Re: Hansi doing vocals on Iced Earth's Plagues of Babylon

I think Iced Earth has so much momentum right now that Jon just can't divert any of his attention to Demons & Wizards for the foreseeable future. However, having Hansi guest on 'Plagues of Babylon' is a good way to bridge that gap. I hope there's at least a couple songs in which Hansi and Stu duel a...

We've been working hard on completing our first full-length album but have come up against some difficulties in paying for the rest of the album, n...

Re: What are Hansi's highest notes?

"Highest notes Hansi sings?"
Right there is your problem--you don't measure Hansi's vocals in notation, you measure his singing using the Richter Scale :P

Re: Singing over "Wheel of Time" (orchestral version)

-Yes well as I said I don't try fitting myself into any genre or style, the way I sing is simply the way I naturally sing.
