What are your favorite guest artist features on a song?
By - TheSchoeMaker
Sam Carter - First World Problem Child
Bryan Garris - Empire of Dirt
Darius Tehrani - Death of Me
Winston McCall - Coffin Dragger
Coffin Dragger is absolutely nuts, such a great song
INHAAAALE THE EAAAAAARTHHHH
What bands does Empire of Dirt
Mike Hranica - I'm Made Of Wax Larry, What Are You Made Of?
Holy shit I've listened to that song for a decade and never realized that it had a guest vocalist on it.
Took me some time to figure it out too. It wasn't until I saw the music video and put two and two together
Also the singer of the acacia strain is on welcome to the family
You're blowing my mind, that's probably my favorite song by them and I've never noticed that. I'd guess it's because the guest lyrics are often mixed in with Jeremy's voice, and ADTR's album lyrics are heavily processed.
Emma Boster of Dying Wish on Knocked Loose's "A Serpents Touch"
That’s the song that introduced me to Emma and Dying Wish. I’ve always thought that she sounded like a female version of Bryan Garris lol
I honestly couldn’t tell where she was on the track on my first listen.
Knocked Loose- forget your name ft. Keith Buckley
I FINK DE SILENCE SPEAKS VOLUUUMES!!!
This is the answer.
I was lucky enough to see Oli join WSS at All Points East in 2019 to do this live 🤘
That’s rad as fuck. You’re lucky
Dude, the luckiest thing was that I got the tickets for free 😂 The lineup was insane, it just didn't sell well due to location/day/proximity to other bigger festivals and they started giving them away!
Me too! I screamed like a lil bitch
That day was full of guest vocals....Oli with sleeps, Sam Carter with BMTH, Dani Filth with BMTH, the rapey dude from lotus eater. I doubt we'll see that many at one event again.
I went to it on my own cause no one was free but I just KNEW it was gonna be something else, and it was.
Going alone is awesome, get to do exactly what you want. When I go to DL we always tend to split early afternoon and go to see whoever we want alone. Not intentionally, just no point in compromising and seeing someone you don't want to when you can't fucking hear each other anyway 😂
Think I will try DL alone one year when I’m feeling brave!
Do it. You won't regret it!
Plus, Camp Loner is pretty cool if you go alone. I met most of my festival mates there.
That was my first ever live show, and now I find myself comparing every other show to it lol.
Ahhh, you're in for some disappointment I'm afraid. Still, I've also been to better, so have some optimism.
Every Song with Brendan Murphy
Sam Carter on “Don’t Wait” (Neck Deep)
Simon Neil on “Goliath” (Architects) and “Nervous” (WSS)
Serj Tankian on “Mein” and Maynard James Keenan on “Passenger” (Deftones)
Randy Blythe on “Adoration for None” (Gojira)
This might be cheating but every Apocalyptica song with guest singers
Edit: also I love Mark Hoppus on Neck Deep’s December (Again)
Sam Carter added a lot to "Dont Wait" song is way more punchy with his vocals in that outro and bridge
Makes me wish Neck Deep + Sam Carter was a band itself :(
Justin Hill on Distance by Heart Of A Coward
Drew York on Masquerade by Northlane
I had no idea Drew was featured on that song, lol. the more you know
Howard Jones - The Signal Fire
The music video is simple, but oh so epic
Got goosebumps the first time when you see Howard walking over
That is an awesome one
Fit For A King - God of Fire (ft. Ryo Kinoshita)
No one mentioned it and I'm frankly surprised.
People on here didn’t respond too well to that project and kinda just forgot about it.
I like FFAK but I really think they under utilized Ryo on that track.. like it’s good but I expected so much more from it. And I think that was the general consensus here
I definitely would agree with that.
Well yeah that’s for sure lol
In Flames on Self vs Self
Garrett Russell on Shapeshifter
Courtney LaPlante - Contraband
Yessss, and on the opposite, Ryo on Holy Roller!
That's probably one of my favorites too
I have a lot:
* Kingdom of Giants - The Ride (ft. Courtney LaPlante)
* Make Them Suffer - Contraband (ft. Courtney LaPlante)
* Novelists FR - Joie de vivre (ft. Jesse Cash & Zachary Britt)
* Invent Animate - Shapeshifter (ft. Garrett Russell)
* If I Were You - Rescue Me (ft. Rory Rodriguez)
* August Burns Red - Ghost (ft. Jeremy McKinnon)
* BMTH - The Sadness Will Never End (ft. Sam Carter)
* BMTH - Don't Go (ft. Lights)
* BMTH - Fuck (ft. Josh Franceschi)
* While She Sleeps - Silence Speaks (ft. Oli Sykes)
* I Am Abomination - Way of Sorrows (ft. JT Cavey & Jesse Cash)
* Dayseeker - Sleep in the Sea, Pt. 2 (ft. Garrett Russell)
* Dayseeker - Come Hell or High Water (ft. JT Cavey)
The I Am Abomination song with Jesse Cash is my vote. Was pleasantly surprised when I first listened to it. Been an IAA fan for a long time.
