The Contenders: Page 5
Really underestimated band (hymns for the broken is an epic album! ).
Evergrey should be in the 5 of this list.
Brilliant musicians. Every song is a beautiful composition. Modern prog with a more calm sound. Good for listening to in the mornings and appeals to a wider audience while still retaining excellent technical musicianship.
Best new and modern progressive sound of the decade!
Good French Prog metal. Great technical skills.
If you are into prog metalwith a dark twist, try listen to the danish band Third eye with Per Johansson on vocals and with guest keyboard player Finn Zierler. Check it out
One of my favourite bands, the instrumentals are sheer bliss to listen to and their vocal album "A voice within" is absolutely fantastic and well put together. Really worth a listen if you like clean vocals.
These guys rule! I know everyone says that about their favorite, but for their musicianship, understanding of polyrhythms, and just the overall way they carry themselves in their interviews, they deserve to be listened to.

If Tool and Opeth would be entities capable of reproducing, this band is probably what their offspring would sound like.
Can't believe this band is so under rated! This band mixes their music with so much emotions. Such a beauty and style.
Most underrated band...soen must be in 4th place
One of my favourite progressive metal bands ever. Savia's drum solo will blow out your ears.
Tight, Heavy, Progressive, and Metal. Any fan of Dream Theater should try listening to Dominici's O3 A Trilogy Part 3. Can you say EPIC?
Technical and modern, this band from their first album "Exoplanet" to their newest addition "Language" continues to flourish, if you may. They started out on a more deathcore-like structure, but have really come to grasp the artistic values of progressive metal, in more recent times. Give Language a listen to really appreciate their sound.
These guys are way too low on the list!
They're avesome! Language is a great album! They should be higher on the list!
Best band on the planet,very melodic unlike dream theater! great vocals!
Just listen to VAHLE... Or EDGE OF THE EARTH... They just kill it to saturation...V 1 Comment
Theocracy should be in the top ten, even though they are Christian.
This amazing band is relatively obscure, but they are definjtaly one of the best progressive-power metal bands out there today.
They should be at the top 5. For creativity, heaviness, musicianship and talent
This list is stupid. These guys should be at the top.
Rediculously underrated band. Think of what would happen if you melded the progressive stylings of Opeth with the ethereal atmospheres of Agalloch, and added some Katatonia-esqu goth and doom to the mix. This band deserves to be in the highest echelon of progressive metal! Just as incredible as Opeth, if not, even better.V 1 Comment
ShommohoN is New Generation Proggressive Metal from Bangladesh. The Word ShommohoN means "HYPNOTISM"
Shommohon is the best progressive band and I personally love its song. specially baccha chele song and ses poroniti an awesome songV 2 Comments
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
Very new, but they're doing something special already. Less musical skill than many other bands here, but they create music that is more accessible to more people as opposed to established prog-heads, therefore I feel that they deserve to be higher on the list. - Angrycrumpet
Not really Progressive Metal, but this band is great. They combine gothic, doom and black metal.
Ps: where the hell is leprous? Leprous is the best progressive Metal band ever (after Dream Theater and Opeth)
