Modern Prog Bands

So, I enjoy bands like Karnivool and the Mars Volta (except their last album). I also enjoy quite a bit of prog metal. Noise rock is also cool, if well done. I'm looking for more modern prog rock bands though.


Suggestions?

Some argue for Coheed and Cambria.

My knowledge on prog is actually rather limited.

Here's a cool band that never got the attention they deserved. If you like CC and Karnivool then I imagine you'll enjoy them.

The Party Of Helicopters

3 is also good.

I seriously recommend everyone listens to Chaos Divine, their album The Human Connection is absolutely fantastic!

I'm not much of a fan of Riverside, but they always struck me as a band that a lot of Prog-heads would enjoy.

Touch on the metal side of things but worth a look german proggers Vanden Plas are great, they are a lot like Dream theater.

Anathema



Diablo Swing Orchestra may interest you as well. Generally they're considered to be avantgarde, but honestly they sound nothing like any avantgarde group I've ever heard. For lack of a better genre I'd call it Theatrical progessive metal.





Other than that... Pretty much any project Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree has been a part of.

The more recent Anathema albums, Weather Systems particularly, are amazing. They've made quite the transition from where they started in the more metal territory.

Also, OP, Pain of Salvation and Shadowlight.

You could maybe describe the new DEP single as prog?



You might dig Dead Letter Circus too:

Wow, it's gonna take me forever to go through this list...

Although, I will say that Riverside and Porcupine Tree aren't my thing.

As for the rest, any albums rec's?

@Chemical:
Sounds good.

I have none for the one's I've posted I'm afraid. Either go onto Last.Fm see what the popular consensus is or hop on youtube/spotify and see what you like.

@Morph:
Holy shit! Now I have to go through that and figure what I don't have and then decide if I like it.

Edit:
That Trapt song is actually kind of cool. Be nice if all their work kept that vibe. Iirc, most of their stuff is more commercially friendly.

Their album Arm's Way is what I like to call "Progressive Pop", they have a very poppy/indie feel.

I would say Sufjan Seven's music is pretty progressive, check out The Age of Adz, it's a sort of electronic/dance musi, but with all this tense orchestral stuff over top.


Here is There was a band from Tulsa, Oklahoma. They were incredible
www.myspace.com/hereisthere
Their early material was all progressive music, it's hard to find, though there might be some stuff on youtube. But their later stuff was a little more toned down, they got a rapper and started adding more electronic stuff. Check out Hours Off, Greedy Nature, Try2 Want2 and Kwestions + Q'ancer
Some of their early stuff


These are less metal choices or maybe less traditional prog bands, but isn't that what prog is all about


Free Moral Agents (Ikey from the Mars Volta's band)
Incubus (their album a Crow Left of The Murder is kindy of proggy, but they did some tracks for halo 2 called The Odyssey and they're stellar)
Muse (arguable)
John Frusciante too. his last 3 releases are pretty progressive (The Empyrean, Letur-Lefr and PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone)
