Best Progressive Metal Songs of All Time


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Trains - Porcupine Tree
102 This is the Life - Dream Theater
103 Hearts Alive - Mastodon

One of the best prog songs I've ever heard. If you haven't heard it, only Yeezus can help you now.

104 Speak - Queensryche
105 Viridian and White Walls - Between the Buried and Me

First of all, shame on everyone here for not including one of the best modern progressive metal bands on this list, and shame on you for not recognizing the pure musicianship on these songs. while this whole album is technically one song, the ones that go best together are the final two, Viridian, and White Walls. it starts off with amazing jazz style guitars and amazing work on strings to full on progressive masterpiece of the best 17-18 minutes of your life

106 Celestial Elixir - Haken
107 Ticks and Leeches - Tool
108 Shogun - Trivium

Trivium may not be a progressive metal band, but this song definitely is.

109 Goddess Gagged - Protest the Hero
110 Pushit - Tool

May not be the best in my opinion, but it DESERVES to be on this list at least. My favorite by the band.

111 Scarred - Dream Theater
112 The Mission - Queensryche
113 Suite Sister Mary - Queensryche
114 Finally Free - Dream Theater
115 Flying Whales - Gojira

One of most brutal songs, thanks for great bass solos - Odinest

116 Master of Puppets - Metallica

A lot of people see it as thrash/speed metal, (Sure, it's fast) but let's face it, people, it's progressive metal.

I don't know why it'd be a prog metal song. - zxm

117 Vendetta - Deligma
118 Rime of the Ancient Mariner - Iron Maiden
119 Light of Day, Day of Darkness - Green Carnation
120 To Tame a Land - Iron Maiden
