Arguably three greatest vocalists in heavy metal. Who do you prefer the most?
Have to give a nod to Dio.

In fact this is my order:
1.Dio
2.Halford
3.Dickinson

Personlly my favorites in this order:
1. Dickinson
2. Halford
3. Dio

All these singers are the shit. I kinda favor them in this order because of how much I like their bands. Maiden>Sabbath>Priest>Dio

Technically Rob is the best; he has more control, range and styles.

Arguably? Nope.

These are the three greatest metal vocalists.

They're all different. I can't really pit them against each other.

Dickinson's my favorite simply because Iron Maiden is one of my favorite bands and I listen to songs from almost all of their albums regularly. Book of Souls was awesome.

Dio > Dickinson > Halford

Rising, Heaven and Hell, Mob Rules, Holy Diver and The Last in Line.  It’s just too much to overcome.

As an aside, I like Dickinson’s body of work over Halford’s, but no two albums more than SFV and DotF.
