Here's my problem: I love heavy metal music but I'm kind of out of touch and everytime I check out some new band that's really getting talked up I get hit in the ear with cookie monster vocals (latest culprit: Mastodon). It's frustrating because the music might be okay but I just can't abide all the unintelligible rasping. It's like a really good truffle that has a rabbit pellet in the middle - the outside is good chocolate but nevertheless it's still got a turd in it and I'm not going to eat the damn thing, and that's discouraging for a guy like me that grew up believing guys like Halford and Dickinson were the models for great metal singers. Where are the guys like that for this generation? Which bands kick ass with frontmen that actually have range? I don't even need bands with *great* singers because at this point I'd be happy with people that at least *try* to sing. Any suggestions?
