The Contenders: Page 7

121 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.
122 Brent Smith - Shinedown Brent Smith - Shinedown Brent Stephen Smith is an American singer and songwriter, best known as the lead vocalist of the band Shinedown.

You can argue whether Shinedown is a metal band or a hard rock band, but you can't argue that Brent Smith is the greatest vocalist of our age.

Shinedown! Metal? Are you people serious?

123 Justin Bonitz - Hungry Lights

If you haven't heard of him or his solo project, Hungry Lights, you should probably check him out. He uses MANY different vocal styles and they are all self taught with no knowledge of the vocal styles. He can rap in different languages, scream in pretty much all techniques, and sing. A good start with his song is "Fothcrah", which can be found on youtube. - AgentArmadillo

124 Mille Petrozza Mille Petrozza Miland "Mille" Petrozza is a German metal guitarist and singer of Italian descent, who has been the lead vocalist and guitarist for the German thrash metal band Kreator since 1984.

The greatest

125 Mikael Stanne Mikael Stanne

Why is this site full of massive opinionated tools? I mean, what kind of stupid do you have to be to actually think Corey Taylor and Dave Mustaine have good vocals? Stanne does both good growling and singing, and he's being doing it since The Gallery.

Listen to Misery's Crown, and you'll see why.

why so low

126 Chris Cerulli - Motionless In White

He has great screams and his clean is amazing, he should be no. #1

127 Mark Slaughter Mark Slaughter

How could Mark not in the list? Just hear some of Mark's song... His voice just drives me crazy!

128 Brian "Head" Welch - Love & Death

Everybody should hear Head! I never knew how melodic, how harsh he can do with his vocals. Jonathan Davis should look out on how good of a vocalist and guitarist Head is!

129 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.

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.

130 Ian Astbury - The Cult
131 Wayne Hussey - The Mission
132 Jose Luís Campuzano - Barón Rojo
133 Lord Worm - Cryptopsy Lord Worm - Cryptopsy Dan Greening, aka Lord Worm, is the original vocalist for Cryptopsy, a Canadian technical death metal band. He is also an English teacher.

Absolutely astonishing growls, easily one of the best death metal vocalists and among the best of the whole genre as a result.

134 Burton Bell - Fear Factory

Should be way higher than 158. Burton was and IS one of the best for being able to change from growls to clean vocals to back seamlessly.

135 Spencer Chamberlain - Underoath
136 Daniel Mongrain - Martyr

A great vocalist, as also a very technical guitarist, from a band that deserves a lot of attention. Seriously! Feeding The Abscess is a great technical death metal album that showcases the talent of Daniel Mongrain. He is such a master that he even teaches music in a very prestigious music university at Canada!

137 Nils K. Rue - Pagan's Mind
138 Mike Hranica - The Devil Wears Prada
139 Jeremy McKinnon - A Day to Remember V 1 Comment
140 John Arch - Fates Warning

131! What ? Listen to "Guardian". Right Now! And then get the entire Awaken the Guardian and The Spectre Within albums. They're the greatest power/progressive metal albums of all-time.

Guardian is amazing, but Spectre is a mess vocally.

A very spécial singer, voice very high an just!
