    Also whilst SFAM may seem less heavy compared to ToT it is still very much a metal album. 7-string guitar/C standard tuning and a more heavily distorted tone isn't the only thing that makes it metal.
    Quite.

    Progressive-metal isn't 'encompassed' by progressive-rock, either. It's the 'metal' equivalent of progressive-rock, insomuch as both are 'progressive'; but 'metal' isn't a sub-genre of 'rock'.

    Also 7-String would be B standard.

    And neo-prog is usually the term considered for the more modern approach to prog when it isn't quite heavy enough to be thought of as metal.

    However on Train of Thought Petrucci uses either a 7-string (B standard) or a 6-string tuned to C with the exception of Endless Sacrifice which is a 6-string tuned to D. I think thats right.

    Edit: stream of conciousness is 6-string tuned down a half step.

    King Crimson are absolutely excellent. Don't much like Porcupine Tree though.

    oooooo a prog-rock thread!

    Pink Floyd fan over here (Dad's fault). I quite like Yes as well. And do Cream count as prog-rock?

    Any DT fans heard any Liquid Tension Experiment stuff? If not I urge you to check them out, hell even if your not a DT fan. Insane instrumental prog at its best.

    Agreed. 'Paradigm Shift' in particular.

    However, nothing quite holds a torch to this.

    2112, all parts as they each play apart in the overall 'song' so to speak.

    The entire Album is incredible, all the more so because its live.

    Is the genre defining really needed? ><

    Anyway, bands given this name are amongst my favourites, Porcupine Tree I absolutely adore. There's also the older stuff like Rush and Pink Floyd I like, and a more recent discovery in the genre which I've quite enjoyed is Oceansize. Phenomenal band.

    The sort of bands which encompass the genre I also love. Pain of Salvation is my favourite band ever, other big "Prog Metal" bands like Dream Theater and Opeth are also completely awesome.

    Btw, SunburnedCactus, I saw your last.fm, great taste!

    Dream Theater... they make me laugh :p: i'm not a big fan of prog rock actually but i have friends who are immensely immensely into the genre i am forced to listen to it :p:

    Oceansize is amazing, theyre really good (despite being too up in their arse for their own good... though someone once told me they saw the guitarist handing out flyers to promote their gigs)

    The Twilight Sad!! highly recommended!

    Mew's And the Glass Handed Kite is arguably progressive rock and would definitely recommend as these guys have huge talents.

    I would say no. I haven't listened to that much of the cure but from what I have heard then definately no.

    I recently started listening to "Forver Autumn" by Jeff Wayne - it's off his War Of the Worlds album (which is nothing more than a concept album based on the story - nothing to do with the actual film).

    Anyway, it's absolutely awesome so I highly recommend it to any prog fans. I have yet to listen to the rest of the album.

    Also, in terms of metal, Opeth anyone?

    I'd suggest listening to The Spirit Of Man next if you're not doing it in order. It's epic. It's almost 10 minutes long. :p:
