Rob Halford (Judas Priest, Two, Fight, Halford) has an unusual singing operatic style, listen to Exciter from Stained Class and Dissident Aggressor - Sin After Sin. He set the benchmark for Bruce Dickinson - Iron Maiden and Geoff Tate - Queensryche.

Huh??

Glen Danzig??

Even though one of my best friends is John Christ, I have to totally disagree with your choice of GD. He's a cross between Jim Morrison and Elvis, but NO WHERE NEAR AS GOOD as either.

Not to mention a REAL p.i.t.a. to work with!

No disrespect to you intended.

Till Lindemann from Rammstein. Very strong, guttural, heavy voice for Industrial Metal.

Bruce Dickinson, hands down. I mean, he was brilliant in his prime but now he's 50 and can still hit notes that 11 year old girls struggle with!

Chuck Billy from testament. That man can sing any metal style and has sung them all.
Hansi Kursh from Blind guardian. Most beautiful voice i think i have ever heard.
Joey Belladona from anthrax. Showed the thrash community thats its still ok to actually "sing" in metal. and he did it better than anyone even to this day.

Too many good ones, but my some of my favorites are:

Tom Araya, Joey Belladonna, Dave Mustaine

Tom Araya just has a really good crunchy angry voice, and it sounds natural to me, which I like.

Belladonna....fun fun fun fun, what else can I say?

Mustaine's voice just appeals to me so much, I don't know why...maybe because it's so unique.

Matt Heafy isn't bad. I actaully really like his voice.

But whoever said Chronos from Venom....you are so right. His voice fits his music so perfectly

Oops...


How could I forget, Geoff Tate?! :-|

Queensryche of the early to mid 80's was very dynamic with his vocals.

The Queensryche(EP), Warning, and Rage for Order albums are great examples of excellent metal voice songs.

Huge fan of Tates' vocals pre-90's(commercial stuff).

I've already casted my vote for James Hetfield on here before, but I just thought of another one.

David Drahmain (Disturbed).
A very unique voice. Its great for Nu-Metal/metal

Don't know if anyone said Chad Grey.
He's horrible live (I had the chance to see Hellyeah), though.

And, lets not forget Max Cavalera, Alexi Laiho, Randy Blythe, Jamey Jasta, and people like them.

and the dude from 3 Inches of Blood and Bobby Blitz

my opinion only (let's see if you like my taste), in no order:

dying fetus = most of it is pretty awesome
glen benton
Barney Greenway, band=napalm death, song=Twist the Knife (Slowly), album=Fear, Emptiness, Despair
Martin LaCroix (Cryptopsy) album= and then you'll beg
six feet under vocalist has so much power.

He's a Hall-of-Famer for sure. Remarkable dynamic range and full of passion. (Not to mention his repertoire of weird noises.) No one would ever have heard of Disturbed without him. He's amazing.

Matt Sanders "M. shadows" Avenged Sevenfold is great too. The screaming in their songs is done by the drummer (james sulivan) don't really like his voice...

It all depends on the genre of metal since there are so many categories.

For me being a metal lover since the early 80's, it's almost like the question that we all dread "Who is the best drummer"....I would list who I think are the best, but it would be a long boring list for you all :)

Well...

Does Candlebox count as a metal band?

If so, I HAVE to mention Kevin Martin.

I just saw them Saturday night in Deleware, and KM was simply amazing.

This guy is so melodic, has fantastic range, and just has such a pure singing voice. Even his screams are falsetto in nature. WOW!!

I've always known that he could sing, seen him/them live 3 times and Saturday night sealed the deal for me that Kevin Martin is for real!
