Marilyn Manson. I have to admit, Marilyn Manson's voice is very weird, but good in it's own way, and it's also gripping. Ozzy's voice doesn't fit for heavy metal at all, and there's nothing really special about Ozzy's voice. - Kiyomi
Manson by far. For those who claim Ozzy is the Prince of Darkness, I counter that Manson is the King of Darkness. He is superior to Ozzy in every way - Shake_n_Bake13
Superior to Ozzy in every way except for songwriting and singing - SoldierOfFortune
Ozzy Osbourne. I don't think anyone would actually vote for manson - ryanrimmel
Ozzy. I don't like him much though. Manson sounds like a dying animal bleeding to death - LucretiaV 2 Comments
Korn and Deftones are the only nu-metal bands I actually enjoy, and I hate rap metal. I never was a big Faith No More fan and I hated the Anthrax/Public Enemy song - ryanrimmel
My answer is: neither! - Metal_Treasure
Nu, definitely - EliHbk
Nu Metal is comes very close to Rap Metal. Nu Metal is basically Rap Metal with downtuned guitars, screamed vocals and electronics (although there are Nu Metal bands that don't have any rapping).
But my vote goes to Nu Metal, because Nu Metal has good bands like Linkin Park and Hollywood Undead. I have to admit, those bands also have Rap Metal songs, but my vote goes to Nu Metal anyway. - Kiyomi
If you like black or death metal there is going to be both. - Lucretia
Gore all the way - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX
SATAN! - SoldierOfFortune
Chainsaw - EliHbk
Does not matter to me - Lucretia

Before you answer - some examples:

Great Baritones - Dio, Hansi Kürsch, Geoff Tate, Matt Barlow, Russel Allen, Phil Anselmo, Eric Adams;
James Hetfield - different singing style but great in his own right.
PS: Geoff Tate - very high baritone, close to low tenor. - Metal_Treasure
While most of the classics are from the 20th century, there is a ton of great metal still being made. - Songsta41
20. Black metal and death and thrash were at there peak. Nows there's like, nu metal and metalcore and stuff - Lucretia
20th - SoldierOfFortune
20th. - KiyomiV 1 Comment
There is a right answer. - IronSabbathPriestV 1 Comment
I actually prefer Rob. He was a cool replacement for Newsted. But neither of them beat the legendary Cliff Burton. - IronSabbathPriest
Definitely Newsted. Honestly, I like him even better than Cliff Burton (my apologies to whoever that offended). The bass on the Black Album was just phenomenal - Shake_n_Bake13
Newsted probably. I'd rather have Trujillo in Suicidal Tendencies cause I love them - ryanrimmel
Jason Newsted because with Metallcia he made and Justice for all. - Lucretia
Definitely Nine Inch Nails - ryanrimmel
It doesn't matter because none of them is metal. - Metal_Treasure
NIN, but is it metal? I'm not sure - 9/26/17 - EliHbk
Um, neither. I hate both. - Lucretia
Children of Bodom. They are one of the single coolest bands I've ever heard in my life - ryanrimmel
Amon Amarth with no doubt. - IronSabbathPriest
Amon Amarth I guess - Lucretia
Children of Bodom - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX
I know I'll get hate for this, but I choose Manson. I love Slayer but Manson has more variety than them.
There's only one correct answer here - Slayer. - Metal_Treasure
Slayer. Again, who would take Manson? - ryanrimmel
Slayer, duh. Slayer is amazing... Manson is fake cool msc - LucretiaV 3 Comments
I'll take Manson on this one - Shake_n_Bake13
Again, Rob Zombie is 100x better - ryanrimmel
Rob - EliHbk
Oh come on, this is a joke? I love them - 05yusuf09
None, because they both are not metal. - Lucretia
Korn. Not a big fan of Limp Bizkit - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX
KoRn. I rarely listen to Limp Bizkit, but the songs 'Break Stuff', 'Nookie' and 'Gold Cobra' told me to stop listening to them. Those songs were atrocious. KoRn is pretty good. - KiyomiV 2 Comments
This question has 2 sides:
1) what is more important in metal?
Guitar, because there are metal guitar instrumentals (no vocals) but metal is not possible acapella (only vocals).
2) what do you prefer, bands with better vocals or better guitars?
I prefer bands with better vocals because metal bands usually have pretty good guitars by default but I can't say the same about the vocals.
This answer is based on my own experience and facts - I've never pressed the stop button because guitars were not good enough but I've pressed that button many times because vox hurt my ears. - Metal_Treasure
Guitar. Long, extended lead guitar solo's are much more important than vocals, because they distinguish Metal from other genres in general. - Kiyomi
Neither. Its about how well the guitar and vocals complement each other. - ryanrimmel
Guitar... - LucretiaV 4 Comments
Tim Ripper Owens. Just listen to Cathedral Spires and Metal Messiah. Tim's vocals during the choruses are pure gold, especially during Cathedral Spires. - Kiyomi
I think Tim is a better vocalist, but I prefer the Bayley era of Iron Maiden to the Ripper Owens era of Judas Priest. - IronSabbathPriest
Easily - Tim "Ripper" Owens.
Agree with IronSabbathPriest - Tim is the better singer and it's really sad this guy didn't find the right band to sing for. He was hated in both Judas Priest and Iced Earth provided that there was nothing wrong with his voice and singing. Tim's voice is 100% metal and he sounds more demonic than Halford.
I absolutely love this song and his vocal:
Judas Priest - Cathedral Spires - Metal_Treasure
Tim is ten times better. - SoldierOfFortune
It really depends on the mood, so no answer - ryanrimmel
Clean vocals. I personally dislike scream vocals and screamo bands. - 05yusuf09
Both, because I love extreme metal and appreciate clean vocals. - Lucretia
Both - KiyomiV 4 Comments
I like Nine Inch Nails more, but ministry is more metallic - ryanrimmel
NIN - EliHbk
Both are excellent musicians who contributed a lot to the greatest band of all time. But overall, I give the edge to Brian Johnson. - Shake_n_Bake13
Metalcore - EliHbk
Deathcore. - Lucretia
I only remember one Deathcore song: Pray For Plagues by BMTH. That song told me to stop. I also listened to other deathcore songs, but I couldn't get into them. I really like Bring Me The Horizon's metalcore songs, like Shadow Moses and It Never Ends.
My vote goes to Metalcore. - Kiyomi
