Women of Doom


I love doom metal in all its forms and I also happen to like a lot of female-fronted metal. Combined, these two elements can potentially result in great music and therefore I decided to create this list. The only criteria I have is that there has to be female vocals on at least the majority of the album so no "beauty and the beast"-style bands.

Enjoy!

Why didn't you list the actual "women of doom" (added the names of the vocalists to the albums)?

Pretty complete and thorough list.

Mares of Thrace are the only band I can think of that aren't here. There a a few others but I'm guessing they've been omited for not being quite metal or doom, like Jess and the Ancient Ones, Ides of Gemini, Christian Mistress and the like.

But Jex Thoth is on there so he might as well add those others as well

I spotted that too. I'm assuming he might be going by MA submissions if they're here and the other doom/metal-lite bands are not.

Christian Mistress is on MA, Idea Of Gemini and Jess And The Ancient Ones weirdly enough aren't yet Jex Thoth is also on it. Once again MA baffles with its ruling as to what bands are acceptable and what bands aren't

Unlike the bands Joe mentioned, I do consider Jex Thoth's music "doomy" enough to warrant a spot on the list and they are actually tagged as such on both MA and MS.

At least the majority of vocals have to be female in order for an album to be on the list. Nox Aurea have too much harsh male vocals.

I find them difficult to categorize but I would still say that they are both drone and sludge hybrids to a varying degree. Monarch's first few albums are more drone focused compared to the last two for example.

Much appreciated! As you can see, there is no shortage of female fronted doom in all of its subgenres so I hope you discover something you like.
