He sings some borderline metal-to-glam metal songs and I don't like the glam part but without a doubt - this guy can sing very well.

7 Randy Black - Primal Fear (Germany) Randy Black is a Canadian-born metal drummer and recording artist best known for his stints as the drummer for Annihilator, Primal Fear, Duskmachine, and Bif Naked. He is an ambidextrous drummer.

He was a long-term Annihilator drummer but he left Annihilator to join his fiancé in Germany. He auditioned with one of the best German metal bands. Primal Fear made the right decision by choosing him. Randy was with this band for 10 years but sadly, in 2014 he left. - Metal_Treasure

8 Bernie Shaw - Uriah Heep (UK) Bernard "Bernie" Shaw is a Canadian singer, and since 1986, the lead vocalist for the British rock group Uriah Heep.

So Bernie Shaw was selected to replace them and he's been with Uriah Heep since 1986.
