Best Male Metal Singerssmart998
The Top Ten
The god of metal, he could sing good in both aggressive style and calmly and he sounded great even when he was dying from cancer and he invented the devil horns, that's enough to justify my choice. - IronMaidenFan666
The best singer!
Ronnie's voice perfectly suits metal.
Just A talented vocalist all round. Has A vocal range of 4 octaves most of which he is able to reach in full voice and what A powerful voice that is (more so live than on the Cds. ) He also has A great mix of Raspy vocals and clean ones (although he struggles with the raspy ones live nowadays. )
Definitely deserves to be on this list and I'm happy to see him in the top 10 - technicalbrutaldeath
How come he's not on top when he's on top of "best metal singer" list. - zxm
This list says Marco Hietala is the best metal singer, #1. Hmm... no offense but he is not even the best metal singer from Finland. He's not bad but something tells me that there are at least 70 metal singers better than him. - Metal_Treasure
His voice is captivating, even more so live. I love the range of his voice, which might not be as wide as the one of the other mentioned artists, but he definitely is one of my favorites.
Yeah Marco has a tenor range, but he can reach very low notes as well. Check The Islander by Nightwish..
I think he is even better with the low tones, the Islander is no challenge to his voice. Check the Raskasta joulua, he is doing amazing things thereV 6 Comments
Clean voice and singing with high pitch mouth very close to microphone without any sound break..
He's the best rock/metal singer on the earth, it's not question. Brutal clear sound in a funny character from Germany! GOD!
Awesome singer a shame there is no "Keeper III"
His range, power and feeling are incredible!V 2 Comments
Easily, TOP 5! One of the vocal gods in metal. His skills are remarkable but one thing never cease to amaze me: those angelic/demonic dimensions of his voice and Hansi's ability to switch from raw demonic to soft melancholic tone (and vice versa) in less than a second! No one else does that so powerfully and beautifully! (ex. My last sunrise, Heaven Denies, Path Of Glory, Love's Tragedy Asunder - by Demons & Wizards).
His extremely aggressive thrashy tone is awesome, too (Majesty, Banish from Sanctuary, Valhalla - by Blind Guardian). He's got the most passionate and emotive voice ever and always moves.
Hansi is just one of a kind metal singer who is amazing live, too. - Metal_Treasure
Favorite metal singer, so versatile!
The best ever
Tobias is the best vocalist of the entire world. Not a fan mode On...
He is now #6 and it's exactly where he should be, based on his incredible vocal skills.
His tone reminds of Bruce Dickinson and I love it. Try 'Nailed to the wheel' by Edguy. - Metal_Treasure
His live performance is much better than in the CD! He's awesome!
Attila's voice is exceptionally powerful. The fact that people don't know him as well as other singers (Marco Hietala, Dio, etc) is what makes him so much underrated. His operatic yet harsh style is what makes him unique from a lot of the typical high-pitched metal singers. His voice conveys power even at even very high notes.
His voice is so powerful yet, you can sense that he is into what he sings.
Attila's voice is powerful as a nuclear strike and catchy as AIDS, also perfectly fits Powerwolf's music. The dark god of metal deserves to perform a duet with Floor Jansen, but this will drastically revamp the world!
Outstanding and charismatic voiceV 5 Comments
How is this man not higher - sextysex
He is perfect, the metal god!
This list totally fails - 36 names so far and Rob Halford hasn't been mentioned yet?!?
Thank God Dio, Dickinson and Kiske are already in the top 10!
Let's get Rob Halford and Hansi Kürsch up there where they belong, too! - Metal_Treasure
Just the most perfect voice of world and the more emotional singer
Pure talent and passion.
Just unique.. Enough said
Should be number 1! Unique voice and stage presense, very talented man, miss himV 1 Comment
He has so much emotion and power in his voice. Unbelievable and mostly underrated. Made enough covers to prove that he can do more than rock/metal. Listen to "Nothing compares 2 U" or "My heart will go on".
Tony is one of my favourite vocalists. He has such an incredible tone to his voice and he sings with so much emotion in every song.
