You might have a point.   Either that or it appeals to adolescents and young adults suffering 'angst'.  

Despite the exposure, Steven Wilson never used Death Growls in Porcupine Tree's songs.   He would achieve a somewhat similar effect using guitars but that rarely lasted more than a few measures in a fashion reminiscent of similar effects in classical music.

Just received Blackwater Park, a 'death meal' album put out by Swedish band Opeth in 2002.


Odd.  This is my first time listening to Death Growls.  Read about it.  Not sure that this is my cuppa tea....  

I already have two other albums by Opeth that I quite enjoy:  Damnation and Pale Communion.  No Death Growls and less heavy.   A little like Focus or leaning in the direction of Camel?
