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
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
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
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
Michael Kiske (Helloween, Avantasia) is still the most skilled metal singer regardless of whether you like him or not. And his voice is still amazing after all these years. Freak of nature! - Metal_Treasure
Clean voice and singing with high pitch mouth very close to microphone without any sound break..
Awesome singer a shame there is no "Keeper III"
Unbelievable singer... Makes me shiver and smile
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!
Awesome voice, clear and powerful, with great range.V 4 Comments
Pure talent and passion.
Just unique.. Enough said
Should be number 1! Unique voice and stage presense, very talented man, miss him
8 are u joking me?
How is this man not higher - sextysex
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
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
Very good but not exactly top 10, maybe 25-30. - Metal_Treasure
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.
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
