Best Female Metal Singer


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Noora Louhimo

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.

What are all others? She is the only METAL singer.

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

22 Lzzy Hale (Halestorm)

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

23 Dianne van Giersbergen (Xandria) Dianne van Giersbergen (Xandria) Dianne van Giersbergen is a Dutch dramatic soprano singer, songwriter, and vocal coach who is well-known for being the frontwoman and founder of the progressive metal band Ex Libris and German symphonic metal band Xandria.

The simple fact that Dianne is not on number 1 shows that ranks in this list are just about who is best known and who is the most popular. If all these singers were judged by an independent professional jury who did not have any pre-knowledge of all the ladies, Dianne would always be number one.

She's the best live singer. And she knows her stuff too! She studied music and singing for 7 years and for her Masters wrote about the connection vocal-wise between metal and classical music.

It's rather impossible to see this name as number 61!

24 Nitte Valo

Superb power & pitch perfect while maintaining her unique own tone.

An amazing artist and a great frontwoman to her band Burning Point.

She is best known as the former lead singer of German symphonic metal band Xandria from late 2010, until late 2013.

Way too good to not have her considered a top-class voice. She could even match one of the top 5 singers on the top 10 list just by taking into consideration her talent.

29 Monika Pedersen

Just one record! yes, just one record (with Sirenia) and this femme fatal leave her thumbprint in the metal scene... amazing!

31 Lori Lewis (Therion) Lori Lewis (Therion) Lori Lewis is an American opera singer and soprano currently residing in Salem, Oregon graduate in the University of Kansas, she is a vocalist and official member of the Swedish symphonic metal band Therion.

Lori has the best voice of the classical trained singers. This voice fits the Therion music perfectly.

Lori is the best singer ever! Her live performance is flawless, I can�'t say the same from the other singers on the list.

33 Leather Leone (Chastain)

35 Maria Brink (In This Moment) Maria Brink (In This Moment)

Maria Brink is a fantastic vocalist, amazing live, brings a lot of energy to In This Moment's stage presence, and really gets the crowd going. Seeing her at Mayhem Fest in 2010 was possibly one of the best experiences I had throughout my teen years. She is a fantastic addition to the world of metal, and I expect In This Moment to be a name we will continue to see for many years to come.

I first heard Maria at Ozzfest and was completely blown away. In This Moment and Maria Brink should have been on the main stage instead of the second. They were better than any band that played on that second stage and better than Lordi which made the main stage. Complete travesty of Metal.

By far should be #1

I love this singer! ! the first time I heard her voice I was like...sounds like early No Doubt but a lot more fn powerful! :) Then I saw her video big bad wolf and I was instantly a fan! I'm going to buy all her Cd's.

37 Otep Shamaya (Otep)

Very few female vocalists can scream like her, be so angry or show their vulnerabilities through their music quite like Otep can. I'd actually say that her singing and writing is some of the most raw in almost all music, regardless of genre. It may not be for everyone, but the power and emotion in this ladies voice is very hard to ignore.

I love otep so much and otep shamaya is a really good singer. The songs are beautiful... Otep is an anagram of poet. Rise rebel resist is the best song, also perfectly flawed and confrontation. My favourite singer.

Can't believe she isn't higher on this list. The pure energy, raw emotion, and powerful themes encompassed in her music blow me away every time.

Can do some clean with some awesome screamo

38 Carmen Elise Espenaes (Midnattsol)
39 Nera (Darzamat)

The first 3 records of Darzamat... suck but Darzamat with "Nera" is another band, one band to hear with a good proposal and yes her voice is somehow enchanting...

Agnieszka Gorecka... I don't know why... but her voice in their solo albums neranature is... mesmerizing. Just give her a shot you will not be disappointed!
