Differents postures of the left hand on electric guitar, please help me !

Hello Guys, I started to see Pebber Brown's videos on youtube few weeks ago,and I realized that he has a video when he explain to the young guitarists to play with your left hand posture like the classical guitar, well, I am a begginer of this wonderful world of popular music in electric guitar, what is the difference between some styles?, I mean,If you are an slide or blues guitarist , play some fast lick in blues and need to bend some string, most of these musicians play bends with the thumb throughout the back of the mastil or neck , in others I saw that when is a Metal guitarist most of these people play with the left hand posture like the classical guitar and still make bends with the same left hand posture.Please, I really appreciate is someone in this forum can help me to understand, What is the correct posture of the left hand on electric guitar?

classical form is default and thumb over neck is fine for two note per string pentatonics (it doesnt really matter for pentatonic)...I have heard pebber basically say this a ton of times in different videos.

Classical position is the preferred position. However, if you need to do string bends or vibrato, thumb over the neck is acceptable for this.
