Here is a list, in no particular order, of some of my favorite vocalists in metal music:

  • James Hetfield (Metallica): Metallica were one of the first metal bands that I listened to and to this day I associate James Hetfield’s powerful voice with metal music.
  • Rob Halford (Judas Priest): I’m amazed by the high notes he can hit.
  • Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden): His vocal range is incredible.
  • Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A Perfect Circle): His voice has a sadness and raw energy to it that I think is simply wonderful.

  • Daniel Tompkins (TesseracT, ex-Skyharbor): Favorite modern metal singer. His cleans, his screaming — all incredible.
  • Chino Moreno (Deftones):  His voice has an ethereal, dream-like quality that is beautiful.
  • Mikael Åkerfeldt (Opeth): 2nd favorite modern metal singer.

  • George Clarke (Deafheaven): His screams are pure, raw energy. Favorite screaming vocals.
  • Ian Kenny (Karnivool): Another singer with an incredible vocal range.
