Hey everyone. This is my first post. I realised through time i spend alot of my time listening to music and attend concerts and shows. I mean lets get serious here. It's always a great time to attend a music festival with some delicious bud rolled. I personnally enjoy listening to progressive metal. I mean to the average stoner rocker people would mention Pink Floyd. Witch is also prog rock. If anyone that would know awesome bands to share with us in the prog section of music then let them on here.

Check out this band : Animals as Leaders

Tosin Abasi is the lead guitarist (8 strings) next to Javier Reyes (8 strings). He's amazing. And this video is actually quite enjoyable to watch. Very Technical Instrumental prog metal. no vocals.

They are some of the coolest dudes you will ever meet if you get a chance. Last time they were in boise, right before the release of intrinsic. Me and a friend hot boxed their van with them and talked about everything from lucid dreams to neat music. Some of the chillest dudes to smoke with for sure.

Gotta love some Periphery!

Another smoke story, but i make sure to smokeout hatt halpern everytime they are here. Showed me some new periphery prepro that didnt make it to the release of periphery 2, and new veil of maya before eclipse was released.

Now for epic prog in the vein of AAL, The contortionist, ect

good friends and the "sister band" of the contortionist

LAST CHANCE TO REASON!!! There tron-esque (lyrically) concept album Level 2. They are in the studio right now working on level 3.

If you are already Not listening to Prog metal elites Between the buried and me. There is something wrong with you. They just release last week there GREATEST album to date The parallax 2 :future sequence. Over an hour the the finishs the greatest prog metal concept album in history.

The uk's saftey fire has been tearing it up for over a year and lots of sick tours and the neat release. The vocals take getting used to. but i personally love them now.
[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROR4KWUA9rg]THE SAFETY FIRE - Huge Hammers (OFFICIAL VIDEO) - YouTube[/ame]

Possibly the greatest singer in super progs PROTEST THE HERO dizzing riffage mixed with super vocal melodys.
[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKZ-eKBJ9dw&feature=relmfu]Protest The Hero - C'est La Vie (Official Video) - YouTube[/ame]

Devin townsend is possibly one of the greatest musicians i have ever come across. Each release is a whole different genre. Dont let his silly songs names and stuff put you off. It was the dumb reason i never got into him before. But i promise he is a must for your ears.

If you have never heard cynic......... Easily the contortionists biggest influence on the new CD (from my perspective)
[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gw-6IIBXNSQ]Cynic - The Space For This - YouTube[/ame]

Also periphery 2 IS SUPER PROGGY goodness makes the first cd sound like garbage

Orphaned Land are basically a Israeli Opeth, with eastern folk influences.

Metulz starts around 1:30 but I think the intro is beautiful.

i hyped the new Btbam cd up wayyyy to much and it didnt live up to my expectations.

Dont get me wrong its still amazing - but some of the songs just dont flow. it made me realize the only reason I listen to btbam is for dan briggs's amazing bass lines.

Bloom is my personal favorite from the album.

ive not heard it yet, but dan briggs is tight at bass. imo i prefer his stuff with the band orbs (plays guitar instead of bass tho), its alot more pop-py, not really metal but more post hardcore, got some guy from fear before on vocals, evryone check them out if you like progressive shit.
