Top 10 Best Metal Vocalists


The Contenders: Page 7

121 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?

122 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

123 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

124 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

125 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!

126 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.

127 Jeremy McKinnon - A Day to Remember V 1 Comment
128 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 sp├ęcial singer, voice very high an just!

129 Jimmie Strimell

Jimmie is the simply the best. Great screams and I also like his poppish voice. He's the best believe me, just listen to Dead by April's Losing You and you'll be amazed by his talent. Jimmie Strimell the best thumbs upp.

130 Ronny Munroe - Metal Church
131 Glenn Danzig - Danzig Glenn Danzig - Danzig

Seriously? Evil Elvis not on the list? Faith in humanity lost

Shouldn't be this far down the list. Glenn is a great vocalist

Jim morrison, Elvis Presly and the Howlin' wolf in one person.. amazing

132 Ryan Kirby - Fit for a King
133 Anneke Van Giersbergen - The Gathering

The first female singer that I found, unique and powerful voice.

134 Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan - Avenged Sevenfold Jimmy James Owen Sullivan (February 9th, 1981 - December 28th 2009), better known by his stage name "The Rev" (Short for "The Reverend Tholomew Plague") was an American musician, singer and songwriter, best known as the former drummer, backing vocalist and co-founder of the American heavy metal band Avenged more.

Simply the best. His vocals are claimed impossible throughout the internet. Simply stunning. And he's not even the main vocalist! FoREVer

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

135 Johan Langquist - Candlemass

Both him and Messiah deserve this list, certainly if Shadows does! Just jisten to his range, his screaming! Listen to Demon's Gate and Under The Oak

136 Joacim Cans - HammerFall Joacim Cans - HammerFall
137 Brittney Slayes - Unleash the Archers

Her power and range in unmatched by any vocalist on this list. This is the vocal sound that all metal needs.

Awesome vocals!