Cannot beat this guy. What an awesome singer
Best live singer I have ever seenV 1 Comment
Probably the best balanced singer of the list. Still learning, but nowadays should be on top 5 just listening seventh wonder's albums. Seventh Wonder has extreamly amazing vocal melodies and their live versions and the Kamelot ones are more than great.
A technical beast.
Just listening to the concept Album Mercy Falls (Seventh Wonder), his voice is captivating and if you need proof listen to Live in Atlanta.
Also Kamelot's Silverthorn is a masterpiece. Simply an amazing Vocalist.
Come on guys what a powefull voice.. he make our days live.. I can't describe with words how means this guy for our universe.. listen he's voice and feel the song! Then you'll find the truth of masterpiece soul.
Take Hold of the Flame is a song powerful enough to get him to the top of the list
Oh dear, he should be in the top 3... not 53 - Metal_Treasure
His voice is like a huge ocean tide. Definitely Top 10. - Metal_Treasure
Warrel in Sanctuary's two albums "Refuge Denied" and "Future Tense" in the late 80's created some of the most awesome wicked high pitch vocals ever. The guy is a freak of nature and he didn't just sing high, he could enunciate and was controlled. Still gives me chills.
He is still around and a fine singer, but (probably) can't hit the high notes consistently anymore. A shame, but I am enjoying his newer stuff because the guy still sounds great, but lower.
He sounds like Dio, David Coverdale and Ian Gillan singing together. - Metal_TreasureV 1 Comment
Powerful, expressive and overall divine voice. I think he is the best metal singer from Finland. - Metal_Treasure
Jarkko should be in the to 10! He is not so well known outside Finland, but his voice is unbelievable.
Definitely one of the best metal singers in the world. And he can sing so much more as well, even opera.
He was the prototype metal singer of all new generations: operatic feel, screams, growls, spooky sounds - everything's there. Should be higher for sure, lets say top 15-20.
Deep Purple - Child In Time;
Black Sabbath - Disturbing The Priest. - Metal_Treasure
My favourite singer. He absolutely brilliant. He is just the best in any type of song whether is slower or havier... My favourite slow song by a7x is victim. His screams are just out of this world. Really god gifted voice... Love M. Shadows... A7x forever m/
Why in Jesus name isn't Jimmie on number one?! Man, Jimmie Strimell is so awesome, every time I listen to his voice it makes me cry. The work he has done in Dead by April is completely awesome, I think he's the only person in the world that can combine pop music with screaming (metal) so well. Whenever I don't feel good I just listen to one of his songs (Dead by April, I feel so bad he's not there anymore) and when I listen to his screams it makes me feel so alive. His clean singing is great too. I just can't stop giving Strimell compliments, I just wanna say that Jimmie Strimell is the best in the world! And he will always be my favorite singer of all time.
Great screamer, awesome singer, he's the man! From real Death Metal to Acoustic songs, just every talent! Dead by April, Nightrage, Cipher System, Ends With A Bullet, just mention one of these bands where he hasn't done incredible work... Greatest Metal vocalist for sure. I personally think that he's a lot better than Matthew Tuck and Mitch Lucker and other famous screamers/singers, just look at all his bands! He's the "King of Metal"!
The Swedish king of Metal music! He's the best, from Dead by April to Death Destruction, just awesome. Screams of Jimmie are the best in the Metal genre, it's not too dark, not too soft, you can understand what he's screaming, it's melodic. Just unbeatable, I bet that.V 1 Comment
He's a technical beast, impressive tenor. - Metal_Treasure
Can't believe he's at #58. He's a top 10 material. - Metal_Treasure
He's got one of the best voices out there, in my opinion. Rough, deep and scratchy. Love him and Breaking Benjamin.
He's not a metal singer and should't be on this list. This guy sings post-grunge and alternative metal - obviously you will need a magnifier to find metal in his stuff. - Metal_Treasure
My favorite Metal singer
A powerhouse singer. Clean vocals but with some of the most 'evil' vocal effects in metal.
Savatage - Commissar, Morphine Child, Hall Of The Mountain King, Gutter Ballet, Surrender, Jesus Saves, Sirens.
Avantasia - Death Is Just a Feeling. - Metal_Treasure
Everyone that saw him live can agree with me.
He has such an awesome vocal and range
