If you can handle Angela Gossow (female screamo) from Arch Enemy, go for it.

Im exceedingly suspect of female vocalists in the metal realm. Not so because of thier talents but moreso the intent in which they are used. Id like to think that Angela Gassow(sp?) is not just part of some marketing scheme to cater to guys.

I hold the integrity of heavy metal near and dear to my heart and have some major disdain if I feel they(women) are being used as a sexual device to sell records, and gain larger crowds on tour. In any other setting I couldnt care less about sex as a selling point.

Metal should always = integrity of the music. Let pop rock and rap music use near naked women as thier lure if they so need be to cover up thier lack of ability to sell records and get noteriety. Let the music speak for itself.

I think my favorites are Lita Ford and Lee Aaron...I love the video of Lita Ford and Ozzy doing Close My Eyes Forever. You can actually see the video if you search for the song

I love a good women metal singers. I'm a huge Amy Lee fan. She is awesome. Nancy Wilson back in the day was really good. Although they were more mainstream rock. Lacey Mosley from Flyleaf is not bad either.

Female rock/metal singers eh? My favorite.

I consider the fest female metal vocalist to be Within Temptation's Sharon den Adel. She can be powerful and aggressive one song, yet delicate and beautiful the next. Here's a few samples of Sharon's work
The Howling: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bqRn0rLq1c&feature=user
Ice Queen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_GHx0dhkbc

I also like Nightwish's new vocalist Annette Olzen. Her voice is very powerful and not annoyingly operatic like Tarja Turunen's was (don't get me wrong Tarja's a great singer, but she held Holopanien's songwriting back whereas Annette's more versatile voice allows him to experiment). She has potential to become my new favorite, but den Adel has many solid albums under her belt, Annette is still a relative unknown.
Amaranth: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdZn7k5rZLQ
Sahara: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvDBD_kNs6c

Lacuna Coil's Cristina Scabbia is also very good. The song I've chosen as a sample from her is far from Lacuna Coil's most popular, but the haunting tone of her voice had me captivated for every single second.

Tarja Turunen - singer of Nightwish. Liv Kristine - Leaves Eyes, Theatre of Tragedy. Lots of women can sing, but her voice have a unique sound about it that's sweet on the ears.

Of course can't forgot the gorgeous redhead Simone Simon from Epica. Great singer and preformer. Also worthy of mentioning - singer from Xandria, Sirenia, and Tristania. Edenbridge also have a nice singer, but I can't stand her voice for some reason.

Bad singer: Amy Lee. Just because she's a widely acknowledged singer doesn't mean that she's good. Popular opinion isn't necessarily right. ;-) Her voice suck on stage without the effect of vocal correcting programs. (The music is also pure suckage.)

melonaide777- Night Wish/Anette And, Shocker Stalin/Ban Le'sage, In This Moment/Maria Brink, Epica/Simone Simons, The Asonist/Alissa White-Gluz.
I don't consider Evanescence metal, but man can Amy Lee sing.
As far as power house female singers, I highly recommend Lita Ford and Ann Wilson.

I can't read through all of these to see who has been mentioned and who has not, but I happen to love talented female vocalists and am more than willing to make some suggestions.

First, I suggest Floor Jansen from After Forever.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EsQPoKk9UQ&ob=av2n

Anna from Eluveitie has a superb voice as well.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1lXdLus2WI

Simone Simons, of Epic, of course.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csYBwZPCleY&feature=fvsr

Liv Kristine from Leaves' Eyes.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b15yaPYNDRU

I'm sure there are others that I'm not remembering, but those popped into my head first.

Anathema - They're not metal now, but they started out as Death Metal. They still get reviewed on metal sites. Lee Douglas is the female vocalist of this vocal duo (sometimes trio), and her voice is fantastic. They just put out a new album, Weather Systems, and it's phenomenal.

Although she's nowhere near metal, my favorite female vocalist is Mary Fahl, previously of The October Project. She's since embarked on an EXTREMELY underrated solo career, and released such heartbreaking folk ballads as Going Home and Gravity. I suggest YouTubing both tracks, as you'll be blown away by her soulful melancholy voice.

Lacuna Coil's Cristina Scabbia is also very good.


I saw them last month with Megadeth. I was about 15 feet from her.

I damn near pissed myself when she stepped out on to the stage. She's one of the most stunning women I've ever seen in my life.

How about "Fanny"? Surely they were almost the forerunners of female hard rock bands? Granted, they did not have an absolute lead singer as such but both the Millington sisters could belt out the vocals. Well supported by Nicky Barclay and Alice De Buhr and, later, Suzi's Sis, Patti Quatro. The other unique thing for a "manufactured" band was that they could actually play their instruments and play them well. They had all served as session misicians for all sorts of top dogs.

There is a cracking video of them on Whistle Test back in 1971 on U tube and some more!

Thread bump here.

I really like Maria Brink from In This Moment. She's a good screamer.

Cooldog65...whoa just did a YouTube search on some of their tunes. Wow.
They certainly have quite a Marilyn Manson vibe going on there.

The hard guitar sound coupled with the female vocals reminds me somewhat of Within Temptation a bit.

I was not familiar with Within Temptation, but I really like her. I like a sexy mouth.

I'm guessing you saw some later stuff by In This Moment. Their earlier stuff sounded different. This is from 2007:
Prayers (HIGH QUALITY): https://youtu.be/Oppxl1F2fNo

I also like Shirley Manson from Garbage. They're not exactly hard rock, but kind of rock/alternative. Another sexy mouth.
