When I listen to Between The Buried And Me, I feel like the vocals are a bit too loud, particularly in Colors and Great Misdirect. Is there a way to reduce the vocal' volume by equalizing in a certain way? Or using another way other than that?

No.

But there is... another way.

idk, if you have itunes you can change the volume for that one song.

If you turn all of the frequencies all the way down on your equalizer, it will certainly reduce the volume of the vocals. Hope that helps.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

There isn't a way I can think of without significant processing in a DAW.

You can't really just scoop those frequencies because other instruments occupy some of the same frequencies. You would wind up with a track with no high-mids but where you can still hear the vocals.

move a thin, high eq peak slowly around the 1-5k area while playing a looped bit with prominent vocals
when you get to a bit where it brings out something that sounds really mouthy to you, widen the peak out a little and drop it below

should make the vocals a little less intelligible but it will make other things sound different too
hey if you like it though then go ahead and keep it like that

there is specialised software that does this but i'm not sure how much is on the market yet

ask them for the original recording and remaster it to your liking

I'd love that for albums by many bands.

If there's an instrumental version released by the band (unlikely, admittedly) you can invert the polarity of it in a DAW, and then import the original into another track and the combined result will give you the vocals alone (plus tiny changes they made for the instrumental mix). You can then use the resulting bounced mix over the top of the original again, but with the original at a higher volume, and again with one of the tracks having inverted polarity.

The waveforms will then cancel out the vocals but because the amplitude (volume, for simplicity's sake) is lower for the new a capella track, it will not remove all of the opposing waveform's vocals.
Hey, look. Sigs are back.
