3Orion Stephens - In Dying Arms
4Alex Koehler - Chelsea Grin

Alex Koehler must be at 3..

5Phil Bozeman - Whitechapel
6Adam Warren - Oceano
7Eddie Hermida - All Shall Perish
8Jake Luhrs - August Burns Red

Hee should be higher on the list

Jake is clearly the best screamer I ever heard! He's able to combine very deep shouts and highscreams like no one else! Abr was the first metalcore band I absolutely fell in love with. Indonesia is clearly my favourite song of all time and it's the first one I actually screamed to ^^

9Jonny Davy - Job for a Cowboy
10Matthew Tuck - Bullet for My Valentine

Look, I really like Matt and Bullet for My Valentine, but reality is that Matt doesn't scream. Bassist screams in this band.

Great screamer. Just gives me chills

The Newcomers

?Keisuke Minami - FaLiLV

Although this band is not well known, this screamer is easily a top contender. He has the range and the power as well as the ability to improvise with his voice as shown on the song "Defeat the Beat." (Other great songs include Crossover and Stray in Chaos.) He hits the highs and lows like an angel (or demon more-like). The best part is how easy it is to tell that he loves what he does just through the music he produces. Fantastic screamer, fantastic band.

The Contenders

11M. Shadows - Avenged Sevenfold

Matt just has something that makes his screams so pure. They give you so much energy if you hear them live, and that makes him the best screamer of our current area for me.

Amazing. That's all I have to say

12Geoffrey Ficco - The Faceless
13Jimmie Strimell - Dead By April

What!... Jimmie Strimell deserves the number one spot and I bet nobody's better than him. His screaming is so awesome that it makes you feel alive every time you listen to it. Just listen to the song 'Real and True' by Dead by April and you'll know what real screaming is all about. By the way his clean singing rocks, he's not only the best screamer, he is also the best singer. I feel so bad he's not in Dead by April anymore, the band still rocks, but without Jimmie it's incomplete. And at last I wanna say thanks to Jimmie Strimell for such great songs that changed my life, I will always see you as a good friend. Everyone hail Jimmie Strimell!

Simply "Number 1"! He has got the harshest, rawest screaming/growl I've ever heard, just check him out live (especially on "Dreaming"). His screaming is just incomparable, better than Mitch Lucker and many for sure, can't understand why he's no. 1... I'm tired of seeing people judge by the popularity! By the way, songs like "More Than Yesterday" by Dead by April are perfect examples to show you the amazing talent Jimmie Strimell has. Not only in Dead by April you get to hear the awesome growl, but also in bands like Nightrage (2007 album), DeathDestruction and Ends With A Bullet, I guess you can't deny that he's the most EPIC screamer after listening those. No special effects or editing, just REAL screaming! Jimmie Strimell m/

Best metal screamer ever

14Philip Labonte - All That Remains

Any band that makes me memorize every vocal and every scream has my vote no matter what

Phil's an amazing vocalist with a great technical ability!

15Austin Carlile - Of Mice & Men

Holds his screams longer than anyone. Truly awesome

Must be at top 5 screamers! Austine is awesome!

Are you serious... Austin Carlile is the best screamer on this list sure oli sikes is a good screamer but nobody comes close to Austin I mean look and listen to all of the songs my understadings Ohioisonfire O. G loko second sebiring the list goes on.

16Corey Taylor

I'm not just saying this because they are popular, but Corey should easily be on the top ten. 99% of the metal screamers I here all sound too similar and only have one style. They either have a high pitched annoying scream or a low pitched scream where they aren't even pronouncing the words, and with both you can't even understand what they're saying. Corey has adjusted his scream with every album and they are all amazing and you can actually understand what he's saying.

Corey Taylor is the greatest screamer of all time. Hands down.

M. Shadows can't scream! But I'll give that he can sing but Corey can scream awesomely plus you can actually hear what his screams say unlike most of the people on here

He has a few good songs, but he sounds terrible live. - IronSabbathPriest

17Dani Filth - Cradle of Filth
18Tim Lambesis - As I Lay Dying

What a pity what happened, such a great vocalist and band and then... but I will never forget the brutal screams and the great influence this voice was to me. - Flav

19Petri Lindroos - Ensiferum

There's just something special about his screams...

One of the few on this list that is actually in a metal band.
