Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult’s Onielar – Brutal Female Metal Vocalists
Onielar (pictured far left, above) may be the most terrifying female metal frontwoman on the planet. As a member of German black metal band Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult, Onielar packs a sharp vocal style along with solid guitar work and an unnerving stage presence.
Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult formed in 1997, with Yvonne ‘Onielar’ Wilczynska having fronted the band since the beginning. If you were to play the group’s music for an unknowing listener, there is no way they’d recognize Onielar as a female vocalist, but with the aid of Onielar as the face of the band, Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult has succeeded at becoming a force in the underground black metal scene.
Out of the four full-length albums and various splits the band has released, their 2004 record, ‘Nocturnal March’ is arguably their most noteworthy. The self-released album contains some serious black metal gems such as ‘Chronicler of Chaos,’ ‘Scaffold Salvation’ and ‘The Dead Hate the Living.’ The velocity and precision of the band is paramount when compared to their contemporaries, stitching together elements of speed metal within their evil attack.
