Just using the words "traditional" and "progressive" together will seem like an oxymoron for some people, but all I mean by that is your standard "Dream Theater/Fates Warning" bands. Not just the rip-offs, but bands who play in that general style of mixing classic prog rock with traditional metal or power metal. A lot of people are probably tired of this, but I'm just now really delving past the obvious bands and hoping to find some more gems. I'll list as many as I can find or think of to get started, including the obvious.

Pull Me Under. You've heard it.

Here's a few more suggestions:
 
Riverside from Poland. My favourite prog/metal band and one of the best bands from the last 10 years IMO:
 
 
Shadow Gallery. One of the more consistent prog/metal bands of the last 10 years:
 
 
Pagan's Mind from Norway. Not yet in our archives I noticed. I'll be changing that very quickly. Here's a couple tracks from thier best album Celestial Entrance:
 
 
Another great band from Norway, Conception:
 
 
Canadian guitar hero Dave Martone. Instrumental prog/metal, jazz fusion. Technical wizardry:
 
Another Canadian instrumental band with only one album from 2000:
 
 
And one more technical instrumental band, Canvas Solaris:

@Certif1ed: LEGEND! Incredible band!! I was really into a whole murky, barbarian, progressive, proto-metal thing recently too, but Manilla Road, Cirith Ungol and Brocas Helm were about as far as I got. Damn, I'm seriously blown away by this.

Nightsun is pretty great too. Kind of a Deep Purple/MC5/Black Sabbath-by-way-of-RIO sound. Really interesting band!

@UMUR: Heaven's cry is a really sweet band! I hadn't heard of them.

Great suggestions, all!

Oops, took to long with that last post.

@Colt: Thanks, that's a bunch of bands!

@Cannon: I'm liking Pagan's Mind already. Hadn't heard them before either.

Yeah itīs really too bad they are kind of obscure. I really like their sound. Not too accessible, which is something I prefer.

If you donīt know Psychotic Waltz yet Iīd suggest taking a listen to this song. One of my alltime favorites. Psychadelic tinged progressive metal Headbanger
 
 
 
I guess my review of Into the Everflow speaks for itself: http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/into-the-everflow--review.aspx?id=214268. I am completely madly in love with this album and have been for almost 20 years.

Psychotic Waltz is one of those bands I've heard a little, but never quite known what to do with. I probably should spend some time on them.

If you want an easy introduction to Psychotic Waltz Iīd take a listen to the "Bleeding" album. Itīs my least favorite album by the band but it probably makes for a good introduction. The most interesting albums by Psychotic Waltz are the two first IMO.

Sonic Pulsar, kind of traditional prog metal I guess, some ambient influence here though. Two songs from each album.
