143 Deftones Deftones Deftones are an American alternative metal band from Sacramento, California. The band, which was founded in 1988, consists of Chino Moreno, Stephen Carpenter, Frank Delgado, Abe Cunningham and Sergio Vega.

Yea... Deftones is a really amazing band. Personally I'm a huge fan of them and it was the first band to got me deeper metal and one of the first that got me in rock in general, their music evolved over times, they were nu-, alternative-, experimental-, they've put elements of hip-hop, dream pop and other genres into their music, but... I've never had a feeling I was listening to progressive metal band. If anyone wants to listen to '-amazing' metal band this is a really, really, really (I'm telling you) really great choice. This isn't progressive, so put the in general chart of best metal bands ;) And rock on Good People m/

They just another nu metal act nothing about them really in the root of progressive metal sound!

144 Distorted Harmony

A great band is not only a band that plays good music, because they can really play because of their chops and skills, but especially because they know how to write great songs that you don't forget in a sec.

Their songs are unique, different from other bands. They have a good vocalist and an amazing drummer. Their lyrics are just mindblowingly awesome, its impossible to stop listening to them after discovering them.

Amazing band, one of the best (if not the best) to come out in 2012. Very unique sound with great vocals and keyboard work.

151 Muse Muse Muse are an English alternative rock band from Teignmouth, Devon, formed in 1994. The members are Matt Bellamy (lead vocal, lead guitar, piano, keyboard), Dom Howard (drums, percussion) and Chris Wolstenholme (bass, backing vocals). They've won several awards including five MTV Awards, 8 NME Awards, more.

Another band that doesn't represent the sonic of metal arrangements and sound but still been listed here! What man... Do you really know about music?

How muse is progressive metal, they are not a heavy metal, not even hard rock, they are more of an alternative rock band. more accurately alternative pop - zxm

152 Sigh
153 Sleepytime Gorilla Museum
154 Baroness Baroness Baroness is an American heavy metal band from Savannah, Georgia whose original members grew up together in Lexington, Virginia.

Very underrated band, not sure why... Nowadays, even Masto-eff-don tries to be like them. Listen to Yellow & Green, I'm ABSOLUTELY SURE you won't regret it.
