The Contenders: Page 6

101 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.

Highest metal singer (D6)

102 Jesse Leach - Killswitch Engage

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

103 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...

104 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.

105 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!

106 Bill Byford - Saxon
107 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.

My first pick was Marcel Schirmer "Schmier" from Destruction, but he's not on here. Then John Kevill from Warbringer. Then David Sanchez from Havok. He's my next choice

108 Rody Walker - Protest the Hero V 1 Comment
109 Howard Jones - Killswitch Engage

His cover of Holy Diver=Perfect

Better than any other metalcore artist.

110 Greg Puciato - The Dillinger Escape Plan

He's one of the best modern vocalists.

111 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

112 David Gold - Woods of Ypres
113 Jason Newsted Jason Newsted Jason Curtis Newsted is an American metal musician, known for being the third bass guitarist with the band Metallica from November 1986 until his departure in January 2001, he was also a part of Voivod and Flotsam and Jetsam.

This is one vocalist that you should not underestimate. Powerful voice. A great bassist, too!

I was really impressed how good Newsted can do his vocals. He is like a mix of Dave Mustaine and Lemmy Killmeister when he sings! If you want proof listen to his new band Newsted and their debut material, Metal.

114 Peter "Peavy" Wagner - Rage
115 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!

Co-founder of the metal band Savatage and the rock opera Trans-Siberian Orchestra. He's got a real 4 octave range, able to morph the sound of his voice to any style, from John Lennon and Freddie Mercury, more.

Listen to the song or album "Hall of the Mountain King," and you'll see the pure power and higher ranges he is capable of hitting.

Screaming in the song CRITICAL ACCLAIM! Better than any full course vocalist.

Many will scroll for a very long time only to find this mans name at the bottom of the list. Not only one of the best drummers but his ability to sing and scream as high and he does breaks records.R.I. P The Rev!

love him
