Best Progressive Metal Albums


The Contenders: Page 9

161 Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star Vol. IV - Coheed and Cambria

Because the third track Welcome Home captures what Faith No More were like with the mighty Jim Martin. Epic progressive rock/metal band. They do it all.

162 From the End of Heaven - Gods of Eden

Because, here in Australia, our metal talent is world class and owns almost every band from Hard Rock to Thrash to Death. Now, Gods of Eden's debut is already creating a major stir in the progressive metal science, and if you're after brutality, technicality, mentality, and guitartillery this album smokes and makes most of the bands on here look like pompous, self-important twits. Welcome to the 21st century.

163 Money Shot - Puscifer

I'm more than aware it's not metal, but if you love MJK and progressive beauty, this album is venomous, spiteful, and beautiful. If Pink Floyd are on here, you may as well own something that owns Pink Floyd.

We shall never know world peace until three people can simultaneously look each other straight in the eye at the same time - MJK

164 Soul Sphere - Born of Osiris

Just a great progressive deathcore album from an exciting progressive deathcore band. The number of genres and sub-genres modern day metal bands is simply remarkable, and bodes well for the future of modern metal, but not for the veterans. Welcome to the 21st century. This album could belong on 4 different threads it's that damn technical and heavy.

165 Alaska - Between the Buried and Me

The greatest progressive metal act on the planet killing it, once again. Beast!
