61 Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear) Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear) Ralf Scheepers is the vocalist for German heavy metal band Primal Fear. He has a relatively high-pitched tenor-esque singing voice and sometimes uses a shriek reminiscent of Judas Priest's Rob Halford, although it is his baritone lows which give him a near four-octave range in the modal register.

An impressive 4 octave vocal range. His tone and singing style remind of Rob Halford a lot. Check out "The man (That I don't know)"; "All For One" by Primal Fear. - Metal_Treasure
