21 Warrel Dane

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.

22 Jarkko Ahola Jarkko Ahola Jarkko Kalevi Ahola is a Finnish performing artist, composer and singer, best known as a metal singer. He is the vocalist, bass player and one of the three songwriters of the metal band Teräsbetoni. He also started a solo career as Ahola, a metal band.

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.

28 Ian Gillan Ian Gillan Ian Gillan is an English singer and songwriter. He originally found success as the lead singer and lyricist for Deep Purple, and the original singer on the rock opera concept album Jesus Christ Superstar by Andrew Lloyd Webber, where Gillan had the leading role (Jesus Christ).

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

36 Benjamen Burnley

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 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/

40 Jimmie Strimell

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.
