That's it. Female-fronted black metal. And that means black metal projects with women singing the lead. And that means that 99% of this is women growling and screaming and doing harsh vocals.

YES:
- black metal bands with a female lead singer on at least one song
- co-fronted bands with extreme female vocals
- clean female vocals only if they are the ONLY vocalists or if they share the duties with another clean voice

NO:
- guest vocalists, only stable members of the band
- co-fronted bands with harsh male voice and clean or soprano female voice
- female backing vocalists
