Replace Periphery's Vocalist?

So, a great many people hate Periphery's vocals, but love the music. Or at least like it. So... if you had the chance, which of these vocalists would you rather have in the band?
1Strapping Young Lad

Devin Townsend. An utter vocal monster, he could provide amazing clean vocals, and a variety of harsh. It doesn't matter what you need, he could fill in most anything.
2The Dillinger Escape Plan
Miss Machine

Greg Puciato delivers intensity in spades, but is also quite capable of a strong melody, or just a good sneering tone. On occasion, he even whips out a pretty great high note.
3Faith No More
Angel Dust

Mike Patton. He's an insane vocalist. He knows melody, but he also knows utter noise and nonsense, and just when to use them. His cleans are smooth and clever, his harsh vocals are wild.
4Circa Survive
Blue Sky Noise

Okay, this is an odd choice; but wouldn't it be fascinating to hear Anthony Green in this kind of music? I think it would.
Blackwater Park

Mikael Akerfeldt is quite the vocalist. One minute, a smooth crooner, the next, incredible roars. What he lacks in range he makes up for in style.
Death of a Dead Day

Mikee Goodman and Justin Hill. Their tag team of melodic one minute, spastic the next vocal style would provide Periphery dizzying variety, I think.
7Mutiny Within
Mutiny Within

Chris Clancy mixes power metal melodies and metalcore roars without batting an eye. Some have even said they prefer Mutiny Within to Periphery- interesting comparison- so, what if he were in Periphery instead?

He doesn't really fit in on this list, but much like Green, wouldn't it be interesting to hear him doing his Maynard thing all over this kind of music? He could make it work.
This Godless Endeavor

Okay, I've kinda run out of vocalists that switch between melodic and extreme that I want to list. But, come on, Warrel Dane could manage to sing over ANY riff thrown at him, and make it sound good. He's proved it extensively.
10Lamb of God

Purely harsh vocals, Randy Blythe is, in my opinion, an incredible vocalist He's powerful, distinct, and his words can be understood. He has a lot going for him.
And that concludes MY list of options. Feel free to provide your own candidate, I couldn't possibly list or think of everyone.
