Heavy metal has long been the bastion of men, so what is it like being a female vocalist in this genre of music? The world has slowly seen the rise of female-fronted bands, making the industry more diverse. In this feature, top female vocalists like Floor Jansen, Simone Simons, Marcela Bovio, Alissa White-Gluz, Charlotte Wessels, the legendary Doro Pesch, Anneke van Giersbergen and Kobra Paige describe how they broke into heavy metal, their inspirations, their singing techniques, and the objectification they face and how they revel in solidarity in a still male-dominated industry.
