Capercaillie does this, it's Celtic folk originally composed so that anyone could sing it with their own word-sounding nonsense
>>
>>54425856
any grindcore or power-violence band.

just don't check the lyrics

Here come the memes....

Dance Gavin Dance's harsh vocalist Jon Mess does this.

He claims to use his voice as an instrument, and with phonetics and such, creates cool rhythmic patterns and such.

>>54425924
No that is not what im looking for and it matters.

Well, I dont know if those words dont actually mean anything but I know I dont like their sound.

Lisa Gerrard from Dead Can Dance sings in glossolalia, and occasionally Brian too, the other guy in the band. Any DCD song she sings is mostly gibberish. Samples:

magma invented their own language and wrote lyrics in it
sigur ros did the same
this is a bit of a stretch but a lot of lil b's lyrics are allegedly completely improvised and there;s alot of stuff in there that doesn't quite make sense

a majority of 330,003 Crossdressers from Beyond the Rig Veda, with the exceptions of the songs: Civet's Tango, CCC, and Rookobay. They imitate and mock middle eastern music, but make it beautiful as well, just by saying nonsensical words that sound like they might be in Hindi or Arab

its pretty interesting
also my favorite album of all time

Sigur Ros does this; they sometimes do Icelandic but also do 'Hopelandic', which is basically just emotive expression with word sounds
>>
Anything like this plus rock/post rock blah i dont know music types..
Something that is medium loud but messy and harsh sounding. somehting more aggressive that does not sound like praying or like its some african/buddhist chant.
>>
>>54426205
pretty much all of their songs have made up words for lyrics with only a few exceptions like heaven or las vegas
>>
David Bowie's Warszawa has words, but they don't mean anything.
>>
>>54426949
Nah, most of their songs have actual words but the lyrics don't make much sense

Sigur Ros albums in Hopelandic or Vonlenska. It's a made up language that uses melody and rhythm to make meaning, so there aren't really words in it.

i think cocteau twins were the first band for real to have vocals that meant nothing and were purposefully obscured
