The Contenders: Page 2

21 Karl Willetts (Bolt Thrower)

He has a perfect deep brutal voice, not a screechy one, so you can feel the power of one of the best death metal bands, as bolt thrower, and you can hear the lyrics too.

Karl willetts and johan hegg are the best death metal vocalists

The perfect voice for the perfect band m/

22 Dan Swanö Dan Swanö Dan-Erland Swanö is a Swedish musician who is currently the vocalist, guitarist, ex-bassist and ex-drummer for the band Nightingale, lately vocalist, keyboardist and drummer for the band Witherscape, as well as the Owner of Unisound but he achieved fame as the vocalist and songwriter of progressive more.

Just listen to the beginning of "Crimson II", this guy blows everyone else on this list out of the water.

Amazing death metal vocalist should be much higher on the list!

Great vocalist he should be top 5

His range is even more various than Akerfelds. From low growls through strong singing up to heavy metal shrieks - this is ultimate 360°C talent. Just compare what he is capable of with "Steel" and with "Edge of sanity"

34 Tomas Lindberg (At the Gates)
35 Martin van Drunen (Pestilence)

His voice and his style are the real way of how a death metal vocalist should sound

36 Mithun MK (Silent Images/Deus Ex Machina)

He destroys the arenas just with the vibration of his throat, and we are not even speaking about his stage performance. Delete all of his music files from your PC and go watch him live. Mithun MK will gnar, roar and growl the soul out of your flesh. alive and live.

Monstrous range and spectacular to watch live. Realpolitik by Silent Images is one of the most insane vocal performances I've heard

Easily the Dani Filth of Death Metal! Caught Deus Ex Machina in Adelaide a few years ago. Great frontman too

Prolly the best growler to come from south east Asia!

37 Ryan Clark (Demon Hunter)
38 John Gallagher (Dying Fetus) John Gallagher (Dying Fetus)

Best death metal vocalist of today... brutal!

39 Peter Tägtgren (Hypocrisy, Bloodbath) Peter Tägtgren (Hypocrisy, Bloodbath) Alf Peter Tägtgren is a Swedish musician, multi-instrumentalist and producer. He is the founder, main songwriter, lead vocalist, and guitarist of the death metal band Hypocrisy as well as the industrial metal band PAIN in which he is the only member.

The album debut of Hypocrisy is awesome, his vocals make me feel like a man in flames and it's so fantastic

Listen to EATEN! True Death Metal voice!

He looks like a cross between Christopher Walken and Johnny Depp. He's still awesome though!

You should hear his vocals in PAIN.
