...and now I came to hear he has left the band and none knows his future plans, damnit.
Delfin Quishpe from Torres Gemelas. Youtube FTW!
Nathan J. Biggs. (Sonic Syndicate)
Phillip Labonte. (All That Remains)
While not necissarily my favorite, Rob Halford is probably the best and most talented, or the singer from Queensryche (dont know his name). That said, my personal favorite is probably Dave Mustaine (I can totally understand people who hate his voice, in honesty, I dont know why I like it so much, but I think over a lot of time it has really grown on me and now I really like it).
Edit: And honestly, Roy Khan is also very good but I dont particularly like that type of music, but he is fucking amazing live. One of those people better live than on album, which is serious skillz!
Craig Owens [Chiodos, D.R.U.G.S]
Jonny Craig [Emarosa]
Alissa White-Gluz [The Agonist] *in pic below*
Roy Khan [Kamelot]
Simone Simons [Epica]
Kai Hansen [Gamma Ray, Helloween]
Robb Flynn[Machine Head]
Delu čast in oblast!
Praise the work and give it power!
As there are many metal vocalists that are exceptional, I can only think of one that truly defines Metal, and that was the late great Ronnie James Dio.
To me, there is no one single vocalist that defines a genre more then RJD.
Matthew Barlow (Iced Earth, Pyramaze 1 album) would be my favourite
Mikael Stanne from Dark Tranquillity for sure. His voice just keeps getting better with every album, it's nuts. Amazing growls and cleans.
Phil Bozeman from Whitechapel has some really solid gutturals, and they're surprisingly clean (as in you can easily make out what he's singing).
Simone Simmons of Epica is probably my favorite metal singer at the moment.
Sharon den Adel is also really good... as is Liv Kristine (of Leaves' Eyes - http://youtu.be/E-9bb3m9RGY).
As for male singers...
I enjoy James LaBrie of Dream Theater -- his singing just.. fits in very well, I feel.
I also really like the singers of Ensiferum and Eluveitie (Peter Lindroos and Merlin Sutter).
Rob Halford - Judas Priest
Bruce Dickinson - Iron Maiden
Jonathan Davis - KoЯn
Ronnie James Dio -... Dio
David Draiman - Disturbed
Corey Taylor - Slipknot/Stone Sour
Jack Black - Tenacious D
Ozzy Osbourne -... Ozzy/Black Sabbath
Howard Jones - Killswitch Engage
Rob Zombie -... Zombie
Serj Tankian - System of a Down
Johan Hegg - Amon Amarth
Music in general my most Favorite singers are Freddie Mercury and Robert Plant.

Sorry but no "metal vocalist" thread is complete without him
Christian Älvestam - ex-Scar Symmetry, Miseration, Solution .45
Björn Strid - Soilwork, Disarmonia Mundi
I proclaim the above two vocalists the LEGENDS of Death/Melodic/Gothenburg metal, their ability to switch between death growls and clean vocals = mindblowing.
Bruce Dickinson and James Hetfield
