you might like Anathema or for sometimes heavier Opeth. Nevermore comes to mind also but they are heavy to.

Anathema is like the softer Opeth songs like on the Damnation album and nevermore is fast paced with petrucci type leads and interesting vocals. but they are a bit more thrash and drop tuned. the lead guitarist for nevermore Jeff Loomis has some great solo stuff also.

I don't know how old you are, but if you became aware of progressive music through the new prog bands, then you have the huge, rich, dazzling, immaculate heritage that the form has to offer. All for you to explore..

Genesis - Lamb Lies Down On Broadway. Rush - 2112. Yes - Tales From Topographical Oceans. King Crimson - Court of the Crimson King. Jethro Tull - Aqualung. Supertramp - Crime of the Century. Moody Blues - Days of Future Past. Rick Wakeman - The 6 Wives of Henry 8th. Emerson Lake & Palmer - Welcome Back My Friends to the Show That Never Ends..

Asia, Camel, PFM, Van Der Graf Generator, Barclay James Harvest.. The list is endless. 8)

Should keep you busy while you wait for those latest Dream Theatre and Spocks Brain albums..

If you're old enough to remember these from the first time around, then I have nothing to teach you! :wink:

I like most of those already mentioned from the late 60s early 70s and a few more not yet listed.
Queensryche is a favorite from the 90s.
Trillion (originally "Whisper") were a great prog-rock band from the Chicago area in the late 70s/early 80s. Youtube has some of their songs from their first album "Trillion".
The bands line-up at that time was:

Dennis Frederiksen - Lead Vocals, Bells
Frank Barbalace - Guitar, Vocals
Patrick Leonard - Piano, Keyboards
Ron Anaman - Bass, Vocals
Bill Wilkins - Drums, Percussion

You will probably recognize some of those names, lol.
Their second album "Clear Approach" had a change at vocals and keyboards and there are a few of those songs on youtube as well.
Here is a new song from an upcoming album, when I talked with Frank the guitarist a few months ago he was excited about the new material. I am excited for them too.

Trillion ~ In My Blood (from "Trillion III" future album!)

Some good suggestions here already. There's another band I used to listen from time to time from Germany called Grobschnitt. They really changed their sound quite dramatically over the years but if you want ProgRock you could try out their stuff from the mid to late 70's. By the early 80's they had morphed into a bubble-gum band so you might want to give that era a miss.

Just think of how awesome a guitar player you could have been by now if you had only spent the last 10 years practicing instead of obsessing over pickups and roasted maple necks.

Midlake,Rogue Wave or you could go back in time to some prog rock that sounds as fresh today as it did in the late 60's and early 70's-it was that far ahead of its time. Groups like Audience with their albums House on The Hill,and Lunch.Gryphon with Queen's Pawn to Red Gryphon Four.Traffic,White Noise- an Electrical Storm.Mahavishnu Orchestra,Billy Cobham-The Funky Thide of Sings,Pentangle and of course King Crimson-Court of The Crimson King,Emerson Lake and Palmer-Lucky Man,Tarkus,Pictures at an Exhibition.Orpheus.

Prog-rock is one of the genres that I should like (excellent musicianship, technically challenging performances and deep, poetic lyrics), but it just doesn't move me for the most part. I like individual songs by many of the better-known bands mentioned here, but I just can't get into the genre as a whole.

I'll give anything a second/third/fourth swing, but right now that's one genre that just doesn't do it for me.

Maybe I'm just too simplistic. :?
