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.

I don't think I've ever seen/met anyone who would only listen to harsh vocals - every single person (that I remember at least) that likes harsh vocals also enjoys many bands with clean vocals.

I have heard from tons of people who won't listen to anything with harsh vocals though.

Maybe we've met different people. Personally, my preferences have a lot more to do with the music than the vocals though - as long as everything sounds good together I don't care what style a particular instrument/voice is played in.

Harsh vocal whiners need to shut up and listen to some Witch Ripper.
There's plenty of good metal with clean vocals out there.
