23:14 - Apothecary Pretty much lol, and I mean think of where sludge originated too: New Orleans. That's really all that needs to be said
23:10 - no one i think the raw ugly drunk rasping vocals suits the genre just fine, it's meant for rowdy drunk metal heads anyway isn't it?
23:07 - Apothecary So, uh, new Plebeian Grandstand is awesome? Especially this track [link] , sounds like some fucking evil "blackened drone" or something
23:00 - Karlabos Indeed. i don't get why is it commom sense that sludge singers must all sound like a drunk bad thrash wannabe vocalist. the only bands i like on the genre are the ones with vocals as far away as that as possible
22:48 - TrueMetalJope IMO it's rather: typical sludge vocals < all other vocals : -)

The following message has been posted by vocalist Cristina Scabbia on her personal Myspace page, mainly for other bands members:
"We were recently informed that members of several bands across the country, mostly non-Jager bands, have been contacted by an unknown third party, claiming to be named "Tim Rex" the official Jagermeister Tour Manager, seeking to engage such bands as openers or support on upcoming Jager Tours, or for other similar promotions, concerts and events. We wanted to inform all of you just in case you have received or do receive a similar phone call.
This unknown third party has contacted bands and other parties via a blocked cell phone number, informing the band that the person represents the Jager Tour and is considering the band for certain events. This party often tells the bands that he will be sending certain forms and documents for the band to complete, and that the party will be arranging a meeting with the band. He has also asked for the band to supply private personal information during this phone call.
