Top 10 Metal Songs Where the Vocalist Provides Both Growls and Clean Vocals

Songs sung by one singer who switches from growls to clean vocals and vice versa.

Songs with 2 vocalists are not allowed (where one singer provides clean vox and another singer - growls).

- how good both types of vocals are: some singers are almost equally good at both, some others - either better at growls or clean vox
- how good the song is

My original Top 10 includes one song per band to provide variety but some bands have many songs that can be on this list.

The Top Ten Metal Songs Where the Vocalist Provides Both Growls and Clean Vocals

1 Ghost of Perdition - Opeth

Vox: Mikael Akerfeldt.
I would say he's equally good at both types of vocals though his growls impress me more. - Metal_Treasure


*whispers* along with many other bands - Ananya

2 Twilight - Edge of Sanity

Vox: Dan Swanö.
He's very good at both but probably his growls are a bit better. - Metal_Treasure

3 Tides of Blood - Into Eternity

Vox: Stu Block, currently the lead vocalist for Iced Earth.
Just play the song sample. He's so good at both types of vocals. But because Stu Block joined Iced Earth, a band that never used growls, he became known for his powerful clean vocals, reminiscent of Matt Barlow vocals. - Metal_Treasure

4 Panophobia - The Agonist

Vox: Alissa White-Gluz, currently in Arch Enemy.
Her growls are better than her clean voice but her clean vox are very good as well. - Metal_Treasure

5 Wrong Side - Strapping Young Lad

Vox: Devin Townsend.
His clean vox are surprisingly operatic! I would say his clean vox are better than his growls. - Metal_Treasure

6 Septuagint - Obscura

Vox: Steffen Kummerer
He prefers growling and rarely sings clean but in some songs he does. Septuagint is a very beautiful song. - Metal_Treasure

I think Jari is more confident when he does growls. - Metal_Treasure
