Top Metal Singers


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Chino Moreno Chino Moreno Chino Moreno is an American musician. He is best known as the lead vocalist and contributing guitarist of Deftones.

Who ever made this list is an idiot. To put Fred Durst ahead of Chino is the biggest slap in the nads ever. For Real. This list is bull crap. J. Davis is way better than almost ever single other vocals on the list as well.

Very versatile, am shocked he is not higher as well..

Why Chino is so far down the list is way beyond me

48? What? Chino Moreno is a legend! He should be on top of matt tuck, david drainman, zp threat, and aaron lewis at least!

63 Dave Grohl Dave Grohl David Eric "Dave" Grohl is an American rock musician, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer. He is best known as the drummer for the grunge band Nirvana and the vocalist/guitarist for the alternative rock band Foo Fighters.

He doesn't even sing metal. And there are at least 500 metal singers performing with more energy and passion than him. - Metal_Treasure

This is a reply to the visitor who wrote "No one sings with more energy and passion than the Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl." - Metal_Treasure

1st, he's NOT metal.
2nd, every average metal singer is way better than him. - Metal_Treasure

No one sings with more energy and passion than the Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl.

64 Don Dokken
65 Jon Oliva Jon Oliva John Nicholas Oliva, known as Jon Oliva, is an American composer, multi-instrumentalist and singer. Co-founder of the metal band Savatage and the rock opera Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

67 Fabio Lione Fabio Lione Fabio Tordiglione is an Italian singer and lyricist who has sung with many music bands including Rhapsody of Fire, Labyrinth, Ayreon, Angra, Vision Divine, Hollow Haze, Kaledon, Ancient Bards, and Athena.

This is one of the best power metal singers out there. He's sung for 4 different metal bands in the SAME time!

68 Udo Dirkschneider Udo Dirkschneider Udo"Hassan"Dirkschneider is a German heavy metal singer who rose to fame with German heavy metal band Accept.
69 Jacoby Shaddix

Well, just listen to him and you'll understand, one thing about ben burnley: he's actually not so good, they clean his voice a lot in the lp's, he had lung cancer (correct me if I'm wrong) so his voice is kinda bad, listen to bb in live. (though they're one of my favourite bands)

70 Matt Barlow Matt Barlow Matthew 'Matt' Barlow is an American heavy metal singer and police officer. He was the lead singer for Iced Earth in the 1990s and 2000s. He is currently the lead singer for Ashes of Ares. After the September 11 terrorist attacks Matt Barlow decided to become a police officer and contribute to the "real more.

It's a duplicate. Go vote Matthew Barlow - currently #15. - Metal_Treasure

71 Jens Kidman
72 Sully Erna Sully Erna Salvatore Paul "Sully" Erna is the American vocalist and guitarist for the American hard rock band Godsmack.

What is Sully Erna doing as the 48th best metal singer of the list? He should join the top ten metal singers. His vocals are very though and can rock the whole world.

Metallica may be a better band but Sully Erna is the best vocalist and singer. Better than Robert Plant and better than Ronnie James Dio. He needs to be number one followed by David Draiman and James Hetfield.

73 Fred Durst Fred Durst William Frederick "Fred" Durst is an American musician and film director. Durst is best known as the vocalist of the nu metal band Limp Bizkit, formed in 1994, with whom he has released six studio albums.

Actually a decent screamer..

Great vocalist, he is might be the best rapper ever my opinion.

Not even metal - Lucretia

74 Howard Jones Howard Jones Howard Jones (Born July 20th, 1970) is an American Heavy Metal vocalist. He currently fronts the band Light the Torch (Formerly Devil You Know), but is best known for his tenure in the band Killswitch Engage from 2002 to 2012 and was a vocalist for the now defunct Blood Had Been Shed.

It tears me that this guy dosen't make it higher. Howard Jones got the power of an opera singer and growls better than the majority of all these new metal bands. And still, it feels like a waste whenever he growls because his voice is so fantastic in every aspect. Listen to End of heartache live at download 2007 and you'll see what I mean. The fact that he is black makes it so much cooler because of the lack of black people in the metal industry. - nonofyall


He has a nice and deep voice that blends perfectly into the music. - Pegasister12

Best singer of all times!

75 Matt Tuck

Amazing singer and amazing at screaming also. He is an amazing guitar player also. He for sure deserves to be in the top 10 for sure.

Seriously guys? SERIOUSLY?! You have a list about the best metal singers, and Russell Allen isn't even on it? Every critic and metal musician everywhere cites him as THE best vocalist in present times,

Seriously Russell Allen at 71? People just do not know his work... I cannot think of anything else...

Whilst I acknowledge other more popular choices... Because their bands are more commercial, this guy's work with Symphony X, Adrenaline Mob, Allen-Lande is mind-boggling! Hard to choose, but to ME he is the very best metal vocalist.

He should be in #7 or 8. - Metal_Treasure

77 Alissa White-Gluz Alissa White-Gluz Alissa White-Gluz is a Canadian vocalist, best known as the former lead vocalist and one of the founding members of the Canadian metal band, The Agonist, and current lead vocalist for the Swedish melodic death metal group, Arch Enemy.

She's got a wicked growl, and can also sing beautiful clean vocals. She's got a wide range of talent, and a powerful stage presence. I'm not even a big fan of scream/growl kinda vocals, but through her work with Kamelot and Delain I've become a fan of Alissa.

78 Peter Steele Peter Steele Petrus Thomas Ratajczyk, better known by his stage name Peter Steele, was the lead singer, bassist and composer for the gothic metal band Type O Negative.
79 Suzuka Nakamoto Suzuka Nakamoto Suzuka Nakamoto, known by her stage names Suzuka and Su-Metal, is a Japanese idol, singer and model.

Her Voice is Beautiful, Powerful, Gentle and Clear. - Nobu
