Looking for riffs this fine Saturday morning? Look elsewhere, you chump. Wait don’t go. Join us for our first ever Toilet ov Hell Scream ov the Week. We’ve got some doozies.

Last week I didn’t win. It might be because you all hate me as much as I do. It also might be because Howard Dean dropped a mean Burzum classic on us, and I’m gonna pretend it’s the latter. I gotta be honest, I wasn’t expecting so many of you to vote for a riff by Vargy (he hates when I call him that probably). But the power of his riffs cannot be denied out of principle. I sure as shit voted for it.

If my memory serves me correctly, this makes Howard Dean the first two-time winner in ROTW history. But my memory sucks and shouldn’t be trusted.

As far as the rest of us go, we all pretty much got around the same number of votes. Except you, George Lynch. You fucking blew it. (SPOILER: he makes up for it this week)

BUSINESS:

  • Okay lads and lasses, next week we’re going genre-specific: THRASH RIFFS ONLY. Before you ask — yes, I will take variations of the genre, but let’s keep it thrashy if we can. Why thrash? Because our beloved founder’s name says so.
  • Submit your thrash riffs to toiletovhell@gmail.com.
  • Pick a specific part of the song or I will murder you, you horse’s asses.
  • If you have an idea for a theme (or a preference for another genre-specific segment), make it known!

 

Masterlord Steel Dragon

Meet Tyrannizer of Nocturnal. I’m pretty sure this was recorded as she was actually flung into a portal and down through all Nine Circles of Hell. As you can tell, it’s a long way down.

 

Paris Hilton

I’ve always have had a soft spot for Judas Priest despite the fact that by today’s standards they sound like an ironic Tenacious D joke. Let’s be real. Judas Priest is completely fucking ridiculous. I love them, this song, and this scream for that reason. It comes from a time when metalheads didn’t take themselves too seriously, could uncross their arms, and have some fucking fun listening to the music!

 

Nordling Rites ov Karhu

Many are willing to argue that post-reunion Brutal Truth vokills suck at least when compared to earlier efforts, 1:35 of “Sugardaddy” disagrees with you. So do I.

 

Brock Samson

I absolutely love Rainer Landfermann’s vocal style, but I understand why a lot of people hate it.  He used to be the vocalist for Bethlehem and he teamed up with Anaal Nathrakh to produce what may be his best shriek/puberty howl. Scream starts at 2:55. I know this is not for everyone since you need to be that special sort of fucked up in the head to like it.

 

Jack Bauer

The second I saw the category I knew I would be choosing this. The scream/growl starts at 3:15 and goes all the way to 4:02!

 

Edward

On arguably Cattle Decapitation’s greatest album, Travis Ryan performs an unbelievable vocal performance on “Lifestalker.” Ryan works through shouts, vaguely black metal evil talk, deep growls, and “clean” singing over the course of a single song. This song could contend for a regular Riff of the Week; check out Ryan’s vocal performance instead for your pick for Scream of the Week. Check out the whole damn thing.

 

Satan Ov Hell

15 seconds in is one of the best screeches in metal. One could call it pure Gold. Ehh, EHHH?! [MSD – Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!] I’ll show myself out.

 

Coolstorybro

Best scream in my book will always go to Tool’s Maynard with this 28 second scream from “The Grudge.” He lets loose while the rest of the band goes into overdrive behind him, riding his shredded larynx into eternity.

 

Ellipsis

@4:50 bassist Dave Ewardson’s guttural roar begins what soon becomes a three pronged assault, with guitarist Scott Kelly and Steve Von Till’s tormented screams joining in on this classic Neurosis climax.

 

Tom Warrior’s Beanie

The intro scream of “The Marshall (sic) Arts” by Razor!

 

Call the Slambulance

I swear to God I’ll fight the fuck out of you.

 

George Lynch

If you are not familiar with this song, then prepare for glory! If you tune into 3:24 or here you will notice there are not one, not two, but thirty three of the worlds great yelps! Enjoy!

 

Kim Jong Un’s Penis Tornado

It’s got tons of different riffs, and tons of screaming power metal vocals for ya. Enjoy!

 

Xan

Martin van Drunen has some of my favorite growls of all time. Whether in Asphyx, Hail of Bullets, or Grand Supreme Blood Court, he kills it every time.

