The Top Ten

1 Michael Kiske Michael Kiske Michael Kiske is a singer best known as the former lead vocalist for the German power metal band Helloween.

I admire his vocal skills - his vocal technique has no weak spots (almost). But he has 'sweetness' in the voice. - Metal_Treasure

2 Ozzy Osbourne Ozzy Osbourne John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne was born on December 3, 1948. He is also known as ''The Prince of Darkness''. Ozzy is an English singer, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of the band Black Sabbath. Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath more.

He has pain in the voice and not aggression. And I laugh hard every time I read that Symptom of the Universe was the first thrash song. - Metal_Treasure

3 ZP Theart ZP Theart ZP Theart is a South African singer, and songwriter, best known as the former singer of British power metal band DragonForce.

He has a very poppy voice. - Metal_Treasure

Her voice isn't aggressive but it's more powerful than Sharon and Simone voices and this slightly changes the perception of her voice - I mean, Tarja voice isn't that "easy listening". - Metal_Treasure

8 Timo Kotipelto Timo Kotipelto Timo Antero Kotipelto is the vocalist of the Finnish power metal band Stratovarius and is the creator and vocalist of the power metal band Kotipelto.

His voice matches good with instrumental music. Because Stratovarius
is quite a soft band (I mean comparing with other power metal bands). - zxm
