Top Ten Metal Screamers
The Contenders: Page 2
Although this band is not well known, this screamer is easily a top contender. He has the range and the power as well as the ability to improvise with his voice as shown on the song "Defeat the Beat." (Other great songs include Crossover and Stray in Chaos.) He hits the highs and lows like an angel (or demon more-like). The best part is how easy it is to tell that he loves what he does just through the music he produces. Fantastic screamer, fantastic band.V 1 Comment
There's just something special about his screams...
One of the few on this list that is actually in a metal band.
Why is this here
This list is BEST screamers, not most popular. While Spencer isn't my favorite, I adore his harsh vocals. They hold so much power. Also his cleans are that of Icarus, I mean, he can hit notes higher than Haley Williams...
Stand by for exciter! Damn, Halford brought us some high notes over the years and still can sing those every concert. Come on, do I need to talk about the guy who performed Painkiller...he's the metal god and we all know it. And he's such a nice guy that usually he lets the crowd sing Breaking the Law in his place. Yeah, that's how nice he is to his fans.
56? Listen to songs on Stained Class, Defenders, and Painkiller. He was and still is the best screecher there is.
Rob Halford and Ian Gillan should be in the top 10, if not top 3 because they started it all. - Metal_Treasure
Well... Mr. Halford can sing the most soft tunes and the most powerfall harmonies in metal. Nevertheless when it comes to high pitch screaming (Painkiller, All Guns Blazing, Screaming for Vengeance, Exciter, Nostradamus, Judas Rising among many others) or even death metal growls (Whals of Valhalla, Metal Gods live) he can really scare you to death.
One of the best screamers in my opinion, and his clean vocal are excellent, too!
But I don't think he screams. - Th3Zm0nst3r
I love Joel birch, but for the record Nicholas Matthews is better.
Simply put his screams are godly.
His extremely high-pitched screams as well as very powerful growls are amazing
He's not a scream-style singer but he screams pretty often and his screams are awesome - full of emotion, powerful, melodic and always spot on. The scream to 'Fiddler on the Green' is 10-11 sec long and is brilliantly crafted. He did some screams for other bands as a guest musician, which means he's really good. He screams even more live, and maybe even better - I guess the crowd inspires him.
Demons & Wizards - My Last Sunrise, Fiddler on the Green, Poor Man's Crusade;
Blind Guardian - The Last Candle, This Will Never End, Bright Eyes. - Metal_Treasure
I love his skills, specially on studio. Here's the guy who records 1000 voices for every song, creating vocal layers so dense, beautiful and high that will blow your mind.
Check Mirror Mirror, Bright Eyes and Valhalla.
This guy should be number 1! Why is he so low?
Why is the best so damn low?
The Master. Hands down. 'Child In Time' is legendary.
He was the first metal screamer and the first singer who became famous for his screams so he should be #1. - Metal_Treasure
His intro scream to 'Don't Bring Me Down' by Northern Kings is epic.
He loves screaming and does that on almost every song. - Metal_Treasure
