The Top Ten
I also made a list to make things clearer - Top 10 Edguy Songs that Could Be on Iron Maiden Albums - Metal_Treasure
Tobias Sammet sounds like Bruce Dickinson with a hint of Michael Kiske.
Edguy - Nailed To The Wheel, Sacrifice. - Metal_Treasure
Scheepers - Before The Dawn (solo album, 2011)
Primal Fear - Strike, Metal Gods (Judas Priest cover). - Metal_Treasure
Best vocalist of all time...
Jorn - Stormbringer, Burn (Deep Purple covers)
Jorn - Fool for your loving (Whitesnake cover) - Metal_Treasure
I have no problem with that actually
He does sound like barlow, but only becuase Schaffer makes him imitate him
I have no problem either. I actually think this similarity is good for Iced Earth. Stu sings the song Raven Wing almost with Matt's voice. - Metal_Treasure
I love Metallicara! Disposable HeroesssAh! Yeah! - MattAffterburner
Poulsen sounds like Cher, when she sings in the lower register. A friend pointed this out to me and now I can't listen to them, which sucks. Because Volbeat is actually a decent band. But I just can't come to terms with "Cher" singing metal.
@visitor - you didn't get the idea of this list correctly. We don't compare Metallica and Volbeat, neither how good singers are. We are talking about how similar they sound. Michael Poulsen definitely sounds similar to Hetfield and there are many materials on the internet about this similarity. - Metal_Treasure
Volbeat sounds like a hound dog and a donkey that finishes every bellow by hacking up a hairball he picked up where creed left off and actually sounds worse Metallica was one of the original frontrunners for showing the world what rock really is and they put the art in artist the fact someone would remotely think to compare them does a huge discredit to rock bands and rock fans world wide and accross the decades...shame on you
How dare you! Volbeat is possibly the most interesting and best band of our times! - MattAffterburnerV 4 Comments
Sounds like a heavier and darker version of Jim Morrison.
Danzig - Mother, Am I Demon, How The Gods Kill. - Metal_Treasure
He's a vocal chameleon and can sound like several singers but most notably:
1) Sounds like Dio (proof: Blind Guardian - Don't Talk To Strangers).
Hansi's voice is the closest possible to Dio's voice: almost same range and as a bonus - placed in absolutely same register.
Even Hansi's speaking voice sounds like Dio's.
2) Sounds like Robert Plant (proof: Demons & Wizards - Immigrant Song). - Metal_Treasure
Sings like Bruce but more cleaning, and Scream like 70s Rob Halford.
Basically the reason I won’t like Helloween as much as I probably should. - PhoenixAura81
Just listened to the Keeper of the Seven Keys (Helloween). Yes, they sound quite similar. - Metal_Treasure
But at the same time there's a big difference - Kiske has no aggression in the voice. Tobias Sammet has aggression and therefore Sammet is closer to Dickinson than Kiske. - Metal_Treasure
Try: Shaaman - Distant Thunder. - Metal_Treasure
Thanks for this addition, zxm. I agree - I even wrote it several times, including on the list Top 10 Helker Songs.
I first heard Diego vocals in the band Helker. - Metal_Treasure
When he sings in powerful voice, his voice kinds sounds same. Even almost same as Hansi Kürsch. - zxm
Mark Tornillo is their newest singer who joined the band in 2009 and in 2010 Accept released probably the best comeback metal album I know.
Accept - Shades Of Death, Pandemic, Teutonic Terror. - Metal_Treasure
Jorn - Perfect Strangers (Deep Purple cover) - Metal_Treasure
Tim 'Ripper' Owens - Flight Of Icarus (Iron Maiden cover).
Paul Di'Anno would sing this song just like Tim 'Ripper' did. - Metal_Treasure
Somebody actually sounds like Layne? - Userguy44
One reason I like John Bush better than Joey is that he sounds like Layne Staley from Alice in Chains just listen to Sound of White Noise that album sounds pretty simular to something Alice in Chains would do - christangrant
Tobias Sammet sounds like a blend of Bruce Dickinson and Michael Kiske - Metal_Treasure
I don't think so - Metal_Treasure
Yes, even some of the earliest Stratovarius songs are Helloween rip-offs.
They aren't metal singers and shouldn't be on this list. - Metal_Treasure
Is this a joke? Or a troll item? Or added by somebody who needs hearing aid? - Metal_Treasure
