Who is Helen Vogt?

Female vocalists in hard rock and heavy metal that are talented and beautiful should be recognized. This article takes a look at former Flowing Tears vocalist Helen Vogt and the role that she plays in the album Razorbliss. Note: at the time this was first written, Flowing Tears and Lullacry were still active. Flowing Tears announced in March 2014 that their album Thy Kingdom Gone was going to be their final album. Lullacry disbanded in 2014 after 16 years together.

Helen Vogt was the front woman for the German heavy rock band Flowing Tears. She joined the band after the departure of original vocalist Stephanie Duchene for personal reasons. It could have been a serious blow to the band’s ability to bounce back and continue to develop. But the opposite effect actually took place. I really believe that with the addition of Helen, the band was in much better shape. I have not heard too much of the band’s earlier releases but I can say that Helen provides a nice and unique kind of voice to the female heavy metal scene. Her debut with these German rockers was in 2004 when the band released Razorbliss. Her husband is bassist David Vogt who replaced former bassist Frederic Lesny. Note: Flowing Tears would disband in 2014 bringing to an end a career that lasted two decades.

The Greatness of Helen Vogt's Voice and the Album Razorbliss

I know that some of you will say that her voice is so deep that it doesn’t sound like a woman’s voice. Helen’s voice is deep, that’s true. But I really like her voice. This is especially true for the song “Undying” on the RazorBliss album. The song tells the story of a teenage girl that struggles to bring herself to terms with the fact that she has depression. At the age of 16, the happiness that she had been having has been sucked out of her. She has to get back on track in her life even if it means walking when it is raining. I’ve actually really been listening to bands with female vocalists in them. I really like the fact that women are getting more of a chance to show their abilities in the heavy metal music scene. Heavy metal music is not only reserved for men. Women can sing too. Helen Vogt should be given at least some consideration. She is one of the best vocalists out there especially for this genre of metal. One of the defining moments for Helen in the album is the song Snakes of Grey. In that song, we hear the power of her alto voice as it soars. With that stated, how is the rest of the album Razorbliss? Her deep soaring voice dominates the title track as it is sort of way of looking at the human condition through the god and human perspective. The Bible says about the time that the Earth was flooded. Sometimes there has to be a calamity that has to occur for the human race to be saved and rescued.

Razorbliss is the band’s best album containing many stellar songs besides the title track. They are Virago, Undying, Firedream, Snakes of Grey, and Unspoken.

Helen Vogt: her hobbies and interests

When she is not involved with music and touring, Helen enjoys spending her free time with husband David Vogt, now the former bassist for Flowing Tears. She also enjoys reading good books, playing sports, cooking, planting flowers and having cocktail parties with her friends.

The people that have been the biggest influence in her life are her husband, father, former Flowing tears front woman Stephanie Duchene and the bands The Gathering and Anathema. And I also think that Helen is really, really cute. I am sure Flowing Tears was happy to have her in the band. The combination of looks plus a powerful voice is what any band would be happy to have. That is a major positive in my opinion.
