The Top Ten

1 The Mighty Masturbator - Devin Townsend Project

This song is 16:28 minutes long. - Metal_Treasure

2 Wrong Side - Strapping Young Lad

This song is a perfect example of how he switches from growls to operatic vocals and vice versa. This contrast sounds so unexpected that always amazes me.
The first switch is at about 0:50 so you get the idea within the 1st minute of the song.
Play the song sample - the transition is on it. - Metal_Treasure

3 Touching Tongues - Steve Vai

Vocals start at 3:15 into the song.
And yes, Steve Vai invited Devin Townsend to provide lead vocals for this album (Sex & Religion, 1993). Nobody knew Devin at the time (not that now everyone has heard of him but in metal community some fans are familiar with his songs). - Metal_Treasure

4 Juular - Devin Townsend Project
5 Far Beyond Metal - Strapping Young Lad
6 Deconstruction - Devin Townsend Project
7 March Of The Poozers - Devin Townsend Project
8 Deadhead - Devin Townsend
9 War - Devin Townsend

At the end, 5:40-6:30 - Metal_Treasure

10 The Death of Music - Devin Townsend

There are some pretty high notes here, mainly towards the end. - Metal_Treasure
