188 Einar Solberg - Leprous

The fact Einar is so low on this list shows how underground leprous is. Hands down Einar is one of the greatest vocalists in metal. Hope the glory of Leprous spreads soon!

189 Paul Baloff - Exodus V 1 Comment
190 Fred Durst - Limp Bizkit Fred Durst - Limp Bizkit William Frederick "Fred" Durst is an American musician and film director. Durst is best known as the vocalist of the nu metal band Limp Bizkit, formed in 1994, with whom he has released six studio albums.

An aggressive artist. A good musician no doubt. Limp Bizkit is famous for their abrasive lyrics and crunchy musics.

He has an amazing voice. Shame he has no idea how to use it.

191 Chester Bennington - Linkin Park

Number 153? He should be N.1. Try singing as many styles as he does...

You might be kidding, chester bennington's voice is insane. At least in the top 10

What chester bennington the best on 23!

192 Joe Elliott - Def Leppard

This man is one of the torchbearer in metal world. As good as Bruce Dickinson. Although definitely Leppard is marked as a rock band (NO REAL REASON).

193 Gene Simmons - KISS Gene Simmons - KISS Chaim Witz, known professionally by his stage name Gene Simmons, is an Israeli-American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur, actor and television personality.
194 Michael Eriksen - Circus Maximus
195 Matt Tuck - Bullet for My Valentine

I don't know if you read this, but Matt, you saved my life. You're the most amazing vocalist, obviously, but your songs have covered my entire life up to this point, especially venom. That song made me cry, and made me feel like I'm not alone in this. I'm completely obsessed, head over heels, for this girl who hates me, and I'm tired of it. Venom, bittersweet memories, Alone, tears don't fall, The End, Her voice resides; your masterpieces have helped me learn that I'm in control of my life, and no stuck up snob will control me anymore. I let breaking Benjamin bull destroy me, diary of Jane, what a bunch of bull. You are a real hero,and that's why I think you should be at number one. You have inspired me musically as well. Thank you matt, for showing me hope!

Matt Tuck is an awesome vocalist thanks to his skill with the guitar and to his nice style. In all the video clips he is playing guitar even though it is very difficult to synchronize with all those complicated things but now Bullet For My Valentine are in the 15 best heavy metal bands around the world. They 're just great!

He can growl and sing melodic tracks equally well... Something rare in today's metalcore bands

A talented vocalist, which can sing differently in different songs, from really high pitch vocals on "skin" to growls on axewound's songs.he also performs amazing gutturals on broken and all these things I hate.he really should be in the top ten.he deserves a olace around mshadows and ivan moody.

197 Steve Braun - Halcyon way

Steve Braun is one of the most talented singers you will ever hear, let alone just in the metal genre. Pairing his amazing talent with this incredible band was the best thing to ever happen to metal.
Steve and Halcyon Way may be a little unknown, but that doesn't say a single thing about their talent or skill.
If you don't know this band you are missing out.

Definitely Steve is one of the most talented singers out there. Great guy, great showman, great vocalist

If there was a voice for Prog Metal, Steve would fill that category. Talent in bucket-loads and an amazing dude to match.

The undiscovered gem of American vocalists. He could replace some of the best in the business. I was honored to work with him and I am happy to see him finally starting to get the recognition he deserves.

198 Oliver Sykes - Bring Me The Horizon

He's real good with Sempiternal (especially b-side track "Deathbeds"), but with previous material and the fact he's damaged his cords, him being on this list is surprising even if he's "totally sexy piece of tattooed body ever (sic)"

Totally sexy piece of tattooed body ever! He's from bring my the horizon

199 Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson Brian Hugh Warner, better known by his stage name Marilyn Manson, is an American musician, songwriter, actor, painter, multimedia artist, author, and former music journalist.

One of the most influential metal singers in the industry. Although not the best and not my favorite he is still deserving of way more praise than being number 161 on this list. Give respect where respect is due even though he's beyond strange.

Role model

200 Andy Biersack - Black Veil Brides Andy Biersack - Black Veil Brides

Yes, I know, not everyone's cup of tea, but he does have an amazing voice, which is becoming so much more diverse with each album. His music as Andy Black shows increased complexity, depth, light and shade and as he has grown up, so has his music. I think he's bloody brilliant!

I love him. also I love his message his music make me happy to be myself as a trans

He's kool.
