Top 10 Best Tim 'Ripper' Owens Vocal Performances


The Top Ten

1 Cathedral Spires - Judas Priest

Best Owens song

Best Owens song

Tim 'Ripper' Owens isn't Rob Halford but he's a great singer in his own right. Tim voice is more brutal and demonic than Halford's voice.
I prefer this vocal performance over the Grammy nominated Bullet Train but it's a close battle. - Metal_Treasure

2 Bullet Train - Judas Priest

With this song he was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance in 1999 but lost out to Metallica's "Better than You". - Metal_Treasure

3 Ten Thousand Strong - Iced Earth Ten Thousand Strong - Iced Earth

He did a very good job on this song, including a great intro scream (13 seconds long) and later a second scream for about 12 secs.
His time in Iced Earth wasn't easy - Iced Earth fans just wanted Matt Barlow back. What can I say? - Matt Barlow is awesome but it doesn't mean Tim 'Ripper' is a bad singer. - Metal_Treasure

4 Be Careful What You Wish For - Yngwie Malmsteen

What's not to like here vocal-wise? Tim's got incredible power, range and vocal technique - Metal_Treasure

5 Wages of Sin - Winter's Bane

A song with remarkable sustain of about 12 secs. - Metal_Treasure

6 Burn In Hell - Judas Priest

This is a live version and as you can hear, not bad at all. - Metal_Treasure

7 Flight of Icarus - Tim 'Ripper' Owens

This is an Iron Maiden cover and I think Tim 'Ripper' Owens did a very good job, including the sustain of 12-13 seconds which is available in the original sang by Bruce Dickinson. - Metal_Treasure

8 Santa Claus Is Back In Town - Tim Ripper Owens, Steve Morse, Vinny Appice, Marco Mendoza, Juan Garcia

One of my favorite metal versions of X-mas songs: his vocals are very interesting here, especially towards the end. This song shows his versatility as a singer. - Metal_Treasure

9 Machine Man - Judas Priest

Probably my favorite song from Demolition (yes, there are songs from this album I like - give them a listen and judge for yourself). - Metal_Treasure

10 Death Dealer - Yngwie Malmsteen

Yngwie Malmsteen composes songs that aren't easy to sing and for that reason all Yngwie singers have been above the average, including Tim. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Hell Is Home - Judas Priest

This song is awesome and catchy...Tim is ripping everything what his awesome voice
