I love Sound Barrier. I love them man. And I love Bill McClintock's soul metal mashups on his Youtube channel. I actually love Sound Barrier on the level I love Iron Maiden I think. I love Thin Lizzy too. I just sorta wondered if anyone knew of any other traditional metal bands with a black lead singer, because I really love the combo of the traditional metal sound with a black vocalist. I'm not into thrash metal, death metal, all that stuff, I'm basically just a traditional metal and power metal fan. Anyone know of anything? In Living Color is cool, but I don't know, they just don't have what Sound Barrier had for me. Sound Barrier is more epic to me, more aggressive and inspiring. In Living Color is a great band, just not what I'm looking for.

Check out Black Death - likely the first all African American metal band.

If you're into 80s' French metal then Strattson are a must:
