So what metal singers today would you like to see go on American Idol, or the European equivalents. I personally would love to see the judges try and say that Mikael from Opeth, or Jari from Wintersun have a bad voice, because they can freaking sing, and scream. So who would you like to see go on?

I thought this was going to be about the people who try out on the show who purposely go in there and growl/scream, not because they think they'll get in, but to prove how badassed they are..

Yeah, well this was inspired from those. I was watching some right now, and I was wondering what would happened if some real badass metal singers go on.

Edit: To Jc13, Yeah Warrel Dane from Nevermore! I can't believe I forgot him. Also Matt Barlow from Iced Earth now in Pyramaze.

ICS Vortex, Warrel Dane, Jari Maenpaa, Akerdfelt, Stu Block, Carlos Zema, Hansi Kursch, Matt Barlow, Devin Townshend, Bruce Dickinson, Lord Worm, and Christian Älvestam.

Another good one I would like to see just for the lulz would definitely have to be Varg from Burzum, that would be awesome, or maybe Abbath in his corpse paint and armour.

This got me thinking, I wonder how a group of Idol judges would respond to a truly good growler/scremer/etc? The ones they have seen are horrible and they have seen one (the black metal guy) who was average at best.

Would they **** them self? Shoo him off as rubbish? Or just point him to a local metal venue?

Tony Kakko of Sonata Arctica, Warrel Dane, and Hansi (with his voce from a few years ago...he's starting to sound a lil old)

Sorry to double post, but Varg is an absolutely horrible singer (practically painful to listen to, and I enjoy a wide range of the growl spectrum). The only reason he gets by is it fits the feel of the music perfectly, and he puts so much emotion into his voice.
#12
^Yeah, Varg's scream isn't my favorite, but I think his is unique, and has a lot of emotion in it. Also to VampireGoldfish, yeah I want to know what would happen if an awesome screamer of growler went on that show. I would love to see Mikael Stanne go on, because he has one of the best screaming voices in my opinion. Finally I would love to see Tim from Ne Obliviscaris go on, because he is amazing, and easily my new favorite clean vocalist when it comes to metal.

#13
Well, if they had really awesome clean vocals, I'm sure they'd let them through to the next round.

I can't really think of any singers that I would want to see go on. It would be cool to see a person who could sing amazingly as well as be really good at screaming and growling on those Idol shows though.

Overall, I would like a full on Metal Assault. A singer from all different spectrum's and styles and techniques. All one after another, hell I would pay to see that.

There are a LOT of people who can growl and sing amazingly and they are very high on my list of people I would want to see.

Especially Stu Block .

I think Barlow could probably stand a chance period. But i'd like to see King go and see how they react. Then see how he reacts.
#18
Just for the lulz, Dani Filth.

Serious answer, I'd like to see Jason Mendonca from Akercocke go and see how he does. His growls aren't that great but I like his clean vocals.

get James LaBrie up there to sing "Wait For Sleep"
sure he isn't really good 'metal' singer but that song has one of the best vocal performances ever


I'd love to hear David Vincent growl "Hatework" too, he'd crush the judges with his voice

or just get Russell Allen there, he would be the winner no matter what he'd sing

1. American Idol is the 'equivalent' of Pop Idol which was originally a british programme, so shh.

2. There's a video of a guy on I think the german equivalent going on and doing BM vocals. Find it.

^Swedish version. And one of the judges said that he thought he was really good. He sang a Dimmu Borgir song, IIRC.

Fair enough lol. I haven't watched it in ages, and I couldn't understand the judges but I thought they were decent vox too.

Dio, Sebastian Bach, Phil Anselmo (singing), and James Hetfield would probably pass through to the finals, and I bet Sebastian and Dio could win if they entered as normal guys and not metal stars.

Hetfield would NOT make it to the finals. His voice is really bad now, and I know it is because he blew it out. He used to be good, but not so much anymore.
