I've just been listening to the free mp3 clip "Ice Age" on The Great Divide by Ice Age. It has some great parts, especially the clean segments, nice recommendation there Progtologist! Gosh, Josh sounds alot like James Labrie... but what on earth is he doing towards the end of the song (e.g. 9:43) ? He sounds ridiculous as he grunts the words from the bottom of his throat with a burr. Please, tell me it's something he only does on this particular track! I cant stand this voice anymore... but the music is good!

Hi Progzilla,

Personally, I think their second outing, Liberation is the stronger of the two, but there is no doubt they are a talented outfit.  Josh Pincus' vocals are generally quite clean, and he has a good voice..they are worth checking out further...

cheers

I think that The Great Divide has the stronger melodies ... but Liberation has better production and is a little more mature.

They're both awesome!

Good evening Fandango!

It's not something he only does once, the second half of the song he does it all the time. If you don't know what I'm talking about, then he probably doesn't do it on other tracks!

His voice is more similar to Michael Sadler's from Saga than James Labrie's.

Really, Saga? Well, if Josh would sing cleaner and softer, I guess it's not that far off. Remember I've only heard this one song though!

Listen to Ice Age, 2:46-2:56. Now that is the most Labrie sounding vocalist I've ever heard!

I'm not the biggest fan of prog metal, but musically this is not bad but the vocals are horrendous. I've just deleted it.
