Clean or Harsh?
Clean, definately! (But I like the growls as well...)
It depends on the day I suppose, but I voted for harsh. I liked the music that was made with these vocals very much. As I said, it depends on the day, but right now I am sticking with the harsher vocals.
Jonas has a great clean voice, I vote for clean
Clean. they fit the music much better, especially on BMD, the growls on that one are a HUGE weak point for me as they don't mesh well with the trance like feeling of the album. that and i'm not a huge fan of Akerfeldt's growls (except in Bloodbath), Jonas's would have been better.
The clean vocals, partly because I got into Katatonia through the more recent albums and because they perfectly complement the music on them...
This was tough for me but I chose clean. Probably JUST because they have released more clean vocaled stuff. The harsh definately (IMHO) fit the older style and the clean fits the new. I just have more listening options for the clean vocals so thats what I chose. Jonas has come a long way with his vocals in the clean style. With the old style there is only so much you can do with it, therefor limiting the music.
Dont get me wrong I thoroughly enjoy the growls as well, but I have enjoyed the progress he has made in his clean vocals.
Anyway yes, I prefer the clean.
I think I prefer clean voice. Jonas clean voice is just superb. I think it's one the best on the alternative scene. Although I like his growl.... but I will pick clean voice.
Clean, no fucking doubts... for crunch I vote for Anders ;p
i like jonas' clean, mikael's growl vocals
i have to go for Jonas' clean voice. as it's said, his growls fit Katatonia's older style very well, the represented atmosphere as well, at the same time i can't imagine their newer stuff otherwise than lined with clean voice, the way Jonas do it more moving and deeper ever since. i've discovered the band with DO so it's like a brandmark for me, clean vox has always the priority like.
I love Jonas' clean voice, but I love the growls as well.
Clean of course. I mean, how could there be any comparison? Jonas' harsh vocals I thought reached their peak at his origin, on the Jhva Elohim Meth demo. He is most definitely at his emotive apex when he croons in his commanding and desparate clean delivery.
hmm... not very easy to say, somewhat sometimes they feel as from different bands... i would go with both i guess... desperate and emotive/passive. well sung and growled
I enjoy them both. I love Mikael's "distorted" (as credited on the Brave Murder Day) vocals and feel that they fit well. Jonas' distorted vocals work with the old style as well. His clean vocals complement the new school Katatonia.
Different styles, both excellent.
Harsh and Clean and whatever else. The harsh vocals wouldn't fit in that good with the music now though.
I love the vocals on Brave Murder Day
As a growler, Jonas is above average for sure, but nothing spectacular. His clean voice is something very unique however, so I vote for cleans.
They're all good, but I gotta give the nod to the clean vocals.
Harsh, no doubt about that... metal rules!
