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."
"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."
"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."
