Harsh vocals: J.R. Hayes from Pig Destroyer
Guitar: Jeff Loomis
Bass: Les Claypool (always, forever)
Drums: Danny Carey
Overall musician: Trent Reznor

All great musicians, but if they every formed a supergroup it would be fucking terrible. Imagine the solo from This Godless Endeavor, with some weird fretless bass slapping and some guy screaming his head off about some girl wearing a slayer jacket.

I'd do honorable mentions but there's just too many.

YES! :rocker:

John and Jason Netherton were also a great combo too. I've always loved that high/low tradeoff vocal style Dying Fetus has incorporated.
