Best Groove Metal Vocalists


The Top Ten

1 Phil Anselmo Phil Anselmo Philip Hansen "Phil" Anselmo is an American musician who is best known as the former lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Pantera. He currently is the vocalist of heavy metal bands Down and Superjoint Ritual.

Listen to any song pantera has done like cemetery gates or walk but lamb of god are the masters of groove metal now due to the death of dimebag...R.I. P dimebag

No way he should be 1

Should be number 1 - christangrant

2 Randy Blythe Randy Blythe David Randall "Randy" Blythe is the vocalist and lyricist of American heavy metal band Lamb of God and side-project band Halo of Locusts.

He is better than phil in my mind :) but phil is the 2nd best groove metal and pantera are masters of groove metal :) but I love randy blythe more - nooreldeen

He is the best metal vocalist of all time

Lamb of god is the best

He's the Chuck Schuldiner of groove metal.

#8? Max Cavalera Number 8? He can sing anything, Death/Thrash Metal Groove Metal, how can Phil Anselmo be at the top of this list? - GREYBOYY

This guy and Max Cavalera should do a collab song together, it would be awesome - christangrant

6 Joe Duplantier Joe Duplantier Joseph "Joe" Duplantier is a French musician best known as the guitarist and vocalist of metal band Gojira.

Joe is definitely an underrated vocalist. His stuff is just amazing with Gojira.

This list is the same as mine right now:
1 - Randy Blythe
2 - Phil Anselmo
3 - Joe Duplantier

Gojira are Kick-ass... Hear Vacuity-Flying Whales-L'enfant Savauge, Adartion For None, BackBone, To Sirius, Wolf Down The Earth, The Axe, Gift Of Guilt, Born In Winter.. And you will know that vocalist is extremely underrated.. - nooreldeen

14 Mark Hunter
15 Michael Poulsen Michael Poulsen Michael Sch√łn Poulsen is a Danish vocalist and guitarist. He is currently the singer and main songwriter of the band Volbeat.

I can't exactly agree that Blythe is the best vocalist " of all time". He's good, but far from the best. But anyway, I like Poulsen because he has such a unique voice. Even in his old band Dominus he sung death metal vocals. Give either a try. For Volbeat, listen to A Warrior's Call, Still Counting, or The Hangman's body count. For Dominus, listen to Tears In Black, Next Living Obliging or The Call. Michael Poulsen is an amazing and underrated vocalist just to put it simply. - MetalFoREVer1228
