Best Screamers


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Chris "Fronz" Fronzak (Attila)
82 Brian Fair (Shadows Fall)

Come on, someone listen to this guys screams. he's better than Kurt Cobain at the very least.

83 Patrick Marquardt (Nomy)
84 Minami (Keisuke)

Amazing screamer, not only can he go high, but he does things with his voice I've never heard from any other screamer. Check out the song Crossover, it's a great example. He does some pretty crazy stuff in Defeat and Beat as well. The band does use autotune, so I'm unsure how he sounds with out (probably still sounds great) but the band uses it as a style, like an instrument, and Minami knows how to use it.

He is apart of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and should easily be number one if this band was actually wellknown in America. It's really sad that they aren't because, even if the electronica stuff isn't your 'cup of tea', this band is absolutely amazing due to the catchy tunes and of course, Minami's insane vocals!

Pretty unknown guy, but his vocals are incredibly powerful. Part of the Japanese synthcore band 'Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas'.

Dude is honestly amazing. His vocal range is insane. I didn't believe it was him screaming when I first gave them a listen. Them I saw them at warped tour.

87 Jon Mess (Dance Gavin Dance)

Jon mess has screams like no one else. He is so great at screaming and writing he deserves to be higher up on this list.

This guy perform screams at the perfect pitch & is just as good live! His writting style is inttersting, as he is random & has great syle. Easily #1

88 Howard Jones (Killswitch Engage, Devil You Know)

I think he made killswitch better and he is doing well on his own

89 Aaron Lewis (Staind) Aaron Lewis (Staind) Aaron Lewis is an American musician, who is the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist, and founding member of the rock group Staind, with whom he has released seven studio albums.
90 Ian Gillan (Deep Purple) Ian Gillan (Deep Purple) Ian Gillan is an English singer and songwriter. He originally found success as the lead singer and lyricist for Deep Purple, and the original singer on the rock opera concept album Jesus Christ Superstar by Andrew Lloyd Webber, where Gillan had the leading role (Jesus Christ).

The original high pitch screamer who set the standard for the metal scream. Check out child in time off made in Japan. Intense and painful the way metal screamin is supposed to be.

This list is sorted by popularity. Otherwise I don't see reasons that James Hetfield or Kurt Cobain could be better screamers than him. - zxm

#86? Haha, this guy invented the crafted scream. - Metal_Treasure

91 Jayy Von Monroe (Blood On The Dance Floor) Jayy Von Monroe (Blood On The Dance Floor)

I'm surprised that he isn't higher on the list, he's not the best, but 57th, really? He's more talented than some people realize. I guess most people haven't heard of him, or don't realize that it IS him.

He sounds just as good live, too, which is rare.

Just saying.

Scene kids should be banned from any kind of vote, political or otherwise. GO AWAY BOTDF. JUST GO AWAYY

92 Dave Grohl Dave Grohl David Eric "Dave" Grohl is an American rock musician, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer. He is best known as the drummer for the grunge band Nirvana and the vocalist/guitarist for the alternative rock band Foo Fighters.

Amazing, my parents introduced me to them as a baby and now I am 12 I still have a passionate love for the Foo Fighters and Nirvana

He gives all what his got in every single concert... One of the best rock voices nowadays

Besides beeing one the best drummers in the world, he is great frontman and he puts everything in every concert and gig.

93 Rob Halford (Judas Priest) Rob Halford (Judas Priest) Robert John Arthur "Rob" Halford is an English singer and songwriter, who is best known as the lead vocalist for the Grammy Award-winning heavy metal band Judas Priest and famed for his powerful wide ranging operatic voice.

Seriously! How has Rob Halford not been mentioned at all in this list?
Rob Halford is one of the greatest metal vocalists and his screams are phenomenal. Some of the most high pitched screams in metal music.

Rob Halford has very good high-pitch vocals and he is a very good screamer - zxm

Why Judas Priest is underrated everywhere?! - ShahryRKnoT

He fronted and/or founded numerous groups including Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Dio and Heaven & Hell. He is credited with popularizing the "metal horns" hand gesture more.
95 David Escamilla (Crown the Empire)

You got to be kidding me! Why is he this low even if he's not my favorite screamer he is good at it then some people higher then him

Such an underrated screamer because the band is still fairly new. But in my opinion he is definitely top 25 if not top 10

96 Maria Brink Maria Brink

If you listen to "blood" and "you're gonna listen" you'll agree that she needs to be in the top 20!

97 Lawrence Taylor (While She Sleeps)

Although he doesn't have a very high vocal range Lawrence Taylor deserves to be way higher on the list. The way his screams sound along with the heavy guitars and blast beats of the drums is just heavenly.

98 Hernan "Eddie" Hermida (All Shall Perish)

The fact that Eddie is so low makes me extremely unhappy his range is just insane and he makes even pig squeals sound good. Also Eddie is way better than Mitch ever was (not disrespecting I just think Eddie is better)

I don't much love his low pig squeals, but otherwise he is definitely in the top three... His high range is so epically brutal it gives me chills sometimes. The way he enunciates is about as sick as it gets too.

Great at screaming great pig squeals and great at growling
All Shall Perish/ Suicide Silence

Why is Eddie so low! He should easily be in the top ten!

99 Sean Harmanis (Make Them Suffer)

To see that Jayy Von Monroe from BOTDF makes me want to vomit. Listen to the song Neverbloom or Widower and tell me Jayy or whatever the hell is porn star sounding name is is better than Sean.

100 Minami (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas)

He is from a Japanese electronica screamo band, so most people don't know him, but he hits insanely high screams as well as the deeper rumbles. He can also do squeals. Listen to Crossover and you will hear a lot of what he can do. He also improvises a little in Defeat the Beat which is pretty amazing. He is an amazing screamer and deserves to be on this list. I hate how it's just the most well know bands that make it to the top because people who don't know screamers come on here and recognize the band so they vote for it. Just because the band is famous doesn't mean it's because they have the best screamer and doesn't mean they deserve to be the top of this list.

Minami is really good, at least in mine opinion.
