    I'm talking about the ones with soaring female vocals, not TSO lol. Stuff like Nightwish, Within Temptation, Delain (oh I love Delain), Sirenia, Epica, etc. It's kind of a niche genre, but I LOVE it. Anyone, anyone?

    I saw Nightwish with Tarja still singing in 2005. Incredible. I like within temptation too but the others all kinda sound the same to me. I also like the symphonic element in bands like dimmu borgir, even though by black metal standards they're kinda poseurs

    That's great. Love Tarja. She just came out with a cool Christmas album. I don't hate Annette as much as a lot of other fans do. Dark Passion Play is my favorite album actually.

    If you like female vocals, I have a weird recommendation, but I don't know if you'll like it since I don't know what other sub genres you like. Fear of god, the album "within the veil". Incredible obscure album that always flew under the radar. The next one, "toxic voodoo" was garbage, but within the veil is so good. It's an acquired taste, might take a few listens to grow on you. I really can't pinpoint a single style, and the range in her vocals is crazy, from melodic parts to growling, the same way you can hear a crazy range from king diamond. Check out a few songs on YouTube, "drift", "betrayed" , & "all that remains" are good to start with. I saw fear of god in front of a tiny crowd in 93 (yeah I'm a geezer, lol) and dawn Crosby, the singer sadly died in 96. May or may not be your cup of tea, but a rare gem worth checking into
