Best Progressive Rock and Metal Albums of 2015 by Underground BandsMetal_Treasure Underground, or obscure bands are lesser known bands - most of you probably never heard of them.
The Top Ten
Update: I made this list one year ago and put this album at #1. Now, one year later, I am happy to report that this album got over 1 million views on youtube. This is very good because, you know, prog and technical albums with many instrumentals aren't easy listening. - Metal_TreasureV 1 Comment

A Norwegian progressive metal band formed in 2001. - Metal_Treasure
Songs: Nocturnal Haven, Distortions Of Perception

German melodic progressive rock/metal band - Metal_Treasure

Lonely Robot is not a band so much as a project, a project conceived and helmed by veteran guitarist and singer/songwriter John Mitchell.
Mitchell is probably best known these days as long serving guitarist for British progressive rockers Arena and singer for the 1980s progressive rock band It Bites. - Metal_Treasure
Beardfish are really underrated and this album proves they should get the recognition a band like Dream Theater does. - IronSabbathPriest
Pretty good album, pretty eclectic, and in my honest opinion should be in at least, top three.
The title track (Comfortzone) in particular is awesome. I agree it sounds a lot like old 70s prog. I look forward to the band's lead singer's upcoming solo album this year! - IronSabbathPriest
@IronSabbathPriest - this is really good, thanks for adding it!
It's nice to have here an album that sounds closer to the classic 70s prog rock (because the albums I added are probably more metal-lish). - Metal_Treasure
Songs: Minion, Bennett Built a Time Machine
A band from LA, California - Metal_Treasure
This is a great album but it's by Steven Wilson and not by Porcupine Tree. Anyway, thanks to whoever added this album. - Metal_Treasure
This album made a lot of Metal Injection writers' top 10 of 2015. Really an amazing album - ryanrimmel
Imagine Meshuggah with dream pop influence of Mew and you get this, best djent of the year.
