Some might not consider them heavy metal but they are goth type metal and the music kicks butt. Check out NIGHTWISH, Especially the older stuff with Tarja singing.

what? They're very melodic and the singer is amazing. Plus the lyrics are deep and have real meaning, not just stupid horror/gore stuff most metal bands do.

definitely look at animals at leaders. Tosin Abasi is an amazing guitarist. Dream Theater is also a great metal band that doesn't need to ruin their music with screaming and growling

Very modern production as well, although a bit too clean IMO

try Judas priest, metallica, Black Sabbath, Black Label Society, Black tide, Iron madien
Steel panther

but seriously screaming can sound pretty ****ing awesome if you can get into it

Pretty good rec but they do use some growls on occasion. I'd mention something like Amputated Repugnance instead.

But he said he didn't mind the occasional growl.

Though Amputated Repugnance would be good too.

^ I like Casablanca too.

No mention of Dragonforce yet? I personally feel insulted, being Herman Li's go-to guy.

There are thousands upon thousands of bands that play extreme styles of music, and you dare to make a comment in which you assume that you know the lyrical content of most said bands?


Dude, ffs, you don't know most '' metal bands '' topics, Cannibal Corpse doesn't count as most of the worlds extreme acts

It's a pretty accurate statement though, in all honesty, plus I think he was referring to Brutal DM only really.

You're a fucking idiot. I guess I really have to explain this to you since you're too thick to read the fucking thread.

I first posted "mortician" in respone to the OP to be an ironic asshole. He asked for bands with clean vocals, and I posted Mortician, a band infamous for their brutal riffing, crazy blasting and insanely brutal vocals. Then another guy laughed at my post because of what a ridiculous answer it was, and I continued my trolling by pretending like Mortician is a melodic death metal band with clean vocals. Fucking christ, don't start crying because you just happened to read two sentences that you disagree with, you totally missed the whole context of the thing.

^ I don't really care, you don't know most heavy acts lyrical topics, and, due to the earths vast number of extreme bands, i dare say you never will
I don't care if you were trolling or not, your still incorrect


EDIT: And, you know, in all honesty, it sounds like your the one doing all the crying here, i was just pointing out the flaw in your statement
