    Aye. Although we're all looking for purity in some form or another.

    Lead singer of this one is a woman:



    Here's the original*, with translation



    It's the theme song for a cartoon series aimed at the 2-6 set. The singer in the punk/metal version, Animetal Lady, is a former cartoon voice actress who released an album of heavy metal covers of anime theme songs.

    *This isn't actually the original, but I couldn't find an original recording with translation. The OG is just as friendly and insipid.

    That's an awesome album! Reminds me of Nevermore. I only ever got to see NM once. They broke up right before I was going to see them a second time. I'm still bummed about that. (RIP, Warren)
    The next time I saw their guitarist (Jeff Loomis) play it was with Arch Enemy, who I see is up above. The elitists don't like them, but man I love them. I saw AE once with Angela and once with Alyssa. I saw them once as Carcass too (their forerunner, for those who don't know).

    Here's a female-fronted band. Purson. I like these trippy retro bands.

    How about some RJD, Bruce Dickinson, Rob Halford, Joey Belladonna inspired singers?

    Anyone?

    Speaking of covers, this one is fun. I may have posted it in the music thread previously.

    Of your list it's only Mr. Dickinson I have respect for. I got to see Maiden twice during their glory years and those guys put on a show!

    If there's ever been a better heavy metal song than The Trooper, well, bring it on.;)

    I love Queen. I need harmony and melody in my music, and it was that ferocious melodic quality to Iron Maiden's songs that made them my second favorite band.

    I didn't know till yesterday that there was such a thing as Mongolian Metal. But there is. This is fantastic stuff. The HU Band.

    Ozzy Osbourne as a solo band was better than Black Sabbath.

    Change my mind:
