They might be shocking and controversial if they used clean vocals.

We get it you're trying to be controversial and shocking. The only problem is though they're not at all. What they write about isn't anything I haven't seen in some cheesy horror movie before and that's all their lyrics are is cheesy horror. I've seen them live before and I didn't feel this whole "musical brutality" they're supposed to have all the time. I was paying attention to and trying to give them a chance but I felt nothing at all.
So what if their lyrics are all the same, how many rock/metal songs are about war or social injustice or death or partying or rock n roll, some people are fascinated by gore and the visceral side of nature, let them exploit it explore it and enjoy it, while you can go cry over a song about a war.

"Laying low in a blood filled trench" vs. "Getting blown by a blood sucking wench", its all good

You know, I can understand death vocals just fine. I don't understand how you can say the lyrics are impossible to understand, unless you don't actually listen to the music at all...

I don't know, I gotta disagree. I guess it's just because of my lack of exposure, but I have massive trouble understanding most death vocals, with only a few exceptions. As I said - it probably has more to do with the fact that I never listen to them than anything else.

I think it is lack of exposure. Back in the day I couldn't understand death metal at all. Now, I can understand Anaal Nathrakh.

When it comes to death vocals there are only very few I can't understand now. Most notably Barnes-era Cannibal Corpse and Pig Destroyer.
