Evolution: Sailing The Seas Of Prog

Recently, instead of scouring too much the albums of the year I'm in, I decided to take a deeper journey and appreciate progressive music (prog metal/rock). While I'm still in the early beginnings of my journey, I decided to make a list to the albums I fully listen to so that I can keep charting my voyage in these vast seas. Some albums are not yet added because I need to listen them well and grab my favorites out, and some bands are on queue. I'm also eager to hear some recommendations, so thanks in advance for them!

1. Ayreon - The Human Equation
2. Barren Earth - The Devil's Resolve
3. Blotted Science - The Machinations of Dementia
4. Control Denied - The Fragile Art of Existence
5. Dream Theater - A Change Of Seasons [EP]

mz's Most Favorite Progressive Metal Albums

Progressive metal is one of my most favorite musical genres. The most interesting thing about this genre is the musical flexibility and the fact that progressive metal can come into different forms and this makes progressive metal one of the most divers genres of metal. For me, progressive metal is not just about stupid technicality and soulless show off. For this reason, my definition of progressive metal might be a little different from others. Progressive rock and metal were meant to put aside musical boundaries but nowadays it seems that being complex, technical, "intelligent", ambitious and pretentious is an inherent quality of prog metal genres. Screw this bullshits. Here are my most favorite prog metal albums. They might sometime be technical and complex but they all have their own soul in my opinion.

1. Tool - Lateralus
2. Opeth - Still Life
3. Nevermore - This Godless Endeavor
4. Green Carnation - Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness
5. Mayhem - Ordo Ad Chao

Epic Album Closers

Some albums are really good. Many of these are good all the way around. And, in many cases, there is a single song that stands out, sometimes it's the last song on the album. This is a list of those songs.

For a more in depth look at this, I've codified each into a given category:
Type 1 - 'The long song at the end.' Often the title track. These have a tendency to be most well written and dynamic pieces on the album.

1. !T.O.O.H.! - Order And Punishment (Řád A Trest)
2. Abigail Williams - Becoming
3. Agalloch - The Mantle
4. Amon Amarth - Versus The World
5. Anekdoten - Vemod

mz's Favs

1. Tool - Lateralus
2. Esoteric - The Maniacal Vale
3. Lurker Of Chalice - Lurker Of Chalice
4. Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven

Favorite Albums By My Favorite Bands

I picked one album by each of my favorite bands for this list. Keep in mind that after the first few albums I put on the list, it became increasingly difficult to figure out where to place artists in my list. Also, this is kind of how my favorite bands lie now, as far as how often I listen to them - whereas some of these bands used to be much more frequently played, years ago. But this is, more or less, a list of my favorite albums by my favorite bands.

1. Dream Theater - Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory
2. Seventh Wonder - The Great Escape
3. Symphony X - The Odyssey
4. Circus Maximus - Nine
5. Haken - Visions
