Top 10 Best Metal Vocalistsjuan_david
The Contenders: Page 3
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
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
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
Seriously? Evil Elvis not on the list? Faith in humanity lost
Shouldn't be this far down the list. Glenn is a great vocalist
Jim morrison, Elvis Presly and the Howlin' wolf in one person.. amazingV 1 Comment
Seriously one of the best vocalists out there. Check out shining lights on the album the ride majestic
The best vocalist, I've ever heard. Check out his Features on youtube or so. SUCH BRILLANT!
Björn is a beast and can sing and growl exceptionally well. His signing on The Living Infinite proves that and his growling on The Chainheart Machine proves that he's great.
Clearly you guys are uncultured posers if you think Dickinson or hetfield are even close to Alvestam's talent. Go listen to his stuff for Solution.45, you'll thank me.
You wanna hear someone who combines growling and clean vocals Chris is your man not Corey Taylor who just shouts
Christian Älvestram is amazing, listen to holographic universe by scar symmetry and you'll understand why
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
Pioneered Black metal. Badass Voice. - GreenDayFan21
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 said
Tarja ranks lower than some of her cheap imitations...this is so wrong.V 2 Comments
Exceptionally beautiful voice. I like her way more than Tarja, for example.
Brilliant Clean vocal with even better corresponding death growls
Need to be in top 20 at least...
Is it some kind of a joke?
Should be way higher than 58
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.
