Part four of a five part series I am doing this week that captures Amazing Screams. Each day I will add a new photo of a featured artist and their classic scream.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, this one’s worth a million. Tom Araya had the most incredible range of intensity to his screams. One second, you could swear his soul is being cast straight down into the fiery pits of Hell, and then another, he rages with such wild intensity that you’re sure he’s actually summoning an army of demons to rise up and attack the world. There are many to choose from, but if I had to pick my all-time favorite Araya Scream, the one that truly captures the feeling and power that Tom pours out, I’d go with his opening scream on Angel of Death.

Photographed with my old Canon F1 camera and a cheap, no name 70-200mm lens. Shot on Kodak Ektachrome film.
