i really like listening to metal but i cant stand bands that scream or growl, i know its popular but i just cant stand it. are there any metal bands out there that are good but dont have constant screaming vocals or vocals that are really low and demonic. like metallica for instance, they're a great metal band but james hetfield never screams or growls he just has a good metal singing voice and i can actualy understand what he says.

So very true. Personally I strongly dislike growling and other types of "I have a hedgehog down my thoat" voices.
It's not always nasty though. Amorphis for example, use growling now and then, but it fits good with the music and sounds good.

As far as i'm concerned, you've answered your own question............



Dream Theater



Sorry im a DT nut- but honestly sometimes i find that i just cycle their albums now and then so their music doesnt get stale.

Maybe try out symphony x? Paradise Lost is a great album smile.gif

I have to agree with you about Dream Theater, my favorite progressive rock band! They are all virtuosos, and Petrucci has technique and tone for days! I, too, cycle through all their albums. Which is your favorite?

I don't know what nu-metal or emo or heavy metal means. They are just labels to pigeonhole music and bands. I like bands with a good rock sound, like Dream Theater, who have all the right ingredients. Any band that exhibits good musicianship, including the singer, is okay by me. I can't stand that screaming crap, or the bands that dwell on death, or dark subjects, or skulls, or whatever their problem is with society at the moment. I think it's time to jump on board the positive image bandwagon for a change. Why all the negativity? Of course, that's just my opinion...

I agree with your second paragraph, not so much the first.
*Prepares to get flamed*

I absoultey worship Petrucci, is a flawless player in my mind and I love watching "Perucci Solo's" of various songs from Dream Theater.

But. The band as a whole doesnt do much for me. Petrucci, Yes. Dream Theater, No.

Just my thoughts smile.gif

And about bands there are 3 bands I just start discovering and I really like them: firewind, blind guardian and Opeth (actually I first started listening to Opeth when I started reading this topic, but now I already like it tongue.gif )
