I got a good laugh out of this, just thought I'd share.

Thoughts?

Also, what are your favorite female-fronted metal bands? Personally, my list is pretty limited: obvious ones like Arch Enemy, Lacuna Coil, and also Luna Mortis. I'm on the lookout for stuff with more actual singing.
First person who suggests Otep or Kittie...loses my respect. That's about as harsh of a threat as I can give over the internet, haha.

Jex Thoth is pretty good. I religiously hate female singers in my metal/rock. It just... grates me. But every now and then I find a band with a female singer who makes me sit up and say, "Hey!" Arch Enemy are one of those, but honestly, you can't tell she's a female till you see her. And then, WOW can you tell she's a female! hahah :P

"Vivian Black: The Greatest Female In The History of Metal, Ever"

With that voice of hers, she's more like an atrocity against humanity.

And some others that I enjoy...

+ many more...

My vote goes to Doro, Maria (Drain STH) and Christina with a nod as wll to Karin from Collide (although Collide isn't metal). Great pipes and easy to look at.

Holy tits Collide is good.

Pretty much all of Drain were yummy. Musical poo-poo, but yummy.

Natsquatch: LOL! Anytime someone mentions a female vocal she's one of the first that comes to mind. A female version of Maynard if you will.

AP1: I rather enjoy Maria's vocal (incredibly sexy voice) and their harmonies. Tony is a lucky man.

Basically what SHREDDER said,

Holy Moses
Znowhite
Sentinel Beast

In particular, Sabina from Holy Moses is the most metal chick ever. Major respect to her.

I got into Holy Moses thanks to Shredder and Cynic, and I gotta say that Sabina is one of the best vocalists I've heard, male or female.
