They're pretty good. Listen to them. There are three samples on their site. I made direct links for convenience:

from 2006 album Three Seats Behind A Triangle:

http://www.osadavida.art.pl/osada%20vida%20-%20flying%20time.mp3 - 6. Devotion (Part II) - Flying Time

http://www.osadavida.art.pl/osada%20vida%20-%20tension%20blossoms.mp3 - 7. Tension Blossoms

from 2004 album Osada Vida:

http://www.osadavida.art.pl/osada%20vida%20-%20in%28s%29%20thru%20mental.mp3 -
http://www.osadavida.art.pl/osada%20vida%20-%20in%28s%29%20thru%20mental.mp3 - 12. In(s) Thru Mental

I would classify them as prog metal. Their website: http://www.osadavida.art.pl/ - http://www.osadavida.art.pl/

Thanks Tuz, I added them to the PMT chart.
Is there a Myspace for them, perhaps?

Yes, I know them!!!

I even wrote about them some time ago...

If I remember well, the band was actually looking for a label that would release their recordings...

I once read about them in a local newspaper, there was a short article about the band and their upcoming concert somewhere in Silesia (I even wanted to go there after my lectures at the studies... )

I listened to the samples a week ago, and they were good.  I'll be sure to listen to them again soon.

Is that enough for you?

Sure, Tuz, don't worry (that's why I added the icon at the end).
 
I will probably have time for PMT "duties" this weekend (along adding another band there).

Fantastic band! I think Indukti might get replaced as my favorite Prog Metal band.

Prog metal? Come on, this band has more to offer, this is excellent heavy progressive (two years ago I started to support this category but Prog Archives works quite slowly Unhappy ), their heavy progrock sound, dynamics, variety and subtle musical ideas remind me of late Seventies Rush and early Ayreon (not the sound but the structure) Clap

I do agree with you Erik, but that is where they presently reside.

My problem with the prog metal category for Osada Vida is that progheads who don't like (or even hate) prog metal tend to avoid reading Osada Vida reviews, like neo-prog 'haters' avoid reading neo-prog reviews (and I know many of them!). So that's why I mentioned the category 'heavy progressive (rock)' and I am glad that Avestin did the same in his review. Perhaps that after many years of discussing about it, Prog Archives will start to use this category because it will make things more clear for progheads, Heavy Prog scouts the 'grey' borders between symphonic prog, hardrock and prog metal and will fit for new bands like Entrance, Riverside, Matraz, Toccata, Presto Ballet and Dimension X .... in my opinion.

^^^ I agree with Erik about where they should be moved, but for different reasons.
 
First I believe they have much more than just Prog Metal, they are closer to Symphonic that some bands that are in the sub-genre, so I believe there are many things going in Osada Vida to limit them in just one sub-genre.
 
Now, about the prejudices, I don't care, we won't change the reality of a band because people don't like Prog Metal or Neo Prog, if Osada Vida was a Prog Metal band exclusively, I would believe they should go in Prog metal.
 
A band is not better for being in Symphonic or Art Rock than for being in Prog Metal or Neo Prog, we shouldn't surrender to this prejudices, a band should go where they belong, and I believe Osada Vida will fit better in Art Rock now and later in Heavy Prog.
 
If somebody doesn't like Neo Prog or Prog Metal, it's their choice they are the ones who are loosing some great music.
 
Excellent band, reminds me of Rush and even Uriah Heep in some moments, pluis touches of King Crimson.

SO are you saying if they are in Prog Metal they won't get the attention you think they deserve?

I write progrock reviews for more than 15 years (for several magazines and sites) and from this experience I have discovered that it often works like this: progheads wanted to read big names in order to compare, which bands match with their (often conservative) taste and which bands match with the categories they like? So if a band is labelled as Prog Metal the prog metal 'haters' will avoid the reviews about 'Prog Metal' band Osada Vida, the same way as neo-prog 'haters' avoid the neo-prog reviews. In my opinion a substantial amount of  non Prog Metal fans will be unaware of the Symphonic Prog/Art-Rock/Heavy Prog potential of Osada Vida and that is what concerns me. I am sure Osada Vida will get a lot of attention in the category Prog Metal (and they deserve that) but I simply think that Heavy Prog will do more justice to their sound.

I can see Erik's point. I do not care for most metal, and am hesitant to check out bands with that label. Hearing Indukti changed that for me. But, that happened because I saw them at NEARfest.
