I'm looking for some type of gothic metal music that would feature an instrumental aesthetics similar to what we consider as "technical". I genuinely prefer the gothic metal style with female vocals, but any recommendation is welcome.

I doubt you'll get plenty of replies here but I suppose some of Paradise Lost's 2009/2012 songs would fit into this category: back then they played some modernized gothic metal that's rather heavy and at times did get rather sophistical in the guitar department.

Uh, that's a tough request :lol:
The only band i know that could fit is the norwegian Atrox, in particular the middle period (Terrestrials, Orgasm..)
A pretty complex, female vocal driven mix of gothic and avantgarde metal.. try them!

...maybe, just maybe, Black Lodge's "Covet" will do it for you.

I believe the band you're looking for does exist -

The combined tags "gothic" + "technical" give two bands; this might fit your request:
https://soundcloud.com/reveries-end - female sympho goth imo
https://demised.bandcamp.com/album/my-d ... -demo-2015 - much more indebted to the "genuine" goth sound

This is probably the closest.
