This guy is litterly an insane vocalist! Besides growling, he does different kind of screams, for example in some songs he does a special type of scream that sounds like a troll, witch is sick! And velociraptor scream. He can also do pigsquel's. And he is the reason that made me become a better deathmetal vocalist
And love his band Cattle Decapitation. I personly don't like most deathmetal bands becuse of most vocalist sound monotone to me. That's my opinion.
