I stopped listening to Prog for a while and need to get back into it.

Really, the only prog I seem to like is Porcupine Tree (and Rush if you want to label them as Prog.) I can't stand Yes, Pink Floyd, or Opeth. Can someone help me find a band?

Dream Theater!!!!!!

Eh, I gave them a shot. I love Metropolis Pt: 2 but that's really it.

Oh I forgot to mention Coheed is one of my favorite bands so no need to suggest them. As well as, Mars Volta, Radiohead, and Sigur Ros.

I definitely recommend Dream Theater. I would also have recommended Opeth, but you ruled that out. Was it the vocals? If so, try songs like Burden by Opeth.

It was the only task I would undertake...

It wasn't so much the vocals but the metal. I like some metal but I just wasn't feeling it. I like Opeth but not to a point where they would go on my iPod.

Fair enough. I didn't like them so much when I first heard them, but I listened to them every now and then and eventually they grew on me. Since then, I've been hooked.

Maybe I ought to give them another listen then.....

By the way, nice Subdivision's quote in your sig there. Subdivisions is my favorite song of all time.

That's good, I was actually going to suggest some Rush

Anyone know of any "chilled/spacey" Prog? Like the Voyage 34 Porcupine Tree sorta stuff?

There is a lot of Omar Rodriguez-Lopez stuff that is like that. I'm sure you know who that is already though...

Flower Kings, King Crimson, ELO.

ELO... Prog?

Maybe very little of the early stuff but that's it. Very un-prog.

how do you not like Pink Floyd/Opeth?

Anyway, try Ne Obliviscaris (progressive black metal, I think you'd like As Icicles Fall and Forget Not off their Aurora Veil demo, Tapestry is probably gonna be too metal for you). 3 is good too. Also, can't believe nobody suggested Between the Buried and Me.

... Queensryche?

If you can get your hands on the Operation: Mindcrime album then you'll be hooked.

Ok so I'm gonna suggest Austin TV for you. They're kinda underground, but you should find their album Fontana Bella. They're Mexican instrumental kinda post rock with a lot of latin and progressive influence. They're pretty original, which I find cool. You'll hear some Volta stuff and some pop elements too.

Battles. This is a band I'm just getting into, but they're experimental like crazy. they use a lot of loops and the drummer is top notch. You gotta check it out for yourself. Look up the song "Tonto"

Look up Gong. Its a 70's english band, part of the Canterbury scene. The frontman Daevid Allen is inventive and weird as hell. You should check out "You" and "Angels Egg"

Kahn is a psychedelic band from the 70's. Its considered space rock, but it sounds pretty straight up. Look up the album "Space Shanty"

Van der Graaf Generator is a symphonic sort of prog band from the Canterbury scene. They were at the forefront (or at least had the most exposure) of the scene. Look up "Pawn Hearts" Some of the stuff Peter Hammill writes is just beyond ****ed up.

Thank you so much! This is the kind stuff I've been looking for. Battles is like THE Prog band I've been looking for.

Cynic is really good.

I don't know if you would TOTALLY consider them prog or not, more like technical metal with progressive attributes....

I mean, some people still think that Rap is music, although that's been scientifically discredited.
