Pest(Gorgoroth)
Nocturno Culto(Darkthrone)
Dax Riggs(Acid Bath)
Mille Petrozza(Kreator)
Tom Angelripper(Sodom)


My reasoning is because these are some of my favorite bands..so them singing makes the song

I really don't know Laughing

All I can say about my taste in vocals is I vastly prefer high screams to low screams.

1. Randy Blythe - I love his range of screams and growls and his vocals help make each LoG song so amazing

2. David Draiman - You can't deny he has an amazing voice, and it's so melodic. I also like his growls

3. Morgan Lander - I respect the fact she can scream better than most men can, and I love her clean vocals too. Glad she's been doing more of them in more recent stuff

4. Maynard James Keenan - Oooohhh Maynard. He makes wine in the middle of a desert, he kicks the shit out of people on stage while never missing a note. His voice is so unique and helps draw you in to the songs

5. Satyr (Sigurd Wongraven) - His vocals get some getting used to at first, but you can't deny they're great for black metal. The driving force behind Satyricon just has brutal vocals that trigger something in me

Kirk Windstein - Crowbar. Because he has such a rasp to his voice, and it fits the sludge so well.

Angela Gossow - Arch Enemy. Because she has probably the best scream I have heard. She out-screams most guys out there, IMO.

Johnny Plague - Winds of Plague. Because he has my favorite mid-range scream, I think. And he has a bad-ass name.

Mitch Lucker - Suicide Silence. Probably gonna get hated for this. But, his high screams seem to pierce speakers, and he has quite a beasty low scream. He is one of those guys that has constantly improved over the years.

Chuck Billy - Testament. Best thrash vocalist out there. Ever since they started, he has retained his bad-ass holler, and sometimes a retarded sounding shriek. Also, he survived cancer, and then put out one of the greatest albums of his career, vocal-wise.

I won't hate on you, the man has amazing vocals, no doubt. I also have found myself loving the band more and more. Good choice and not bad of a list.

Dylan, you must have 5? besides just Tarja? She's not that amazing lmfao... foo.

Okay my list, took my a long time to narrow it down to 5. So here we go.....

Randy Blythe (Lamb of God)- I love his range, as Nick stated, I feel like he can do anything vocally. His clean sound has grown so much too, and it sounds great. I really love the song "In your Words" and imo that is as clean has he's ever been.

Jonathan Davis (KoRn)- To me, when people say passion and emotion, Jonathan Davis comes to mind. His range is great..But the reason I love him so much is because of his emotion, and the hurt in his voice...

Anders Friden (In Flames)- Like Jonathan Davis, he too puts a lot of emotion into his vocals. I believe he has the best range out of any vocalist, I love his screams, I love his growls, and I love his clean vocals.

Max Cavalera(Soulfly)- His voice is so gritty, and brutal at times. It's truly beautiful to me. His voice is so angry, thats why I love him. IMO he was the best vocalist in the thrash genre, when he was with Sepultura.

Tony Kakko(Sonata Arctica)- His range is amazing aswell, I love his screams, he doesn't use them all that much, but when he does they are great. But his clean vocals are breath taking.

It was very hard for me to leave out Mikael Stanne, because his vocals are so good as well. but Kakko is a bit a head of him.

Those are all good vocalists, I agree, but if you take the time to explain what you like about them, it opens up room for more people to post and discuss Razz

ok..well i dont need to explain tarja..unless u r asking for another novel about her ok fine shes my number one cause she owns all.and u cant compare to her vocals =] shes in her own class =D so yeah \m/

Ok i like ronnie cause well..hes a metal god has done alot for metal. hes played in many different types of bands and has been a great influence for us today..and u cant argue this fact

Bruce is just fucking awesome..he can do it all with his voice..and bring the whole crowd into the show even they r all the way in the back.he does a good job at that and giving energy to the crowd

Ozzy..well do i need to say it..hes the prince of fucking darkness no questions asked and he was part of the first official metal band black sabbath and has been the only one who can leave his original band and become more popular then them and be far more successful..and ofc ozzy is immortal and will never die

and johan hegg..we hes just awesome he uses he vocal talents really well in his music..and can adjust his vocals well to the mood of the song and is prob the best growler in metal and btw..he has a naturally deep voice..so it says alot about he singing style..
