Most Underrated Rock Vocalistsfireinside96 Ever get tired of seeing the same vocalists on every single list. Well your time of saying ,"Why not him here, or them there," are over. Let's bow down to the voices of the rockers we now and want the lists to love.
The Top Ten
He's a vocal god. The most unique combination of beautiful angelic soft tone and raw powerful tone - you can hear them in one song. The most expressive and emotive voice I've ever heard. Unmatched tonal versatility. Awesome technical skills.
Demons and Wizards: Path of glory, Love's tragedy asunder, My last sunrise, Crimson king.
Blind Guardian: The bard's song, Majesty, Thorn, Into The storm, Sacred Worlds, Otherland. - Metal_Treasure
Just listen to Child In Time! You'll get everything ;)
His screaming in child in time was so cool.But most of time he doesn't involve in best metal singers.But always includes in most underrated singers. - zxm
For sure he does scream powerfully and beautyfully, and most of all all, he is even better on stage than in studio.
And it's not just about screaming. Ian has done all sorts of things - from singing with Black Sabbath to duos with Pavarotti - and he' s all done that greatly
Not underrated at all.
Delp is CRIMINALLY UNDERRATED. In my book, he's the greatest rock vocalist of all, bar none. His closest "competitor" is Freddie Mercury.
Delp id have a fantastic range, but what puts him over the top is his beautiful timbre. His voice just sounds amazing, with a nice, rounded sound tempered with a little tartness.
The only reason I think he doesn't get more votes is that Boston has put out a very small body of work over the years.
His voice was also very versatile across a variety of genres. If you don't believe me, check out his albums with RTZ and his work on the "Barry Goudreau" solo album. "Mean Woman Blues" from Goudreau will show you what I mean.
Hands down; best rock singer with Paul Rogers probably second. Brad had a great vocal range; better than Freddie Mercury.
The BEST vocal range. One of several reasons there aren't many Boston tribute bands. His voice just can't be matched.
Gotta admit, he's really underrated. - zxmV 2 Comments
His vocal skills and technique are still the best known in metal, which means he IS the BEST metal singer. But he is never in the top 10, not even in the top 50 metal singers.
Helloween - The Tale That Wasn't Right; I want Out. - Metal_Treasure
This guy is a definition of underrated.
Even if you don't vote him check out these songs because you are gonna love them and his voice.
Rainbow - Can't Let You Go, I Surrender, Stranded.
Yngwie - Rising Force, Dreaming.
Deep Purple - The Cut Runs Deep, Fortuneteller, King of Dreams.
Such an underrated singer. He had one of the best voices in music history that can never be copied.
His dark voice is very cool.
Thin Lizzy - Killer On The Loose, Angel of death, Cold Sweat, Thunder And Lightning. - Metal_Treasure
Chris Cornell is mostly just known for Soundgarden, but since then he's done tins of amazing songs. He's not just an amazing singer, but also a gifted songwriter that weaves gentle ballods and powerful rock into sole albums or song, and truly deserved the same amount of fame as Kurt Cobain.V 1 Comment
His solo music is just phenomenal. He has also taken a step aside from rock music and proven himself to be talented composer in classical music.
he really should earn more credits. he sings of freedom too. - freezerman75V 1 Comment
This is a huge voice - try Melancholy, Dracula, Damien. - Metal_Treasure
Amazing vocal skills. Criminally underrated.
He was rumoured to have busted PA systems because his voice is one of the loudest ones in metal and hard rock. Bonnet is also known among the vocal experts for his l-o-o-o-o-o-ng and powerful sustain. Poor PA systems ...
He replaced Dio in Rainbow and by the way Bonnet is not a worse singer than Dio (this comes from a die hard Dio fan).
A hard rock song: Rainbow - All Night Long.
A metal song (early symphonic metal): Rainbow - Eyes Of The World (1979).
Alcatrazz - Only One Woman. - Metal_Treasure
Brought Anthrax from run of the mill to the Big 4.
Primal Fear - Strike, King For A Day, Diabolus, The Man (That I Don't Know). - Metal_Treasure
