Avantasia - 2001 The Metal Opera
Tobias Sammet is in essence the lead vocalist for Edguy, and while he is definitely still a part of that band, he needed an outlet for some of the material he had written that didn't fit into the Edguy mould. Avantasia is quite an adventurous project melding grandiose, over-the-top orchestration with melodic speed metal guitars, operatic vocals (just look at the list of singers) and multi-layered choruses.

Avantasia - 2008 The Scarecrow
Tobias Sammet's returns with the third Avantasia instalment. While the earlier two are both recommended listening, I feel 'The Scarecrow' stands in a field on its own in terms of successfully using multiple vocalists.
