King's X is one of my fave bands ever.

They are not even close to being prog though.

No 'Frownland', not in the "purist" sense. I was just referring to the fact that they have progressive elements in their music. Many in the prog community would agree in my opinion. Take a listen to their first two albums: 1988's 'Out Of The Silent Planet' and their magnum opus, 1989's 'Gretchen Goes To Nebraska'. I think those two albums could open some more minds to the prog rock genre, like 'Batlord' ( ). Which is the main point behind the thread as you know. Thanks for asking, sorry if I didn't clarify properly.

*the ant-eating king of prog swoops in*

Every proghead should own Images & Words: whether you dig DT or not, its a melodic masterpiece. Even has a bit of AOR cheese here and there which just makes the whole package that much better.

Batty's mentioned before he likes both Queensr˙che and Crimson Glory, but it looks like there's potential for him to end up liking Rush, King's X and Yes too. So to that end, here's some initial recommendations that come to mind that may be more up Bat's alley:

Progressive Rock
Brother Ape - A Rare Moment Of Insight (2010)
Camel - Camel (1973)
Camel - Mirage (1974)
Yes - Fragile (1971)
Yes - Close To The Edge (1972)
Yes - Relayer (1974)

Moon Safari - Lover's End (2010)

Progressive Metal
Fates Warning - Awaken The Guardian (1986)
Galactic Cowboys - Galactic Cowboys (1991)
Veni Domine - Fall Babylon Fall (1991)
Riverside - Rapid Eye Movement (2007)
Kekal - Acidity (2005)

All Camel recs are strongly seconded. They're one of the most underrated prog groups, imo.

I'd also like to know what recs would fall under "prog for prog's sake", and what is progressive in the sense of being truly experimental. I imagine anything Frownland suggests is probably gonna be pretty unique and innovative, and I'd be extra interested in stuff with that kind of intent, rather than just Yes worship. I intend to give that kind of stuff plenty of attention regardless, but I also don't want to just explore a bunch of genre stereotypes. That would kill my enthusiasm real quick.

I know a lot, if not all, of kraut rock is considered prog (I've definitely heard Amon Duul and Can referred to as prog bands). I've seen Boo Boo be pretty free with his definition of prog, even calling Radiohead prog (although if he was actually calling them prog or just saying that they embodied the experimental spirit of prog more than bands like Dream Theater I don't remember). Not that I'm looking to explore Radiohead in this thread (already listened to quite a bit of them anyway), but I'm just interested in getting a wider range of bands, even if pedantic prog purists might scoff at their being called prog.

I x3.

Sam Taylor from King's X behind the wheels. Space in Your Face is great. Not total prog though.

Bat, pick up this.
