MetalSucks Readers Select Converge’s Jacob Bannon as The Best Frontman in Modern Metal
Following the conclusion of our list of The Top 25 Modern Metal Frontmen last week, we asked you, our beloved readers, to weigh in, and weigh-in you have: Converge’s Jacob Bannon is the winner, with 284 votes, including those of people who don’t understand how to follow instructions and therefore ended up making three separate ballots for Bannon (two as “Jacob” and one as “Jake”). Although Bannon’s name was definitely bandied about during MetalSucks’ internal discussions and voting, he ultimately didn’t make the cut — so we’re only too happy to see MS readers show him some love.
Other popular picks included Devin Townsend (#4 on our list) with 238 votes, Between the Buried and Me’s Tommy Rogers with 228 votes, and Opeth’s Mikael Åkerfeldt (#8 on our list) with 225 votes. Six people also voted for the person who would have been #26 on our list, had the list extended that far… although we’re not telling you any more than that!
