Randy blythe is the best and I mean the best he should be number 1 listen to "blood of the scribe" and "in your words" and vote again. Long live the prince of heavy metal!
Randy Blythe has the best metal vocals for sure, just listen to his voice, it's proper hardcore! And I don't know but why is he under Kurt?
His range is amazing and he can scream insane vocals. Should be number one for sure - heavymetalrocker777
Should be inside 20.Better than AXL.Listen to his growl first. - wriddhakV 7 Comments
I'm a big KISS fan, so I think Paul should have placed higher. Of course as the years went by, KISS was over shadowed big time by bands that sold way more albums & had way better guitar players than Ace. I think the only reason KISS even got so huge is because they came out in '75 when their was not a lot of real competition. If this list were made in '75 to '77 KISS glory years, then Paul would definitely be ranked #1. Paul's voice now is very bad unfortunately.
Must be some rap loser he is the lead singer for one of the big 4 zeppelin sabbath deep purple and kiss everybody else is afterbirth
Amazing singer. If he'd had been in any other big band and not KISS he'd be up at the top of this list.
He was and is amazing.V 4 Comments
Ville... is the best singer ever! His voice is so unique! His lyrics are so beautiful... and he's the sexiest man alive.. he's pure perfection.. he must be first!.. VOTE FOR VILLE!
He has the most emotional voice ever
He had a perfect voice, but smoking cracked up his voice..
Maybe not anyone likes this kind of metal, but he sings very good. He deserves at least 4th place in this top.
Best voice in the world by far, even just his normal talking voice.
Ville should be at the top of this list.
Take the time to listen to his voice not just the lyrics and music.
I can't believe Hetfield, Mustaine, and Ozzie are above this phenomenal singer! People are just voting for the singer of their favorite band, not the best singer. The only person on this list that can compare to Hansi is Rob Halford.
What! This incredible voice at 44? God of Power Metal?
#44 is not good enough for this vocal god. I see Ozzy is #10, so Hansi has to be at least #9 because Hansi is undoubtedly better than Ozzy. - Metal_Treasure
One of the most underrated metal singers of all time. Just listen to Burnt offerings or Horror Show and you'll see why he's amazing!
He is the wonder high barritone from iced earth, certainly deserves a spot on this list! Excellent power and range
Always legend, forever Mat Barlow the powerful king of metal singing...
From the baritone to the tenor, this guy is standing on top of the Silver Mountain with Dio, looking down on the rest of the Rock/Metal genre vocalists.
To be very honest about Serj Tankian, he is one of the best vocalists on the rock genre, simply awesome with his voice and not to forget he blasted a lot of your so called "honest politicians", this guy's songs attracts with one's life, both as a citizen and also he has songs about your romantic life, as a huge fan I recommend you these two songs "Empty Walls" and "Honking Antelope", you'll know what I'm talking' about. Long live Serj, long live.
He should be higher! Definitely. He has not only got a great voice, but his music has got sense.
This guy's all about opinion. Personally, I think he's got the best range and repertoire of all of the modern metal singers, but I don't think enough people like him enough to consider him to be one of the top ten metal vocalists. I'd like him to be higher, but it probably won't happen.
Growl scream shout melodic operatic and distortion vocals. How the hell james hetfield is 4 ozzy with half octave sound on 7 and serj tankian is 26?
My list would be
3.ronnie james dio
the best vocalist, frontman, and the most craziest performer ever! see his lips and and heard his screams? - ronluna
Just listen to his scream at the end of Draw The Line
No one can match his screams. Araya has a true metal voice, listen to Angel of Death and you can feel the power he brings. m/ SLAYER m/
Slayer voice ( Tom Araya ) is power thrash metal voice in metal.
Tom has been doing it for over thirty years...
Joey's vocal range and signature voice is unmatchable! Just listen to the high notes on Spreading The Disease. It showcases his unique vocals perfectly.
If there are no joey in anthrax, anthrax wouldn't in the big 4
This guy is SIXTY and still going strong with his voice.
Rush is the greatest rock band of all time.
His voice in the 70s is as good as it gets. That is the perfect voice for metal in my opinion. Even if Rush wasn't a metal band
His lyrics/vocals/emotions are just phenomenal. Hetfield use to be my favortie, but after I discoverd the almighty MAYNARD! I never looked back. no one will ever be as godly as him. - nathanpablo
Ok. This guy is up there with all the grunge singers. He's better than Brian Johnson for sure. In terms of uniqueness, this guy takes the cake. He is instantly recognizable and has awesome range. In addition, he is one of the few singers that I know that actually sounds better when he sings louder. He should be in the top ten.
Maynard's range and power is unparalleled. He has more power in some of the clean notes he hits than most metal singers get with their screams.

Iron Maiden's Debut and Killers are total classics. Maiden's best albums in my opinion. This guy can sing so cool. His voice fits perfectly with maiden's early songs.
YOU WANT ME YOU TAUNT ME YOU'LL TORTURE ME BACK AT YOUR LAIR!
-phantom of the opera, Iron Maiden
Paul should be a little higher than 32 come on man
His voice is amazing good I don't know why dave mustaine is higher he sings like he has water in his mouth I mean he is a good singer but Kurt Cobain is better
I don't believe he is a hard rock singer. - zxm
Despite the looks and band sound,really smooth singer
He's simply awesome! If you don't know who he is, is it the vocalist of Volbeat!
HIS VOICE LITERALLY HAULED ME BACK FROM THE GRAVE, AND GAVE MY LIFE MEANING AND PURPOSE. ANGEL.V 1 Comment
Sammy you rock man! He should be in the top ten if you don't believe me listen to songs like heavy metal and, sweet hitchhiker. He can scream almost like janis joplin. If you haven't heard him your missing out.
The guy is now 66 years old and can STILL wail and hold a note better than most on this list! He deserves to be in the top 10-15, period.
he must be the best, the number one. you didn't hear him very well. he is a god and his lyrics are exellent
Yes better voice than most singers here... Great singer
His live performance's vocal is unbelievable..very clean..maybe not the best..but he should be on top 10
Best rock/metal singer in the World.V 3 Comments
Should be in top 10 considering 30 years of iconic and still going hard rock music
The great vocals all time
His music is not metal, but American pop
Great votive the best and that is that!
Of course Dickinson, Halford, and Dio take the cake right away, but Tate is truly a master at wailing! Just listen to any track of off Operation: Mindcrime or Empire and prepare to be blown away! He needs to be higher, at least at #10 at the very least if not in the top 5! Vote up, people!
If he's not in the top ten, there should not even be a list. I think people are misunderstanding this list. How could anyone ever compare the voices of Axl and guys like this? While Axl hit the scene hard and had a very unique voice, it was far from great and get him far away from the real contenders, especially Tate!
I can't believe he's not in the top 10!
#1 hands down! Amazing, high pitch singer! His love performances slay! I've seen him from the late 80s til this Sat night sing & he still got it! My favorite forever!V 12 Comments
Love his vocals on slip of the lip on their 1986 album dancing undercover
