1. I’d recommend Leaves’ Eyes, Lacuna Coil, Theatre of Tragedy and The Gathering to name but a few. I appreciate The Gathering is not the heaviest band ever but this list was being pretty broad with it’s approach towards metal so I see no problem in following suit

  2. You neglected to mention the current Nightwish vocalist Floor Jansen who joined the band in late 2012. She only had 48 hours to learn the setlist before her first show with Nightwish.
    Every song had been recorded with Tarja and Annette Olzen. Her range, agility, versatility and control is by far the best. Unfortunately Marco Hietala has left the band, but her duets with him were impressive. While she attended conservatory,Epica vocalist Simone Simons was her roommate. Their combined singing in Sancta Terra and others sounds like a pair of metal angels.

  3. How can you leave In This Moment, New Years Day, Halestorm, OTEP, and so many others off of this list? They are all easily top 25
