Alright, first question you might have is "what does he mean by 'Multi-Talented'?" well its simple, just vocalists who can both growl and do clean vocals, Mikael Akerfeldt being a great example of this. I feel having someone who can do both really adds a lot of depth to the music, and variety. My personal favorite is Warlord from Turisas, he showed his range best in the newest album, his growls got far more intense and his clean singing appeared to be more confident as well as being well placed in the music. So who are some of your favs?

Uhmmm...If you'll read the first post, you'll notice I was referring to vocalists who have the capability to sing in both harsh and clean/melodic vocals. Not vocalists who happen to play an instrument.

Russ Anderson of Forbidden has a pretty amazing voice. He combines (and combines well) shrieks with some nice progish clean singing and he's got quite a range. Check out the songs Twisted Into Form or Chalice of Blood.

Jonathan Davis
David Draiman
Christian Alvestam

The first two don't growl in the typical sense of the word, because they are, after all, frontmen of alt/nu metal bands

Garm!!! He is the definition of multi-talent! Varying clean vocals from album to album and disturbing screamed vocals make him the best in my opinion.

Damn, I thought you meant multi-talented (as in playing multiple instruments and such), if that were the case I would have said Daniel Gildenlöw from Pain of Salvation, however for the sake of this discussion, I would vote for either Tomi Joutsen or Mikael Akerfeldt, both have very elegant clean vocals and brutal death growls.

Thanks god! Finally someone agree with me: Jonathan Davis voice is awesome. IMO the song "Justin" from their 1998 album "Follow the Leader" is the one where he better sings.

Mikael Akerfeldt
Björn Strid(I'm surprised nobody has mentioned him)
Devin Townsend definitely on top.
Phil Labonte
I think even Corey Taylor deserves a mention.

That's all I can remember from the top of my head.

Jason Mendonca of Akercocke, no contest.

Akerfeldt is great too, but I've never really cared much for his singing. Not that it isn't good, but he's just a little too melodramatic sometimes.
