2Maria Brink (In This Moment)

I usually don't listen to female vocals, but seriously, she deserves this position - Ananya

3Angela Gossow (Arch Enemy)Angela Nathalie Gossow is a German vocalist, best known as the former lead vocalist for the Swedish melodic death metal band Arch Enemy.

Imagine every other singer on this list, lined-up. Angela will death growl, and all the others' heads will explode. - ThatStrangeKid42

She could punch me in the face and I'd be happy. - maiden8

I doubt any other do as good as what she did

4Otep Shamaya (Otep)
5Lacey Sturm (Flyleaf)
6Dominique Lenore Persi (Stolen Babies)
7Joan Jett (Blackhawks/The Runaways)
8Layla Brooklyn Allman (Picture Me Broken)
9Sharon Den Adel (Within Temptation)Sharon den Adel, Dutch singer and the vocalist of symphonic rock band Within Temptation. more.

Sharon den Adel has got to be number one. Her voice is so pure and melodic almost hypnotic. Amy Lee is just a poor imitation of Sharon.

Interesting list Emzii! Well, what about Sharon den Adel? She has clearly a beautiful voice and she is very hot!

10Floor Jansen (After Forever, Revamp, Nightwish)Floor Jansen is a Dutch singer-songwriter and vocal coach. She is currently vocalist of Nightwish and leader of Revamp.

Dynamic and inspiring! I had the honor of seeing her live almost two months ago. I can't recall being plastered with that much awe and elation at any other concert.

The Contenders

11Wendy O. Williams (Plasmatics)
12Simone Simons (Epica)Simone Johanna Maria Simons is a Dutch singer-songwriter. She is the lead vocalist of Dutch symphonic metal band Epica.

Definitely one of the best female metal vocalists of all times, she's got amazing, deep, breath-taking voice that you can just listen to over and over again.

13Sandra Nasić (Guano Apes)
14Lzzy Hale (Halestorm)

How is Lzzy not even in the top ten? She's a smokin' hot shredder with such powerful vocal range. Also dem legs.
