I don't know about that. Kai has never come off as operatic to me. I mean, aside from him doing his occasional bombastic choir bits (see: middle of Valley of the Kings). I don't think he's remotely close to some other guys as far as classical training in metal vocalists goes. See: Khan (Kamelot) and Harry Conklin (Jag Panzer).
