How does everyone feel about wehther this band is prog or not? I only have Ogre Tones and Gretchen Goes To Nebraska.  Judging from those 2 id say they are prog related but not fully prog.
If anyone knows where I can get a copy of some Flute and Voice (Indo-Prog/Raga Rock) albums please PM me! Many thanks!

I´m ashamed to say I still haven´t heard any of their music. Ritchie Blackmore is a big fan of King´s X though, so obviously I will have to check them out.

in my opinion they have this groove rock vibe with a bit of prog in them. Some say they are the pioneers of Groove rock and this site even says that they are prog metal combined with grunge but i would say they are a bit more on the groove rock side than prog metal

The band: Prog-Related, the early albums (up to Faith-Hope-Love): Art Rock.

Gretchen is probably thier only full fledged Art-Rock album other than that at their best they were prog-related and overall they just shouldnt be included

Seconded.  This band is a tough call for me.  Those early albums are quite good.

I've only got Dogman and wouldn't consider it even remotely related in any way to prog... maybe it's not a great representation of their sound though.

No, not really. Dogman is cool ... but more bluesy and less prog than the early albums. I'd suggest to start with the debut ... awesome album!

I've allways heard them referred to as Progressive Metal. I'm not sure if it's accuarate or not since I've never really listened to them before. But, I thought that was the general assessment of them.

This made me remember something.  This is from this site's definition of prog metal:

"Two bands that are commonly identified as progressive metal, King's X and Opeth, are at opposite ends of the sonic spectrum to one another. King's X are a group influenced very heavily by softer mainstream rock and grunge, whereas Opeth's growling vocals and ultra heavy guitars usually see them cited as death metal."

I certainly never thought of King's X as metal in any way, progressive or otherwise.  But why are they listed as some sort of prog metal exemplar when they're not even in the archives? Confused

By the way, King's X is pretty sweet, in particular the early stuff.

I have many of their albums, and I really enjoy them. I definitely think they belong here, under Prog Related.

On a side note... Ty Tabor is an incredible guitarist, and has one of the most ridiculously awesome tones I've ever heard, IMO.

Have all their albums up through Manic Moonlight and would have to say no.  Love them and their sound.  TyTabor is an awesome musician as are the other two and their vocal harmonies are outstanding.  I just don't think of them as prog.
