Top 10 Best Metal Vocalists


The Contenders: Page 6

101 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.

102 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!

103 Dan Swanö

Brilliant Clean vocal with even better corresponding death growls

104 Bill Byford - Saxon
105 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.

106 Howard Jones - Killswitch Engage

His cover of Holy Diver=Perfect

Better than any other metalcore artist.

107 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

108 David Gold - Woods of Ypres

110 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.

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!