 

Johnny Crunch

When I was a youngster the change of a vocalist was pretty much the death knell for most bands, so when Barnes was replaced in Cannibal Corpse after such a breakthrough album in The Bleeding I was a little concerned. The opening scream from the opening track off of Vile was enough to convince me that Cannibal Corpse were in safe hands.

 

Janitor Jim

This scream is one of the best screams I’ve heard in a long time. People may think Rob Halford is incapable of doing good screams at this point but this scream that begins at 1:05 is just epic.

 

Jimmy McNulty

Alissa White-Gluz is one phenomenal singer with jaw-dropping versatility (“The Escape”, just start at the beginning). I understand that she’s making more money with Arch Enemy but nothing they compose can touch anything off The Agonist’s album Prisoners. I may not win this week; but just maybe Alissa will catch my star white-knighting skills!

  • Firstly “Fist’N” Firsterson

    SCREAM FIRST OF THE WEEK!!!!

    • VVorld Peace

      Firstly!

    • What an honor!

      • Ferris Mueller

        You guys let voting go a few days longer in case we can’t check in over the weekend. Maybe close it Wed/Thurs?

    • Stockhausen

      Eyyyyy!!

  • Death

    Karhu would have taken my vote if it had been something from Need to Control. Gonna go with Neurosis.

    • Nordling Rites ov Karhu

      Damn you, Ellipsis (i might need to go with that too, or Unhuman)

      • …Ellipsis…

        Unhuman’s vocalist is a beast.

        • Nordling Rites ov Karhu

          Damn shame he never got around releasing anything with Killitorous.

          • He did actually, they did a song. I forget which though.

          • Nordling Rites ov Karhu

            Must.Commence.Search

    • …Ellipsis…

      Death = Intelligent, handsome fellow.

  • Edward #negrod4eva

    Hey, not trying to nitpick or anything, but I don’t think we were given the option to vote for McNulty.

    • …Ellipsis…

      #Justice4Jim

    • Death

      Maybe this is a punishment for choosing a terrible song from a terrible band?

      • …Ellipsis…

        Death = Mean, belligerent fellow.

        • M Shadows!

          Death=Loofah

          • MoshOff

            M Shadows!

          • M Shadows!

            MoshOff!

      • Edward #negrod4eva

        That occurred to me but I don’t think it was intentional lol.

        McNulty >>>>>>

        • Death

          Most of the times McNulty is >>>>>>>>>>>>, but sometimes he can be very <<<<<<<<<<<<<<.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            I would go as far as to the same thing about myself.

          • Death

            You’re too nice to be <<<<<<<<<<<<<<.

    • VVorld Peace

      Ooh, I think I can fix that. Let me dive into the dashboard.

    • VVorld Peace

      Success. Vote away!

    • das okay, i can’t compete with Travis “Handsome” Ryan!!!!!

  • I think Alyssa should have stayed with the agonist, the new arch enemy is decent, but agonist was overflowing with potential.

    • Edward #negrod4eva

      Ca$h rule$ everything JB!

      • Unfortunately yea….

        • Edward #negrod4eva

          Dolla dolla billz, y’all.

          • Oh hey, I voted for you btw. Cattle Decapitation>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            JB >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    • MoshOff

      I think Arch Enemy would RULE if they let Alyssa sing and not just scream. It’s never gonna happen because stupid metal dorks would riot, but one can dream.

  • TomWarriorsBeanie

    Damn, good picks this week. I’m also now inspired to listen to Monolith of Inhumanity a few hundred more times.

  • Completely unrelated but I’m currently falling in love with clutch, I used to only like Electric Worry (dat harmonica solo) but I got their discography recently and I have loved every fucking second of it.

    • Edward #negrod4eva

      JB you are really moving away from your stereotype.

      • lol yea, well my stereotype is wrong. I like pretty much everything aside from country rap and edm. Tech death just happens to be my favorite. Not that big on black metal either.

        • Edward #negrod4eva

          Perhaps me and W. can still get you into a little hip hop, and I imagine being a part of this community it would be damn hard to keep away from black metal for long.

          • Yea I’m sure it will happen over the course of next year or something.

          • I have something like 4000 songs on my playlist right now lol.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            4,000 songs in your… queue?

          • VVorld Peace

            No, his iPod shuffle playlist.

        • David Vincent on Tinder

          You should try Jerry Reed if you don’t like country.

      • racist

    • VVorld Peace

      I could listen to Clutch everyday. Seriously. Pure Rock Fury is quite possibly the best rock album ever written and blows everything else out of the water.

