I'll just be starting this thread for progressive metal for the moment. Again, this is a pretty expansive genre, so I'll try to stick to one link per band. It will be incomplete for a while.

 

I'm not entirely sure how to organize this. At the topmost level it probably makes sense to do some sort of division between clean vocals and mixed/harsh vocals, but it might make sense to subdivide those as well. Thoughts?

@@Ki113r94 - Good catches. Wasn't entirely sure where to put Meshuggah, but they do deserve to be here. Also added Tesseract, Edge of Sanity, and Intronaut.

@@XCFRES - I'm a big fan of theirs, but unfortunately there aren't really any complete tabs of their songs. Their bassist does have a few bass playthroughs of their songs on his youtube channel, though.

 

I'm pretty busy, so I won't be able to see them (or Vektor/Voivod, or...) on their current tours, sadly.

Well, unfortunately, I was not able to do any song for the community but during the Easter holidays I hope that i can find the time to learn and do at least one. I'm happy to see that there is a page for progressive metal. I would have some suggestions for inclusion, in case people agree with my opinion. I did not see here Pink Floyd which, together with Dream Theater I would call no 1 as progressive bands, even if the styles are totally different. Then, we have Blind Guardian, Camel, Yes just to name a few. And many thanks for creating this page :)

 

Cheers

@@albatross213 only lists Progressive Metal in this thread, hence the title. Most bands you mentioned are in the Progressive Rock thread.
