No, NOT like Arch Enemy because Acrostichon plays DEATH metal. And Arch Enemy only have some very slight death metal influences.

Then:
Sinister
with Rachel on vocals, also much better growls than Angela

and
currently:
Infinited Hate
also with Rachel on vocals.


I'm interested in these bands. Do they have websites or anything similar to that?

Like others, I'm surprised to see the Gathering's omission. I so I choose them, regarding their old stuff. The singer that they had on Always is better than Anneke, IMO. I love the gothic/doom vibes from that album and the coupling of male and female vocals sounds rather thoughtful. The guitars are excellently atmospheric too.

Although Within Temptation has become pretty mainstraim and a little to commercial to my likening....i would choose for them because they were the first female metal fronted band that really took my attention. Their first albums are the best. You really have to hear "Enter" and "Mother Earth". Real masterpieces! Also they are live good.

After Forever is nice but has become a bit thin through the years in their music in my humble opinion.
Epica has some nice songs but are not special....just "one of those bands".

I prefer After Forever most from above mentioned bands. Their music sounds better, especially the last album is very good. Also the female vocal is great and pure (like it must be )...

AFTER FOREVER!!

It's a tough choice between them and Epica because I love the music of both bands. In the end it comes to the front woman and Floor owns every female singer in the planet in that catagory.

My vote goes to Epica. They are probably the only Gothic/Female fronted band I like.

WT by far.

And I'd say that Epica is much more symphonic than gothic metal.

thanks, I will some time

btw: I think the term "female fronted" sucks, it says the female singer is more important than the band. just like it is in the pop industry
a lot of these gothic rock bands sure do look like any other band involved by the pop industry

If Mark were still in After Forever, I'd vote them.. Kidding, I vote Epica for more than just that reason.. Simone is outstanding

When this topic page was loading I was wondering that Gathering would be the leading band in the poll. But anyone even didn't talk about them. Anyway I like Anneke Van Giersbergen's vocals, and I'd pick her for my top female vocalists, not only in the Netherlands, but worldwide! So I'd say Gathering (Van Giersbergen era), no idea about the new vocalist..

From those choices, Epica has my vote... although After Forever is amazing also. It's a shame that they disbanded
