Ludicra

The San Francisco-based quintet Ludicra specializes in straight-ahead black metal (i.e., no gothic keyboards, pagan folk influences, or electronic leanings) in a style influenced by bands such as Darkthrone, Gorgoroth, Dodheimsgard, and Bethlehem. The group formed in 1999 and consists of guitarist John Cobbett (Hammers of Misfortune and the Lord Weird Slough Feg), guitarist/vocalist Christy Cather, bassist Ross Sewage (also of Impaled and formerly of Exhumed), vocalist Laurie Sue Shanaman, and drummer Aesop. Their original lineup included another member, Jesika Christ (also formally of the Bay Area death/black metal band Sangre Amado), who is credited with writing some of the material on the first Ludicra album. That album, entitled Hollow Psalms, came out in 2002 on the Bay Area-based label Life Is Abuse. That recording also featured guest contributions from Melynda Jackson (Subarachnoid Space) and Lorraine Rath. Ludicra play semi-regularly in the San Francisco area, where they have built up a strong reputation based on their intense live shows, in which they have shared the stage with a diverse ranging of bands including the death metal quartet Impaled, the post-hardcore/noise outfit Total Shutdown, and instrumental math metallers the F**king Champs. The band's next album, Another Great Love Song, appeared via Alternative Tentacles in the fall of 2004. Ludicra followed up two years later with Fex Urbis Lex Orbis. ~ William York

It's nice to hear such convincing female vocals. A step above what you get from arch enemy, otep, kittie, etc. Check out Anguished if you want to hear more female black metal.

This doesn't sound like black metal to me, not to say they aren't a talented band. Aside from the vocals, Ludicra sounds more like an alt-rock band heavily influenced by Alice in Chains.
