Nddot metal - Lucretia

122 Christian Alvestam

Listen to Scar Symmetry, come on.. 2 vocalists had to replace this guy..

123 Greg Puciato

Brilliant 'Prancer' the best metal song ever. Vocal power with insane showmanship. Alas, Dillinger Escape Plan no more.

Versatile vocalist & Amazing frontman. Insane.

125 Daniel Heiman Daniel Heiman

I can believe this! No Heiman on the list, by far best vocalist from the new age, for me best ever! Two Lost Horizon albums are one of the best metal albums ever and true showcase of his singing!

Daniel Heiman at 155? Next joke please...

126 Sharon den Adel Sharon den Adel Sharon den Adel, Dutch singer and the vocalist of symphonic rock band Within Temptation. more.

I saw Within Temptation live about a year ago, and I have to say Sharon was flawless. Whether or not you like her style is a matter of opinion, but what she does, she is extremely good at.

127 Burton C Bell

Fear Factory's singer not even in this list is an absolute joke. Burtons voice is amazing.

128 George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher George George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher is an American extreme metal vocalist for the American death metal band Cannibal Corpse and the lesser-known melodic death metal band Paths of Possession.

Look at the size of this guys neck. Definition of metal singing

His brutality is enormous. - Fretto

Vocalist more - Lucretia

130 Andre Matos Andre Matos André Coelho Matos is a Brazilian vocalist, pianist and composer. He was involved in the heavy metal bands Viper, Angra and Shaaman.

Unless he's considered pop singer, which he is not, he should be at least in the top ten to those who do listen.

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

134 Layne Staley Layne Staley Layne Thomas Staley was an American musician who served as the lead singer and co-songwriter of the rock band Alice in Chains, which he founded with guitarist Jerry Cantrell in Seattle, Washington in 1987. Alice in Chains rose to international fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990s. more.

Very powerful voice, great range. He and Jerry had some of the best harmonies on the planet. Still listening to their songs today, never get tired of Layne's voice.

If it comes dow to rock vocalists Layne is number 1. But I understand that heavy metal singers will dominate this list because that's considered as pure metal and Alice in Chains is something else.

Awesome... Just... Awesome. You can hear the pain in his voice. Because of him, I can safely say I'll never do drugs.

Grunge is not metal, but somewhat close - Lucretia

Only 0.4% of votes... In all honesty this guy has a much more supreme voice than any other vocalist on this silly list, just listen to his music to find out. According to recent studies a list including Mike Patton and other world class singers were put into a list and Mike Patton emerged #1 where Devin Townsend emerged #10 that's how good this guy is as Mike Patton will always be the bench mark to be honest

Can sing anything from extreme growling (Strapping Young Lad) to clean high vocals (Devin Townsend Project / Devin Townsend Band)

Has anyone heard this guy? His voice is simply beautiful, and he can mix singing with screaming, shifting between the styles with ease.

Absolutely Amazing. Can perfectly perform any style perfectly and switch between them with ease. Great live too.

One of the most original artist! This band do so many amazing songs! He should be in the top 5 at least, all of the singers before him in this list aren't as good and creative than Manson

One of the greatest performers of all time. 'enough said.
