Sounds like a Black Metal band.

Having spent 3 weeks in isolation (with better half & kids, lucky me), I definitely feel the need to activate myself by joining the comp this month, but with no privacy it's going to be difficult. Among other things I think familiy and neighbours will have me sectioned if I start practising BM style growling or other metäl vocal styles. So the only thing I've got round to doing is research. I am now capable of distinguishing grindcore, death metal and thrash (I think). Since I have Scandinavian ties I feel an obligation to go for Black Metal, but the whole shtick is just too silly. Sludge appeals more. Voivod type psych/prog metal or other crossover type styles are something I might actually listen to, but I'm probably not techinically capable of replicating that sort of thing. If all else fails, I'll go for a minimalist grindcore outburst. Napalm Death apparently issued a single with a 1 second track.

Black metal vocals aren’t really growled, they’re more shrieked than anything else, especially Scandinavian BM

I'm sure you're right, but I don't think my neighbours and family will appreciate shrieking any more than growling. :hihi:

Treid to listen to it, but out of the blue my audio interface called it a day. Yay. Not ideal in the circumstances (or ever, really).

in my teens, i favoured carcass over napalm death. although i enjoyed both, napalm death where a bit militant political compared to carcass singing about graverobbing and rotting cocks

though of course, the mighty "boltthrower" took the mantle of gods of the grind!
for singing about warhammer and the kaoss gods :hihi:

woooooooooooorld eater!!! :band2:
