    Hi

    Any Prog fans wanna share their interests? Looking for new material to
    destroy my hearing with.

    Being that Prog bands don't usually make it mainstream (excluding Dream
    Theater or Rush), usually the only way to find out about them is via
    word of mouth (or internet). My main prog playlists are Dream Theater,
    Rush, Spock's Beard, and any member of G3's tours (Joe Satch, Eric
    Johnson, Steve Vai, etc.).

    When not listening to prog stuff, I usually stick with either
    instrumental Jazz or classic heavy metal, ala Pantera, Megadeth, early Metallica. For melodic metal, I like Evanescence, but that's about my
    limit there.

    Otherwise my listening is classic metal/hard rock; Priest, Boston
    Dokken, Loudness, Impellitteri (this could be prog I guess, or speed
    metal),

    Thoughts, Ideas, Comments, Crits!?

    Loudness!?!? Bwaa ha ha ha ha...

    No seriously, they sounded better than they looked (hard to take *them* seriously).

    Anyway, great bands mentioned there. My tastes are pretty similar. Its hard to find good prog rock. Here are some bands you might want to search for:

    Gentle Giant (yeah, they're old)
    Anglagard (swedish band, iirc, with umlauts in the name there so the spelling is a bit different)
    UK (not Wham! UK)

    and of course:

    King Crimson, Yes, ELP, and Genesis

    Here's some miscellaneous tracks from a band I played (drums) with back in the '80s: ftp://vert.synchro.net/music/DRESDEN/

    I played on OSoP.mp3 (and OSoP_alt.mp3), Agincort.mp3, and SongInE.mp3. They're all instrumental, some are keyboards only. All are pretty awesome 70s/80s era Prog-rock. I was only 16 at the time! :-)

    HEY! hehe, I liked their sound! I could have mentioned old BIG HAIR
    Nitro, but decided to save the embarasment, although they did have a
    hell of a guitar player.

    Gentle Giant (yeah, they're old)
    Anglagard (swedish band, iirc, with umlauts in the name there so the spelling is a bit different)
    UK (not Wham! UK)

    I'll check those out! Thanks for the leads

    King Crimson, Yes, ELP, and Genesis

    Yup, forgot to mention those in my post, they are included in my
    rotation most of the time.

    Hello everybody.

    Oh yes! Dream Theater scores with their new single to open up their new disc "Systematic Chaos" the track is called "Constant Motion" and it is a winner. You can get a free copy of the track on the roadrunner website. details are on the website dreamtheater.net in their news section.
