|Favourite Singy/Screamy People|
Vocalists that make me jizz a little everytime I hear their voice which is awkward because I end up with sticky underwear and to be quite frank it's just plain unpleasant.
His voice is just perfect. It's so whispery and ah, I can't even describe. Perfectly fits the mood of the songs and is so deep and emotional and I just have a raging boner for this man. I wish I'd known him, we'd probably have got along great. Nah, not really. He'd probably have hated me or something.
Jacob motherfucking Bannon. I never thought that sounding like an asphyxiating panther would be this fucking awesome. Like, what the hell. You can't even understand what he's saying but who cares? It's sooo good. Pretty sure his throat must be completely shredded after nearly twenty years of doing this stuff.
The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me
Mr Jesse Lacey, sir. I don't know what it is I like so much about him. He just sounds so sincere and stuff. I guess listening to this so much with my girlfriend has made me supremely biased towards him.
|4||Poison The Well|
You Come Before You
I love Jeffrey Moreira's scream. And his clean vocals too. There's just something about it that's so, well, emotional I guess. He really puts feeling behind his screams. At least I think so anyway. I don't know, my opinion is probably wrong.
|5||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To
If Godspeed You! Black Emperor had a vocalist he'd probably be the best vocalist ever. Eh, making this list made me realize I really don't listen to music for the vocals. It's just another instrument I guess.
|Recommend me stuff? Or I mean, do what you want. It's a free world out there. I think. Unless you're a slave. In which case it's not and your life sucks. But assuming you are a slave I highly doubt you would be posting here anyway. Somebody prove me wrong.|
|Props for 3 and 4, although I'm not a big fan of 2 (vocals at least). And yeah, Elliot Smith's voice is pretty much perfect for what he does.|
I recommend you continue to listen to these 5 artists.
|Oh, and you should listen to P.O.S. and Cecil Otter. Fuck it, all of Doomtree. Just because they are awesome.|
|Absurd, Ulver, Bjork, Tearwave, Neurosis, Primordial, and Bathory.|
|Lol at 5. I agree with 4 for sure. I really like that dude from Cave In, Stephen Brodsky(sp?). I'll rec you Racetraitor and Disembodied.|
|Yeah I like the Cave In guy.|
As for the recs, Racetraitor are okay, never really got into them. Will check out Dismembodied in a bit. Thanks man.
|Did you ever check out that band I posted on your profile?|
|check out deadstare. powerviolence/grind|
|oh yeah, I was meaning to check out those bands. Will do that now and get back to you on what I think of them.|
|bitchin'. Do you have any recs for me?|
|Snöras - Heart of Weakness|
Snöras - Plague Waters
awesome one man screamo band I've been into recently.
Archives - Decline (cool post-rock skramz)
Armchairpolitician - Seven Segment Decoder (experimental post-hardcore-ish stuff)
Chiaroscuro - The Desert (sounds a lot like Circle Takes The Square and would be really awesome with decent production)
A Day In Black And White - My Heroes Have Always Killed Cowboys (screamo)
Elitist - Elitist EP (crusty hardcore)
Failures - Failures (really good chaotic hardcore with ex-members from too many bands to name)
Gantz - La Chambre Des Morts (post-rock screamo)
Heaven In Her Arms - Duplex-Coated Obstruction (japanese post-rock screamo)
|Sweet, thanks. The only one I've heard of is A Day in Black and White.|
Also, check out the receiving end of sirens if you like "singy screamy" vocals, and 3-part harmonies
|Originally, I HATED Jacob Bannon. Now, every time I listen to a Converge record, I love his vocals more and more and more. Besides, what other voice could go along with the insane music?|
