Top Ten Most Overrated Metal SingersIronSabbathPriest
The Top Ten
You don't have to recommend him to anyone because to tell you the truth, he had very little influence on the metal genre.
I liked him better in Black Sabbath.
Listen to the song solitude by Black Sabbath then you might change your mind - Sabbath
More of a vocaliusyt, he is more of than a sinhgrr - LucretiaV 5 Comments
Not the most overrated but one of them
I'm not a fan of his vocal style. As if he's trying to act hard and tough. - IronSabbathPriest
Corey Taylor is one of few people on this list who deserves the attention and respect they receive. He's one of the best vocalists over the past 20 years.
They all try to act hard and tough. They all think they're Eddie Vedder, and they're not.
Not a metal singer. - IronSabbathPriest
More like a metal rapper.
Metal rapper is something impossible. Rappers have no business in metal. - Metal_Treasure
Ha ha, he is a rapper. not a metal vocalist. - zxm
I think he's starting to get boring after all these years. Sorry but I'm starting to lose interest in him. - Mumbizz01
He is awesome - JolteonIsAwesome
"Yeah" - James Hetfield - Brobusky
He was good in the 80s and 90s. But ever since St. Anger his voice has just gotten boring and not that great to be honest. It lacks aggression. So he instead feels the need to include stupid "yeah yeahs" in his songs. - IronSabbathPriest
He sounds weird in most of his songs.
Some songs he doesn't even sing in. He just talks. - Sabbath
He sounds like he's having a lisp in the chorus to Symphony of Destruction.
How is he overrated? Most people trash on his vocals, he is rarely praised as a vocalist. - LadyBanshee
What is Jonathan Davis doing here? are you people high?
I like him, because I love Korn - jack2244
I get your point but I wouldn't compare him with Corey. Anselmo changed his singing style in order to sound like a tough guy and this was a matter of choice. But Anselmo can also sing in a different way and I will ever recommend the song 'Burnnn' from the 80s as a proof - Corey has never been able to sing like that. - Metal_Treasure
Not sure if this pathetic wannabe-tough-guy loser actually thinks he can sing, or if he's aware that he sucks and is just in it for the money. He basically got famous because the guitar guy in Pantera got shot
Phil Anselmo is a racist. He's only famous because he was in Pantera. Not a good vocalist
I love his vocals! - ryanrimmelV 2 Comments
I don't think he sings metal so why pay attention to him. - Metal_Treasure
Yup. - Disasterpiece
He has a good voice, but when he does those unnecessary "AH AH AHS" in the middle of verses it brings his music down. I like Disturbed though - ryanrimmel
Not a metal singer.
Should be higher.
Compared to artists like Prince and Ray Charles (different genres but same principle), Mitch had made almost zero impact in the music industry, even after his untimely death. Not only did he have extremely limited vocal range, his lows were horrible unless he was cupping the mic, especially during live performances.
Definitely overrated nowadays by scene kids due to his death. His death was unfortunate, but that doesn't change the fact that he was a godawful vocalist with zero skill or technique.
Metalcore is the only bad type of metal I know about. - emilk
Go see him at #5 on the list "Top Metal Singers". His singing style isn't even metal. By the way, do you think he sings metal? I don't. That's called overrated. - Metal_Treasure
I like Children of Bodom, but I'm not a fan of the monotone vocals of melodic death metal bands. Either sing properly or if you're going to growl, growl with some aggressive music. Enough said. - IronSabbathPriest
Yeah... I don't really like mainstream nu metal. - IronSabbathPriest
Rage Against the Machine isn't nu-metal though... they're alternative metal
He isn't a metal singer. Never been. - Metal_Treasure
He sold out. He made a song with Ke$ha years ago.
Why isn't this guy higher? - NikBrusk
