|Growlers/raspers Me Likey|
Okay so Death/black metal and the like used to consist of around 70-80% of my musical tastes, rrso I thought I'd pay homage to some "guttered" vocalists I admire. And it's NOT in order
Mikael Akerfeldt. Probably my favourite of them all, such unrelenting power.
Anders Friden. I used to be an IF fanboy, and even now from a rational point
of view Anders has to be one of the most diverse death metal vocalist I've ever
Sigurd 'Satyr' Wongraven. Very different from the typical BM raspers, a great
unique timbre. Love his vocals.
Tomi Joutsen. I was pleasantly shocked when I heard his growls, they're very dark
and power filled. He uses them scarcely but they're definitely one of my favourites.
Adam 'Nergal' Darski. Need I say anything? The vocals are demonic in their
proportions, next time the neighbours annoy you, just play some Behemoth, you'll
see a "for sale" sign on their lawn the next day.
Jeff Walker. Listening to his rasps makes my throat hurt. Great delivery.
Chuck Schuldiner. He has influenced a whole genre, and has a very distinct growl.
Mikael Stanne. A very dynamic vocalist with a wide range who doesn't mind
experimenting, that keeps him interesting.
Dreams of Endless War
Petri Lindroos. High pitched and with incredible clarity.
Vegard 'Ihsahn' Tveitan. Black metal rasps in a progressive metal setting, they fit
well I say.
|11||Children Of Bodom|
Follow the Reaper
Angela Gossow. With her multiple layers of growls she can make a grown man wet
Storm of the Light's Bane
A Taste Of Extreme Divinity
Peter Tagtgren. Listen to "Apocalyse", he pretty much shows his whole range in
|15||Edge of Sanity|
Andreas 'Vintersorg' Hedlund
|18||Lamb of God|
Ashes Of The Wake
Randy Blythe. The only non-death/black metal entry, I just love the way his growls
sound, they leave me wanting more.
Johnny Wranning. Some songs sound like rip offs of bigger melodeath bands,
especially IF, but the vocals are terrific.
|20||At the Gates|
Slaughter Of The Soul
Tomas Lindberg. A band that helped start the melodeath movement, his vocals
remind me of Anders Friden at times, which is a good thing.
