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.

I am talking about the one from Hawaii where Marty Friedman played in until 1982. So not the Vixen whcih became popular later on which was an all female band.


oh I didn't know that ! I see.

the thing is that Tristania is still active with another vocalist and Vibeke doesn't do any vocals in the scene at all.


So what? The Gathering is also active with another vocalist right now. The vocalist of Fear of God has passed away and After Forever also called it quits (although Floor is still active with ReVamp and Nightwish). And Vibeke is a teacher now, so she still sings, just indeed not in the metal scene.

Ahhh, but we can't be underground black metal elitists all the time, now can we?
I have pretty high standards when it comes to metal because of all the obscure, mindfuckingly creative shit that's my preference, but that's not to say I don't enjoy and recognize the talents of some more mainstream acts too


Hahaha, that's true I guess. Same here, although I'm way less into obscure/underground metal than you. However, that doesn't mean I'm actually into mainstream stuff either... I'm kind of in between those, if that makes any sense.

Written by Marcel Hubregtse on 18.09.2013 at 13:19

well, I am, and having read somewhere that she is a vegetarian I am pretty sure MC Vise is talking about her as well, especially since she Always seems to pop up on most talented female vocalists threads.


I agree she's overrated and I also really dislike her. Not to mention she indeed looks like a tranny, being totally unattractive (due to the growling mainly, but also appearance and behaviour). Hell, she isn't even that great of a vocalist. Not being sexist here, but woman should leave the growling to men, who simply are better at it.

99% of the growling chicks do it better than Gossow.



I'd also add Martina Astner to the list. Best female vocalist Therion had.

And Vibeke is a teacher now, so she still sings, just indeed not in the metal scene.



Because Vibeke has only one style, her band had already enough of attention and had been mentioned several times before,but Anneke and Floor have several styles and they're much more spectacular,they're not just sopranos from a gothic female-fronted band, especially Floor and both of them still are active with different bands,Anneke was that good that featured Devin Townsend 2012 album and also she's a good songwriter and lyricist.I really can't ignore them as talented vocalists on this list although they're already overrated enough but I think they deserved it.

How come no one's mentioned Doro Pesch yet?

And I thought of Doro too, but again I think she's not really nor underrated neither talented or special vocalist.

I meant that I was surprised that while people wondered where Tarja, etc. were, no one had moaned that she's not there.

I rate the 16yo Runhild (Thorr's Hammer) as the no.3 growler I've heard, behind Swano and Akerfeldt.

a good female growler doesn't mean that the female vocalist does it same as a guy.Guys growler can suck as a lady growler can suck too,if a lady growler is good it's not because she growls louder than a guy,or doing it the same as guys.And there isn't no precise rule for that.

off-topic responsd (well actually to all guys who have almost the same opinion) : these kind of opinions are too biased in my opinion.Women are not those ornamented creatures with sweet voices who have been always expected by society and medias, please let go of such stereotypes in rating someone's talents in doing something quite well.

Well, you might be right about the growling, but I probably just haven't heard many convincing female vocalists who growl.

And my opinion isn't biased, I was simply stating that I dislike Angela Gossow. Just her, not all the other women that growl. Also, when looking purely at vocals: a woman with nice clean vocals is infinitely more attractive to most men than a woman who growls, simple as that. I'm not talking about whether they are good or not as vocalists.

How about Laura Ferreux from Elevenstorm? Sara Squadrani from Ancient Bards. Federica di Boni from White Skull. Marta Gabriel from Crystal Viper. They are all very talented ladies who belong on anyone's list of best female vocalists. Too bad Lzzy Hale from Halestorm isn't metal. She's more talented and has a better voice than any female metal vocalist.
