That Metal Debate: The Top 5 Best Screams In A Song

by (@_bobina)

This week on That Metal Show we were joined by Joey Kramer and Brad Whitford of Aerosmith. Also joining us was TMS alum George Lynch, who stopped by and melted our faces as our guest shredder.

We had to recruit Evan Seinfeld (Attika7) for one of the toughest TMS Top 5 lists we’ve have ever done on the show: Best Screams on a song. There are so many shrieks and shrills out there in the music world, including the ones we can never forget, like the haunting scream in “Child In Time” by Deep Purple and “Angel of Death” by Slayer (Side note: This one still scares Jim Florentine to this day.) We could easily debate Top 5 Rob Halford Screams, not to mention those of Sebastian Bach, but then we remembered it’s called the TMS Top 5, not Top 100 – So, here’s our top 5:

  1. Judas Priest – “Victim Of Changes”
  2. Queensryche – “Queen Of The Reich”
  3. Iron Maiden – “The Number Of The Beast”
  4. Slayer -  “Angel Of Death”
  5. Manowar – “Black Wind, Fire and Steel”

Can you make a better list? Watch the full episode below and leave a comment with your Top 5 Screams in a song. Tune in to VH1 Classic Saturday night at 11/10c for an all new episode of That Metal Show with King Diamond, Mark Tremonti (Creed) and Doug Aldrich.
