These lists are not exhaustive.
I would like to talk about Sully Erna from Godsmack right now especially to explain something. These singers also sit on this spectrum; Scooter Ward from Cold, Corey Taylor from Stone Sour, Jake Scherer from New Medicine, Ryan McCombs from Soil, Maria Brink from In This Moment, Matt Walst from My Darkest Days, Shaun Morgan from Seether, Ed Sloan from Crossfade, and Fefe Dobson.
So Sully's voice has been for a long time, my 'optimal music voice'. You will see a theme from most of these bands, say comparing Scooter, Corey, Ryan, Shaun and Sully. That they all hit a very low 'rumble'. Their voices are not deep necessarily, but when they hit their low octaves, their voice 'rolls'. Similar to my fascination with double kicks. There is a rolling rumble sound when one uses a double kick, like these men's voices. I would argue that also Maria Brink's voice rumbles, as does Fefe Dobson when they hit their low notes with a females voice in a different kind of style but the same 'feel'.
To give an example, say this song when Sully says the word 'line'. The voice seems to go both up and down at the same time when he says it. Or in this song 'alive', 'awake', 'say' and 'you'. It is not inherently the ring out of his voice, it is what his voice does when he holds a note for an extended period of time I believe. As not all voices holding a note affect me like Sullys.
Obviously the lyrical content in their songs makes my heart pump too. The songs content must coincide with the voice singing it for me to especially enjoy it, but I do notice a theme in artists when they make certain sounds with their voice regardless of genre. I would say for an alternative genre, that Lil Wayne's voice also has a 'crunch' when he hits the low tones. Seen in this song when he says, 'charisma', 'under', 'understand', etc.
You will find that the music style I also prefer, has large highs and lows. Like the song softens then punches you with a beat. Say in this Rihanna song, after 'twisted' there is a sharper drop, whereas when she says 'carriage' there is not a drop instead it rings out. The phrase nee-eee-eed-ed me, has multiple drops in a singular word even though it appears to be connected. Or in this song, 'I am', 'So I', 'I-Can't-Feel', 'Time won't change'. Or in this song, you can hear in the phrase "so I traveled back, down that road" that the lyrics and music seem to stop and start.
This in English is called a Glottal sound, and is very strongly used in the German language. My argument is that some musicians when singing, use a form of glottal or faux glottal, dropping tones lower whilst singing which I am attracted to. It's the 'drop' itself, rather than whatever note they are singing in to begin with. Though the more sharp the drop, the more I find I pay attention to the song or person speaking, as if it 'hits my interest' level.
