Best Female Metal Singertruemetal
The Top Ten
Floor Jansen has the best technique and the most versatility out of any female metal vocalist. This woman exudes metal. She is not only the best female vocalist in the genre, but one of the best voices in metal as well.
Since After Forever disbanded, she's been working with her project "Revamp". Both bands are worth checking out alone for Floor's voice. At the time of writing there is also a very high possibility that she will become the third lead singer for Nightwish, and I very much hope that this happens. She deserves to be recognized by a wider audience because she is so fantastic at what she does.
Floor Jansen is a brilliant combination of high technology and emotion in her voice. Stunning clean vocals, a beautiful operatic voice, ominous scream and crystal gentle ballad performance!
Anything that is not that gothic melodic screamo blacken everything dead dull hott topic crap... Unfortunately that is exactly what is taking over and people will not know what (heavy) metal really is. RIP, real heavy metal. We will not forget you though the drone zombie majority will never know you. RIP Femme Fetale, Doro Pesch of Warlock, Vixen, and many more. Great years now gone, and good things never last. The black drone cloud crowd is here taking over like a world zombie apocalypse. There are good female metal voices out there, but I have also made my point. Own the road, all ye true heavy metal bitches; raise your heavy metal horns and yell freedom! Rroo...
Both powerful and sensible... the perfect mix for Nightwish, and in my opinion, one of the best rock / metal vocalist, men and females.V 34 Comments
Tarja is the best singer that Nightwish has ever had
And now, her solo cR.Is also very successful
She was the first to mix metal and opera
Tarja got this wonderful voice, and the perfect additude on stage. She is very beautiful and got nice dresses on stage. Rock On Tarja :-)
Her albums are so wonderful and inspiring... Nightwish had the greatest time with Tarja and you can see that, that energy and love they created between each other... Especially on "From Wishes To Eternity". The best singer ever! I am so glad I've seen her live. So beautiful and passionate! I have to mention "Oasis" as maybe her most passionate song...
Angels Voice!V 30 Comments
VOICE OF AN ANGEL AND A DEMON AT THE SAME TIME... AND ALL THAT WITHOUT ANY MUSIC CLASSES; JUST PURE NATURAL TALENT! NOT LIKE SOME-SO CALLED SINGERS- WHO NEED CLASSES ALL THE TIME, AND SOUND THOUSAND TIMES WORSE! AND YOU KNOW WHY IS THAT? BECAUSE TECHNIQUE doesn't MATTER-ONLY HEART AND SOUL. YOU HAVE TO FEEL THE SONG, NOT JUST TO TAKE STUPID CLASSES, AND THINK THAT YOU ARE PRINCESS OR SOMETHING! NOT TO MENTION THAT SHE IS WRITING SONGS AND MUSIC FROM THE BEGINNING, TAKING CARE ABOUT SCENERY, COSTUMES, NEVER COMPLAINING ABOUT TRAVELING AND TOURING ANT by the way-HAVING THREE KIDS BESIDES EVERYTHING! SHE IS A DRAGON NOT A WOMAN! AND SHE IS SO UNDERRATED!
Best growling- Otep Shamaya (Otep)
Best opera metal- Lory Lewis (Therion)
Best new age metal- Amy Lee (Evanescence)
The most melodic and touching voice ever, who can sing whatever you want, even without any singing classes- SHARON DEN ADEL!
She is very underrated singer only because she doesn't pay a journalists to call her "a Goddess", like some other singers do (like Tarja Turunen, whos husband pays every interview and headlines with such a ridiculous title, to make you feel like that there is nobody else who sings even better! )I just hope that the voting is going to be fair once for all, and that the REALLY THE BEST is going to win!
-one of the first and the best female vocals in metal music
-pioneer of the Gothic/symphonic metal
-role model for all other female frontwomen who started to dress like her (tarja)
-writer of all songs from the first album
-naturally talented without music school and singing classes
-some of them are just beautiful, some are just talented, but SHARON HAS IT ALL...!
I am torn between Sharon & Floor. Floor has s more powerful voice but I prefer listening to Sharon.V 21 Comments
Not only one of the hottest, but also one of the greatest voices in female-fronted bands, or any genre of female singing for that matter. Listen to 'Tides of Time', it's a beautiful ballad which brings out the best in Simone's vocals. - petrucci75hammet
Her range soars octaves above Tarja's. Her voice is also very versatile, stretching from operatic to lower, dark pitches.
Her voice will make you fall in love with her.
Simones versatlity and powerful ooperatic voice just never cases to impress me.V 5 Comments
DORO SHOULD BE THE FIRST! SHE IS THE TRUE QUEEN OF FEMALE FRONTED METAL BANDS- BECAUSE SHE IS THE PIONEER OF IT!
