Tasty Stuff Not Currently Featured On MS

A concise list of my metalhead man-crushes (now featuring ladies.)

While there is little introduction required for some of these bands and their front(wo)men, there are no words that can accurately describe such jaw-dropping talent anyhow. The albums and youtube links listed are meant to display the full capacity of vocalists' talents, not the bands' most quality or popular tracks - click the links below and behold the prowess.

Many tears will be shed on your behalf if your favourite vocalist isn't here. That being said, any suggestions are more than welcome. A star (★) indicates that the vocalist is exceptionally versatile. If you believe that a certain vocalist deserves a (currently unaccredited) star, then post a few YouTube tracks to support your case.

Avoided criteria:
- Consistency with live performances
- Emotional delivery
- Ability to write aurally appealing vocal lines
- Ability to compliment the music

i.e. The style performances are judged solely on technical ability.

Here are the tracks I've allocated to the vocalists so far in the order of the list below. If you have suggestion which better showcases any vocalist's talents or if any of the link aren't working, please let me know.

Oh, come on...

I find it very hard to believe that there isn't a single power metal vocalist you enjoy.


Actually there's indeed one: Roy Khan. And honestly I don't enjoy his very emotional (over-the-top) singing, but his vocals like on this track are definitely great to me:



I don't listen to Kamelot anymore, but I used to be quite a big fan (about 6 years ago). If I had to pick a favourite album of theirs now, it would be Siége Perilous. Simply because it isn't cheesy power metal such as most other PM bands. Okay, that's not true, it's still cheesy but somehow tolerable enough for me, I don't know why.


He is indeed an excellent vocalist.

And my reasoning behind why I found that hard to believe (regarding you not like any power metal vocalists period) is because, for example, although I dislike the genre of black metal (mainly because of the presence of the vocal style), I have no doubt in my mind that, upon giving the genre a thorough listen, I could actually find one that I like. Which is the case, because I do indeed enjoy the sounds of Agalloch - vocals and all.

I meant no disrespect by my comment, I hope it did not come across that way. I simply found it strange that you were able to write off an entire genre of vocalists when within each genre (especially one as broad as power metal), there is often a wide range of different sounding vocalists, despite the style being similar.
CryVer - 22.01.2014 at 23:00  
I would recommend Tallest Tree (Henrik Båth of Darkwater):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdBqO5iwNzQ
Lit. - 24.01.2014 at 01:20  
Oh, you know who else would look good on here? Sebastian Bach and Blackie Lawless.
Kitharistas87 - 01.02.2014 at 21:04

Hex_Omega - 04.02.2014 at 10:20  
Not exactly metal but you are gonna love this

Ravenous - 02.04.2014 at 21:27  
Oh well, I miss James LaBrie here, his vocals on Dream Theater's Awake were truly outstanding. Even now he sings really well live, saw them two months ago. And maybe even Chuck Schuldiner, I always enjoyed his vocals. Otherwise the list looks good.
Panterica - 14.04.2014 at 17:26  
Very good list, though I don't understand why Mikael Akerfeldt and Christian Alvestam don't get a star. Both are insanely good.
And maybe you should check the present and former singers of Tesseract:
Daniel Tompkins
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uko4wlNZv_U
Oshe O'Hara
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=get0cXOsSXg

And of course there's Between the Buried and Me's Tommy Rogers which is insane

This list is more high-maintenance than being wed to Paris Hilton.
Ilham - 28.05.2014 at 02:27  
Actually, Green Carnation, Dream Theater, and Darkspace could write a song together, and it wouldn't be as long as this list.
Ilham - 28.05.2014 at 03:13  
Okay, you asked for my recs. But hmmm. Really, I'll just throw names at you, I don't really have the knowledge to technically judge and compare so many differents styles and artists. These are not necessarily my favs, but, I would have said Mortuus, Peter Steele, Garm, Jaz Coleman, ICS Vortex, Kvohst, Layne Staley, Chris Cornell... I want to add David Bowie, Dave Gahan, Jamiroquai, Damon Albarn and Morrissey, but that wouldn't be very relevant .
Ilham - 28.05.2014 at 03:16  
I'll add links when the sun comes up and I've caught some zs'.

Wow, you're still working like a dog on this. And I have been a shitty commenter, I still didn't provide those links. I'll get around to it. Sorry.

This list is my life.

Also I thought I'd add that I already have some of the vocalists you suggested - Garm and ICS Vortex. Just thought I'd spare you the trouble

Ok, that two we at least agree upon. Are you a vocalist yourself? Or is this "recreational"?

Yeah, I'm a vocalist/guitarist in a prog metal band - really reflects in the list doesn't it. Let's just put it this way: I get off on vocal prowess

The length of the list goes very well with the interest in prog. You should dismiss my recommendations then, I have absolutely no idea what makes one vocalist technically better than another. I just go with the feeling and overall sound of what comes out of their mouths.

The list would look a lot better if you'd just put the links in the actual list and not in the description of the list. In case of small lists that works well, but not in case of long lists like this one. I'd say add the links like Joe does.

Wait, what? Why would you remove them? I guess your subjectiveness is getting in the way of your self-proclaimed 100% objectiveness. (not sure if that sentence is correct, but you get my point )

Nice list
for Blind Guardian Try these: Time Stands Still (At the Iron Hill) - The Eldar - The Bard's Song (The Hobbit) - A Past and Future Secret
for Vektor if you liked Chuck Schuldiner vocal style, you'll love his style: Forests of Legend - Hunger for Violence - Oblivion
for Novembers Doom try: The Novella Reservoir - Six Sides - The Voice of Failure
Ganondox - 27.06.2014 at 18:12  
For Judas Priest, these two songs together probably best demonstrate his range and versality in technique.



I don't know many songs by Iced Earth, but I think 10,000 Strong shows his range off pretty well. For Vektor, I only know one song by them, but it shows off his range really well with his sick screaming at the end.


As someone who ISN'T a Pantera fan, Phil's singing stands out on Cemetery Gates. Probably should get some actual Pantera fans to check if that's a good representation of him or not.

Sebastian Bach, John Arch (apparently he's popular among the prog fans on metal archives), Roy Khan, and Sharon den Adel (we need more female vocalists here, seriously where is Tarja?) should all be bumped up to the next section, they are all good enough to be among the top metal vocalists.

Aside from Tarja, I don't have any recommendations at the moment that aren't already on the list, but I think Halford, Maynard, and Russel Allen should all get stars. Actually, wait, I do have one recommendation, and he's a star as well, Maximum Bob from the Deli Creeps. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maximum_Bob_(singer)

I find it pretty funny Vibeke Stene isn't on this list. Oh, did I say funny? I meant ridiculous.



My favourite female vocalist without a doubt. She should definitely be on this list.
Ganondox - 11.07.2014 at 17:17  
Oh, two more vocalists who I think are missing, Chino Moreno from Deftones, and Kyo from Dir En Grey, who should definitely get a star.
Mr. Cheeky - 15.07.2014 at 21:01  
Kyo from Dir En Grey has one of the widest vocal range that I've ever heard.

Amazing vocal work in this song.

He even does pretty good BDM style growls.

I was just passing through, and I saw Mortuus from Marduk/Funeral Mist isn't there yet, but that you asked for a song. Here. Behold.

Have you heard Triumphator? I always found that the best of Mortuus' projects.
