Best Female Fronted Metal Bands
« see full list
Arch Enemy is my favourite band, but that isn't the only reason I've voted them. As many has said, this is the most METAL band of the ones listed. Nightwish are great, and I would say they are metal, but not compared to Nightwish. And personally I don't think Evanescence counts as metal, just to mention the two bands that are above Arch Enemy here.
Well, you've to experience them live to fully understand why so many, so different people from all genre types adore them.
It's not just Angela's phenomenal voice and Michael's wicked melodic-death-metal riffs, it's the whole package of pure power and might that fills the air.
We you see them at first you'll never expect that such a slight/graceful little person like Angela could release an tremendous thunderstorm of deep growls. I couldn't believe it until I saw them live.
Don't expect some melodical finesse like Tarja Turunen. This is raw. This is pure unleashed power.
Yes, I'm a huge fan of that band. But I suggest everyone to at least check 'em out on youtube.
like @skt, I am not a big fan; I only like two songs of them ("Nemesis" and "Symphony of Destruction"), but this girl deserves to be in the first place. She demonstrated that men and women can be together in metal bands...
One of the only female fronted bands that are considered "true metal. " Nightwish sucks with their failed attempt at operatic vocals. Try Warrel Dane or Nevermore if you want a real operatic tone. On the other hand, Evanescence isnot even metal. Most female fronted bands these days are only selling the image and lack guitar solos and creative riffing, which is what makes a band in my opinion. Fortunately, Arch Enemy has both as the Amott brothers slay.
although I am not the biggest fan of Arch Enemy they deserve to be at the top of this list. As far as nightwish and evanescence I love them both a lot, however, neither band are a metal bad and they don't really belong on this list
Actualy I'm not a big fan of them.. but the truth is Arch enemy should be number one here... guys don't vote your favorite bands and guys in every list.. Vote for the One who actualy deserve that...! Arch enemy is num one here.. I love Evanscence and Flyleaf A loot... but in this catogary Arch enemy is better than them...
The combination of the Amott brothers dual guitar onslaught and Angela Gossow's guttural rants and musings set the standard by which all other bands in the genre must either measure up to or kneel before. Quite simply, Arch Enemy Kicks Ass!
The look people get on their face when I tell them that Angela is actually a woman (after hearing her voice of course) and not some giant guy with blood dripping down his chin is reason enough to vote for Arch Enemy.
The only true female fronted metal band on the list. Yes, Amy Lee's voice is amazing, and Nightwish has stunning vocals, but Arch Enemy is true to the metal genre with her vocals. I have always loved their music and her.
I don't really think I would go with evanescence and nightwish. Arch enemy doesn't deserve to be in 3rd.. In my opinion they are the best until they have Angella Gossow..
The only band with a female singer and still stays metal. Every other band with a female singer are just super gimmicky or some stupid symphonic pop band. At least the Amott brothers still shred and melt faces with their iconic guitar lines.
got that right if nightwish was metal this website would be a tv show
the fact that Nightwish is ahead of Arch Enemy in a metal category means something is wrong with the people voting.
Angry German Woman marching under Black Flag is a great live experience
Arch Enemy is the best metal band. But Within temptation is the best female band, too bad it ain't metal.
Best ever death metal band lead by a female vocalist. Mine Favorite of ARCH ENEMY is WE WILL RISE.
Spell BEST DEATH METAL EVER? Its capital "ARCH ENEMY" men! You rock the whole world!
Cause they are the best, I like angela gossow
This is heavy metal this should be number one..
Angela Gossow Is The BEST
Angela For ever and ever!
I love Arch Enemy and I would vote Nightwish if Tarja was still in vocals
Angela.. Lion from jerman.
The best scream vocal.
I like it
