Now I would like to make this clear: I am not a clean vocals only kind of guy, but for the most part the death metal bands I've tried (which admittedly isn't much) have had vocals that are just incoherent grunting, like Cannibal Corpse. I also want to mention that I understand the point of death metal vocals: To make it sound like you are listening to death himself as well as to match the music and lyrical subject matter. But I would still like to be able to understand the vocals. So are there any death metal bands with, at the very least, mostly coherent vocals?

Immolation, Ross Dolan is a perfect example of a vocalist with a powerful but coherent delivery

Where's your band?

This is all relative. Someone who listens to a lot of this genre will be able to understand vocals much more easily than someone who doesn't. Help us to help you by giving some examples of the level of clarity you're looking for, so people can make direct comparisons and recommend accordingly.

to be as obvious as possible; death - chuck's vocals can divide opinions, but they're definitely coherent
