They are simply one of the best industrial rock bands in the world! I can never understand why they aren't recognized internationally.
Chibi's vocals are unique! The band is amazing, and again I'll say: the sound they make are unique!
Alexis has the best female screamo voice. SLS should defiantly be a lot higher on the list
They have done well over the 11 years. They have been on tour and are interesting in there delivery. I haven't seen them but read they are good live. I think they should be higher than 17th place
Straight line stitch is my all time favorite female vocals for any screamo band. I saw them live at meyhemfest and they were so good! they definitely should be higher on the listMore comments about Straight Line Stitch
Floor Jansen is one of the worlds best singers in this genre. Her voice reaches from opera till grunts, what she does is fascinating. I can't really tell, what's my favourite song because I love them all.
It's really sad, that this band doesn't exist anymore. But you can hear Floor sing with the band Revamp.
Awesome band. They have developed well through there career. I say the deserve top ten status.
Amazing band with sexy female members and incredible music. One of my top 3 favorite bands.
Awesome... I love alexia and annisa.. The music is so great aw niceMore comments about Eyes Set to Kill
Tristania was epic with vibeke and mortem. Of ruins and a red nightfall and aphelion and beyond the veil are the best
Tristania is the best female fronted metal band, but with Vibby, not with Mariangela.
Tristania was the real gothic metal. But the band just wasn't the same when Morten left, and later Vibeke. Now they're just another band, not to mention Mariangela can't sing.
I liked them with Vibeke Stene. Though new singer is not bad too.
Amberian Dawn is the most unique sounding band of the genre with Heidi Parviainen's fantastic soprano vocals and the band's driving metal riffs coupled with catchy songs. You can never mistake and AD song for any other band's.
Candace Kucsulain Is one of the sweetest women I have ever met.
If you want to see hell on stage, she is the female master of stage presence
watching this Vixen of hardcore on stage you think at any moment she is going to jump off and start beating everyone to a bloody mess. But off the stage she is very sweet and has such an amazing honesty about her.
New band of great Floor Jansen!
Very good songs
The best vocalist ever is here. Floor Jansen. She got the most range and can belt and be operatic.
Nice symphonic metal band. I like their music, especially their last album "The Quiet Resistance". Just hear "Caught In The Middle" and you all understand.
The best symphonic metal band ever! JUST LISTEN! Their "MANA" album is something! I like "Mortalitas I Moriendum Tibi Est" from "MANA" album!
I like speed music they play! Manda's voice is incredible! I listen their music during trips and it's really gives me a power!
mortal love's creations are great. too bad guys. hope you'll come back soon.
They're pretty good. Don't want to be an ass but they're not the best. The album "My Fatal Kiss" was the best album in my opinion and their latest one, "All Beauty Must Die" is pretty good just not as great as the previous album mentioned.
Their other albums aren't in English so you're sol if you don't understand the language.
The Warlock albums fronted by Doro Pesch were all amazing and so is her solo career. Great voice and the true queen of metal
She is one of my favorite vocalists.. Her voice is perfect and I wish I got the same one! The music is so great that I had to download all their songs so I can listen to them all day every day.. :) Ok.. I really don't know what to say except go and listen to some of their songs.. MOW! :)
They are my favorite female fronted metal band easily. Masha (the singer) has an amazing clean voice as well as great harsh vocals. Not to mention their mix of metal and folk is one of the best I have heard.
Awesome band. It is a different style of music. You should give it a chance! Go listen to Slavsia Rus - Goi, Rode, Goi - Yarilo - Liki Bessmertnykh Bogov - Slovo. Go!
Last three albums are classic Viking metal. It just does't get any better.
Sabine has one of the best female vocals I have heard in metal
Simply the best! No other band or singer on this list comes close to Therion. The creators of symph metal.
therion is the best symphonic metal band in the world, and Cristofer Johnsson is a genius! And classical music and metal is a great combination!
Karyn can blow any chick on this list out of the water. No disrespect intended towards the other vocalists, but Karyn is the real deal.
