21 ICS Vortex

Just listen to him... His voice is so eargasm... He's the reason people listen to Dimmu Borgir.

22 Satanic Tyrant Werewolf (Satanic Warmaster)

His vocals are drenched in pain and sorrow. He sounds like he came straight from the depths of hell.

He is the heart of satanic warmaster - Ananya

24 Erik Danielsson (Watain)

I like his screams because you can actually understand what he's saying and they fit the atmosphere

25 Stefan (Graveworm)
26 Malefic (Xasthur)
27 Kanwulf (Nargaroth)

Well, don't listen to Nargaroth songs when you have intensions to kill someone, or you obviously will be succeed doing so and you have to face lawsuits next. :o - Nord666

28 Hoest (Taake)

His epic angry vocals will present you with freezing and grim tales from ice-cold land of Norway. UGH!

If You feel suicidal & You're listening to him. You wont see the next day.

Not for those who are doing through depression or something - Ananya

Based on their comments and way of writing, I can tell most people who vote here are very limited musically. Music is a form of art, and art is defined by being extraordinary, by being able to please its observers in various ways... That's my opinion at least, please comment if you think otherwise.
Anyway, this singer is really capable of making you experience his explosive anger and sheer insanity. The vocals range from high pitched screams to unusually low growls, very pleasing in my humble opinion. His best work is to be found on "Dictius Te Necare", with lyrics solely in German. Look it up if you're looking for something new and more extreme.

32 Garm (Ulver)

Great screams and cleans! Ulver, Arcturus, Borknagar etc. Should be top 10 for sure

Perfect black metal vocalist. Absolutely amazing screaming vocals and fantastic cleans. Listen to Arcturus' Aspera Hiems Symfonia and you'll listen both at their perfection!

33 Niklas Kvarforth (Shining)

Darker then most of the stuff out there!

34 V.I.T.R.I.O.L (Anaal Nathrakh)

He has one of the most varied vocal range as well of intensity, without the need of props, just being himself

35 Neige (Mortifera)

This guys range and projection are amazing
