What can ya' say about the King that hasn't already been said? He has the highest fucking voice in all of metal and maybe even all of music. I'm totally stoked about the king's return, and recent videos show he's still got it. His ability to hit high notes at that kind of age is only matched by the next entry on this list.

Example: King Diamond - Welcome Home
In all my years of listening to him it still blows my mind what he does with his voice. Not just the high notes but all his voices. I'm not sure if he's had any training or the vocals just come natural but what he does with his voice is phenomenal.
