    Sad that Ashe is gone :/ His unique voice was one of the things that caught my attention. I tried listening to the One album but Dan's screaming just wasn't doing it for me. But hey, they still make good music regardless of the singer so I will give them a chance--as well as Dan. I hope they continue to do well.

    I have faith that Dan will be able to master the Altered State material given time and practice. Granted, I'm a fan of Tompkins, so I'm hardly an impartial critic. I did like the post he left on that video clip. He seems like a cool enough guy, and I want to give him the benefit of the doubt. I am going to miss Ashe, though. I'm happy with either man as vocalist, but I truly loved Ashe's performance on Altered State. It will be sad to see him go.

    I'm sure he'll do fine with the altered state stuff in time, I'm more worried about his creative ability for the next album

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVVh4PzXhqg - Dan singing Nocturne. He had some technical problems at the beginning. So far I don't dig it, but he still has to master the newer material.

    Weird situation where everyone loves both Dan and Ashe so much that nobody can really tell whether this is good or bad lol [4]

    Damn Ashe's leaving is a kick in the nuts. I love how TesseracT envolved from a poor Djent band into a beautiful Atmospheric Prog Metal band. I'd love to see Dan singing on Altered State. Don't get me wrong, I love Dan as well (his screams on One are top notch) but the new direction TesseracT has is unbelivable. Soooo good.

    I am no hater and I hate them (duh) myself, and I praise bands when they deserve it, but there is nothing wrong with being critical and having high expectations. I am just tired of fans jumping into critical (not hateful) discussions and being constructive with sentences like "they're best lol what are you even talking about". I do love a few bands myself but accepting of everything a band is doing because they're your favourite band and never being critical just doesn't lead anywhere.

    @Borreh, if that was aimed at me then I hasten to say that as this is Tesseract's shoutbox, surely utilising it to praise the band is its sole function, rather than ripping the shit out of bands, which is what people usually use shoutboxes for.

    I'll be a minority and say that extreme vocals do fit in the band's sound.The contrast on One was epic

    and @benson_x is right. I believe that when it comes to a progressive band I think the vocals are a product of the music. What TesseracT do very well is that they use an unusual vocal style (Both Dan and Ashe do this) with a polyrhythmic background to differentiate it from other types of prog metal - It's made to make you listen, watch and embrace the music.

    I think Tesseract get too much criticism; they make fantastic music no matter who is fronting them, mainly because the band has such an incredible backbone due to Amos (bass), Kahney (guitar) and Postores (drums). Because they're all so talented, Tesseract seem to produce good stuff no matter who is singing, screaming or not. Eitherway, as @DrawnToBlackk says, we win.

    I don't see the problem, Ashe is a very good vocalist as so is Dan. Regardless, we win ;)

    I loved this group because of the perfect equation formed by Ashe's (unreal) voice and the perfect, brilliant bass, guitars and drums! Now that that equation doesn't exist ... what's next? :/

    "Ashe, on the other hand, not only has a great voice but he also sings in an interesting way" "Also, after Altered States I think harsh vocals don't fit Tesseract at all" This. A million times this

    I do know - For me it's bad. I know Dan is a good vocalist but he has a lot of work to do to catch up do Ashe's level. Sure, he has a great voice, but his vocal lines were the weakest part of "One" for me. Ashe, on the other hand, not only has a great voice but he also sings in an interesting way. I was enchanted by Dan's voice at first, but as time went along I became annoyed by his whining - The guy just meows like a cat 80% of the time. Also, after Altered States I think harsh vocals don't fit Tesseract at all, and I am afraid they will return.

    Tesseract is like... it's like... imagine that you've just been dumped, right? And it's so hard to get over the changes in your life, but over time you finally come to accept it and realise that actually maybe in reality things are better now. You've dated a few girls and, yeah, they've been okayish, positive steps. BUT! Then she comes back a few months later, seduces you with her feminine charm and cheap vodka and you end up having the weirdest ever crysex. And it was amazing, and reminded you of the "good old days"- but you feel almost used. That's what it's like Tesseract! STOP TOYING WITH MY EMOTIONS!! : ' ' ' (

    you know, this news is waaaay bigger than it seems. i refuse to believe there were creativity differences between ashe and the rest of the band. doesnt make sense. i mean, remember when dan left tesseract the first time? shit is pretty sus guys. i for one am disappointed with the whole movement even though i would rub my dick on the ground dan walks on, because it's not as if theyre going to redo altered state in the studio with dan on it. tesseract owes a lot of its success to altered state. besides, regardless of how much better the new vocalist is, does anyone actually like it when bands repeatedly change their vocals? jeez

    I really doubt that they will make a better album than Altered State without Ashe on vocals. But Dan is one of the best oute there, so who knows.
