Reccomendations, Metal Bands With Actual Singers?

I like the metal bands of yore with singers that would actually sing stuff.
You know the usual: Rainbow, Mr Big, Sabbath, Iron Maiden.

I'm sure it must be out their today but it seems like I can't even listen to metal these days without someone screeching over it.

Not a rant or trolling I'm seriously not sure where to look

Everything there in Power, Heavy, Doom and plenty Progressive, Speed/Thrash etc. You will find a very comprehensive list of recommendations that befit your request.

Disturbed have a good, melodic singer (especially their later albums). Some Avenged Sevenfold and Five Finger Death Punch is clean and some of it isn't. As mentioned earlier, basically all power metal (like Haloween or Dragonforce) is clean. Saying that power metal has a considerably more different sound to the bands you listed compared to the three I just mentioned.

I agree with the above lists. Iced Earth is a big one, Actually, i like most of VampireGoldfish's list.

I would also add classic and newer Anthrax, with Joey Belladonna on vocals. Spreading the Disease especially and their newest one, Worship Music.

Power, Symphonic, Gothic, Doom.
If you want more clean vocals get out of the grindcore and death metal genre, it exists there but not nearly as much as you are wanting.

(Yob has some very different vocals, parts are auto tuned it sounds like, I think its pretty cool.)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MP2...559F0558798530B
(This band has the main guitarist/vocalist from the band "Death", Chuck Schuldiner is a legendary guitarist, he's written some really good songs, this band has more traditional style vocals, some really cool stuff.
I recommend going on to youtube and searching up different doom metal bands, a good majority have clean vocals, even some sludge metal bands too.

Thought I should mention Evile, a modern thrash metal band from Britain. It's not quite like Iron Maiden or anything but the vocals are good. Not screamo.

I'm assuming you've heard of Megadeth and Anthrax.

Disturbed? Go back to the MLP threads... Avenged Sevenfold? Isn't there a kids bebop version of one of their songs?
