Well Lately I've been looking for some bands with awesome and beautiful female vocals I've been dealing with bands like Epica, Within Temptation, diablo Swing Orchestra, After Forever and (my favorite) Leave's Eyes...

So, I'm looking for voices lined towards Sara Brightman you know? angelic voices with a very sweet tone and style....please don't recommend stuff lined towards Diamanda Galas or that shemale Angela Gossow

STILL!!! If you have something alternative...(not metal)...stuff like The Sundays, Veruca Salt, The Birthday Massacre or whatever you want please recommend, I'm willing to try everything with a sweet melodious voice.

THANKS!

oh...and (to give something to this topic) I recommend all the bands I posted lol.

What I'd like to hear is an aggressive and characteristic female vocalist that does clean vocals, because 99% of the time clean vocals done by a woman sound pop-ish.
Have you heard Julie Kiss of the almost-as-sexy To-Mera? Her vocals aren't that aggressive but I think they combat your second sentence-half.

Thrash you mentioned in a previous post; it could be Holy Moses, Nothing Left for Tomorrow, Détente, Izegrim, Decadence, Triton Enigma...

How about Magali Luyten (Virus IV and Beautiful Sin)? Clean vocals, lots of power and aggression in them...

Tarja from ex-Nightwish is a perfect vocalist. They made a big mistake to fire her. I also like Mara from Angelika & Demons, her voice is much like Tarja's.

There are just a few bearable female vocals: Anneke, Tarja, Angela, maybe Therion girls, girl from Arkona and maybe few more. Sexy sweet gothic vocalists played a great role in killing of the soul in metal music.

As this is very visited forum i need to point to the new THE FORESHADOW-OIONOS album - try it, it is just beautiful!

Have you guys seen this?http://www.themetalpit.ca/metalmaidens.html

It's a bunch of cool metal chicks, interviews with them and pictures. Pretty hot, I must say.

Also, allow me to recommend my own band, only because we do in fact have a female singer. Might be just what you're looking for.

I really like Tarja, but Liv Kristine from Leave's Eyes also sounds amazing, especially live.

I can't stop promoting Eilera. She isn't operatic or anything like that, but she is one of the more unique voices in metal. Find the thread for links n stuff!

Well, if the thread was called "Need help in finding a good female-fronted metal band" then yes.. maybe we cant discuss bands that he wouldnt like.. but the topic is "best female voices in metal" .. so, he can't force us to "exclude" angela other harsh vocals .. the guy is simply saying his opinion.

The title would imply this indeed, but since the opening post clearly shows, that he was looking for recommendations for himself, and had requirements for the posts, then Intro's observation was completely correct...It also makes sense that the title is what it is, because otherwise it would take too much space. The opening post is always there for clarification.

No, you don't
Sinergy's Kimberly Goss. A real metal singer. No shitty theatrics, ethereal whining, operatic ambitions. Just plain, strong, clear metal singing. Check out "To Hell and Back".

Seraphim is a good power metal band.

You should listen to Amberian Dawn, operatic power metal band.
-Coronatus, female-fronted duet gothic metal,
- Krypteria, german gothic metal band,
- Midnattsol Folk metal band, though Liv Kristine's sister isn't as good as her, in my opinion.
- Haggard also has some pretty nice Soprano backed with growls.
- Lunatica, swiss symphonic metal band

You already know Epica, which has my favorite female vocalist. Draconian is pretty good, and Elisa Martin, Dark Moor and Fairyland's old vocalist, is good too.

Angela Gossow from Arch Enemy has been mentioned and she's great.

Also, Simone Pluijmers from Cerebral Bore is a great BDM vocalist.
