Who are your favorite non growling, non screaming singers in the metal scene ?

For me it would be :

Roy Khan - Kamelot
Russel Allen - Symphony X
Tim Owens - so many bands I don't even remember
Matthew Barlow - Iced Earth (an obvious nomination)
Mikael Akerfeldt - Opeth, Bloobath (he sometimes has very melodic and nice clean vocals)
Jon Oliva - Savatage (you gotta love the sirens)

I don't know any more singers since I rarely listen to anything but black, so, you state your favorite singers and why they own .

No spamming or I'll kill you..
If this has been done before I don't give a ****, answer the damn question till it gets closed..
I put a dollar in a change machine. Nothing changed.

Does this include, bm-style vocals? If no, then I can't think of a band off the top of my head that is part of the current metal scene, that doesn't use harsh vocals of some sort
O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!

Unless otherwise stated, assume everything I say is in my opinion.

Mikael Akerfeldt (Opeth).
Devin Townsend (Strapping Young Lad).
And although it really doesnt belong in this thread, I've always loved Curt Kobain's edgy singing voice that cant hold a note.

Another lover of Heathen & Forbidden?

CAN IT BE or Do my eyes deceive me?

while we're naming thrash singers don't forget the guy from F&J

Also, Death Angel's singer has a nice bit of edge yet still has the melodic range really like his voice off of UltraViolence.

Damn Magero, you seem rather calm today. I expected a blowout from you with some of these responses.

I'm more misanthropic than pissed off today.
