Top 10 Hansi Kürsch Songs with the Best Screams

Metal_Treasure
Hansi Kürsch isn't a scream-style singer but he screams often and really good.
He uses different types of screams and also uses them in a different way. His screams don't sound the same. Some of his screams are melodic and well planned, some others - spontaneous and raw. Sometimes it's a single scream, sometimes it's a series of screams.

The Top Ten

1 Fiddler On The Green - Demons & Wizards

This scream is one of the best I know: it's about 10-11 seconds long, emotional, powerful and surprisingly melodic. The song is about a girl dying in a car crash and this scream is probably the last scream of the dying body when the soul leaves it. The scream is after the lines "Take my hand, just hold my hand, I'll take you there, your pain will go away". The scream is at 4:05, before the guitar outro. - Metal_Treasure

2 My Last Sunrise - Demons & Wizards

There are several remarkable screams on this song. The vocal performance of the entire song is incredible. - Metal_Treasure

@zxm - yeah, but the screams I have in mind don't appear on the song sample. - Metal_Treasure

3 Bright Eyes - Blind Guardian

For anyone who needs to listen how the screaming of this song,just play the sample,the screaming is awesome! - zxm

Two powerful, raw and pretty maniacal screams at the beginning (within the first minute).
You can hear one of them on the song sample below. - Metal_Treasure

4 Poor Man's Crusade - Demons & Wizards V 1 Comment
5 Tanelorn (Into the Void) - Blind Guardian

A very intense song where Hansi uses screams systematically throughout the song (in the way Ian Gillan used screams on Hard Lovin' Man by Deep Purple).
You can hear 2 of them on the song sample below. - Metal_Treasure

6 Path of Glory - Demons & Wizards V 1 Comment
7 This Will Never End - Blind Guardian

There are several melodic screams, one of them is an intro scream. - Metal_Treasure

8 Sacred Worlds - Blind Guardian

It's at around 7:05 and what I like about this scream is that it's a caveman scream on a sophisticated symphonic metal song. I adore this contrast! - Metal_Treasure

9 Journey Through the Dark - Blind Guardian

A raw and powerful intro scream. - Metal_Treasure

10 Valhalla - Heaven Shall Burn

This is a Blind Guardian cover and Hansi was invited to provide additional vocals (a great idea). Hansi also performed 3 really brutal screams on this version. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Noldor (Dead Winter Reigns) - Blind Guardian

The scream is at 6:10-6:20. A song where you can hear Hansi low voice. I absolutely enjoy his low notes, too. - Metal_Treasure

12 Hallelujah - Blind Guardian

A Deep Purple cover with 3 wild screams that I like. - Metal_Treasure

13 The Last Candle - Blind Guardian

A spontaneous intro scream that has an emotionally liberating effect on me. - Metal_Treasure

14 Crimson King - Demons & Wizards

Shorter than his usual screams but still a good scream at 3:55, at the end of the slow part. - Metal_Treasure

15 Plagues of Babylon - Iced Earth

As a guest musician Hansi performed a scream on this song released in 2014. The scream is at 4:18 but it's kinda buried under other things going on at the same time. - Metal_Treasure

16 Valkyries - Blind Guardian

It's a background scream and you can hear it on the song sample. - Metal_Treasure

17 Grand Parade - Blind Guardian

The scream at 7:05-7:10 sounds awesome (and even needed) in the middle of the most intense section of the song. - Metal_Treasure

18 Altair 4 - Blind Guardian

This song is so unusual, especially the intro sounds. - Metal_Treasure

19 Wheel of Time - Blind Guardian

I added this song reIatively late but it deserves a mention. I've heard the vocal track of this song with isolated vocals (Hansi pure voice is pure bliss) and the scream at 2:45 is actually more brutal than it sounds on the song ("Light denies me NOW"). - Metal_Treasure

20 Immigrant Song - Demons & Wizards

I am adding this song and the screams only because people always add the original screams by Robert Plant to any lists about great screams. I wouldn't say the original screams are very impressive but Hansi screams on this cover aren't worse so I added them, too. - Metal_Treasure
