    Alchemist is amazing. Organasm is an outstanding and VERY original album. I love prog, Riverside, Tiles, Threhold, Flower Kings, Jadis and many more.

    Ozric Tentacles and to a certain extent Yes are the only Progressive rock bands I really bother listening to, but I haven't explored the genre much. As for prog. metal, it depends what you want to classify as prog., so i wont bother.

    King Crimson is my #1 band so far. I've still got a whole life ahead of me, I'll probably find something better. I love tool, meshuggah, latter day death, pink floyd, magma, tangerine dream, queen, ect. I do not like prog that is pretensious, unless they can seriously back it up.

    Add ELP and Gentle Giant and you have excellent taste in my opinion.

    Stuff with some prog in it, from Floyd to Opeth, Radiohead to Atheist, is my main listening pleasure these days....

    some of November's Doom i actually consider proggish
    Opeth

    Im a big Prog fan too, and im into some of the jazzier fusion stuff as well, like Focus, and Mahavishnu Orchestra.

    But what do you guys think of The Mars Volta? not so much Metal, but for sure prog. Sometimes very strange, but i really really like them. I can hear a huge King Crimson influence in their sound.

    Anyone care to explain why King's X is considered prog by a lot of ppl? i like them, but i just dont hear how they're progressive.

    I love prog but rather prog rock than prog metal - prog metal bands tend to sound very similar and have no balance between technique and quality of the compositions, the only prog metal bands I listen to are Pain Of Salvation and Opeth, sometimes early Dream Theater but i's rare and the main reason is sentimental because I used to be their fan several years ago..

    My favourite prog rock bands are King Crimson, Van Der Graaf Generator, Osanna, Ange, Henry Cow, Mandalaband and many more.

    Later Amorphis dabbles in progressive metal and rock. Elegy would probably be progressive metal and Tuonela onward would be prog rock. Eclipse is alittle more heavy than the last but still not really anything to do with death metal or doom.

    Edge of Sanity 'crimson 2' is Dan Swano's moontoower are progressive.
