    Like Fire by Bloodbath

    And I agree with Heir Apparent as well. You'd think the man's vocal chords would weaken with age, but it seems like his growls have actually improved in some ways...

    IMO, can't be done. My favourite part is b/t times 5:10 and and 5:32. Played on full blast with *large* headphones... unstoppable.

    Just thinking off the top of my head, I've always liked John Tardy's growls - they are great, very expressive (in a way) and very recognisable.

    Nile - Von Unaussprechlichen Kulten. The ending of the song with Toller-Wade's vocals is truly amazing.

    As far as really low growling goes, I really like Mikko Kotamäki of Swallow the Sun. Not sure if he's better (he's pretty different stylistically), but holy shit he's good.

    IMO, David Vincent has a better growl than Mike. Domination, God of Emptyness, Blessed are the sick... guy has some serious growl going on without turning into an inintelligible amorphous sound (yes, Chris Barnes - YOU!)

    :kickass: BWP the song is perhaps one of the most brutal, haunting, intense, epic, dark piece of music written in the past century. Particularly at 8:05:headbang::headbang::headbang::headbang::headbang::headbang::headbang:

    Got that "Eviiiiiil...Attack. With Hate...Sataaaaaan....In the Fires of Hell Awaits..." part from Chapel of Ghouls stuck in my head and it's definitely as good or better than Mike.
