I'm a big fan of clean vocals in heavy music, specifically more somber sounding bands. I've come across a few bands who may not be considered 100% metal, but are certainly heavy enough, and have a very unsettling, anxious, angry, and tense sound with exclusive clean singing; namely Big | Brave and Helium Horse Fly. While they're pretty different in style, they are both very experimental, avant-garde, and just sound anxious. I specifically like how the vocals are high in the mix, and the lyrics are pretty clear. I'm not looking exclusively for female vocals, but just exclusive CLEAN vocals (no growls, screams, etc). The overall point is wanting to hear something extreme, heavy, and unsettling with clean vocals. Here are two songs in particular to describe what I'm speaking of.

I'd say Oathbreaker seems very similar with those bands you linked. Especially Big Brave sounded a lot like Oathbreaker's album "Rheia". Even though they also have screams, they're not used in every single song...

Another one would be Chelsea Wolfe, whose voice is very similar with Caro Tanghe (the singer in Oathbreaker).
