Metal bands usually don't have good singers, lol.
that depends on the band. some bands have incredible singers, take Dream Theatre for example, or Crimson Glory. Or if you want something heavier - Opeth's singer has a great cleat voice, even though most of the songs are growling
Haha. Well good singing to me doesn't involve any screaming.
Singing + screaming + growling = no fun for my ears. ;)
I though so too, but last summer a friend dragged me into 6 hours of black/death metal festival in Toronto. Live on stage these guys sound different, and so does the music. It was awesome even though I'm more of a blues/classic rock fan. And the way they play their guitars is incredible, wish I could play like that
listen to how fast the guitas are on that link i posted it will blow your mind.
do you play? it's not a matter of speed, it's a matter of feeling and technique. listen to Led Zeppelin - they aren't that fast, but every note is simply exactly where it should be, making the song great.
anyone ever heard ANATHEMA
there is no screaming in there but the music,lyrics and the voice of the singer are awesome
anyway that doesn't mean the screaming is bad
sometime you need to here some sceaming
well i guess music should be like life -> life isn't always about roses and rainbows ;)
That was awesome! And I adamantly disagree with several posts--it is just a matter of opinion at to what "good" is. Try growling or screaming in tune, like a metal singer and you will quickly gain appreciation for the difficulty. Being a metalhead, and an old one at that (over 40), I would not classify Dream Theater as metal--they are progressive. And Metallica, well...back in the day I could mention them without the look of disgust, but not now.
Kudos to the mention of Opeth on this board! And indeed, their lead singer rocks....nuff of my growling...
