    Travis Ryan of Cattle Decapitation. This man makes some utterly insane sounds. I'm sure he is a demon.

    Emos Get OWNED by Cattle D! - YouTube

    Randy Blythe. Sounds like he ate a dragon and it fought back.



    Maynard James Keenan. Just a beautiful singing voice. The man is incredible.



    Jonny Davy



    Hal Sinden. Good friend of mine and poster here. His vocals (particularly his screams) are madness.



    Chad Gray. He's not as good as he used to be, but still awesome.

    Well, personally, I think his voice is a big part of the reason Sonata Arctica stands out amongst the many derivative and nearly indistinguishable "power metal" bands. But I would never suggest anyone should like or agree with the things I like.

    That's pretty much it.

    Devin Townsend and Warrel Dane are my favorites.

    Devin Townsend because he always goes way beyond my expectations, and Warrel Dane because no one portrays emotion like him.

    Mike Patton.
    Todd Smith (although he is kind of limited compared to Patton).
    Devin Townsend (of course).


    Do I really have to say more?!


    Warrel Dane (because I'm essentially in his range and love his twisted sound).
    Roy Khan.
    Tom Englund.


    Such character. Incredible.


    Robert Plant.
    Stevie Wonder.
    Hansi Kursch.

    Apologies for the disgustingly long list.

    Maynard James Keenan (Tool)
    Angela Gassow (Arch Enemy)
    Maria Brink (In This Moment)
    Amy Lee (Evanescence)
    Hayley Williams (Paramore)
    Cristina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil)
    Mikael Akerfieldt (Opeth)
    Christian Machado (Ill Nino)
    Lzzy Hale (Halestorm)
    Dawn Richardson (Fireflight)
    Tarja Turunen (Nightwish)
    Anette Olzon (Nightwish)
    Bjork

    Many of my favorite vocalists are females....idk why....I just "love" the soothing sound of a female voice in metal. (If I had to pick a clear cut winner though, it'd have to go to Maria Brink from In This Moment.)
