I think it is not good.it is better that female vocalist sing in symphonic metal.not like arch enemy vocal in death.I think female vocalist cannot broadcast anger of metal.

Honestly though, I think female vocalists has no place in DEATH metal.

As the OP said, Female vocalists isn't just good enough on expressing the anger of death metal. I can't imagine a Female Vocalist covering a Suffocation song.


Thank you should check out Acrostichon. One of the very few bands I can stand the female vocalist. I am sure Corrine can easily cover a Suffocation song.

Agreed!!! Her voice is amazing.

Being a female myself, i don't mean to be bias or anything. But women can't pull off Death Metal. They belong in a different category where they can pull off beautiful melodies and look pretty doing it. Yeah i just said that.
However, women can do anything man can. lol lol

I find that I can really enjoy female vocals regardless of genre as long as the vocals suit the song and add to it rather than standing out like they don't belong.


agree with you .it dosen't matter what genre they are.it is important that the vocals fit the music.i listen to many bands with different genres that have female vocalists.melodic death metal with clean vocals like system divide,melodeath with harsh vocals like arch enemy.i also prefer female vocalists in genres like gothic/doom and symphony metal.for example i can't imagine draconian without lisa johanson or epica without simone

It depends on the vocalist. There's probably a few guys who shouldn't be doing death vocals either. I could name one that I really hate, but I don't wasnt to start a fight couse he's really popular and I think I'm the only one here who hates his voice.
Anyway, some chicks can express anger in their voices. Does anyone know any that can strech their voices from Turunen to Gossow, and do them both well?

I am hoping for Corpsegrinder because then I wholeheartedly would agree with him.
Or of course Chuck, but his death vocals were still good on the early Death albums.

Well I don't mind female vocalists, but I prefer having a male singer. Personally I enjoy Music that have a male singer as main vocal, and a female singer as backup as it brings a nice touch.

I do like it. A decade ago I was a complete sucker fot the gothic/symphonic gothic metal that features a lot of female vocalists and I still do enjoy it. I'm not very aware of females in the extreme metal scene, because almost every band from that part of metal I listen to is male-fronted. The only gal that has me kicking is Cadaveria, I love her wicked vocal abilites.

All in all, throught the years I got to discover that I have become more and more critical to female vocals in general. And suma summarum, when I draw the line, the gal I admire, love and respect the most is Anneke Van Giersbergen. The later The Gathering were not metal though, neither is her current work, but whenever she does guest vocals on any metal band/album/song, she sounds absolutely divine and contributes a whole lot to it.

I'm not entirely sure he counts as death vocals, though the few songs I've heard with him are definatly harsh vocals. I won't name names but because I couldn't stand his voice (and remember, I listen to Gallhammer) I havn't got to hear much of the great Dimebag Darrell.

I don't think women CAN'T do death metal. I think few can do it well. I see quite a few people using Angela (ex-Arch Enemy) as an example of not doing it well and I think that they are fucking crazy. She is one of the female growlers that I can actually get into. She has the power and MUCH more importantly, the articulation to not sound like a psycho-babbling moron like half of the growling males do. That's one reason I like Lamb of God. Randy articulates much better than most, in my opinion.

If you a speaking about who I think you are speaking about, I totally agree with you, though the main thing keeping me away from Darrel is his guitar tone.
