The Female Vocalists in Metal Who Impressed Me


They're not the typical stars we all used to know before,I really wanted to add some of very underrated but somewhat impressive vocalists. Any suggestion is welcomed,so let me know if you really know more.This is my first attempt of making a list, erm salute to these awesome ladies. Some of them are really inspirational.

Edit: I don't really want to mention every female passing by the metal neighborhood
EDIT 2: I changed the title and criteria, as the list is getting longer I avoid using any exact digit in the title, this list may exceed that digit anyway.So no more restrictions to any of them.

well because we've already heard about those ladies thousands of times, they're too overrated, I even wanted to remove the lady from Diablo Swing Orchestra too,because someone who had already studied music for years in conservatories is not really that talented actually is very skillful however she's still there

Nice list, surprised not to see the well-known ones like Tarja, Simone Simons and Vibeke Stene, but having less known ones is great.

Suggestions:
Sarah Layssac of Arkan
Chiara Malvestiti of Crysalys
Nera of Darzamat
Miriam "Sfinx" Renvåg of Ram-Zet
Laurie Ann Haus of Todesbonden
Lori Lewis of Aesma Daeva and Therion
Leïlindel of Unexpect

First of all, what does it matter whether the vocalists are well-known or not? If they're good, they're good. Simple as that.

Anyway, I noticed one of my favourite female vocalists Vibeke Stene isn't on this.

Since you already have quite a few not so well-known vocalists on here, I'm going to suggest the well-known (cliché) ones:
- Anita Auglend (The Sins of thy Beloved... seriously, her voice is just amazing and she might even be my favourite female vocalist, ever)
- Liv Kristine Espenæs Krull (Theatre of Tragedy)

Seriously, those 3 are easily among my favourites and I hope you will (consider) adding them to the list.

ok but read the introdution This is not about the typical stars of metal scene otherwise I should have added Cristina Scabbia too who is my own fav among those too hyped queens of metal

- Anita Auglend (The Sins of thy Beloved... seriously, her voice is just amazing and she might even be my favourite female vocalist, ever)
- Liv Kristine Espenæs Krull (Theatre of Tragedy)

Because she left Tristania and she doesn't sing anymore as far I remember she's a vocal coach now and I hate to add Tristania here while I know there is no Viebeke there and at the same time we all already know that everyone likes Vibeke, everyone praises her vocals, she has good vocals, performance,let's have more adventure in finding more new vocalists which are quite good but they're not really hyped that much.
Anita is not active anymore and as far I know there were some shows that she failed, I personally noticed that in spite of her beautiful voice she's not a very good vocalist very average, however I enjoy The Sins of Thy Beloved music, but I can't add her as a talented one to this list,I really can't spot on any of her skills as a spectacular one.

Liv has the same story of Tarja,Simone and Vibeke, ok I know, they're awesome, skilled,they have great performance and etc,we already had enough of them,their bands are always hyped

I even had doubts about Floor and Anneke, in comparison with those very known ones,these two have more outstanding vocals,their range,their skills in switching the styles and even songwriting let alone that their voices is outstanding enough, not just a typical soprano doing vocals for a gothic band,especially Floor.It's really easy to be beautiful and to be a soprano and get easily deals of attention and to be simply known

the second album 'Toxic Voodoo' was an immense step down, unfortunately. But the demo tracks that surfaced after that album were up to scratch again. Yesh too bad she drank herself into oblivion and finally to death.
Her vocals in Detente (before she started Fear Of God) are more straight forward thrash vocals.

Perhaps Marcela Bovio, singer for Stream of Passion?
There are few voices out there that are as pure as her.

Other than that though, pretty damn good list. There are a few I haven't heard of, so it looks like I've got some more music to check out!

Hehe, I see, don't worry. You've got one now!

As for her vocal talent, it's more about how emotive and pure her vocals are for me. She's one of the few female vocalists who can actually move me emotionally. 'Tis your list though, of course!

Well Anneke is imo one of those "popular singers" you didn't want to place here. And even more popular than her is Floor Jansen. After Forever was already well known, and now that she toured with Nightwish she is very far from an underrated singer.
