129 Frost

The album Milliontown will stand up to any album by any band in this category. Frost suffers from 1 ailment when it comes to top 10 lists; they did not begin recording before the 90's.

130 Clan of Xymox
131 New Trolls
132 Moon Safari

Moon Safari is without a doubt, one of the best progressive rock bands to come out in a very long time. They manage to keep the spirit of the prog from the 70s and then put their own flavor on it. You should listen to their album "Blomljud". Truly impressive stuff.

133 Areknames

Fantastic, very surprising, fresh band. The only band that sound like the unique VDGG. Worth every note

134 Ozric Tentacles

Ozric Tentacles, you have to on one live performance of them just to love them. Most of their albums are diamonds in prog music. Ozric Tentacles soud be at least in top 5 but most of the people don't know them.

YES. Someone else appreciates the genius of ozric tentacles. - SammySpore

Just only listen to Jurassic Shift or Erpland and you will see that Ozric Tentacles is one of the best progressive bands ever.

135 Mashburn Riffs
136 Fates Warning Fates Warning Fates Warning is an American progressive metal band, formed in 1982 by vocalist John Arch, guitarists Jim Matheos and Victor Arduini, bassist Joe DiBiase, and drummer Steve Zimmerman in Hartford, Connecticut.

Though Dream Theater is the best, Fates Warning is my most played prog band. I just like to listen to their simple and creative music.

105? Are you people on dope or something? Well, maybe. That Fates Warning is not in the top 25, at least, is criminal. Mars Volta ahead of the godfathers of progressive metal? Laughable. Perfect Symmetry is one of the 10 best progressive metal albums ever made. It's a masterpiece. Ray Alder's soaring vocals, the duo guitar attack of Frank Aresti and Jim Matheos, and the insane rhythm section of Joe DiBiase and Mark Zonder.

137 The Chronicles of Israfel

I can assure you all, this band is the best progressive rock band now.. Just listen to their songs on bandcamp (many songs have not formally been released.

138 Red Blanket
139 UFO UFO UFO are an English rock band that was formed in 1969. They became a transitional group between early hard rock and heavy metal and the new wave of British heavy metal.

Hardly prog but the use of hammonds and orchestras on some of there stuff is great

140 The Tangent
