Best Screamers


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Chris Roetter (Like Moths to Flames)
22 Andrew Biersack (Black Veil Brides)

I cannot believe Andy is at place 32. Sure, he doesn't scream throughout his songs. But when he does, he blows everyone else out of the water. His solo screams are beyond excellent. His screaming live is BEAUTIFUL. He has no back-up. It's just him. I love andrew so much. His voice is breath-taking. He should be in the top 15 at least.

Few people can scream. Most people don't know the difference between screaming and shouting. Andrew screams with passion, and clearly. So you wont have to search for lyrics. Which you would have to do with an amateur screamer. + Andrew sings with a huge vocal range. My vote goes to Andy. (Andrew)

Andy is amazing! He is so talented, even if he doesn't scream through all of his songs he does sound pretty good, he is only 25 and has been screaming since he first started playing music! He was famous from an early age and that is really cool. I think he should be at least in the top 15!

Talented, good looking, the best singing voice, amazing screamer!
and for someone who can write amazing,touching and deep lyrics and just, he is amazing!

23 Benjamin Burnley (Breaking Benjamin) Benjamin Burnley (Breaking Benjamin) Benjamin Jackson Burnley IV is an American musician, composer, and producer, best known as the founder and frontman of the American rock band Breaking Benjamin.

His screams aren't thin and weak or low and hidden, perfectly in between. And he screams at the right time, not for full choruses or songs.

26 Jared Warth (Blessthefall)

He's got some of the most intense screams I've heard. Along with Beau's cleans and the great backing music, Warth is just flat out amazing.

He is the bassist but provides Beau with awesome screams to sing over honestly this guy needs to get noticed more, he is so underrated - ReganKnowsBest

His screams are just so powerful. He should be higher up this list in my opinion. Then when Beau joins it's perfect.

27 Zach Johnson (I See Stars)

In my opinion, Zach has an amazing voice. Maybe it isn't as good as other voices from this top, but he deserves to be in a higher rank.

28 Layne Staley (Alice In Chains) Layne Staley (Alice In Chains) Layne Thomas Staley was an American musician who served as the lead singer and co-songwriter of the rock band Alice in Chains, which he founded with guitarist Jerry Cantrell in Seattle, Washington in 1987. Alice in Chains rose to international fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990s. more.

I say that layne staley was the best vocolist because no one could sing like him he was so unique in so many ways which made him so much better. I completely agree of what tom morello said when he said that he can scream like an angry angle

No one could scream like Layne. Tom Morello about Layne: "He sounded like an angry angel. "

All I can say is "Imatations are pale"... Even though Layne hasn't been given the credit he deserves, no one will be able to take away his god given talent to sing like and angry angel. RIP Layne - forever missed

29 Roger Daltrey (The Who) Roger Daltrey (The Who) Roger Harry Daltrey, is an English singer and actor. In a music career spanning more than 50 years, Daltrey came to prominence in the mid 1960s as the founder and lead singer of the English rock band The Who, which released fourteen singles that entered the Top 10 charts in the United Kingdom during more.

Can't believe I had to add this guy. You people don't know what screaming is until you've heard Roger Daltrey scream. The original screamer, and still the best.

30 Jonathan Davis (Korn) Jonathan Davis (Korn) Jonathan Howsmon Davis, also known as JD and JDevil, is an American musician best known as the leading vocalist and frontman of the nu metal band Korn.

Great singer... Though I've never heard him scream much. Also, where is Howard Jones?

He puts so much emotion into his screaming, his growls are awesome as well

What is that? JD is the best screamer. Listen to Good God, Shoots and Ladders, Blind and It's On!

31 Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder)

This list is so cancerous it gave me tumors. Anyways this dude is my inspiration to scream. Oli Sykes? Dude blew out his voice, yet is still in the top 10. Andy Biersack? Bad screams. Danny Worsnop? His screams make me wanna cut off my ears then drench them in gasoline and laugh while they burn. Trevor on the other hand is awesome, high, black metal- influenced screams, brutal lows, and everything in between. A singer with great technique, tone, and range.

This list is a complete joke. Like I was laughing the whole time scrolling down. All this is, is a popularity contest. I'd love to see AXL ROSE try to death growl the way Trevor can. What a crock.

There isn't a better screamer than Trevor. Just listen to some songs by BDM and you'll see. Watch them LIVE too - aspasiz

A real screamer.

33 Brian White (A Skylit Drive)
34 Tyler "Telle" Smith (The Word Alive)

Tyler is the second best screamer ever. And he's one of the best singers too. The way he can transition between singing and screaming is good too.

Amazing screamer, in my opinion. Brutal growls, epic screams, and perfect middles. Great vocalist, indeed. One of my favorites.

36 Kyo (Dir en grey) Kyo (Dir en grey) Kyo is a Japanese musician, poet and singer-songwriter. He is best known as the vocalist of the metal band Dir en grey. He has been with the band since its inception in 1997 and was formerly in La:Sadie's.

Lead vocalist of Visual Kei/Japanese Rock/Metal band Dir en Grey. Can scream REALLY HIGH, can growl REALLY DEEP, and has a very nice timbre when he does clean vocals, and he is doing it all with raw emotion, it's as if you also feel what he feels. He is classified as a low tenor but his overall vocal range spans into the whistle register.

He is the master of both false and fry screaming and has the largest vocal range out of anyone on the list especially the top ten. I feel this is all based on popularity not skill. Everyone would you please take the time to actually search and learn about screaming, you too would realise Kyo should be in the top ten..

What is wrong with this list, okay you guys think that your whining screamers can beat Kyo? , I would like to see anyone try intimating kyo I've have listened to many artist and never seen anyone with an amazing voice.

37 Alex Koehler (Chelsea Grin)

He has more range then anyone alive except the screamer from The Devil Wears Prada hands down the best vocalist in my opinion

How is Alex not in top ten, he has way more talent than a lot of the singers in the top ten, way more range and can scream very clear!

Alex has more talent chester whatever his name is

He is the scream

38 Micah Kinard (Oh, Sleeper)

They have the sexiest guitar riffs ever and a hellofa screamer to support it.

39 Stitch D (The Defiled)
40 Michael Barnes (RED)

Mike Barnes is an incredible screamer. In all his years of touring he's managed to never hurt his voice as bad as other artists, and owns the performances live. It's a shame to see "artists" as terrible as Oliver Sykes and Danny Worsnop in the top 5, and someone as amazing as Mike Barnes so low. Step down, scene kids, let some real artists take the spotlight!

Listen to songs like: breathe into me, Let Go, Wasting time, Death of me, Out from Under, Confession, Feed The Machine, The Outside, Release The Panic, Damage, and last but Not least: IF WE ONLY!

Michael Barnes puts them all to shame. Andy Biersack and Chester Bennington are terrible screamers compared to Michael. His singing voice is perfect already, and his screams are the icing on the cake. Plus, his band actually makes quality music, unlike mediocre, shallow bands like Linkin Park and Black Veil Brides.

Awesome band, awesome music. Probably my favorite band out of anything, and their vocalist has some of the best screams I've ever heard!
