The music industry has had difficulties since COVID-19 canceled the studio recording. However, in the new normal of over-changing restrictions and regulations, one thing that has not changed is the appetite for creating more metal music.
Maybe you need someone to lay down some beats, add instrumentation, or record vocals, not to worry. Below are the three best sites that will help you hire metal musicians to help you add screams, blast beats, or guitar riffs to your songs.
Fiverr was established in 2010 to sell different services, including creative writing, song composition, business marketing, software marketing, and more.
As it is the number one platform of micro-jobs, here you will find metal musicians playing all genres and instruments.
You will find talented musicians on Fiverr at an affordable price with a quick turnaround, but take your time to find a suitable musician since you will also find a lot of amateurs. It is advisable to ask for a sample to weed out metal musician wannabes!
Fiverr has an app, so you can use it on your smartphone and hire a musician at any time.

Easy to navigate
A lot of armatures since there is no vetting

Not exclusively dedicated to music
SoundBetter, was owned by Spotify (Spotify sells SoundBetter back to founders in october 2021) , is one of the most well-known platforms among musicians worldwide. Their reservoir of talent includes Emmy, Oscar, and Grammy winners, and they have thousands of reviews. The website is curated with top music talent and is suited for pro and semi-pro with a reasonable budget.
Here you can hire a metal musician for a fee, including performers, producers, mastering engineers, and performers. However, you will most likely pay more; for example, a session of vocal work is around $200 to $250 on average for a single song.
There are many metal musicians but really few in the underground genres, including death, black, and grindcore. Here is my profile!

3. Metal for Hire
Metal for hire gives you exclusive access to heavy metal’s premiere musicians from bands like Soilwork, Megadeth, Symphony X, Nile, Overkill, Fear Factor, and more. In addition, you will find services like session musicians, lessons, live musicians, artwork, and many more.
The website is an excellent place to hire a celebrity to add some screams and growls to your songs but be ready to part with big bulk and to wait for a while for responses since most musicians are swamped up with other projects. Please check out my profile!
