Best Singers of All Time
« see full list
I think that Avenged Sevenfold should be better known. They are a great band! And M. Shadows is amazing!
Man if anyone can hit the notes like him at the end of "I won't see you tonight part 1", I'll bow to them. That my friend, is unreal.
Two Words... Avenged Sevenfold... None better... Never will be.
It's a tough vote to decide! I had to choose between M. Shadows and Metallica's James Hetfield. Hetfield got an amazing voice no doubt about it (I'm listening Metallica song while typing this) but Shadows got a better vocal range in my opinion. Both are great, great singer.
I'm not voting for M. To go for the top spot, but he totally deserved a better place, like top 20. The list kinda screwed.. Christina Aguilera should be place waay higher.. AXL Rose, Hetfield, Eminem, Steven Tyler, all should be no lower than 30 in my humble opinion.
M. Shadows is the best singer ever. he can scream, sing, and has a better vocal range than any other rock singer and just about any other singer ever has. how he isn't in the top ten confuses me. not many people can have vocal chord surgery and still sound as good.
listen to gunslinger, seize the day, chapter four, just about all of their songs make a7x the best band out there
His voice I must say is purely amazing. If you go back and listen to Avenged Sevenfold's earlier albums you can tell that his voice didn't have that much training, but now it's much stronger. Also around this time is where you see more and more people making slips, but Shads voice stays solid. He doesn't try to push himself to impress the fans because he wants to keep his voice clean so that we can enjoy it. He should totally be higher.
The problem with the singers ahead of Shadows (like Chester Bennington) is that many of them have strained their voice to the point where they sound terrible now. Shadows has been belting heavy vocals for 10+ years and sounds as good as ever. Truly the best live singer I've ever heard. He deserves to be higher just for that reason. LIVE PERFORMANCES MATTER!
amazing vocalist, whether its slow, gentle songs he completely owns them, and even the heavier, screamier stuff off waking the fallen and sounding the seventh trumpet are incredible, I'm not much of a screamo fan, but his vocals still sound great even for those first 2 albums... if anything I wish they still did albums like those first 2 albums
Avenged Sevenfold will always be the best band in the world, thank you guys for being a band and sticking together after jimmy passed. He was the best. Great drummer. Great song writer. Avenged Sevenfold will live foREVer!
My top ones are (all are on first place, because I can't choose, everyone of them are amazing) M. Shadows, Ville Valo, Chester Bennington, Jared Leto, Paul McCartney, Freddie Mercury, Robert Plant, Bon Jovi, Amy Lee and many others fantastic singers...
... But M. Shadows can harsh, scream too, he has beatiful clean voice also...
He's just amazing. Anyone who listens to them will understand how incredibly talented each and everyone of them is.
his voice is unique and he definitely brings something different to the plate
up there with the best. Listen to Avenged Sevenfold people, you wont be disappointed, I swear
Matt Shadows has an incredible voice. From his intense screams to the way he can control his voice in ways a lot of singers can't. He's a hardworking guy and extremely talented. My vote goes to him.
I think he is at this position because its not too much known but he is an amazing vocalist, he can change too much he's style from ballads to guturals, even he sang sweet child o mine and impresed me when I heard how he sings dificult songs like it was nothing... Sorry if I have a bad english
Come on really? 37? He has one of the best vocal ranges out there. He's got more to it than allot of the people above him in this list. I bet people don't really know him that's why he ain't up there in the list. I know what talent is, I've got a good ear for music. Apparently others don't...
M. shadows has a voice of an angel, he's awesome and his voice changes from second heartbeat to seize the day.
A7X should be much more well known! A7X fan listened to ALMOST all their songs they ever made.
Come on, Matt is literally awesome even though at the beginning the whole band wasn't so good. But at the moment I find this band as one of the best, especially Matt's voice, he can go into pop, scream, hip hop, rap, whatever, his voice still matches EVERY SINGLE SONG!
The fact than any man can sing as high, low, peacefully and grungy as he can (not to mention the screaming) means that he's talented, no questions asked. More people should listen to Avenged Sevenfold, they're like nothing else, which is helped with his vocals.
M Shadows' voice and range is amazing! He can scream with the best of them but can also sing with such emotion and quality on songs such as So Far Away and Victim that you can actually feel his pain. They give me goosebumps every time!
I'm obsessed with his music. The lyrics of his songs have a meaning, it's awesome to listen to your songs, becouse it's unique, nobady can copy your voice, because it's special, and it sounds definitely awesome, You are my HERO!
As I said about Gates, just watch any live concert of there's. He is an incredibly gifted vocalist. Not only can he scream with the best of them but he can also sing beautifully in songs like "Seize the Day" and such.
Hell no... He should much higher.. Top 20.. At least. His voice is so unique and one of the few too.. Especially in a heavy metal/hard rock band. He has improved his voice throughout the years too.. Sad to see him this low.
He has an amazing voice. Not only can he do "screamo" quite well he also has a gorgeous singing voice. Also he has the ability to hit the really powerful notes. Such versatility deserves recognition!
Seriously this low, people should be ashamed because Matt just has this incredible voice have you ever listened to it even the injury he had couldn't stop the magnificence of his voice damn this is way to low.
MATT DESERVES THE TITLE OF BEST SINGER OF OUR TIME NOT JUSTIN BEIBER OR ONE ERECTION OR THOSE CRAP BANDS, GO MATT SUPPORT YOU ALL THE WAY. LISTEN TO I WON'T SEE YOU TONIGHT PART 1 AND YOU'LL SEE THAT HE IS THE BEST!
I'm listening to Not Ready To Die right now, and I'm just thinking of how unbelievably talented he is. Because seriously, Bill Kaulitz as #19?! Uch, that guy has no talent. Matt needs to be in his place.
