Title says it all. Really, does progressive rock/metal/anything have anything to do with 80s rock, or shred? Sure, both progressive and shred are usually technically diffecult genres, but, that's about it, isn't it?
i agree. progressive seems more like shred in recent years, but those old school prog bands really dont fit in here

Saying the Red Hot Chili Peppers have no talent is like saying Guy Fawkes didn't have an epic mustache.
first read the assumed definition of shred on this particular forum.

2nd: forum for every genre takes a hell too moderate.

3rd. what the other guy mentioned: it all shares technical/advanced/shred (or however u want too call it) GUITAR work. I'm sure there are prog only forums around; this is just not 1 of them. Difference makes it all

Anyways don't question it, I mean. You could have ended up in the emo forum.. jk

But ye i slightly agree. Who knows, maybe it will change some day.
