Perhaps the most purely brutal female metal vocalist in modern metal, Simone 'Som' Pluijmers, parted ways with Cerebral Bore just 24 hours before the band were set to begin touring with Dying Fetus, Cattle Decapitation and Malignancy. The messy breakup has been addressed by both parties, with Som claiming that she doesn't feel safe on the road with Cerebral Bore.

If you were to blindly listen to Cerebral Bore, whether on tape or at a live show, there would be absolutely no hint that the band's vocalist is female. As metal vocalists are continually searching for lower registers to base their screaming techniques, Cerebral Bore's Simone 'Som' Pluijmers can bring low, rumbling vocals that could match almost any man.
