The Contenders: Page 6

101 Ailyn - Sirenia Ailyn - Sirenia Pilar Giménez García known artistically as Ailyn Giménez, is a Spanish singer, songwriter, best known as the former female vocalist of the Norwegian symphonic/gothic metal band Sirenia.
102 Waylon Reavis - Mushroomhead
103 Christian Alvestam

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

104 Jorn Lande Jorn Lande Jørn Lande is a Norwegian metal and hard rock singer known for his solo career as Jorn, and providing vocals for Avantasia, Masterplan, Ark, Beyond Twilight, Millenium, Allen/Lande, Mundanus Imperium, Vagabond, The Snakes, Ayreon.

I hate those guy who vote just for the vocalist of their favorite band but don't vote for the real best vocalist Jorn Lande. I mean he is much more talented as Bruce Dickonson or James Hetfield and he is WAY better than Corey Taylor. He has such a great voice and outstanding live performances furthermore he is a amazing guest vocalist for Avantasia and got great albums in Jorn and Masterplan.

All in all Jorn Lande is one of the best vocalists on earth, I think he is Dios legacy and he deserves much more attention!

Jorn Lande is such an great vocalist, live performances are always astounding

Inarguable one of the best. Who dare to oppose it?

Should be in top ten

105 Tommy Karevik - Seventh Wonder, Kamelot Tommy Karevik - Seventh Wonder, Kamelot Tommy Karevik is a Swedish metal vocalist, best known as the singer for metal bands Seventh Wonder and Kamelot.

Tommy is the best replacement for Roy we could ever imagine as Kamelot fans! I've seen him performing live 3 times now and got a chance to meet him as well. A great guy, great voice and awesome performance on stage! In Seventh Wonder he shows a different side and that is also amazing. I also love his role in Ayreon's Theory of Everything, the best Prodigy Arjen could have picked! My favorite singer!

Tommy Karevik is young, powerful and stupendous at leading two of the best prog/power metal bands on earth. He has righteously filled the huge shoes of Roy Khan singing for Kamelot, but he truly shines brightest with Seventh Wonder.

He's not just an incredible singer. He's an incredible person. What other singer do you know that is a firefighter as well as a fantastic singer in TWO bands (Seventh Wonder, which is also absolutely amazing), all the while being so humble and nice to those he meets.

He is my number 1 favorite vocalists of all time, I just love him its shocking he isn't higher in this list

106 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)

107 Rody Walker - Protest the Hero V 1 Comment
108 Jon Oliva - Savatage Jon Oliva - Savatage John Nicholas Oliva, known as Jon Oliva, is an American composer, multi-instrumentalist and singer. 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.

109 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.

110 Dan Swanö Dan Swanö Dan-Erland Swanö is a Swedish musician who is currently the vocalist, guitarist, ex-bassist and ex-drummer for the band Nightingale, lately vocalist, keyboardist and drummer for the band Witherscape, as well as the Owner of Unisound but he achieved fame as the vocalist and songwriter of progressive more.

Brilliant Clean vocal with even better corresponding death growls

111 Bill Byford - Saxon

It's Biff Byford, not Bill. But yes, amazing singer who is on the same platform of skill as Bruce Dickinson.

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.

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

113 Howard Jones - Killswitch Engage Howard Jones - Killswitch Engage Howard Jones (Born July 20th, 1970) is an American Heavy Metal vocalist. He currently fronts the band Light the Torch (Formerly Devil You Know), but is best known for his tenure in the band Killswitch Engage from 2002 to 2012 and was a vocalist for the now defunct Blood Had Been Shed.

His cover of Holy Diver=Perfect

Better than any other metalcore artist.

114 Greg Puciato - The Dillinger Escape Plan

He's one of the best modern vocalists.

115 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

116 David Gold - Woods of Ypres

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.

118 Peter "Peavy" Wagner - Rage
119 Adam Gontier - Three Days Grace Adam Gontier - Three Days Grace Adam Wade Gontier is a Canadian musician and songwriter. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for Saint Asonia, but is best known as the former lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter of the Canadian rock band Three Days Grace.

Simply the voice of God in metal, especially in Shaman and Angra.
