Women of Doom

Doom is one of my favorite genres of metal. The main reason being is the sheer diversity it offers, not only in terms of sub genres but also vocally. Female vocalists are of course no exception and that is what I have decided to highlight with this list. The few criteria I have is that it has to be doom metal in one way or another and that there are female vocals on at least the majority of the album, i.e no "beauty and the beast"-style bands. Obviously this is by no means a complete list so feel free to suggest bands that might be missing.

1. 13 - Hollow / Bound
2. A Tree Of Signs - Salt
3. Acid King - Busse Woods
4. Alunah - White Hoarhound
5. Anagram To Anna - God, Me & Monsters
