The Top Ten
He has an unique and specific singing voice, but as people talking about him, he definitely get way too much credits... - somekindofaguy
He is a funny character and a good singer, but he wasn't the one who played guitar, bass or drums on the songs. - SoldierOfFortune
I actually like Manson. He's at least original and allows himself to make whatever music he wants. His persona is...interesting, but some of his music is awesome. - cjWriter1997
The most overrated, no question about it... according to the Metal Archives he not even a metal artist... - somekindofaguy

It’s not his fault majority of his fans are crying fanboys that can’t handle any criticism of their master.
Not a metal musician.
I know a lot of metalheads like Mayhem, but they only had a few obscure EXTREMELY lo-fi demos with Dead. The reason he's loved is for his supposed crazy live stunts, which most metalheads had probably never seen. Dead was great, but people need to stop saying he was the best metal vocalist just because everyone else does.
If you want to hear some studio stuff I would check out the band he was in before Mayhem, Morbid. They released a demo called “December Moon”, his vocals are well captured on that. You can get the compilation album “Year of the Goat” for even more material. His vocals are less brutal and creepier than what you hear in Mayhem. Listen to this and you’ll see he gets all the praise he deserves. RIP Pelle.
He's a rock singer and he has a good voice, but
Ronnie James Dio
Michael Kiske and Joe Lynn Turner beats him... - somekindofaguy
If Kirk Hammett is on top 9, then he should be at least 100 place lower than him. He isn't really overrated. I know his vocal skills isn't that much good like many other metal singers. But I like his voice. - zxm
Great rhythm guitarist and songwriter but not a very good singer.
Your not suppose to be a good singer in Thrash metal, that is not what thrash metal is about - germshep24
