Missed the mark by a couple decades.

They are kinda modern sounding at least on their new albums though.

I've listened Myrath before, they are great. I agree that Tales of the Sands is really good album.
Anyway, thanks for the help guys, there are some really interesting bands. Keep 'em coming!

Disillusion - this band has already been mentioned but I just want to stress that they are really good. This is the only band that plays progressive music or at least I think so.

This band doesn't qualify as a new band, but, regardless, you should really check out Redemption's new album, 'A Long Night's Journey into Day'. Redemption has been around for a while, but the style on this album is definitely 'modern progressive metal', and is quite aggressive, which surprised me (I never cared much for these guys before this). So... go, enjoy!

Alright I've never listened to anything that is purely progressive metal and I would like to hear bands from the genre. Any recommendations? Hopefully this isn't a metal sin! By the way, If it's technical, I really wouldn't mind at all. I just don't know where to begin with the progressive metal genre which is why I'm seeking recs.

Progressive metal (rock too for that matter) tends to have something as a base and then adds to that whether it's power, thrash, death, etc. I'm not sure prog with nothing else, "pure," can actually exist regardless of the labeling. I mean Dream Theater and Symphony X are a couple of big names that are regarded primarily as prog, but you could throw an extra term with either, and I believe this site does with the latter. If I remember correctly, you're more of a trad, heavy/power, etc guy, so I imagine recs that lean that way would be better for you. On that note try Slauter Xstroyes two albums. The production is a little thin on Winter Kill, but the variety of riffs and quality of songwriting is worth hearing. I suspect you've heard Psychotic Waltz, but if not do so. Arch/Matheos' Sympathetic Resonance was a pretty good prog album, far removed from classic Fates Warning in style.

I know nothing about electronic music, but I do know that this has nothing to do with progressive rock or metal. You'd have better luck asking in the general forum or perhaps the Industrial Metal Help Thread.

StainedClass95 already mentioned some bands.

I'll mention some more:

Conception (first album is a mixed bag and good prog for those not into it. After that they became more prog as it's known today. Their third album is their best.)

Brothers Grimm (crazy intense prog that on paper could be easily wank shit, but it's clearly not. For 1990 it's super advanced!)

Othyrworld - More prog that's basically prog for those not into it. Unique, spacy-y sounding shit that's all about interesting riffs.

I haven't kept up with the genre in a while but I highly highly suggest "The Towers of Avarice" by Zero Hour.

Technical, introspective, but definitely very metal.

What makes progressive metal "progressive"? What are the features of this genre? I listened to Dream Theatre and they sound like heavy/power metal to me.

The term "progressive" is usually associated with songs breaking away from standard pop and rock structures (which often makes them long), and frequent use of odd time signatures and syncopated rhythms. Learning To Live is probably a much better example than whatever more straightforward songs of theirs you listened to.

Youtube: show

It basically takes progressive rock and combines it with metal riffs.

Does anyone know of prog metal that sounds like actual traditional metal? I listened to Haken and they sounded like Mini-Dream Theater. Vocalist sounds like LaBrie, guitar sounds like Petrucci, then they have the keyboardist doing the keyboard blahblahblah. Listened to Vanden Plas and still kind of sounds like dream theater.

What about something that sounds like Judas Priest's "Screaming for Vengeance" except they do weird times like 7/4 instead of 4 all the time?

The closest thing I can think of to what you're looking for might be Psychotic Waltz. All their albums are great, though _Mosquito_ and _Bleeding_ are less progressive.

Youtube: show


I assume you're familiar with pre-Dream Theater prog metal like Fates Warning, Crimson Glory, Queensryche, maybe even Savatage. You also might want to look into prog/power crossover bands that lack keyboards, like Angra, Shaman, Ark, etc.

Can anyone recommend some good Operatic rock/Metal? Something grandiose and perhaps dramatic, a bit like Queen.

The first band to come to mind is Shadow Gallery. My favorite albums were always Legacy and their s/t debut, though most people prefer Tyranny and Carved In Stone. Either way, there's lots to love throughout their discography.

There's a well-defined genre of pomp rock inspired by Queen and the like. Not really my cup, but I did enjoy the Jono album from a couple of years back. Excellent vocal performances.

Has anyone here checked out Ray Alder's recent solo album? I'm really, really digging it. The man's in some kind of groove recently.
