Ralf Scheepers (born 5 February 1965 in Esslingen, Germany) is the current vocalist for German power metal outfit Primal Fear. He has a relatively high-pitched tenor-esque singing voice and sometimes uses a shriek reminiscent of Judas Priest's Rob Halford, although it is his baritone lows which give him a near four octave range in the modal register. He has also sung in Gamma Ray and Tyran' Pace. Ralf Scheepers has also done guest vocals for the bands Scanner, Therion, Ayreon, and Shadow Gallery and worked with Tom Galley on Phenomena's "Blind Faith" album.
