81 Russell Allen Russell Allen

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

83 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.

84 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.

88 Sebastian Bach Sebastian Bach Sebastian Philip Bierk, known professionally as Sebastian Bach, is a Canadian heavy metal singer who achieved mainstream success as frontman of Skid Row from 1987-96. Since his departure from Skid Row, he has had many television roles, acted in Broadway plays, and leads a solo career.

This singer for Skid Row was one of the best in the 80s-90s even though the band or its songs are not always in the top 10. This guy could actually sing, scream, growl, and had great stage presence. From metal ballads to angry songs, this guy rocked!

The unreal voice. What a shame he is here.

89 Kyo Kyo Kyo is a Japanese musician, poet and singer-songwriter. He is best known as the vocalist of the metal band Dir en grey. He has been with the band since its inception in 1997 and was formerly in La:Sadie's.

Most talented and charismatic singer I've heard from any genre. This man and his voice is my god.

Greatest voice ever! He can do ANYTHING, any genre, any sound, any noise, screams, sings, yells, harmonic voice, disturbing growls & can even imitatet a scratching vinyl record - simply amazing!

Simply the best! And therefore... The first. No doubt

99 Tony Kakko Tony Kakko Toni Kristian "Tony" Kakko is a Finnish musician, composer and vocalist. He is mainly known as the vocalist, primary songwriter, and creative force in the band Sonata Arctica since 1996.

A ridiculously under-rated vocalist and lyricist. By all means you may not like power metal. But this guys voice is simply amazing.

He is like Adele of the metal scene. If you ever had your heart broken, he has sung about the exact feelings you have felt

Seriously, 77th -. -? Should at least above Ozzy and Grohl. But of course, this is not a contest of skill, but of fame, and in that Sonata Arctica is seriously lacking. Just listen to Wolf and Raven or Wildfire, and you will see why Tony Kakko should be, no is, one hell of a singer.

Best voice ever, really, it's so sweet... Whenever I listen Sonata Arctica I really think about "her", the girl that some songs talk about. It's my favourite band.

100 Steve Lee

He should be in the top 5 to say the least - listen to his live recordings! He sounded as good live as their studio sound. He would never hold back with the high notes and screams unlike so many other so-called great singers do all the time. He could sing Deep Purple and Led Zepplin as good as the originals...sorry - it's of Rock's greatest losses and tragedies when he died. I'm a fan forever, Steve.

It's a pity for the world, that Steve Lee remains pretty unknown, I would say. But he is one of the best singers of all times for sure!

Steve Lee was one of the top 5 vocalist of all time. The tremendous power and range of his voice was unequaled.

Sadly missed a truly great rock vocalist across the whole range stunning on Melodic songs