    • KJM

      Clutch fucking rocks that shit hard.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qn-SSU71jw

    • RustyShackleford

      I saw them live a couple years ago on the Earth Rocker tour. They opened with The Mob Goes Wild off of Blast Tyrant (my favorite album of theirs) and I damn near lost my shit. One of my favorite bands dude!

    • Lacertilian

      Good shit.
      I’ve loved them since I saw the video for Burning Beard, then forgot about them until Neil Fallon was on that Mastodon video dressed as a clown going nuts.
      Saw them at a festival a few years ago and again last year on the Earth Rocker tour. It’s impossible not to stomp your feet at their gigs after some drinks/smoke.

  • Voting for Painkiller. Death version is better tho.

  • Death
    • you’re full of surprises

      • Death

        What do you mean? I’ve liked Misery Index for a long time. I thought you knew!

        • sorry man, they rip but i know you don’t like most death metal

          • Death

            They have grind influence, so I can like them.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            He probably doesn’t like Dire Straits either which is just mean.

          • Death

            I don’t, because Dire Straits suck.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT? Money For Nothing, Telegraph Road, Sultans Of Swing?!? None of those songs suck. Dire Straits is untouchable.

          • Death

            All of those songs suck
            FTFY

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            You’re so mean. 🙁

          • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

            Even if a person doesn’t like straits that much a person would be a fool to discount the playing abilities of mark knopfler. I don’t know of anyone who has such a distinctive tone, 2 seconds into a song and you knows its him.

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

        He is. He doesn’t like Styx! How can you hate Styx?

        • Death

          HOW CAN SOMEONE LIKE STYX?

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            The Grand Illusion. That is why people can like Styx. I have all their albums on vinyl and I’m proud of that.

        • It’s pretty easy actually.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            Not for me. One of the first non metal CDs I bought was a Styx greatest hits album. I’ve loved them ever since.

        • Johnny James McCrunchy

          Are you Eddie Trunk IRL?

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            No. I just love Styx. I love the band UFO much more than Styx though.

          • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

            I prefer the non dennis de young songs of which there are plenty, blue collar man, miss america, renegade, all great hard rock songs. Its not all syrupy ballads like babe and come sail away.

    • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

      The violent imagery in this image quite frankly turns my stomach. What if a child was to come upon this. This is torture porn. Good Gracious, what’s this world coming to.

      • Death

        ….

    • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

      here is something the whole family can enjoy, grandma, the kids, aunt myrtle and little johnny from next door. Mom can make a cool pitcher of iced tea with a lemon in it and we can all enjoy some overly complicated cluttered music hiding under the facade of musical genius.

      • Death

        Conan, there’s a rule on that one band you’re talking about.

        • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

          I beat the system though, the image sidesteps the sin of actually writing out the letters like this :

          EEE LEL PEE

  • Corpsegrinder busts out a 15 second long scream starting at 3:05. Always thought that it was impressive http://youtu.be/0luPiZg5wIA

  • Hubert, Goat ov Doom (and Void

    Kinda sad that George Lynch didn’t get many votes last week, that was actually quite a great riff. Anyway COMMENCE THE JUDGEFICATION OV THE SCREAMS:

    NOCTURNAL: It’s a good scream, but it drags on for too long. MEH
    JUDAS PRIEST: Never listened to Judas Priest before. The song is good. The scream was not very special to me though. MEH
    BRUTAL TRUTH: Sounds like a regular metal scream but longer. FLUSH
    ANAAL NATHRAK: This would be a lot more effective if these vocals were only used sparingly. This scream didn’t stand out to me at all. FLUSH
    UNHUMAN: Now this, this is metal as phuck. BYAH!!!!!
    CATTLE DECAPITATION: Travis’s vocals are awesome, but they wouldn’t have the same impact without the stellar songwriting. SMALL BYAH!
    WOODS OF YPRES: This is just a regular scream. BYAH FOR SONG, FLUSH FOR SCREAM
    TOOL: This one is indeed great. It does drag on a bit though. SMALL BYAH
    NEUROSIS: Can’t go wrong with Neurosis. BYAH!!!!!!!
    RAZOR: Again, it’s good, but it drags. This one is actually REALLY good however, so it get’s away with it. BYAH!
    BLASPHTIZED: I love slam vocals. Please don’t fight me. BYAH

    SAVATAGE: This sux. FLUSH. FLUSH AGAIN FOR CLEANLINESS
    STRIDE: FLUUUUUUUUUUUUSH
    ASPHYX: Nothing special. MEH

    Don’t have the time for the others so Neurosis wins bye.

