Female Metal Vocalists

I'm a self-confessed feminist kaya mas gusto ko nakikinig sa mga babaeng musikero. The world of metal music has been dominated by males over the years. Cliché or not, others think that males express their strong music presence through metal music. Eh ngayon, female singers growl and do the head bang like males singers do, minsan mas malupet pa (IMPO). Well, the following list may change that common thought and you may consider lending some ears to the hot chicks of metal music.

Here's my "Best 10 list", share nyo din ang sa inyo.

10. Jill Janus. This stunning lady is the vocalist of the American heavy metal band Huntress. She rocks the stage with husky and guttural vocals and the band’s classic style metal.

9. Maria "Masha Scream" Arkhipova. Masha Scream is the lead singer of Arkona, a Russian pagan metal band. Her deep, guttural growls can bring you to ancient realms and the Pagan world.

8. Julie Christmas. She is the lead vocalist of Brooklyn based band Made out of Babies. Her pain-filled vocals and beautifully bizarre childlike voice are awesome. Her emotive vocals gained her an edge over other metal female singers. Her previous bands are Battle of Mice and Spylacopa.

7. Maria "Tristessa" Kolokouri. She is the current vocalist of Astarte, an all-female black metal band from Athens, Greece. Maria’s harsh vocals earned her the spot as one of the top heavy metal performers in the US.

6. Laura Nichol- She is the former vocalist of the melodic death metal band Light This City. She screams like Gossow with those fierce and beautiful growls. She is now the vocalist of Heartsounds, and she continues to rock the stage with her growls.

5. Agnieszka Górecka. Also known as “Nera”, she is the lead singer of the Polish symphonic black metal band Darzamat. Her voice carries that eerie sound from underground.

4. Krysta Cameron. She used to be the lead vocalist of the deathcore band Iwrestledabearonce. Krysta has an awesome set of lungs that can deliver clean vocals and powerful growls. One of my favorite songs: her rendition on the Muse's Uprising. She left the band when she got pregnant and was replaced by the equally talented Courtney LaPlante.

3. Alissa White-Gluz. She is the Canadian singer of the melodic death metal band The Agonist. She performs with her sometimes- blue-and-sometimes-purple hair. Her clean melodic vocals, guttural voice and powerful growls earned her a spot as the most famous female artist in extreme music.

2. Otep Shamaya. This American singer-songwriter, actress, poet, writer, and painter is the lead vocalist of the nu metal band Otep. A take-no-prisoners kind or woman with the screaming skills so powerful it can “smash the control machine”.

1. Angela Gossow. She is the pretty German gal who replaced Johan Axelsson as lead vocalist of the former all-male Swedish melodic death metal band Arch Enemy. Angela Nathalie Gossow’s signature larynx-splitting growls produced the popular hits We Will Rise and Leader of the Rats. Her previous bands are Asmodina and Mistress.
