101 Moonrise
102 Animals as Leaders Animals as Leaders Animals 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.

106 Dixie 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.

Surprised not to see them already.

This band should have been at the top of this list!

109 Anekdoten
110 Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso

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

BMS is one of the best Italian prog rock band. I cannot belive that they are in this rank at the 121th place
