Added DiffLines:

* Much like fellow metal virtuoso vocalist Mike Patton, Music/DevinTownsend uses almost every vocal style under the sun, and is ''very'' good at implenting harsh vocals into his music.
* [[Wrestling/RandySavage 'Macho Man' Randy Savage]] had this as his normal speaking voice.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Dream Theater}}'s James LaBrie normally did melodic vocals but has done occasionally employed harsher vocals, notable on Black Clouds and Silver Linings. The song ''A Nightmare to Remember" is also the only time the band has used the death growl technique, though that wasn't done by LaBrie.

** And to show how "harsh" it is, Cookie Monster creator Creator/FrankOz stated that the guttural voice [[http://web.archive.org/web/20090103110228/http://opinionjournal.com/la/?id=110007902 "blew my pipes out" the first time he tried, and once performing it for a whole day, "my normal voice would be a half an octave lower."]]

* All DeathMetal singers (TheOtherWiki even refers to this vocal style as a "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_growl Death Growl]]"). In the early years of the genre, [[SesameStreet "Cookie Monster"]] vocals were basically the only thing that separated it from just dirty, fast thrash. (in fact, a lot of Allmusic reviews of the genre use the words "[[http://www.google.com/search?q=%22Cookie+Monster%22+site:allmusic.com Cookie Monster]]") Bands who go beyond strict use of deep growls (and perhaps occasional high-pitched screams) are often accusing of being sellouts and posers unless the band in question has ProgressiveMetal leanings or otherwise has segments where cleans could actually fit the song.
