You may know Caleb Shomo from banging his head off while fronting Beartooth, but that's not the only place he has let his vocal talents roam free. Here are 12 of the best tracks that he has appeared on over the years.
MY TICKET HOME – 'DEAD WEIGHT'
My Ticket Home have taken on so many different forms during their time as a band. Back in 2010 though they were delivering brutality at the height of Rise Record's post-hardcore dominance with Caleb sat behind the production desk. He also lends his vocals to this fruity number.
SEAWAY – 'SCATTER MY ASHES ALONG THE COAST OR DON'T'
You didn't think that Caleb just leant his tones to heavy bands did you? You silly goose. Here he is crooning soulfully over this slab of sunshine stained loveliness courtesy of Seaway.
TEAR OUT THE HEART – 'UNDEAD ANTHEM'
Caleb really goes all in on this devestating banger from St Louis' own Tear Out The Heart., another band he manned the production desk for. Slowly letting his voice unfurl before letting all hell break loose on your eardrums. It doesn't get much purer than that, does it?
GIDEON – 'SURVIVE'
The unhinged tones of Caleb's voice suit the punishing style of Gideon's melodic hardcore perfectly, which is what makes this concrete slab of riffing so irresistible. A match made in heaven? Oh, you bet.
CROSSFAITH – 'GHOST IN THE MIRROR'
In many ways Beartooth and Crossfaith deal in the same sort of debauchery, so having Caleb slot neatly into the folds of this pummelling number just makes sense.
I AM ABOMINATION – 'ASCENSION'
Brilliantly melodic and intricately woven, this is a bit different to what Caleb is used to. Yet that doesn't stop him from delivering another stellar performance with those crystal pipes.
CITY LIGHTS – 'I MADE A SONG ON GARAGE BAND AND ALL I GOT WAS A LOUSY RECORD DEAL'
Fun fact for you, Beartooth bassist Oshie Bichar and guitarist Kameron Bradbury both cut their teeth with these cult easycore merchants. Only seems right that Caleb would get in on some of that sweet breakdown action then.
WOE, IS ME – 'WITH OUR FRIEND[S] BEHIND US'
Woe, Is Me's second album was chock full of more defiant lyricism and spine snapping riffs than most bands deliver in their whole career. On top of that Caleb made an appearance that would make the most shy of listeners want to mosh their whole family into the ground.
LEGEND – 'SHADOW STALKER'
Caleb Shomo and brutality just go together don't they? Jelly and ice cream. Fish and chips. Mosh pits and spin kicks. Meant to be together forever. If that wasn't enough, Caleb also lended a hand in writing and composing the album this brutal banger appears on.
IN FEAR AND FAITH – 'THE SOLITARY LIFE'
Featured on an EP that also featured guest vocals from Nick Martin, Telle Smith and Craig Owens, Caleb was in illustrious company when he stretched his vocal chords over this beauty.
SYLAR – 'SCHEME ARTIST'
Did you know that Caleb would later lend his production expertise on Sylar's debut full-length 'To Whom It May Concern'. Here though, he just contributes to the utter chaos with that voice of his.
THE DEAD RABBITTS – 'MAKE ME BELIEVE IT'
This Craig Mabbitt led project was full of absolutely wonderful surprises. In the case of this bludgeoning number, it was Mr Shomo having a bash at that wonderful chorus.
