Arch Enemy and Lacuna Coil have announced their inclusion to the bill of the 10th edition of the Metal Female Voices Fest held from October 19th to 21st in Wieze-Belgium. Both bands will act as headliners for the first official day of a festival purely designed for those with an admiration for oestrogen fuelled viciousness, a vocal range that those with testosterone could only dream of (or make a painful sacrifice for) and a focal point who isn’t a sweaty dude with a beard. Epica, Delain, Diabulus in Musica and Xandria have already added their names to the bill of the Beligian festival’s 10th anniversary, which could very much prove to be the best MFVF yet.


Cristina Scabbia, the woman behind Lacuna Coil’s haunting vocal melodies, was clearly happy at the prospect of joining the metallic sisterhood on stage, to celebrate all things metal and feminine. “If you can put together good music, passion, heaviness, epicness and loads of beautiful ladies on stage… What would you possibly want more from a festival? The Metal Female Voices Fest is all this and I’m very excited to be back on that stage. We are going to let you sing and jump, to headbang and cry… And most of all, to have a great time with you all. See you there!”


Angela Gossow Arch Enemy’s guttural goddess took a slightly more blunt, but no less enthusiastic tone, “It’s gonna be fun to rock the stage with my sisters in metal at the MFVF 10th anniversary! It’s a great festival with a fantastic audience and as always put together with much love and dedication. We are more than happy to return and throw some pure fucking khaos into the mix!”
