We’re celebrating the awesomeness that is metal chicks this week, so I’ve put together a quick little mixtape of some cool metal chicks.
Arch Enemy – Nemesis
One of the most prominent females in extreme metal, Angela Gossow growls as well as the boys.
Astarte – Mutter Astarte
Holy satan fuck! I haven’t heard any of the recent releases from Astarte (I own a couple of their earlier, black metal releases), but my, have these ladies matured! Loving this track from this Greek metal band’s Demonized release.
Gallhammer – World To be Ashes
I’ve loved these crazy Japanese chicks for many years now. Gallhammer have a really unique sound, influenced by black and doom, but – as many Japanese bands do – manage to somewhat defy classification.
Tormentress – Fuck the Police
Covering Sodom, this Singapore thrash outfit rip it up.
Here’s an original from Tormentress. This video cracks me up because of the muppets in the crowd. If this were a NZ gig you couldn’t move for people sailing over the foldbacks Wicked song, though.
Holy Moses – Too Drunk to Fuck
In my humble opinion, more chicks need to wear denim vests.
Putrefied Beauty – Purulent Stigmata
This Italian all-female brutal death outfit don’t fucking hold back.
Civet – Son of a Bitch
I’m going a bit punk rock with my non-metal tracks this week. A couple of kick-ass all-female punk bands I adore. From their Hell Hath No Fury album, click here to see the official video
Distillers – City of Angels
I adore Brody’s voice.
Epica – Quietus
An old one from Epica that really shows off Simone’s amazing voice (and her other … amazingness)
Opera IX – Born in the Grave
And lastly, more Greek black metal.
I am SWAMPED with work at the moment, and I’ve got a gig next week and it’s moy birthday on Friday, so forgive me if posting might be a little light this week. In the meantime, don’t forget to leave a comment on THIS POST to win a lifetime subscription to the Metal Queen’s ebook series.
Readers, more awesome female metal bands and musicians, please?
