The title says it all - this is a place to discuss progressive metal in general. This is probably my favorite genre of music, combining my love for progressive rock and metal. We can discuss all types of prog metal here - prog death, progressive power metal, traditional prog metal, progressive black metal, ambient prog metal, progressive doom metal, etc....

Let the games begin Big smileRawks

im listening to Gojira now and they are awesome, i love their shugging riff, crushing beats and time shifts, great atmosphere, and complex structure.

Gojira is a uniqe band to my ears, they are killer live their drummer is sick (in a positive way), i only have From Mars to Sirius  and absolutly digs its sludgy riffs and colourfull details

One of my favorite bands that I learned of through PA is Psychotic Waltz.  Devon Graves, the lead vocalist, has the voice of Bruce Dickenson and plays the flute like Ian Anderson.  It's a perfect combination.

Reminds me of Mike Portnoy  >>> Rawks

I haven't gotten into Edge of Sanity yet.

I probably prefer experimental metal, post metal, avant garde metal, jazz metal, etc. (all those experimental metal genres) over traditional progressive metal, but I still love all forms of progressive metal.

To me, the most exciting thing that is going on in the prog-metal world right now is that Pain of Salvation are releasing their album "Road Salt - Ivory" soon. Rawks Perhaps in May.



And I guess it's cool that Dream Theater are touring with Iron Maiden in a few months.

When it comes to Progressive Metal (or Metal in general) it doesn't get any better than Sigh. Imaginary Sonicscape is my favourite Progressive Metal album (well, it's tied with Back to Times of Splendor).

Scenario IV: Dread Dreams is a fantastic album too, definitely their most underrated along with Gallows Gallery. Sigh can really do no wrong.
 
Oh, and I love your user picture thing. Freakery is a fantastic Grindcore release Big smile

 I also think some of the material Lamb of God have progmetal credidentlals, mostly their riffs are what i call complex, the drumming is quite impressive, and the overall sound is quite epic.

also LoG is avtuly not no painfull to listen to becouse the production is quite good so you hear all the instruments clearly so you get the neuances

Alright, I won't try to hide it. LOLTongue

Crimson is in my top 5 albums EVER, and I love all of their other stuff (except for Infernal and Cryptic as well).

In the worlds of progressive metal, Kayo Dot's Choirs of the Eye is a stand-out for me as are Taal's albums and Hoyry-Kone (though there we're more Prog than metal).
