Top 10 Best Metal Vocalistsjuan_david
The Contenders: Page 3
Alissa deserves a top 10 slot without a doubt! Also, no best of metal vocals list is complete without John Arch, Ray Alder, Midnight, and of course the mighty Ski (Deadly Blessing)! You sir need a metal refresher course or something! Many other legends too, but these few prove my point. Which is, this list blows!V 1 Comment
No clue why Jonathan Davis isn't higher on the list. His voice is so raw and unhinged on Korn's early albums. His is a style that has influenced two generations of metal vocalists.
I have grown up listening to korn and I believe Johnathan Davis is one of the best voices of all time, not sure why he is so low on the list but he needs to be higher asap
Davis is the best rock and metal vocalist man :/ Why is on 19? His voice is unique
He has one of the most unique voices in the world defiantly should be higherV 11 Comments
How could anyone forget about Hatebreeder and Follow The Reaper? I know his voice doesn't sound now as good as old times but he is still very cool. better on guitar but still the vocals are awesome
My favourite is MORRIGAN. A talented vocalist and guitarist. A truly talented musician.V 3 Comments
Best vocalist in my opinion. Layne could take something very dark and sad and make it one of the most beautiful things you ever heard. RIP
Layne had an amazing range the guitar vocal duo in man in the box, the chorus of bleed the freak, and nutshell all prove how amazing his voice is. Truly the greatest
THe only metal I don't like is hair metal. and out of every genre listen to (Death metal, Black metal, Doom metal, Grunge, Heavy metal. Layne is the best vocalist I've found
The man can bring sadness to metal just by using his voice. He almost sound like he's on the edge of tears even when he's hitting those higher notes that require an angrier tone. The best in my opinion
The king of raw vocal power.V 4 Comments
Huge huge huge range, comes after Bruce Dickinson when comes to delivering metal vocals - Flash667
Great voice with an incredible range.
Umm haha that girly voice of m shadows in top 10 and myles here, way to go idiots, actually its good for Alter Bridge fans as we get quality fans and the band doesn't get overrated like A7x
Alter Bridge is a metal band?V 2 Comments
Extreme guttural vocals don't get nearly enough respect! Anders is the best of the best when it comes to guttural vocals! His clean vocals are damn good as well! It was a tough call between Anders and Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden. - sorteal
Amazing vocalist, and one of the most unique vocalist in metal, with black metal influence to his vocals
This list is a joke, don't know why I bother writing this anyways...
Baby metal isn't even metal...
Simone Simons is a really awesome singer. His voice is mezzosoprano, but she can climb to the top notes of a soprano. It can be sweet, as aggressive. Master the classical technique as style rock / pop. Her voice is full of feeling, a feeling that is when she sings live. Not the typical super sweet soprano, she has a wonderful voicepoint, warm and dark at once. Not only sings, also composed some lyrics, very philosophical lyrics that really make you think, like "Sensorium" or "Storm the Sorrow", not just a pretty face, no, she really has a melodious voice, she's a goddess of metal with a heart of gold x
Such a beautiful voice. Her and Tarja rule symphonic metal
It's not really epic
How are Floor, Simone, Sharon so low on this list? Oh wait, they're not cool enough for the Abenged Sevenfold and Slipnazi fans.V 1 Comment
Underrated. Listen to him on King For a Thousand Years by Helloween. - Caleb9000
Amazing vocal range, in 90s he was awesome
As Periphery grows more popular, more people will realize how unbelievable Spencer is as a vocalist, although his voice takes a while to get used to
Tarja is the goddes of metal, simply as that. Listen to the album Once, her vocal range there is but astonishing, from Nemo to Creek Mary's Blood, and the unforgettable Ghost Love Score, her voice is unique and majestic.
An angel amongst the herd of screaming knuckleheads in the genre
The goddess of symphonic metal, no more words need to be saidV 3 Comments
Exceptionally beautiful voice. I like her way more than Tarja, for example.
Is it some kind of a joke?
Need to be in top 20 at least...
Really underrated vocalist. Everyone should listen to "The Masquerade Ball" by Axel Rudi Pell.
Johnny Gioeli is the best
One of a kind.
He should be Top 10-15. Obviously very underrated. He's a 4 octave wonder and his tone and singing style remind of Rob Halford a lot. - Metal_Treasure
Is my favorite metal vocalist, a great powerful, wide range voice.
Not only does Papa have an incredible voice, but he has an unmatchable stage presence. He is similar to King Diamond, with more mellow and evil sounding music. I urge all of you to start listening to Ghost. They are getting more and more popular as we speak. This is a bold statement, but I truly believe they are the Iron Maiden or Black Sabbath of our generation - ryanrimmel
Just a simply amazing voice deserves top ten!V 2 Comments
Jonas Renkse is so versatile, has soothing voice, beautifully made, and so melodic. Definitely, a great metal vocalist. Deserves so very much recognition.
He sings so fast. no one sings like him. Alexi is awesome too. And why the hell is Attila here when Dead is missing?
Awesome metal vocal from Nepal
It is actually Parash Shakya and I know this because I am Nepali. Well any way he is one of the greatest vocalist.
Its should be in top 5 max have the nice pure metal voice and scream..
Top 5 top 3 vocalist
I love his music
This guy's vocals kick ass, just listen to "Dead Embrionic Cells" or "Refuse/Resist"V 1 Comment
