A headline on Blabbermouth just now caught my attention with its touting of an all-female metal band from Sweden.
The members of Frantic Amber hail from Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Japan, and apparently they are gaining popularity.
Here is a video for you to sample:
OK. Not bad music, but as I was just discussing with Eric a couple of days ago, I am not a fan of death metal growling and am getting a little sick of hearing it almost everywhere these days. I will say, though, that this vocalist, Elizabeth, actually has growls which I can actually understand what she is "singing," and I do see from their MySpace page that there are clean vocals involved in the album, too - which sounds promising to me.
Still, this band has way more personality, from what I can see in one video, than say...oh, I don't know...Indica. I mean, check out their headbanging! Despite my issues with the vocal style, I am curious to see where these young women are headed and wish them the best of luck. We need more all-girl bands in metal!
