Being the representatives of this dirty metal rock ‘n’ roll, they really let it rip during their legendary live performances.

Swedish gothic/doom metallers Draconian are searching for a new female singer following the departure of Lisa Johansson in November of 2011. The band posted the following on their official Facebook page: “Since Lisa left the band we are as you know searching for a new brilliant singer to take her place. If you think you’re woman enough to fill her shoes or if you know someone who could, please contact us. As we live and rehearse in Säffle in Sweden it’s necessary that you either live close by or don’t have a problem with traveling. This is a serious question so please, only serious suggestions. Hails!”
