@ hoang
Yeah! I have to email Alex and ask him to come visit us here again.
Did you know he has new EP out?

Sorry for non topic.

no, there's no need to I guess.

everyone is free to post in a forum. If PHM feels so, he will on his own.

well PHM was never a female front metal band.. and I have to say only a few are really worth listening in my opinion...
He was not that much into the Gathering either (which I dont see as a metal band) but I saw him at a gig of them in Paris.. so well maybe not a fanatic but he gave it a try live ;)
He was above all indeed an anti fanboy stuff ;)

Fully seconded! "Contentum", "Terrestrials" and "Orgasm" feature probably the most original female vocals on a metal album so far. Lyrics, cover artwork and the music are also very special.

Madder Mortem - Perhaps a bit too heavy for your taste. Try the mp3s on their website to find out for yourself. Agnete M. Kirkevaag has definitely some of the most powerful female voices in metal.


Hi from here Burkhard :green:
I see you are spreading the word of Atrox and MM, great :D

I want to add to your lists:
Akphaezya (avant-garde progressive metal)
Pin-Up Went down (rock/indie/metal)
Diablo Swing Orchestra (classical/rock/metal)
Made out of Babies (experimental metal/post-hardcore)
Animal Alpha (rock/punk?)
Ram-Zet (schizo metal)
UneXpect (too many genres)
Stolen Babies (cabaret-ska-thrash rock)
Tourettes (death metal)
SerpentCult (doom metal/rock)
The Project Hate MCMXCIX (death/techno metal)

On occasions like these I always feel compelled to.

If my first posts in this thread hadn't been from 2006, I would have included them as well. "There Will Be Squabbles Ahead" is already getting close to 300 spins, and that's within just 20 months!

Stolen Babies aren't a metal band, though one might find some metal influences in their music. And they definitely aren't boring.

Quote:

I already mentioned several folk-influenced bands from Northern Europe in my first post on page one of this thread and I also recommended several pop-/folk-influenced albums in my post on page 2 of this thread. However, here is another list of definitely non-metal bands/artists (some of which I already mentioned in my previous posts). In most cases, I've included links either to their myspace-page or official website. You should also find videoclips of most of these artists on youtube.

Hedningarna (folk-rock from Sweden/Finland, their albums "kaksi!", "Trä" and "Karelia Visa" feature two Finnish female vocalists)
Garmarna (folk-rock from Sweden)
Gåte (folk-rock from Norway)
Två Fisk Och En Fläsk (medieval/folk from Sweden)
Qntal (medieval electronica?)
Helium Vola (similar to Qntal)
The Bulgarian Voices "Angelite" (formerly known as Le Mystère Des Voix Bulgares)
Suden Aika (a Finnish female vocal quartet)
Divahn (a quote from their official website: "Divahn infuses traditional songs with sophisticated harmonies and arrangements using tabla, cello, rabel, doumbek, violin and other acoustic instruments, plus vocals in Hebrew, Judeo-Spanish, Persian, Arabic, Aramaic and Turkish.
Their beautiful lyricism flows through an intense rhythmic drive. The group distinguishes itself as the only all-female ensemble performing Mizrakhi-influenced music (Jewish music from the Middle East and North Africa) in the US, and has performed with some of the world’s most renowned master musicians, including Glen Velez and Anindo Chatterjee.
Divahn, a word common to Hebrew, Persian, and Arabic, means a collection of songs or poetry. Through its music, Divahn seeks to underscore common ground shared between diverse Middle Eastern cultures and religions. The group captures the breadth and diversity of Mizrakhi and Sephardi music throughout the centuries, while simultaneously creating and redefining innovative directions for the music in the present.")

Female solo artists:
Kari Bremnes (Norwegian chansons; mixture of pop/rock/jazz)
Mari Boine (yoik-chanting with a mixture of rock/folk/jazz)
Ghalia Benali (I just quote a description from the CD-booklet of her first album "Wild Harissa" which she recorded with Timnaa: "Timnaa's music has many roots - classical Arab music from Jordania, Iran and, above all, Tunisia;...Andalusian guitar sounds and jubilant fiddling that transports the listener to another world...Virtuoso violins, Flamenco guitars and Arab percussion array her expressive, profoundly emotive and smokey voice from Tunisia to Andalusia, with excursions to the Balkans, Brazil and back to the Middle East.")
Natacha Atlas (Arabian pop?)
Parissa (classical Persian music)
Sima Bina (classical/traditional Persian music)
Mahsa Vahdat
Sainkho Namtchylak (impossible to label, thus avantgarde?)
