The Contenders: Page 4

61 Fernando Ribeiro (Moonspell) Fernando Ribeiro (Moonspell) Fernando Ribeiro has been the lead vocalist for the Portuguese metal band Moonspell since 1992. He sings gothic metal, black metal, doom metal, melodic death metal.

He can do both clean vocals and growls, and very often he switches between them within one song. Sometimes he sings on the borderline - as if he's gonna start growling but he doesn't. This technique sounds really cool and interesting (example - 'Sacrificial'). - Metal_Treasure

62 Fabio Lione Fabio Lione Fabio Tordiglione is an Italian singer and lyricist who has sung with many music bands including Rhapsody of Fire, Labyrinth, Ayreon, Angra, Vision Divine, Hollow Haze, Kaledon, Ancient Bards, and Athena.

Everyone that saw him live can agree with me.

He has such an awesome vocal and range

78 Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear) Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear) Ralf Scheepers is the vocalist for German heavy metal band Primal Fear. He has a relatively high-pitched tenor-esque singing voice and sometimes uses a shriek reminiscent of Judas Priest's Rob Halford, although it is his baritone lows which give him a near four-octave range in the modal register.

An impressive 4 octave vocal range. His tone and singing style remind of Rob Halford a lot. Check out "The man (That I don't know)"; "All For One" by Primal Fear. - Metal_Treasure
