In metal there is many great and talented vocalist. Guys like Rob Halford, Bruce Dickinson, Eric Adams, and Ronnie James Dio. These guys are well known for their incredible voices and vocal range. Listening to more modern bands I haven't really found anyone who stands out to me as being on this level of singing. Is their any great singers like these out there nowadays?

Personally I like Rody Walker from Protest The Hero and James P. Luna from White Wizzard, but they're not even close to the other guys I mentioned.

Here are some modern vocalists who are very talented and great: xD

Jorn Lande (Masterplan, Solo)
Russ Anderson (Forbidden) Note: Forbidden arent really a modern band, but havent been around for a long time. Their latest comeback album proves beyond doubt that Russ is in the top tier of metal vocalists! xD
Warrel Dane (Nevermore)
Russell Allen (Symphony X, Allen/Lande)
Jo Amore (Nightmare)
Tobias Sammet (Edguy, Avantasia)
Ralf Scheepers (Gamma Ray, Primal Fear)
Andy B. Frank (Brainstorm, Symphorce)
Tim Owens (Judas Priest, Iced Earth, Beyond Fear, Solo, Charred Walls Of The Damned)
Hansi Kursch (Blind Guardian, Demons & Wizards)
Edu Falaschi (Angra, Almah)
Yama B (Galneryus)
Timo Kotipelto (Stratovarius)

That doesnt make any sense either, seeing as Protest The Hero are bigger and more widely known than most of the bands I listed... lol
I probably shouldnt have included Hansi or Russ, and maybe even Ralf. But all the others are legitimate. Jorn in particular was more or less unknown until he joined Masterplan. A band which formed a couple of years after Protest The Hero. And most of the other bands I listed only formed about 3 or 4 years before PTH, so they arent old at all. lol

Well..... basically what I meant was people in bands that have formed in the 2000s I guess. Something to that effect.

Also your previous post reminds me that I have to check out Masterplan. I heard some of their stuff on youtube a while back and I remember enjoying it, but I never got around to checking out any of their albums.

Roberto Liapakis from Mystic Prophecy has one really cool and powerful voice. Also fits the music really well, imo. Aya of UnSun also has a really catchy clean female voice. This is all I can think of, atm.

Valeriy Kipelov from heavy-metal band "Kipelov" is one of my favorite clean voices, very melodious and strong.

It's fun to speculate on this sort of thing. Only time will tell, though. A singer might show great promise today and either quit metal, or develop bad technique, or just fail to grow and improve. Meanwhile an average singer with lots of heart might grow into an epic name over time.

I love Atle Pettersen from Aspera (Norwegian prog band). Their debut album Ripples was most impressive this year. His voice is classic in style and texture, even reminding me of some other prog singers, but at the same time he is very diverse in his technique and I can see him really setting himself apart in future albums. Enjoyable now, amazing later? We'll see.

Jonas Heidgert from Dragonland has looks to be shaping into a vocal god with amazing mystical voice from the stars. He's what Timo Kotipelto wishes he was (IMO)

I promise you won't regret it! If I may, I recommend you listen to Bethovens Nightmare or Too late for Sorrow to hear his great voice in full action.

If were gonna go with just 2000s bands...

Wyatt Anderson of White Wizzard and Iuri Sanson of Hibria, some very promising power metal vocalists. Too bad Wyatt left White Wizzard though.

And go ahead and flame me for bringing up Alter Bridge, but I think Myles Kennedy is a pretty good singer too. And he's not as big of a douche as Axel Rose but is probably just as talented as him, so he was a pretty good choice for Slash's singer IMO.

Ida Haukland of Triosphere.

Just straight up melodic metal vocals, no extreme growls, no operatic or gothic touches, and done with class and depth.

White Wizzard's got nothing on Cauldron. Even though their vocal style is quite special and not everyone's cup of tea.

I like it a lot though.
