The best way to start the week is with new music! We’ve piled them up for your listening pleasure, the best tracks released the last few days in metal, gothic, electronic, punk, hardcore and every other related underground music with female vocals. There’s also a Spotify playlist from Vokills with those songs and will be updated each week.
Chevalier – The Greed of the Cross
Finland’s very own speed metal masters are exactly what heavy metal should be, straight to the point, raw and powerful. With Emma Grönqvist on vocals the dark medieval tunes from Chevalier got just that little extra what makes them stand out. The band is busy as besides this split 7″ with Legionnaire also demo Chapitre II has been released in February and April 2018 will see a new demo to be released.

Follow the Cipher – Valkyria
Interesting band, the self-titled debut album from this Swedish act can be expected in May via Nuclear Blast records. The album will be available as digipack among others and this digipack will include a bonus dvd. Follow the Cipher’s music is hard to describe, something like symphonic cinematic heavy metal comes close. The bands founder Ken Kängström also wrote some songs for Sabaton so you can put Follow the Cipher somewhere between Sabaton and Nightwish, yet creating something completely different and innovative.

Whyzdom – Armageddon
From France comes Whyzdom and they shall present in April their forth full-length album, released via Scarlet Records. Marie Mac Leod has been the lead vocalist since 2013 and As Time Turns to Dust is the second album from Whyzdom where she’s the lead vocalist. With a powerful voice that fits perfectly in the heavy symphonic metal from Whyzdom she sounds like a female who’s real heavy metal. Wouldn’t be surprised if you catch her headbanging on stage.

Temperance – Of Jupiter and Moons
Alessia Scolletti has taken over the female vocals part in Temperance from Chiara Tricarico who did the female vocals from the start of the band in 2013. A new voice in a band is always fun on internet, especially if you read the comments from fans. I didn’t know Temperance before so don’t know who has a better voice for Temperance. What I do know is that I really like this song, the use of male and female lead vocals and the use of male backing vocals makes the song stand out and truly symphonic. Of Jupiter and Moons will be out in April via Scarlet Records.
Order Of Jupiter and Moons HERE
Faun – Fire
A couple of years ago I saw Faun live at my hometown by accident, didn’t know the band but got hooked immediately on their Pagan / Celtic / Nordic folk. The XV – Best Of album has been released in February this year and the song Fire has been released in two languages, German and English. Faun released it in two versions because of it’s message, it talks about injustice in the world, unequal politics and the urge to change those grievances from time to time. Also it is a song about a strong feminine power in a world, that is still very much dominated by the patriarchate and the band wants that the whole world can hear it’s message.
