Matt Barlow is the former Iced Earth lead vocalist. He has the best metal voice known to man, and is probably the main reason why the band kicked so much ass. He left after the events on 9/11 to peruse a career as a law enforcement officer. The fans of Iced Earth were extremely saddened by his departure, but support his decision to do whatever he wants with his life. Iced Earth currently has Tim "Ripper" Owens on vocals. Owens is not quite as good as Barlow was, but is still a solid vocalist.
Set "Did you know that the voice of Jesus sounds very similar to that of Matt Barlow's voice. The only difference is that Jesus's voice isn't as cool."
