Malkmus’s had us pondering the timbre of Geddy’s speaking voice for years now. So here’s a fresh debate — Rush: More or less metal than Ray Charles? Press play and brace for the uncomfortable realization that we’re probably all much more like those talk show idiots than we’d like to admit. While you’re watching: What are the qualities of heavy metal? Listening to the voice of a country, courtesy of the Meth Minute.

  1. i don’t think Rush shows up in 21st Century Hip-Hop’s “Devil Horns”, so…case closed.

    Metal…No. Prog Rock..Yes. It’s like asking is Dream Theater Metal? No…

    Less metal than Ray Charles. Then again, Slayer and Mastodon are less metal than Ray Charles too.

  6. I never understood why people considered Rush metal. Dream Theater definitely is though.
