Best Female Fronted Metal Bands
« see full list
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
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.
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.
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 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 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 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..
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
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.
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.
Cause they are the best, I like angela gossow
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!
Angela is awesome blows johann and Alissa white gluz out of the water.
Seriously?! 6th place? They deserve to be in the first or second place.
This is THE most metal band on this list! And I love Angela!
This is heavy metal this should be number one..
Her voice must be a gift from the metal gods.
Angela IS the definition of metal. PERIOD.
