193 Paul Baloff - Exodus V 1 Comment
194 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).

195 Michael Eriksen - Circus Maximus
196 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.

197 Floor Jansen - After Forever Floor Jansen - After Forever Floor Jansen is a Dutch singer-songwriter and vocal coach. She is currently vocalist of Nightwish and leader of Revamp.

This Metal Goddess shall be below Dickinson, she exceed all female vocalist in the past years, just listen Ghost love score if you not have an eargasm you are deaf! Amazing!

Has a beautiful operatic voice that can get rough for more intense songs.

My favorite singer of all time, she is simply amazing!

A living goddess!...

198 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.

199 Chino Moreno - Deftones Chino Moreno - Deftones Chino Moreno is an American musician. He is best known as the lead vocalist and contributing guitarist of Deftones.

Chino deserves a damn high spot, his voice is the most unique one yet I feel like! His harsher vocals sound very unique too, although his clean vocals are what truly mesmerize. Nobody can quite match the unique way Chino sings, if anyone tried it just would not sound near as unique and expressive.

He has exceptional vocals, and his excellent vocals also shine in his side project Palms. He has the screaming vocals, and can still have soft and gentle vocals which makes his screaming vocals stand out.

Why is Chino so roar from the top. He has one of the best screams of all time!

The best vocals besides Freddie Mercury in my opinion. Has to be above #79

200 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.
