The Top Ten
His vox are awesome throughout the entire song but try espicially 5:05-6:05 - Metal_TreasureV 1 Comment
It's not my favorite song but I put it at #1 because it's an epic vocal performance. Some really tough stuff to sing. - Metal_Treasure
My fave song from him - vox in the intro and the chorus are just what I need to hear. And his sustain of about 13 seconds is awesome. - Metal_Treasure
Can you believe, Tobi sings jazz in the middle of a metal song and sounds amazing! (3:25-4:25).
By the way I know nothing about this band (Aina). I mean Tobi sang for many lesser known bands and people are not aware of his full vocal potential. - Metal_Treasure
Pleasure start to finish - Metal_Treasure
The intro sream is one of the best I've ever heard - long, powerful and beautiful. - Metal_Treasure
A remarkable duet with Jorn Lande. - Metal_Treasure
A song with additional vocals from Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian). Tobi and Hansi singing together - can't get any better! - Metal_Treasure
Sustain: 14-15 seconds - Metal_Treasure
Thanks for adding this, wolphert.
Tobias Sammet just doesn't have bad vocal performances and it was difficult to select only 10 songs. - Metal_Treasure
This is an ABBA cover - it takes guts to do a song originally by the blonde songbird but Tobi sounds really really good. I like the cover in general - it's one of the best metal covers of pop songs - Metal_Treasure
I think the Mandrake album has his best vocal showing and none of the songs are weak vocally, this is the weakest vocal performance off the entire album - germshep24
I love how he sings the chorus to this songs especially the end - germshep24
I was relistening to to my Edguy mp3 collection and I was amazed by this forgotten song, Sammet screams his heart out on this song - germshep24
