I have recently been interested in the Instrumental Prog Metal genre (lol) and i've been listening to the obvious bands such as Scale the Summit and Animals as Leaders and i'm really starting to get into it. Can you guys reccomend some other bands like the two above to help me get started into the genre? Thanks.

There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Next time if you could please post things like this in the recommendation thread at the top of the page, that would be great You'll get better responses there, and it keeps the forums cleaner. Here are some bands for you to look into though:

Blotted Science
Canvas Solaris
Liquid Tension Experiment
Sleep Terror

DREAM THEATER and associated acts like Liquid Tension Experiment, as suggested. The guys have done solo work as well as A Night with Petrucci and Rudess, quite good as well.

Petrucci is a golden guitar god.

Well, Liquid Tension Experiment is the obvious choice. Actually, Dream Theater, while not entirely instrumental, have had a lot of great instrumentals, like Erotomania, Stream Of Consciousness, or their entire Instrumedley (which is just a lot of solos put together).

Plus there's the John Petrucci solo work.
We are one, and we have found they only wanted you around to hold it down, so hold your ground, we won't be here forever.
