

a) More Power
b) Higher Clarity
c) Clearer Timbre
d) Wider Range
e) Greater Longevity

While Sir Adams is no longer the best (except for maybe power) at any one of those individual facets of singing, he is the jack of all trades - he's still brilliant at all of them. Plus, he's like 45.

Bruce Dickinson hasn't got the range of Eric Adams. Geoff Tate lacks in timbre department. Akerfeldt hasn't got the range, power, or longevity. David Coverdale hasn't got the power. Dio lacks the range.

Eric wins.

The a, b, c, d, and e were meant to correspond to the points you made, as you seem to agree with.

I think he meant a singer that can best Adams in ALL those points.

Ah. Well, I'm biased because I hate ManOwaR, but I could name a ton of singers I prefer.

He may have a good voice, but that doesn't mean the music is good. there are few guitarists who can match Yngwie Malmsteen and 90% of his music is still boring

Very true. There's a difference between being good at your instrument (or voice) and applying it well.

I'm willing to bet large sums of money that your first statement is completely false.
And secondly, I've heard several entire Manowar albums and live songs, I don't need to watch a video on youtube to have a revelation about someone I've heard and already don't like.
