Best Progressive Rock Bands


The Contenders: Page 7

121 Clan of Xymox
122 Chicago
123 New Trolls
124 Moon Safari

Moon Safari is without a doubt, one of the best progressive rock bands to come out in a very long time. They manage to keep the spirit of the prog from the 70s and then put their own flavor on it. You should listen to their album "Blomljud". Truly impressive stuff.

125 Areknames

Fantastic, very surprising, fresh band. The only band that sound like the unique VDGG. Worth every note

126 Ozric Tentacles

Ozric Tentacles, you have to on one live performance of them just to love them. Most of their albums are diamonds in prog music. Ozric Tentacles soud be at least in top 5 but most of the people don't know them.

YES. Someone else appreciates the genius of ozric tentacles. - SammySpore

Just only listen to Jurassic Shift or Erpland and you will see that Ozric Tentacles is one of the best progressive bands ever.

127 Mashburn Riffs
128 Fates Warning Fates Warning Fates Warning is an American progressive metal band, formed in 1982 by vocalist John Arch, guitarists Jim Matheos and Victor Arduini, bassist Joe DiBiase, and drummer Steve Zimmerman in Hartford, Connecticut.

Though Dream Theater is the best, Fates Warning is my most played prog band. I just like to listen to their simple and creative music.

105? Are you people on dope or something? Well, maybe. That Fates Warning is not in the top 25, at least, is criminal. Mars Volta ahead of the godfathers of progressive metal? Laughable. Perfect Symmetry is one of the 10 best progressive metal albums ever made. It's a masterpiece. Ray Alder's soaring vocals, the duo guitar attack of Frank Aresti and Jim Matheos, and the insane rhythm section of Joe DiBiase and Mark Zonder.

129 Beardfish

An incredible bang out of Sweden. Sleeping in Traffic pt.1 and pt. 2 are fantastic!

130 The Chronicles of Israfel

I can assure you all, this band is the best progressive rock band now.. Just listen to their songs on bandcamp (many songs have not formally been released.

131 Magic Pie

Very good prog rock in every time

Hardly prog but the use of hammonds and orchestras on some of there stuff is great

134 The Tangent
135 The Mayan Factor

So underrated band, almost unknown but the greatest, there is no doubt, listen to it

136 Taal

When I am asked about my favourite music and I want to tell an example from nowdays then they come to my mind at the first place.

137 Green Carnation
138 Umphrey's McGee V 1 Comment
