Anybody know any bands that are modern metal (like btbam, protest the hero, DEP) but don't have alot growling.

The instrumental aspects of the music is pretty insteresting and good to listen to, but I can't really enjoy the vocals much. Too harsh, I guess

Power metal? Or just listen to bands with harsh vocals until you can enjoy them.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Scale the Summit or Animals as Leaders (if you're into instrumental music).

check out bands like Unexpect, Blotted Science, Pagan's Mind, Liquid Tension Experiment, and the Music Subforums.

The last three A7X albums, that's not quite what you had in mind but it's accessible and there is little to no screaming

Get used to harsh vocals somehow? Most instrumentally interesting bands nowadays use them.

Progressive Metal maybe?


Maybe Progressive Mathcore is probably a better description?
I mean, if I want bands like BTBAM and PTH it's a term I'd use.

The Fall of Troy is about 50/50 screaming and singing, and is a very good band for easing yourself into listening to screaming.

Animals as leaders is pretty good to listen to.
But, I don't own an 8-string, so I could never cover the stuff

Im with you. I hate the screaming. BFMV is an exeption as they hod it back and when they do let it go it seems to fit just fine.

Ye, that could work.
Unless there's an odd chord which requires all 8 strings

The main reason I'm doing this is to listen to some new guitarists. The only 'difficult' guitarist I've been listening to is Robert Fripp

If that's the case, why not try some jazz fusion or instrumental rock? Shawn Lane, Allan Holdsworth, Guthrie Govan, John McLaughlin, Marco Sfogli, Daniele Gottardo, etc might all interest you.

I am gonna try and learn AH's 'Devil Take The Hindmost' soon, as a matter of fact.
There's only a few sections in the piece where things really get tense, most of it is just knowing how to voice the chords and notes properly.

Haven't heard of the last two you mentioned, may have to check them out.

I'd still like to listen to some of the bands mentioned here because I want to broaden my tastes a little.

Mastodon or most thrash metal. Also stoner metal like Electric Wizard (at least on Black Masses) uses fairly accessible vocal style.

Perhaps it's because I've listened to death metal since like 1990 but I don't understand how something as simple as death vox can turn somebody away from listening. It's just a vox style. None of the people slamming on death vox ever complain about bands not using clean guitar tones, so what's the deal?

At least now you have a band like Opeth with fairly articulate death growls as well as clean vox to mix it up once in a while. Almost anybody I know that's gotten into extreme metal the last like 5 years did so by way of Opeth.
#25
Hey guys I'm looking for some modern prog that is more centered around the use of 4 power chords per song

I'd also like some modern crust that doesn't make use of d-beats.

I've never really been exposed to it. Plus, when you're young you get bombarded with people saying how bad it is that you just kind of don't bother with it. I'm pretty open to alot of types of music, but this type of music has always been abit hard for me to get into (mostly because of the vocals for some reason). It just feels wrong to not give this stuff a proper try.

I'm gonna give Opeth a try, I hear alot of people say that they're quite soft for their genre.

it's supposed to be hard to get in to, that's what makes it rewarding. Challenging yourself in all aspects of life is purposeful.

The Dillinger Escape Plan - I know it has harsh vocals but you may get used to it.
Opeth - Have some really cool soft parts in their songs but expect mad growls in them though

People say Opeth is soft only because he does not write songs in a straight forward or stereotypical death metal style. Even his songs aggressive parts aren't quite typical for death metal. Their last album has no death vox on it (and aside from that it's kind of meh). You could try any of the albums from the middle of their discography.

Their last tour used only songs with clean vocals actually. And it was rather nice I think.

The song that was on GH:WoR is actually pretty good. If their vocals are mostly like that, then I don't mind too much. There are parts when his voice reminds me of Mike Patton's.

The song was 'setting fire to sleeping giants.'

EDIT: Btw, thanks for the recommendations

I'm in the same boat as you TS. I love the instruments in the music but can't get into the screaming growling stuff. BTBAM is really the only band that I can tolerate with growling. Protest the Hero, imo, has the perfect combination and clean vocals and other stuff.

I would recommend Scale the Summit, Animals As Leaders, Mastodon, The Human Abstract, and Tesseract


Edit: After looking through this thread, I think I will give Opeth a listen. I heard good things, but didn't realize what genre they were.

Try this.
I find it quite easy to listen to for some reason (I posted a GH link cos they usually have better mixes).

I'm not trolling, I was just pointing out how ridiculous TS request are.

And if you're insisting that a) minor threat is crust, and b) they didn't use d-beats. You're wrong on both accounts. Sure they helped influence the genre, but no one would actually consider them crust, and most of their songs had d-beats. I'm sure not all of them did, but that's besides the point.

I forget to mention DEP in my post. I do like them, and that is one of their best songs.


After watching that though I think I break out the PS2 and play some Guitar Hero.
