    I was watching the documentary "Until the Light Takes Us" and there was a part where Fenriz was at a shop playing King Crimson's Epitaph (I had to shazam it, as I had never heard it and wasn't familiar with King Crimson.) I loved it. I got their debut and Red as it was recommended by the record store I was at. I'm looking for more stuff along the lines of Epitaph, I love the super progressive sound they had. I haven't liked much of the progressive metal I have heard so I think I am looking for rock, not metal.



    Anybody have any suggestions?

    By the way I would like to stay away from more "psychedelic" stuff.

    Try Nektar's albums "Journey To The Centre Of The Eye" and "A Tab In The Ocean". Maybe also some of the early stuff by Genesis (with Peter Gabriel on vocals), like e.g.

    Try the album Abacab by Genesis. The title track is a masterpiece

    Starcastle.....yeah! I have their first album. When Yes took 3 years to tour, and do solo albums, before rejoining for the next album, Starcastle put out their first album. A lot of Yes fans got into them, to hold them over, till Yes released Going For the One in '77

    Ayreon- The Castle Hall
    I actually recommend the entire 'Into the Electric Castle' album, Arjen has put together an entire progressive rock opera story with a lot of GREAT guests, including Mikael Akerfeldt from Opeth.

    In a Glass House and Octopus by Gentle Giant along with Aqualung and Thick as a Brick by Jethro Tull are also progressive essentials. Traffic's John Barleycorn Must Die is also an extremely worthy album of the early 70s.

    Anything Yes has done is worth listening to. Genesis's Lamb Lies Down is their best IMO.
