2Oliver Sykes - Bring Me the Horizon

You're kidding right? He sounds like a woman giving birth. - IronSabbathPriest

Singer from my favourite band, and he can scream like a madman!

Way more passion in his voice than lots of other on this list including#1.

He can successfully scream through anger, pain and pure emotion, fantastic vocalist in all areas

5Phil Bozeman - Whitechapel

HAVE YOU HEARD HIM LIVE THOUGH. LISTEN TO HIS LIVE VERSION OF UNANSWERED BY SUICIDE SILENCE AND PREPARE YOUR OVARIES FOR EXPLOSION AT THE WOMAN-IMPREGNATING GUTTURAL BELLOW BELCHED FROM THE JOWLS OF SATAN - Clad_In_Shadows

6Adam Warren - Oceano
7Eddie Hermida - All Shall Perish
8Jonny Davy - Job for a Cowboy
9Jake 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 ^^
ABR! M/

10M. Shadows - Avenged SevenfoldMatthew Charles Sanders, better known by his stage name M. Shadows, is an American musician, best known as the lead vocalist, songwriter and founding member of the American heavy metal band 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.

11Matthew Tuck - Bullet for My ValentineMatthew "Matt" Tuck is a Welsh musician. He is the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist in the Welsh heavy metal band 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

Matt tuck should be in the 1st place his screams are sick listen to Scream Aim Fire

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/

15Corey TaylorCorey Todd Taylor was born in December 8, 1973. He is an American musician, author, and actor best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the Nu-metal band Slipknot and hard rock/alternative metal band Stone Sour.

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.
