Made this after I realised that apparently only a few discuss prog metal anymore.
In case you were wondering, the only message icon I felt this thread needed was the nuke icon. Wink
All sub-genres of the great genre welcome:
Progressive Metal
Experimental/Post Metal
Extreme/Tech Metal
Heavy Progressive Rock, I think, should be welcome here too.
---
I hope there will be many posts/reccomendations/appreciation. I probably won't post much here, I'd rather see what people have to say.
A song by a modern prog metal band, Pyramid Theorem, that needs more appreciation.

what is retro progressive metal?
what is heavy progressive rock? Do you mean heavy-prog? If yes, then ok.

Yes, I was attempting to sound official. LOL
By retro I mean original/normal prog metal. Shall I change it to just prog metal? Confused

I call it progressive metal. 
I used to call something like Angra or Pagan's Mind or Symphony X progressive power, or prog-power. 
If there was more power metal than prog, it was power-prog. But still it's progressive metal. Smile

Extreme progressive metal to me is progressive death metal, progressive thrash and progressive black metal. Obviously. Smile

^Changed to simply progressive metal. After all, not all of it is retro.

since I mentioned prog-power, here is a song from Magnitude 9, American band that created music from 1998 to 2004. Guitarist Rob Johnson and vocalist Corey Brown are the main reasons to check the band out.

There are just three Progressive Metal bands I'm familiar with and really like:- Ayreon; Dream Theater; & Porcupine Tree.
 
I'm more of a Symphonic Metal fan, with three particular favourites on my epic wish list of temptations tonight:- Epica; Nightwish; & Within Temptation.

My top suggestions are from the more extreme side of prog metal (which I think gets overlooked):
Between the Buried and Me and The Dillinger Escape Plan. Both are very powerful and original, and probably not so obvious (like Opeth and Gojira, I guess).
I'm on the outside looking inside

I'm gonna recommend a rather obscure gem. This band is quite old and is not active anymore. They have 2 albums. The debut is not prog, but the sophomore I'm putting here definitely is. Kinda like Pagan's Mind that doesn't utilize power metal elements in their music. Fans of Ayreon can also check it out.

nice choice, a good band. 
Please do not post full length albums. 
Songs are good enough, the point is I guess is to make an idea what the band sounds like and take it from there.

^ Well, I didn't see any restrictions in the original post, as long as what we put is prog metal.

Also, one can easily stop listening after a song or two. I think it is not a big deal to post full albums. If someone wants others to listen to a specific song, s/he can just post it. Otherwise sharing full-length albums should not be a problem.

the original post has just a song, an epic, not a full album. 
If the admins have the rule of not posting full albums, I for one obey it.

^ The original post has just a song, but it doesn't say "this is the format".

Do the admins have such a rule? It is not a rhetorical question. If they do, I'll surely obey.

Logan's words in a recent thread:
"It has been the expectation and request that people avoid posting full album videos (embeds) and significant material from albums (so not many tracks from an album) at the forums generally (not just this topic) without permission/allowance from the artists or labels. I would think that a hyperlink may be preferable (say to bandcamp, spotify or youtube) if wishing to exhibit more than a portion. This is partially out of respect for the artists, not just any risk of complaints, not all of which have approved of people sharing music this way. When it's come to formal evaluation for placement, full album embeds have been more common."

This band is a bit off the radar when discussing prog-metal. Love this album.

Not discussed much here, occasionally, but that's cause most of the progressive metal-heads Big smile have moved over to the PA sister site Metal Music Archives MMA (http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/)........and as well there is a sister Jazz site Jazz Music Archives JMA (http://www.jazzmusicarchives.com/)

I visit both, some great stuff there.
