Best Screamers


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Spencer Chamberlain (Underoath)

He has incredible screams, I think he should at least get into the top 20.

Spencer should have been WAY higher than a lot of these guys. He's better than Oliver Sykes

Specter is an amazing screamer. He blows my mind at his ability. The number one best.

22 Chris Roetter (Like Moths to Flames)
23 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!

Should be in at least the top 5

24 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.

Laugh out loud axl has never screamed in anything. His voice is really annoying and whiny too.

He sucks

Screams like a llitte girl :D

You guys are just not listening,i've heard all those dudes,but St.pete FL.93 screamed and did it with his voice I've still yet to hear anyone come close.I think you judge dude cause he's been a fick.Hr with l LP out scream any of those singers in his prime.

27 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.

28 Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan)

This guy has a fantastic voice. He dose many different screams, and he can also sing very well. His voice goes fantastically with the incredibly harsh sounding and chaotic guitars and drums of The Dillinger Escape Plan. He does fantastic live performances, and he also did guest vocals on the song "The Feast" by Genghis Tron. (another fantastic band if you've never heard them before)

Listen to the song "Farewell, Mona Lisa" and try to tell me that I'm wrong.

29 Tommy Rogers (Between the Buried and Me)

He is hands-down the artist who made me fall in love with the vocal style, and all genres which use it. His performance live is impeccable, and only doesn't sound exactly like the albums' versions due to him typically adding layers of his own voice to enhance the experience.

Most of the other so called "screamers on this list don't even scream anymore. Tommy outshines most everyone else on this list but 26 really? Some people just don't know good screamers or music for that matter

His screams live are just as fantastic as his studio ones. He screams almost effortlessly and just sounds amazing. Who wouldn't put him in at least the top 10? Also his normal vocals are incredible too.

This guy sounds like a pitch shifted banshee when he screams. In a good way. Plus his regular singing is beautiful too.

30 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.

31 Joe Nurre (Shaded Enmity)
32 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

33 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!

34 Chuck Schuldiner Chuck Schuldiner Charles Michael "Chuck" Schuldiner was an American singer, songwriter, and guitarist, best known as the founder and vocalist, guitarist and bassist of the American heavy metal band Death. He is considered the most influential figure in Death Metal, with some publications referring to Chuck as the "Godfather more.

The creator of Death Metal and great Screaming, the best ever, him, chris barnes, phil anselmo, marilyn manson and Randy Blythe

Why chuck is so undarrated? Are u kidding me? He has been probably the best screamer ever... Just listen to "the sounds of perseverance", one of the best death metal (I would add melodic death) album of the metal... You guys have strange tastes!

35 Joe Duplantier (Gojira) Joe Duplantier (Gojira) Joseph "Joe" Duplantier is a French musician best known as the guitarist and vocalist of metal band Gojira.
36 Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder) 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.

39 Tom Araya (Slayer) Tom Araya (Slayer) Tomás Enrique "Tom" Araya Díaz is a Chilean American musician, best known as the bassist and vocalist of the American thrash metal band Slayer.
40 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.
