1. Reading Zero - Satellite Sessions
Reading Zero started as an honest Queensryche-clone, but their music progressively shifted to a more original sound. 9/10
2. Heaven's Cry - Food For Thought Substitute
The lost treasure! Excellent in every way. 10/10
3. Black Symphony - Black Symphony
4. Koyaanisqatsy - From The Yearning To Burst The Perpetual Circle
The album that Dream Theater wishes to make. Monumental 10/10
5. Hydrotoxin - Oceans
6. The Beyond - Crawl
Progressive thrash from the UK, the experimental type. But it works damn well - 9/10
7. Soul Cages - Moments
8. Dali's Dilemma - Manifesto For Futurism
Often labelled as a Dream Theater-copycat band, but they actually managed to write some catchy tunes, even though the composing is off bit sometimes. 8/10
9. Digital Ruin - Listen
A really original album.
10. Everwood - Without Saving
Excellent hungarian prog metal. 9/10
11. Lord Bane - Age Of Elegance
12. Mytra - Sagittarius
Even though just an instrumental demo, it is really awesome. 9/10
13. Vauxdvhil - To Dimension Logic
An early '90 australian prog album, strongly influenced by Queensryche and Fates Warning. It really needs a couple of spins to appreciate this, but the song "Separate Ends" struck me like lightning on initial playing.
14. Abnormal Thought Patterns - Manipulation Under Anesthesia
Post-Zero Hour project of the Tipton bros.
15. End Amen - Your Last Orison
Huge progressive power/thrash release - 8,5/10
16. Megace - Inner War
Female fronted german thrash. Style is pretty close to Depressive Age.
17. Adramelch - Irae Melanox
Obscure italian prog-power band, started back in the 80's. Irae Melanox is their debut from 1988, but it still sounds fresh.
18. Red Tide - Themes Of The Cosmic Counsciousness
Sounds like Vuvr and Atheist, but incorporates a lot of hardcore elements.
19. Memento Waltz - Division By Zero
Some italian dudes are trying to play Spiral Architect. Not bad at all.
20. Scholomance - A Treatise on Love
'98 and this release. Overly epic category!
21. Inner Strength - The Strength Within
22. Wicked Maraya - Cycles
23. Sore Plexus - HaPTePHObiC
A bit hard to digest but it's a really good prog thrash release.
24. Acrania - An Uncertain Collision
A fairly new mexican band, that uses a lot of latin instruments.
25. Equirhodont - Equirhodont Grandiose Magus
26. Liquid Rain - Bright Obscurity
27. 7for4 - Diffusion
Should be a major league instrumental jazz/fusion band. New album coming this year!
28. Mind Over Four - Half Way Down
29. The Bedlam - Inside Ash
Legendary progressive/technical thrash metal from Hungary.
30. Age Of Nemesis - Eden?

I've only heard the last album. Thanks for the recommendations!
tea[m]ster - 09.03.2014 at 16:48  
Never heard of any of these. I think that's more of an indication of how much prog I listen to nowadays. Thanks for the recs.

Vauxdvhil... To Dimension Logic is an absolutely wonderful album... criminally under exposed, perhaps because the band were Australian? It's long been OOP I'm afraid, but was genuinely original.

Digital Ruin... I only ever heard their 2nd effort, 'Dwelling In The Out', which was a very bland affair and I'm lead to believe wasn't a patch on their debut, 'Listen'.

Heaven's Cry... again, I only heard the Canadian's sophomore effort, 'Primal Power Addiction' which was a similarly underwhelming experience iirc, and a downturn from the debut to which you refer, which again has been long OOP.

that's all I can help with I'm afraid... which I agree isn't much help at all..

Digital Ruin's second effort sounded a bit flat to me too, but they had something on the debut that I can't really name... makes you check out the album from time to time.
Heaven's Cry debut is mASSSIVE. Honestly the best I can pick from the list, apart from Koyaanisqatsi.

Just revisited my little notes this afternoon, will continue to add more soon.

For the rest of the guys above: cheers & enjoy discovering new stuff

A lot of bands I do not know and I only listen to Soul Cages from the list (pretty good band), Hydrtoxin and Dali's Dilemma (these days).

I listened to a Digital Ruin album, but got bored with it in the end.

Heaven's Cry sounds familiar (but then again there are so many bands with the word "heaven" in them, I might be making a mistake - Lol)

I heard only one song from Everwood.

There are tons of progressive metal bands not featured here, I might make a list one day as well.

I haven't heard most of these, thank you for making this.

It's always fun to hit the edit button on these types of lists years later and see which names go bold.

Don't worry I think it's for me I know PA for many years and some of these stuff I found there actually.

I discovered a lot of good music thanks to PA as well.

^^ guys, I wasn't trying to be patronising, I just thought it might help the thread along, that's all....

I'm pleased both of you have come across PA before; its a very good site (as long as you stay out of the forums)

If you can find it, this is a pretty good album. Her voice is killer.

Thanks! I think I've heard Liquid Rain before, but I can't remember whether I liked it or not. Going to check these out soon.

Nice list, I will definitely be checking these out! I'm really surprised that the only mutually included band in both of our lists is Liquid Rain. You should check out my list, I think you'll enjoy it Tasty Stuff Not Currently Featured On MS
