What band do you think has the most unintelligable vocal style imaginable, something that even if you read the lyrics while listening to the song a thousand times over, you still couldn't understand what in the world they were saying.

(Note: I probably mis-spelled "unintelligable", don't grammar nazi me )

I would have to say gutterals. I like them, but it's hard to understand the lyrics that a band like Devourment or Gutteral Secrete writes.

Obviously, but which band do you think has the most unintelligable gutterals?

That should be the question I put up there.. I couldn't word it right xD.. I need sleep .

Akercocke's lows

Or Torso**** in general


I still like 'em.

Jason can do no wrong, plus he calls them "dog vocals" so that's a comedic plus.

For me - Disgorge and Cryptopsy (Worm)

Both are just -

Alot of grind-esque bands are more or less incomprehensible. Gutteral secrete and Circle of dead children for example. One the death metal side, I can think of two off the top of my head. First is Barnes era Cannibal Corpse. Second, and definitely the most incomprehensible non-gutteral growls i've ever hear is Iniquity.

edit: Forgot cryptopsy with Worm. I bet the lyrics were written after the vocal tracks were recorded in some cases.

+1 to Worm. He was good, but you couldn't understand anything that he growled.
#13
Anything by Lord Worm. The lyrics don't matter. Also, Obituary, because John Tardy is too brutal for lyrics. And, of course Brodequin (wtf?).

I don't like Worm.

But, Jason...I forgive him because his screeches are great and his cleans...are...

Fabulous.

And Karl Sanders from Nile has awesome lows, but you can't understand them at all. I missed his vocals on Ithyphallic. He didn't do hardly any.
#17
I find rap more unintelligible then most death metal and allot of grind in all honesty. Reek era Carcass was pretty hard to make out though.

Acid probably makes you feel less like a hedonistic raver piece of trash, too.

#18
That's the only thing I dn't like about Ithyphallic.

Oh, and I forgot Bill Steer.

His vocals on songs like Psychopathologist are just...

Monotonous drivel.

Brutal DM Frog or similar Vox are too brutal to be processed by the mortal brain. They have their use within the context of the Music, but that use certainly isn't to relay lyrics

Them, and Wormy "Dog Vocals" describes him well too.

Psycroptic. That vocalist rocks but I dont understand a word hes saying.

Gutteral Secrete is brutal death and Barnes is really understandable. You can pretty much catch every word.

As for the most unintelligible: Cryptopsy (worm era), Xasthur (malefic), Waking the Cadaver (if you haven't watched this yet, do it now: http://youtube.com/watch?v=uCBSX0XDSVI. Worst annunciation....and the music sucks too.), Despondency (or pretty much any band that pig squeals) and **** and Ball Torture / The Day Everything Became Nothing.
