New Amon Amarth off the bonus CD of their new release. This is a tribute song to AC/DC and it's just awesome -  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TF-BmOM9w5A

This song is an awesome collaboration I was able to take part in. If you like atmospheric stuff give it a try. I did the vocals -

I was waiting for the riffs to start. Never did.  I despise folk metal though because it has a level of cheesyness to it that is unparalleled.

It's posts like this that make me wonder if power-metal-farkers have ever heard actual cookie monster vocals. Not all harsh vocals are cookie monster vocals.

Harsh vocals for the sake of harsh vocals is what irks me.  You'll have a beautifully written instrumental, and then shiatty (and I mean FAILED harsh vocals) over the top of it.  That bugs me.  Or when the song content in no way warrants having harsh vocals, but they do it anyways because they have no singer and they can only do half-assed harsh vocals.

That being said, some vocalists do excellent harsh vocals, and it really fits well with their music.

I can see where you're coming from there, but on the flipside, I could see someone saying those things to explain why they don't like the band Isis (and me subsequently wanting to punch them). Where different vocal styles fit and don't fit is really as subjective as it can get. Just as a classical painting can be said to be "sublime" by portraying angels while evoking a dark or ominous feeling, metal can be sublime by layering harsh vocals over clean, melodious passages.

And when it's all said and done, you might still hate it? But that makes the world go round, baby!

we really can't get past arguing about vocals can we? If you don't like the vocals, post something you have been listening so the rest of us can get exposed to it.

/really liked the bagpipes and the female vocals. Didn't care for the guy's vocals, not because they weren't clean, it just didn't do it for me

Another bunch of non-singing dickheads. Ho Hum.
