    List the person and band or just the band if you dont know the singers name

    Bert McCracken (the used)
    Jesse Leach (Howard Jones is good too)(killswitch)
    and Mark Hunter (chimaria)

    also does a good scream turn you on?

    A good raunchy shrieking black metal scream? Oh yes! Those hardcore/metalcore vocals? No, not at all.

    haha yeah i have to agree wiht that, i scream for a metal band also, but if i could find a girl to do it with me heh well shit....
  10. Seconded for the sake of truthfulness.
    Also, grunts are only properly used in doom metal. I like them drawn out over several seconds per syllable.

    chris barnes on tomb of the mutilated had a very deep growl
    randy blythe has good range of growls
    muhammed suicmez
    the dudes in dying fetus

  12. Most people seem to revile Maniac (ex-Mayhem) but I have to disagree with them. You should check the song Symbols of bloodswords off of Wolf's lair abyss and I think you'll know what I mean.

    All the stars in the north are dead now...
    All the morals of wasted human...

    Goosebump moment, fo'real.

    I'm more into the deep, guttural growls or evil, piercing shrieks. I'll leave screams for bands like Bullet for my Valentine...God I can't stand them. No disrespect for people who like them, but I've just really started loathing hardcore and a lot of metalcore.
  14. Haha, you mentioned two other forms of screams.
  15. Yeah, i just assumed the original poster meant harsh vocals in general... hardcore vocals, grunts, black metal screams...

    About grunts... Esoteric have the most insane vocals ever. And as I said, I think grunts befit (funeral) doom metal better than death metal or grindcore anyway.

    I'm not really fond of grunts in general. I do like Bongzilla though, that's one of the few exceptions.

    Tom Araya generally yells, not screams.

    fucken ay.

    I'm gonna have to agree with you on Jesse (heard his new band?)
    Chino (Deftones) and Palumbo (Glassjaw) are pretty epic (or should I say were) and of course Mike Patton
    some the shit that guy does is fucken amazing.

    Dani (Cradle) has his moments I guess (love the piercing shrieks) but then I dunno.. that screech starts getting to me after a while.
    Dudes from Sikth are interesting at times too. and the latest DEP vocalist. and Serj (System), when he lets rip.
    hell I just love screams
    cant do em myself though
    any tips?
