|Awesome Vocal Cameos|
My absolute favourite vocal cameos by some of the best singers some you may have heard of, some you haven't..
|1||Mike Patton with the Dillinger Escape Plan|
Irony is a Dead Scene, in particular "When Good Dogs Do Bad Things". Only one singer could do justice to the chaos that is Dillinger's music. That man is Patton.
|2||Anneke Van Giersbergen with Devin Townsend Project|
Addicted. "Numbered" is the highlight. The chemistry between Anneke and Devin Townsend is the spark that ignites this album.
|3||Mikael Akerfeldt with Ihsahn|
"Unhealer" from angL
|4||Garm with The Gathering|
"A Life All Mine" is a smoky, sultry walk through the dark alleys of The Gathering's album "Souvenirs". The Ulver frontman's voice complements Anneke's beautifully.
|5||Ladi 6 with Shapeshifter|
"When I Return" from Shapeshifter's breakthrough album "Riddim Wise". Her voice adds another dimension to Shapeshifter's already soulful sound.
|6||Mikael Akerfeldt with Edge of Sanity|
"Crimson". This 40 minute epic features a young Mike Akerfeldt and even then his growl was epic and distinguishable.
|7||Rodleen Getsic with Deftones|
"Knfe Prty" from White Pony. Already an amazing track, made 100 times better with the spine tingling vocal break from Rodleen Getsic.
|8||Hollie Smith with Fat Freddy's Drop|
"Hope" from "Based on a True Story". If you listened to her voice with eyes closed, you'd swear you were listening to a Black gospel singer...but she's a tiny white Kiwi girl.
|9||Liz Fraser with Massive Attack|
"teardrop" from mezzanine. ex-cocteau twins singer lends her silky voice to a classic album.
|10||Martina-Topley Bird with Tricky|
"Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos" from Maxinquaye. She makes this song her own, which is all the more impressive considering it was originally sung by a male.
|11||Nicki Minaj with Kanye West|
"Monster" from My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. She steals the spotlight from some other pretty impressive singers.
|12||Kimbra with Gotye|
"Somebody that I used to Know" from Making Mirrors. The song that helped launch Kimbra into the world. With a little help from a No 1 video.
|13||Shirley Bassey with Propellerheads|
"History Repeating" from "decksdrumsnrocknroll". Vintage Shirley Bassey shows age is no barrier with her funkiest song since Goldfinger way back in 1965. Awesome.
|14||Devin Townsend with Ayreon|
"Rage" from The Human equation. Townsend steals the show from an all-star list of singers. He also makes this horribly cheesy album listenable.
|15||Chris Cornell with Temple of the Dog|
"Say Hello to Heaven" from Temple of the Dog s/t.Whether or not this is a cameo is debatable, but one thing is beyond debate. The man could sing. Once upon a time anyway.
|16||Maynard with Deftones|
"Passenger" from White Pony. A beautiful balance between Chino's harsher vocals.
|17||Steven Wilson with Opeth|
"Bleak" from Blackwater Park.
|18||David Bowie with Queen|
|19||Iggy Pop with ATDI|
"Rolodex Propoganda" from Relationship of Command.
|20||PJ Harvey with Thom Yorke|
"This Mess We're In"
