Best Female Fronted Metal Bands

Alexandra Shevelyok "xeternalreveriex"
The list author says: "Just a list of some of the great metal bands with female lead singers. Naturally a lot of them will be symphonic-related since it seems to be the most popular female fronted metal genre, but some may be surprising."

"Simone has one of the most beautiful classical voices I've heard. Very rich, skilled symphonic metal."
Mother Earth

"One of the older Within Temptation albums. Symphonic metal with gothic undertones. Their newest albums are a bit more poppy in sound, but still maintain their more symphonic style. Sharon's soprano range is very impressive."

"I think most people who are familiar with symphonic metal at least a little bit, know Nightwish. Many older fans have a hard time getting over the parting of the old lead singer, Tarja, but in my opinion Anette is much more full of live, and may not have the same classical/operatic voice Tarja has, but I think she is a good singer with her own style and I enjoyed this very catchy album."

"Sultry vocals by Mezzo-soprano Cristina Scabbia. Very good gothic metal."
Widow's Weeds

"Tristania is a gothic and symphonic metal band. Their original lead singer Vibeke has been replaced by Mariangela, but you choose who your favorite is. Very beautiful solemn music."

Thy Kingdom Gone
Thy Kingdom Gone
"A gothic metal band with deep vocals that's worth a listen. Melancholy but beautiful."
Embrace the Storm
Embrace the Storm
"A beautifully constructed progressive metal band with symphonic influences. Marcela Bovio is one of the founding members, vocalist, lyricist, and violinist of this group. I found this band to be very refreshing and creative."
Mandylion
Mandylion
"A very different sort of metal band with roots in progressive metal, but tends to blend very different styles together. Each song is an individual masterpiece."

Velvet Darkness They Fear

"A gothic metal band turned electro industrial is how I'd put it. Liv Kristine's first band. Unfortunately they have disbanded, but their wide array of music still remains."

Anthology II

Salome - The Seventh Veil (Bonus Track)
Salome - The Seventh Veil (Bonus Track)
"This bands tends to add more ethnic mystical sounds to their symphonic metal, sometimes it makes for a very beautiful tune and sometimes only lukewarm effect. Decide for yourself."
Slania

"Both part male and female lead vocalized celtic folk metal band. Good for the folk metal lover in you. Some very catchy songs."
Uber Alles
