Re: Best Power Metal vocalist?

Yeah, Fabio is really good singer, but I have sometimes problems with understanding his English and i.e. Hansen is pretty good understandable. I'm aware that it is not the most important thing in vocalists, but I do notice it. My choirmaster always corrected us to sing more precisily. But Hansen is...

Re: Best Power Metal vocalist?

How is Fabio Lione not on that list, but Kai Hansen is? He is, by far, the best power metal singer, and one of the few that I'd call and actual "singer." After that, I love Marco Sandron and Alfred Romero. Bridget Fogle and Elisa Martin are my favorite female vocalists. In fact, Bridget Fogle is pro...

Re: Rhapsody of Fire are back!

I love the new mini-CD, mostly because it feels a lot like a mini-version of SOEL2.

Oh, and by the way, SOEL2 is not only my favorite Rhapsody of Fire album...It is my favorite album of all-time. No CD even comes close, with exception to Elements Pt. 1.

Re: Helloween - Are You Metal

Chorus sucked, but the rest of the song was awesome, even though I like I'm Free a lot more.

Also, I am one of the few that thought Unarmed was awesome. It's version of Dr. Stein, in my opinion, is better than the original.

Re: Rhapsody of Fire are back!

Their new mini-CD is a VAST improvement over Frozen Tears of Angels. Frozen Tears just sounded as amateurish as Legendary Tales. Most everyone that loved it seemed to love it SOLELY because it was heavier and faster. Nevermind the fact that it sounded like total shit. But metal heads are fairly stup...

Re: Avantasia - The Wicked Symphony and Angel of Babylon leaked

I listened to the albums again. I still don't like them. They don't work in any single of the genres it tries to be. It doesn't work as power metal and it doesn't work as hard rock. Sammet has really lost it. I thought that The Scarecrow was just a fluke, but I was wrong. He has ruined both Edguy an...

Re: New Chinese dates, New Lauri Video, New album news

I like it. Doesn't sound like a song I'd listen to over and over again, but I can only do that with very few songs. It did sound a lot more relaxed and less nervous than Polaris though. Wasn't a fan of Polaris, but in music, debut albums (I'd consider Polaris a debut album, even if it featured band ...

I don't like the new song. It sounds like they are trying WAY too hard to capture the energy of their earlier albums.

Re: Koti`s voice?

I rarely ever hear a power metal singer perfect live. In fact, the only one I can think of that is close to perfection live is Fabio Lione, who is around Kotipelto's ago (a couple years younger I believe) and is still amazing. But Kotipelto has never been perfect. I recall an Anthem of the World per...
