There are none god dammit. Nobody types like that any more, so please people, come up with something a little fresher to try to get some giggles out of.

Into Eternity. Right on Pandemonium for mentioning them.

I agree, but i also think that both of those bands have progressive elements.

In other words, i wouldnt class them in the genre of progressive, but i would use the word progressive to describe them. Oh man, i'm not making any sense. I need food.

just because it is not a hyper-technical heavy metalish band with wierd sounds doesn't make it non-progresive..

sure, Katatonia is doom.. prog-doom at that.
Borknagar? Black/viking prog.

I wouldn't label sonata as prog-power or whatever... just power.

But real progresive bands can't be put in a single genre!

Well, straight up Prog bands usually sound really....cheesy *Cough* Dream Theater*Cough* and usually suck, but bands that add Progressive elements are good...sometimes? I guess I was stateing my opinon of what Prog should be as fact....

If you are looking for the sophisticated progressive heavy metal I'd say Nightwish is a good band. Many of their songs are really quite simple when you take them apart - although of course some aren't easy any way you look at it - but they have a style and technical finesse to them that shows heavy metal in its finest. And Holopainens skills as a poet are impressive indeed.

Yeah, whenever I can't figure out a band's genre, I call it prog.

The person at the bottom who writes Nightwish is prog is not too bright.
