Idk if this goes here but

Any good metal or rock bands besides Sabbath and Opeth that dont continue to overuse the verse chorus verse chorus solo chorus song structures?
Country music sucks

Anciients?  Saw them a couple weeks ago, I like their progression very, very much... check it yo :-)

Monolord, Electric Wizard, Thou, Tragedy (particularly Darker Days Ahead) - they do it, but still rad progressions.  Watch them Die, also kind of typical, but they explore having multiple verse structures, so it kind of fits.
