    I think I must vote for the lead singer in Darkness.

    Actually, I think he is really good! But the whole band is like a parody of a heavy metal band, kind of like Spinal Tap, thanks to their lead singer! Since every note sounds so theatrical and beyond the limit of good taste, the guy makes a good example of how fine the line is between a good and ridiculous heavy metal singer

    I have mostly listened to serious singers in this genre, so no immediate finalists to nominate, but an honorable mention to James Labrie. I am a big fan of Dream Theater and their musicanship/songwriting abilities, but he has had some moments that one barely survives hearing. There is one good example of the "Through her eyes" single, a long live medley if I recall is on it and James shows us some wrong note there.

    I tatally agree but don't you think it was intended?
    as for La Brie - I love DT but I must admit that to me they would be able to exist with no vocal.

    I pretty much despise most death metal singers that just growl into to the mic without adding any of their own creative twist to what's already been done a thousand times. Most of them sound the same, but someone like Chuck Schuldiner who had a unique identity is so rare.

    The Darkness is the WORST METAL BAND EVER!!!!!! I don't get why people call them a metal band. With that, I agree with everthing substance_affair said (including the comment about Disturbed).

    I feel the same every once in a while, somtimes they seem to heavy for him and somtimes he fits perfect. It must be the fact that everyone int he band is so talented at what they do its almost as if they dont need anymore help lol and come one John Petrucci is a god at guitar

    If we can include death metal I'd go with whoever "sings" in the children of bodom. Its just... terrible. They ruin any song they try to cover and any songs they do themselves are terrible

    Justin Hawkins of the Darkness may not be the best singer that there is, but I am not sure that I would describe him as the worst. The Darkness are not a spoof band but they don't really take themselves too seriously and like to bring a bit of fun to music (something lacking over recent years). They may not be a traditional Heavy Metal group - but they still entertain many people.
