    I like Opeth. I do not like Porcupine Tree. PT sound too manufactured and not organic enough, not raw enough. I want prog metal in the organic vein of Opeth. I also want prog rock that sounds organic. I despise overproduction and it will quickly ruin a band unless the production is to separate the instrument's sounds (I.E. Rush). If it detracts from the energy of the music too much I hate it.

    Gimme some recs!

    Sieges Even, maybe?

    I don't know if you'll like the production though. Give them a listen at their myspace.

    For the Symphony X, try Divine Wings Of Tragedy, it's probably the closest of their albums to what you're looking for. Flows extremely well.

    If you're interested in bands that sound similar to Opeth, check out Ikuinen Kaamos and Farmakon

    It's spelled differently. You should listen to them, it's fucking EPIC orchestral progressive metal (and instrumental).

    Everything here except Symphony X and Dream Theater, who do not sound "organic" at all. Very slick productions.
