    I'll also throw some support behind Crimfall. As soon as I started listening to As the Path Unfolds I was blown away. Really amazing album especially from a group that I was previously unfamiliar with. A few other female-fronted bands I would recommend are Delain, Krypteria, Leaves' Eyes, Lunatica, Xandria, Elis, and Forever Slave.

    The only one that you listed that I wasn't already familiar with, but wanted to say thanks for recommending this one. I just checked out their myspace and really dig what I'm hearing. Definitely on the more gothic end of things so I was a little skeptical at first, but I really like the heavier, crunchier vibe that is underlying in their music. :headbang:

    I like the more upbeat folky elements used in this. A lot of the female fronted folk metal out there tend to keep it more subdued. I also like the use of the female vocal chanting at the beginning of their one song. Very nice!

    I was huge fan of older Theatre of Tragedy...
    I like Epica, Within Tempation, After Forever, To-Mera and of course Arch Enemy, but that's whole different thang!\m/(><)\m/

    I'm not sure if this is going off-topic (since the following clips are not metal), but since you said you liked the female vocal chanting at the beginning of one song (I think you refer to the first one on the myspace-page), maybe you'd like one (or more) of the following songs from a Swedish-Finnish folk rock band:

    Yeah I'm with you on Leather, but how about Kate French (Chastain & Vain Glory) talk about eye candy. But with serious vocal ability.

    And from the late 80's and early 90's Arsenal, Christine Steele was an amazing vocalist. But, they were Christian Metal. And she was much better live than recorded.

    I don't know if they've been mentioned yet, but "Suicide By My Side" by Sinergy is a disc I've been spinning a lot lately. When I first heard Kimberly sing, I was shocked she was female lol because of her aggression and intensity.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I checked out all of the first video and about half of the second two. While I found some of the melodies interesting (was that a sitar I heard in the one?) and some of the chanting enjoyable, overall it didn't really do anything for me.
    Sinergy is awesome! :headbang: It's too bad they are pretty inactive at this point.

    I'm glad I was able to help you find a new band. I was looking through my itunes and came up with a few other female-fronted bands that I didn't see listed. Elis , Nemesea , Magica , Mortal Love

    Lumsk (Not quite metal, but I love her voice and the video has a trombone solo)




    Deadlock (On almost all the other songs there are male screams/growls with intermittent clean female vocals)

    As the huge Gathering geek that I am, I am refreshing their myspace and website every 2 minutes.... They will officially announce the new singer (although we are almost sure who she is) and post some news songs tonight! :)
