    I felt the same way when I first heard Dark Matter Dimensions, where neither of the 2 new singers could do the growling or singing as well as Alvestam, but they've gotten better with each album. Have you heard The Singularity? It's definitely worth picking up if you don't have it. It's the best of the albums with the new singers and I'd rank it higher than Holographic Universe.



    And although it would've been nice if Alvestam had stayed with Scar Symmetry, the Solution .45 stuff is still pretty good. They have 3 albums out. Have you given any a listen?

    This right here. Ankerfelt had one of the greatest DM voices ever. Its a shame what age, years of smoking/touring has done to it.

    Travis is an absolute monster. He has probably the widest range in all of death metal.

    Rutan just rules in general. One of my favorite dudes in metal.

    Also, getting away from death metal, but being one of my favorite bands and boasting top tier vocals I have to throw in Archgoat

    Too many guys in this thread sound the same. Need some variety up in here.









    And, how is there no Barney in here?

    barnes is a classic death metal vocalist. he has also been smoking pounds of weed every day for the last 40 years. his vocals are tired because he's old. it happens to the best of us. he was an innovator for the genre and i'll always have a soft spot for him. hes also one of those dudes that doesn't do effects on his vocals which seems to also extend to compression and eq which in my opinion is a mistake but hey, hes the dude in charge.

    there are plenty of modern death metal vocalists doing cool shit out there right now. i'll always love corpsegrinder, lord worm and glen benton though. early 90s death metal was raw and dangerous sounding.

    try as hard as you can to not want to tear your house apart and run around until you puke listening to this.
