Have a look at this prog timeline I created:



Some genres are still missing. I am trying to create a simple view of the "prog universe" ... I don't want to make it too detailed, but I also want to show the important differences between the styles.

I like it. I've wanted to do something like this myself for quie a while. I particularily like how you've also marked a core period of some styles.

Very interesting MIke. Is it fair to say that some of the metal categories you have included are not considered Prog on this site?

I think "technical" and "shred" metal began in the late 1980s - and would dispute some of the "core" timelines - but great 1st attempt!

^ Thanks! Could you name some of these early tech/shred metal bands/albums?

I agree that the "core" timelines need to be adjusted ... Neo prog begins a bit too early for example.

Excellent!

However, my usual comment: careful with that word 'fusion'!
Indo jazz fusion from 1965 (e.g. Harriott-Mayer Indo-Jazz Fusion Double Quintet) - which allows you bring in Indo-prog......
US proto jazz rock from 1966 (e.g. Free Spirits)
UK proto jazz rock from 1963 (e.g. Graham Bond, Georgie Fame)
First distinct jazz rock album Emergency by Lifetime - possibly - 1968. Soft Machine Volume 2 clearly shows the cross over from psychedelic to jazz rock fusion

In fact Mike you have inspired me to make a more detailed time-line for jazz fusion, bringing in acid jazz, fuzac, (god forbid) smooth jazz, and that more exciting and often cutting edge jazz fusion dating from the 90's: nu.fusion, drum'n'bass jazz, rap jazz, nu.jazz, etc.

I suspect what you mean by power prog, but the term was used initially to desribe bands like Savatage and Crimson Glory in the eighties/early nineties, so saying it's a post-'95 affair is not really exact. Then again, I realise you have a totally different style in mind, but think about where the said bands would fit in that case.

Moreover, I have seen Rush frequently categorized as both heavy metal and progressive rock (and rightly so, IMO, since they fused elements of both styles), so isn't it fair to say that - if not full-blown prog metal as we know it now - they are at least proto-prog metal?

Interesting chart though, if a little "crowded". Tongue On the other hand, at least that's a good way to show nay-sayers that prog is still "alive" in the 21st century! LOL

Mike,

Nice first shot - although I get rashes from the moniker Nu-Prog, like I got a couple of years ago with Nu-Metal. Oh well....

Are you picking the genres from Progtology or common use, or are you naming them specifically for this chart?

I must say I like your time line a lot, even when some things like Canterbury are missing Clap

I don't like the naming of "nu prog," since it makes it like it's drawing a parallel to nu metal, which is just a good concept simplified and made formulaic. Also, I tend to think prog is a lot more musical than metal, so it really can't be simplified and "punk-ized." Also, The Mars Volta is not punk prog.
