You know this guy isn't a bad vocalist, but damn if his vocals for DGD sound like this. Way too high.

He'd fit perfect in a post-Cove, post-Anthony Saosin.

In a post-Jonny, post-Kurt DGD though?

I'm always excited for new DGD, but I still don't see him fitting well.
I disagree. I think the new DGD could be more similar to the S/T if they do it right. Tilian has a unique sound too that wasn't in the last record, and I actually enjoy a lot of songs on DBM2. Despite being one of their weaker efforts.

I just don't see it. I know his sound, and I don't hate it. I just don't think it fits with DGD. Would you listen to Death Star or Happiness if it had Tilian on vocals? I wouldn't have. I'd listen to this guy if he was still in Tides or if he joined Saosin. But the nasal, super high clean vocal thing doesn't work in DGD.

Worked in Tides, worked in Saosin, worked in SWS, works in PTV, etc.

Too many post-hardcore vocalists sound like that. That was actually one of the few things that made DGD stand out, that their singers didn't sound like their balls were in a vice grip, you know?

If Geise would have joined DGD, it would have been a much better fit. I barely even like Jonny, but I'd listen to another record with him before a Tilian cut.
Yeah, but we still haven't heard anything yet. We should wait for a song to be released before we make these claims. I agree though that it is a strange choice/fit for DGD. Like I said though it could bring a new unique element having his super high falsettos. Well see.

I'm not sure because I'm only familiar with Geise on Rock Solid, and he did a great job. Though I felt his vocals didn't match very well if he was going to be the main clean vocalist. I also haven't listened to Tides, but I was one of those people who enjoyed the live videos of Tilian. I should probably start listening to Lower D.
