I wonder who I'll name here. Tis a grand mystery when it comes to female led vocalist in bands that I worship...
Anette needs love from Nightwish. Imaginaerum was a flawless album. Can easily rival Once, which was the best work while Tarja was with the band.
Amaranthe def needs a plug in this thread. Friggin brilliant they are.
Epica. Simone Simons; good fucking lord.
Battlelore's female singer has a great voice and offers the same sort of dynamic that Amaranthe does. Only more in the "celtic" epic metal sense.
Real treat here are the hidden greats like Amanda Sommerville & Cloudy Yang. Work with Avantasia are a revelation. Voices are stellar. Symphony of Life track with Yang is godly.
