I would say yes. They have one album, IMO it's al beautiful album and I would consider them as progressive metal.Wink

I have their album, and though it does not appeal to me too much, I do see it virtues. I am not sure about them being here, but I need to relisten to it again carefully (the last time I remember thinking about this and concluded that while there is some merit in including them, overall there is no justification for it). Smile But obviously, if they are proposed, Prog-Metal is the obvious place to suggest.
 
Do you know if they are planning another release?

I've heard a feew songs from them but I'm not sure whether or not they are prog. I liked the songs though.

I think the Prog-metal team rejected this band some time ago, I seem to remember seeing it on the chart at the start of the year having been rejected.
Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005

I own the album, bought it about a month ago on one of their concerts. It's a very good album, if you take away the silly talking stuff in between the musical tracks. 
The best tracks are (imo) The Betrayal and The Resurrection. 
According to me it's definitively Prog. According to the charts on Mike's site
(http://www.progtology.com/home/progarchives/progmetalchart.xhtml) they are cleared for entry by the progmetal team.
A few days ago I put a (short) review of the album (Unspoken Words) on Mike's site:

They are considered to be a prog-metal band and I've seen them live a few weeks ago on "PROG METAL night" together with Riverside and Vanden Plas and it definitely rocked Wink

I'm not too fond of their music, but they deserve a place on the archives.
Interested in my reviews?
You can find them HERE

Good news for the Aurora Project and their fans...now what about an unquestionably progressive metal band; The F***ing Champs. Yes, I know they've been rejected but I bet someday we'll see them here.

Neo-proggers? Well if you call a band like Riverside neo then maybe you're right. I'd personally put them in metal allthough they are on the edge of metal-neo-space. I have a feeling that a lot of modern prog bands are moving in this direction....it's who claims them first Smile
