Where have I been?

Postby miamiscot » 01 Jul 2014, 18:11

Having given up on Prog years ago, I ran across "Love Supreme" on YouTube about three months ago and I am seriously hooked. I have all 12 studio albums and love them all. Now I'm delving into The Tangent, Karmakanic, Agents Of Mercy, anything Flower Kings related. So I've been going back and listening to Spock's Beard, Glass Hammer, Anglgard, etc. All bands I have tried to get into in the past but really couldn't. Hopefully TFK's will be my gateway back into modern prog (especially symphonic prog.)

Any suggestions?

Well, there is a lot of very good stuff in modern prog. I really love some prog bands of the 70's and the 90's and the 00's and the 10's... :P

Maybe you should try:

An Endless Sporadic - An endless sporadic - 2009
Birds and Buildings - Bantam to Behemoth - 2008 (hard to find, but I can help you)
Frost* - Milliontown - 2006
Frost* - Experiments in mass appeal - 2008
Steve Hackett - To watch the storms - 2003
Kaipa - Keyholder - 2003
Kaipa - In the wake of evolution - 2010
Lalle Larsson - Infinity of worlds - 2010
Motorpsycho - Heavy metal fruit - 2010
Motorpsycho - Behind the sun - 2014
White Willow - Sacrament - 2000
White Willow - Storm season - 2004
Steven Wilson - The raven that refused to sing (and other stories) - 2013

... And if you're also into the prog metal scene, let's try:

Caligula's Horse - Moments from Ephemeral City - 2011
Caligula's Horse - The Tide, the Thief & River's End - 2013
Circle of Illusion - Jeremias - 2013 (also hard to find, but I can help you)
Haken - Visions - 2011
Haken - The mountain - 2013
Pain of Salvation - The perfect element - 2000
Pain of Salvation - Remedy lane - 2002
Pain of Salvation - Be - 2004

Those are really fantastic prog rock (or prog metal) albums from the 2000's. I'm pretty sure you'll like them all! 8-)

Welcome to the forum, Scot.

I'm sorry to say that since you have already discovered the Flower Kings, it'll be all downhill from here...

...but - having said that - fortunately there are still several truly worthwhile groups for you to check out on your way down. I would suggest starting with Big Big Train (if you haven't done that already, of course). Prog on (and on and on)!

Welcome Scott! As well as the other artists my illustrious co-forumists suggest, you could also try (if you like neo-prog): Arena, Pendragon and IQ, all excellent bands. Have you listened to Transatlantic yet? You should really like them, a modern supergroup consisting of Roine Stolt, Neal Morse, Pete Trewavas (Marillion) and Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater). Also, as mentioned before, Kaipa, who have had two distinct eras, the 'classic' 70s stuff (again with Stolt) and the recent reformed band from the early 2000s to now. (New album due this year too!) There's loads of stuff out there, as always, with varying quality, but there are some gems to be found still. ;)

Okay!!!

I agree with Haken, IQ and Transatlantic so far. Very good.

Next up: Big Big Train. I'll let you know hat I think of them.

A.C.T (from Sweden) and Major Parkinson (from Norway) are two pretty entertaining bands too!!

Try them, you won't regret it! ;)
