They can be softer like porcupine tree also, and they dont need to have breakdowns and stuff...

Actually Porcupine Tree's album Fear of a Blank Planet is actually pretty heavy.

Meshuggah, Devin Townsend Project, Symphony X, Pain of Salvation, 3, Animals as Leaders...

I don't know what THA and PTH are.

Here's a list, but I can't guarantee they are good or even real prog metal:

I'd suggest checking out some DVL, RMD, some G and possibly some WOLBASQ

Seriously though, aside from what's already been said, try some Obscura, Atheist, Cynic, Cloudkicker, Ihsahn, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Jeff Loomis' solo album...some of that's a bit heavier than what you've listed but still largely progressive if not necessarily 'prog'

What is WOLBASQ? I did a search on the internet and it just brings me back to this page. Can't tell if you're joking.

Well simply my favorite band at the moment (Probably mentioned a lot of times before) but Periphery, or even any other band from the Sumerian Records big four (The Faceless, Born of Osiris, Periphery, Veil of Maya.)

If you like prog metal, check out Endeavour from the UK. They just release a new record called 'From The Darkest Grounds' and you should check out the opening track 'Drowning Memory' here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jbofnj2UxQY

Pain of Salvation are one of my favourites.

Start with The Perfect Element part 1, then Remedy Lane. (Also my favourite concept albums)

If you like them, go backwards. I wouldn't bother going forwards.
