Is it just me or does Jon's voice sound a lot different nowadays?

Jonathan Davis is an amazing singer after all these years but I can't help but feel that in past years, particularly on Korn III and in live performances of Korn's old songs, his voice sounds a lot different than it used to. His voice doesn't sound quite as powerful or raspy. On See You on the Other Side and the Untitled album his voice sounded wonderful in many songs, but on Korn III, his screams and shouts sound a little weak in some parts. One thing I loved about the first album was the variety of singing he could do. Scat singing on "Ball Tongue", death metal vocals near the end of "Fake" etc but whenever he sings those songs live nowadays they come across as a little less powerful. Why do you think this is? I still love Korn, but I would love to see Jon bring back his old singing style.

    i love change and his voice has changed, i suppose along with all factors in place, the massive amount of singing, screaming and growling on stage and off, recording day in and day out and his asthma,(i know how asthma can be cuz i have it) can put stress and damage to the vocal chords. honestly, i love how he sounded back in the day and i love how he sounds now. if he continues to keep on like he did back in the day, he may lose his voice or have permanent damage. it's hard to tell really cuz i'm no doctor but let's hope that won't happen.

    I definitely agree with you, his voice is fucking amazing, I loved it when KoRn did Unplugged!

    As long as he keeps singing I am happy.
    Does it make me bad??

    No shit, it happens with everyone. Brian Johnson from AC/DC sounds different on every album and so does James Hetfield from Metallica (after Cliff). It's age and wear-and-tear of which Jon did a lot of. Regardless, like the other guys, it somehow makes his voice better for singing rather than screaming, as demonstrated on Korn II.
