This is the list of my favourite progressive metal/rock albums of the decade. I decided to do this list because a new decade is starting, so it's a good time to look back. Beware, this is not a "best progressive metal albums of the decade" list, it's my favourites, not necessarily the ones that were the best for everyone else or me.

As I recall this list introduced me to the wonderful In Mourning, many thanks for that and super list! Still need to check out Green Carnation.

This list made me discover Riverside - Thank you for that! I would have missed awesome music.
BloodTears - 09.09.2011 at 10:45  
I'm glad people discovered some bands because of this list. I really didn't know it would make a difference

Also, don't thank me! It is you ultimately that enjoys the bands.

Nice list.. but I was wondered when I didn't see Blackfield above.. they're really awesome band. the most similar band to Porcupine Tree.

I never really got into them big time, I thought their first two records were good but not groundbreaking. They didn't leave a mark on me, that's why they are not on the list

Do you mean "A Fair Dream Gone Mad"? If so, this list is with albums from the last decade and so it doesn't fit

Yes, I only noticed months later after publishing this list. I guess it's an intruder, still amazing album though

Wtf, no Disillusion - Back to Times of Splendor? That one is easily one of the best progressive metal albums I've heard. But then again, I'm not that much into the genre.
