Well, calling them cookie monster vocals is usually what people who haven't heard more than five death metal albums use to describe them. It's probably more to do with the bands you've heard than the vocal style itself, I wager. If you're on this site, chance are you've heard music or sounds that are a lot harder to get into than a guttural vocal style.

Yeah its a personal thing and to my ears a band with super cool ideas such as Ahab is shot right in the foot by those vocals. Warning on the other hand has decided to sing normally and I dig it. Another band with just great tunes and atmosphere, Moss, again really hurt themselves to my ears with the vocals.
We're all different and where some people would hate Magma, Univers Zero, Ornette Coleman, Acid Mothers Temple or Keiji Haino, I love 'em but understand why someone may not. For me and for a reason I can't quite put my finger on those "death metal vokills" lose me.
