Albums You Should Check Out Instead Of New Dream Theater

Dream Theater are good for what they are, and what they are is a stepping stone into prog. To be fair, they have some great albums (WDADU, I&W, and Awake), but once Kevin Moore left, it's been a steady decline, leaving nothing but scattered moments.
These bands are, in a way, the 'next step.' They represent the meat of prog, in albums that showcase the range of the genre.

1. Anekdoten - Vemod
2. Arcane - Known​/​Learned
3. Arena - Contagion
4. Beardfish - Sleeping In Traffic: Part Two
5. Communic - Waves of Visual Decay

My share of experime(n)tal music and other innovative stuff

I wanted to create my personal Top List for a long time and to be honest, I always considered it as some kind of cool Prog Metal, Avantgarde Metal mix. As you can see, it has become a bit more complicated. So finally, there are Unexpect and Pain Of Salvation next to Bands like Kamelot and Savatage. Also, some Non-Metal Bands got involved like Jeff Buckley and Oingo Boingo. But could you imagine how PoS would sound without Jeffs influence? Or what would have become of Mr. Bungle if it weren't for Danny Elfman and Oingo Boingo?!

1. Pain Of Salvation - The Perfect Element, Part I
2. Kalisia - Cybion
3. Savatage - Streets: A Rock Opera
4. Dog Fashion Disco - Adultery
5. Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors
