Top 10 Best Metal Vocalists


The Contenders: Page 9

161 Maria Brink - In This Moment Maria Brink - In This Moment
162 Mathias Blad - Falconer

Really deep and powerful voice, with classical influence

163 Zachary Stevens - Circle II Circle
164 Tim Lambesis - As I Lay Dying

Probably the only metalcore vocalist that doesn't have that annoying whiny voice, Lambesis's voice is actually surprisingly powerful.

Tim is really good, everything he does is perfect when it comes to talent. He should be in top ten at least

165 Blaze Bayley Blaze Bayley

Blaze Bayley is unquestionably the greatest Underground Cult Heavy Metal of all time! He deserves the utmost recognition and should be at least Top 5 on this list. His disclosed relationship with Rob Halford is another bonus

166 Jinx Dawson - Coven
167 Brendon Small Brendon Small Brendon Small is an American producer, writer, animator, stand-up comedian, voice actor, and musician.

One of the most underrated vocalists, yes he only growls in Dethklok but if you listen to Galaktikon or The Doomstar Requiem youll realise he has a great and powerful voice

168 Conrad Thomas Lant - Venom
169 Ihsahn - Emperor Ihsahn - Emperor

How is he not even on the list in the first place?

170 David Wayne - Metal Church

Are you people serious

171 Tomi Joutsen - Amorphis

Almost forgot about him, he definitely deserves to be much higher

172 Nils Patrik Johansson - Civil War

Best singer I've ever heard. Before I thought it was Ronnie James Dio but this guy got a even better voice.
He deserves way more fame than he got now.

173 Trent Reznor - Nine Inch Nails V 1 Comment
174 Midnight - Crimson Glory
175 Marc Hudson - DragonForce Marc Hudson - DragonForce
176 Jamey Jasta - Hatebreed

His voice is powerful. He should be at least in the top 10

177 Vince Neil - Mötley Crüe Vince Neil - Mötley Crüe Vincent Neil Wharton is an American vocalist and musician, best known as the lead vocalist of heavy metal band Mötley Crüe.

The voice that made me like heavy metal. Could sing both hard and slow tunes, and heck, so wild and so childish at the same time... You can say that it's not metal if you want-but there's no metal fan with no opinion on which kind of music the Crüe is. Then you may say that he doesn't match the technical abilities of Halford, Dio or Dickinson, and you will be right! Say what you want, but there's no contradicting this: this guy's voice can raise every hair from your body and make you sing like hell.

178 Vicky Psarakis - The Agonist

Vicky is very talented and she had high expectation for The Agonist after Alissa White-Gluz left. She did a great job of filling her shoes and she deserves a spot on here

179 Jacoby Shaddix - Papa Roach

PAPA ROACH IS NOT METAL. God, when will you people realise this?

180 Geddy Lee - Rush Geddy Lee - Rush Geddy Lee Weinrib, known professionally as Geddy Lee, is a Canadian musician, singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist, bassist, and keyboardist for the Canadian rock group Rush.

God he can sing high

Although Rush is not exactly a metal band, Geddy Lee's vocals in the 70s were the perfect voice for progressive metal and he was a major influence on so many greats who came after him. In my opinion, that voice in the 70s was as good as it gets.
