In response to Jono’s post about some (apparently) good shows coming up.
Why Death Metal (and similar) music disappoints me: The musicianship is great, but the vocals need to go. I’m a huge fan of Tool and a big reason for that is Maynard. Maynard shows that you can sing in a hard rock band and still sound good. Should all bands sound like Tool? No. Should all Death Metal bands who growl stop? No. But sometimes I wish I could listen to some of it (death metal) but I just can’t get past the vocals.
No disrespect meant for anyone who enjoys or even does that type of music. Just personal taste is all.
