The Contenders: Page 5
Possibly the best Progressive Metal album of the 2010s. It's inventive, grandiose and diverse. From the comedic Cockroach King, to the scale and grandeur of Falling Back to Earth, and the fantastic riffage in Pareidolia, this album doesn't falter a single time, even with shorter but just as impressive songs mixed in-between the monster 10+ minute tracks mentioned above. People say that the influences are very clear, but I will argue that this is better than anything that THAT band has put out since 1999 (and possibly ever, though that's just me). Haken are the new prog gods of the metal scene, and this is their magnum opus.
The new era of Opeth is defined as classic prog. I would love a death metal vocal track mixed in with the keys though...
A masterpiece of a concept album that is filled with heavy power, a great deal of emotion, atmospheric beauty, epic and stellar musicianship, as well as no weak tracks. This is an album that deserves to be so much more higher than it is. It's a fantastic piece of art that needs to be recognized more.
This album, to me, is Queensryche at their finest. It is substantially more technical and progressive than Operation Mindcrime, and so textured and memorable that I wouldn't even know where to start...
Their latest is their most accessible, and is probably the best jumping point for newcomers to their material, it loses a lot of its death metal growls but is still as deranged as anything they've ever done.
Basically invented Prog Metal
Very good, but their debut is better
The Best Album Progressive Metal For Indonesia Music Awards 2008 m/
Magnificent technical metal which, if memory serves me correct, was the first ever truly progressive metal album ever made.
Still unmatched after almost 3 decades. This album set the standard for progressive tech metal!
A dark but yet beautiful album. Prog power in your face.
How is this album not close to the top, its an absolute masterpiece, it joins the aggression of metal with jazz elements and also electronic. Its incredible.
