best progressive metal bands

what are some progressive metal bands you guys like besides opeth of course? opeth are the best hands down. i also like when day descends if you havent heard em, a lot of similarities to opeth but all instrumental. what are some progressive acts that incorporate a lot of acoustic elements into their music?

Ignorance DRIPS from your post. Allow me to point it out.

"Opeth are the best hands down" - Thats just stupid. They are good, but until you find a fair, universal method of judging bands, don't tell me who is the best.

"acts that incorporate a lot of acoustic elements into their music" - Oh, is that the only way to be progressive? I've been lied to for a long time.

Coroner
Hourglass (only a few good parts in an album, probably not worth looking into)
Mekong Delta
Paradox
Prototype
Spiral Architect
Toxik
Watchtower

both agalloch and borknagar are progressive steve, borknagar is 100% progressive except their first two cds. agalloch have long songs with plenty of techincal aspects. just because it doesnt sound like spiral architect doesnt mean it isnt progressive! hear hear to the arcturus, they are definitely good prog. vintersorgs later albums are also (the focusing blur beats you over the head with how prog it is). control denied is good, dan swanos moontower album is proggy, sculptured (offshoot of agalloch, but way proggier.) spastic ink are also in your face prog

edit

farmakon and ephel duath are two more

Pain of Salvation's and Nevermore's entire catalogues are progressive music essentials!

Agalloch
Ark
Symphony X
Dream Theater
Andromeda
Green Carnation
Into Eternity
Queensryche if you want old school
Derek Sherinian
Devin Townsend
Evergrey
The Flower Kings if you want good rock (they also feature Daniel Gildenlöw from Pain of Salvation as a member)
Kalmahswamp turned me on Wastefall even though I don't have their albums yet
The last Emperor CD
Borknagar
Therion
Dark Suns
Cynic
Winds
Age of Silence
Orphaned Land
Sigh

Do you need anymore?

its what it sounds like. its not repetitive metal (exodus, sodom, darkthrone.) its music that is techinical, evolves, and changes. progressive metal also can refer to a bands whole career, like death and cryptopsy, who became more and more techincal

so Avenged Sevenfold is progressive then? They play alot of different riffs and their songs change alot? I hate all the genre's people try too hard to make genres for bands.
