Finland! Finland! Finland! The country where I'd quite like to be!

I really like the music, but I've never been much of a fan of harsh vocals. Can anyone recommend some songs/artists with that nice, heavy, crunchy, metal but without the harsh vocals?

Unfortunately, singing is a lost art in metal. Great riffs then when the singer steps up to the mike, he pukes in it.

I'm the same and here's some of what I've been listening to recently.

GNÔ - CANNIBAL TANGO - if you like some jazz thrown into your heavy metal and you don't mind silly lyrics

A.I.(d) - Bath Salts - crazy avant garde instrumental metal

Transcend - The Mind progressive, maybe not heavy enough for your tastes, great if you like dream theater 

And I've been listening to Nightwish's Imaginaerum for months. If the movie ever makes it near me I'll be there opening night.

I don't know about "crunchy" but 3 Inches of Blood is good "party" metal. tongue in cheek but still rocks.
I hate them, but Killswitch Engage might be for you, but it all depends on the album/singer and there's still screaming.
They're pretty gay, but you might like Lacuna Coil.
Let's not forget Opeth (again, I'm not a fan).
And I hate it, but Devin Townsend Project.

I wish all metal bands would release at least an instrumental version to accompany their album (like Periphery did - the instrumental version was really good, but the dude sings like a 15 year old yelling at his parents - ruins it). You can go to bandcamp.com and find lots of up and coming metal bands that release instrumental. They say they're looking for vocalists, but I say, release it as is.

Portal of I is easily the album of the year for me so far.

New Neurosis

New Graveyard

Nightwish does it, but you usually have to be a special edition version for it.

Most clean vocals are going to be found in the more melodic bands. It's rare to find extremely heavy music with traditional singing these days.

A lot of doom metal uses clean vocals

Yob

Om


Yakuza
is sort of expermental post-metal (grounded in metal but with jazz and some hardcore elements thrown in)

There's also a lot of good instrumental metal you might like

Blotted Science is arguably the most talented group of musicians to make a metal album since early 90's Death

Animals As Leaders

Behold the Arctopus (may be a bit too prog/wanky for general consumption)

Really though, you're closing yourself off to a lot of excellent music if you let harsh vocals turn you off of new stuff.

/think of the growls like another instrument adding depth and texture to the overall sound.

Well, depending on the size of your onion and if you were a big Sabbath fan (like me) then you're probably already a fan of The Sword.

Thanks for introducing me to Transcend. I'd been looking for something new. Kind of like what the Mahavishnu Orchestra would've sounded like if they had gone metal. In the words of my 80-yr old mother when she heard 'The Mind Awaits', "Damn, that's good."

And I've been listening to Nightwish's Imaginaerum for months. If the movie ever makes it near me I'll be there opening night.

Nightwish, as ever, rocks.

Dishing on clean vocals and not a single mention of Vortex/Simen Hestnæs? For shame, Farkers. For shame.

Lamented Souls - Essence of Wounds
Doom metal

ICS Vortex - Oil in Water
Blackened Prog metal

Ram-Zet hasn't been mentioned yet, and it has a nice mix of harsh and clean vocals. (Ok, really I just wanted to mention them).

SPna15: Your ignorance is not reality.


Yeah, the song I listened didn't suck until the gurgling boy opened jaws.
I suggest that you and clowns like you go fark yourselves and chop off your ears so the rest of us won't be subjected to squealing, mumbling, gurgling cliche metal bands.
I expect you think you look tough in black letter and glue on studs.

I farking love Moonsorrow. Weird coincidence that I've been listening to their two song fifty minute EP Hävitetty while driving all this week. I also second a lot of the recs this week. Most are well worth checking out.

Also, Enslaved just released a new album, RIITIIR, which I have yet to hear and can't wait to buy it.

I will admit, I do enjoy me some Manowar. They do appear to take themselves WAY too seriously, but I guess that's part of their appeal.

If you don't have their latest album, varjoina kuljemme kuolleiden maassa, it is fantastic.

I just saw them a few weeks ago with Tyr in Seattle. So good.

I've never understood bands that sing in foreign languages, but have english names.

I also love the music, but Its a waste that the band rocks and is playing great music, but the singer sounds like he just sustained multiple gun shots.

Monolith by Sylosis killer, tight, melodic thrash. Still making my way through it, but so far reminds me a lot of Elysian (and that's a good thing).

ModernPrimitive01: If anyone is into atmospheric black metal with an Appalachian twist check out my new album


Usually if I don't say anything about a rec it's because I don't like it, but, well, this being a community (albeit utterly dysfunctional) I feel like I should at least say something since no one else has. It's not my thing, but keep writing, recording, and putting yourself out there, man. I look forward to every rec on here.
