Is there any more bands that are along the lines of Between the Buried and Me and Protest the Hero that are as good as they are? Bands that are really technical, progressive, long songs, and not Opeth? Thanks in advance.

Disillusion - Back To Times Of Splendor - TEN ****ING THUMBS UP

Progressive and Technical Stuff, not related to BTBAM

Edge Of Sanity - Crimson and Crimson II - REALLY long songs
Lykathea Aflame - Owns you
Agalloch - Very atmospheric
Opeth - They will be mentioned whether you like it or not

^ Dude Lykathea Aflame(Especially), Agalloch and Edge Of Sanity are nothing like BTBAM not even slightly

SikTh although now split up but id definitely like to hear some bands that are similar to BTBAM fo sho.

maybe try some Gorod? although they are still pretty different, more short songs with more melodic riffs.

Well, he said technical, progressive, long songs. Plus, all of the bands in my list, Dream Theater, and Opeth aren't like BTBAM.

Yes he said long technical songs similar to PTH or BTBAM which the bands you listed arent even remotely close to. Opeth and DT are as close to BTBAM as youre going to get from the well known bands and a far more similar than any band you listed.
#10
Not metal, but whenever i think of BtBaM and PtH, i also think of the human abstract.

and sikth is really really awesome. check them out too.

Did you listen to Disillusion?

Opeth don't sound like BTBAM........

Dream Theater are FAR MORE technical than BTBAM with A LOT less metalcore.

did i mention disillusion in the bands that i said werent like BTBAM? no, that is because i havent ever heard of them and thus would be foolish to comment on them with no knowledge of them. i was refering to the 3 bands that i listed in my post. simple

Here's your quote: "Yes he said long technical songs similar to PTH or BTBAM which the bands you listed arent even remotely close to."

*sigh*
Forget it. I was just showing some bands that a fan of Prog Metal would like.

In all seriousness though, just go the rec thread.

You're losing interest because you're simply not gay enough. Which leads me to believe you aren't cut out for metal.

why are so many people against Satanism? It's essentially a branch of Christianity, if you think about it. If you worship the Devil, you acknowledge the existence of Christ,, and God, and therefore believe in them, even if you do slander and deny them

It's just lyrics, why do you care?

Me, or him?

If him, then yes, I agree. It's not like they actually kill people, or perform satanic rites or anything...


haha Oh man, almost kept a straight face.

But seriously, he's right

EDIT: and by he, I mean you DT

I dunno if you'd call them as technical as those bands but you can definitely hear the BTBAM influence on these guys - myspace.com/beneaththesilencenz
