I find he's the very best in the cover of Holy Diver.

Their cover of Holy Diver is definitely one of the best cover songs I've ever heard.

Can't believe I forgot:

James Hetfield (Metallica)
Tom Araya (Slayer) 

(Don't think I need to bother posting videos for those two, I think everyone knows them.)

A couple more favorites that I left out:

Rou Reynolds (Enter Shikari):


Chuck Billy (Testament):


Love his growls in this song.

I like vocalists with great voice and good performance on the stage. 


Midnight- Crimson Glory
Bruce Dickinson - Iron Maiden
Rob Halford - Judas Priest
Eric Adam - Manowar
Bobby Ellworth - Overkill
Michael Kiske - Helloween
Mikael Akerfeldt - Opeth


They are all very famous..so I'm not going to attach samples.

Try this one on for size. Devilskin is the hottest hard rock band in New Zealand at the moment.

Sandra Nasic (Guano Apes)


It's a shame they went commercial alternative rock/pop rock later.

Seeing as I've been in the mood for Godsmack, I forgot how much I love Sully Erna:

Now he is definitely in my top 5 vocalists.

I used to listen to Godsmack quite a bit. I should really revisit the albums I have theirs in full sometime. Just stuck I Stand Alone on for old times sake and despite changing tastes over the years I still like this a lot. Sully is great. He always kinda reminded my Dad and I of James Hetfield.

Without bothering to check the previous answers, my favorites as they come to mind while I await for a phone call at work...

Robert Lowe - Solitude Aeturnus, Candlemass etc. One of the best voices in the history of metal. Golden. Probably my #1 most of the times.
The King. Up to 1994 but with emphasis in the 82-90 years. Unmatched.
James Hetfield - that guy, yeah.
Dave Mustaine - fuck the naysayers about his vocals. His performance and his style, his sarcasm and all are elements that make up one of the best metal performers ever. In the studio. Up to the System has Failed. But who cares? 
Tom Araya - first five Slayer.
Mike Muir - Suicidal Tendencies. If you get Cyco Miko, you understand.
Hansi Kursch - Blind Guardian (especially during the Somewhere Far Beyond to Nightfall In Middle - Earth era)
kai Hansen (esp. on Walls of Jericho! Yeah, I know...)
Jon Oliva - Savatage, see Hall of the Mountain King.
Midnight - Crimson Glory, Lost Reflection and the whole of Transcedence.
Russ Anderson - Forbidden - god.
Charles Rytkonen - Morgana Lefay, one of a kind, huge fan of his vocals.
Eric AK - Flotsam and Jetsam - god II
Keith Deen - Holy Terror - god III
Buddy Lackey (I don't know anyone called Devon Graves!!) - first two Psychotic Waltz albums are some of the sickest vocals ever. LITTLE PEOPLE!
Warrel Dane. In his good years before he shot his voice.
Michael Olivieri - Leatherwolf, such a voice.
Tom Mallicoat - Lethal (Programmed era)
John Stewart - Slauter Xstroyes. Another god. 
Harry the Tyrant Conklin: Jag Panzer, Titan Force, Satan's Host. Probably the most gifted throat in metal.
Sebastian Bach - Skid Row, esp. his performance on Slave to the Grind. LIVIN' ON A CHAINGANG intro, when Seb SCREAMS I am happy.
Mario Prunster from Mayfair - esp. on the EP and debut. And demos. 
He and Mayfair are so obscure they gets a youtube reference. Buddy Lackey fans check.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vIi11T5W-8
Devin Townsend - esp. on City. Holy shit.

Of course no person in his right mind does not worship the vocals of Ronnie Dio and Rob Halford. I am a sane person as well.

Extreme vocals:
Mille of Kreator, epecially on Pleasure to Kill
Chuck from Death, in all his versions except for his style on the sound of perseverance.
Karl Willets of Bolt Thrower
John "Death Breath" Tardy, esp. on the first two Obituary albums. 
Sargent Salsten of Deathhammer. Crazy motherfucker.
Dave Vincent on the first four Morbid Angel albums.
Jeff Walker - Carcass
Pat Lind - Morbid Saint (SPECTRUM OF DEATH)
David DiSanto - Vektor. Thank god for Vektor and thank god for DiSanto.

Outside pure metal I'll say Freddie Mercury (the god of vocals) and Mike Patton
