ok, i'm a death metal man myself, but my friend asked me if there are any metal bands without the growlies and such..
i told him bands like maiden but yeah thats about the extent of my expertise on that.
he's a rockabilly guy or whatever so not something too crazy i guess

Symphony X, Iced Earth, Blind Guardian, Nevermore, Dream Theater... Most power metal

Last night I had a dream that I bought The Mantle on vinyl for $9.99 and it came with a DVD and shirt...

Then I woke up and life sucked.

Go to the recommendation thread on here and look for power metal and progressive metal.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

All power metal, almost all prog, a lot of doom metal.

I'd go so far as to say just as many metal bands use clean vocals as use growls.

CTHEDIT: Edit before someone tells me of a power metal band that use growls, I don't listen to much power metal

Depends if he wants a metal sounding metal album...if it's just the metal band aspect with the clean vox he wants...

I'd recommend "Damnation" by Opeth...one of the best records ever and there's no growls...

would glam metal and hair metal count? if so then maybe recommend some motley crue, some poison, Guns and Roses, etc

If glam/hair metal don't count look up Firewind, they are a ****ing amazing metal band. also look up some hammerfall and some metallica. also think about sabbath and some solo ozzy stuff.

I would check out Cynic, they have growls, but not a lot, the singing is far more done, and they're an all around very talented band.
