47 Jorn Lande Jorn Lande Jørn Lande is a Norwegian metal and hard rock singer known for his solo career as Jorn, and providing vocals for Avantasia, Masterplan, Ark, Beyond Twilight, Millenium, Allen/Lande, Mundanus Imperium, Vagabond, The Snakes, Ayreon.

Jorn Lande is an amazing singer. Everyone should listen to the album "Burn the sun" from his project ARK. His singing is extraordinary and so original... As well as all the music in this CD. Nothing is comparable to this in metal. If in this list I could vote for more artists I would also vote Freddie Mercury and Ronnie James Dio

Even by the contemporary metal greats he's considered one of the best voices. This coming from the experts!

Never been able to find another male metal voice with the same intensity and passion. If I could marry a voice, this one would be it.

He is the ultimate singer. People only voting for popularity, it means nothing! When you talk about quality and performance, the popularity just don't matter!

49 Bobby Ellsworth Bobby Ellsworth Robert Ellsworth, mainly known as Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth, is the lead vocalist of New Jersey thrash metal band Overkill.

No words! Bobby has to be first, with no doubt the most talented vocalist in history of thrash and broadly in histiry of metal!

50 Floor Jansen Floor Jansen Floor Jansen is a Dutch singer-songwriter and vocal coach. She is currently vocalist of Nightwish and leader of Revamp.

Floor Jansen has the greatest range I have EVER heard in a singer's voice. She can so from belting to opera to growling with not a single problem. Her voice is 4-5 times more powerful than the average singer as well. She has a beautiful, soft voice for ballads and a hard, rocking voice for the heavier songs. Listen to 'After Forever - Beautiful Emptiness', 'After Forever - Evoke' or 'ReVamp - Here's My Hell' for great examples of her voice.

I can't believe Floor Jansen is this low. I mean, have you not heard the new Nightwish album with her? She has the most amazing voice (not to mention very powerful) of any singer I've ever heard. Just listen to songs such as Shudder Before the Beautiful or The Greatest Show on Earth by Nightwish. She has a terrific voice for these songs. She fits with Nightwish so well.

That a metal wannabe like Amy Lee can make top 10 while the goddess of metal is stuck outside of it is a travesty of the worst kind. Just listen to the latest ReVamp album.

Wow. Not even 1% yet. Her voice is the best in ALL of Metal.

He was born in Forfar and lived in Kirriemuir, Scotland, for 5 years before moving to Melbourne, Australia, more.

I love him but he isn't metal - Metal_Treasure

53 Grutle Kjellson Grutle Kjellson Grutle Kjellson is a Norwegian vocalist and bass player for the progressive viking metal band Enslaved.

Yes! Grutle is fantastic between the black metal and clean vocals!

54 Ralf Scheepers Ralf Scheepers Ralf Scheepers is the vocalist for German heavy metal band Primal Fear. He has a relatively high-pitched tenor-esque singing voice and sometimes uses a shriek reminiscent of Judas Priest's Rob Halford, although it is his baritone lows which give him a near four-octave range in the modal register.

He's one of the most talented and skilled metal singers. His total range is over 5 octaves. Effortless sustain of 15 seconds live. He sounds pretty much like Rob Halford. - Metal_Treasure

56 Alexi Laiho Alexi Laiho

better known for being an amazing guitarist, you still can't deny his brilliant voice, thats different, but still great

I would like to see Alexi at the 1st place... He deserves it.

Great guitarist and a great singer... definitely deserves to be on top 10... but one thing I don't understand here is why these prats put random singers' name who are not ever metal, this tread is about best metal singers you idiots... so be relavant..

He should be in the top three - end of discussion!

58 Jared Leto Jared Leto

The first two albums have a lot of elements of Metal, especially the first in terms of instrumentals and the second in terms of screamo. His voice is so diverse, he can do powerful 10 second long screams like in From Yesterday or Buddha For Mary or sing beautiful acoustics like A Modern Myth or The Story.

59 Glenn Danzig Glenn Danzig
60 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 should be in no1... Better than any singer. Has the potential to sing even at the highest octave pitch along with speed guitars...


he should be no1... super high voice.
