Hardly anything has bothered the scene over the last years as much as the topic „Women and metal“! Does it really fit? But at the latest since Nightwish in 1996 warily put out their feelers to that direction and meanwhile fill whole stadiums with enthusiastic fans, one thing is clear: it fits and it works.
Of course several cloning attempts couldn´t be avoided. With the result that well-motivated but rather untalented singers dabble at the mic in dizzy heights to cause, even mixed, irreparable hearing loss for the listener.
But with this DVD/CD compilation you don´t have to fear that – whoever already equipped himself with earplugs „extra strong“ can return them to the store immediately.
Nuclear Blast has put together a nice treat for all fans of the genre and covers the complete spectrum of female metal and we are not only talking about „snow white-metal“ like Nightwish, Xandria and co.
Both CD and DVD present sounds ranging from melancholic, romantic (Epica, Leaves Eyes, Angelzoom), opulent, bombastic (Nightwish, After Forever) to rock, alternative (Die Happy, Exilia), morbid, brute (Tristania, Blutengel) and brutal (Arch Enemy); everything you could ever wish for.
In that formation the DVD clips alone have collector´s value and the accompanying CD make this exclusive jewelcase with all band introductions to a must-have for every metal collection!
A strong double decker with strong women! Both STALKER thumbs up!
