Soaring Highs And Brutal Lows: The Voices Of Women In Metal is a documentary looking at the role of frontwomen in the metal scene, with a focus mainly on power, gothic and symphonic metal bands. Explore the energy and emotion of heavy metal through the stories and voices of some of the most prominent women who bring it to life. Follow the paths of these artists working to achieve their dreams, learn what drives them, and how their journeys have unfolded so far
It features interviews with Floor Jansen of Nightwish and ReVamp, Doro Pesch of Doro and Warlock, Simone Simons from Epica, Charlotte Wessels of Delain and The Gathering’s Anneke van Giersbergen.
Produced and directed by Mark Harwood, the film explores the experiences of female metal vocalists and combines interview, concert and archive footage. The Rising Moon Productions documentary is expected to be released later this year.
As a female metalhead, and a fan of a few of these bands, I think this could be quite interesting. This looks like a cool project and, if it’s as well-produced as some of the recent docos on metal (Banger Films productions in particular) I think it’ll be a very interesting addition to the old’ DVD library.
