The Contenders: Page 3
They have the sexiest guitar riffs ever and a hellofa screamer to support it.
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!V 4 Comments
How the hell is she at 189? She is one of, if not, the best female screamer. Period.V 1 Comment
How is this guy not even on here? He should be top five.
Heck yeahs. :) Don't get me wrong, I love stuff like Asking Alexandria, BVB, and ADTR, but Bon Scott was the original. Not only that, but his scream is not only aggressive, but melodic and beautiful at the same time.V 1 Comment
Tim Mcilrath, very much an underrated screamer. Tim goes hard, but he has severely damaged his voice from his early years where he screamed with more force than any other screamer at the time. His screames range from those found in 'Gethsemane' to 'Dancing For Rain' to 'Injection' to 'Entertainment'. All those examples showcase his vocal intensity. I have yet to hear other screamers that weren't either annoying, or sounded like the cookie monster. Tim in my opinion, has the perfect scream because it's emotional and releases a lot of tension. In his live shows he has let out some screams I can only imagine were some of the greatest screams ever performed by any vocalist. In Rock am Ring 2010, right before he starts State Of The Union, he lets out the most powerful and soaring scream I have ever heard.
His vocal technique has improved a lot and nowadays he takes it a lot easier on his voice. But he can still deliver one hell of a vocal, as shown in his Rock Werchter 2015 ...more
Rise Against has so many varying styles that they can play, and all of them sound great. Tim can deliver smooth vocals, but his screaming is top notch. If you really want to hear him scream, listen to some of his songs that he sang from The Killing Tree, his side project during the late 90's and early 2000s.
Lead singer of Rise Against, his vocals vary from soft and smooth, to harsh screams. He is undoubtedly one of the best singers in Music. Examples include "State of The Union" and "Dead Ringer".
Insanely talented. Doesn't scream so much anymore though.V 3 Comments
If you have ever seen the live version of "Nymphetamine" at the Rock AM ring 2006. He has the lowest and the highest screams I've ever heard! I think he's the best screamer this world has ever seen! Check that video out! I suggest that you listen to the entire video and then decide which is the best screamer!
The Filth scream is Iconic in its genre. To be honest there are some great vocalists on this list but seriously, have any of you people ever listened to cradle of filth? As far as pure screaming goes he's the godfather. Id say the only reason he's not higher up the list is because less people know about him.
Listen to the original version of "summer dying fast" the first scream there defines why Dani Filth is simply the best at screaming
Way better then august burns redV 7 Comments
This is ridiculous. Matt Heafy has one of the most unique metal voices I've ever hear and not even a huge fan. People gotta stop voting for their favorite bands, look at the topic of the list. Please.V 2 Comments
A very clean screamer that most people can enjoy. Similar to Chester. People need to vote on talent, not just their favorite band
He needs to be placed somewhere higher although he is not screaming so much on the new album, he's still able to.
Nonsense! Jared supposed to be in the Top Ten list!
Number 21? You people have gone nuts! Have you heard Jared scream? He's classic and unique.V 1 Comment
Marilyn Manson you just can't beat this mans scream especially live its just so natural, and elevating, and so unrelenting, with fluent and plain up in your face style that's gonna win every time plain and simple
This is guy has the best Scream Ever, I simply love it, I don't why this guy, Chris Barnes and Chuck Schuldiner are not up there, they are/were simply Legends
Great screams in just the right places along with his cleans and whispery-like vocals and chants!
Best scream I ever heard from himV 2 Comments
Of mice and men was one of the first screamo bands I've ever listened to and by far is my favorite band
Definitely better than a lot of the vocalists ahead of him on this list. More of a popularity contest if you ask me! Ivan has a real outstanding kind of voice. Its rich, deep, and the epitome of masculinity!
Ivan has talent in screaming! He should be at least up there on top 10 - 20 range
Amazing vocal range, AND scream range. One of my favorite baritones
Very powerful sinning and screaming (if it can called it)V 3 Comments
May be a good screamer, but I don't like his singing for screaming. I like his slow paced vocals more. - zxmV 1 Comment
I'm sorry but I guess most you guys vote for the bands what are most popular because seriously chester bennington really ok danny worsnop amazing but jesse is unbelievable screamer and should be in the top ten
How are all these other screamers (with the exception of a few) above the godfather of metalcore himself? Listen to Alive or Just Breathing and tell me this mans screams are not godly.
Jesse needs to be a lot higher on this list. His screams are epic compared to some of the people who are higher than him right now.
Listen to Vide Infra, and tell me that Jesse is NOT the best screamer!V 1 Comment
Nobody can scream like Brian! Listen to the early stuff of Brian and you know what I mean. Rock And Roll Ain't Noise Pollution!
Brian Johnson brought screaming to the mainstream. Should be #1
He puts so much soul into his screaming that its his art and he is the master
