Top 10 Hansi Kürsch Vocal PerformancesMetal_Treasure
The Contenders: Page 2
Flawless vox throughout the entire song but 5:30-6:00 is my favorite part - really fast and unstoppable singing. Does Hansi take breath? Sure he does but his breath control and breath support are excellent. Overall, great vox from a metal singer at 50. - Metal_Treasure
Play the song sample to hear both his head and chest voices and the perfect switches between them: head-chest-head-chest-head voice. It's like a duet with himself. - Metal_Treasure
This song is also full with frequent and perfect switches between "head-chest" voice. Excellent singing. - Metal_Treasure
Hands down the best pure vocal epic from Blind Guardian, HANDS. DOWN. Who needs instruments when your voice is a orchestra? "High's the fee." best line from Hansi in music.
Vocals of this ballad are Oh my god!
Find the live version from Tokyo on YouTube and don't bother about the studio versions. When I listen to this live version I forget it's live and only the applauses at the end remind me it was live. I'm pretty sure this is best live vocal performance I've ever heard. This is how a singer should sound live:
"Blind Guardian - The Lord Of The Rings [Live Tokyo Tales]" - Metal_Treasure
The section from 6:20-7:40 says it all - as of 2015, Hansi still sounds amazing at 50! The song is a 10 min long epic from their new 2015 album. - Metal_Treasure
Hansi sings it like there's no tomorrow. Very intense and powerful vocals.
A visitor wrote in another list that "This song is what intense wants to be when it grows up." (list - Best Blind Guardian Songs).
I would add that in this song the vocal is what intense vocal wants to be when it grows up. - Metal_Treasure
Hansi never cease to amaze me: 1:35-2:45 actually combines singing and voice acting, which makes him a fantastic storyteller:
"I'll dare you, come out you coward! Now it's me or you! "
"Slowly in fear the dark lord appears. Welcome to my lands, you shall be damned! "
I'm sure Hansi could have been a brilliant voice actor, too. I'm judging by many other aspects of his singing such as the wide variety of voice intonations in general. - Metal_Treasure
Creepy, ghostly and psychotic vocals. The way he shouts "On Fire! " and the first 2 minutes in general are so crazy that this song became one of my favorites from the 2015 album. - Metal_Treasure
Hansi did a great job on this Judas Priest cover. He made the choruses even more intense and his 2nd chorus blew my mind (2:15) - so much emotional power in the line "Keep the world with all its sin". - Metal_Treasure
Here he shows an unbelievably clean and youthful voice at 49, after all these years of singing metal! - Metal_Treasure
Probably the most beautiful vocal harmonies from Hansi. - Metal_Treasure
All time favorite - can't get enough of the raw and aggressive vox. The live version from 2004 is even better, 15 years after the original (live DVD - Imaginations through the Looking Glass). - Metal_Treasure
