Ok let me get this straight. He had problems with his vocal chords before stopping him from screaming. Does this mean that the new problem will stop him from singing?
One can only hope...Well actually if he stopped taking lessons from Axl Rose's vocal coach he wouldn't be so bad...
M. Shadows (a.k.a. Matt) has had similar problems with his vocal chords in the recent past, dropping screamed vocals almost completely from his repertoire following the 2005 album Waking The Fallen.
Waking The Fallen wasn't released in 2005, did you mean City of Evil?
Matt Shadows = Stooge.
someone needs to hunt Matt Shadows down, i would like this band more if it weren't for that prick.
they're all pricks
Does this mean that the new problem will stop him from singing? my god I hope so
I don't think they even play it.
lol, no loss to the festival
What does he do live now, for his older material? Does he try to scream, or what?he sings
his normal way, or does he attempts (and fails) to sing it like he did before?
either way it's probably really painful.
if he played reading, maybe they would realize they need a new singer.
The less gigs they do, the better.
why the hell is this news in the metal section!!it should be in the pop section...
why didnt they break up?
they should have
Kinda harsh, I think his vocal style is pretty unique, although he totally failed with the piano ballad Warmness on The Soul.
Lol at everyone's hate for this band. I remember when everyone was calling them the future of Metal when City Of Evil was released.
Hahahahaha^^^^^ and they still aren't and will never be the future of metal. It's called hype!
Dropkick Murphys' singer commented on this by saying "I've been singing with a fucking vocal strain for 20 years" during their set. And got a massive roar from the crowd.

They should do the show. Anything that could potentially endanger a7x's future as a band is good in my book.
Well I mean thats going too far I mean come on now I wouldn't say their career needs to be ended or anything
In their defense, they've been touring quite heavily since last october, so i can only imagine how worn out his voice is by now.
Apparently go to reading if you like metal...
What does he do live now, for his older material? Does he try to scream, or what?
He screams now.
