Top 10 Female Metal Singers With the Most Powerful Voices
The Top Ten
Floor is my all time favorite singer in all genres of music. Her skills and hard work are finally paying off. No words describe her potential.
Floor Jansen has been moulding her vocal range while in Nightwish. Now, the world knows her range better. She has become the widest range vocalist of Nightwish, she has haunting operatic, pop, rock, metal scream, and, I have just found out she can, aggressive growl voice. For those not familiar with Floor's vocal range, do check YouTube for these 2 Nightwish's songs: Ghost Love Score (Live) and Yours is an Empty Hope (Live). I may not understand vocal techniques, but it seems Tuomas Holopainen has expanded Nightwish performance based on how Floor can sing.
Note: Ghost Love Score previously sang as duet song, with Floor it becomes a solo performance showcasing how dynamic her vocal style changing in each part of the song section. And Your is an Empty Hope has solidified as an Anthem song for Floor to showcase her range in a single short song (for Nightwish).
Floor Jansen, the most powerful female vocalist with great control, great technic, great performer, great song's interpreter and storyteller, and the most versatile female singer in nowdays.
She brings the songs to life! When I hear her it goes right to my heart...
"I felt I had to make this statement in support of Alissa. In my oppinion, well the truth is I have honestly NEVER HEARD AS POWERFUL A VOICE AS HER'S BEFORE IN MY LIFE EVER! Especially that of a female! Now, may I clarify here. I am not by any stretch what I would consider a hard core Arch Enemy fan. However I do think The Eagle Flies Alone is AWESOME! And I further must say that Alissa's voice, while exceptionally strong and powerful is actually one of many female -fronted metal voices I currently favor. In any case I admire Alissa and TOTALLY RESPECT Arch Enemy as a truly awesome band! Thank you! "
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
Popularized operatic vocals when the style was just starting. After so many years, her name still is called.
Floor is great but Tarja was better!
Sharon has the voice of an Angel.
Beautiful voice and great technique.
Her guturals are outstanding, deeper and more powerful than more famous candidates.
I guess she has the best vocal range that we have ever heard. She growls better that most men, and her singing voice is just perfect. Jinjer has a bright future ahead. Many saw Jinjer touring with Arch Enemy, and believe me...many told that they and her were better live.
Powerful vocals, great versatility.
Such a powerful voice that make you want to scream too.
RIP Jill Janus. A powerhouse whose voice will never be forgotten
Marcela should be more recognized, she is a really talented, hardworking singer. She masters her voice in several styles. Her performances are always spotless.
Melodic yet powerful. Anneke is an icon of female vocalists. A pioneer.
Really versatile singer.
She is NOT metal, guys. - Metal_Treasure
