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.
