Hello rock lovers,
I'm an 18 year old boy who is slowly discovering the progressive rock world. I've started with Pink Floyd and immediately loved most of their works from Meddle until The Division Bell. Since then I've started looking for other bands and I came along ELP, Genesis, Mike Oldfield, PFM, King Crimson and especially Camel. Recently i've been listening a lot to Camel and I'm falling in love with their guitar and drums (especially in Mystic Queen and Lady Fanatsy).
So, in conclusion, are there any prog bands I should listen to considering that I'm looking for something similiar to Pink Floyd's Echoes or Camel's sounds? 
Thank you all in advance!

Hi! Welcome to the site. Handshake

Pink Floyd and Camel, you say? Hopefully these will do the trick:

Eloy - Silent Cries and Might Echoes - Perhaps the single most cited "Pink Floyd"-like album in prog history

Solar Wind - Mind Glow - This Israeli band isn't on progarchives (yet) but when I first heard this album it took me right back to some of Camel's spacier stuff (think Earthrise or the stuff on Rajaz).

Ekos - Otra Dimension - Great modern space rock; quite Floyd-like at times
when i was a kid a doller was worth ten dollers - now a doller couldnt even buy you fifty cents

Porcupine Tree and Pineapple Thief are both followers of the Pink Floyd sound.  RPWL used to be a Pink Floyd cover band and are certainly influenced.  There most recent release is a live rendition of Pink Floyd's The Man and The Journey; which I believe is only available in bootleg format, unless it is part of the huge box set that Pink Floyd recently issued.

Hi there Matteo welcome to the siteSmile
Always a pleasure seeing young kids outta Italy joining PA. I taly just so happens to be one of my absolute favourite places when it comes to music. I see you've already dipped your toes into Premiata Forneria Marconi - a band I love dearly, but if this indeed is the only RPI you've ever heard, then please feel free to ask for recommendations any time. I have a rather large collection of Italian albums by now and I love getting new folks into this wonderful world (btw if you dig PFM your next purchase should probably be Maxophone's selftitled release from 1975Wink).

Aaaaaanyways Punk Flute and Camel toe you say? Rightio

The following links provide a healthy dosage of ze Floyd (a bit of Camel in there from time to time though):
 

Bland Bladen (then here pt 2)
