Just beyond THE PALE, lying in wait...

Only made this thread to honour the mighty Bret Hoffman (RIP) really!!! :wink: But I remember getting The Ten Commandments from a mate in school on a recorded tape (the only other metalhead in the class!) and just being fucking blown away by the vitriolic performance spewing out of Mr. Hoffman's windpipe. Needless to say, I duly went up to Tommy in Soundseller and got an original copy on tape sometime around Christmas '91....the only other challenger that I can think comes close from that era was maybe Mr. Benton's faultless introduction to us all, immense.........any more?

Glen Benton, first Deicide record. Pure primitive savagery!

Resurrection embalmed existence absolutely blew me away when I first bought it Paul degoyler vocals and story telling between songs made it more sinister,I could throw in obituary slowly we rot but for me Resurrection just nicks it

Benton on the first Deicide record, for the OTT "evilness". Also, David Vincent on Blessed Are The Sick. The variety in his vocals is great on that one.

John Tardy. Slowly We Rot was fucking insane sounding when it came out, he wasn’t even trying words, just noise. There was nothing else like it at the time.

Last 2 posts without doubt. Slowly We Got and Left Hand Path were the first releases that came to mind.

Yep, Glen Benton for me... pure menace. I played that album to death. Superb stuff.

Reifert on Severed Survival. He sounds like an actual mentaller.

Benton for sure.
Frank Mullen on Effigy is just a monster.

The vocal trade offs on Exhumed's mighty Gore Metal really blew me away too.
Other than those, to me most death metal vocalists got better on their second and subsequent albums (e.g. Schuldiner, Barnes, Sanders, Vincent)

Speaking of trade-offs, the vocals on Extreme Conditions Demand Extreme Responses couldn't be any better if you ask me.

Maybe not quite in the same league as some of those mentioned but Matti Kärki on Like an Everflowing Stream and Jörgen Sandström on Into the Grave surely worth a mention. Most albums mentioned so far appear to be from the Golden 1990/1991 era.

Really is one of the best. Pure, unadulterated, death metal filth, but he somehow pulls out some great vocal hooks.
