I'll forget the candor and say I hated his vocals in Slaughter, which were the Aural equivalent of having your balls put through a mangle, so baring in mind Dan's comments re. his voice now, the chances of me picking this up are set firmly high at Zero, in kindness at least to my hearing and my 2 lovely cats I have in my house :whistle:

I never thought his vocals were great, but they never bothered me at all. I really like Slaughter.

:rofl2: What this guy sez, right here. Whether in Slaughter or VVI, Mark's "singing" has always caused me physical pain. He sounds like a little girl with something jammed up her nose who can't stop whining about it.

 

By all accounts his voice is pretty well shot nowadays, which is kind of a scary concept considering that it was irritating as hell to begin with.

 

...but yeah, releasing samples with no vocals seems pretty pointless, especially considering that it's a solo album BY A VOCALIST. So... duh.

Don't really understand all the hate for Mark Slaughter's vocals. I always thought he was just a higher-pitched version of Vince Neil. In fact, I often listen to Slaughter and Motley Crue back-to-back.

Backed. I like his vocals and everything he has released.

If that's a current picture he hasn't changed much.

He's put on some weight, but has managed to look fairly young.

Never had a problem with his vocals either. That said, much like Britny Fox, I preferred the second album as the vocals were dialled back a little. But I would also say the songs were slightly better, so its probably a combination of both.

I have always had more of a liking for the "non traditional" vocal styles used by the likes of Mark, Dizzy, Keifer, Axl, Vince & Pearcy etc.

Isn't that what all of us are aiming for as optimal these days?

Um... I am fairly young, so I can do without the weight.

He must have gotten more beauty sleep than most back in the day.

Man I feel old.

 

I was a senior in high school in 1986 when I first purchased the debut Vinnie Vincent cassette tape with Slaughter on vocals. Doesn't seem like 28 years ago... or maybe it does...

Mark was not on the debut VVI. It was Robert Fleishman.

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.

    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave 
    • Gonna post this as just recently discovered them, and loving what they do. I know most here wont care due to not being their style or not singing in English, but as a Band Maid fan, this shit is right up my street. They are a South Korean band. Posting two songs. One original and one a cover (Maneskin, a band I dont really care about) which is kinda impressive seeing as the song is in Italian, a language they don't speak ha ha
