I'm sure we don't want the list filled with over the top power metal vocals, but I think a track off Outworld's album is worthy.
Perhaps City of the Dead or Outworld.
That 17 second note towards the end of the former is pretty incredible too.

Apparently not epic enough for Sherick to consider taking it off a bad idea.

Also, Sherick, Michael Kiske sings "A Tale That Wasn't Right."

There are better tunes from Halford, and better by others.