Saw them live many times, super energy on stage and very charismatic singer!
Great and original band and nice people, I really like them!
I simply like them and like the voice of Karolina. They must be at a better place. :)
Like Save my life and Eversleeping.
I wouldn't have voted for this one before but now that they have hired Manuella Kraller it's one of the best bands here (if not the best). I still haven't seen anyone complaining about their new sound. With just 1 album with Manuella they've reached something amazing. Just like Nightwish did with Tarja. I expect REALLY good things from them, I'm sure they are going to become a legend in Female Fronted Metal!
Have all their albums and one can see how their sound is progressing. Nowt wrong withem becoming more symphonic especially as they are doing an awesome job at it. Their singers have bought different angles to the music, and it would not be right to state who is better than who - so I won't. I agree with the previous opionionist, they should be higher up this list.
whats wrong with the people! They should on the Top! check out their new album and the song "Don't Mess Around".
this band has more than 13 years playing, passing by differents styles
doogothic metal/experimental metal/ and so on, I like the old times of the gathering when anneke van gierbergen were there but still sounds pretty cool with the new vocalist Silje.
best songs: eleanor!, strange machines, leaves... Anyways just check Mandylion album is cool
What the hell is this doing down here!? People need to open their ears up. Great japanese bands like onmyouza and liv moon have fantastic vocals. Hell, throw in matatabi with kuroneko and you get marco and tarja from nightwish. Their number 2 in my book, and if you give them a listen they should b in yours as well
Kuroneko is a great singer (as are the rest) and the band have created 11 masterful albums. Very consistent with great talent. Others may disagree but Onmyouza is my favourite. m/
Grate band with strong guitars and drums. Their two albums are amazing.
Why this band is stuck this far down the list is an... OUTRAGE! Just listen to their 2nd album Til Death Do Us Party ^^ you'll agree this is band belongs in the top 10
Best gothic doom band. Masters from Sweden. Divine gentle voice of Lisa. Beautiful, atmospheric music...
Both male and female fronted band. Lisa is one of the most beautiful female voices in metal music. Her ethereal voice with anders's deep beautiful growling creates a great atmosphere. Draconian is only metal band whose music fill my eyes with tears.
I absolutely love this band and they should be MUCH higher than 88th place! The vocals on this girl are stunning! I would do anything to see them live and watch the way (i'm sure) they get a crowd going!
From the band SANGUINE.
She's hot and can do a big range of vocal styles. Tonight is their best gothic metal track, other songs are varied styles.
Has anyone checked out their new single For Love? It's bloody brilliant!
Romantic, symphonic and rock. Very different from any other band I ever heard.
Very Great Symphonic Metal Band from Finland, Indica are 5 Pretty Girls, very hot
Amazing girls, amazing album, amazing live, can't wait for their next album!
These girls changed my life, their album changed my life. They are super talented and they are just 14-16 years old. Beautiful, funny, cute girls!
Cool band great voice mixing different singing styles. Dark atmospheres from death metal to gothic.
Just got cadaveria new album horror metal and I cannot stop listening to it. Good sound with great vocals.
Awesome band and Liv sings with such a wonderful raw rockvoice. One of the best metalbands from sweden. Even better live than on records.
You haven't lived till you felt experienced this band! They are awesome!
Not so well-known but great band. The singer is a good dancer.
Best female vocals on the list. Heavy, progressive style music with incredible, emotive vocals
Gothic metal, Evanescence and Nightwish's follower. Really enjoy their last album Easy Death.
Love Autumn, great vocals and one of the few bands listed here that is progressive. From my "New Time" to "Cold comfort" they are on a roll!
If you haven't heard about this band you don't know anything about female rock bands. With only one album "Are yoman enough", they are the very best and powerful band of the history.
Australian rock band in the late 1990s - early 2000s, that are quite underrated IMO
Very good symphonic power band with operatic female vocals - Nicole Bogner, Melissa Ferlaak and Maxi Nil
