Black metal vocals is more acting than actual singing though, I was always able to scream for quite long without losing my voice as a child. Black metal vocals is simply acting it so to make it as torturous and suffer-like as possible. I'm more interested in applying the right effects to the vocals than actually screaming them, since I find that to be quite embaracing.

Death metal vocals would perhaps require more practicing.

"Acting"... well it applies for singers as Maniac or Attila (both from Mayhem), but when I hear such vocalists as Ihsahn from Emperor, the word "acting" doesn't comes to my mind.
Expression is better I think.

Well, it is essentially voice acting with an artistic touche, you are supposed to sound you are strapped to a torturing device, screaming in pain.

It may not be always about that theme, but the vocals keep sounding like that. I have very little interest in those cliché darkness Mayhem-esque black metal and instead prefer something more sophisticated, but the vocals remain as such, only better.

I'm not fond of Mayhem.
Emperor is my reference, but the vocals make me think more to power and hate.
Best example that comes to my mind is the begining of the song Nonus Aequilibrium :

Quote
I am unconquerable
In my worship
I am invincible
On my crusade

Too me, the best vocals are Mortuus Infradaemoni, Noctenity and Vinterriket. Emperor is not too my liking in any way.
