Favorite Geoff Tate clone?


Recommended Posts

In light of this thread:

I'm curious what people's favorite Tate/Queensryche clones are.

 

The one that immediately comes to mind for me, that never really made it as big as they should have, is Heir Apparent:

And this cover they did is one of my favorite metal covers of nonmetal songs (this along with the Nevermore version which takes a completely different spin on the original):

Vett Roberts from Recon

David Taylor of Jacobs Dream (esp. on their first album - his voice was shot to hell by their second one though)

The dude from Lethal (his name slips my mind at the moment)

The newest singer for Shadow Gallery.....and so much so it gives me the creeps.

The saddest part is that this song would probably be the best Queensryche track in nearly 20 years, if it had indeed been them.

I still don't understand why that album is being mentioned all the time for that cover- i don't care if good or bad- when it has cacophony of anger and young forever.

 

sacred warrior, recon, lethal, defyance, manifest, omega point, scarlet rayne etc etc etc...

 

so, benito a tate clone...time to put that demo 90 on...

Love that Heir Apparent album. It's been re-mastered I think. They would probably have been my pick as a Geoff Tate clone, but I guess there are probably dozens of bands out there who sound similar.

I don't think he sounds anything like Tate

I always hated this style of vocal personally, but there's a few cool albums out there that rise above. Including 'Empire.'

What do you guys think about Bill Carter of Screamer, might even have a tad more range then Tate, but not even close to as cool of a voice, imo??

    • I think I posted these guys before. It's not ground breaking, but they have an album out and it's pretty cool. Some really cool musical passages on it.   Sever     -    This Should Have Been a Better Place 1    .    '91 2    .    Red Room 3    .    Animal 4    .    Cold World 5    .    Empty Promises (feat. Christoph Wieczorek of Annisokay) 6    .    Closer 7    .    The Disease 8    .    My Dream, My Agony 9    .    Noise in the Trees 10    .    Do You Remember Me?
    • These guys are one of those mystery bands to me. I think they're fine, just can't figure out why people fall over themselves for them as I think they're average to below average in the overall scheme of things. BUT, that is why I am a strong advocate for to eaching their owning. I'm glad people dig, I just don't really understand why. Anyway, new album is basically what these guys do. Solid, eclectic and half decent... but not great. I did think 'Beat of Your Heart' was a nice ballad. Drum sound interesting too. Took me genuinely 6-7 songs to figure out what I thought of it - if I liked it or not. I think I settled on the fact it's cool. I think. Anyway, I assume fans will adore this for whatever reasons they loved the other ones. Me, I think it's adequate, again. 
    • I'm not in the camp enough to say this is utter shit because honestly, it's not. It is capable melodic hard rock and if I put myself in the honest box, if nothing else was considered and this came along in a year like 1996 or something, it'd be a well appreciated album. BUT, all things considered, I agree that it's a pass. It's all capable, but it's very bland and it's just impossible to listen to this project without wondering why it's still called Sunstorm without JLT. It doesn't make sense.  Anyway, I thought 'Hold The Night' was a passable keeper but the rest is predictable, uninspired and bored. 
    • lol, I wonder who he thinks that is going to appeal to? 
    • I'd be amazed if there's any Tesla fans anywhere that don't like 'Bust a nut.' Is this really considered one of their weaker albums? 
    • Ok. I can understand your thinking regarding one`s favorite bands. In my case it was  Bon Jovi. First album I ever bought was Slippery, liked NEw Jersey even better. Saw them live few times, but after 1995 only some good songs on each album but still bought albums,  since Richie left I cant stand their latest albums or even live. So from that scenario I see that I am not just following my favorite bands regardles what they put out.     But in Tesla case I do stlll enjoy their releases, even those post 2010. A admit that Shock had some filler but also some of their best songs post 2000 like The Mission.   I do miss the heavier  element that Tommy brought. songs like  Dont de-rock me, Action talks.
    • Blondie on the right of the second shot is PERFECTION!
