Shure SM58 vs EV nd767a

I am considering one of two mic's for live lead vocals. One is Shure Sm58 and the other is ElectroVoice nd767a. The band will be performing Blues/Rock/Hard Rock tunes that also include some acoustic songs. I was wondering which mic would be the most appropriate. I would like the mic to be able to cut through the mix when the band starts playing hard rock tunes. Which would you recommend?

Hi, when comparing mikes on thier own through a pa the more powerfull one seems better but when the mixer is full of the bands other inputs the powerfull one can become a bit woolly. It can be controlled by taking down the input gain but once I did a gig with a loud singer using an E V mike and the pa amp burst into flames. :)
See if you can test them on a gig.

Unfortunately I wont be able to test them, and mics are non-returnable items, and no one in my immediate surrounding owns the EV nd767a... I wish I could test them side by side.

By the way I didn't know it was possible to do that kind of damage to a pa amp just with a mic.

Maybe the flaming amp was a coincidence but he was proud of his amp destroying voice he he
