** Tägtgren is a master of the metal scream and pulls them out frequently in his main band [[Music/{{Hypocrisy}} Hypocrisy]]. For further evidence, see this one 19 seconds into [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IE8hAOLy9vs#t=19s "Warpath"]] and the several screams in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ucq-t02EyOw "Tales Of Thy Spineless"]]. He also lets one of his best ones out at the end of Bloodbath's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwk-QecLr2w#t=192s "Soul Evisceration"]].

# A hoarse, bellowing mid-register sort of roar, as exemplified by [[Music/{{Pantera}} Phil Anselmo]], [[Music/{{Slayer}} Tom Araya]], [[FearFactory Burton C. Bell]], [[Music/{{Unearth}} Trevor Phipps]], [[Music/TheRedChord Guy Kozowyk]], and [[Music/{{Slipknot}} Corey Taylor]].
# An [[HarshVocals animal-like]], [[BadassBaritone extremely low-pitched growl]], as exemplified by [[CannibalCorpse George Fisher]], [[Music/{{Suffocation}} Frank Mullen]], [[Music/{{Whitechapel}} Phil Bozeman]], [[Music/{{Behemoth}} Nergal]], [[Music/{{Devourment}} Ruben Rosas]], and [[Music/{{Deicide}} Glen Benton]].
# A phlegmy, almost gagging sort of scream, of mid to high pitch, as exemplified by [[Music/{{DarkTranquillity}} Mikael Stanne]], [[Music/{{Emperor}} Ihsahn]], [[Music/{{Eyehategod}} Mike Williams]], [[Music/AtTheGates Tomas Lindberg]], [[Music/{{DimmuBorgir}} Shagrath]] and [[Music/{{Carcass}} Jeff Walker]].
# A very loud, high-register "clean" singing style, done either as a single scream or short burst, or to construct an entire melody, (it even warrants [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screaming_(music) an article]] on TheOtherWiki) as exemplified by [[Music/JudasPriest Rob Halford]], [[Music/IronMaiden Bruce Dickinson]], [[Music/{{Queensryche}} Geoff Tate]], [[Music/{{Manowar}} Eric Adams]], Music/KingDiamond, and [[Music/{{Watchtower}} Jason McMaster]].

Added DiffLines:

* Geoff Tate of Music/{{Queensryche}} used this in his prime.
** The EPIC opening scream to "Queen of the Reich" as well as the choruses. "It belongs, to queen of the REIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICH!"
** The opening bars of "Nightrider", followed by an EvilLaugh.
** "FLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!" from "Take Hold of the Flame"
** The climactic high G from "Roads to Madness"
** "NEUE REGEL IS HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!" from "Neue Regel", sustained for over 10 seconds!
** "We are FUTUURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRE!" from "Chemical Youth" (We Are Rebellion)
** Similar to Rush, most songs in the '80s get pretty close to screaming throughout. Apart from the aformentioned examples there's also "En Force", "Before The Storm", "London", "Gonna Get Close to You", "Revolution Calling", "Suite Sister Mary" and "Eyes of a Stranger".

Added DiffLines:

* Geddy Lee of Music/{{Rush}} was ''very'' good at this in his prime.
** "YEAH, OOOOOOOOH YEAH!" from "Finding My Way", as well as "OOOH YEAH, OOOH YEAH, FINDING MY WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!"
** "WONDERS IN THE WORLD THEY! WROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUGHT!" from "Anthem"
** "Square, for, BATTLE!" and "OOOOH YEAH!" from "By-Tor And The Snow Dog"
** "LISTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN!" from "The Fountain Of Lamneth"
** "No matter what your dreams might, BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEYAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" from "Something For Nothing"
** "OOOOH! PARADIIIIIIIIIIIIISE!" from the end of "Xanadu"
** "Closer to the HEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAART! YEAH!" from "Closer to the Heart" as well as even more in the outro.
** "Cygnus X-1" might be the pinnacle of this. "Until the black hole, GAINS CON-TROL!" "Like a spiral, SEA UNENDING!", and, of course, "Every nerve is, TORN APAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAART!" The last one is the highest note in his career, a B-flat below ''Soprano C''.
** In general, the majority of Rush's '70s music gets very close to screaming. Prime examples include "Bastille Day", "2112" and "Cygnus X-1".

* This isn't as common in female-fronted metal bands as in male-fronted bands, but there are certainly a fair share of examples. Arch Enemy and The Agonist have already been mentioned above; Astarte, Derkéta, Mythic, Darkestrah (until 2014), Gallhammer, and Music/{{Sigh}} (since 2010 as part of a VocalTagTeam) provide additional examples, and use this trope almost exclusively. [[LarynxDissonance Some of these probably wouldn't be discernible as female vocals if you didn't know what to listen for]]. Julie Christmas is also very good at this, although she doesn't use it exclusively.

Julie Christmas is also very good at this, although she doesn't use it exclusively. Liv Jagrell of Sister Sin has a scream-heavy singing style. In the ''Black Lotus'' album alone, nearly half the songs include at least one metal scream, typically either a type two or a type four, though sometimes she lets loose with a type one as well.

# A very loud, high-register "clean" singing style, done either as a single scream or short burst, or to construct an entire melody. (it even warrants [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screaming_(music) an article]] on TheOtherWiki) [[Music/JudasPriest Rob Halford]] is the standard by which all other users of this type are measured (some may also use [[Music/IronMaiden Bruce Dickinson]] as standard). Vibrato (like [[Music/{{Queensryche}} Geoff Tate]]) or some degree of harshness (like [[Music/{{Manowar}} Eric Adams]]) may be added for flavor.

** "There Was A Time" has a window-shattering scream around the 5-minute mark.

* While they're the TropeNamer for CarefulWithThatAxe, Music/PinkFloyd's "Careful with That Axe, Eugene" arguably isn't a straight example of that trope since the song's vocals consist, apart from the whispered title and a brief use of {{scatting}} at the end, of nothing but screams. For about one to four straight minutes, depending on the version. Most of the other times the band used screams they did fall closer to CarefulWithThatAxe, though.



* Music/{{Opeth}} uses type 2. A few songs are type 3.

* Music/{{Opeth}} uses type 2. A few songs are type 3.3, mostly towards the start of their career when they had more BlackMetal influence.
