* In another male-and-male example, RhapsodyOfFire's CD-single release of "The Magic of the Wizard's Dream" featured a duet version of the album track between singer Fabio Lione (tenor) and Christopher Lee (bass--yes, ''that'' Creator/ChristopherLee)--in four different languages!

* PeterGabriel's done this trope on more than one occasion; with Music/KateBush in "Don't Give Up", Sinead [=O'Connor=] in "Blood of Eden" and(in a male-male example) African vocalist Youssou [=NDour=] in "In Your Eyes". His live album "Secret World" features Paula Cole("Where Have All The Cowboys Gone?") doing back-up vocals for the whole concert.

* "Baby I'm An Anarchist" sees Against Me! adding female vocals to their normal gravelly ones.
** "Borne On The FM Waves Of The Heart" does this again, with Tegan Quin (Half of ''Music/TeganAndSara'') providing the counterpoint to Tom Gabel's vocals.

* Dutch SymphonicMetal group Music/{{Delain}} tends to have lead vocalist Charlotte Wessels sing in clean soprano, and whenever a song requires harsh vocals, a guest vocalist (or, in the case of April Rain, ex-guitarist Ronald Landa) steps in (See the tracks "Tragedy of the Commons" and "Hands of Gold" for a guest spot for Music/AlissaWhiteGluz). Also, once or twice an album she does a duet with Marco Hietala, known for doing this in his usual gig as part of Music/{{Nightwish}}.
* Music/TheDarkElement normally avoids this, with the men of simply singing harmony to Music/AnetteOlzon (when they sing at all). However, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eidS1nyQB50 "Dead to Me"]] includes a few moments of Music/{{Epica}}-esque roars.

* An early example can be found on Mr Rainbow, a 1974 track off Music/CasablancaMoon by Music/SlappHappy. Some parts are sund in a very coarse voice by Peter Blegvad, the others in a mellow childlike voice by Dagmar Krause.

* Ditto with {{The Agonist}}, due to Alissa White-Gluz' ability to sing both clean and growling vocals.

* Theatre Of Tragedy was allegedly the first metal band that used the soprano girl with grunting man variant.
** Certainly the Trope Codifier of soprano girl/grunting man - Paradise Lost and The Gathering had done this before, but Theatre of Tragedy were the first to make it popular.
* Music/{{Nightwish}} has been moving toward this style since changing soprano leads.
** Since bassist-vocalist Marco Hietala joined the band. ''Once'', Tarja Turunen's last studio album with the band, used this style extensively.
** They've been using this since ''before'' Hietala joined. Anyone remember [[EpicRocking The Phaoroh Sails to Orion]]?
** Even before that, ''Beauty and the Beast'' from their first album includes Tuomas.

* Porcelain Black (AKA Porcelain and the Tramps) is a one-woman example, and also an American example. She alternates between a clear, soft, high voice and a Main/{{Guttural Growler}} voice in most of her songs.

** Porcelain Black and Jeffree Star's "Prisoner" is an interesting take on this. Porcelain's part is raspy, but very high-pitched. Jeffree's part is in a clear, but deep, voice.
