That's probably because I listen to pretty much an entirely different set of metal subgenres, haha.

Matt Barlow was pretty damn close to making my singers list, but it's as much if not more for his one album with Pyramaze than it is with Iced Earth.

As far as extreme metal goes, there are none better.

No one in metalcore does vocals better than Trevor Strnad.

As far as guitarists go, I'm pretty sure you should just check Maiden 33's list

Singers:

Bruce Dickinson- Iron Maiden. If it's ever been done better I haven't heard it.

Ronnie James Dio- Rainbow/Dio/Black Sabbath/Heaven & Hell. Same reason as Dickinson plus while his voice isn't what it once was he's still going out there and delivering quality live vocal performances at age 67!

Mathew Barlow- Iced Earth. Great power and good range can get his voice to go low or high.

Warrel Dane- Nevermore. Classically trained singer with a wide range of vocal ability. Can hit both low and high notes equally as good.

Geddy Lee- Rush. Underatted as a vocalists especially once he started to learn how to sing in the 80s. At age 57 can still deliever quality vocal performances consistanly live and in the studio.

Geoff Tate- Queensryche. One of the best singers ever period. He can get his voice to sing at any range.

Rob Halford- Judas Priest. Don't feel I need to give a reason here.

James Labrie- Dream Theater. One of the best around his ability to hit certian notes and hold them is something rare that you don't hear to often anymore.

Mike Patton- Faith No More. One of the most unique and innovative vocalists ever. His voice is truley one of a kind and he always has done, and hopefully will continue to do vocal styling's that influence and impress future generations of music lovers.

King Diamond- Mercyful Fate/King Diamond. Just always been a favorite of mine. His falsetto is classic and his lower creepy voice gives me chills. It just fits so well with his music and stories he writes for his albums.

I'll post my guitarists later once i have a chance to figure them out.

1) Bruce is amazing, but I can't begin to fathom how someone thinks he's the BEST singer of all-time. Favorite? Sure, that's all subjective, but I can't imagine arguing him for the best.

2) If you're gonna make a comment about Dio's voice "not being what it once was", you need to say something about Bruce as well. Granted, the Somewhere Back in Time tour was a nice step up for him, but generally in the past 10 years Bruce's voice live (and even on album, especially A Matter of life and Death) has really dropped off.

3) James labrie circa Images and Words was an absolutely amazing vocalist that totally ruled. But I think he's always been one of the worst live vocalists out there. I've never heard someone who could just sound... out of tune. He's had his ups and downs, and on Score/The Octavarium tour he really turned things around for a while. But overall I've never heard a singer so capable of making me cringe live.

Speaking of Origin, both Jeremy Turner and Paul Ryan had better be on your guitar players list, as well as Mike Flores on bass - he is sick as fuck.

Did it ever occur to anyone else that Trevor's family name used to be "Strand", and someone fucked it up on a birth certificate somewhere, and they just decided to run with it? Same thing happened to Cleveland Indian Jhonny Peralta. Just asking. It's been a stream-of-consciousness kind of day.
