Female-fronted bands that you actually like

I typically convulse in violent dry heaving when I hear "another female fronted goth band", but there are a couple that I actually like.

I loved LC up to Comalies; that album is fantastic and I can scarcely believe that they actually did it, judging by the crap that followed. They were a great band.

Good people, though. Really nice and down to earth.

And who could forget Leaves by The Gathering? I can't believe I didn't post them. Anneke is amazing.

Fovea Hex, perhaps my favorite trilogy of albums by anyone ever.

Every time I watch that Gathering video it's like the first time. Anneke is probably the most beautiful woman in the history of frontwomen, with the best voice to boot. She exudes this uncharacteristic purity; this innocence and natural beauty that sadly has been forgotten in this genre.

She's also done amazing work with Danny Cavanagh. Parisienne Moonlight FTMFW.

Yes, the Gathering are awesome
To-Mere - Really dig them
Lacuna Coil - Not the latest though, total crap, don't know what happened. Everything about it sucks.

I still like new Lacuna Coil. The last album I heard was the one after Comalies. Very commercial, nu-metal sounding rock album with complete shit guitar riffs, but Christina's vocal lines were so emotional and memorable.

Good call on Malsain, var... Never thought a vagina-wielder could pull off some half-decent black metal vox. Good shit.

On account if it being Lucia Cifarelli, yes

I love Anneke-era Gathering, though I'm not sold on the new singer. I'll pass on all the female fronted "goth metal" nonsense a la Nightwish.

I have tremendous appreciation for Agenete Kirkevaag for her ability to sing ugly and unselfconscious when necessary to convey the emotion of the song.


Masha from Arkona is pretty awesome


Of course there are tons of non metal chick singers I dig. Top 3:

Yes sir Lord Foul, I really like the claustrophobic sound they have going. Forgot all about Arkona.

Mah-I'm sorry to hear that. I figured they'd released another one since then, I'll just skip right over it.

Draconian isn't a half-bad gothic doom metal band:

I agree with the first few posts, and with Draconian...another one that always goes under the radar is Amaran:





And highly surprised no one has mentioned Ram-Zet!





...or Unexpect:



And on the more caustic side, Made Out Of Babies' first album was great:
