Women of Doom


Doom is one of my favorite sub genres of metal. The main reason being is the sheer diversity it offers, not only in terms of styles but also vocally. Female vocalists are of course no exception and that is what I have decided to highlight with this list. The few criteria I have is that it has to be doom metal in one way or another and that there are female vocals on at least the majority of the album, i.e no "beauty and the beast"-style bands. Obviously this is by no means a complete list so feel free to suggest bands that might be missing.

Enjoy!

Why didn't you list the actual "women of doom" (added the names of the vocalists to the albums)?

Pretty complete and thorough list.

Mares of Thrace are the only band I can think of that aren't here. There a a few others but I'm guessing they've been omited for not being quite metal or doom, like Jess and the Ancient Ones, Ides of Gemini, Christian Mistress and the like.

Christian Mistress is on MA, Idea Of Gemini and Jess And The Ancient Ones weirdly enough aren't yet Jex Thoth is also on it. Once again MA baffles with its ruling as to what bands are acceptable and what bands aren't

Unlike the bands Joe mentioned, I do consider Jex Thoth's music "doomy" enough to warrant a spot on the list and they are actually tagged as such on both MA and MS.

At least the majority of vocals have to be female in order for an album to be on the list. Nox Aurea have too much harsh male vocals.

I find them difficult to categorize but I would still say that they are both drone and sludge hybrids to a varying degree. Monarch's first few albums are more drone focused compared to the last two for example.

Much appreciated! As you can see, there is no shortage of female fronted doom in all of its subgenres so I hope you discover something you like.
