153 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.

156 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.

157 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 list
