    I recommend to listen "FireWind", "Allen-Lande", "Angra", "Ayreon" (and all Arjen Lucassen's proyects), "Redemption" (as a Commandment), "Suspyre" and "Adagio".



    Aja! haciéndole promo a Delta!!! jajaja....está bien. Ya está bueno que Delta se abra al mundo y comience a tocar afuera.

    I know Secret Sphere is good, though they cross too much into the power realm.

    Definitely check out Redemption's "Sapphire" --- a most awesome track all around. Stellar musicianship and enough emotion to fill a stadium.

    This is a good game. Some of these bands are pretty good, thanks everyone.

    If you like Neal Morse and the Beard try Karmakanic

    Freak Kitchen are also awesome, not much like SW but they fulfil the other criteria


    No one has mentioned Richard Andersson have they? Self indulgent, arrogant, Swedish keyboard shred. I love it.

    And finally, imagine someone Star Wars on 8 string guitars, now you can stop imagining it because these guys have done it


    I also give more votes to A.C.T, Pagan's Mind and Angra.

    I don't know what all bands have been recommended.

    But: Pagan's mind is incredible, and if you're a fan of Stargate, every single song will blow your mind. Every song is about Stargate. It's pretty damn cool.

    They are also incredible live. Check out New World Order on Youtube.

    As well, if you want more amazing bands. Kamelot, though they're power metal, Ayreon, and anything by Arjen, such as Guilt Machine, Ambeon, all that fun stuff.

    Keep an eye on

    EMPTY TREMOR - IRIDIUM (2010)

    Very close to Seventh Wonder/Dream Theater/Circus Maximus, just a little less catchy.

    Many excellent bands already listed, i.e. Andromeda, DGM, Adagio, Fates Warning... but still few brilliant ones are missing ;)

    Anthriel - don't miss to check their debut album titled "The Pathway"; sounds like mix of Symphony X, Seventh Wonder and many more

    Caravellus - don't waste your time for their first typical power metal debut, just take their sophomore effort "The Knowledge Machine". Tempo's changing very often, many catchy tunes, however it sounds harder than SW

    Silent Memorial - their album called "Retrospective" is a very good sort of Dream Theater's style of playing

    Vindictiv - more neoclassical, but still progressive and melodic. Debut ST album highly recommended.

    Pantommind - very good band from Bulgaria. Their "Lunasense" CD is an excellent release.

    I think most people responded based upon the qualities he's looking for in a band: odd time signatures, top notch musicianship, and quality vocals.

    I'd add Darkwater, Aspera and Hourglass to my list of recommendations.
