Who's the best singer out?
    #6397564 - 12/22/06 07:38 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

In your opinion, who's vocals are absolutely fuckin killer? I love to hear amazing voices from all genres.

IMO the best at the momment is probably Christina Aguilera (yes she's considered "pop" but that voice is no joke...)

Also Jennifer Hudson and Chad Kroger

Chad Kroger is too overly processed for me.

I like Maynard James Keenans voice (tool). A lot of passion in that dudes vocal chords. plus his tone is just so unique.

I agree about Maynard, but I also should throw in Mikael Åkerfeld.

His voice is fine for the style, he can make it do what he wants. So from a technical standpoint, yeah he has a decent voice.

Their music just fucking sucks.

Except that any of his parts that I've been unwillingly exposed to seem to remain within the scope of one octave or less. He has no range. Just like Nickelback's catalogue.

If drugs have taught us anything, I would hope it would be that everything about Nickelback sucks without compromise, but not as bad as Coldplay.

lol @ Les Claypool - he's not a very good singer but I still like his original style. I've never heard him try to sing anything but Primus style though.

In my opinion:
Tori Amos
Maynard James Keenan
Michael Akerfeldt
Serj Tankian

Nobody new there but I guess that's because they really are the best!

I agree with you on both fronts. Nickelback and Coldplay.. meh. But a lot of people like 'em so we can't really say they're bad.

I just think Nickelback is the perfect example of popular music today. People don't care about solos, intricate progression of the music, the talent, etc. People just want to turn on their radio and sing a long to something catchy. To each his own.

As for great singers today. XTina, yeah she's got a voice.

Too bad this isnt the worst singles thread or you would be dead on. However, he does have a pretty awesome voice despite the fact the songs are crap.

Personally, I like think the best vocalists out there are the following (pardon me for not knowing names):

Josh Groban
Michael Buble
The lead singer of DragonForce
Dave Grohl
Scott Klopfenstein from Littlest Man Band and back up singer of Reel Big Fish
The chick that sings the song called Black Horse and A Cherry Tree (or something to that extent)

that chick from supernova (the one everyone thought was a huge smack addict) is off the chain.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=koleQx92qQc
She has that Tina Turner-like delivery and great pitch. Should've won ;/

Whitney Houston IMO had the best voice i've ever heard on a woman...before the crack. 3 octaves of range and unnerving control of it.


And James brown...not so much for vocals but just makin funk/soul popular. Open tons of doors.

Iron maiden - Bruce dickinson
Dream Theater - James Labrie
Pain of Salvation - Daniel Gildenlöw
Dream Evil - Niklas Isfeldt
Evergrey - Tom S. Englund
Rush - Geddy Lee

Newer Metal/Rock Singers, who can scream and sing:
Killswitch engage - Howard Jones, Jesse Leach
All That Remains - Phil Labonte
Avenged Sevenfold - M. Shadows

For growling and lower range singing, of course, the one and only (already mentioned) is:
Opeth - Mikael Åkerfeldt

And if you like good emotional singing, DEFINITELY check out Anthony Green and Dallas Green.

Definately. Excellent technique with a powerful voice. She isnt taken to seriously because she did disco hits and her popularity went with the era..

Bruce Dickinson from iron Maiden. Good mention. He screams as well but you can definately tell that he has every note he yelps unlike that dude from Linkin Park :P

Thats Billy Corgan... I wouldnt put him up with the best. Musically he is one of the most innovative rock guitarists, but vocally he is mediocre.

i find the sound of his VOICE unique but not his voicelines or his guitar work. i find him rather boring after i look past the uniquness of the sound of his voice.

dax riggs? is that dax from acid bath?

yep, real interesting thing about him. he can hold a whole room in a hypnotic trace w/ his voice but he's so burn he can't even hold a conversation.

Someone else mentioned AcidBath earlier, I believe, and I'd have to agree that Dax is one of the most underrated vocalists of the time. Though, I'm not too much into his work with AcidBath, aside from "Graveflower," "Venus Blue," and 1 or 2 others, I most enjoy his work with Agents of Oblivion and Deadboy. But on another note, there used to be this local band here called Undecided Ritual. I remember listening to the radio and them playing their stuff, but I was too young and too into what was popular at the time to realize how great the vocalist was. Just recently, in fact, I started trying to find music by them since I have a thing for woman vocalists for some reason, and have since found newer stuff by them. They broke up some time ago and the remaining members were going by Noxus for a while, but have broken up yet again. To anyone who wants to take a listen, I've uploaded a clip from one of their songs. You be the judge. http://www.shatteredbeneath.net/clip2.mp3


--------------------
A human being is part of a whole, called by us, the "Universe", a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

yeah, you really cant tell his vocal ability in the Acid Bath album.... but in Agents of Oblivion, his ability is apparent.

As burnt out as he is, I still cannot name one other person who can put so much emotion into what they are singing.

I'm gonna have to say Elizabeth Fraser , lead singer of the Cocteau Twins... no voice is more ethereal, surreal , yet so incoherent at the same time.

Huh? Mike Patton has a pretty incredible and verstatile voice. His work with Fantomas and Mr Bungle is insane. :heart:

Here's my list

Matt Bellamy (sp?) from Muse
The dude from Sigur Ros (no idea what his name is)
Mikael (from Opeth)
Robert Plant (back in the day)
Nick Cave


That's all I got right now.

After re-reading (fine re-skimming..) this post, I saw one name I cannot believe I didn't include.. all the peeps who did remember & listed Serj Tankain know that guy can sing to any genre. An amazing appearance he makes is on the Buckethead album titled Buckethead & Friends - Enter The Chicken. I never heard Serj sound so good as he does on there.. albeit he only has a few tracks, they impact the album more than all other guest vocalists put together.. that dood has got just plain got "it" when it comes to bandwidth of his vocal chords, to hold a note or destroy it.. He even does incoherent black metal barking justice... and when his epic vocal bits come in, i'm definetly put in my place and can merely sing along in my pathetic tone which on a good day is 4-5 octaves off.. thankfully singing backup vocals to his chorus' in my car makes me sound really good..

And i'm still waiting for acknowledgement on Cocteau Twins lead singer.. come on people surely you've nearly wet yourself listening to Lorelei, or Sugar Hiccup.

Oh and also im surprised all but 1 member said Bjork... She's just well.. Bjork.. thats all you can really say, and yet it says it all.

Claudio Sanchez. Not only his range, but the raw emotion.

You should really listen to the musical aspect of it as well. I guess the only way I can show you is to take my ipod down to the beach and we can shroom again :wink:


But without the weird people sexing it up 25 feet from us. That was just...tempting my boner.

But I'll send you a song when I see you online 8=========)

They're good. Highly recommended.

Btw, one of the songs off Arcade Fire's new cd was leaked. I haven't given it a listen yet, though.

Layne Staley had a very soulful voice, in my opinion. I guess I feel like I can relate to his sorta bluesy droan.

oh, and joni mitchell
