Most of the time I would probably go with Dio. But I've been in a Maiden mood recently so I went with Bruce. Can't go wrong with whoever you choose though.

I know Dickinson has never had any sort of professional training with his voice which is pretty amazing. His voice is one hundred percent natural and real.

For some reason I think Dio and Halford had taken some kind of vocal lessons before but I could be wrong.

Arguably? Nope.

These are the three greatest metal vocalists.

Arguably is good because I'd put Klaus Meine ahead of, at least, Bruce Dickinson here

Anyways, I voted Rob Halford

Dio and Dickinson are obviously phenomenal and hugely inspirational, but Dickinson doesn't have Halfords titanium, helium injected pipes, and Dio doesn't have Halford's dizzying arsenal of voices. Altogether, Halford inspires me the most, so I vote for my favorite heavy metal singer here.

yes. Dickinson can take some serious adjusting to the uninitiated, Klaus is just riveting.

By the same token, Halford never went from the intro to Children of the Sea to I.

I would say fair, but I'm not catching your reference quite clearly. Is I another Dio song? Is there a video you could link to?

Eh, he's a very good melodic vocalists. But in terms of overall singing ability he's nowhere in the conversation.

I mean, I'd argue I've yet to hear a vocal scarier than that in their title track, but I suppose technically speaking he's not virtuosic, just very good and knows exactly how to use his voice.

His voice had an eerie quality to it during the early Sabbath albums but I never found it scary. Plenty of more frightening vocalists out there.

Dio -> Halford -> Dickinson

or maybe

Halford -> Dio -> Dickinson

I can't decide.

I love all three though.

Dio, though he's fallen off quite a bit in recent years.
