Kreator is my favorite thrash band overall, but his vocals have alway been spotty. He kicks ass on alot of the classic stuff, Coma is the best Kreator record in terms of vocals.

I just prefer the raspy vocals, I guess. I also pretty much ignore all Kreator inbetween Coma and Violent. :lol:

Really, I don't like older Testament vocals, the Low-to-Gathering stuff is pretty great though.

Raspy? Angelripper is raspy, mille is not :p Mille definitely has a cool quality to his voice though. It just hasn't aged as well.

The thing with Mille is that he holds the last letter in his linessssssssssss and it sounds like he's hisssssinggga on the studio tracks at the end of every line. This is most noticable post-Violent Revolution.

Tom Araya. :wub:

Unless maybe we're just talking about raw vocal talent, in which case perhaps it has to go back to Mr. Billy. Still, Slayer was always the quintessential thrash vocal sound for me (after I moved past Metallica). Just solid yelling and noise making.

If you're talking about thrash bands that had technically good singers, there's
-Forbidden
-Realm
-Imagika
-Liege Lord

etc.

Know who's really underrated as far as thrash vocalists go, but is fucking downright evil? Don Doty. Darkness Descends is INSANE.
