102Animals as LeadersAnimals as Leaders is an American progressive metal band from Washington, D.C. It is composed of guitarists Tosin Abasi and Javier Reyes along with drummer Matt Garstka, having been formed by Abasi in 2007. Their musical style has also been described as djent.

They don't need a singer because their music speaks for itself. Abasi is probably the most technical guitarist in history. come on the guy plays and 8 string. His tapping ability is unmatched. How the drummer keeps up is better comprehension. Great band.

106Dixie Dregs

Second best band of all time, next to RUSH. Who else could combine rock and country and jazz fusion?

Prog rock or American bluegrass rock? Let's be straight.

This is Top 5 material, particularly the first three albums. Symphonic, dual keyboards, operatic singing - doesn't get much better than this.
