The Top Ten

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

This list is for female singers with the most powerful voice. That is why I vote for Floor. Her voice is out of this world, she has definitely made Nightwish a better band. I personally prefer Sharon Den Adel's voice but recognise Floor has a more powerful voice.

A classically trained soprano, she's got it all: classical and operatic singing, death growls, powerful belting, aggressive and raspy vocals, screaming. Go beat that. - Metal_Treasure

Easily the best voice in female fronted metal. Especially her time with After Forever.

2 Alissa White-Gluz - Arch Enemy, The Agonist Alissa White-Gluz - Arch Enemy, The Agonist Alissa White-Gluz is a Canadian vocalist, best known as the former lead vocalist and one of the founding members of the Canadian metal band, The Agonist, and current lead vocalist for the Swedish melodic death metal group, Arch Enemy.

That voice is definitely not female haha. She scares me. - Britgirl

She's by far the most talented singer in the history of metal bar none.

@Britgirl: haha, yes - she growls like a male. And yes, growls scare people, hehe. But why people watch horror movies?
One can't believe these growls come out of this incredibly beautiful and feminine creature. But Alissa can also sing "normally" and her clean voice is very good and pleasant. - Metal_Treasure

@Britgirl - I'm surprised you know who Alissa is and how she sounds! Are you a metalhead undercover, haha? - Metal_Treasure
