While heavy metal is a lifestyle to some people, to many it's just a fashion statement. Take Gossip Girl Taylor Momsen of the Pretty Reckless, for example. She dresses like a hooker, flips people off, and publicly talks about her sexuality in the most awkward ways possible.
That's not called metal; that's called being a 17-year old that grew up with liberal parents. Her music is pop rock at best, but she sports an Iron Maiden shirt in an interview, and all of the sudden she's metal? I don't think so -- though I will give her props for her killer shoes.
There's a wide range of talented, beautiful chicks in the world of rock and metal--but the list becomes much narrower when the focus is truly raw talent and performance value. And a lot of these chicks have a knack for intimidating guys a bit as well, which you gotta love. We don't get much respect in the testosterone-drenched world of hard rock.
So, in homage to my sisters that rock, here's my list of the hottest chicks in metal. Don't be scurred, dudes. It's only pussy.
Angela Gossow from Arch Enemy
Angela Gossow: Hellbent for leather.
Vocalist and manager of Swedish melodic death metal band Arch Enemy; influenced by Rob Halford of Judas Priest, Chuck Billy of Testament, and Jeff Walker of Carcass. She's a voice on Metalocalypse, anarchist, Atheist, and one of the few successful female metal singers to use growling as her primary singing style (see also: Grace Perry of Landmine Marathon).
Butcher Babies features two leading ladies that terrorize the stage topless and covered in blood, Carrie-style. Oh, and they actually know how to sing and play guitar. Enough said.
These girls, as they say, are faster than you can say heavy fucking metal, undisuputed darlings of the Sunset Strip.
Has killer energy on stage, started playing bass at 17, oozes sex appeal and her dream opening act is Silverchair.
