30 Dan 'Lord Worm' Greening (Cryptopsy)

Lord Worm's voice is complete madness. If you are a brutal death metal fan, he is your perfect choice!

Can't get gored more by anyone else! - Nord666

His growls are as powerful as corpsegrinder's and brutal as chris barnes' ones! And his scream in open face surgery is insane!

Lord worm is king of screams when it comes to death metal. even though you can't understand a word listening to none so vile or blasphemy made flesh, the first time after a while he grows on U. lord worm is ten times better then matt mcgatchy. matt defietly needs to learn from lord worm on how to be better. but overall lord worm needs to be in top 10.

Ryptopsy's best his low shrieks accompineed by flo's highs are out of this world. even on once was not he made a very strong comeback and keeping his
"what the fu*k is he saying voice"

31 Tomas Lindberg (At the Gates)
32 Martin van Drunen (Pestilence)

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

33 Piotr Wiwczarek (Vader) Piotr Wiwczarek (Vader) Piotr Wiwczarek (also known as Peter) is a Polish guitarist and vocalist who is best known as the frontman for death metal band Vader, where he is the only constant member of the band since its inception.
34 Ryan Clark (Demon Hunter)
35 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!

36 John Gallagher (Dying Fetus) John Gallagher (Dying Fetus)

Best death metal vocalist of today... brutal!

37 Petri Lindroos (Norther, Ensiferum) Petri Lindroos (Norther, Ensiferum)
38 Anders Fridén (In Flames) Anders Fridén (In Flames) Anders Fridén is the vocalist/lyricist of the Swedish metal band In Flames. Fridén was also the vocalist of Passenger, a side project.

Amazing balance between clear vocals &deep growls

Sometimes a little questionable live performance, but this dude has some amazing vocals. Especially on the Clayman album, but even on the new albums his vocal performance is awesome! Love his screams and growls, and his clean vocals are quite nice as well :D

39 Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy) Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy) Alissa White-Gluz is a Canadian vocalist, best known as the former lead vocalist and one of the founding members of the Canadian metal band, The Agonist, and current lead vocalist for the Swedish melodic death metal group, Arch Enemy.

Great vocalist in both death and clean singing. She should be higher than Oliver Sykes who is not even death metal. She should at least be in the top 20.

Wow Alissa should be like number 10 she is just amazing!
