Top 10 Rock and Metal Songs that Blind Guardian Should Cover


The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

This would be very interesting to see what these guys can do. Hansi has the voice, I can see him really giving it all. I'd be curious if they did cover if they try to incorporate some of their styles in it or stay true to the original. Either way this would be really cool if it happened. - cjWriter1997

Would be a perfect fit for Blind Guardian and they would basically Perfect it and probally make the greatest cover of all time - christangrant

The most iconic rock song is also the biggest challenge but if there's a band able to create a listenable cover, this would be namely Blind Guardian.
Technically, Hansi can sing this song - he's got the needed power, range, aggression, emotion. And Hansi is also the singer who can do the multi-layered vocals in the best possible way - he's been called "The Freddie Mercury of metal" for a reason.
But I don't think Hansi would try to mimic Freddie because their voices sound different - so Hansi would not sound exactly like Freddie but he would sound awesome in his own right. - Metal_Treasure

2 Holy Diver - Dio Holy Diver - Dio

Blind Guardian can do great covers of all Dio songs sung by him with all his bands. Among all metal singers, Hansi voice is naturally the closest possible to Dio's. You may not feel it on Blind Guardian's original recordings because their songs are different style and Hansi usually uses different vocal techniques.
But when you hear Blind Guardian cover of Don't Talk To Strangers, you will understand what I am talking about. - Metal_Treasure

3 Rainbow In the Dark - Dio Rainbow In the Dark - Dio
4 Painkiller - Judas Priest
5 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden
6 Stargazer - Rainbow
7 Phantom of the Opera - Iron Maiden
8 The Touch - Stan Bush

Not many people have heard this song but this song us already an epic song and if Blind Guardian it might be more amazing than the original already is - christangrant

9 Wasted Years - Iron Maiden
10 The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel

The Vocal preformance here would just be amazing - christangrant

Hansi is known for his powerful and epic voice but I am sure he can do a perfect cover of this song, too. The reason is that Hansi actually has several different voices and one of them is surprisingly soft, smooth and lyrical. He just has to "put on" the voice he used in Harvest Of Sorrow by Blind Guardian. I also think that Hansi can do the vocal harmonies a bit better. The original vocal harmonies are performed great but I know Hansi could improve them a bit. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 In the Presence of Enemies - Dream Theater

This would sound amazing with his voice. - The_Infinity_Pizza

12 Tears of a Mandrake - Edguy

A Power Metal band covering another Power Metal band's song? I'd be curious to see what they can do with it. Both bands are awesome. - cjWriter1997
