I forgot about this thread. most recent prog rock albums I've gotten are Fear of a Blank Planet and in Absentia by Porcupine Tree and Eponymous II and Unstable Matter by Spaced Out. Spaced Out's bassist is great. I don't recall if I've gotten anything else in the way of prog rock or metal other than that. Most of my recent album acquisitions have been stoner rock/metal, stoner doom metal, sludge metal, trip-hop, instrumental hip hop, and electronic.

Recently, I've gotten into the first metal band ever, Iron Butterfly, can they be classified as Prog Metal?
nah, rock. They just contributed to the formation of heavy metal along with other classic rock bands. I dunno if you could call them prog, though. I've only heard In the Garden of Eden/Inna Gada Da Vida. probably not, though.

Anyone like Gojira? They're not all over the place progressive, but I think they're prog metal.
yes. I must be crazy, though. I think I kinda liked the Way of All Flesh more than From Mars to Sirius. maybe I'll listen to 'em both again.

Anyways, prog band people should listen to.
They're good. I love avant-garde metal in general.

Should I try them?
Operation Mindcrime and Empire are awesome, but other than that, I dunno.

Does anybody here consider Orphaned Land progressive?
haven't listened. All I know is they're folk metal.