    • God

      “Anaal Nathrak” “Vocals uses sparingly…” Its like you dont know Anaal Nathrak Mr. Goat.

    • Stopped reading at “Never listened to Judas Priest before.”

      • Hubert, Goat ov Doom (and Void

        I’ve also never listened to Iron Maiden. COME AT ME BRO

        • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

          That’s like people who say they have never seen star wars. It’s rare but i respect it.

          • Hubert, Goat ov Doom (and Void

            I’m planning on checking out their discography sometime, but I have a lot of music to catch up on, and I want to give everything the time it deserves. What’s a good album to start with?

          • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

            I hear you on the so many bands, so little time argument. I feel the same way, being older i like to buy all the OSDM albums i missed buying in the early 90’s. We are talking about iron maiden right, so i would skip priest at this time ( to many poor albums). I myself am a fan of live albums. The first rush cassette tape i bought was the live exit stage left, i went to purchase moving pictures but it was sold out so i bought ESL instead. It had all the best songs from the era and i played it until it broke. So going by that thinking i would say Live after death from 85 would be a good start for Maiden. Its got all the best from my favorite albums number of the beast, piece of mind and powerslave plus a couple from the 2 dianno albums. Bruce nails the dianno tracks bringing them to a whole new level of greatest.
            I may catch flack but i think dianno was the shits as a frontman, singer and lryicist. He comes of as a proto tough guy and his vocals are just not my bag. If they hadn’t got rid of him lord knows where maiden would be. Probably reduced to only playing gigs in america once every 10 years or playing on a metal cruise. That’s my honest recommendation. If you are not into live albums , if someone put a gun to my head i would say powerslave. Piece of mind & beast are untouchable as well.

          • Hubert, Goat ov Doom (and Void

            Thanks, will check these out soon.

    • Edward #negrod4eva

      Hubert I dig your weekly breakdowns.

  • Scrimm

    Asphyx without question. MVD!!

    • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

      i meant to
      ask you, how was the king diamond show.

      • Scrimm

        Got cancelled a couple hours before showtime. Horrible.

        • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

          jesus christ man, i’m sorry.

          • Scrimm

            Yeah thanks man. It was not a good night. I made the best of it though. Went to the record store and bought a stack of cds and then got hammered.

          • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

            You had to travel to get there too if i remember. I went to a rush concert in 86 that cancelled. It was a 5 hour drive and when we got there we went to a really big mall. Lots of people were wearing rush shirts and looking dejected. So i talk to one and they tell me its cancelled because there was a snow storm ( it was march ) between calgary and edmonton ( where i was). I was 16 at the time, they were my favorite band and i was crushed. I was in shock. For the next couple of weeks i am not too proud to say i cried on more than one occasion over missing that concert. I finally saw them in 2012. So i know about the loss of a cancelled concert. I would rather my girlfriend dumped me than have to miss a great concert.

          • Scrimm

            That’s a bummer man it’s never fun. Also happened to me the first time I was supposed to see Maiden in the 90’s

  • This is the other scream I was considering using: 0:34 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzSNqW1sTvA

  • Howard Dean

    I never in a million years expected a Burzum riff to win a RotW. Thank you, Toilet ov Hell! I’m proud of you! Byah! A thousand times byaaaaaahhhhhhhh!

    • zeke…or isaac; whatever

      Howard, my girlfriend that hates metal wanted me to let you know that she loves your posts. she’s sitting here screaming byahhhhh!!!!! unfortunately she complains every time I put on burzum because she thinks varg sounds like a howling dog

      • Howard Dean

        A very special byah! to your girlfriend, dude! If she likes the Howard and his ridiculous banter/atavistic byahing, she’s a keeper. Put a ring on her post haste!

        • Zeke; or isaac… Whatever

          I call her my girlfriend, but we’re actually engaged. With that said, she gets so annoyed when I crank burzum and hold the speaker up to her ear while she’s laying in bed that I’m starting to rethink the whole thing.

          • Howard Dean

            Burzum is love; Burzum is life. But do not rethink your engagement over your future spouse’s disapproval and displeasure of Burzum, for you will find in this world few women with a love for Varg noise. This dislike is not uncommon.

