Art rock, prog rock, psychedelic rock......whatever the term, it's been with us since the late 1960s and has developed subgenres of its own. From such forerunners as King Crimson, Yes, ELP, Genesis an Pink Floyd to later standard bearers such as Rush, Marillion, Queensryche, Dream Theater, Tool and Fates Warning, progressive rock and metal has become a self-sustaining force regardless of the current music trends.

What are your favorite progressive bands and why?

I'm out the loop. A couple years back I heard there was some mega-festival in Virginia somewhere and they had gotten Happy the Man to get back together to do a gig. :bigbow: I really don't know anything after the early 80's except maybe Marillion.

Gordian Knot. Members of King Crimson and Dream Theater join Sean Malone and Sean Reinert. No singing, which would be a good thing for Dream Theater. :D hehe

ArmoredNOSaint nailed a few of my favorite Prog Metal bands. Specifically Symphony X. Romeo is a mean shredder. I also dig on Spock's Beard, have a couple of their cd's as well as Savatage.

A few others are Evergrey (saw them at HOB last year), Fates Warning (as mentioned above), LTE, and I'd like to throw in Control Denied, Chuck Schuldiner's project after Death. They seemed to want to go in a prog direction before his untimely demise.
