Alright so I'm a big big fan of Pink Floyd, but I want something to sound like Floyd, but heavier. I bought Coheed and Cambria's last CD, Good Apollo, because I really liked "Welcome Home." Although I love C&C, other than Welcome Home and The Final Cut, their songs aren't really big epic metal songs, but more complex alternative punk songs.
I want a band that plays more songs like Welcome Home and The Final Cut. Something that sounds like Pink Floyd but more heavy metal. Preferably a newer band. Anybody know any?

okay, saying newer progressive metal is definetly asking for something you don't want. if you want newer progressive metal then check out It Prevails or Misery Signals. but you don't want progressive metal, you want progressive ROCK. i'd check out franz ferdinand and andy mckee if you like prog acoustic.

If you can handle the vocals, check out Between the Buried and Me. Huge Pink Floyd influence on their newest album, and incredible musicians.


between the buried and me for the win
Running away from this earth.
May it pass away in the beautiful flames that it was created for.
Because when tomorrow fails to come,
today is just not the same.
Inflamed earth.
Roses.
In this hope.
For all i care set it all ablaze.

You'd be better off asking about this in the Modern Rock forum.

Asking about it in the Prog forum will get shred guitar fans flaming the hell out of you, and asking it here will give YourLastAffront a mild stroke.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

True... UG is the leading cause of death among music elitists !

Too stay a little on topic, I only have a little piece of advice. Don't try to sound like anyone, play whatever comes naturally to you.

i have no idea what you guys are talking about.

ask either in 80's shred and Progressive forum, or the Metal Forum (recommendation thread). While we're here, Porcupine Tree and Dream Theater

Amazed it got that far without either of those two being mentioned. Two absolute staples of the music.

Are you high? Franz Ferdinand Prog Rock? waaayyyy off, modern prog rock are bands like The Mars Volta, Coheed and Cambria, The Fall of Troy etc.

Progressive Metal, without a doubt check out Between the Buried and Me's New cd "Colors" it's incredible, also check out obvious stuff like Dream Theater, Pagans Mind, Rush etc.

Haha, yeah he does sound rather snobbish. I don't mind it though.

EDIT: I agree, though. Franz Ferdinand aren't the slightest progressive. More like post-punk revival.

The Mars Volta, maybe some Tool? radiohead might be good too

I've never understood why people categorized radiohead as progressive, experimental at times yeah but I can't imagine justifying progressive for them.

Dredg - Not heavy though so don't expect anything metal. El Cielo is a concept album on a famous painting i cant remember the name of Unfortunatly I dont own that but I've heard its great. I have Catch Without arms though and I love it.

Muse - Origin of Symmetry, alot of fallseto mixed with heavy bass lines and classical influences with epics such as "Space Dementia" and "Citizen Erased".

- Absolution, this was influenced by "In The Court of The Crimson King" and "The Wall" and also a mix of influences. Its a concept on the Apocolypse.

These bands aren't your traditional King Crimson/Pink Floyd/Yes prog but they're like a fresh take on it.
