G- Best Vocalist of a band in your opinion

Wow, at first it was a little hard to choose. Or, as I started typing, it still is hard to choose, but on the same time… As soon as I got this question, my mind went directly to one certain singer, and I don’t think any one of you reading are going to be surprised by my choice.

Mark Slaughter.


This is a picture I took of him at Sweden Rock 2012, I can’t be bothered to open up my MAC to photoshop a logo onto it, so don’t take it please thank you very much. Anyway, Markysan… First of all, no one, NO ONE can deny that this man has quite the voice. But most importantly, for me, is that his voice soothes me. It makes me calm. I would love to sit here and analyze in what makes him good, but I’m afraid I don’t know enough about singers and singing in general to give a good opinion rather than that I love his voice.

Oh. Right. He’s the singer of Slaughter by the way, the band that emerged when Vinnie Vincent Invasion broke up, you know, Dana and Mark continued on with Tim Kelly and Blas Elias. Bobby went on to Nelson and a numerous of other projects. Nelson’s “After The Rain” is a killer though, check it out. But now I’m getting sidetracked.

When Lordi announced in 2010 they were going to use Markysan for additional vocals on “Babez For Breakfast” I fucking flipped. I had to re-read it a hundred times, and I still didn’t believe it until I got the album in my hands and heard his voice on the album. And his appearance on Chrissy Steele’s “Magnet To Steele” still sends me shivers down my spine.
