Currently a singer for Primal Fear, ex-singer for Gamma Ray. In case you don't know - this guy was a frontrunner as Halford's replacement in Judas Priest in the mid 90s. Ralf lost out to Tim Ripper Owens because... he didn't answer several questions sent to him over internet. I don't know the reason - if he didn't see this email, or something else. So there wasn't a real duel between them as singers. I love them both and can't say who is better but I think Ralf's voice and singing style sound closer to Rob's.
His voice resembles Dio so much - check out his cover of 'Don't talk to strangers'. You are gonna be pleasantly surprised. - Metal_Treasure
His voice on kill em all - gemcloben
His distinctive roar instantly speaks 'metal' to me. Very addictive voice. - Metal_Treasure
Think about it. bruce Dickinson was hired to replace this guy. - gemcloben
He can do both clean vocals and growls, and very often he switches between them within one song ('Everything Invaded'). Sometimes he sings on the borderline and this technique sounds really cool and interesting (example - 'Sacrificial').
His clean voice is hypnotizing and unusually low for metal, where higher voices are preferred ('Opium', 'White Omega', 'Mr. Crowly' - Ozzy cover). - Metal_Treasure
A hypnotizing and rare type of voice - baritenor (baritone's voice, tenor's range). Sounds awesome. A very dark combination of Jim Morrison, Ozzy and Elvis.
Songs: How The Gods Kill, Am I Demon, Mother. - Metal_Treasure
The best South-American singer (Brazil). He reminds me so much of Michael Kiske - Kiske was his idol for sure.
Angra - Metal Icarus
Shaman - Distant Thunder (it's live version is great, too).
Pain of Salvation - Sisters, Linoleum, Hallelujah. - Metal_Treasure
Lost Horizon - Highlander.
A vocal performance that can compete with Painkiller and Victim of Changes. - Metal_Treasure
