Amazing performers, distinctive voices, memorable style and working with a ‘metal’ band (not hard rock, grunge, punk or hardcore); these are the criteria for becoming one of the ten most powerful frontmen in heavy metal and hard rock. These performers not only lead their band on stage, they command a presence that is undeniable to fans who have been lucky enough to catch them live. Some are no longer here, some are a little long in the tooth, but their contribution to their genre will always be felt.
