41 Cristina Scabbia Cristina Scabbia Cristina Adriana Chiara Scabbia is an Italian singer and lyricist, best known as one of the two vocalists in the Italian Gothic metal band Lacuna Coil.

Aside from her amazing voice and looks, she comes off as an awesome human being. I would love to meet her someday, but in the meantime, I can at least listen to her sing with an awesome band.

I have voted her for many reasons... her voice, how she performs live concerts, her beauty! And well, because she is Italian! (I am not Italian but I love her country so much! :D) KEEP ON ROCKING CRIS!

Cristina represents the perfect mix between the ethereal kind of voice of the goth metal scene and the true rock singer! She rules!

This woman sings great, whatever song...

42 Johan Hegg Johan Hegg

I cannot believe that Johan Hegg is at #41 on this list while Corey Taylor is at #6. Johan is the very best voice in all of death metal in my opinion and deserves a spot much higher on this list.

43 Tobias Sammet Tobias Sammet Tobias Sammet is a German metal musician, best known as the vocalist and primary songwriter of the power metal band Edguy, as well as the founder, main singer and bassist of the metal opera Avantasia.

top 10!
Edguy songs: Nailed to the Wheel; Sacrifice. - Metal_Treasure

I really like the song 'In my defense'.

No.55? Oh dear, according to vocal experts breakdowns, this guy is No 6.
Here's the real Top 10 based on detailed analyses: 1. Michael Kiske; 2. Geoff Tate; 3. Rob Halford; 4. Hansi Kürsch; 5. Roy Khan; 6. Tobias Sammet; 7. Russell Allen; 8. Matthew Barlow; 9. Dio; 10. Bruce Dickinson.
Most of these guys are not even in the top 50 on this list... - Metal_Treasure

48 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!

50 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!

51 Chuck Schuldiner Chuck Schuldiner Charles Michael "Chuck" Schuldiner was an American singer, songwriter, and guitarist, best known as the founder and vocalist, guitarist and bassist of the American heavy metal band Death. He is considered the most influential figure in Death Metal, with some publications referring to Chuck as the "Godfather more.

Seriously, Chuck's voice is the best. His high and low notes are just amazing. In "SPiritual Healinh (album)" his voice scares me. In Painkiller (Judas Priest cover), those screams are just insane. I think he burned his vocal chords. And it's pretty sad knowing that Painkiller was the last song he recorded, given the fact that is so good.

Best of any death meal, mainly progressive. - Lucretia

Chuck below Durst?

Why is M Shadows ahead of Chuck Schuldiner, Tom Araya, Dave Mustaine, and Bobby Ellsworth? - jack2244

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

55 Bon Scott Bon Scott Ronald Belford "Bon" Scott was a Scottish-born Australian rock musician, best known for being the lead singer and lyricist of Australian hard rock band AC/DC from 1974 until his death in 1980. He was born in Forfar and lived in Kirriemuir, Scotland, for 5 years before moving to Melbourne, Australia, more. V 1 Comment

57 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..

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 Roy Khan Roy Khan Roy Sætre Khantatat, is a Norwegian singer-songwriter. Commonly known as Roy Khan or simply Khan, he was the lead vocalist for the symphonic power metal band Kamelot from 1997 to his departure in 2011. He co-wrote most of Kamelot's songs with the band's guitarist and founder Thomas Youngblood during more.

Roy should be higher than some of the other questionable options on this list. Although he's left the music business for good, he will be remembered for a long time for that fantastic voice. He's got one of the most impressive voices I've ever heard.

He definitely deserves to be placed higher in terms of metal vocals. He put his skills as a classically trained opera vocalist into metal like no other vocalist could. He was truly a star in the symphonic/power metal genre.

He has amazing voice.why is so low in the list? He must be at least in top 10

Smooth controlled vocals. Roy is extremely consistent both live and on studio albums.