          • Howard Dean: Relationship Counselor.

    • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

      speaking of satan claws.

      Only 18 short days til the celebration of the god that failed.

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    So much yes to Savatage!

  • KJM

    I thought I was gonna puke my guts up laughing when I saw Savatage do that song live. #DemYelps

    • Did you leave the hall after?

      • KJM

        I remained for the rest of the show. It was a good one.

  • EVERYONE WHO DOESN’T VOTE FOR SAVATAGE WILL BE FED TO JON OLIVA http://musicenthusiastmag.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/JP_RTC-P03.jpg

    • KJM

      To be fair, even those who DO vote for Savatage stand a good chance of becoming Jon food(no hate).

      • Life is short and cruel

        • KJM

          And Jon’s appetite is great.

    • Idk man, the texas hippie coalition dude seems hungrier.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

      Can I be fed to Jon? That would be awesome.

    • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

      I thought you were nice people here. But your hatred for fat people means you also hate babymetal, which makes you racists, misogynists and pedophiles, because if you say you don’t like babymetal it means you secretly are a pedophile (makes sense doesn’t it ? )

  • KJM

    I was considering sending in ‘Victim Of Changes’ from New Haven 1988 so it will surprise no one that I voted for ‘Painkiller’.

    • Paris Hilton

      I rocked the fuck out of Priest on tape cassette. Gotta love the fucking classics!

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

        I only own two Judas Priest albums and they’re on vinyl or CD. I do own some good albums on tape though such as White Lion and Pro Pain.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

      I voted for myself. Even though that album sucked that song was good so I submitted it.

      • Death

        You shouldn’t vote for yourself!

        • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

          I did. What are you going to do about it?

          • Death

            Remember those 10 years we talked about? I’m taking them from your life.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            I don’t care. I still like Styx though.

          • Death

            It’s 20 years now.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            I like Foreigner, Boston, Toto and Aerosmith as well. Does that make it 60 years?

          • you gain 3 years for Toto.

          • Death

            Nope

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            Yes I do. Toto fucking rules. Their guitarist is a beast.

          • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

            yea, steve lukather has played on HUNDREDS of albums. One of the most prolific session musicians in rock history, if not the most prolific. We have talked about this before i believe. Eddie Van Halen and him are good friends. He can come in and nail down solos in any genre of music and with little to no preparation. Guy is a genius of the first order when it comes to a six string.

          • VVorld Peace
          • Lady SteelDragon

            this song is so good.

          • VVorld Peace

            The best.

          • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

            What about rosanna ?

          • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

            I hear old aeorsmith on sirius xm and i think to myself , you know these guys were REALLY good once. The last thing i liked from them was done with mirrors (85). I am just flabbergasted how a band can forget how to make good music. When you count them up they only have about 4 or 5 great albums.

  • B00mhauer

    I like to play that Savatage bit to my girlfriend because it irritates the shit out of her. BUT SHE ALSO DOESN’T LIKE DIO, SO FUCK HER.

    • DUMP HER WITH STEEL.

    • RustyShackleford

      I told you she was good for nothing B00mhaeur!! Rusty knows best. Yep!

        • RustyShackleford

          I hear ya B00mhauer. Yep.

  • Stockhausen

    Guys, I love all of you, but these are mostly lame choices. Whitechapel may also be lame, but this growl at 22 seconds is unstoppable, and an easy choice.

            I was almost excited, but then I saw that it was the shitty Ghost.

          • aw man, love me some Ghost! aw crap, go ahead @metaphysicalanus:disqus take a few years off….

          • Death

            I’m not even surprised anymore

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            Ghost is good though! They’re like a Satanic Blue Oyster Cult. Let me guess, you hate the immortal Blue Oyster Cult as well?

          • Death

            Yeeees

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            Why Death? Why do you hate Blue Oyster Cult? They’re so good!

          • Death

            Why are you surprised? I hate a lot of things.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            How many years have you taken so far?

          • VVorld Peace

            At this point, he’s started taking your parents’ years.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            I’m still alive though.

          • Death

            Give it a few days.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            I’m not going to die. I know I’m not.

          • Death

            Well you’re gonna be disappointed one day.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            I meant I’m not dying in a few days. I have plans next Saturday with a friend so I can’t die in a few days.

          • Death

            Cancelled, owing to Death

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            Does that mean I’ll be able to see my best friends on Saturday? Yay!

