Best Metal Voice?

Oddly enough, I don't think of Maynard's voice as "metal" at all.
Yeah, but Maynard's voice is awesome, but being a tenor he still has a good range but isn't really a suited metal voice, so gentle and controlled but really driven if he pushes his singing (yes, actually sings)...he provides a good atmosphere to the band (someone used a sentence like that before) wouldn't be Tool without him.

Four best metal voices in my opinion:

1.Serj Tankian from SOAD
2.Jens Kidman from Meshuggah
3.Tobi from We Butter the Bread with Butter (OMG brutal pig squeels...BBRREEKACHUU!)
4.Brian Fair from Shadows Fall

My personal favourites not all growlers though!

Rob Halford- The God

Mikael Akerfeldt- Opeth

Randy Blyth- Lamb of God

I agree about Scar Symmetry's old singer that guy was golden. Although the 2 new ones impress me a lot too.

Ivan Moody - Five Finger Death Punch

He yells pretty mean, and his singing voice is damn good.
