I just watched semi final number 2 and I came across Eythor Ingi from Iceland. He sang a ballad called I Am Alive. The song is average, however his voice, his look and his name stuck in my head.
So what do I do? I go on to YouTube and search for his name. He is in a Deep Purple cover band and he covers Child In Time. If you want to separate the vocalists from the wannabe’s, Child In Time is the song.
He nails Ian Gillan. Why did he do a ballad? This guy has got some serious vocal chops. He never used them. The pressure to fit into a style, into a format. When are people going to wake up. Uniqueness wins all the time.
At least Eythor lives up to his Thor viking name. He doesn’t need steroids like Tim Lambesis from As I Lay Dying. The latest on the hit man for hire saga is that the he was suffering from “roid rage” and that he “lost God”. Fair enough, however I fail to see how that is a defense to organising a hitman. I think it’s time that Lambesis takes responsibility for his actions.
Anyone heard the new Five Finger Death Punch song, Lift Me Up. How similar is the vocal line in the verse to The Ultimate Sin from Ozzy. It’s catchy. It gets be head moving and it gets my foot tapping.
Rob Halford guests. It seems to be that everyone is doing the same thing now, getting guest musicians and releasing two albums within 6 months of each other. Coheed and Cambria did it, Stone Sour did it and now Five Finger Death Punch are doing it.
Finally, Bon Jovi pre-sales via Showbiz have not sold out as yet. I went on line again and i can still purchase 4 platinum tickets.
