Well, the young singer does have some experience. He was in a band called Winters Bane, and sung on their debut album, "Heart of a Killer". BTW, that was a great record, and he already sounded a bit like Rob Halford at the time.
The problem, imo, is not his voice. He sings perfectly. What I don't like is his attitude on stage. He's not a good frontman, and a band that used to feature a legendary frontman tends to look, how can I say, amputated now with a guy who can "only" sing high notes.
