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.

Mike Patton is one of the most prolific vocalists in music. Notice how I didn’t just say rock! Patton has one of the most unique voices and ranges too. All of the projects he has been a part of are interesting and fun. I’ve always been fond of Mr. Bungle and Peeping Tom especially. Here are a few of the songs Mr. Patton has guested on over the years.

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:
