I didn't say that. Being a good/great death metal vocalist is one thing (though I'm still not convinced there is such a thing), but being a passable one seems WAY fucking easier than being a passable/entry level melodic singer that can be taken seriously.
I mean, I am willing to concede that there are different styles of growling that one may prefer over others (even I have some preference), but aside from random people who just completely suck and lack vocal endurance (note: NOT lack of musical ability), it just seems so much easier to "get by" as a growler.
