Got a "music" question ...

I have a problem, I really like "black metal" musically (well, and thematically), but nearly every band in the genre (from what I've heard poking around in Amazon's 30-second clips) is totally interchangeable when it comes to vocals ... varying between "Bealzebub with a throat infection", "squeal like a piggy" and "I'm singing the lyrics despite somebody ripping out my prostate via my anus" styles.

I suspect the reason that I like Dimmu Borgir's Death Cult Armageddon is that the vocal histrionics are kept to a minimum on it ... unfortunately, in listening to clips from some of their other albums they seem less restrained on most of them. I also like the infrequent bits of Cradle of Filth when the gal is singing and the two male voices shut the fuck up, but that's little snippets here and there, and in general they're pretty much unlistenable.

What I'm looking for is a "black/death metal" band that is musically like Dimmu Borgir or Cradle of Filth, but forgoes the freakshow vocals ... perhaps something more like Type O Negative's Peter Steele on the mic.

It would really help me when I'm in "one of my moods" to be able to sink into violent thrashing nihilism that wasn't constantly making me want to hit the singer in the mouth with a 2x4!

Any suggestions?
