Top 10 Savatage Songs With Best Vocals

Metal_Treasure

The Top TenXW

1Morphine Child

Jon Oliva is one of the most underrated metal singers - I just needed to start with that.
His voice is very powerful and full of emotion. Jon Oliva has excellent clean vocals but also gritty vocals, remarkable screams and sometimes - even quasi operatic vocals. Overall, Jon Oliva sounds pretty evil and aggressive, provided that his subgenres aren't extreme (prog, power, speed, symphonic, heavy metal).
By the way not only Jon Oliva but also Savatage in general is criminally underrated. - Metal_Treasure

2Hounds

One of the greatest vocal deliveries of any artist. Truly bone chilling.

Jon Oliva puts here clean and gritty vox, screams, passion - there's everything. - Metal_Treasure

3Chance

Zachary 'Zack' Stevens sings this epic song and he did a great job, especially the canon vox.
Because Jon Oliva sings most of the Savatage songs, he's also the default singer on this list, except where noted. - Metal_Treasure

4Hall of the Mountain King

@visitor RE "Incredible riiffs and solos must be in the top 3" - yeah, but this list is about vocal performances and not riffs and solos. - Metal_Treasure
