    How could this happen? We have nothing to discuss! There is no doubt that Russell is the best voice in metal. This thread should be called "Who has the second most powerful voice in metal next to Russell, who is better than all the rest combined". Then we'd have a good discussion, at least until I pointed out that it is, without a doubt, Eric Adams from Manowar.

    Russ is far from my fave vocalist. He is good, has power, but there are others that i would consider more powerful as in they do more for me personally.

    Well, the idea of making this thread for me was to be open to the possibility there might be an even better singer than Russ out there. To see if anyone had opinions that might differ to the crowd about who's the best singer in metal. It wasnt meant to be a Russell loving thread really (as much as we do love Russell).

    I gotta say Russel's on the top for me. Then James LaBrie. The dude's definately back in top form. The last album sucked, but seeing him live recently blew my mind compared to the Six Degrees tour.

    you know , to those people who do know the band ,
    I think Toshi from X-japan has quite a powerfull voice as well.
    Just to bad their music didn't get the real breakthrough it
    deserved in the US and Europe.

    The first ones that I think about are:

    -Jorn Lande
    -Russe Allen
    -Magnus Ekwall (He does a SO great job on THE)
    -Daniel Gildelöw (But he's not the same power singer as for example Russel Allen)

    russ (of coarse!)
    james hetfield( yeah!)
    alexi laiho(yaow ya ya ya woah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
    shagroth (evil!!!!!!!!!!!!!rrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa)
    mustaine (hello me its me again....)
    sammy hagar(i know its not really metal but come on guys!)

    btw, while i like dream theatre, labries voice sucks to me. badly. really badly. but i really love liquid tension experiment for that reason! anybody got petrucci's new album yet?

    also i know hes not metal but i like steve vai's voice when he decides to sing, very good voice (but nowhere the power of the others!)
