Best Power Metal Singers
At the very least he should be sitting in the number 3 spot... I'm sorry but I can't seem to take this list seriously, when I see someone like ZP clearly winning I start to wonder who these voters listen to. They mustn't have heard very much variance as there's by far better singers then StudioForce's ZP Theart
Happy to see him at #1, he deserves that. Not only for his stellar vocal skills but also for his hard work. Who else records individually 100 vocal harmony lines (vocal tracks)? Per song.
WAY too unknown. After checking youtube videos I can say so for sure. Blind Guardian songs should have 15-20+ million views at least.
Most versatile voice in Power Metal, he's two notes below any of the best and a full octave on the lower notes.
He should be in the top 3.
The current top 3 is comic and tragic at the same time - ZP, Bruce D. and M. Hudson (Bruce D. is not even power metal, ZP and M. Hudson in the top 3 is very debatable).
Eagle fly free! No one is close to Kiske on the high pitched notes.
Not only the most talented power metal singers, also his voices also seem smooth and nice to hear than other power metal singers
*Should be number 1
Should be Number one!
He sings with so much passion/emotion and he has a big vocal range definitely the best singer in the metal scene.
"The voice of god". The most passionate singer you'll ever heard, no other can convey emtions as Roy does.
A haunting voice. Both dark and beautiful.
He should be on top!
While he does not have the most "unique" voice, his vocals are extraordinary and clean and after 20 years he seems to keep getting better!
He's on his own league. He might not have the best voice, but so many years of Avantasia and singing with the best of them has certainly paid off, he gets better and better with every iteration.
Isn't he a power metal singer? I know that he doesn't have powerful vocals like Hansi or Michael. But his voice is good.
Hansi and ZP are both great. However I like Hansi's screaming more. And for slow vocals I like ZP's voice more.
Nothing will ever top Zippy.
Should be number 1
He has a great vocal range and an awesome and very emotional way of singing. Moreover he is amazing live! Should be number 1.
He's one of the best! He can do higher notes, lower notes (check Emerald Sword live in Canada on youtube) and more. Should at least be No. 2
Fabio has an impressive vocal range. His voice is wonderful and he puts a lot of emotions into his singing. Should be number 1
He should Be number 1
If we consider only technical vocal skills, Dio is #3 after Kiske and Hansi. But if we take into account the overall influence and importance - Dio is definitely #1.
I see no reason why he is not on #1. He definitely had an amazing voice and a big influence on the whole metal scene.
His technique and emotional singing were incomparable. RIP Andre, your highs have just reached the sky.
The best South-American singer (Brazil) and one of the top power metal singers.
Best vocal range ever.
Will be missed forever!
Just listen to carry on, nothing to say, make believe, never understand, his vocals are just unbelievably good
I'd hold him above ZP. He has a better tone and a fuller range.
Marc is also better live.
In this list ZP theart is the #2. But Hudson has Higher Notes, and lower notes,too. And I think, he has better tone, for power metal.
Iced earth is the most underrated metal band of all time and matt barlow is the most underrated vocalist.
She's a trained opera singer who does metal. Absolutely fantastic.
From God to Worst. Sonata has become a shadow of itself and that goes hand in hand with Tony's voice. His first albums though are mindblowing.
You may compare the singers studio album performances. Try listening to Tony's live performance like the live album For the Sake of Revenge (2006). Then compare with some live performance of Blind Guardian. And then it's a clear victory for Tony.
Best power metal vocalist! Live performances sound so fantastic. Insane range. This man's a genius!
Best song to hear what he's capable of would probably be News Travel Fast, White Pearls Black Oceans, or Don't Say A Word.
Tony is love
Tony is live
Tony has better vocals than the 85% of all metal singers in the world
Some of his best works are in his personal band of Tarot.
Jarkko belongs in the top 5! His vocal range is something like three and a half octaves and his high notes are truly impressive. He can sing almost anything, including opera. It's too bad he's not so well known outside Finland. He deserves to be more famous.
Powerful, beautiful and divine voice. Great range. Impressive sustain - he can hold it for 14-15 seconds, which puts him in one league with Michael Kiske/Helloween, Eric Adams/Manowar and Ralf Scheepers/Primal Fear.
Teräsbetoni - Pyhä maa (3:15)
Northern Kings - Don't bring me down (intro scream and 2:55-3:05! )
Also try one of Ahola's live performances in Viiala, last stop of his X-Mas charity tour - copy and paste into the YouTube window:
Ave Maria -- J. Ahola -- 8.12.2013
His Ave Maria (live! ) reveals his capacity to be an opera singer, too - the second half is more impressive (after 2:45), especially towards the end.
Kotipelto's voice was born for the power metal. He and the melodies from Stratovarius songs bring so much power and also a healing magic no other bands give
Pftt kotipelto's got more talent than all the guys on this list put together!
20th place? Are you kidding me?
There is no other sweet melodic powerful voice with a so huge range, specially in the high pitchs.
So hard to do that he, as Kiske, prefered to acommodate in a more usual range, doing what others do difficulty, simply with no effort.
Daniel will be a Legend for Lost Horizon and Heed, but for nothing more. He is wasting himself in bands like Lavett and similars.
Third Lost Horizon album with Daniel should be a present that world deserves.
As a professional singer that has been studying singing for more than a decade I can promise that he is just the best singer that exists right now. At least for power metal.
The only reason Daniel isn't #1 is because Lost Horizon never got as big as the other bands.
Daniel's vocals are on a completely different plane of existence especially his ability to sing it all live.
(Not that other power metal vocalists are bad in comparison, Daniel is just one in a million so it is not fair to compare.)
The best power metal singer of all time!
One of the absolute best voices of all of Europe.
