Metalcore isn’t all about the screams, you know? A good croon is necessary as well. Here are 12 of the best singers that the genre has to offer.
12. JAKE STEINHAUSER – POLARIS
A new face on the scene, but one that is delivering some absolutely beautiful lines for these Australian bruisers.
11. KYLE ERICH – IN HEARTS WAKE
There’s something in the water Down Under. These are the sort of vocals that could split the ocean in two.
10. JESSE CASH – ERRA
When you’re dealing out riffs that defy gravity, make sure the vocals that accompany them are beyond logic too. Jesse has you covered.
09. VICTOR GUILLET – BETRAYING THE MARTYRS
Ever seen someone play the keyboard like a demon, leap into a crowd and then pull out some of the most haunting of vocals the voice box can muster? That’s Victor’s special skill.
08. MICHAEL MCGOUGH – BEING AS AN OCEAN
Heartbreak has never sounded so good as when it is crooned by our Michael. Who hurt you lad?
07. SHAYLEY BOURGET – DAYSHELL
After cutting his teeth with the Of Mice & Men boys, Shayley now lets his vocal cords free fronting Dayshell. No less spine-tingling.
06. JEREMY DEPOYSTER – THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA
From breakdown-riddled beginnings to the experimental present, Jeremy has been coating Prada’s output in his silky smooth tones for years now. Long may it continue.
05. JASON CAMERON – BURY TOMORROW
Flying the British flag, Jason’s caramel tones compliment the gruff styling of Dani Winter-Bates perfectly. Metalcore made to be played from the top of mountains.
04. BRANDON SELLER – ATREYU
Can you play the drums and sing like your life depended on it at the same time? Can you bollocks. That’s why Brandon is such an iconic figure.
03. CODY QUISTAD – WAGE WAR
Wage War are the future, and that is partly down to the thick servings of Heaven that Cody deals out in their calmer moments.
02. AARON GILLESPIE – UNDERØATH
Is there a more iconic or recognisable voice in the genre? We don’t think so, and you shouldn’t either.
01. TYLER CARTER – ISSUES
There could only be one. If Justin Timberlake fucked with breakdowns, he still wouldn’t have anything on Tyler. Altogether now..RIDDLE ME THIIIIIIIIIIS.
