Best Progressive Death Metal Bandsryanrimmel
The Top Ten
Very good Progressive Melodic Death Metal. Still Life and Blackwater Park are one of my all-time favorites.
I wished they kept their style, but unfortunately they do Prog Rock now... - Flav
Masterclass musicianship + pioneering innovation. Mikael's voice will melt your heart and then pummel you to death with its ferocity. Guitar work is phenomenal and songwriting is unparalleled.
One of my favorite bands of all time 10/10
Opeth pre-Heritage will always and forever be my favorite band. No other band has such great swings between clean/growls. Ghost reveries and blackwater park are simply the greatest albums of all time in my opinion. But all other albums were masterpieces.
The "new" opeth though is not my cup of tea at all... :(
Absolute gods of the genre. The best work of Swanö was done here.
Dan Swanö is a legend! Everything his hands touch becomes magical, I guess. Edge of Sanity with Dan Swanö as songwriter and vocalist made epic albums!
Only their debut was a bit weak and the 2 albums, where Dan didn't wrote all the songs (Cryptic & Infernal) weren't that great..
Nevertheless the 2 Crimson-Albums and Purgatory Afterglow are Progressive Melodic Death Masterpieces! - Flav
High-class Progressive/Technical Death Metal hailing from France. Leading Vision is one of my all-time favorite albums! - Flav
Such an amazing combination of extreme attitude and musical prowess but with great hooks and impeccable sense of style.
My personal favorites are Leading Visions (10/10) and A Maze of Recycled Creeds (10/10). The first is slightly more song-oriented where the latter shows off more their playing skills, but I love them both equally.
Bottom line - they make good songs. Check em out today!
Incredible Avantgarde/Progressive Death Metal band. Not as melodic as Edge of Sanity or Opeth, but way more progressive!
Their sound is an excellent mixture of Jazz, Progressive Metal and many Death Metal elements.
Unquestionable Presence was a true masterpiece and Piece of Time was almost similary incredible!
(Their later albums are not that superb, but still good in my opinion.) - Flav
Most amazing entity of the 21st century to come along - heavyheavy
Started as a Technical Deathcore band, but turned into one of the best Progressive/Technical Death Metal acts. I'd recommend Planetary Duality to everyone who likes Tech Death - Flav
Late era Death (since the Human album) is definitely Progressive Death Metal and the best of its kind in my opinion. Human, Individual Thought Patterns, Symbolic and The Sound Of Perseverance are superb albums and not much bands reach this class! - Flav
First off, how is Death not #1 since they basically made the genre, and second of all, The Sound of Perseverance and symbolic are the best reasons for why they should be in the first slot. Opeth is great and all, but Death tops all.
No one tops them. They made death metal, and evolved it to something bigger since "Human".
DEATH IS THE BEST!V 1 Comment
They started as a great Thrash Metal band, then became one of the most prestigious Old-School Death Metal acts and then turned to an "okay" Progressive Death Metal/Jazz Fusion band in my opinion.
I liked their previous sound more. I think the new sound isn't bad, but not great either.. - Flav
Awesome Progressive/Technical Death Metal band. I really dig their stuff, especially the "Warp Zone" album. - Flav
Great band, but only released a few Progressive Death albums - ryanrimmel
Even among Opeth and other big names, and only showing hints of DM in their first 2 records (mainly the first) these guys play in a higher league.
Progressive Blackened Death Metal. The only one I've heard - ryanrimmel
Interesting Progressive/Technical Death Metal band from Germany. Definitely good stuff!
When you want to get into Tech Death, I recommend this band to start with. It's not the very best in my opinion, but their sound is very catchy and "easier listenable" than e.g. Martyr. They don't get too complex as other bands, as well. - Flav
Their new album "Akróasis" is just
a hit and a joy to listen to.
A German band which should not
be missed in your cd/vinyl collection. - CannibalCorpse
This Canadian band has just turned metal on a higher instrumental level.
They have recorded real masterpieces.
