Favorite Prog-Rock/Metal of the past 10 years? - Page 2

post #16 of 43

I know they got started in the 90s, but Symphony X is definitely near the top of my list, and my favorite albums of theirs all came out in 2000-2011 - V: The New Mythology Suite, Paradise Lost, and Iconoclast.

 

Have to add another less well-known band, Beyond Twilight. Their album Section X is pretty damn cool. smile.gif

Hmmm, where to start...? Here's my list of pretty new bands (with album suggestions):

 

-Indukti  (SUSAR)

-Devin Townsend Project (Deconstruction) (the "project" part started in 2009 with KI I believe)

-Katatonia (Night is the new day)

-Karmakanic (Wheel of time)

-Animals as Leaders (Animals as Leaders)

-Nevermore (Dead heart in a dead world)

-Wolverine (Communication last)

-Haken (Visions)

-Seventh wonder (The great escape or mercy falls)

-Protest the hero (Fortress)

-Periphery (Periphery)

-Mastodon (Blood mountain)

-ISIS (Wavering Radiant)

 

Those are the ones on top of my head, tell me if you want more and I can fill in some. Some bands are from the late 90's, sorry bout that.

Great names here but again, many of these bands were around well before 2000...

 

Im looking for bands that have come to market in the past 10 years.

 

regardless, some names here that I have never heard of so will definitely look into those.

I really liked the Lake Trout album Not Them You. No good Youtubes, but here are some 30 second clips:

 

http://www.amazon.com/Not-Them-You-Lake-Trout/dp/B0009JK1DS/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1324293855&sr=8-6

 

It's not as heavy or metallic or proggy as most of the others in this thread, but thought I'd mention it. In my mind it comes from comes from the same place as some of these.

 

I'll always associate this album with rainy days and playing Portal 2 I think. It actually reminds of Failure's Fantastic Planet in a way.

If you like Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus has a very similar vibe, and the lead singers are pretty close in style as well.

The band Frequency Fall put out two LPs and an EP within the past ten years that are hard to find but worth it. Their first LP, Resensitize, has been a favorite of mine for a while.

 Leprous                Formed in    2001
 Tesseract                                2003
 Textures                                  2001
 Haken                                     2007
 Oranssi Pazuzu                       2007
 Animals As Leaders                 2007

 Persefone                                2001

 

 

Somehow I was able to crossover into newer progressive. Other than old Opeth, it's still not a favorite genre. The genre looks like it will be on the upswing for the next 5 years or so.

Youve got some good Djent here Red.

I ADORE Tesseract; ONE is one of the most interesting albums I have heard in a very long time.

Im a big Textures fan as well but have yet to pick up their new album (new vocalist?)

I like AAL as well.

 

Are the rest Djenty too?

That term is new for me even though I play guitar. I will listen again to some of the bands. To tell you the truth I don't know? Sometimes I call bands like Oranssi Pazuzu prog. They are not but considered Psychedelic Black Metal.

 

Talk about guitar, are you into Cloudkicker? I would almost believe he is a genius for recording and writing all he puts out. He has a prog guitar style where the songs are mostly guitar based from the stuff I have heard. No doubt this guy is so talented he may have expanded to other instruments, or will in the future. I have only heard the album Beacons.

 

 

Monumension by Enslaved is one of my favorite prog/black metal releases

Cloudkicker is genius.

"The Discovery" is my favorite album.
