    Without giving it too much thought, I'll have to say Tomi Joutsen from Amorphis. His singing really suits their music style, and I just happen to like his voice.

    Diablo's Rainer Nygård is a close second, for pretty much the same reasons.

    Outside of metal (though not far, Alternative Rock according to wikipedia), I really like the voice of Poets of the Fall's vocalist.

    The first two do happen to be among my favorite bands, but they're certainly not the only ones, the singing just happens to play a big part in them (at least to my ear).

    In no particular order, and some of these may be considered Rock not metal, or alternative i guess too, but yeah

    Jon Davis of Korn
    Corey Taylor of Slipknot/Stone Sour
    Aaaron Lewis of Staind
    Christopher Hall of Stabbing Westward/The Dreaming (this is my favorite singer of all time..and I've met him!)
    Shawn Morgan of Seether
    Brent Smith of Shinedown (2nd all time favorite singer)
    Sully Erna of Godsmack
    David Draiman of Disturbed
    James Hetfield of Metallica

    Probably more but those are the main ones, when i hear any song of thiers, i sing along, i know every lyric to like every song, i have in my collection every album, ep and digital song they have ever done, i am an addict of said band list

    Seen Judas Priest once and Iron Maiden several times so can sure as hell agree with these two

    Add to the list :
    Lemmy Kilmister
    Ozzy (he's just an awesome guy )

    All I can think of right now.
    An Apple fanboy called me a retard.
    In the real world that makes me a genius.

    John Cooper of Skillet
    and Phil Labonte of All That Remains

    Jesse Leach! He's Killswitch Engage's old singer, now he does The Empire Shall Fall, and Times of Grace. He's such a good vocalist, and by far my favorite.
