Best Female Fronted Metal Bands
« see full list
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.
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.
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...
How Angela Gossow isn't at the top is beyond me... It's not just her voice that she should be in first for, it's the way she can control the audience too. That's what it means by fronted, not just who's the best singer.
This band is so unique in all ways. This band is the definition of metal! Absolutely love them, and its been lead by stunning females, which breaks stereotypes in metal (that its only for me). Arch enemy is MAGIC! This band must be in the top 3. With In This Moment and Otep
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 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.
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..
got that right if nightwish was metal this website would be a tv show
Evanescence is TOP! Really there not even close to Metal at best there cheesy love songs with guitar in the background
the fact that Nightwish is ahead of Arch Enemy in a metal category means something is wrong with the people voting.
This is true metal black metal is some of the most brutal metal out there how you put groups like this ahead of them I don't know but there not true metal Evanescence, Nightwish, Epica ther goth music people not metal
Get it right people
Arch Enemy is the best metal band. But Within temptation is the best female band, too bad it ain't metal.
Angry German Woman marching under Black Flag is a great live experience
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!
Swedish melodic death metal definitely the heaviest band on this lis Angela!
Archenemy is great band and in my opinion angela is a monster of metal
Angela is awesome blows johann and Alissa white gluz out of the water.
Cause they are the best, I like angela gossow
Seriously?! 6th place? They deserve to be in the first or second place.
Alissa can't hold a candle against Gossow. And Johann was great.
This is THE most metal band on this list! And I love Angela!
