This is it. The definitive list. The voices that make you want to kick your best mate in the face. The 14 best voices in metalcore.
14. CARLO KNOPFEL – BREAKDOWN OF SANITY
If you didn’t appreciate Breakdown Of Sanity while they were around, now’s your chance to catch up. Carlo was an underrated beast.
13. RYAN KIRBY – FIT FOR A KING
You know the longest “yeah boi” you can do? Well Ryan can pull out a growl at least double what you muster. An absolute behemoth.
12. LEVI BENTON – MISS MAY I
Beautiful hair and a voice like a banshee after a can of Red Bull, Levi has it all.
11. JARED WARTH – BLESSTHEFALL
Though Beau lends some beautiful backing growls, Jared really adds the heft to Blessthefall’s glorious brand of noise.
10. BRENDAN MURPHY – COUNTERPARTS
Frenzied one minute, fucking devestating the next, Brendan can do it all.
09. GARRETT RAPP – THE COLOR MORALE
There are few people with a range as interesting as varied as Garrett. We miss you The Color Morale.
08. MIKE HRANICA – THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA
Be honest, if you had Mike stood in front of you belting out lines like he does in Prada you would be bloody terrified wouldn’t you?
07. CJ MCMAHON – THY ART IS MURDER
If Satan ever did show himself, he would shit a brick the minute he heard CJ belt one out.
06. DANI WINTER-BATES – BURY TOMORROW
None more gutteral. Flying for British heaviness, one grunt at a time.
05. JONATHAN VIGIL – THE GHOST INSIDE
Has a man’s voice ever made you want to lift up boulders as much as our mate Vigil? Impossible.
04. SPENCER CHARNAS – ICE NINE KILLS
Sure, Spencer has an absolutely beautiful singing voice, but it’s his range when he lets loose that should be really appreciated. Deranged and destructive in equal measure.
03. BRITON BOND – WAGE WAR
Seriously, how amazing are Wage War? Like fucking hell.
02. WINSTON MCCALL – PARKWAY DRIVE
The word legend gets thrown around lots these days, but when it comes down to Winston it is wholeheartedly justified. The most distinctive growl in the game.
01. JAKE LUHRS – AUGUST BURNS RED
The absolute best of the best. Commanding, brutal, ferocious, melody. Jake can do it all. A king amongst metalcore. Bow down.
