http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/last-things-the--circles-and-butterflies.aspx

This is a forgotten masterpiece from 1993... one of my favorite prog metal albums all-time! Clap Sounds like Marillion meets Dream Theater meets thrash metal. Cool


This should be coming in in about a month Cool
Got for $0.01 on Amazon.... with $4.99 shipping, of course LOL

This came in today. Some very great stuff on that disc!

I've been wondering this for a while... in your sig, it says you listen to what seems like entire albums continuously in last.fm..... how do you do that? Even when I go into an artist's radio, it takes dozens of skips to get one track BY that artist.

Thought Chamber has a very neo classical feel to it, at least the song I listened too. It's very cool!
Attention Deficit has some fine jazz metal elements, I like it a lot!
Thanks for these suggestions, too. Attention Deficit gives a little more variety to the suggestions too.

I really dig Attention Deficit's albums.  Michael Manring is such a unique bassist, and Tim Alexander is one of my favorite rock/metal drummers.  Skolnick is no slouch either Wink.

It's kind of an obvious suggestion, but Gordian Knot are another cool prog/jazzy/metal instrumental project if you don't have any of their albums.

If you like Gordian Knot, you may like OSI and Chroma Key (from DT alumn "Kevin Moore")
and Cynic members in Exivious, Portal and Aghora Big smile.

You were also mentioning "Riverside", here are some bands of that ilk (and tinges of Opeth
and Porky Tree):
1. Karnivool
2. Cloverseeds
3. Votum
4. Ephrat
5. Orphaned Land (could be part of list below too)
6. Cea Serin
And more in the Opeth Vein, slightly...:
7. The Ocean
8. Oblique Rain
9. Winds
10. Leprous
11. Enochian Theory
12. My Dying Bride
13. Katatonia
14. While Heaven Wept
15. Paradise Lost

I also hope you know about bands like Haken, Black Bonzo, Presto Ballet/Vanderhoof, Big Elf,
Anti-Depressive Delivery (ADD)
? Big smile
Kind of have that Retro-Prog thing going-with some heavier overtones like Deep Purple and Uriah Heep.
Are you open to "all kinds of" Prog Metal, like the complicated stuff ("Math Metal")?
And there is also the Post-Prog/Avant Garde Metal too Wink.

Glad you like PrOgulus! Do you come onto the Chat Board? (my aka is "MAVIII").

Hey Andy,

How is your "searching for new/obscure" going?  What have you liked, discovered and/or anything else?
 . . . just a' curious Wink

Do you know the French prog-metal Parallaxe? They didn't really bring something new, but their "Sondtrack" album is interesting as they (successfuly IMO) attempted to make a instrumental concept album with tech-metal material la Spastik Ink.





Their previous album too is awesome, even without the conceptual ambitions:

Hey guys! I'd like to recommend some brand new metal! It's actually my own Band's music if you guys don't mind. It's a fat mix of 8-string proggyness rounded up with aggressive synthesizers! Here's a link to our website:

http://www.facebook.com/indefiniteband?sk=app_2405167945

Enjoy fellas! Take care!

If you have any releases - even a demo or a single, or a release on the way - you should post a note in the suggest-new-bands section (if you haven't already done so, of course).

I especially would like something more inventive, like Riverside (but Riverside's style, just how they expanded on the idea of prog metal. Do any of you have a new band for me?


Do you promise that you will really listen to what I will recommend?

So...

Aetherius: http://aetheriusmusic.bandcamp.com/album/all-that-i-need-to-survive

Random Mullet: http://randommullet.com/

Both bands are on MMA (and PA).
