It makes me think of traditional doom with a bit more speed. Still have no idea what I think of the voice. I love it and hate it at the same time. It makes me think of a Saint Seiya opening or something.

Aye, its definately doomsy-heavy metal, Manilla Road's pretty diverse (at times) in my opinion for a ''heavy metal'' band. Enjoyed the album, ''Flaming Metal System'' was the highlight for me, ESPECIALLY that crazy intro.

The voice to me essentially sounds like a great vocalist pinching his nose the whole time. I love his vocals though, no doubt about that.

Hella nasal voice as well, he probably was sick that day.

A bit like Phoebe from friends when she has a sexy singing voice when she was ill. Not to get all mainstream on everyone there...

Never watched Friends so I'll have to check out her voice. The only Phoebe I know from tv is from Hey Arnold!

Ah Hey Arnold! Good old football head. Haven't watched that in years.

Phoebe's voice wasn't really that sexy to be honest, it was only sexy for the purposes of the program, if that makes sense. Almost like dramatic irony I suppose.

The vocals is what really sets Manilla Road apart from the rest. In that way you can compare them to Cirith Ungol

Huge improvement here from the earlier albums. Truly a classic album in heavy metal and a beginning for more amazing albums to follow.

I don't think I connected so much with other heavy metal songs than I did with this album. Absolute perfect, great songwriting from start to finish, excellent lyrics and a strong cultish feel that persists til today.
