Simple question.. right? With "metal" making its way into the mainstream lets see what you think. Who's got the best range, growls, and pipes in your opinion? Please explain.

Randy Blythe of Lamb of God

Devin Townsend of Strapping Young Lad

Joe Duplantier of Gojira

and my personal favorite, Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth

no has said james hetfield of metallica...

he has the best metal growl in my opinion. you can understand what he is saying.
and his evil laughter in "the thing that should not be" still creeps me out...

I love every metal vocalist in differant ways.

My personal opinion, though, would be tough. I mean, I love Jaymz, the dude from Venom... I just couln't choose.

Not even that. It's just so terrible. Divine Heresy's vocalist (the original one) is better than that!
I liked Tommy Vexx. Maybe if you give some time, you'll grow into it. I used to laugh at Nergal (ooo I forgot Him!!) from Behemoth, but now I'm a huge Behemoth fan. It takes time to grow into a vocal style like that, but once you do, you'll enjoy it.

The music, either way, growling or not, is normally pretty awesome anyway!

True dat. I used to hate death metal because of the screaming but now I love it
