Would you guys consider Secret Chiefs 3 a progressive band?   It has a lot of Middle Eastern influences but has significant time changes, awesome transitions, etc.  No vocals though, except for the first album. Maybe the quesion is can you be progressive without vocals?  I think so because there are so many progressive instrumentals out there.  What are your thoughts?

There are tons and tons of non-vocal prog bands.

I hope Maani doesn't move this to non-prog music since they aren't in the archive, because they're definitely a progressive band...

Stop questioning te 'proginess' of bands. If you like 'em - listen - your taste should be even wider than just prog-rock.

They sound like nobody else, even in the avant-prog area and that's excellent.

Prog of course can be instrumental.

Never heard of them, but they sound rather good. As for no vocals = no prog - have no fear, there are countless progressive bands who play nothing but instrumentals.

Oh, and you know it'll get moved, MO.

vogre:  It's quite clear why proginess needs to be questioned on this forum.  Until changes are made, we're not allowed to discuss bands that don't appear in these archives on this particular forum.  I'm not sure how long the process takes; I've been waiting on Wastefall for months, despite having submitted volumes of required info.  But I'd love to be able to discuss them without them being moved to non-prog music.

It seriously IS a problem...  how are we to discuss new prog bands that pop up before they are included?  Wouldn't this forum be the IDEAL place to discuss a prog group that released its debut recently?  So we can discover and discuss new groups we didn't know about before?  Isn't that the POINT of ProgArchives, to learn and discuss?  This shouldn't be limited to acts that are only in the Archives, that takes time to add...  I can understand taking to add groups to the archive, but there is NO reason to take actions to DISCOURAGE discussion of new bands/albums.
