Best metal screams/growls?
« on: May 08, 2010, 06:33:41 pm »
To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of growling of screaming. I like it more in moderation.

But, one thing that I always talk about with my friends is

What band/singer does the best growls/screams?

My personal favorites are:
Mikael Akerfeldt from Opeth
Aaron Turner from Isis
Howard Jones from Killswitch Engage
Jens Kidman from Meshuggah

Who are your favorites?

Trevor Phipps from Unearth has a few good ones. There are two in "Giles" that are absolutely awesome, one right at the beginning and another about halfway through.
And that's why they call me Duino Duck- Drake of Daring, Mandarin of Magnificence, Water Fowl of West Seattle!

Hm... I'll go by overall genre (of BM and DM... not going into subgenres, which would take me all day, heh...).

Death metal/grind:
Wayne Knupp (of Devourment (Rest in peace, man...))
Don of the Dead (of NunSlaughter)
Pissy (of Intestinal Disgorge)
Chris Barnes (of Cannibal Corpse (even if their most recent material is pure shit))

Black metal:
Lord Lokhraed (of Nocturnal Depression (regardless of what anyone else would say... I love his vocal style))
Darken (of Graveland)
Seamus DeVille (of Slave Whipping Blasphemy)
Abbath Doom Occulta (of Immortal)
Rugiewit (of Slavogorje)
Giovanna Fella (of Ragnarok)
Anonymous (of Black Bile (it is unknown of what their true identity is, so I put this...))
Zhao Qiang (of Be Persecuted)
I (of Cry)
Nefastvm (of Apathia)
Nattetale (of Make a Change... Kill Yourself)

I really dig:
Randy Blythe from Lamb of God
Alexi Laihlo for Children of Bodom
All the different guys who "sang" for Mayhem over the years
and Chuck Shulidner from Death.

The way I see it, it should at least be semi-understandable.  If you can make it out somewhat, it's cool.

Michael Akerfeldt from Opeth. All fall before the moment at 7:35 in this song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjK3i5uWkno&feature=related. "I don't know how, or why, and I'll never, know WHeeeeeeeennnnn....."

Only recently did I find out that Godsmack was a metal band and they have some pretty good songs.

Hmmm...I definitely have to say Angela Glassow from Arch Enemy. (Yes everyone a female growler! she is a fright to behold!) and Whiplash from DeathStars he growls on occasion.
Not by wrath does one kill but by laughter. Come! Let us kill the spirit of gravity!

Waking the cadaver, and Quo Vadis.

Some pig squeals and deep roars. Very awesome.

Winston McCall, from Parkway Drive.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6cuHAwQdFQ

One of my favourite songs, Horizons. At very end, when he screams "Em-brace, your last, emp-ty........Horizooooooooooons!" is my favourite Parkway moment. The last few "Horizons"'s sound so heartfelt....I love them.

Not too interested in death screaming songs but i guess Suicidal Silence.
My one friend (a girl) can sing screamo, as well as any band listed probably

Let's see...
I don't know if I'm one to judge a "good scream," but among the songs I like there are some with screaming that I like(Though not all necessarily metal songs).

This one's cliche, considering... I like almost every song this band puts out, but I must admit that I really like it when Lacey screams like a psychopath, especially in this: The Song For Which They Are Most Known!(A little ashamed of using this as an example)
Of course, Cassie also has a small segment where she gives a scream that I like.("I will say YES!")

Charlie Simpson of Fightstar makes me smile a bit with these, especially considering the mood I'm in when I usually play this song: Deathcar by Fightstar

And finally, Chimaira did this nice little number, which I also play when angry: Paralyzed by Chimaira
Meh.

-I really like it when Lacey screams like a psychopath-

YES. I love Flyleaf, and for some reason I find it really hot when a girl screams like she does...not a clue why.

It sounds amazingly good and terrible at the same time. The odd duality of it attracts my ears and my attention, as well as my affection.
I think it's a perfect way to convey emotional stress and anger, often moreso than a male voice.

I'm also fond of the growl that John Cooper gives in Monster, but it's most certainly edited.
Of course, I have no bias for or against editing. I could care less: It sounds good. >:)
Meh.
