Thumbs up: +201
Limited to one album per band and only those featured on Metal Storm.
I feel these albums demonstrate certain qualities that can be of enjoyment to someone who is interested in avantgarde, experimental, extreme, fusion, jazz, post rock, and technical forms of metal.

Impressive list. I would only say two things. 1, I prefer Moonsorrow's earlier stuff to V. They're still extremely progressive, but more varied and interesting. 2, I for the life of me can't understand the boners for Still Life. So many people love that album and I have to say it is my least favorite. I find it extremely dull. I will always recommend My Arms, Your Hearse and of course Blackwater Park. Just my opinions.

I too prefer Voimasta and Kivenkantaja to V but for the sake of a prog-focused list I included the latter.

It was either Still Life or Blackwater for the list, but I feel SL is a better introduction to all facets of their sound. It is almost a perfect blend of the two albums you mentioned and a good transition point.

Now that you have my rationale, I will promise to take these critiques into account on the next update. I really appreciate the feedback, so thank you.

Every time some one talks about Still life without mentioning Opeth, I'm instantly thinking about Van der Graaf Generator (they too have an album called Still life) and then I think - wow people are listening to VDGG, cool!!!!!!!

I noticed that there are two "]"s here:

Rishloo - Feathergun
2009 [Alternative metal, Progressive metal]]

Also you might want to change that to their new album, Living As Ghosts With Buildings As Teeth. It's better and more accessible imo

Good catch! Thank you for letting me know.

I was actually thinking of swapping it out for Eidolon
I will have to listen to "Living As Ghosts" more now and take it into consideration.

No problem

Interesting choice... I in turn will have a listen to Eidolon again

Good call thinking of swapping it out for Eidolon. Definitely give their newest a shot because I think it's their best. Regardless of what decision you make, I'm glad Rishloo made the cut.

Great list. I miss in it Persefone, but I have to tell you have an excellent taste for prog music

Very interesting and accurate guide!, though it has a lot of metal. It mentions every masterpiece from my favourite bands. I cant deny Progressive Metal is my favourite genre but theres to add bands from the golden era (the 70s) and from the modern era (90s - now), like Anglagard, Echolyn, Big Big Train, Anubis, A.C.T, Birds and Buildings, Moon Safari, The Dear Hunter, The Gourishankar (this is a really personal choice), Sylvan, Karmakanic, Nemo, just to mention some of the most important.

p.s: About the Rishloo discussion hah, I ve heard all of their albums and still think "Feathergun" is their best, I can listen to it endlessly, though their last one is really special too but not in the same level.

Thank you for the praise! The reason I don't include many of those bands is that I only include those that are featured on Metal Storm. I will look into placing Karmakanic, as I did not know they were on here. Expect an update soon!
