Silencer and Inquisition are the two bands that come to mind when I think of musically good bands that I can't listen to due to unbearable vocals. What about you guys? Can be from any music style.

Inquisition are a bit rough, but I still like them, and Silencer are great.

As for other vocals. I can't think of any bands where I really enjoy the music but hate the vocals that much. However, for the entire metal-core genre, the vocals are by far my least favorite part, but at best the music is only boring wankery that just rips off one of my least favorite metal genres, melodic death metal.

I dunno. I love Silencer, though. I know the vocals are kind of difficult to enjoy, but they're not that much worse than Weakling (which was a fucking amazing band).

I think a lot more people tolerate Weakling because the vocals are pretty buried in the mix, and the production is rough as it is. Silencer has unusually good production and the vocals really cut through the mix, so I think that's why so many people can't dig it.

I still love Silencer though.

I do like Weakling. From what I remember Silencer's vox were not only more audible, but they took the whole depressive sound to a much further level than Weakling (if Weakling's lyrical content even dealt with depression). Shrike I doubt this band is up your alley, but the vocalist from The Ocean is now in War From A Harlot's Mouth. Jeff, I consider myself a metalcore fan, but the metalcore I like isn't really the melodeath influenced variety. You're not missing out on too much when it comes to those bands anyways.

I was gonna be snarky and say every metal band ever, but then I remembered that heavy metal would suck dick even without vocals.

He's talking about Loic, not that guy.

Weakling don't have lyrics. It's just gibberish/screaming.

Nico? He was on Precambrian a bit. I think he was more of the main vocalist on Aeolian. Mike Pilat was the main for Precambrian. And Loic Rosetti is their current vocalist that has done the last two albums. A lot of people don't like him.

I like Gossard's vocals in everything he does vocals for, including Weakling.

The webzine Maelstrom did an interview with him in their first issue. I just tried searching for it, and apparently Maelstrom is offline, which makes me sad cuz it was a really great zine. But I did find some blog who transcribed it. It's a great read, but kinda long. I'm pretty sure I've mentioned and even linked to the site and maybe even the interview before, maybe it was as long ago s on IGN though.

http://hubsterblog.blogspot.com/2007/04/interview-with-john-gossard-weakling.html

And yeah Silencer really qualifies on this list for me. I know a lot of it is the production and mixing of it, but still, that fucking guy is nuts and I dunnz likez itz.

I liked Loic at first, but now his vocals are getting really stale. I'm scared for their album. I think it's going to be really disappointing.

Shrike said it's instrumental and I read something from Robin that said it was mainly instrumental with a little bit of vocals. Could be good. Heliocentral is a really nice listen (the instrumental disc of Heliocentric). I used to ride around listening to the cd and just singing/screaming/growling along.

Yeah. He says an actual sentence every now and then, but it was all improvised so Gossard has no idea what the "lyrics" even are. Vast majority of it is just screaming.

I've done that before with Genital Evisceration. Sadly, I also did that on one Lance of Longinus song. I have the general lyrics for it... but the actual recorded take was different and I have no fucking clue what I'm saying. It's the black metal section in "Broken Spirit" around the 7 minute mark or so.

I think there may be a notebook lying around somewhere that has the rearranged lyrics for that song. But it's an entire country away so fuck it.

Is everybody once again ignoring my link-dropping of the Jon Gossard interview where he details the vagueness of their lyrics, among myriad other cool stuff? Cuz it's seriously cool info and a good read.

It's a good interview. I already read it way back in the day, but I read it again and had forgotten a few things from it.

I saved it for later because I didn't have time to read it then.

Just read it. He's actually not as weird as I imagined he would be. Seems like a normal guy. From shit I'd heard, I always thought he was this really introverted and unapproachable guy. I don't know whether I like this revelation or not.

Yeah, that's probably not the case. I've seen Dispirit, but have also run into Gossard in SF before and he seemed like a fairly normal metal dude.

He's exceptionally approachable and normal. Even his regular speaking voice he sounds just like "a dude." And I think that's pretty cool, to not be either some poser weirdo, or someone who actually is just super esoterically whacked and cryptic. Kinda like it can give hope to those who think they're too ordinary to accomplish anything extraordinary.
