Hi all. Just joined this as I could use some great recommendations. So, I'd say my favorite prog band is Camel. I really like the rock/jazz vibe, the pastoral stuff (Snow Goose) ... just about everything.

I really never sought out newer prog bands ... so who would you recommend I check out, taking what I wrote above into account.

Thanks! Looking forward to some new music.

Hey there Erik, welcome to the Archives!

This could be an instant recommendation for you, an Israeli instrumental band called Sanhedrin that have sadly on made this one album to date, but it's a bit of a minor modern classic if you dig the Camel sound. See how you go:

Thank you! I (think I've) heard of them, but never came across the music. I'll check it out.

The obvious ones, that you are likely to know already, would be Pink Floyd and Genesis. A little less known, Renaissance, Harmonium, Anthony Phillips' "The Geese and the Ghost" (the only one I know from him, but there may be other fitting albums from him as well). And about newer bands, Big Big Train (specially the English Electric ones, I guess). And I know just about nothing from Canterbury, but I guess if someone could point you in the right direction that one could be right for you too.

Oh, I love those ones too. Just listening to "Return to Ommadawn" right now. It has really grown on me, specially side one. Indeed I think it's worthy of his 70's masterpieces.

I always thought Nick Barret (Pendragon)  closely matches Andy Latimer (Camel) on guitars.  But obviously Andy is has that unique style that no guitar player can match!...

Maneige and Opus 5 are highly recommended bands!........

Camel fans will find something to love in these bands:

Asia Minor
Willowglass
Rousseau
Quidam
Hostsonaten

You can check the Progarchives page of them to get more idea about their albums.

Does this effectively mean that you've been here on PA for so many years without ever listening to 9 Feet Underground?
I know your tastes lie with the more melodic natured acts and that most other Canterbury bands tend to lose their marbles for a bit with added jazz and avant touches, but Caravan is about as friendly and melodic as prog rock gets. Just a recommendation on my behalf

Gotic - Escenes
Ragnarok - s/t from 1977 - the Swedish band, don't confuse with several other bands with the same name or you may get metal!
John G. Perry - Sunset Wading (a little Canterbury, but gently)
Dan Ar Bras - Douar Nevez (Bretonne prog folk but I think it may do it for you)

That's a good call.