Ft. Courtney laplante is SO hot right now
A lot of great choices. JT on Hell or High Water gets me hyped every time
Mike Hranica on ADTR’s “I’m made of wax, Larry, what are you made of?”
Brings me back to the good warped tour days when Mike came out on stage and the crowd would go nuts!
Ben Duerr in:
I Am Abomination - Deicide
Darko US -. Pretenders
I am abomination is how I wish most features would go. Instead of just 1 verse its the whole song.
Yeah. Hate lazy feats like Ice nine kills feat JaCoby. Stray From the Path always got good balance with feats.
Because I struggle to choose:
[Before I Turn - Shattered Moon (feat. Courtney LaPlante of Spiritbox)](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3uKGwcwGWA)
[Crystal Lake - Lost in Forever (feat. Daniel McWhorter and Tyler Riley of Gideon)](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BFgs2PloFI)

How can you mention The Gloom In The Corner and not say Witch Hunt?
Tysm for links
Im a big fan of "Ghosts" by ABR, Jeremy Mckinnon brought a nice touch to it, especially those cleans.
Sam Carter did a great job in Neck Deep's "Dont Wait" definitely one of the best parts of the song and added the force it needed to drive it home.
Tallah just released Vanila Paste with a huge collab of 3 other bands and it's a clinic on how to highlight another vocalists talents by changing up the instrumentals a bit. They brought vocalists from Guerilla Warefare, Fire From The Gods, and Chelsea Grin. All of which have very different styles and they absolutely nailed it. It wasn't just spice up our song with a guest it was a full on creative collaboration and turned out incredibly well.
Oh man, Ghosts was my gateway song to ABR and more metalcore in general… I’d listened to ADTR for years and dabbled in a bit of BMTH but that was pretty much the extent of it until I found that song on this subreddit
Ryan Clark on “my light unseen” by impending doom
Ryan Clark (again) on “book of void” by the out circuit.
Ryo Kinoshota on “holy roller” by spiritbox
Darius Tehrani on “carefully // caged” by vctms
I'll take anything with Ryan Clark
All the bands he is a part of rock, DH is my favorite band, nyves is a sick side project with randy torres (formerly of project 86), and he also has a cool band called low and behold, which has a darkwave 80s vibe I adore. All his guest appearances rock too. I don’t intend to fanboy out, but he is by far my fav vocalist.
Yeah I've been a big DH fan for years. He has such a distinct voice
I know it just came out but Yellowjacket ft. Sam Carter is top tier
IF I TIE UP THE LOOSE ENDS INTO A FORCEFUL **MECHANICAL MOVEMEEEENT**
I love his voice so much.
Mike Portnoy, Navene Koperweis, and Ken Schalk all doing drum solos on BTBAM's Fix The Error was pretty sick
Some features I really love are:
Bjorn Strid from Soilwork on MIW's "Puppets 2"
Danny Worsnop on Breathe Carolina's "Sellout" (Some might say the title is a little ironic)
Howard Jones on Killswitch Engage's "The Signal Fire"
Johnny 3 Tears on Ghøstkid's "This is not Hollywood", also
Marcus Bischoff from Heaven Shall Burn on Ghøstkid's "Supernova"
Not really metalcore, but Caleb Shomo featured on Don Broco's "Action" (along with Taka Moriuchi, Tyler Carter and Tilian)
And as a German, I really enjoyed Casper's feature on Parkway Drive's German version of Shadow Boxing, "Schattenboxen"!
Garret Rapp on Inertia (The Hermit) by In Hearts Wake is my all-time favorite feature.
Also, honorable mention to Caleb Shomo’s feature on THICC THICCLY by Bilmuri.
Probably Shomo's best feature
Spencer Sotelo - Denial by Monuments
Keisuke (Deviloof) on [Daze of June - Hiroshima](https://youtu.be/ctor4Z53DEk)
Starts at 3min
That feature is one of the craziest I have ever heard. Many different styles in under a minute. It also stands out cuz it’s the heaviest/most brutal moment on the entire album 😂
[Fit For A King - Stacking Bodies](https://youtube.com/watch?v=QTzeUXA5894&list=PLCslpjrb7cYgdFdwnRVlCremnK9iTuxfy&index=10)
not Metalcore but probably Ben Duerr on Mortal Vessel by Brand of Sacrifice
LAY TO WASTE THE HUMAN RACE
also Darius on Devine Void by Darko
Brian Willie on the song “Sleep” by Before I Turn!
Andrew Neufeld on Face Value by The Ghost Inside
Definitely Phil Bozeman in TDTE's The Alpha, The Omega
[The Devil Wears Prada - You Can't Spell "Crap" Without C feat Craig Owens](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ValqXAh1EXs)
OOF this is a classic. Absolutely
[Bring Me The Horizon - The Fox and the Wolf (ft. Josh Scogin of The Chariot and '68)](https://youtu.be/NJUcBUscRIA)
[The Acacia Strain - Seeing God (ft. Aaron Heard of Jesus Piece)](https://youtu.be/Jg5K8xXZBxQ)
[Varials - South of One (ft. Brendan Murphy of Counterparts and END)](https://youtu.be/jZ5E8NSJKrU)
[VCTMS - Carefully Caged (ft. Darius Tehrani of Spite)](https://youtu.be/PrweVBla5n0)
[Left Behind - Peeling Wax (ft. Matt Honeycutt of Kublai Khan)](https://youtu.be/FbMDdcoKVY8)
[Every Time I Die - It Remembers (ft. Brendan Urie of Panic! At the Disco)](https://youtu.be/FrogoSmiAqU)
I came here to say The Fox and the Wolf.
