Hello guys I'm new in this forum, and i've been listening to prog heavily in the last month and a half. I listen a lot of music, so i listened a lot of KC, ELP, PF, Eloy, Jethro Tull and many other i don't even recall

Now, i have listened to SKY2 ALBUM from the BAND SKY, and i love it.

So, my question is. Can you recommend me INSTRUMENTAL PROGRESSIVE ROCK ALBUMS AND/OR INSTRUMENTAL PROGRESSIVE ROCK BANDS

Thanks, i know you guys know a lot more of prog than me, so you can help me out Big smile

Hello!

May I recommend SECRET OYSTER, a Danish band from the 1970s that is listed here under Jazz Rock/Fusion, but they really sound more like Camel or Canterbury prog but with a lead sax player.  They're awesome.

The Enid (Except they added some poor vocals in the 80s, so stick to their 70s material for good instrumental. Though their newest album has a great vocalist.)
The Samuel Jackson Five (Though their newest album has some occasional vocals)

Camel's album The Snow Goose is a masterpiece
I see Mike Oldfield has already been mentioned.  I'd start with Tubular Bells or Ommadawn
A lot of (but not all) of Anthony Phillips work is instrumental.  Slow Dance is a particular favorite.  1984 is a pretty good electronic instrumental album. 
National Health is almost all instrumental - Queues and Cures is excellent as is their s/t debut.
For some weirdness you could try some Univers Zero

Yeah. +1 to Ommadawn.

Anything before his Discovery album is worth listening to. Discovery is almost all pop songs (although To France is, in my opinion, a very good song). The one instrumental, The Lake, took me a while to warm to.

Anything after that, except for Amarok and Tubular Bells III, is, in my opinion, patchy at best, heading down to dreadful.

Mahavishnu Orchestra - The Inner Mounting Flame, Birds of Fire
Perhaps - Volume One

Mike Oldfield - anything pre-Discovery

Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven, F#A#Infinity (voice samples, but they add A LOT)

There are lyrics to that one song on Third, they're not wordless vocals.

Good call on Future Kings of England and Godspeed You Black Emperor.

Rick Wakeman's "Six Wives of Henry the VIII", and then perhaps "Criminal Record". Focus's "Hamburger Concerto". And I agree with Mike Oldfield too, the first 4 albums.

Now that I listen to Moon in June again, you're absolutely correct.

Animals as Leaders
An Endless Sporadic (I only reccommend their first EP Ameliorate)
Explosions in the Sky
Relocator
The Fierce and the Dead (they can be difficult to get into)
Gru (one-man band. Only has one album called Cosmogenesis)

You can also do pretty well by YouTube searching 'instrumental prog playlist.' Smile
