Thumbs up: +1
This is a hard list, I've tried getting my favorite singers inn this list, but I'll do in alphabetical so that it does not become unfair in my head. I'll also represent an album which I think the vocalist sings especially good (maybe it is not the best, but whatever. This may be a subject to change, but I believe this is my favorites. I've narrowed it down to 12, but I tell you all that it was hard. Enjoy or something!

Nice list!
I definitely agree with at least half of it, and it's cool that you mixed it up with both male and female singers. Would be interesting to see what it'd look like if you'd place them according to ranked favorites instead of alphabet, but it's totally understandable why you did that, since this is indeed very hard.
Tastes will always differ, and there are a few albums that I personally would replace with others, but I'd certainly agree that these are all (at least the ones I'm familiar with) excellent choices.
You did a bad-ass pick with "Somewhere Far Beyond" to represent Kürsch, as I think that album is probably the first one where his voice reaches world-class caliber! The jump in quality that his vocals made from previous albums to that one was really noticeable (in my opinion).
Seeing Dio on this list makes me want to include him on my own. I guess no list of Metal singers really is complete without him... There was (and still is) just an unmatched aura of magic and mystery to his voice.
Oh, and I guess there must be something wrong with my eyes because I just can't seem to find Russell Allen on this list...

Yes, mixing the Females and males actually made this list a lot harder, and I do not know if all the albums is right, but I really love them in these albums, I also did not include the "metal operas" we love so much because I really wanted to focus on their bands/solo carrer so, yeah.
Dio had to be here, just could not find myself exlude him, and Hansi, yeah he always does a hell of a job, but SFB is where he really gets me
Oh Allen, yeah, as much as I love his voice I just have not gotten into his band yet and I also thought about Eriksen but yeah, there were to many that did not make the list
I have to many that I wanted to put here, and narrowing it down to 12 was to say it mildly, FUCKING HARD!

You nailed it.
There's so many fantastic singers out there, we're bound to exclude more than we include. And it's a funny thing, some days our favorites are quite different. There might be a singer we enjoy listening to on a very regular basis, but we'd still not consider him/her a top-10 canditate or something (because there might be other singers we enjoy a lot more despite not listening to them as much). So keeping stuff like that in mind as well...

Agreed! and thank you I do consider splitting up the female and male list, but we'll see
