Top 10 Savatage Songs With Best Vocals

Metal_Treasure

The Top Ten

1 Morphine 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

2 Hounds Hounds

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

3 Chance Chance

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

4 Hall of the Mountain King Hall 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

5 Sirens

Quite long sustain, cool screams. - Metal_Treasure

6 Of Rage and War Of Rage and War
7 When the Crowds Are Gone When the Crowds Are Gone

One of the greatest songs ever in my opinion. This band has always deserved more attention.

How can this song not be in the top 10? This is one of the greatest songs ever.

Zack Stevens showcases his remarkable sustain - long, powerful, emotional and beautiful (14 seconds). - Metal_Treasure
