Top 10 Metal Albums of 2017 with the Best Vocals

Some of the albums on this list may not be among the top metal albums of 2017 but they have very good vocals.

The Top Ten

1 Incorruptible - Iced Earth

Stu Block - powerful clean vocals that sound close to Matt Barlow, especially the song Raven Wing (at times I could't believe it wasn't Matt). - Metal_Treasure

2 Urn - Ne Obliviscaris

They have 2 lead singers and here I mean Tim Charles who provides the clean vox. His voice sounds angelic and his falsetto is amazing.
Libera (Part I) Saturnine Spheres
Urn (Part I) - And Within the Void We Are Breathless (esp. vox at 3:00-3-20)
This is my #1 metal album of 2017 so far (Oct 2017) - Metal_Treasure

3 Will To Power - Arch Enemy

I like Alissa's growls. In this album she included more of her cleans - many people didn't know she can sing "normally" (song - Reason to Believe).
One of my favorite albums of 2017. - Metal_Treasure

4 Theater of Dimensions - Xandria

Dianne van Giersbergen is basically an opera singer (dramatic soprano) so no surprise here. - Metal_Treasure

5 Aathma - Persefone
6 Gods of Violence - Kreator
7 Inception - Sanctuary

Very good clean operatic vox, high pitched.
There are like 10 metal bands with this name (Sanctuary) but this is the band from Seattle, US (heavy metal, power metal, prog metal). - Metal_Treasure

8 The Solace System - Epica

We have a songbird here. - Metal_Treasure

9 Prevail I - Kobra And The Lotus

Kobra Paige is a classicaly trained female singer - Metal_Treasure

10 Life on Death Road - Jorn

The Contenders

11 In the Passing Light of Day - Pain of Salvation

Daniel is a great singer but I didn't put him higher because I am never sure whether they play prog metal or prog rock. For me they are more like prog rock but I decided to include Daniel. - Metal_Treasure

I'd consider this progressive metal, it's one of their most heaviest records in awhile. The drumming is very much progressive metal-esque, and some of the riffs are pretty heavy. Full Throttle Tribe, Reasons and On a Tuesday are probably the best examples to see for yourself. - cjWriter1997

12 The Rise Of Chaos - Accept
13 Psychotic Symphony - Sons of Apollo
