Top Female Vocalists @ RMR – First Edition!

RockmusicRaider - Female Vocalists 2019 - April

No, there will be no quota for anything on this blog. We’re not going down silly road. Nor will there be any single-minded preference towards female vocalists on the RockmusicRaider site, ever.

We will – however – cover whoever in the world of Folk, Metal or Rock piques our interest. And this regardless of where they come from or what they are, apart from some ideological caveats that would induce the terrible banhammer to strike.

RockmusicRaider Review - Myrkur - M - Album Cover You are a metal fan, right? That is why you are here.

Right?

So, have you ever tried to listen to Enya? Yes, the one of the surreal, kind of weird, ethereal melodies and soft tunes. Not metal at all, you know.

Now, mix three parts of Enya with a shot of Caladan Brood, together with 2 parts of Cradle of Filth on steroids (meaning: Dani Filth’s annoying screams amplified times five…). Then throw in three parts of Ulver and one psychedelic part of Suns of Thyme. And thus you get M, the latest and best of [...] Click to raid more!
