Greatest Heavy Metal/Hard Rock Vocalists


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Russell Allen Russell Allen

This man seriously deserves to be much higher. How many other vocalists on this list have a four octave vocal range and amazing clean and rough tones? Listen to the Accolade to get a taste of why Russell should be far, far higher than 48. He may not be one of the most famous, but is undoubtedly one of the best.

He's not one of the best. HE IS THE BEST.

He's one of the best ten.
But no one knows him.

66 Till Lindemann Till Lindemann

The most masculine voice ever and its not artificial its his natural voice unlike others above who have to scream to sound strong.

Really magnificent and extraordinary voice, along with good lyrics written by himself and also quite a showman on stage

Till do something special. Surely he can be better if he would keep singing in a classical way. Rhythmic and melodic. Perfect.

Till Lindemann is God.

73 Miljenko Matijevic Miljenko Matijevic

Great vocalist from steelheart, a very underrated band! He has a solid voice, and EXCELLENT high range! Should be at least top 15

He is THE BEST. I've never heard a vocalist with his range or amazing voice. Honestly if Steelheart were more famous, you would see him at the top. Mili is a singing god, please have a listen and you will understand what I mean

The greatest vocalist on the face of the earth

He is one of the most underrateded and unlucky rock vocalist of all time. He had a huge accident before he reached his prime and he was hitting super high notes in pure voice not using falsetto, screaming, singing songs hard as hell which were covered with notes over A5... highest note he reached was B5 I think. If he was borned earlier and had good songs he could have been one of the most famous heavy metal vocal in the world.
