Re: Hansi's high notes on ATEOT

His highest note ever is in the video Led Guardian posted above - but one shouldn't count that, as it's basically a shriek. Apart from that one Battlefield also has some seriously high backing vocals (I think, they're the most wicked on Opera) - but I never checked, how high they exactly are. As I d...
