147 Dani Filth - Cradle of Filth Dani Filth - Cradle of Filth

Dani posses a great talent for song writing, and when he mix that talent with high pitched vocals it just sounds unreal.

His voice is a work of art. His screams and growls are mind-blowing and his vocal range is absolutely insane. He's the best song writer, lyricist and vocalist to roam the earth.

Dani filth sounds like the devil. Brilliant high screams, and decent growls.

He Is the founder and lead singer of the hard rock band Guns N' Roses. He is a celebrated but controversial figure in the world of rock.

Easily the best voice on this list. Unfortunately, this is a metal list and Rose is not metal.

He is not metal singer and he sucks!

If he just sang metal he would be the best - micahful

Shut up, he SUCKS!

I'd call him metal. His scream is fundamental

150 Matt Tuck - Bullet for My Valentine

I don't know if you read this, but Matt, you saved my life. You're the most amazing vocalist, obviously, but your songs have covered my entire life up to this point, especially venom. That song made me cry, and made me feel like I'm not alone in this. I'm completely obsessed, head over heels, for this girl who hates me, and I'm tired of it. Venom, bittersweet memories, Alone, tears don't fall, The End, Her voice resides; your masterpieces have helped me learn that I'm in control of my life, and no stuck up snob will control me anymore. I let breaking Benjamin bull destroy me, diary of Jane, what a bunch of bull. You are a real hero,and that's why I think you should be at number one. You have inspired me musically as well. Thank you matt, for showing me hope!

Matt Tuck is an awesome vocalist thanks to his skill with the guitar and to his nice style. In all the video clips he is playing guitar even though it is very difficult to synchronize with all those complicated things but now Bullet For My Valentine are in the 15 best heavy metal bands around the world. They 're just great!

He can growl and sing melodic tracks equally well... Something rare in today's metalcore bands

A talented vocalist, which can sing differently in different songs, from really high pitch vocals on "skin" to growls on axewound's songs.he also performs amazing gutturals on broken and all these things I hate.he really should be in the top ten.he deserves a olace around mshadows and ivan moody.

151 Chester Bennington - Linkin Park

What? Why he's on 150? He should be at least in the Top 50 to Top 100 but why does he is so far away here in 150. I can't believe this man! He needs more vote man! As for me, his voice is 1 of the most amazing voice ever so I guess he deserves to be at least at a higher place than this man.

Number 153? He should be N.1. Try singing as many styles as he does...

You might be kidding, chester bennington's voice is insane. At least in the top 10

Number 1 in my opinion

153 Alex Koehler - Chelsea Grin Alex Koehler - Chelsea Grin
154 Chris Cerulli - Motionless In White

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

155 Joakim Broden - Sabaton Joakim Broden - Sabaton

Simply one of the greatest voices in Metal!

Not only an awe-inspiringly amazing voice, but also a brilliant lyricist who easily puts history into song...

One of the best!

Sabaton isn't famous but Joakim's voice is so damn powerful! Top 10 at least

This legend should be at least top 15

One of the best metal voice ever heard!

156 Ronnie Radke Ronnie Radke

Not so much metal, but he's a great vocalist and lyricist

157 Mark Slaughter Mark Slaughter

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

158 Joe Elliott - Def Leppard

This man is one of the torchbearer in metal world. As good as Bruce Dickinson. Although definitely Leppard is marked as a rock band (NO REAL REASON).

159 Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson Brian Hugh Warner, better known by his stage name Marilyn Manson, is an American musician, songwriter, actor, painter, multimedia artist, author, and former music journalist.

One of the most influential metal singers in the industry. Although not the best and not my favorite he is still deserving of way more praise than being number 161 on this list. Give respect where respect is due even though he's beyond strange.

Role model

160 Chino Moreno - Deftones Chino Moreno - Deftones Chino Moreno is an American musician. He is best known as the lead vocalist and contributing guitarist of Deftones.

Chino deserves a damn high spot, his voice is the most unique one yet I feel like! His harsher vocals sound very unique too, although his clean vocals are what truly mesmerize. Nobody can quite match the unique way Chino sings, if anyone tried it just would not sound near as unique and expressive.

He has exceptional vocals, and his excellent vocals also shine in his side project Palms. He has the screaming vocals, and can still have soft and gentle vocals which makes his screaming vocals stand out.

Why is Chino so roar from the top. He has one of the best screams of all time!

The best vocals besides Freddie Mercury in my opinion. Has to be above #79
