Best Progressive Rock Bands

141 Areknames

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

142 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.

143 Mashburn Riffs
144 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.

145 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.

146 Red Blanket
147 Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of Robert Plant (Vocal), Jimmy Page (Guitar), John Paul Jones (Bass, Keyboard) and John Bonham (Drums). The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition more.

They only had one song that was close progressive rock.

Dazed and confused, Stairway to heaven, No quarter, Kashmir, IN THE LIGHT! ACHILLES LAST STAND! - DarkSideOfDragons

Led zep well say no more did it for me

148 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

149 The Tangent
150 The Mayan Factor

So underrated band, almost unknown but the greatest, there is no doubt, listen to it

151 Taal

When I am asked about my favourite music and I want to tell an example from nowdays then they come to my mind at the first place.

152 Green Carnation Green Carnation Green Carnation is a progressive metal band from Kristiansand, Norway formed in 1990. Green Carnation's trend of music has continuously become less and less heavy after every release; from straight forward death metal, to a progressive doom metal sound, to an atmospheric gothic metal sound, to a melancholic more.

154 Starset
155 Gryphon

They explored new musical territory fusing medieval music and rock. Incorporating diverse instrumentation such as recorders, crumhorms, bassoon and mandolin they sounded like no-one else. Richard Harvey and Brian Gulland are brilliant multi-intrumentalists, Graeme Taylor, like Steve Howe, a versatile guitarist in many styles. David Oberle great on a drum-kit or various percussion and vocals. Later members of comparable ability. Pity they only lasted for 5 albums

156 Jade Warrior

They are SO underrated! Nobody knows about them! - SammySpore
