81 For All This Bloodshed

Oh crazy heavy...good drummer...check them out on youtube...

82 Girlschool Girlschool Girlschool are a British heavy metal band that formed in the new wave of British heavy metal scene in 1978 and frequently associated with contemporaries Motörhead.

Whats wrong with the people! They should on the Top! Check out their new album and the song "Don't Mess Around".

Unbelievable. How can girlschool be so far down the list. True classic metal - sextysex

83 Deadlock Deadlock Deadlock is a German melodic death metal band from Schwarzenfeld, Bavaria, Germany. In 2010 they supported Lacuna Coil on tour.

Sabine has one of the best female vocals I have heard in metal

Probably the most beautiful band in the world.

Best metal band I have ever heard, hands down.

84 Crucified Barbara

Grate band with strong guitars and drums. Their two albums are amazing.

Why this band is stuck this far down the list is an... OUTRAGE! Just listen to their 2nd album Til Death Do Us Party ^^ you'll agree this is band belongs in the top 10

85 Beyond the Black Beyond the Black Beyond the Black is a German symphonic metal band from Mannheim originally consisting of Jennifer Haben (vocals), Nils Lesser (guitar), Christopher Hummels (guitar, vocals), Tobias Derer (drums), Erwin Schmidt (bass) and Michael Hauser (keyboard). As of August 2016, the members parted ways, with Haben more.

Absolutely awesome new band. Should be way way higher up the list. Definitely in the Top ten. They have a similar sound (in my opinion) to Within Temptation.

Best newcommer with great looks and great voice!

Beyond the Black got that good female voice. The songs make me want to sing. They deserve better than 94th place. It's maybe not my favourite band, but it's probably better than any of the other from place 11 to place 100. I just love that band and hope you will enjoy the music too!

86 Chastain

Leather Leone has one powerful voice, metal through and through!

One of the originators of female strength, voice and general kickass from 1984@!

Leather Leone has resurfaced with a new Chastain Cd. We are all
Thrilled to haave her talents back in the world! The title is
"Surrender to no one" don't go away again! @!

88 Onmyo-Za

What the hell is this doing down here!? People need to open their ears up. Great Japanese bands like onmyouza and liv moon have fantastic vocals. Hell, throw in matatabi with kuroneko and you get marco and tarja from nightwish. Their number 2 in my book, and if you give them a listen they should b in yours as well

Kuroneko is a great singer (as are the rest) and the band have created 11 masterful albums. Very consistent with great talent. Others may disagree but Onmyouza is my favourite. m/

Great guitar works, great melodic lines, great vocals of the two vocalist, solid drumer and bass and interessant concept.

89 Huntress

HUNTRESS HUNTRESS HUNTRESS! Definitely deserves to be higher up on that list.

Heavy Metal band with Jill Janus (Penelope Tuesdae) on vocals. Check out their new album "Spell Eater".

Like my two cats, Huntress like to kill something every day. Most of the bands on this list will satisfy your craving for a "different" voice (i.E. woman's), but these guys go way beyond that as a defining metal band of the new millennium.

90 Unsun

Amazing band. I can't believe they are at #76. Needs to be so much higher. Great vocals amazing music

Seriously underrated band. Great band with beautiful vocals and massive riffs!

Underrated brilliant band. Too low on the list. The foreign sounding vocals are just beautiful.

Unsun should be way farther up than this!

92 Crisis

Karyn can blow any chick on this list out of the water. No disrespect intended towards the other vocalists, but Karyn is the real deal.

What a pity they have split up! If you like Alternative Metal and angry female voices then be shure to check them out.

93 Dead Sara

I absolutely love this band and they should be MUCH higher than 88th place! The vocals on this girl are stunning! I would do anything to see them live and watch the way (i'm sure) they get a crowd going!

94 Cadaveria

A unique band composed of great musicians. It has so many different styles that only the label "Horror Metal" is appropriated to describe it.
Cadaveria herself is a talented singer, capable of great range from guttural growl to pure clean.
She's also an excellent songwriter, and the lyrics mirror her soul and also deal with art, death and magic.
A powerful introspective travel that makes the songs so communicative that they encourage people to undertake great things.
Those who don't know the band should listen to: Spell, Blood And Confusion, Anagram, Flowers in fire...

Cool band great voice mixing different singing styles. Dark atmospheres from death metal to gothic.

Just got cadaveria new album horror metal and I cannot stop listening to it. Good sound with great vocals.

Unique voice! One of the first girl in the metal scene since 90's. Aggressive and mysterious.

95 The Iron Maidens

Is this a joke or are people that retarded? They are a damn tribute band.

They melody music like iron maiden but they lead guitar and rhythm have their own skill, good singer,

98 Eluveitie Eluveitie

I like to call them a Celtic Heavy Metal band. Their drummer is wicked. They use Celtic elements constantly in their songs. And two female sings who know how to scream! Great stuff to get you through bad traffic.

Folk metal band with awesome female vocal. Must listen to!

Wouldn't of thought of this band as female fronted, but two female singers do sing with the band. Seen them live with Epica. They were absolutely brilliant. One of my favourite bands.

Should definitely be higher up on this list. Great celtic elements blended perfectly with melodic metal

99 Crystal Viper

Great metal band with metal clean singing, unlike most of these. Check this out if you like Iron Maiden, Iced Earth or the like.

100 Indica

I truly love these women. And yes I don't believe they should be listed as a metal band. But just the say their music is truly beautiful. Other that Think should be listed here is the band Leah which has over tones of Celtic music and European Symphonic metal & Raven Quinn whom has recorded her first album with George Lynch (Of Dokken & Lynch Mob)

Very Great Symphonic Metal Band from Finland, Indica are 5 Pretty Girls, very hot

Love this band particularly when they sing in Finnish but they are not metal in any way. They are very much pop/rock despite being on a metal label.

Romantic, symphonic and rock. Very different from any other band I ever heard.
