Great keyboard player and more importantly a great composer. Deserves to be more famous than he actually is.
Vivien Lalu evolves with each disc that he finishes.
Many great musicians have worked with him, like Sir. Virgil Donati.
Atte. Carlos Escobar.
He deserves to be more famous, his compositions are brilliant full of picyures and colors. A great artist.V 2 Comments
I don't even listen to this band and I know he needs to be on here. His speed and technique is ridiculous and he is one of the most talented musicians in metal today!
The real genius behind the amazing band Ghost is. Listen to the live versions of "Genesis" by Ghost. It is mind blowing.
Air Ghoul - essential part of the Nameless Ghoul sound machine!
Awesome keyboardist who's way underrated.V 4 Comments
Vitalij Kuprij is one of the best musicians and keyboardists I've ever heard of!
He has amazing talent, technique, speed and composition by combining classical elements in his music. He featured the best guitarists in his albums, and you can easily see that he gives every instrument (even though the albums are his solo albums) it's worth in the song; technical drums, mind-blowing guitar riffs and solo, wicked timing, and a lot of emotion and feelings in the songs.
I am not asking you to put him in the first place, and I do not know ALL keyboardists in the world, but please try to look up for his music and enjoy it! He is truly a genius!
P.S. I'm a guitarist
I just listened to an artension song and he uplifts the music and takes it to a whole other level... his skill and technique is unmatched and he deserves better than fifth place on this list... he is the bane from Ukraine!
Vitalij Kuprij must be considered in the top 10 metal keyboardists of all time for his work with Artension, Ring of Fire, Trans-SIberian Orchestra, and his solo albums. The man is an absolute god of keyboard shredding.
The man is a ledge.
Staropoli is in 26th place?! Who wouldn't love his classical instrument playing from his keyboard in every song of Rhapsody of Fire, and his brilliant keyboard solos in songs like Holy Thunderforce, Raging Starfire, and Sea of Fate?! Check him out and you'll see what I mean!
Jon Lord is the Greatest of all time without him nobody else on this list will have been a Heavy Metal Keyboard players
The first metal keyboardist. at his time everybody though only guitar can create metal sound, but he changed it. he said something like that " if Ritchie Blackmore is going to play his guitar heavily, I, I need to also play my organ heavy. I need to put tough on my hammond organ" you can see he also created lots of solos with his organ while Ritchie played solos with his guitar. - zxm
Show some respect, people. Keyboardists on this list and even this list exist thanks to him. - Metal_Treasure
The god of Heavy Metal Organ. None shall replace him. R.I.P Jon.V 3 Comments
