Roy Khan - Awesome!! hard rock/metal singer

Classically trained (was well on his way to being a good opera singer) before he quit to join Conception and later Kamelot. You won't hear Khan wheeze like a punctured bicycle tire between phrases....

The first song is more about skills, the second more about hit potential and ripping off grieg something fierce ;-) The third song is an awesome power ballad featuring Simone Simons from Epica

Oh; and just as a pre-emptive strike regarding great singers in hard rock/metal: Don't even TRY to bring in that wanna-be diva Tarja Turinen formerly of Nightwish. If you really buy her stories about being a world-class soprano and state so here, you will get owned like a 1976 VW Beetle
