Women of Doom

I love doom metal in all its forms and I also happen to like a lot of female-fronted metal. Combined, these two elements can potentially result in great music and therefore I decided to create this list. The only criteria I have is that there has to be female vocals on at least the majority of the album so no "beauty and the beast"-style bands.

1. 13 - Hollow / Bound
2. A Tree Of Signs - Salt
3. Acid King - Busse Woods
4. Alunah - White Hoarhound
5. Anagram To Anna - God, Me & Monsters
