    Well, it would depend on genre, really. For symphonic/gothic, Within Temptation and Nightwish are pretty much tied in my opinion. Both have amazing vocals (especially the older Nightwish albums with Tarja). And the arrangements of both are absolutely beautiful.

    For metalcore, I love the bands Kittie, In This Moment, and The Fire Restart. Kittie is just amazing classic metal. I especially love their first two releases. In This Moment's first album was brilliant. Great vocals, amazing lyrics. The Fire Restart...just...amazing. I just wish they hadn't broken up.

    I thought. The Fire Restart were Post-Hardcore? Kind of like Eyes Set To Kill? Oh and haven't you heard of her new band Dana Tasker?

  • Band: The Agonist
    Why?: The brilliant growls, which are found on their new album, Lullabies for the Dormant Mind

    I'll leave the more classically sounding bands and concentrate on female growlers as that's what this group is about.

    Аркона - amazing Russian folk metal. Masha is an amazing vocalist who can switch from clean singing to some of the best growls i've ever heard.

    Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult - In my opinion the best black metal band ever. Onielar is just amazing.

    Adorior - Blackened death/thrash from the UK. Singer is just crazy!

    The best female metal band to me as of the moment is

    Cripper. One of the best Thrash bands I've heard so far. She does clean vocals, but what I think is unique about her is that she has a distinct voice. The only similar female to her I think is the girl from Orphan Hate. Otherwise, she's like 1 in a Million.

  • If you want good thrash go listen Holy Moses ;)

    My favorite band that has a frontwoman is Light This City.
    Why? Their music is amazing and the riffs make you jizz your pants!

    I get bored with frontwomans who sing clean & growl

    From us to sunset
    Best pigsqueals in whole deathcore. These guys are brillant!

  • Eths. Listening to Crucifère feels like your ear is having sadomasochistic sex with Candice, but it just feels good. The vocals are always in focus, contrary to many other metal bands where the vocals just blend in with the guitars and drums.

    I love guitar, it's the only way I can break a G-string while fingering a minor and not have to worry about going to jail.

    Agreed with the user above me. They're my favorite metal band with a female screamer, because if it wasn't for them, I wouldn't have ever listened to melodeath.

  • the agonist.
    alissa is just awesome, shout-wise as well as clean-wise.

  • Emerald Mind - russian power progressive band with classical female vocal! Hope you enjoy it! =)

  • Velcra, because no one beats Jessi Frey..
