Shrieking Sisters

Ludicra

Plenty of women are fans of metal; however, fewer have broken through as musicians in the genre, especially singers. More recently, some have learned to master the gravelly black-metal growl previously considered the pinnacle of masculinity. Forget Evanescence and check out Angela Gossow of Sweden’s Arch Enemy and Oakland’s own Laurie Sue Shanaman of Ludicra. Both channel rage sufficient to blow amps but retain that certain feminine mystique likely to inspire a whole new generation of followers. Ludicra plays with Middian, Minsk, and Scorched Earth Policy on Tuesday, June 5 at the Uptown. 9 p.m., $8. UptownNightclub.com
