    I don't like him either, but when you're used to him being in Dream Theater you wouldn't want anybody else to do the job.

    My favorite prog metal groups (minus SX ;) )

    Dream Theater
    Sun Caged
    Evergrey
    Liquid Tension Experiment (old instrumental side project involving most of DT)
    Derek Sherinian (solo work...great instrumental music)
    Aryeon
    Fates Warning
    Spiral Architect (may give you a headache with some parts though :p )
    Planet X (same as above)

    And if you're into Kotipelto and Stratovarius, you'll like Sonata Artica. They aren't prog, but they're power metal very much like Strato...though I feel they are a bit better. I like the guitarist and vocalist better, and the songs are more consistant IMO.

    I feel Jani is a very underrated guitarist one of my faves :headbang:

    Although I like Kotipelto over Kakko

    Requiem www.requiem.kpnet.com

    And if you like a little Death metal, the last works of Death (the band) are progressive indeed

    Requiem progressive power metal (more melodic indeed :p)

    If you like a little bit Death Metal, then listen Death (the band) their last works were a little proggressive orientated...

    Savatage is Heavy progressive... You might like it as well...

    I would add Pink Floyd to this list, definitely.

    IF you are OK with much, much softer, more minimalistic work, I'd also suggest the last 2 albums by Talk Talk, which are entitled Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock. They ARE NOT metal...not by a long shot. I imagine that if anyone else here knows who they are, it would be quite amusing just how UN-metal they are. But I respect them just as much as I would someone like Opeth or Symphony X. If you have very broad tastes in music, they are worth consideration.

    Which albums were you listening to, though? If it was Colour of Spring, It's My Life, or The Party's Over, I can understand where you're getting that.

    Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock are a complete break from that, though. At least to my ear.

    Colour of Spring is the album that bridges the two styles of Talk Talk.

    Armada is a good one
    Pagan's Mind - good but reply a little too much one hitting the same power chord over and over from time to time
    Galloglass - awesomness
    Gamma Ray - Kia Hansen :worship:
    Of course Edguy and Avantasia
    don't forget your Blind Guardian
    oh yeah and... Dungeon
    one more thing... Black Majesty

    AND... Exhibition
