The Contenders: Page 9

161 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

162 David Wayne - Metal Church

Are you people serious

163 Tomi Joutsen - Amorphis

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

164 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.

165 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

166 Trent Reznor - Nine Inch Nails V 1 Comment
167 Midnight - Crimson Glory
168 Marc Hudson - DragonForce Marc Hudson - DragonForce
169 Jamey Jasta - Hatebreed

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

170 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.

171 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

172 Jacoby Shaddix - Papa Roach

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

173 Joacim Cans - HammerFall Joacim Cans - HammerFall
174 Udo Dirkschneider Udo Dirkschneider Udo"Hassan"Dirkschneider is a German heavy metal singer who rose to fame with German heavy metal band Accept.

Come on guys! No Udo?! He has one of the most identifiable voice in metal and almost all he did with accept (witch is a grandly overlooked band in my opinion even this days with Mark Tornillo) is awesome. "Restless ands wild", "Balls to the Walls" "Metal Heart" (even through the last one is a bit less good) are all classic albums and his solo stuff is pretty badass too. Definitely one of the greatest.

Udo have best and unique voice. He regularly writes new song. Udo is king of heavy metal.

175 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.

176 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!

177 Alexis Brown - Straight Line Stitch

She's the reason I'm a singer
