Best Female Fronted Metal Bands


The Contenders: Page 5

81 My Ruin

Love love love her. She is a beast of a singer!

My god, no other woman has as much power and anger as tarrie does, lyrically and vocally.

They were an all female Nu Metal Band, but when Mick Murphy became their guitarist their Music changed to 80s Metal. I liked Tairrie B's ex-bands Manhole (Rap/Nu Metal) and Tura Satana (Nu Metal) better.

82 Battle Beast

I usually don't like female fronted bands, but their singer has a true powerful voice.

Beautiful and rough voice. One of the best I ever heard.

Check this band. True metal band with great songs. New singer Noora Louhimo is on of the best female METAL singers. No operatic but proper powerful METAL voice like Rob Halford.

83 Coronatus
84 Cry for Eden

Great musicianship all around and very strong female vocals! Cry for Eden's debut album release 'The 11th Hour' is a great start for the band and offers some wonderful female fronted symphonic metal that even at times borders on progressive metal. They have a free download of one of the songs of their album available on their facebook page - - Truth Beyond Reason. I first learned of Cry for Eden when I noticed a posting of theirs in the female fronted symphonic metal group on Facebook. I am now hooked!

This band composed and played inspirational music. I listen to their music over and over because their music doesn't hurt my ears. This is one of those bands that most people are going to like because of the quality of music, production, singer, and really good musicians who are part of the band. Keep rocking!

Cry for Eden is a progressive orchestral rock band hailing from Portland, OR. Cry for Eden's first debut concept album "The 11th Hour" centers around the theme contemplating the human condition in modern times and promoting positive values in life.

Just heard you guys on! Absolutely wonderful music all around!

85 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

86 For All This Bloodshed

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

87 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.

88 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

89 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!

92 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.

93 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.

94 Holy Moses

Sabina Classen is one of the best female 'growlers' in the world and Holy Moses are one of the best European metal bands ever.

95 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.

96 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!

97 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!

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 The Iron Maidens

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

Are you kidding? Read again. THE IRON MAIDENS. They are a tribute band.

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