    Welcome to Metal Maidens. We have done the work for you by locating thousands of free downloads, which are offered directly by their respective female metal artists and female metal fronted bands.

    A very special thanks is due to my friend Reiner, who is known on Last.fm as Kilgeshahn. He did most of the work in locating these great artists and bands. Please check out Reiner's new journal entitled: Free Downloads of Metal Bands from around the World.

  • Epica in Venlo

    29 May 2008, 09:07 by schmaecky

    Sun 25 May – Epica
    I was pleasantly surprised by the venue Perron 55 in Venlo, just next to the german border, where I grew up. Never heard of it til the Epica gig this month (which was sold out by the way).
    It's a nice little hall with just the right size to arouse a club feeling.

    I have to admit that we wilfully neglected the opener Seventh Sin, but from the outside they didn't sound too special. The sun and the fresh air outside were just too tempting.

    Epica started at around 20:30 and the already warm location soon became hot. Seeing Epica for the first time I didn't know what to expect but was impressed by the first minute.
    First of all the members are all very sympathetic, but they also know how to play their instruments and deliver a good performance.
    Of course Simone Simons is the highlight, no question, and she fulfilled all expectations blindfolded. After her rather long timeout due to her sickness she seemed to have gained new strength or at least was willing to give everything.

  • Female Fronted Metal bands

    9 Sep 2006, 07:27 by Anne13

    I've started this again! From now on, I will try to keep up with your recommendations :).
    I made a list of metal bands with a clean female lead-singer.What there may be:
    -female clean vocals
    -male growls
    -male clean vocals
    -female growls
    What there may not be:
    -mostly female growls (so the biggest part should be clean female vocals)
    Of course, not all bands may be considered metal. However, I will decide whether I think something belongs on this list or not. This list is meant for anyone interested in the genre and some bands may be interesting to them. Like, for example, The Birthday Massacre. They're not metal, but it is interesting to those into ffmetal.

    Searching for bands to start with?
    For those of you that want to explore new genres or kinds, I made some bands bold. Those bands are rather good to start with. Also, you might want to check out the following compilation cd's:
    -Great Female Power
    -Into Temptation (The best of gothic rock)
    -Gothic Melancholy
    -Gothic Spirits
