Guest Vocalist: Scooter Ward of Cold

10551099_10153002846379466_2566822027155703081_n.jpg There are certain singers that I truly feel captivated by. The way they deliver their lyrics, write songs, work out melodies, and even their stage presence, all this really grabs me and makes me feel like I’m a part of the song. One singer in particular that I’ve really loved for over 20 years now is, Scooter Ward of Cold. His ability to do all the above and be as open and vulnerable as he is, is a statement to the honest approach he takes to music. Cold is currently working on a new album, which is pretty exciting. Though in the mean time, until it’s released, check out a few songs that Scooter has guested on over the years.

Guest Vocalist: Randy Blythe

Over the last decade or so, screaming vocals have really become a staple in heavy music. There are so many different types of “screaming.” Some of the frontmen and frontwomen, really have a unique presence and sound to their scream. One person in particular, Randy Blythe of Lamb Of God, is a perfect example of this. The following songs are ones Randy has lent his unique voice to over the years.

Enjoy!

I have long been a fan of Axl Rose. I was even him for Halloween once when I was 4 or 5. Not only does Axl have one the best and most recognizable voices in music but, he has lent his talents to some other bands over the years. Take a listen to Axl guesting on these songs.

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:

Guest Vocalist: Greg Puciato

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:

The new Killswitch Engage album is so damn good. Jesse Leach’s vocals, lyrics and melodies are exceptional throughout all the albums he’s put out. He’s one of the most underrated singers in the last 15 years. As one of my all time favorite vocalists, my curiosity was raised to find out what other songs Jesse has made a guest appearance on. So here you go!

Killswitch Engage- Take This Oath (From The End Of Heartache):

 

Roadrunner United- Blood and Flames:

 

Thy Will Be Done- Preserving The Sacred:

 

 

Guest Vocalist: Ian Astbury of The Cult

Way back when I was a little lad I remember seeing the video for The Cult’s “Fire Woman” and thinking that the guy singing was outstanding. So naturally I had my parents take me to go buy their album Sonic Temple. Over the years I’ve really noticed I love Ian Astbury’s voice. In the past few years The Cult has come back and are delivering the goods. Their last two albums, Choice Of Weapon and Hidden City are fantastic, and have that classic edge the band has always had. Ian’s voice has always been distinct and when you hear it on other band’s songs, it brings something special out of those songs. Here are a few songs that Ian has guested on over the years.

 

Tony Iommi w/ Ian Astbury- Flame On:

 

Slash w/ Ian Astbury- Ghost:

 

Circus Of Power- Shine:
