Top 10 Languages for Singing Metal
The Top Ten
Equilibrium sound great in German. German would be good for death metal, too. German harshness would be very useful for any metal subgenre that is heavier. - Metal_Treasure
Italian is good for almost all music genres so why not metal? I think it would be great for symphonic and power metal. Opera is mostly in Italian. - Metal_Treasure
I know many songs in Finnish and I like them. I probably just got used to it. - Metal_Treasure
I think this language would be good for death metal as it has many deep, guttural sounds, so you already have a natural voice distortion. Besides, Danish also has harsh sounds because it's from the German language group. - Metal_Treasure
Norwegian is very melodic and high-pitched. Currently it's mostly used in black metal and folk metal songs.
Melodic language means that it sounds as if people sing a song when they speak.
What metal subgenre is melodic and high-pitched? Power metal.
I also think Judas Priest songs would sound good in Norwegian. - Metal_Treasure
Dutch is a mix of English and German, and has guttural sounds. I think Dutch would be good for death metal. - Metal_Treasure
It's a melodic language but unlike Norwegian, it’s not high-pitched. Heavy metal in Turkish sounds good to me. I think Turkish would be good for melodic death metal, too.
For example, I like this song: Mezarkabul (Pentagram) - Bu Alemi Gören Sensin - Metal_Treasure
To me it sounds similar to Finnish but I might be wrong. - Metal_Treasure
