Doogie White is Tank's singer and made test to enter Maiden. He's Metal. James Hetfield and Metallica aren't Metal for more than 18 years.

Death Magnetic is a ridiculous try to remake AJFA. To be Metal it has to have attitude, not only distorted guitars and they only have distorted guitars. And you're right, I don't like and isn't the kind of Metal I feel it's made with the heart.

C'mon Jeff, you can't say things like this... You speak with your heart now.
Better to separate personal opinions /feelings with facts that everybody accept.
Death Magnetic can be whatever, but is metal whatever one can say. Same for all Metallica albums...
 

Murder89

Officer Friendly
Jeff Scott Soto
Michael Kiske
Andre Matos
Joe Lynn Turner
Myles Kennedy
Johnny Gioeli
Rob Rock

Michael Vescera

There are a lot of good singers but it's hard to call them favourites.Apart from Bruce, Gillan and Dio JSS is clearly the man.
Soto is definitely my favourite singer.

Metallica's a metal band, but Load and Reload are hard rock, not metal.

I was trying to tell you something else; putting the things in a common basis, in order to to be able to discuss.
Not to please the others, but to avoid having to re-define every given and generally accepted term.
