Who those of you who enjoy from Gothic Metal with female vocals such as Within Temptation, Nightwish and Epica. Make your way for Katra....

Finnish metal-act Katra was founded in summer 2006 when vocalist Katra Solopuro gathered a group of musicians around her.

Things evolved quickly and by autumn their first single Sahara got a fair share of radio air time. More was to follow when Katra was chosen to race for place to represent Finland in Eurovision´s song contest in the beginning of 2007. Katra performed couple of shows in TV and had over 2 million viewers.


The consist of...

Vocals - Katra Solopuro
Guitar - Kristian Kangasniemi
Bass - Johannes Tolonen
Keyboards - Jani Wilund
Drums - Jaakko Järvensivu


Katra Official Website
Katra Official MySpace

Some songs that I have enjoyed are...

From there new album - Beast Within - Beast Within *Single*
Another song from there new album - Swear
Lastly from there first album - Katra - Luominen

In my opinion her vocals could be stronger, would make each song a bit more powerful; but still all round good band.

Hope you enjoy!!

She's seems alright. I'll have to check them out further when I get home.
Thanks for mentioning them. I'm a big fan of female fronted metal bands.

I'm really liking this stuff! But I like male or female fronted bands, that doesn't matter to me. I got to listen to a little bit of Beast Within and it was really pretty good!

But I found this too! Aw Man... I am just loving it! Video and vocals! heart

Now this isn't the metalist of their songs though. I did really like the harder stuff too and I'm gonna be listing to more when I can! Sounds like she was classicaly trained, maybe it'll take her a little to get her metal wings on so to speak. Thankyou Vampira!

Teehee, I've seen this post (well... the name...) but never actually bothered to read it until now... and only because they have a music video in the upper left corner.
meh I thought it was Garbage until the music actually started playing. Laughing

I'm surprised to see such negative thoughts on this group though...
Then again, my tastes in music typically is quite different from the majority it seems.
I like the sound, the flow, and her voice... hell, she's even quite attractive too. Definitely going to have to check out more of their music.

Thanks for exposing me to something new.
Smile

I have the album. For your first listen it should be through headphones. That way you can actually hear the guitars and bass and such. For some reason my CD player softened those substantially. All around its a good album. I'll have to look into getting the album Sahara also.
