Top 10 Best Metal Vocalists


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Klaus Meine Klaus Meine

One of the most versatile voices in Rock, he can sing ballads or heavy tunes, and is voice sounds better live. He is maybe the oldest singer in the list!, but he must be on the top 5 because he still sounds powerful live!

For those growing up with this genre, Judas Priest and The Scorpions WERE heavy metal. Absolutely criminal to have Klaus at 111. Insulting, actually...

You couldn't find a better live singer out there. He sounds exactly like if he were in the studio. I would rate him in the top ten, easily.

If anything, this man should be among Bruce Dickinson and Ronnie James Dio.

102 Daniel Heiman Daniel Heiman

Hits unbelievably high notes without wavering or losing any volume.

I believe he should at least be in the top 10.

His cover of Holy Diver=Perfect

Better than any other metalcore artist.

104 Jesse Leach - Killswitch Engage

Killswitch Engage are simply the best. After all they were one of the founders of metalcore!

105 Travis Ryan - Cattle Decapitation, Murder Construct Travis Ryan - Cattle Decapitation, Murder Construct Travis Ryan Collins, who goes by the stage name Travis Ryan, is an American musician known for being the vocalist of the Deathgrind band Cattle Decapitation.

The most talented metal vocalist. Period. His growls are haunting, His high-pitched gutturals insane and his pig squeals...

106 Miljenko Matijevic - Steelheart Miljenko Matijevic - Steelheart

Dude had more range then any singer at the time... He could his notes that would break glass... He should be in the top ten!

107 Björn "Speed" Strid

Seriously one of the best vocalists out there. Check out shining lights on the album the ride majestic

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.

108 Dan Swanö
109 Tony Martin - Black Sabbath

He is a real and powerful singer, full of inspirations and has a magical voice. He was in the second place after Ronnie in Black Sabbath.

Just listen to Black Sabbath - When Death Calls. You'll see... - coccoreccy

110 David Gold - Woods of Ypres
111 Peter "Peavy" Wagner - Rage
112 Tom Angelripper Tom Angelripper Thomas Such, better known by his stage name Tom Angelripper, is the founding member and main songwriter of German thrash metal band Sodom.
113 Messiah Marcolin Messiah Marcolin

This man's voice is just legendary. How are post hardcore vocalists like Oliver Sykes on this list, but not this doom metal king?

Best Vocalist in Metal ever!

114 Rody Walker - Protest the Hero V 1 Comment
115 Andre Matos Andre Matos André Coelho Matos is a Brazilian vocalist, pianist and composer. He was involved in the heavy metal bands Viper, Angra and Shaaman.

116 Robb Flynn - Machine Head Robb Flynn - Machine Head
117 Dave "Stage" Williams - Drowning Pool

Probably the best vocalists in Drowning Pool and RIP Dave Williams. Drowning pool would've made more awesome songs with him like how awesome the song "bodies" is with his vocals

118 Dorothee Pesch - Warlock
119 Ryan Clark - Demon Hunter

A singer with beautiful, melodic cleans as well as a brutal yet perfectly intelligible scream, which he switches between quite frequently. And the best lyricist I've ever come across.

Ryan has some impressive range with clean vocals, able to sing high, low, softly and harshly He also has some epic and unique heavy vocals.

120 Fabio Lione Fabio Lione Fabio Tordiglione is an Italian singer and lyricist who has sung with many music bands including Rhapsody of Fire, Labyrinth, Ayreon, Angra, Vision Divine, Hollow Haze, Kaledon, Ancient Bards, and Athena.
