Hail the mighty Bolt Thrower, and hail Jo Bench!!!
Came in here with Jo in mind. She's the only girl I really care for in metal. I guess Angela is ok too, and Simone Simmons ().

No shit! I'd never heard of them before - nice fuckin' call. She's a rager, that's for sure. Gotta check me out some Holy Moses...

Jesus fucking Christ, yes. She basically has no place in this thread (I'm pretty familiar with the wuss-core that is Epica), but gawd DAMN is she hot. Prolly hotter than Cristina.

BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT THIS THREAD IS ABOUT, DAMMIT!!! SOMEBODY MAKE A "HOT CHICK" THREAD IF WE'RE GONNA TALK ABOUT THAT!!!

(Sorry, you just got me a bit discombobulated there. I just don't want the thread to get off topic. Simone Simmons is so fucking hot, though. Dammit - I did it again, you asshole! )

There's absolutely nothing "core" about Epica.

HOLY SHIT HOW DID I FORGET SABINA CLASSEN

You're right. The "core" moniker is a bit overused - but, what I was trying to say was that Epica is basically the exact opposite of "badass" (which is basically the topic of this thread). It is beautiful, and beautiful metal has its place, too (although that place generally isn't my CD shelf - unless it's post-rock), but beautiful metal and this thread are just two different things. If Explosions in the Sky or This Will Destroy You had women in them, they still wouldn't make this thread - even though I like those bands very much. Does that help clear things up?

Sorry - I didn't mean to belittle any music of which you might be a fan.

(I might do it in a different context, but not in this thread, and not in the comment which you quoted above. )

Oh, okay. Yes. That's fine.
I was just sitting there, befuddled at HOW anyone could see anything remotely "core" in Epica, haha.

Though, you want badass from Epica, listen to "Death Of A Dream" off of The Divine Conspiracy

I will...as a penance.

EDIT: Ya know, that wasn't half bad. That's as close as opera gets to death metal, anyway. Cool song. In the hands of lesser songsmiths, this mixture of genres could have been complete rubbish. These folks pull it all off quite nicely, though.

Here are a couple more:

G. Amber Valentine - Jucifer

Musically, they are all over the map, but there's definitely both metal and punk all over their sound. The band is simply a married couple - she sings and plays guitar, and he plays drums. That's it. But they make a hell of a lot of cool-sounding noise together.

Cheshire Agusta - Stinking Lizaveta

Another unique band - a couple of brothers, and a female drummer who brings the heat. They are an "instru-metal" stoner-y trio who is very obviously influenced by the greats (Zeppelin, among others). They have a new album out called "Sacrifice & Bliss" - check 'em out for something completely different.

Speaking of female drummers, there is another trio worth checking out...Seattle's Helms Alee. He (Ben Verellen) plays guitar and sings. She (Dana James) plays bass and sings. She (Hozoji Annie Matheson-Margullis) plays drums and sings. All three of them bring it. What a trio - very much in the vein of Torche, or a host of their other labelmates at Hydra Head, these folks are an up-and-coming force to be reckoned with. Check out their debut LP "Night Terror" - it's fantastic.

Nat

How did I not listen to Ludicra before? I'm on that shit right now...


Ludicra are the most underrated band in underground metal as far as I'm concerned, really inspiring stuff, especially live. Makes you wanna put down your instruments and at the same time start taking your music shit seriously at the same time. Their drummer Aesop is also one of the coolest people on the planet.
