Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Interesting question. The singing is practically the same for all bands in this genre (called mathcore). Wikipedia lists Post-hardcore, Extreme metal, Crossover-thrash, Progressive metal and Jazz fusion as the stylistic origins, most of which can be traced back further to punk and heavy metal (the two main influences of Napalm death).

The earliest song that is shouted more then sung would probably be "Paranoid" by Black Sabbath (1970):

Mathcore--it makes perfect sense!  For some reason when I read that I got a sudden image of Migeru and Jake S throwing themselves against the walls and the hordes in a frenzy of fiendishly complicated rhythms based on even more fiendishly complicated mathematical structures.
