Oh sorry - I'm stuck in a Spamalot-groove right now.
One of my most beloved bands, that about NOBODY knows about -

The lovely Belgians Hypnos 69 - man they are fantastic!!!

So here's their lovely 'Halfway To The Stars':

THIS is Prog.

The amazing precursor to Goblin: Cherry Five.

I like a lot of progmetal - but not all of it.
Some of these musicians take the showing-off of their technique - which usually is indeed fabulous - a bit too far for my tastes. I well remember a concert of the Dutch band Textures, where I got the feeling I was experiencing some kind of sound-maths rather than 'music'.
In other words, lots of technique but hey, were's the emotion?

The actual question is how to define 'progressive metal' in the first place. There's a great variety in music that all falls under this definition if we're to believe the usual experts on sites and in mags, but the trademark-progmetal band must be Dream Theater imho. And yes, I do like them - well, the four musicians, I can't stand their singer! I also like Symphony X a lot, but that's mostely because they have a truly amazing singer (Russell Allen) who's also a very nice guy (). Threshold, with Damian Wilson - very nice too. (you might notice that the quality of singers is very important to me...)
I've noticed that some 'experts' also think that bands like Riverside are progmetal, which I think is a mistake - that band is much too atmospheric and melodic for that label. Opeth? Hmmm, yeah they are very heavy, but I don't put them under the label of progmetal either - I'd call them 'symphonic death metal', if that makes any sense.

Do post some of your favourite progmetal over here, Yves!

A BRILLIANT bootleg recording of Rush's 'The Camera Eye', back in 1981.
WOW, Fantastic!

Re: Bonnie the Cat's, formerly know as Stupid Dream - PROG ROCK thread!

One of the BEST examples of contemporary Progressive Rock:



This Is A Hate Song...

"Yeah, I'm hearing voices too,
and I'm more f*cked up than you!"


- in other words, who's the winner here?
Not that HATA!

I've commented about this fantastic song over here.

WOW man, this is CONTEMPORARY PROG ROCK at its best!

I vote for a summary death by firing squad to "prog metal". It's garbage.

Another example of real prog:

Re: Bonnie the Cat's, formerly know as Stupid Dream - PROG ROCK thread!

Oh one of my most beloved, and f**k a*d**k, I was THERE:



Could it ever be better than Porcupine Tree's "Dark Matter?"

I have my doubts on that.

Inside the vehicle the cold is extreme -
Smoke in my throat kicks me out of my dream
I try to relax, but its warmer outside -
I fail to connect, it's a tragic divide.

This has become a full time career,
To die young would take only 21 years.
Gun down a school or blow up a car -
The media circus will make you a star.


Dark matter
flowing out on to a tape
Is only as loud as the silence it breaks
Most things decay in a matter of days
The product is sold the memory fades.


Crushed like a Rose,
In the river flow -
I am, I know... '


"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

I miss Gu - let it be said, on THIS thread! - he's a very knowledgeable progrock fan, albeit a bit of a NostalgiaTard, but then, don't we all have our mistakes?

Another tribute to Gu :


"Confusion Will Be My Epitaph!!!"

My review of Blackfield's fantastic new album, over here.

And here's the lovely vid to "Waving":
