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
Ozzy Osbourne. I don't think anyone would actually vote for manson - ryanrimmel
Ozzy - Du
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 - ryanrimmelV 2 Comments
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

Before you answer - some examples:
Great Tenors - Rob Halford, Bruce Dickinson, Michael Kiske, Tobias Sammet, Timo Kotipelto, King Diamond, Andre Matos, Jarkko Ahola
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
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
Children of Bodom. They are one of the single coolest bands I've ever heard in my life - ryanrimmelV 2 Comments
I know I'll get hate for this, but I choose Manson. I love Slayer but Manson has more variety than them.V 3 Comments
Oh come on, this is a joke? I love them - 05yusuf09
Korn. Not a big fan of Limp Bizkit - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxXV 1 Comment
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
Neither. Its about how well the guitar and vocals complement each other. - ryanrimmel
Guitar, I like the sound much more - Songsta41
Both, because both are necessary - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX
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
It really depends on the mood, so no answer - ryanrimmel
Clean vocals. I personally dislike scream vocals and screamo bands. - 05yusuf09V 2 Comments
I like Nine Inch Nails more, but ministry is more metallic - ryanrimmel
