Here we have two very different singers, but each is a master of their craft. Rob Halford has laid down some of the most devastating shrieks with Judas Priest while Bobby Blitz of Overkill ceases to age and sings with utmost conviction.

Rob Halford jaw-dropping vocal range has helped propel Judas Priest to the top of the metal heap. Whether it’s wailing falsettos, gritty shrieks, traditional singing or a snarling mid-range, Halford does it all. The Metal God is also responsible for bringing the studs and leather look to heavy metal, defining the wardrobe of metalheads everywhere.

Overkill are one of thrash’s most unrelenting acts and have never faltered. Their music acts as a brand for the attitude and underdog way of life the band have been living over the last three decades. Bobby Blitz’s voice is unmistakable and his stage presence is menacing.