A LOT OF OTHERS ARE JUST PATHETIC COPYCATS AND "WANNA BE DANGEROUS CHICK" BITCHES! THEY ARE NOT IN A METAL WORLD BECAUSE THEY LOVE IT, BUT BECAUSE THEY SMELL THAT IT BRINGS MONEY AND FAME; LIKE TARJA TURUNEN (SHE don't LISTEN TO METAL, SHE don't HAVE A METAL VOICE, SHE don't DRESS LIKE LIKE METALHEAD - BUT SHE IS CONSTANTLY PUTTING HER ASS INTO THAT WORLD TO GRAB SOME MONEY FROM IT! )
Saw her in concert for the first time this year and she gave so much energy. You can tell she loves what she does. Doro is the best.
Why isn't Doro number one is beyond me! The true pioneer in women in metal
The only metal queen! Bulgaria loves Doro!V 16 Comments
I love Anette because she is a great singer and a down-to-earth person. We don't need other divas like Turunen, and Imaginaerum is a perfect album. She's the perfect singer for Nightwish, and I can't wait to hear what she'll be able to do in the future
I love both Tarja and Anette for Nightwish. I'm voting for Anette because she is potentially more moving than Tarja.
Anette is so beautiful person with very amazing voice.
The gods hear me! this pathetic joke of singer is musically dead... in five years nobody will remember her... the biggest mistake of nightwish!V 2 Comments
Best female metal singer in the history of ever!
EXTREMELY beautiful and talented
Who said death metal is just for men?
HELL YEAH!V 1 Comment
Heidi really does have a beautiful voice. I really like sopranos, but here, especially. I don't think anyone really compares. - djh101
An angelic operatic voice, for me the best full soprano singer in metal/rock scene nowadays
One of the bests! In my opinion should be in 4rd
Not many singers like her in the world are like her. You can tell her voice from other women in a heart beat.
She has an amazing voice along with her stunning looks
Beautiful. Angelic voice. Lovely. Normal person, not diva. Good lyricist.
Beautiful. Always smiling. Lovely. Talented. Intelligent.V 9 Comments
By far the best she growls better than many men
The power of her voice has not equal
The best female vocal fry
Angela is a goddess of METAL!V 3 Comments
She is the youngest on this list at just 16, But she's also the best. This young lady from Japan has the pure beautiful voice of an angel. An angel of Death.
If you see her stage, you will know she is already star in this field even though she just come out.
Wonderful girl from Japan incredible!
Best vocalist ever.V 7 Comments
She has the most unique, touching voice in the world. I can cry because f her singing, there is no other singer who do the same with me. Shame that not so many people love her
I have many years hearing metal, bands go in and bands go out. Many femme singers, beautiful voices but no one as Vibeke... powerful as soprano, melancholic expression and her voice print a very special color in each song of Tristania... Why you leave us Vibeke? No one like you, bless you for your emotional legacy!
She has an incredible voice, angelic and hypnotic, full of emotions. Besides, she has a unnbeatable singing technique.
She is one of the few women of metal genre that has a voice that sounds just as beautiful in studio and live.
She is the queen, tarja floor, simone are really amazing, no dobut, but is something about vibeke that makes her the most beautiful and touching soul singer, unique and simple the best,
Amy Lee can't cut it live her voice is too weak.
Her voice is great. But she doesn't sing metal. Learn this already. - Metal_Treasure
Amazing voice... listen to Lithium
Nice voice but stills a "popper"V 4 Comments
The most touching voice in metalV 2 Comments
She's an amazing singer, she has a special voice. When I heard her for first, I was amazed. Two words: Angelic voice.
Because she's a lovely green-eyed brunette who has a great body that I'd like to spend an hour with. Oh, she can sing?
Best voice ever, powerful and high at the same time... She is THE Metal Queen! Amazing girl.
Her pure powerful voice mixed with the roughness of the rest of the band touches my soul.V 6 Comments
A fistful of emotions in a pristine and melancholic voice...
Should be number 1 in my opinion, the most beautiful angelic voice I have ever heard, a shame she left Draconian, but she'll always be my number 1.
Very dramatic, angelic and versatile voice. She should actually be part of the top list.
Akane Liv is an absolutely incredible soprano vocalist, who is also very versatile and isn't just constrained to the operatic side. She is a very passionate singer with excellent control and tone, I'd easily put her up there with the greats of Symphonic Metal like Tarja or Floor
Her voice is pure power! To me Noora is the best female METAL singer out there! Just listen to "Kingdom" "Black Ninja" or "Out of Control" the list goes on and on. She has such an unique timber and the edginess of her voice just has blown me away, she can also pull off jazzy and pop mellow vocals which shows her versatility is outstanding.
Best vocal here.
Do yourself a favor and listen Battle Beast's self titled album. Great new METAL band and awesome front woman Noora Louhimo true METAL singer. ImI (>_<) ImI
Here range between a beautiful Amy Lee tone as shown in "Break In" to her sexy raspy voice as shown in "Mz. Hyde" makes her in my opinion the best female rock/metal vocalists. And her stunning good looks just puts the sugar on top!
Great but she isn't a metal singer. Halestorm isn't a metal band. Even her vocal style isn't metal - her style is hard rock with some punk-ish vibe. - Metal_Treasure
Superb power & pitch perfect while maintaining her unique own tone.
An amazing artist and a great frontwoman to her band Burning Point.V 3 Comments
