Vampillia doesn't get near enough recognition.  Powerful, epic, dissonant, post-rock.

Gold!! Make sure you get yor hands on the first 2 legend albums and then grab their RARITIES AND REVELATIONS 4disc set. Hear the mastery unfold!!!

I haven't bought their dvd yet, but I've watched a some of it on youtube. It's even more theatrically impressive than I expected.


Oooohhh live in DEUTCHLAND 2002. THE BEAST! God. They are so intense, but so awesome. I can't look away. Oh you gotta get their live album in 1995 in DEUTCHLAND as well. That's another thing, they are an incredible live band. I have so much respect for them. Also, don't you love Nathan Val Halla keys! Love how he rocks the prophet 5 synth!!

Voted for this one:

Pretty original Krautrock album that veered into jazz and electronic in a most ingenious way.
Loooooove the froggy synths of this track in particular Acide Framboise: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obQp7Zrpk4Y

Listening to Saviour Machine's first one right now. Love this stuff.

They're great. I originally found them because their singer Eric Clayton is on Ayreon's The Human Equation.  Legend Pt 1 is their best IMO.



happy to hear my fellow proggers. The album, Saviour Machine 1 is a real gem, but wait till you get into the Legend trilogy!! It will knock you on your ass. It's awesome. Saviour Machine offer up some of the highest quality of prog metal there is. In my opinion, I feel their are not too many bands out there better than them. And yes, E.C's appearance on the AYREON' project 'Human Equation' helped spark some Interest in Saviour Machine for sure. After all, E.C was the voice of reason on the album. What's not to like!?

My fave from these is probably Edges of Twilight, but it has received lots of love already.  It rates 5 stars for me with no trouble.

I voted for  In a Safe Place by  The Album Leaf.

This one of my fave mellow out albums. 
Prog On!

Haven't heard of any of these, okay Tea Party I know, but that's only from being Canadian. Smile I actually saw them live at a free festival a couple of summers ago. They were great, awesome energy.

I'd go with Natural Selection, but seeing as I only know that and the Tea Party album, I won't vote.

The Tea Party just over Lard Free. Both five star albums imo.

Supporting my chosen brand by voting for the superb recent RPI follow-up by Alphataurus - AttosecondO.

It's a glorious album, not a bad moment on it, great confident vocals too - and the vinyl version looks out of this world. I think word of mouth will eventually keep growing and it will become very appreciated. Just another wonderful example of a very respectable and exciting comeback from a classic 70s Italian band than can keep the younger guys on their toes!

Edges of Twilight I liked before even getting into prog, and still love it.
