Its sort of a sad commentary on the Death Metal genre. To my ears, there is nothing more disappointing than getting into a tight, melodic, metal groove intro only to be assaulted by what can barely be passed as vocals. I've never understood the whole growling, death metal style. For me, it practically ruins every song. It's too bad - with "normal" singing I might find a band like Omnium Gatherum interesting. Unfortunately, they are just unlistenable. I would take Ged's vocal stylings any day of the week and twice on Sunday!

Hang on - this just in hot off the newswire.

It wasn't Cookie Monster as lead singer ...... It was By-Tor ! Let the fray begin !!!!

Priceless. Didn't anybody bother to tell these guys that "roar" and "growl" are nouns or verbs and not the actual sound of a roar or growl?

"Move along folks, nothing to see here. Jesus, O'Malley, you're standing on the decapitated head of this song. Can't you look where you're stepping and direct traffic at the same time?!"

LOL. If you heard this, you know where I'm coming from. No editorial needed.

Ah, come on now, let's not insult Cookie Monster.

Imagine this guy doing Bytor, along with someone to do Snowdog? Any nominees? The guy from the BeeGees?

Good evening's laughs (the vid and the comments).

Was way late in reading this, but it has been, by far, the most humorous and entertaining read in a long while! Every funny thought I was going to post was already written down! In my best growling voice:

Dying over those vocals. "Subdevesioooons! Grrrooooowl!" But the music is damn good. I'd buy this w/o the vox for sure.

I think i first heard this guy on Tony Bennett's duets album.

His rendition of "I left my heart in San Francisco" just kills.

Has me in fits! Is that one of the characters from Lord of The Rings ? I think it is the lead Goblin or is it one of the Trolls ! Anyways fair play for covering and to be fair the guitar and musical side of it is very good, but PLEASE leave the vocals to Geddy! This guy will NOT be standing in to cover this on any part of their European Tour ! THANK GOD, or should I say THANK GED! Good luck, and certainly put a smile on my face :)

Shame, I think the music is great - particularly what they've done with the guitars adding something new and good to the song. However, the vocals don't do it with me - the growling just does not work. It might work on other material but not this song - far too melodic for the vocals. Shame, I really like the guitars!

There are a multitude of bands whose singers sound just like this. Not my cup of tea, and seems I'm not alone in that. However there are throngs of young whippersnappers who love this s^!t, probably just to piss of their parents. Thankfully I don't count my kids among them!!!

btw, Subdivincent casts all judgement on subdivisions covers.

this one really sucks.

be cool or be snuffed out..
#38 - Posted 2/26/13 @1:24PM by gag2man [contact]

The drums sound like they do on Different Stages. I bet this guy can't sing a three hour show.

Ged really needs to rest his voice before the next leg - he's sounding a little hoarse.

I think the instrumentation is pretty tight. The vocals aren't exactly my cup of tea but hey, at least these guys respect Rush enough to cover one of their most beloved tunes. I can't wait for my brother to hear this. He's into bands like Cannibal Corpse and Gwar. He'll think it's awesome.

I'd love to hear what boys think of it....

#29 You nailed it.

Come on it is only the reemergence of the great Dikembe Mutombo into the Limelight. First he did tne super bowl commercial for Geico and now he started a band.

#18 "Think before you speak"...thanks for the life lesson...NOT! Puh-lease, this is an open forum to say whatever. No one is out of line here. If we want to speculate, then so be it. We only wish these guys the best so they continue to make great music. Do we really care what they look like? Just let them stay healthy for at least 30 more years!

#30 With a username like "Rushguy", you really liked this cover? Really?
