Tesseract at 46? You gotta be kidding me. These guys are awesome. Should be in the top 20 at least
Listen to Concealing Fate and you will see why TesseracT deserve to be top 10
A fantastic band with some beautifully haunting tracks and fantastic vocals
Every single sound they produce，be it on instruments or vocal chord，is dark chocolate for ears.V 4 Comments
If you listen "Snowfall on Judgement Day" and "Redemption - The Origins Of Ruin 2007 Progressive" albums, you will place they top 10...
Not: vocal is fates warnings' vocal
It has the singer from fates Warning but in my opinion this band is way better; just listen to the album the Fullness of Time - germshep24
Redemption deserves much moreV 1 Comment
Masterful, technical, powerful, beautiful, inspiring - Persefone is one of my favorite bands. I can't believe they're not more well known.
Not popular, but definitely worth a try! - Flav
Great sound and power!
Check out their album Spritual Migration
They are my favourite band! Greatest prog band ever!
Shadow Gallery is a completely underrated band.
They made a clichéd story about the New World Order cool - and somehow stretched it into two great albums, without having a single moment that felt overlong until the very end.
Metallica is not a progressive metal band. And Justice For All may have had a bit of prog going on but they're primarily thrash.
Because their first 5 thrash albums are not only the best 5 thrash albums in metal history, but they're also the most progressive thrash metal albums in history.
Metallica is thrash metal/ heavy metal/hard rock, not progressive metal - zxm
Interesting and unique blend of prog and jazz, with amazing female jazz-style vocals, "Inside the Hourglass" really got me into them! - petrucci75hammet
Roy is simply one of the best vocalists out there today. Dude used to be a legitimate opera singer, and I'd say that adds serious dimension to Kamelot as a metal band. Their songs are also nicely layered, often in an orchestral way. Highly underrated
Roy Khan was an awesome singer in his day, but I have to say when they replaced him with Tommy Karevik (Of Seventh Wonder), they made the perfect choice. He's even better than Roy ever was and the band seems to be doing their thing better than ever.
It saddened my heart to see Kamelot as #36 on the list. This band was easily in my top 3 back in the Roy Khan days, and still in my top 5 with Tommy Karevik.V 2 Comments
The discovery is an incredible album
First of all you not separate between heavy metal and hard rock genre! There is no Rush, King Crimson, Pink Floyd and many more great progressive rock giant in this list because they were not a metal contender in progressive metal. But some silly person put some band from prog rock in this list like Transatlantic etc. Iron Maiden is a heavy metal band, yes they have some influenced in progressive progression but the whole musical direction was not a progressive metal at all! Influenced by progressive music doesn't mean you are apart of it's!
They are not progressive Metal? "Book of Souls" with three songs longer than 10 minutes, "A Matter Of Life And Death" and "The Final Frontier" with their many epics. I think it is prog metal. - DarkSideOfDragons
Best metal band but they are a heavy metal band, not progressive metal. - zxm
Brilliant song writing skills. Catchy, maybe not as heavy but, definitely one of the best acts in existence.
They should be at least top ten. Come on. Just take a listen.
One of my greatest guitar influences is coheedV 1 Comment
I don't think they were playing metal music or prog metal sound. Yes they are among of the best but they should listed in the best prog rock band ever!V 1 Comment
Wow. Not even in the top 10? Disgrace. Any fan of Progressive Metal that has never heard Voivod needs to rethink Progressive Metal entirely. Porcupine Tree is number 8 and they're NOT EVEN METAL.
Voivod is Yes meets Exodus meets Pink Floyd meets Rush meets Motorhead meets Genesis meets Kreator on bath salts; and I'm not talking about the kind your Mom uses.
Voivod has more balls than any of these guys, with the exception of Rush. Too many lame-ass boo bands being labeled as progressive.
There's no speck of doubt this band belongs in the top 5.V 4 Comments
A very technical power metal band with progressive
... They has one of the best dual guitarists in metal, their skills and technique are just the same level as Dream Theater, Symphony x etc... Maybe better
Love this band. Rafa is cute.
Katatonia is not the death/doom metal band they were in the 90's. I can't describe them currently as progressive metal OR progressive rock, they seem to exist in a genre all their own. Still, Night is the New Day, Great Cold Distance and Dead End Kings are some of my all-time favorite albums, they are beautifully dark, and have a clean, refined sound. I love the harmonized vocals, haunting guitar riffs and technical drumming.
From Sweden and successfully sharing headliners with Opeth and sharing members on the fantastic side project Bloodbath. Another death metal band worth to try.
Katatonia might be recently exploring the progressive side of metal, but is a serious contender thou.
Not so much in their earlier offerings but everything from viva emptiness on makes these guys one of the top contenders for the prog metal hall of fame. I'm always anxiously awaiting their next release
One of the best post-metal bands of all times!V 1 Comment
