The Contenders: Page 3

41 Jarkko Ahola - Northern Kings, Teräsbetoni, Ahola Jarkko Ahola - Northern Kings, Teräsbetoni, 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.

His intro scream to 'Don't Bring Me Down' by Northern Kings is epic.
He loves screaming and does that on almost every song. - Metal_Treasure

42 Randy Blythe - Lamb of God Randy Blythe - Lamb of God David Randall "Randy" Blythe is the vocalist and lyricist of American heavy metal band Lamb of God and side-project band Halo of Locusts.

Godly vocal range; highs, lows and everything in between. Randy has also been the frontman for death metal band, Cannabis Corpse- a marijuana-based parody band of Cannibal Corpse. He has, on Lamb of God's latest album, also used clean singing in the song Insurrection.

Listen to songs like; King Me, One Gun and Ruin.

This guy has to be in the top ten! I would seriously doubt a list that places Randy Blythe as the 62nd best screamer.

What Randy is in 36 place!? He should be in top 3 at least really what

Should be first

43 Steve Marbs - Dark Funeral
44 Danny Worsnop - Asking Alexandria

Danny has a way of making trust that what he is singing about is real and need ALL of our attention right now. I believe what he sings in his songs and it just the voice he has and the skill in which he used to develop his craft. Love love love asking Alexandria

Best singer/screamer out there. Isn't anyone who done it better, before he lost his voice.

Very Christian and very underrated band! Mattie is relentless! - AngryByrd

58 Eric Adams - Manowar Eric Adams - Manowar Eric Adams has been the singer of the American heavy metal band Manowar since its inception in 1980. Previously, he sang for a group called LOOKS, a band which also included future Manowar bassist and childhood friend, Joey DeMaio.

Ok, most can't stand Manowar and think they're a funny act, but let's face it: Eric Adams can sing really high, loud and include the best drive ever at it. Although the years passed and he lost a few of his power, we're talking about a dude that drinks beer while screaming some really hard notes (check The Absolute Power DVD). To add more, his "normal voice" is beautiful. That's the way a true heavy metal singer must sound.

Check Battle Hymn in Leeds, 1984; Hail and Kill in NYC, 1989; Heart of Steel in Lisbon; or a video comparison between his performance both studio and live.

59 Bruce Dickinson - Iron Maiden Bruce Dickinson - Iron Maiden Paul Bruce Dickinson, known professionally as Bruce Dickinson, is an English musician, airline pilot, and broadcaster. He is most well known for being the lead singer in heavy metal band Iron Maiden and his solo career.

Yeah, yeah, I know this one got old too. But Bruce delivered some of the best performances ever in the history of metal singing. Well, I just saw the last Rock in Rio (2013) and the little guy just nailed Aces High, first song of the encore. Come on, if he can sing it by the end of a 90min concert, I'm sure he still got it. It's incredible how his voice changed over the years, kept getting better and he managed to improvise even more on his live performances. And when you think all of this wasn't enough, he can sing one of his best solo tunes sitted in a damn limousine. Yeah, that's what he can do.

Check Total Eclipse, Hammersmith 82; Aces High, Rock in Rio 85; Hallowed Be Thy Name, Raising Hell 93; Tears of the Dragon, Limousine 94.

60 Daniel Heiman - Lost Horizon Daniel Heiman - Lost Horizon

He might be singing in an alternative band right now, but hey, you don't need a long career in metal to deliver classics (Halford had a terrible Project with that dude from Nine Inch Nails, but we love him anyway). Daniel has some of the greatest and probably the highest screams in the history of metal, which led to create a cult of fans around the world. And the dude just released like 4 álbuns in the process, but you should definitely check the Lost Horizon albuns, where he got this best of those lums. There are just a few live performances recorded, but you can listen to this marvelous voice and what a loss he leaving metal we have to live with.

Check the final part of Heart of Storm; check Heed rehearsal live in studio; check the famous facemelter scream from Highlander - The One (although I prefer the nanana parts).

The best metal singer of all time.
