Quote by Born A Fool
As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

Yasuko Onuki, vocalist from japanese noise rock band Melt Banana has more balls than any male metal singer I know.

Leilindel from UneXpect and Nehl Aelin of Akphaezya do it for me (even though Akphaezya's more rock/fusion than metal. Meh!).

Akphaezya - Reflections

I'm more into singing and quirkiness than growls nowadays And to be honest, I'm starting to prefer female vox over male vocals by a longshot.

To the comment about it being a hit or a miss - same as anything. There is good and there is bad, but in the end it's all subjective - I'd say most people wouldn't like Akphaezya too much, but I love her voice throughout their discography. It's all preference.

Haha, cheers! I'm really digging experimental and avant-garde music at the moment, so these two bands are doing wonders for me

I'd say after a few listens of them though, that's when the real appreciation starts - all the awkward and quirky things become the most appealing, at least for me.
If you like Akphaezya, maybe check out the rest of the Anthology II album? Chrysalis (which is incredible!) has some jazzier sections, and The Golden Vortex of Kaltaz is much more driving, and heavier. The vocalist also has her own myspace (much more poppy), and some videos are uploaded of a couple covers, as well as some audio of originals. Check it out!

Alright, so they have just as much potential as male singers? Sounds good but what do you think about girls singing Thrash Metal? like Slayer, Exodus, Metallica, Megadeth

I personally think it would be great to hear a female voice and timbre in that sort of music, as a break from the norm, and something genuinely different and experimental.

Regardless of whether her voice would sound ''rough'' or ''jagged'' - as in most famed thrash - it would be really cool to hear a female timbre; and rather, to hear anything that strays away from standard structures and guidelines. But I guess I'm just really into that sort of stuff It's all preference, and I'm sure there will be some significantly contrasting views posted.

It's not about gender 'potential' or something man, a girl can do the same screams and growls that a guy can (Assuming they're an alto or lower).

Well I think if the girls' voice is good then idc but I have yet to hear a female metal vocalist that I liked so in general I don't think their very good. Unless they have such an unnatural voice that they sound like a man (I mean really like a man not just a low voice) I don't really get that same feeling. You know the feeling you get when your just listening to music on your ipod or something and you just feel the need to headbang but then you realize your at work and people would like at you funny.

I was going to inquire about this anyway, so hopefully this little act of necromancy will be a better alternative to making a new thread. Do you guys know of any power metal bands with female vocalists? I'm not talking about Nightwish style power metal, I mean the likes of Gamma Ray, Hammerfall, Dragonforce, etc. If not, how do you think that would work out? My band has been debating trying a sound like that.

I've never heard of a "true" power metal band with a female vocalist, but that's probably because power metal vocalists usually use enough falsetto to sound like girls anyways.

Tarja Turunen is one of the best examples of female metal vocalists.

What does being spoiled have to do with it? She's spoiled because she does harsh vocals?

Just audition a female singer. If it sounds good, cool. If not, then go with someone else.
