I'm not even gonna try to top that, since that whole inward-breathing thing sounds like a black hole feeding on a giant star. I will, however, load the thread up with more awesome wails.

0:00

1:18

0:20

Actually, I will top it:


3:54

Ok, for some reason I can't find a version on Youtube where the opening scream isn't cut off, but the opening falsetto "Metaaaaaaaaaaallllllll!!!!!!!!!!!" on Dream Evil's "The Book of Heavy Metal" deserves a nod for sheer badass absurdity.

Also, that DOES sound more like a raptor than a person. :lol:

I think what differentiates a shriek or wail from a raptor scream is the melodic content. For example, most Kind Diamond or Halford wails are pitched to fit the harmonic content of the song. This is not the case with Anaal Nathrakh for example.

Ripper is a great vocalist, shame he has never been on anything that is really musically inspiring.


5:15ish

I fucking love that song. But it's totally a guilty pleasure, you feel so unclean after listening to it.

If you crave ridiculous falsetto openings, this is always a good one.

Anaal Nathrakh has been getting melodic as shit lately, by Anaal Nathrakh standards.


Of course for those of us truly kvlt, The Codex Necro is still the only worthwhile album.

joining what seems to be an all boys club here but check out big bad wolf by in this moment. At 3:39 this is the most shrill controlled banshee scream I've ever heard recorded.