          • Death

            Gosh, you did not see The Seventh Seal reference. It means that the meeting with your friends has been cancelled, owing to Death.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            No it hasn’t. I’ve never even heard of The Seventh Sealed.

          • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

            you should like them. Their song don’t fear the reaper is about suicide. Many couple died romantically together driving off cliffs due to that song. It’s a dark classic, kind of a shakespearian tale of love & death. Should be right up your alley.

          • KJM

            I like both Ghost and Blue Oyster Cult.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            I do too. They both rule.

          • KJM

            I discovered Blood Ceremony thanks to Ghost taking them on tour.

          • Tom Waits For Better Days

            Only thing good in this is Roky Erickson.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            I love his album The Evil One and his work with the 13th Floor Elevators is amazing.

          • Stockhausen

            Nanny nanny boo boo!

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            omg the lightning fast screen cap.

          • wow you actually capped it lol

    • God

      I almost entered a whitechapel track into this. Phil is one of the best vocalists in the deathcore genre.

      • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

        i say this with love.

    • shame ’bout the music doe

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

        I have no problem with Whitechapel. I liked their new album.

      • Stockhausen

        I can tolerate their first and second albums in small doses for some of the fun riffs and Phil’s voice, but anything past that has just the worst, inane, tuff-guy tropes (musically and lyrically) and it just kills me. Phil wrote the following lyrics, and is 100% serious: “We left our homes to infect the world, and addict you all to this deep south heat.” He actually thought those were good words to write.

    • Edward #negrod4eva

      Lifestalker, lame choice?!?!

    • Call the Slambulance

      Dude, Whitechapel’s first two albums are so stellar.

    • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

      oy vey !

  • Stockhausen

    And this opening scream from the new Merda Mundi album: unflushable.

    http://youtu.be/WE6pjoHgTmE?t=1m5s

  • Stockhausen

    This scream by Tom Waits that creeps in around 2:51. Yes.

    http://youtu.be/lWL9mZ91Dvo?t=2m50s

    • B00mhauer

      I’m real keen on this album. Really like ‘Sins of my Father’. Also, HOIST THAT RAG

      • Stockhausen

        Absolutely! Hoist That Rag is one of my favorites from this album. I’m a huge Waits fanatic and I love the staples like Swordfishtrombones, Bone Machine, Mule Variations, etc, but I always come back to Real Gone. What a monster album.

  • Paris Hilton

    Vote for me! Know who wouldn’t vote for me? A middle aged woman who has awful tattoos, spends all day at her favorite bar, and listens to Canned Heat. Don’t be a middle aged drunk woman who listens to Canned Heat. Make the right choice.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

      I liked Canned Heat though! Future Blues is a great album!

    • Stockhausen

      Canned Heat, the multi percussion solo?

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDopBUifZko

      • Paris Hilton

        Very impressive! Mirin the sock feet too.

    • Sounds like those Comcast commercials with Charlie Sheen.

    • Johnny James McCrunchy

      I voted for you Paris, ,eanwhile only 1 vote so far for Corpsegrinders opening scream in Devoured By Vermon has me losing faith with some of these toilet dwellers 🙁

    • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

      Metalheads have ALWAYS taken themselves too seriously. I was taking myself too seriously in 1981. I was a rush elitist of the first order. Still am i guess.

  • Brock Samson gets the McNulty vote. but MAN, @disqus_4E0xQtrX2p:disqus you had to go and put CD in there. i’m a terrible person for passing up that song, as it is amazebro. having said that, Tod Huetet Uebel.
    @thecultoftheblueoyster:disqus i need to make a confession: i fucking hate that album but the scream you picked was very, very trill.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

      It’s such a good scream, isn’t it Jimmy?

  • The Satan Ov Hell

    VOTE FOR SATAN, GOLD IF YOU DO!

  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    Anaal Nathrakh. ‘Nuff said.

  • MoshOff

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks Prisoners is a masterpiece. I have a feeling that the new The Agonist record is gonna be kinda meh…

    • I’m not a fan of their new vocalist at all.

  • Elite Extremöphile

    the BEST scream is at 11:20 here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x78xRybuD_c

  • Gvacamole Jim

    Jack Bauer gets my vote today, because despite that scream sounding like a horrifying frog/cricket hybrid, it was unique.

