I will go on record saying that James Hetfield is one of the most underrated singers and guitarists EVER! And even though he’s been busy with Metallica for the past 30 plus years, James still finds time to do some guest spots on other bands albums. Here are some of the songs James has guested on over the years.

Guest Vocalist: Anthony Green of Circa Survive & Saosin

This past year Saosin returned with a great new album, and their first since 2003 to feature original singer Anthony Green. You might know Anthony from the band Circa Survive, which he started after leaving Saosin. His voice is very unique and interesting. He’s got a very high pitched singing voice and one of the best higher screams I’ve heard. Since the new Saosin album Along The Shadows came out, I’ve been listening to it a lot and it’s quite good. It also got me wondering what other songs Anthony has guested on over the years. So here you go!

A Life Once Lost- All Teeth:

 

Envy On The Coast- The Gift of Paralysis:

 

Fear Before the March of the Flames- My Deer Hunter:

 

Balance and Composure- Keepsake:

 

The Receiving End of Sirens- Flee The Factory:

 

Guest Vocalist: Brandon Boyd

This morning I woke up with the Incubus song “A Certain Shade Of Green” in my head. So I thought I’d go on an Incubus kick. I also wondered what other songs Brandon has guested on over the years. Well the following are those songs he has appeared on.

 

Strait Up (Tribute to Lynn Strait of Snot)- Divided:

I’ve been in the mood lately to go back and listen to The Dillinger Escape Plan. Their singer Greg Puciato has really grown on me over the years. He’s really found his own path amongst the bands catalog, side projects like Killer Be Killed and The Black Queen and by the songs he has guested on over the years. Dillinger are going to be releasing new music very soon, so I thought why not share some of the songs Greg has guested on over the years.

 

Lamb Of God- Torches:

Soulfly- Rise Of The Fallen:

 

Every Time I Die- The Marvelous Slut:

 

Suicide Silence- Monster Within:
