Ever since I first heard Radiohead back when Pablo Honey came out, I’ve been rather intrigued by Thom Yorke. He’s one of the most unique and talented singers I’ve ever heard. When you hear him sing, you know it’s him right off the bat. From all the Radiohead albums to his solo work, you know that when you listen you are going to get something interesting and intriguing. So with all that in mind, here’s a few songs Thom has guested on over the years.
Drugstore- El President (from White Magic for Lovers):
Unkle- Rabbit In Your Headlights (from Psyence Fiction):
Bjork- I’ve Seen It All (from Dancer In The Dark soundtrack):
PJ Harvey- This Mess We’re In (from Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea):
PJ Harvey- One Line (from Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea):
PJ Harvey- Beautiful Feeling (from Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea):
Portishead- The Rip LIVE (from Lattitude Festival 2015):
For over 25 years, Liam Gallagher has been one of the best voices in rock music. I’d also say he’s one of the best singers in that time as well. His style of singing is uniquely him while taking cues from the likes of John Lennon and John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten). Over the years, Liam hasn’t lent his vocals to many other bands but, on the ones he has, he’s given those songs a different feel. Here are the songs Liam has guested on over the years.
The Prodigy- Shoot Down (from Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned):
The Verve- Come On (from Urban Hymns):
Echo & The Bunnymen- Nothing Lasts Forvever (from Evergreen):
Death In Vegas- Scorpio Rising (from Satan’s Circus Vol. 2):
The other day Ozzy celebrated his 70th birthday. Funny enough, while I was on my way home that day, I had my iPod on random and the Rob Zombie song “Iron Head” came on and there was Ozzy singing on it. I had totally forgotten about Ozzy guesting on that song, so of course when I got home I looked up all the songs he’s guested on over the years. So, here’s a bunch of those songs.
Rob Zombie- Iron Head (from The Sinister Urge):
Black Label Society- Stillborn (from The Blessed Hellride):
Coal Chamber- Shock The Monkey (from Chamber Music):
Slash- Crucify The Dead (from Slash):
Tony Iommi- Who’s Fooling Who (from Iommi):
Alice Cooper- Wake The Dead (from Along Came A Spider):
Ringo Starr- Vertical Man (from Vertical Man):
Busta Rhymes- This Means War (from E.L.E.- The Final World Front):
Jamey Jasta is one of the hardest working guys in all of music. From his bands, Hatebreed, Kingdom of Sorrow and his own solo project Jasta, to his running of Stillborn Records, and his well known podcast The Jasta Show, there is no shortage of all things Jasta related out there. In between all the above, Jamey has lent his vocals to quite a few band’s songs over the years. Here are a few of my favorites he has guested on.
For many years now, Howard Jones has been a well respected vocalist in the heavy music world. From his time in Blood Has Been Shed to Killswitch Engage and now with Light The Torch (formerly known as Devil You Know), Howard’s voice and lyrics have resonated with countless amounts of people. Since Light The Torch is getting set to release their new album, Revival (out March 30), I thought it would be fun to put together a bunch of songs Howard has guested on over the years.
36 Crazyfists- Elysium (from Rest Inside The Flames):
Eighteen Visions- One Hell Of A Prize Fighter (from Vanity):
Throwdown- The World Behind (from Vendetta):
Roadrunner United- The Daggar (from Roadrunner United- The All Star Sessions):
Every Time I Die- Punch-Drunk Punk Rock Romance (from Last Night In Town):
Within Temptation- Dangerous (from Hydra):
Jasta- Chasing Demons (from The Lost Chapters):
Asking Alexandria- Until The End (from From Death To Destiny):
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.
Scooter Ward & Tony Iommi- Something Wicked This Way Comes:
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.
A Life Once Lost- Vulture (from HUNTER):
A Life Once Lost- Pigeonholed (from IRON GAG):
Overkill- Skulls and Bones (from IMMORTALIS):
Gojira- Adoration For None (from THE WAY OF ALL FLESH):
