Best Heavy Metal Harsh Vocalists

A list that should contain some of the most talented, unique and original harsh vocalists in heavy metal music. By the end of it as per usual the more popular vocalists will dominate this list (this is out of my control) but here it is anways.

DON'T THINK OF THE ORIGINAL TOP TEN AS HAVING A PARTICULAR ORDER IT DOES NOT. I'm hoping by the end of this that you will decide.

I purposely left out some KEY vocalists hoping they will be added by you.

The Top TenXW

1Muhammad Suicmez (Necrophagist)
