He uses growling And high pitched yell screams he doesn't growl very well the are quite hollow

Absolutely stunning Preformences, Especialy in "The murderer" Hymn for the Shameless" and "The Lover"

23 Chris Fronzak (Attila)

Not the best but definitely awesome.

24 Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder) Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder)

Trevor should be in the top 5. One of the few vocalist who has truly mastered the art of screaming. Live sounds just like studio, and he's never caught out of breath. A sign of a good vocalist is clear diction, Trevor has this.

Trevor's highs are awesome, and the lows are brutal! It sends shivers down my spine.

Best high and low combo out there.

His range is literally from the lowest gutturals up to nearly the highs of Trevor Strnad of The Black Dahlia Murder. Completely flawless technique covering every style and key point of metal vocals.

He's amazing in studio and live he sounds just as good which is hard to do in their style of music - stone5206

His lows are almost guttural and his highs blow away my ears. Also he has the mos amazing pig squeals ever.

28 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.

Why the hell is kyo in 18th he should be on the top 10, he has amazing screams, growls, shrieks and an amazing voice

I don't think any vocal can really compare with how Kyo's ability. Period.

His screams are clearly the best!
Ranging from low growls to high pitched screams, he deserves to be number 1!

29 Adam Warren (Oceano)

Adam has amazing shouts. His growls and screams are unbelievable, too! He puts diversity in Death Metal/Deathcore. Completely amazing! Rock on Oceano!

30 Randy Blythe (Lamb of God) Randy Blythe (Lamb of God) David Randall "Randy" Blythe is the vocalist and lyricist of American heavy metal band Lamb of God and side-project band Halo of Locusts.

Rnady sure have a golden unique voice, mixing all different vocal techniques that are so hard to master, and he has amazing highs and astonishing lows! Rnady sure is the best for me

I think Randy blythe is have a perfect voice, randy's scream, growl is really extreme and I think there is not again vocalis like randy m/

31 Travis Ryan (Cattle Decapitation) Travis Ryan (Cattle Decapitation) Travis Ryan Collins, who goes by the stage name Travis Ryan, is an American musician known for being the vocalist of the Deathgrind band Cattle Decapitation.

It's a wonder how vocalists who don't even scream much, or have a very generic scream are counted as the best. In truth, 99% of them can't perform as well live as they do in-studio, especially not Alex Koehler. Most of those vocalists sound the exact same or just never scream. Travis Ryan has used a unique style to accompany his gutturals and blood-curdling high screams. He also has his melodic screams that sound like he's singing. Place that with his lyrics - which are well thought out and hold meaning along with the intensity - and he makes one of the most solid vocalists to date. Screaming like everyone else only gets you so far; you also have to bring something new along with a fresh take (or at least not a rehash) on lyrical content.

Travis Ryan is the best no doubt. He has awesome lows and theses melodic high screams as if he is singing while screaming. Yea kyo from dir en grey can sing and has awesome screams he has the ultimate combo but this is scream vocals and travis is clearly better at that.

Seriously have none of you listened to CD? Travis Ryan has insanely guttural low with his own brand of high pitched screams and can do much more than half the people on this list. He should be in the top 3 at least

He should be on top 10. He has the craziest vocal ever! He's so underrated

32 Jeremy McKinnon (A Day to Remember)

Jeremy is one of the few vocalists that I feel is able to replicate both his screams and clean vocals live, and he gives a great and highly energetic live performance.

Jeremy is a mix of ML and Randy Blythe with amazing clean vocals as well

34 George Pettit (Alexisonfire)

His screams are great live and in studio, plus they match Dallas' and Wade's vocals perfectly.

He is ten times more consistent than most of the people at the top of the list not to mention a better sound

Yeah, I defenetly sure he should be in top 5, there won't be anyone screaming like him, in his first 2 albums

35 Chrigel Glanzmann

Chrigel is by far one of the top 10 screamers currently to date. His growls are outstanding - he can whisper, high scream and make you want to go to war feeling confident you'll win the war. Plus he actually sings about stuff worth hearing. His lyrics are epically historical and so are the topics his songs are based on (Celtic, Gaulia and those who the Roman Empire tried to extinct)