  • VVorld Peace

    Poor Ripper Owens gets too much flak. I dig his opening banshee shriek in this song.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMOtwk9oXjA

  • Woohoo, my submission got posted! I feel moist, juicy and engorged all at the same time!

  • JWG

    I am disappointed in the lack of Sigh up in here this week. So:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXBjAtsLviQ

    Mirai’s raspy howl that emphasizes his vocal entry point into the tune just grabs me any time. Then add to that the potential for this tune to win any ‘normal’ ROTW with either of those two guitar parts.

    • Johnny James McCrunchy

      Don’t know about Infidel Art, maybe Chinese Restaurant Art

    • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

      If only they were children they would be a worldwide sensation.

  • sweetooth0

    I woulda went with either of these for Cannibal Corpse
    Mutation of the Cadaver scream starts at 1:56
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWr38hl6pmA
    Hung and Bled sceam starts at 2:27
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzoFFvCK9Vg

    • Johnny James McCrunchy

      The reasoning was that this scream was my first introduction to Corpsegrinder.

  • zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    hooray for drunk chicks—

    “squeal like a pig”—here’s a classic hollywood scream

    watch all 3 full vol—or just 1 and 2—-or just 1 and 3

  • The Battle Born NDN

    Woods of Ypres!!!

  • Tom Waits For Better Days

    Despite the effort I couldn’t vote for myself and went with ellipsis.

  • Akercocke ov Steele

    Yup voted for Razor. Of course I would’ve saved Razor for Next week tho 🙁

    • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

      More canadian awesomeness. Now we need some exciter and slaughter.

  • Renan Ribeiro

    Essa música do Brutal Truth é um tesão, pqp!

    I’m having a hard time listening to the rest of the submissions because I keep hitting the replay button on the Brutal Truth video.

  • Renan Ribeiro

    Great list this week, it’s a tough choice… I’m a sucker for anything Neurosis, Martin Van Drunen is one of my favorite metal vocalists and both Savatage and Tool’s songs are awesome.

  • Lacertilian

    @webb71:disqus – That sounded like the mating call of a forlorn Predator.
    Coolstorybro – I had a inkling this would be submitted by somebody.
    GL – lololololololololololololololololololololololololololololololololololololololololol
    @James_Jimmy_McNulty:disqus – I like this, never heard it before.
    @disqus_4E0xQtrX2p:disqus – Voted!

  • Lacertilian

    Really surprised at the lack of Araya or some Vektor screams here.

  • No love for bloodsimple? http://youtu.be/pjDse2lXqyE?t=2m30s

    • Lacertilian

      I remember those guys from somewhere one time.

  • Xan

    So, I’ve done several paint comics for my own enjoyment using paint. It seems as if it would be something you all would enjoy. I shall be posting one every Saturday here:

  • Lacertilian

    @masterlordsteeldragon:disqus what about a theme idea of best metal riff featured in a movie?
    Would have to stipulate that it is not only on the soundtrack but in the actual film and that it is not the trill riff from Angel Of Death featured in Gremlins 2 (Would obviously win hands down).

  • Hallo everyone! I’m enjoying my free weekend in my little Link Crib in some crazy Lost Woods Venezuela. And I came by to pick my vote for Mr. Detective for being brave enough to bring The Agonist here. I think Alissa is a good vocalist, and I enjoy his work in Arch Enemy, but I really dislike The Agonist. END OF STATEMENT.

  • Simon PhoenixKing

    My vote goes to Masterlord again. Tyrannizer is a she-beast.

    Also, about next week’s theme? Ya’ll done fucked up now. IT’S ON, BITCHES!!!

  • No love for Paul Di’Anno’s screaming on his new DVD?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqswy6BC4oM

    Take that, Halford! Nyeah!

  • B00mhauer

    My girlfriend got butthurt about my comment and deleted it. NOT EVEN LYING.

  • Tyree

    HAIL Asphyx!

    • CONANtheMomsenFuckingKING

      Martin Van Drunen is my personal savior. I also wish he was my dad.

  • FeelTheDarkness

    I voted for Neurosis of course just because I have heard every Halford scream ever but Neurosis is just aaaarrggggghhhhhh

  • D. Lee

    Neurosis >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  • Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo

    Neurosis wins hands down

  • Brouroboris

    Cattle decapitation wins for overall performance. However Brock Samson gets my +1.

  • BLVKKBEVRD DVRKWORK

    I dont know how long it was that I slept but it was a long time. I’m awake now.

  • Hayden Clifford
