The two best London based female fronted Metal bands are out on the road on a dual headline tour at the moment and you can catch the show at London's Borderline on Saturday night.
Pythia and Mortad are also two bands very much on the rise and it surely will not be too long before both bands are regularly playing much larger venues than The Borderline.

Mortad were founded by Iranian vocalist Somi Arian in June 2010 and began carving their path with venom fuelled lyrics, taking aim at the hypocrisy of religion and the government as well as seeking inner truth and strength in the face of such oppression.
Following their 2011 Bloodstock Festival appearance Mortad are now confirmed for HammerFest 2012 and Metal Female Voices Fest 2012. The band's debut album, 'The Myth Of Purity', has been released through Metal Hammer magazine in the UK, as a cover-mount CD in February 2012.
Pythia lead singer Emily Ovenden is also a member of the classical group the Mediaeval Baebes and Celtic Legend. Drummer Marc Dyos and guitarist Ross White are originally from the thrash Metal group Descent. Tim Neale, formerly of Abgott and currently of Faith Of The Few, is on lead guitar. Richard Holland is on keyboards and Mark Harrington from prog band To-Mera is the bass player.
Pythia's second album, 'The Serpent's Curse' was also released in February 2012 and the band play Bloodstock 2012 in August.
