    I like time-loop movies, groundhog Day being there most notable. My favorite is probably Triangle. I’ve seen Timecrimes, Happy Death Day (& 2U), Edge of tomorrow,

    I love rock bands with women on the vocals. I like Dead Sara, The Pretty Reckless, Halestorm, The Beaches, The Warning, In This Moment, Metric, The Interrupters, Larkin Poe. Lots more but that’s a good sample.

    What other bands/artists might I like?

    Edit: thank you everyone for the recommendations! I have so much new stuff to listen to!

      Have you tried venturing more towards the metal side like…

      • Lacuna Coil
      • After Forever
      • A Sound of Thunder (probably more rock)
      • Arch Enemy
      • Epica
      • Unleash the Archers

        I’ve seen Epica live, unfortunately whoever was on sound that day really fucked it up.

        I’ve seen Arch Enemy too, with good sound, but I would trade that experience to see Lacuna Coil… I know they are popular but I still feel like they are massively underappreciated.

        Haha yes, although it feels a bit weird thinking of her that way considering most fans of the band have seen her boobs at this point lol

      I would like to ask a similar question:

      I very much like the “the beauty and the beast” - styled metal. That’s at least what I read online sometime what it’s called.

      The mix of a male voice growling and a female voice singing melodic kinda does it for me, but so far I had very little luck finding stuff that fits, actually just a few songs.

      Any recommendations?

        A lot of symphonic metal bands are like that. On the top of my head, you could check out Nightwish, Within Temptation, Epica and Unleash the Archers.

        Tristania - World of Glass, and if you like that check out the two albums before it as well.

        I’m sure Epica has that aspect, but I would instead recommend … The Project Hate MCMXCIX!!!

        Pretty much all of it is exactly as described, aggressive male, melodic female. They are excellent.

        Sorry, here’s a Spotify link, couldn’t find this track on youtube

        https://open.spotify.com/track/5yKIKRcUAlSW6H1JFdZIF1?si=8d9c960d206e4820

        Oh man, I had forgotten about these guys, they are freakin excellent. The track name is ‘At the Entrance of Hell’s Unholy Fire’

          And ‘Hate, Dominate, Congregate, Eliminate’ is a really great album. I would actually recommend listening to that one first.

          I found this band by accident because I was looking for Hate.

          Just their early stuff - self-titled debut, Velvet Darkness They Fear, A Rose for the Dead, Aegis. The stuff afterwards isn’t bad, but it’s not the same genre.

        July Talk would be my #1 recommendation. They are fantastic and perfectly fit your description.

        There are a few songs around with Max Cavalera (Sepultura, Soulfly) and Maria Brink (In This Moment). Not at home at the moment, can’t check my collection, but if you can find them, they’re probably the sort of thing you like.

      Well, you’re in luck because we are living in basically the platinum age of women fronting cool rock bands.

      Just off the top of my head:

      Bones UK, Sniffany and the Nits, Cable Ties, Amyl and the Sniffers, Mod Con, Waax, Gutter Girls, Flagipanis, Panic Shack, Tiger Pussy, The Hellfreaks, The Darts, The Creepshow, The Spookshow, Zombina and the Skeletones, Bat Fangs, La Butcherettes, The Death Valley Girls, Sleater Kinney, The Veleteers, The Julie Ruin, The Bobby Lees, The Coathangers, The Regrettes, The Pink Slips, The Blushes, Bratmobile, LA Machina, Scrunchies, Skating Polly, and The Nova Twins.

      I could dig up more if I start scrolling through my playlists, but there are tons of women out there right now making great music. Seems like every time I turn around there’s some cool new thing.
