Best Screamers


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Spencer Sotelo (Periphery)

Amazing screaming and amazing, gritty, loud, intense clean vocals that can blow almost everyone else on this list out of the water. - BasseCat

He gets better every time see him in concert. He can scream with the best of them while also outsinging most.

82 Bert Mccracken (The Used)

Such a talented screamer, especially on all their old stuff. They were raw and his transitions of singing to screaming just get you pumped, Definitely should be higher up there.

I'm a huge fan of music and he is one of my favorite singers and is without a doubt the best screamer I have ever heard. Listen to the self titled album

Listen to a box of sharp objects live from their dvd maybe memories or say days ago

My hero!

83 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'.

Love minami's scream voice

Just go listen to their "Just Moments in Time" and you'll all understand

85 Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance) Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance) Gerard Arthur Way is an American singer, songwriter, musician, and comic book writer who was the lead vocalist and co-founder of the American alternative rock band My Chemical Romance from its formation in September 2001 until its split in March 2013. His debut solo album Hesitant Alien was released more.

What's even more unique about Gerard from all these other people is that he is really versatile and has awesome screams yet can switch back and forth from screaming to singing beautifully

Gerard way has tons of talent. His screams are so amazing and you can clearly hear the lyrics with out having to look them up. He also is really good at switching between screaming and singing beautifully.

Even though Gerard doesn't scream in all of his songs, when he does it's amazing. He has amazing vocals and screaming and will always be one of my favorite singers

He is just so pretty... and good at singing and screaming

86 Serj Kravchenko (Make Me Famous)
87 Chris "Fronz" Fronzak (Attila)
88 Robb Flynn (Machine Head) Robb Flynn (Machine Head)
89 Brian Fair (Shadows Fall)

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

90 Antti Hyyrynen (Stam1na)
91 Shagrath (Dimmu Borgir)
92 Jayy Von Monroe (Blood On The Dance Floor) Jayy Von Monroe (Blood On The Dance Floor) Jeremy Brian, better known by his stage names Jayy von Monroe and JayyVon, is an American singer-songwriter and rapper born on August 17, 1991. He is best known for his work as one half of the scene duo Blood on the Dance Floor. more.

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


93 Jon Mess (Dance Gavin Dance)

Jesus, I cannot believe that Ronnie Radke is in the top 20. Jon Mess is one of the best screamers out there. So much better than Radke.

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

94 Bertrand Poncet (Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!)

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.

95 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.
96 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

97 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

What the hell is Halford doing at #93? He should be at the very least in top 3. - kk2001

Why Judas Priest is underrated everywhere?! - ShahryRKnoT

98 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

Dave Escamilla is quite possibly one of the greatest screamers,
Some examples of his greatest screaming is
1. Voices
2.Johnny Trilogy]
3.Breaking Point

99 Chino Moreno (Deftones) Chino Moreno (Deftones) Chino Moreno is an American musician. He is best known as the lead vocalist and contributing guitarist of Deftones.

I don't understand why this isn't on the list. Chino is one of the better screamers in all music, and one of the best musicians of the past 20 years. He deserves to be up at the top with Chester Bennington, and far, far above any of the scenecore artists people have voted up at the top. Chester and Chino are two of the best screamers and I'm surprised no one added Chino before now!

I absolutely think Chino should be higher up like top 10 at least. Many of the singers in the top are metalcore singers (not Chester, love Chester) and maybe haven't heard much of Deftones and Chinos his distinctive scream.

Chino should be number 1 his scream is perfect

His inhale screams are legendary
