I don’t know why I love Japanese female metal bands. But I do. I so do.
UPDATE: Apparently part of the fun of queueing up my Metal Tuesday posts is sometimes the video goes away prior to publishing. And, I can’t find it through normal means. If I can get an updated video link, I’ll update this post.
For those of you who follow Metal Tuesday, you know I have an affinity for female-fronted metal bands. So, when this article from AltPress showed up in my feed, I was suitably impressed.
- Metal is no longer a man’s world. All across the genre’s many subcategories, from folk to black metal, powerful female figures are putting their stamp on a genre that’s finally coming to terms with the inclusivity of the present day. Where symphonic icons Nightwish and Within Temptation blazed the trail for female leaders to step toward center stage, new blood such as SKYND and Ad Infinitum have taken the torch and run with it. *
My only quibble is that they didn’t include Charlotte from Delain.
