Favourite Song(s) From My Favourite Band(s)

So I had this idea about listing my song picks from my favourite bands. It started out by being just one but I listed three songs when I couldn't just name one. Sounded like a fun musical exercise when I first thought about it but in reality it just shows me it is very difficult to actually pick the songs. (Will update when necessary)

1. Dream Theater - Lifting Shadows Off A Dream, The Killing Hand, Under A Glass Moon
2. Pure Reason Revolution - Bullits Dominae, Disconnect
3. Grayceon - We Can, Shellmounds
4. Kylesa - Where The Horizon Unfolds, Running Red
5. Opeth - Serenity Painted Death, Forest Of October, April Ethereal

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.

1. Riverside - Out Of Myself
2. Porcupine Tree - In Absentia
3. Riverside - Second Life Syndrome
4. Porcupine Tree - Deadwing
5. Opeth - Blackwater Park
