...And Ram-Zet.
Mentioned this band a couple of times already. Gotta listen to them ASAP, I'm intrigued!

EDIT: Ram-Zet kicks ass :o
Norway never ceases to amaze me with their bands :)


Yeah, it was one of those bands I fell in love with instantly. Never even heard of it before perusing associated bands of The Kovenant on the Metal Archives. I like how the guy sings with a raspy sort of growl, and his clean vocals sound woman-like. And Sfinx's voice goes perfectly with the music - no operatic or sugar-pop cliches.

They mix so many elements and influences so well, and it's very catchy, too! Even without reading the lyrics (my english sucks) I'm already singing many of their songs ;D

Hahaha yeah! In fact, the first time I listened to it I thought it was a woman on harsh vocals XD (and that only makes it more interesting!)

And Sfinx's voice goes perfectly with the music - no operatic or sugar-pop cliches.

Her "crazy" voice in "Addict" when she sings "Please, join the party in my nice little dungeon. I serve sweet toxic cookies and some blood from my friends" (very funny lyrics, btw hehe) or her high voice at the end of "To Ashes" are totally amazing. A unique singer indeed!

Thanks for mentioning this band, I've been listening to them a lot everyday since that post on this topic :D

EDIT: I have just realized that I haven't listened to any Tristania song for more than 10 days now! Ram-Zet has been covering all my "gothic", female, melodic or avant-garde metal needs all this time :o

I picked Tristania after a couple of minutes thinking. I LOVE Epica so much. I've been listening to it before Tristania, but it seems that Tristania is just too divine. Bands that got me into the female-fronted metal like Nightwish, WT, Lacuna Coil, are slowly fading. The transition was pretty much like WT at first. Then LC and Nightwish followed. I thought Nightwish was best of those. Then I got into Epica and now Tristania. These 2 are now the top for me. (I like some other FFM bands but these are my favorites.)

I voted Tristania, 'cause is my favourite, but I like WT, AF , Haggard (although this is not included and although it's not led by a women, but Veronika Kramheller is really great) and Nightwish (with Tarja) too  :)

My voice goes to Nightwish (with both Tarja & Anette), followed by Tristania, Epica, Within Temptation and Draconian.

Draconian.

Theatre of Tragedy were awesome (Velvet Darkness...), but I find Liv's vocals to be annoying at this point. It got better for Agis, but then the music got more dull.

For me, it's Within Temptation...
What can I say? It was the first metal band that I listened to and it was just love at first hearing! LOL

My top 5 is:
Within Temptation
Epica
Nightwish
Tristania
Sirenia

But it's Tristania with Mary ;)

Tristania. But with whomever at the mic, so no vote per the above poll.

I used to dig Nightwish. Some Sirenia too (mainly the 3rd album).

Tristania with Vibeke. Very close is After Forever, I had the immense luck of seeing them live before they disbanded and Floor Jansen's vocal range and versatility is very impressive.

I might add The Gathering to the list. I got their first 4 albums and there's great stuff there. I like the way their '95/'97 stuff is sounding, very meaty and convincing. That's not something you get too often these days.
