Your Favorite Metal Vocalists

I want to go ahead and get this thread started before I post my own list, so go for it. From NWOBHM to brutal death metal, tell me which vocalists are your favorites. Feel free to throw in non-metal vocalists as well.

I kind of figured, but it'll be nice to bring the topic to light again.

Russell Allen (Symphony X)
Jorn Lande (Masterplan, Ark, Jorn)
Zak Stevens (ex-Savatage, Circle II Circle)
Tom S. Englund (Evergrey)
Steve Lee (Gotthard) (RIP)
Mike Dimeo (ex-Riot, ex-Masterplan, Creation's End)
Jon Oliva (Savatage, Jon Oliva's Pain)
Ray Alder (Fates Warning, Redemption)
Johnny Lindqvist (Nocturnal Rites)
Oliver Hartmann (ex-At Vance, Hartmann)
Urban Breed (ex-Tad Morose, ex-Bloodbound, Pyramaze)
Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden)
Ronnie James Dio (Dio, Black Sabbath) (RIP)
Hansi Kursch (Blind Guardian)
Tommy Karevik (Seventh Wonder)
Tony Martin (ex-Black Sabbath)
Andi Kravljaca (Silent Call, ex-Seventh Wonder)
Roberto Tiranti (Labyrinth)
Glenn Hughes (ex-Deep Purple, Black Country Communion)
Dug Pinnick (King's X)

Notable mentions:
-Steve Walsh (Kansas) - circa 1974-1979 I'd say he was easily one of my favorite singers ever, but given that he peaked for such a small period of time, it's hard to favor him THAT strongly overall.
-Tobias Sammet (Edguy, Avantasia) - I easily consider Tobi to be one of the greatest metal frontmen in this or any era of the genre, and I absolutely idolize his songwriting skills. However at the end of the day I only LOVE his voice during a small period of the band's career - roughly 2000-2005.
