Hi, I really like female voices but I do hate when they use Gothic style or soprano as Midnattsol, Nightwish and such bands.

I'm looking for beautiful "natural" female voices in metal as the one you can hear in Ayreon. It doesn't matter if it's not the main vocal but the more present is better.

No female shrieking nor growling.

If possible in these genres: power, speed, progressive, alternative, nothing "too heavy".

Thank you.

Does sludge/stoner count as "too heavy"? If so, there's a whole trend of femal fronted sludge/doom going on.
For instance Black Moth, True Widow, Subrosa and so on...

Also Julie Christmas, the best voice ever. =p

Female fronted power and progressive metal sound interesting. I've asked on the power metal thread long ago and they recommended me some old school power female fronted bands (and they probably will again on the comments below) but I remember the vocals sounding too forced, like the girl was trying to mime a male power metal voice, so it didn't really do for me and I ended up forgetting the bands names.
If you manage to find any prog/speed/power with natural female voice give me a shout, I'd like to hear that too. ^.^

Are you cool with thrash? There's a pretty bad ass female thrash trio from Brazil called Nervosa.

SubRosa are indeed a great rec, they're not sludge at all though!

Some recs I gave in other similar threads, mostly doom and the likes:

Check out Madder Mortem as well, solid band with awesome vocals like you're looking for.

Metantoine's Magickal Realm
Halberd (doom/death)

I'll post links later when I'm not on my phone, but the most obvious rec out there is Doro Pesch. I'm not familiar with her solo albums but her time in Warlock was some excellent early trad/speed metal. She basically sings her damn lungs out as hard as humanly possible before it just becomes shouting at the top of her lungs.

Sinergy is another rec I'd give, though admittedly I only know their last album, Suicide By My Side. Musically it's basically just Children of Bodom, which means hyperfast Nightwish songs with ludicrously self indulgent solos, except it has a woman singing (not in the operatic soprano style) instead of Alexi Laiho screaming YOW and FUCK every other word.

Chastain, and Crystal Viper are some traditional metal bands you should check out. Also Messiah Force is a great speed metal band that released only one album. There are some good thrash bands as well but they are more shrieking.
