5 Tomi Joutsen Tomi Joutsen
6 Steffen Kummerer Steffen Kummerer Steffen Kummerer (born June 1, 1985) is a German guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and producer. He is the leader, main songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist for the (technical) death metal band Obscura as well as the black metal band Thulcandra.

He has always used different vocal styles and he has never delivered the vocals (growls) only with low, guttural or "screechy" intonation all the time. He has even included some cleans from time to time.

But I think that on the 2018 album he achieved even more varied vocal delivery. - Metal_Treasure

7 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.

Provided vox for Ømni by Angra. His voice has always sounded good. - Metal_Treasure

8 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.

Album: Apocalypse by Primal Fear.
This dude's got 4 octaves in the modal register and sounds a lot like Rob Halford. - Metal_Treasure

10 Patrick Loisel

Vocalist for the band Augury - Metal_Treasure
