Back in the early 90s, being a female vocalist in metal was a rare thing. Acts such as Girlschool and Warlock had paved the way for others, but there was still a long way to go.
Then three women came along who had a big effect on the change in the scene: Kari Rueslåtten of The Third and the Mortal, Anneke Van Giersbergen of The Gathering and Liv Kristine of Theatre of Tragedy. These bands and their vocal styles were highly influential on the gothic and symphonic metal bands that came after.
Now they are joining together for a new project named The Sirens, where they will perform songs from their respective back catalogues, both from their old bands and solo careers. The project will appear at MFVF as well as a number of other tour dates throughout Europe:
14.10.2014 DE Bonn, Harmonie
