Progressive metal.

On the note of replacing growling with clean vocals, I'd love to see Maiden cover "The Jester Race" (whole album) and get rid of those awful vocals.

I love metal instrumentally, but growling isn't for me.

The Prophet? Then we'd have guys crashing airplanes into buildings for FOB and that would be even worse than the current state of the world.

I'm actually considering just taking a bunch of my favorite DM songs, replacing them with clean singing, and making a album out of it. But I don't know if I could actually find people willing to do that.

Well I certainly wouldn't want to hear clean vocals in my death metals if the singer doesn't intend them to be clean, and even then they better be damn brutal or bleak so as not to ruin the mood of the song.

I think Bruce Dickinson singing "Moonshield" would be quite nice.

Or at least Hetfield...

Neither of them would sound good with death metal, if you ask me.

I think it could sound amazing if done correctly. I really want to try this. But I can't play necro or have a band

you forget that vocals are a method of expression just like the guitar, bass, keys, etc. and just like changing the lyrics can be compared to changing the notes you play on any other instrument, changing the tone completely changes the feel of the music. Changing the tone of vocals includes growling, gurgling, getting that raspy feeling for certain metal songs, and perfectly fits almost all death metal. Thats a lot of why its death metal.

When you think of vocals as another instrument, like the guitar, bass, etc., as something that adds to atmosphere and the emotions needed to be expressed in the music, instead of only a track that has poetic messages to express, you will be able to begin appreciating growls, gurgles, and any and all vocal approaches to the music, because that is what shapes it.

For example, Demilich's vocals bring to mind a swampy place, begins of his toad-like gurgling.
Obituary's vocals brings me to a rotting feeling, as if when singing along like he does that my face is actually rotting away and melting.

I forget the name of Opeth's singer, but how about him doing (aggressive) clean vocals over "Moonshield?"


By aggressive, I mean something like Master of Puppets. Hetfield is singing, but it gritty rather than operatic like Bruce Dickinson and Geoff Tate.

Quote by bootyguard
you forget...and melting.
Except the growling ruins what is otherwise beautiful, albeit heavy, music in songs such as "Moonshield" and "Jotun."

In the right place, growling works; I can't imagine Tate singing the end of "Blackwater Park." However, I dislike growling in most cases.

Well I've never really liked In Flames very much. They're tollerable to me, but nothing more. And yes, I own both the Jester Race and Clayman. They've got some good guitar work but I don't like their stuff, it just doesn't flow right with me.

And it took me quite a while to like growls. The first record where I liked growls rather than simply slamming the headphones down like I used to do with even higher-pitched growlsy-stuff like Bodom was "Demigod" by Behemoth. It blew my mind how the comprised such great music that was brutal and heavy yet still exotic and enticing, and it would not have worked without the vocals the way they were.

Anyway, I like death metal more now than probably any other genre, but I used to love thrash so immensely, and mostly because it had the aggression of death metal without the vocals, but I've learned to appreciate the vocals and all its done is opened up a lot of musical horizons for me. anyway, i honestly can't see most death metal fitting as non-growled, because thats how the music is crafted for. Maybe proto-death stuff like Possessed with more thrashy vocals but thats about it. The rest of it is made the way it is for a reason.

if muhammed was replaced by the front man of fall out boy, the band would be technical death nu-metal

Jesus Christ...... what a retarded thread. This makes it the 93485934th noob who thinks listening to Necrophagist makes him a death metal fanatic, despite their catchy melodic playing.

I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

That is without a doubt the best and only ukelele Necrophagist cover I have ever seen. And if Necrophagist had clean vocals then my penis would be a vagina.
#32
Someone really should record a cover version with the vocals sung.

Or else just remove the vox from the track and sing over it...

Just imagine Only Ash Remains with clean vocals....

that's like saying, 'thrash would be great, but why do they need all that distortion?'

By dubbing it over with a midi track?

Ok, some of the bits match up, but not all of them. I call BS. Plus, there is no description. All the info says is: Me, playing Necrophagist with my electric ukulele.

Nothing about using effects. BS....

Like look at what he's playing at 1.10 onwards...
