We all love a good death growl and everyone has their opinion on what constitutes the perfect one.   Thy Art Is Murder’s Andy Marsh weighs in on this Top 5.

Nergal from Behemoth

Very European, very different, strange vocal production, and he says important stuff with his lyrics.

Corpse Grinder from Cannibal Corpse

Very distinct, guttural style. Really kind of shaped Floridian death metal from the early ’90s. Not my cup of tea but very, very important and very, very sick. And that singer can windmill for an hour straight whilst doing death metal vocals. I don’t know how hard that is but it probably is really, really hard.

C.J. from Thy Art Is Murder

C.J.’ is pretty, pretty good, but he’s really lazy and could stand to do a lot better live. But in the studio he is killing it and on the album he kind of tried to do that European pronunciation thing that Nergal does.

Joe Bad from Fit For An Autopsy

A new one to the charts. Played in like local bands in Long Island or something. He’s actually super sick and does a lot of pitched yelling things that kind of remind me of The Ocean from Europe, but he’s definitely way more death metal.

Travis Ryan from Cattle Decapitation

Dude is an absolute freak and a pioneer of various vocal techniques that not many – I don’t know if any other person on the planet can do what he does. And they have a new record out as well, which is insane.
