That is a pretty damn stupid question. And i'd say over 90% of Opeth's vocals are growls...

The same way anyone does? By shaping it gradually through practice and being able to harness it while being articulate. And if you don't like his clean vocals, you must be tonedeaf.

Then he wouldn't have said, "I really wish he would growl a lot more in his music" because he doesn't growl at all on that album.

Mikael's growls are definitely my favorite because they never overshadow the music. When I first heard about Opeth about 3 years ago and how the singer could growl and sing I figured that he probably was good at one and maybe not so good at the other. Well, I was wrong.

I think his growls with Bloodbath were weaker than even Orchid and Morningrise. Peter was a better vocalist for Bloodbath, and he is nothing in vocal comparison.

Yeah those Bloodbath vocals were pretty impressive. The ones for Katatonia aren't really anything to talk about though.

I think his clean vocals are getting alot better than his growl. On Ghost Reveries I actually like hearing him sing better.

I think his growls on Katatonia Brave Murder Day are some of his best, but generally, I think his clean singing voice is better.

You close the back of your throat more to produce the great trebley hiss.
