ideas for a new mix CD

I was thinking of doing an entire mix of female lead vocals within the goth/industrial range. I just went through and tagged a bunch of bands that are either lead by a person of female sounding vocals or has single tracks of the same. Here are some of the bands (some are not particularly gothy but I could see using them during a softer place in the mix):

Cocteau Twins
Chainsuck
L'ame Immortelle
Bel Canto
Collide
Delerium
Imperative Reaction (only a couple of tracks)
Claire Coyant
Faith and the Muse
Love is colder than death
Siouxsie and the Banshees
Kidney theives
Cranes
Anroid Lust
Chiasm
Rhea's Obsession
Flesh Field
Ego Likeness
HMB
Inkubus Sukkubus
Massive Attack
Die Form (some of the tracks)
Concrete Blond (Bloodletting, of course)
Rasputina
Miranda Sex Garden
Dead can Dance (some)

There are lots more bands like Portishead and stuff but they really fall outside the range I want to go.

Anything obvious that I missed? I want to pull from as large of a set of music as possible so that I can get the tracks to flow well. I'm disqualifiying tracks with male vocals in them as well.

Luxt is female lead vocals and it's industrial, though its industrial industrial and not electronica/techno industrail.

Have you checked out The Gathering? It might be a bit more metal than you are looking for though. But it has some gothy stuff for sure.

Juno Reactor.
there's that delerium & Sarah Mclaughlin song that was big 5ish years ago. Aphex twin has a few tracks of female-only vocals (Deep In Velvet (Phillip Boa & The Voodoo Club) off Mixes for Cash is the one I can find currently)

That comp. is so hit and miss for me. I did my jr. college fashion show to the devil in disguise cover off it though.

Hmmm now I am in the mood for Cocteau Twins or Inkubus Sukkubus, neither of which have I listened to in ages. I am a big fan of the female Nightwish (and similarly Rain Fell Within and Within Temptation) vocals, but I am not sure that that would be doable in what it sounds like you are trying to mix.

I was just going through my harddrive and seeing what came up. The more material to draw from the better the mix.

They're not obvious, but pardon me for pimping my brother's band Mankind Is Obsolete, all female vocals there.
