02.13.12 Favorite Singers ('til Now)

Favorite Singers ('til Now)

No particular order except for TOP 5.
1Van Der Graaf Generator
Godbluff


Peter Hammil Probably my favorite. Powerfull, eery, depf, hollow, emotive, kinda queer in fact, sarcastic, soulfull, evil, an existencial storyteller of the contradictions of human kind. He sings/shouts/cries with his entrails and proves that is possible sing raw and beautifully at the same time. Top 3: Arrow, After The Flood, Man Erg
2Atheist
Unquestionable Presence


Kelly Shaefer Ok, not the badassest death metal singer, or the most extreme "vocal blender" (Arkenfeldt). But he puts heart in the cold word of "guttural singing". Arkenfeldt blends extreme guttural with extreme clean vocals, but has just one "guttural" style like most death metal singers, Shaefer do some subtle variations in his guttural/scratched voice (with the help of some studio effects, of course). Well, could be not the most prominent menber of Atheist (Steve Flynn and Tony Choy), but he gives personality to the band and power to the lyrics. Top 3: An Incarnations Dream; Unquestionable Presence; Water
3Pantera
Cowboys From Hell


Phil Anselmo I simple like too much his voice and his way of singing. He and Pantera lead me into extreme metal and after this years (not so many years, hehe) he remains as the most badass and funny metal singer/screamer and one of the greatest frontmen ever IMO. (And showed that he have some heart in Down). So hard to choose a Top 3... Top 3: Art Of Shredding (Pantera); New Level (Pantera); Nothing In Return (Down)
4Tool
Aenima


Maynard james Keenan Shouts of rage, cries of lust, moans of despair and whispers of cynicism or maybe shouts of despair, cries of cynicism, moans of lust and whispers of rage or.....whatever....you get it. Top 3: Pushit; Third Eye; Sober
5Kyuss
Welcome To Sky Valley


John Garcia Sorry Robert Plant and Ian Gillan, but this is the best hard rock singer. Top 3: Gardenia; Whitewater; Demon Cleaner
6Frank Zappa
Zoot Allures


Frank Zappa Coolest voice ever, primarily to tell a story....and pretty versatile for a "non- great singer". Top 3: The Torture Nevers Stops; Caroline Hard-Core Ecstasy; Hungry Freaks, Daddy
7Faith No More
King for a Day... Fool for a Lifetime


Mike Patton The most versatile that I know (oh that's new), but besides that he can be true and satirical at the same time. Top 3: Just A Man (FNM); Mery Go Bye Bye (Mr. Bungle); Don't Even Trip (Peeping Tom)
8Emerson Lake and Palmer
Works Vol. 1


Greg Lake Well, he is not versatile, but he had the opportunity to transmit a lot of emotions and sensations with his simple and good voice. And the fact that he worked with two of the greatests prog bands helps. This Top 3 will be hard... Top 3: Hallowed Be Thy Name (ELP); Tarkus (ELP); Cat Food (King Crimson)
9Alice In Chains
Facelift


Layne Staley His voice is so overly scratched tha it fits like another guitar with Jerry Cantrell's one. And I think he have a wha-wha pedal in the throat. Not forgetting his work with Mad Season. Top 3: Man In The Box (AiC); Rooster (AiC); Lifeless Dead (Mad Season)
10Soundgarden
Badmotorfinger


Chris Cornell Great one. I prefer he screaming wrapped into distortion than singing with an acoustic guitar. Top 3: Slaves & Bulldozers; Jesus Christ Pose; Smokestack Lightning
11Living Colour
Time's Up


Corey Glover The perfect singer for Living Colour. This band made a "Third Position" in "late 80's/early 90's hard rock" that isn't grunge or hair metal. Top 3: Information Overload; Money Talks; Nothingness
12Captain Beefheart
Trout Mask Replica


Don Van Vilet The Bizarre Shaman Hobo Master. Top 3: Orange Claw Hammer; When Big Joan Sets Up; Moonlight On Vermont
13 Elis Regina
Elis


Elis Regina Best brazillian female singer IMO. Top 3: Cartomante; Águas de Março; Romaria
14Soft Machine
Third


Robert Wyatt I don't use to like soft, beautiful, jolly voices. This guy is the exception. Top 3: Moon In June (Soft machine); Sea Song (solo); Alefib (solo)
15Can
Tago Mago


Damo Suzuki The most tripy voice. His crazy and unfeeling style fits perfectly with this band, pionner in mix avant-garde with pop. Top 3: Oh Yeah; Future Days; Halleluwah
16 Nação Zumbi
Da Lama Ao Caos


Chico Science I'm Brazilian and I agree when people say that portuguese language don't match with rock in general. But when this band mixed the American rhythm that spread around the world with maracatu creating a new way to make brazillian rock, the unique singing style of Chico Science fit very well. Top 3: Da Lama Ao Caos; A Cidade; Samba Makossa
17Cream
Wheels of Fire


Jack Bruce With Captain Beefheart and Rory Gallager he is the white guy who can sings blues very good and he is one of the best bassists ever. (I would put Rory, but don't know much about him yet).
18 Cassia Eller
Acústico MTV


Coolest brazillian female singer IMO.
19Aghora
Aghora


Diana Serra Usually I'm not fan of "female fronted metal"... well... 'til I found this one with prog-technical background.
20Sisters Of Mercy
First And Last And Always


Andrew Eldritch I don't listened a single album by The Sisters Of Mercy, but....c'mom....the guy is cool as hell. Top 3: Walk Away; Possession; Dominion
