Best Progressive Metal Songs of All Time


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Seventh Son of a Seventh Son - Iron Maiden
82 Citizen Erased - Muse

Great song by a great band. Most of their stuff tends to be progressive rock, but Citizen Erased is a beautiful example of their more metal compositions. - jackson135

83 Still Remains - Fates Warning
84 Through the Looking Glass - Symphony X
85 The Death of Passion - Nevermore
86 As Icicles Fall - Ne Obliviscaris
87 The Enemy Inside - Dream Theater

The most powerful song I have ever heard. The drum is absolutely crazy!

The whole song is absolutely insane. The Lyrics are absolutely blasting if you would read them. Actually its more Heavy metal than prgressive metal, but everyone who considers to hear DT, should listen to this song
