Over the course of time, progressive rock and metal has seen many great singers (both male and female). While male-fronted bands are definitely more dominant in terms of quantity, the numbers of female-fronted bands is far lower, but it could be said that the “quality-quantity” ratio is probably higher on the side of female fronted bands.
There are certainly lots of great female singers in progressive rock, metal and its related genres. Prog Sphere made a selection of 10 best singers that we consider to be the cream of the crop within these genres.
