Philip Anselmo vs. Barney Greenway – Greatest Metal Frontman, Round 1

Philip Anselmo vs. Barney Greenway
Spencer Kaufman, Loudwire / Facebook: Napalm Death

Philip Anselmo and Barney Greenway are both madmen onstage in this heavyweight fight in Round 1 of our Greatest Metal Frontman tournament!

Pantera were known for their crushing live performances, which often saw singer Philip Anselmo leaping off various items onstage. His banshee-like wail was matched with the intensity of his demeanor, acting more animal than human. He has also cemented his legacy as one of metal’s finest in such bands as Down, Superjoint Ritual and recently as a solo act.

Barney Greenway of Napalm Death has a frightening vocal bark and is only half of the equation when it comes to this frontman. He often looks like he is fighting a ghost onstage or throwing a tantrum between his politically infused shouted lyrics.

Philip Anselmo or Barney Greenway? Cast your vote for the Greatest Metal Frontman in the poll below! Voting for this round closes on Sunday, Nov. 3 at 11:59PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour, so keep coming back to make sure that your favorite metal musician wins!
