rickycal78: SPna15: rickycal78: SPna15: The hostile response is because your Cookie Monster comment wasn't nearly as clever as you think it was (yes, even if you don't think it was clever at all, it's still less clever than that). That shiat was played out 20 years ago.So were cookie monster vocals.And clean vocals were played out way before that.There's also a range in between that's not clean like say Rob Halford, or Bruce Dickenson, but aren't your stereo typical cookie monster shiat. I tend to just call them aggressive vocals, where there's either a balance of cookie monster and clean or that range in the middle. Bands like Slayer, Soulfly, or something more recent Straight Line Stich who I think does a nice balance switching between aggressive and clean vocals, although I'm sure some would say they sometimes sound a bit too mainstream or "nu-metal"ish. I'm sure people will say the same of Otep, that seems to strike a decent balance. Gojira sometimes straddles the line between aggressive and too cookie monsterish for my tastes, but they aren't bad. The point was, there's more to metal than cookie monster, and there's more to metal than clean. The folks that have the restrictive "it's cookie monster or nothing" tastes can have them. I'll take some variety to my metal, just easy on the cookie monster stuff.
