    Female Fronted Folk Metal

    Anybody know of any? I can't seem to find any in my searches...

    Coming...someday?
  • yeah, Cruachan are really great.

    Odroerir have often soft female vocals.

  • I believe there are some female voices in SuidAkrA... also, DeadLock but they aren't exactly folk-ish-

  • I haven't actually heard them yet but Arkona are tagged as Folk Metal, as are Nevid. Both are Russian bands, singing in Russian.

    Here is the website for Arkona - http://www.arkona-russia.com/en/. It turns out that there is a totally different Polish BM band wth the same name.

    Here is another one - Alkonost - also from Russia.

    Deadlock is absolutely amazing...folkish or not, their newest album is simply incredible. I would try those Russian bands, if I could type their names to search for...

    Battlelore, of course. One of my favorite bands.

  • My favorite folk metal bands (with non-extreme female voices) are
    Hyubris,
    Lumsk,
    Gåte.
    Аркона (including extreme female vocal) is mentioned above. Significant dose of metal can be found in the music by
    Nebelhexe
    Angizia.

    Silent Stream of Godless Elegy has both male and femal vocals. Their latest album is quite good.

  • Masha Scream is awesome!
