So SpectreNectar made a blog about some Canadian (if that stupid word filter is still on, then eskimo = "cana dian" and "that cold place" = "cana da") bands, and I'm now inspired to write a blog about music. Specifically, metal bands with female vocalists, who scream. I absolutely love it, and I thought I'd share a list.This is far from a "complete" list, but these are some good ones that I happen to have. I'm not a huge fan of girls just singing (or any metal with clean vocals, really), so it's a pretty small list. I'll list them first, and then give a sample of one of their songs. I won't really go into the history of the band or anything though. Lastly, I should clarify that half of these aren't really all that metal, but c'mon…It's a girl screaming…That makes up for the way the music is played.(Band - Singer)Arch Enemy - Angela GossowIwrestledabearonce - Krysta CameronOtep - Otep ShamayaCerebral Bore - Simone "Som" PlujimersCircle the Sky - AshKittie - Morgan LanderStraight Line Stitch - Alexis BrownThe Agonist - Alissa White-GluzWalls of Jericho - Candace KucsulainOrphan Hate - Sina NiklasHoly Moses - Sabina ClassenPicture me Broken - Layla Brooklyn AlmanEths - Candice ClotAstarte - Maria "Tristessa" KolokouriLight This City - Laura NicholCadaveria - Cadaveria (that's the name she goes by)cmkin29 - Kin LinArch EnemyWhen you think "female screaming", this is probably the first band you would think of. Definately the most commonly cited band for this sort of thing. Nemesis: IwrestledabearonceThe band has a sense of humour, but it's got a lot of clean vocals, and electronic stuff, which I'm not too fond of. It's definately one of those "not quite metal" bands, but it's still pretty good.You know that ain't them dogs' real voices: OtepOtep is one of the few nu metal bands that I really like (death to most nu metal! *shakes fist*). Her albums feature really heavy songs, some softer songs, and even some spoken word "poetry" (stories about murder and brutality, basically). About a third of her lyrics are really good too, talking about abuse and stuff. She has a really good vocal range to top it all off - throaty raspy screams, shrieks, growls, whispers, clean vocals…Fists Fall: Cerebral BoreThis is a pretty new band (well, they're actually almost 7 years old, but they only got the vocalist, and released their debute album, in 2011), featuring "Som" on vocals. She was around on youtube (her channel. You'll have to go back maybe 20 videos to get to her older stuff) doing awesome vocal covers of Dying Fetus and stuff before she joined the band. Most of the other bands I mentioned are on the cleaner side of metal, but Som is much more on the grind/death side of metal, with really deep and throaty (exhale?) screams, and even does pig squeals. And on top of it all, she was only 19 when she did the album (and was doing the youtube stuff before that). Speaking of youtube, there's another awesome youtube channel singer down below.The Bald Cadaver (she does some pig squeals from 1:23 and 1:29): Circle the SkySpeaking of young, Circle the Sky is an Australian band (a lot of good metalcore stuff comes from Australia too. Spectre was on a Canadian kick, or something…He should look at Australia next), with a 16 year old singer. "The band emerged in 2006, shocking crowds by the petite young lady producing brutal vocals". And they are pretty brutal.Shark Etiquette: KittieThis (all girl) Canadian band was probably the first band with a female screamer that I had ever heard. She's got a good scream (raspy), but sadly she does a lot of clean vocals, so I don't listen to them too much.Cut Throat: Straight Line StitchA female screamer is pretty rare, and a black one is even rarer! A little Asian girl is probably the rarest (further down)Black Veil: The AgonistAnother Canadian bandThank You Pain: Walls of JerichoA Trigger Full of Promises: Orphan HateWhen she's not doing her clean vocals, she has a really good, deep, growls.This Child (skip to 0:43 to start the screaming) Holy MosesAlright, so I've only been alive for about 2/3s or how long this band has been alive. It was one of the first German thrash metal bands, and definately one of the first female fronted metal bands.World Chaos (live): Picture me BrokenI found out today that one of their songs is on Rock Band (DLC). My RB drum set is destroyed, so when I either get my Rold drum kit setup to play Rockband, or I buy a new kit, I definately have to buy it. I'm going to put that video on here to remind myself to buy it. It doesn't really showcase her screams until after the break down (you can skip to 2:30, then she goes between clean vocals, and screams)Dearest (I'm So Sorry): EthsA French metal band. The Agonist is from Montreal (in the Canadian province of Quebec, which is French), but Eths is French vocals, from France, and it is absolutely awesome.Crucif´re AstarteAn all female black metal band. Pretty awesome, eh SpectreNectar?Black Mighty Gods Light This CityI only recently found this band, so I haven't had much time to listen to them, but I love them so far.The Unwelcome Savior CadaveriaThis is actually a pretty weak band to end on. Her "scream" is really more of a yell for the most part. This is also a band I just started listening to, and I haven't really found any songs that stand out yet in my casual listening to them. I'm not really a fan of Symphonic metal (there's never enough power and speed coming from the drums. T_T), and this band is just on the verge of being too symphonic for me.The Dream (skip to 2:15 for her "yelling") cmkin29Alright, this isn't a band, but if you head over to cmkin29's youtube channel, you can see this little Korean girl (I'm sure there's tons of Japanese girls who can do this too…'Cause Japan's weird like that) belting out covers from absolutely amazing singers/bands. From Lamb of God and Arch Enemy, to The Black Dahlia Murder and Job for a Cowboy.There's quite a few really good female vocalists on youtube, but I thought she was pretty cool.Cover of "Entombment of a Machine" by "Job For a Cowboy" And that's that. If there's other bands you know of, let me know, 'cause I love this. If you want more information, or other songs (or albums) to "get into" one of these bands, let me know.
