Everyone has their favorite prog metal bands that little to nobody they know is largely aware of. I'll get things started by sharing Vangough as a favorite of mine.

Clandestine. The only prog metal band I listen to, and I want them to get more recognition.

I don't know if they are unknown but I never heard someone talk about them here. 

Counter World Experience (they are listed here in Tech/extreme progmetal but it's still Progmetal hehe) they really worth attention

EDIT: Octopus are pretty amazing too !!

They're ALL relatively unknown, unless their name is Rush or Dream Theater, really.

Favorite is Indukti, hands down. Also should mention Dianoya. I did listen to the Clandestine tracks and I like, so thanks for the intro!

Dream Theater. Very unknown. I think they deserve more recognition.

Sleep for Jerusalem.  Okay, it's stoner doom metal.

Haha, well, I'd agree that they deserve more!  They should've won that Grammy that those God-awful Foo FIghters won, for one thing! LOL

Foo Fighters aren't bad. Unlike DT, they have a singer.

Two Italian bands spring to mind:
ZU and Ephel Duath.
Progressive like a pair of meat-hook sandals.

Soooooooo repetetive. The only thing the drummer in FF does is "dum-pa-dum-pa-dum-pa-dum-pa" for five whole minutes while the guitarist just plays standard chords all like "wha-wha-wha-wha-wha-wha"...just kill me.

I never do it by choice...but they play their stupid songs at my gym every day and sometimes I forget my headphones and have to endure the torture of repetitive pop... *gag* "music".
