Top Ten Metal Screamers

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Mats Leven

The swedish screamer, with a long list of albuns recorded in diferente bands. Mats sang for Malmsteen, Therion and others, Always delivering perfect drive and high notes. I'm such a fan of his voice that I just don't care where he sings, I just go and grab it, knowing it'll be nice. And he does covers too when he's like on vacation or something.

Check Malmsteen - Seventh Sign (LIVE! ); Sons of the Staves of Time (Therion DVD); Queensryche's Queen of the Reich cover

62 Carlos Zema

A brazillian guy who keeps going from band to band, Always singing great. He sang for Heaven's Guardian and Vougan in Brazil, did some gigs with Metal Mike, sang for Outworld and now he's in Immortal Guardian band. Better check him, this guy can sing both death metal screams and highest notes, which is definitely rare.

Check Heaven's Guardian - Killing Night; American Metalhead by Metal Mike (he totally kicks Sebastian Bach's girly voice); his singing in the streets with Immortal Guardian.

63 Geoff Tate - Queensrÿche Geoff Tate - Queensrÿche Geoff Tate is a German-born American singer and musician who rose to fame in the 1980s with the progressive metal band Queensrÿche.

Yeah, he doesn't have the drive. But he sang Queen of the Reich and Suite Sister Mary, so who cares. I might like his past more than the present, since all his classic singing is left behind his career. I'll cheer to the past and Geoff brought us some of the greatest performances ever in metal singing.

Check Eyes of a Stranger; The Killing Words; The Prophecy.

64 Iuri Sanson

Singing for brazillian band Hibria, Iuri is a great performer. You should check him in Tiger Punch and listen to his skills. He can run like Axl Rose through the stage but sing way better (not hard, since it's Axl the diva).

65 Oliver Hartmann Oliver Hartmann

He sang for At Vance and Avantasia, and got a solo career (this one isn't metal). But go listen to his Eye of the Tiger cover, or his work on Avantasia's Sign of the Cross, I Don't Believe in your Love or any other song. Beautiful voice (check My Everything is You from his solo career), powerful one.

66 Ryan Clark - Demon Hunter

Such a big voice coming from such a small man! - AngryByrd

67 Nergal - Behemoth Nergal - Behemoth Adam Nergal Darski (born Adam Michał Darski; 10 June 1977 in Gdynia), is a Polish musician and television personality, best known for being the frontman for the black/death metal band Behemoth. more.

His grows, screams and all of his technique are vicious

This list has been taken over by emo scum.

68 Lord Worm - Crytopsy Lord Worm - Crytopsy Dan Greening, aka Lord Worm, is the original vocalist for Cryptopsy, a Canadian technical death metal band. He is also an English teacher.

His scream at the end of open face surgery owns em all

69 Tyler Konersman - Tear Out The Heart
70 Jon Oliva - Savatage Jon Oliva - Savatage John Nicholas Oliva, known as Jon Oliva, is an American composer, multi-instrumentalist and singer. Co-founder of the metal band Savatage and the rock opera Trans-Siberian Orchestra. He's got a real 4 octave range, able to morph the sound of his voice to any style, from John Lennon and Freddie Mercury, more.

He's one of the masters on this list and he screams a lot although he's not a typical screamer.
Try: Hounds, Hall Of The Mountain King. - Metal_Treasure

71 Rody Walker - Protest the Hero

His screams kill me inside. This man can do everything right in a metal band that instrumentally, well, does everything right. In Sequoia Throne he delivers unique sound, and terrifying lows and highs in Bone Marrow, but I must say that Goddess Bound has the most intense harsh vocals. To counterbalance his smooth croons, he hits unhealthily high notes (In the corner of my eyee! ) following right before gravely lows (on the tip, on the tip of my tongue). Honourable mentions: Periphery, Number Twelve Looks Like You, and DEFINITELY Vildhjarta which I'd add if I could (because we all know two screamers is better than one).

72 Bradley Fafara - DevilDriver

He was so much better in DevilDriver than in Coal Chamber! - AngryByrd

73 Bruce Fitzhugh - Living Sacrifice

Horribly underrated band with one of the best vocalists in metal today! - AngryByrd

74 Jason James - Bullet for my Valentine V 1 Comment
75 Travis Ryan - Cattle Decapitation Travis Ryan - Cattle Decapitation Travis Ryan Collins, who goes by the stage name Travis Ryan, is an American musician known for being the vocalist of the Deathgrind band Cattle Decapitation.

He is one of the best screamers/growlers I've ever heard,He can do high pitched screams that I still I cannot believe he can do! And his growls sound amazing! He just can do so much with his voice it's ridiculous and mind-bending!

76 Scott Lewis - Carnifex Scott Lewis - Carnifex
77 King Diamond King Diamond Kim Bendix Petersen, better known by his stage name King Diamond, is a Danish heavy metal musician. He is known for his extensive vocal range, usually sung in falsetto.
