Best Progressive Metal Songs of All Timepetrucci75hammet
The Contenders: Page 6
An awesome, heavy, and long song that doesn't feel as long as the time suggests. Just an incredible mixture of different time signatures, guitar solos, effects, melodies, lyrics and of course the drums... Oh those drums!
I really love this riff, its in my top 10 of favorites, and the solo just takes you into another dimension. The chorus is super catchy and its just a great song overall
I had never thought of this song as progressive before now, but listening to it again, whoever added it to this list is definitely right. Great song by A7X, and well worthy of being in a list of prog metal greats.
One of the best progressive metal songs ever, Just because this song is new, doesn't mean it isn't a great song. A7x aren't really regarded as progressive, but this song definitely sounds a lot like dream theatre. GIVE IT A LISTEN!V 1 Comment
This should at least be in the top 10! Amazing blend of progressive and heavy riffs.
All those time signatures! It doesn't get any more proggy! My favorite part:
Bathing in beautiful agony!
Most of you don't know this song is a progressive metal song because your ears want to hear something like Dream Theater. One is the best progressive metal song ever written and played.
Oh God! I know it's a good song. But why it has to be on this list? - zxm
It was either this one or Octavarium. I think the reason One hasn't gotten as many votes as the others, is because Metallica are known as a thrash metal band. But... AFJA was definitely a progressive album.
No, Master of Puppets is more progressive than one.
I love Muse and this song is brilliant! (Muse inspired some songs by Dream Theater :) )
Muse kicks ass, but it's not prog metal
An excellent tune shifting between chill and driving sections, the melodies in this song in particular are great. Same goes for Gildenlöw as always.
Come on guys dream theatre and Symphony X are not the only progressive bands out there. Also, progressive isn't really a genre so much as it is music that defies traditional genres and structures. It doesn't all sound like power metal guys...
