Phil Anselmo or Rob Halford
 
I've noticed that, especially on Cowboys from Hell, Phil does high singing like Rob Halford (and a bit like Bruce Dickinson). Out of the two I prefer Phil because he has a wide range and I like Pantera more than Judas Priest, but it's probably not the case with alot of you. I also think that, when singing clean, Phil produces a nicer sound; he can also shout well. So who do you think is the best?

phil defenetly.

Just listen to TGSTK (album), fucking great screams with nice whiskey clean vocals.
Damn, he's my god.

I'm not into pantera much but I'd say phil too.

Def 2004-10-15 12:52

useless thread, phil by far

Rob..

Rob obvously influences Phil, and Phil cant sing for shit now.

His lyrics are sub par.. and he coughs up a storm after he screams...

hes just a worthless heroin addicted frontman for a band that servers no purpuse but to waits 30min of my time at ozzfest.

MetalThrashingMad 2004-10-15 17:10

^yea, Phil WAS real good,but Rob is the fucking metal vocals king, alongside Bruce. And Joe Bellardini, in my opinion.

Right on. I'm pretty much anti-Pantera, so this says it all for me.

MetalThrashingMad 2004-10-15 17:21

Yea, Nihilist prefers the less obscure bands. :eek:

Phil's really gone to hell. I'd thought that before, then Down released their second album and he seemed to be back in form, but it sounds like he's got very little to offer anymore. Rob, on the other hand, always sounds great. He sounded great with Judas Priest, he sounded great with Fight, he sounded great with Two, he sounded great with Halford, and now he presumably sounds great with Judas Priest again. It's hard to beat the classics.

As I think about it, I'm really not sure why this is a thread. Aside from the one Pantera song with Halford on it, there's very little that invites comparison, as they have very different styles. Falsetto is not and should not be synonymous with Rob Halford. Having to choose between these is like being asked to choose between Matt Barlow and Barney Greenway.

Im talking about SJR... god they suck.

But Rob's voice was AMAZING at ozzfest. He hasent lost his touch.

Nihilist 2004-10-15 18:09

Yes, I know, but if I'm anti-Pantera, naturally I'd be anti-Phil.

andrewc 2004-10-15 20:33

ive never been a priest/halford fan (due to a certain arrogant person that tried to get me into all their stuff too fast and it got quite annoying).

and phil was fantastic until reinventing (i think his new vocal attack really suited the GSTK) so he gets my vote in spite of the crap that hes putting out now with superdope ritual.

Def 2004-10-16 05:24

apperently I'm the only one that doesn't give a rat's ass about halford?

The Doctor 2004-10-16 06:12

The Doctor 2004-10-16 17:56

its really cool man, and dont give me the you-should-listen-to-the-older-stuff crap because i do listen to it (even rock-a-rolla is in my collection).

I just like the more death metallish songs

MetalThrashingMad 2004-10-16 18:04

I'm not saying its bad, I think that guitars/drums have been better in other places, in other albums ex. Painkiller.
And if you mean vocals, I still think SFV rules.

Phil doesn't do all the screams on TGSTK.
 
I don't know who has the TGSTK album, but if you read through all the credits, Phil has a substitute vocalist do some of the screams. I don't have the album right next to me right now but I remember his name's Seth. However, Phil is my favorite metal vocalist, but he has gone to hell now that they've broken up.

I think some of the longer screams are seth.
