Top Ten Most Underrated Progressive Rock/Metal BandsIronSabbathPriest
The Top Ten
I know Porcupine Tree are highly regarded within Prog circles, but to the average music listener, Porcupine Tree is just another weird obscurity. What a pity, because I honestly feel that they can hold their own against ANY classic band, prog or otherwise. Steven Wilson is Britain's finest songwriter; capable of writing music that is accessible yet extremely intricate and complex (no small feat! ). His growing success will I hope lead to mainstream media recognition.
I couldn't agree more, definitely had to be porcupine tree. These guys leave more talent sitting around in a dirty sock than all the rest of today's music put together. - Beatlesboy9
Musically and lyrically, PT are amazing. Steven Wilson is a genius, and one of the best songwriters in prog. Along with Mikael Akerfeldt. - IronSabbathPriest

Opeth and Yes (while both amazing bands) are far from underrated. Gentle Giant is one of the best, albeit unknown prog bands. - Brobusky
Believe it or not, I heard of Gentle Giant before. You can say that PROG in General is underrated. - Pony
Very awesome and unknown, they deserve way more attention. - IronSabbathPriest
My ways are strange! They never change!
They stay... strange ways...
I've discovered this band recently, and it is some of the best prog metal I've ever heard! Listen to Back To The Times of Splendor (album). - IronSabbathPriest
If you listen the sleep of restless hours youll never stop listening to it. underrated band I wish people knew about it. the person who made this list got good taste in music.
Next to Porcupine Tree, their the best Prog Rock/Metal band to arise from the early 2000s although both were recording music way before then. - cjWriter1997V 1 Comment
One of my all time favourite bands. They are able to mix death metal vocals with prog metal music so well. - IronSabbathPriest
Awesome band, have a lot of great stuff. - IronSabbathPriest
If you hear the songs by Ne OBliviscaris, you will regret why you never heard them before. The violin solos are so beautiful and moving, that it transports you to some another dimension. Try 'Forget Not'. Hell, listen to every album they've ever recorded and you will never hear music so beautiful. Totally underrated band.
They helped create progressive rock. - IronSabbathPriest
This band is great but it's not progressive!V 1 Comment
Camel deserves to be higher. They released such classics like Mirage and Moonmadness, 2 of the highest-rated progressive rock albums ever.
Some amazing songs and albums. - IronSabbathPriest
Actually Mastodon are overrated.
Artcell isn't really underrated. They aren't famous because of the different region. - zxm
They may be underrated in the world of normal music, but in the world of Progressive rock they are not - Rushfan2112
In The Court of The Crimson King is often considered the first progressive rock album. This is a band that is willing to experiment, and almost aways succeeds. - IronSabbathPriest
Whoever added this is thick as a brick, they're not underrated. I guess. I now look at how stupid I was when I made this list. - IronSabbathPriest
