I do like Death Metal. I also enjoy Black Metal - the quick tempo change in Ye Entrancemperium is one of the great Metal moments of all time.
But this thread title is about musical truth rather than taste/opinion. And the musical truth is that for the most part, singing>growling. Heck, even the most talented growler of all time (Akerfeldt) seems to enjoy singing more than roaring.
