Brobusky

The Top Ten

1 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden

Bruce Dickinson proves, once again, that he has one of the best voices in music history with this song off Number of the Beast. - Brobusky

Rob's screams on this track are just legendary. - Brobusky

3 Kill the King - Rainbow

MIND-BLOWING performance from Ronnie James Dio. One of the all-time best vocal performances EVER recorded. - Brobusky

4 Victim of Changes - Judas Priest

Insane vocals for sure and a great song but I don't think this song is metal. Just saying. This isn't a problem because Halford has many great metal performances to choose from. - Metal_Treasure

The last part when he screams VICTIM OF CHANGE! - zxm

5 Child in Time - Deep Purple

Especially the screaming part - zxm

6 The Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden

You know why this song is on the list. - Brobusky

7 Wish You Were Dead - Overkill

Bobby Blitz's high note is one of the best ever in the song. That alone gets Wish You Were Dead a spot on the list. - Brobusky

8 Gates of Babylon - Rainbow

Ronnie James Dio has one of the best voices in metal, as this song proves. - Brobusky

9 Cemetery Gates - Pantera
10 Angel of Death - Slayer

The face-melting opener to Slayer's landmark 1986 album Reign in Blood has one of Tom Araya's signature screams right at the beginning to set the tone for this amazing song, with an amazing vocal performance. - Brobusky

The Contenders

11 My Last Sunrise - Demons & Wizards

If some of you don't know this song you should listen to it NOW. I don't wanna describe the vocals - this vocal performance should be heard. Vocals are from Hansi K├╝rsch of Blind Guardian. - Metal_Treasure

12 Rainbow in the Dark - Dio

I think this is one of the best vocals from Dio, if not his best. - Metal_Treasure

13 One - Metallica
14 Stargazer - Rainbow
15 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest
16 Wheel of Time - Blind Guardian
17 Thorn - Blind Guardian
