A couple who have not yet been mentioned.
Johanna DePierre from long-defunct Amaran (Sweden). Their debut album was amazing!
And Cassie Aguilar from Phoenix-based Frequis. nailz clued me in to their existence a few years ago when he lived there.
yeah, Amaran was awesome. It's too bad that singer seems to have quit doing music
I like this new power metal band from NY, Flames of Fury. They've been opening for a lot of the touring Euro power metal acts.
Anneke Van Giersbergen is my favorite.
The two that instantly came to mind for me are Julie Kiss from the incredible band To-Mera and Nehl Aelin from a really oddball avant-garde metal band from France named Akphaezya. Oddly enough, I haven't seen much love for Nancy Sinatra in this thread.
Hands-down, Floor Jansen. She can switch between just about any vocal style used in metal, other than growls. IMO, there isn't a female metal vocalist alive today that can touch her as far as versatility AND skill goes. Though Nina from A Sound of Thunder comes damn close.
For individual styles I'd probably go with Veronica Freeman from Benedictum for the rockin' Dio-style vocals
Tarja (ex-Nightwish, current solo) for the operatic style
And Charlotte Wessels from Delain for the pop-style vocals
I don't have a favorite female growler because I'm not a fan of those kinds of vocals, so I have no basis for what "good" growls might sound like. I'll leave that to those that actually know anything about death growls.
Joan - You are from Chicago.
You should know who Znowhite are!!!!
Ha! But knowing your tastes you would not be a fan.
Umm, yes....this just happened. I'll just leave this here since no one else seems to be talking about it.
Floor and Tarja are great. Anneke has a particularly special and beautiful voice. I have not seen her mentioned here yet, but Amanda Somerville is pretty awesome too.
I agree with all of that, except for the bit where she can't do growls. Because she totally does on the new Revamp album, on the title track and others. So yeah, she is the absolute master of versatility within metal.
Floor Jansen. Without a doubt.
That's awesome! Also those slippers are 100% badass.
Maria Brink slays me too.
I’ll throw in Clementine Delauney now with Serenity.
For phones on, eyes closed rock, Lisa Fury on Karnataka’s “The Gathering Light” project.
Ok, a couple old-school one-offs:
Tina Turner duet with Byran Adams on ‘It’s Only Love’.
Yvonne Zuaro backing vocals on Brian Setzer's ‘The Knife Feels Like Justice’.
Ooh, almost forgot this gem :
District 97. I hope people had chance to catch their recent tour as backing band for John Wetton.
I was always a big fan of Nicole Bogner from Visions of Atlantis, sad that she passed away so young.
