Oh well, I consider Progressive rock as little more than just the name of the genre, and Prog rock as just the short name for Progressive. If we wanted to include only the bands that have progressed rock beyond what it was before they existed, there would be very few bands within the genre... and some of them wouldn't have the caracteristics we love so much about prog (I mean, at some point Punk and 80's synth pop would have been prog).

Oh yeah, and if the name of the genre actually had to define literally the bands, then I guess there just couldn't be any Heavy Metal... I mean, what would that be?
I think you'd qualify with that helmet you're wearing in your avatar.


Cool!!! So if I put on my costume I can go and play whatever I want and it will be Metal!!!
Regardless the fact that I have absolutley no idea how to play any instrument
But what if I want to play Prog Metal? What modification would I need to do to my costume?

I would like to take this time to mention that even though I love Rush, I don't like metal, of any kind, progressive or otherwise, recorded anytime after the 70s. And Anathema f**king sucks.

Sorry, that was really mean. And quite irrelevant. But I'm not going to delete it. I'm just a little touchy on the whole "prog-metal" thing. I honestly can't seem to find any contemporary metal that I enjoy, and if I do I find some justification to classify it otherwise    The Mars Volta for instance. Wonderful group. Heavy? Quite heavy at times. Metal? Get the hell out of my apartment.

I think the relationship between hell and metal is the same as between hell and horror movies. If you watch a Romero movie you are not praising Satan as well as you don't by listening to Arcturus. 

I don't see any hell in The Human Equation, just to say one album that I think is 100% prog-metal, even if it has folk and symphonic contaminations.
