It's not very good for extreme metal I agree, but I think that argument could be made for all romance languages though. Nevertheless I think it works very well in more serene forms of music such as Alcest or low-fi acoustic stuff.

One of the reasons I can't fathom listening to Alcest is due to the French singing. Same in ADX, which is a totally different type of sound.

I agree that it's a good language for the more "romantic" types of metal, but I actually love some "romantic" metal and the vocals just ruin it for me. I mean, I can't literally enjoy any kind of music with French singing, metal or not. This in turn makes me lose some decent bands from specific scenes that I'd otherwise enjoy.

Hmm... Are you a racist then? There's no judgment there, it's just the only thing that seems to make sense.

Basque language suits perfectly well to metal, specially to black metal, is not as hard as russian or german but it has its strenght.

Aiumeen Basoa or Numen arre excellent examples.

Russian, german, norwegian or any slavic language suits also to pagan/black metal.

Wait, what? Racist?! ME??? :scratch:

I said it a few times, I just don't like the phonetics of the language. I don't like the way singers pronounce words in that language. I don't like the way it sounds, if you will. How does that make me a racist of all things?! :nono:

So fist off SORRY for the thread necromancy. I gather it's still better than opening a new thread for a subject that exists already.

Lately I have been interested in the Welsh language, so I did a little research. I went through the 218 registered Wales bands in MA, and looked at each one of them to see if they had lyrics in Welsh. The summary is thus:

Wenfflam and Y Diawled (mentioned early on this thread) have lyrics mostly or completely in Welsh.
The following bands have some (often just a few) songs in Welsh:
  • Nierty
  • Avagddu
  • Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard
  • Ogoneddus Anifail
  • Hiraeth

Here is a Youtube playlist of Wenfflam and Y Diawled songs (mostly heavy metal and rock). Disclaimer: obviously, I do not own these songs so the playlist can be regarded as a spawn of stinky bootlegged evil only as abhorrent as the original Youtube uploads themselves.

And here is a Google doc with the detailed "reseach" results.

PS: I really enjoyed Avagddu although their lyrics are mostly in English.
PPS: I know there are regions in South America where Welsh is spoken, I did not check for those places.
