Top Ten Metal Sub-Genres that Usually Have Male Vocals


The Top Ten

1 Thrash Metal Thrash Metal Thrash metal is an extreme subgenre of heavy metal music characterized by its fast tempo and overall aggression. The songs usually use fast percussive beats and low-register guitar riffs, overlaid with shredding-style lead work.The genre evolved in the early 1980s from combining the fast drum beats more.

Good list. And yes, while metal genres like symphonic metal or Gothic Metal have female vocals but most of these genres have male vocals. - zxm

I know about 10 all-female thrash metal bands but they aren't very popular. Also, there are several bands with both males and females. - Metal_Treasure

One band I think has a female vocalist - Lucretia

2 Brutal Death Metal

Never heard of a female brutal death vocalist, and daught one exists. - Lucretia

3 Death Metal

I know it says usually, bit I'm going to just let it be known that the band Abnormality has a female vocalist. The elephant will have to go unnoticed for now.

4 Black Metal

Never heard of black metal... even symphonic black metal, with female vocals. - Lucretia

True...I know only one Band with female vocals - Astarte, Which is the first all female black metal band...The female singer died of cancer in her 30s... - Ananya

5 Blackened Death Metal

Makes me imagine Behemoth and similar bands... - Lucretia

6 Speed Metal

I can't recall any speed metal song sung by a female while in thrash and death metal there are females (though it's not typical).
Speed Metal is an awesome subgenre. - Metal_Treasure

7 Power Metal

Well the band "Battle Beast" has female vocals, and is mostly power metal

It would be interesting to see this with a female vocalist though, - Lucretia

8 Classic Heavy Metal

Normally it has male vocals. The bigger bands anyways - Lucretia

9 Technical Death Metal
10 Technical Thrash Metal

The Contenders

11 Groove Metal

Never heard of this one, either, I always see male vocals. - Lucretia

12 Folk Metal Folk Metal Folk metal is a fusion genre of heavy metal music and traditional folk music that developed in Europe during the 1990s.

I have noticed some folk metal songs are sung by two singers. Usually female singers do the clean vocals and male singers do the harsh vocals/growling. - zxm

But the first artist that comes to my mind is Eluveitie. - Undistinguished
