Best Scream-Style Vocalists


The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Chris Motionless (Motionless in White)

His style is the ultimate. Every screamer has their flaws...but this guy seriously doesn't have any! He's INSANE

Amazing in every way. Seriously one of the best musicians there is today.

43Phil Anselmo (Pantera)Philip Hansen "Phil" Anselmo is an American musician who is best known as the former lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Pantera. He currently is the vocalist of heavy metal bands Down and Superjoint Ritual.
44Austin Carlile

What is Andy Biersack doing on this list? Anyway, Austin really deserves his spot in the top 5! He doesn't do a lot of lows in OMAM but in Someday Came Suddenly you'll hear he can do lows!

He has the best fry screams I have ever heard

Austin should be in the top 5 instead of Alex Koehler I just listened to him it sounds like it has had so much editing

Move this dude up he belongs In the top 10!

45Davey Havok (AFI)

Havok's singing and versatile screaming style have influenced many (as well as several of the competition on here). Give "Sing The Sorrow" a listen, and you will understand more credit is due.

46Alex Varkatzas (Atreyu)

In my opinion Alex one of the best metalcore vocalists in the history of metalcore. I really liked his screaming in the suicide notes album.

Alex Varkatzas' screaming compliments Brandon Saller's vocals in most of atreyu's songs, if you haven't given them a listen, you have to

47Winston McCall (Parkway Drive)

The very best! Screams his throat out in romance is dead!

Probably the best vocalist I have ever heard, End of.

His vocals add a deep roar to melodic metalcore

48Alex "Terrible" (Slaughter to Prevail)

Actually does good vocal unlike the majority of this list

50Aaron Matts (Betraying the Martyrs)

By far the best on low growls

51Matthew Tuck (Bullet for My Valentine)Matthew "Matt" Tuck is a Welsh musician. He is the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist in the Welsh heavy metal band Bullet for My Valentine.
52Dave Stephens (We Came as Romans)

Not only does Dave sound amazing on recording but he kills it live!

53Edward Butcher (I Killed The Prom Queen)

I've seen IKTPQ live and I must say that he is even better live. If you don't listen to them you totally should.

54Shane Told (Silverstein)

Great band, if you haven't heard them, you should give them a listen

55Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters)David Eric "Dave" Grohl is an American rock musician, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer. He is best known as the drummer for the grunge band Nirvana and the vocalist/guitarist for the alternative rock band Foo Fighters.

Its such and unbeleivable scream! Monkey wrench, wind up, weenie beenie, breakout, all my life, let it die, walk, white limo... !

56Caleb Shomo (Attack Attack/Beartooth)

He's amazing. Alex Koehler, Oli Sykes, and Travis Ryan are all some of my favorites, but no one tops Caleb.

57Brandon Hoover (Crown the Empire)

This guy has a great scream. He can growl and really puts the emotion into his music.

Brandon Hoover is a guitarist for Crown The Empire. He doesn't scream or growl. Dave Escamilla screams for them. Andy Leo sings and sometimes screams for them.

58Matty Mullins (Memphis May Fire)

Badass screams and sick clean vocals! The best in the business boys

59Dylan Richter (For the Fallen Dreams)

This guys a lot better than some of the other people above... Cough cough black veil brides

60Jack White (The White Stripes)

Although most of his screaming is done live.. Jack white creates this unique screech that makes the hair on the back of my neck stick up