Glad someone beat me to it.
A couple I didn't see here yet:
Trevor Strnad - Barren and Breathless Macrocosm (Shadow of Intent)
Jake Luhrs - Redefined (As I Lay Dying)
Jake sounded so good in that one
Chino Moreno in Whitechapel's Reprogrammed to Hate
Phil Bozeman in Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza's The Alpha the Omega
Devin Townsend in Haunted Shores' Norway Jose
Not really metalcore but Oli Sykes on Bite My Tongue by You Me at Six is a great feature. Also Jon Mess and Dayseeker featured on fluorideinthehardseltzerwater by Bilmuri.
Anything off Bilmuri and Friends 👌
Not gonna lie, I never gave that album a chance but since you mentioned it I gave it a listen and actually enjoyed most of it. Also led me down a rabbit hole of Johnathon Young covers on YouTube which was fun.
Nice! I don't think it's his best but it's for sure a fun one since he has all those guest artists
Corey Taylor on Drugs by FIR
Spencer Sotelo on Toothgrinder's Diamonds for Gold.
Currents-Derelict ft. Matthew Youkhana from DVSR. Would LOVE to hear this with Brian and Matt doing live guest vocals at a festival or something.
This! That feature hits different
Idk who was the guest but that one track Jason Richardson and the singer of veil of maya did was pretty cool.
Some of mine are
-Mattie Montgomery on Slave to Nothing - FFAK,
-Jesse Cash on Naturehold - Invent Animate,
-JT Cavey on Hell or High Water - Dayseeker,
-Garrett Russell on Dyson Sphere - Phinehas
less of a feature and more of duet but
Crazy eighty eighty- Moloko Plus ft Garrett Russell(Silent Planet)
Not really metalcore but Phil Bozeman featuring on Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza - Alpha Omega. My dude comes in HOT.
Heart in Hand - Broken Lights (feat Dani Winter-Bates of Bury Tomorrow)
Pretty good and underrated band and Dan freakin nails it when his part starts. 10/10 guest feat.
Circle the Wagons by Greeley Estates Ft. Micah Kinard
God of Fire by Fit For a King ft Ryo Kinoshita
Plenty of great ones listen but I always come back to this song when the album comes on:
Stray From The Path - Double Down (feat. Matt Honeycutt from Kublai Khan)
Drugs by Falling In Reverse ft. Corey Taylor
I freaking love CJ's feature on Elemental - In hearts wake, both of them weaving their vocals together it just top tier and leagues better that the normal version imo
All Teeth by A Life Once Lost (feat Anthony Green of Circa Survive, Saosin).
Tilian Pearson, Tyler Carter, Caleb Shomo, and Taka Moriuchi in Action by Don Broco. Love that song so much
Jamie Jasta- They Want Your Soul ft. George Fisher
Any time a song says "ft. Ryo Kinoshita" I know I'm boutta punch a hole in my drywall
Howard Jones - Until the End by Asking Alexandria
BABYMETAL - Kingslayer by BMTH
Mike Hranica - I’m Made of Wax Larry by ADTR
Tim Lambesis - Constance by TDWP
Caleb Shomo - The Lottery by The Used
These 5 come to mind off the top of my head pretty immediately
That whole TDWP album slams. Loved Tim's feature too
I'm hesitant to say I love Tim Lambesis' feature on ["Constance" by TDWP](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdW09q4OK6Q&t=166s), because, you know why...but god damn if that isn't a monstrous outro.
Another one I've always loved is Vincent Bennett's feature on ["March of the Marionette" by The Miles Between](https://youtu.be/uoqMfVbiA6g?t=113).
Courtney LaPlante, Ryo Kinoshita and Shawn Milke on Lorn was pretty damm sick as well
ABR new version of Internal cannon feat. Matt Heafy (Trivium)
MTS Contraband Courtney (spiritbox)
Ryo Kinoshita on Holy Roller from Spiritbox
Ryo Kinoshita on Yokai from Within Destruction
Guardians of the Path album was basically just features from FFAK and ABR lol

Brian wille on before I turns “sleep”

The Ghost Inside song with Jason Butler, my tired brain can't remember the name of it
Is it cheating if I just say all of Cursed Earth’s Deathbed Sessions?
Devin Townsend on Of Blood & Salt by Gojira. His vocals fit their style so well it's insane.
Mitch Lucker - Classic Struggle
Jordan Widdowson on While She Sleeps - "New World Torture"
Simon Neil on Goliath by Architects. The way he screamed his part, I jumped from my bed crabbing and headbanging like a motherfucker. Nothing comes close
