>>53167394 If you're into metal, then Leprous and Blindead. If not, then there's no real GOAT at the moment, although I personally think Arcane, with their two new albums this year both being awesome, could get up there.
There are some great bands that are on the fringes of prog like Iamthemorning and Dream the Electric Sleep but they're not true prog
>>53167396 To be honest it's already kind of a thing here, the problem is that most of /mu/ thinks that stuff is garbage
>>53167543 >Phideaux if he puts out a new album that is good and not more of the same >Anathema hardly prog but awesome band >Gazpacho sorely overrated but their last album is good >Sylvan I'd like to say yes but they're so inconsistent. Two GOAT albums then a bunch of meh ones >Spock's Beard lol
And I'm a bit skeptical about the new stuff. I personally found VIMH to be super super dull but I think they found some awesome compositional skill with ADHD that they didn't have before that so a newer take on it could be good.
>>53167394 IMO Opeth's last album is actually good prog, the thing is most prog bands nowadays are either: a) Deathcoremathspeedprogmetuhlz b) Porcupine Tree wannabes c) Trying too hard to sound like "golden era" bands i.e. trying too hard to sound like they were recording and playing in the 70's (like Steven Wilson)
If you really are up to something different check out Polkadot Cadaver (a.ka half of Dog Fashion Disco), not actually prog rock, but actually good experimental rock/metal stuff
>>53167621 Everyone agrees that OoM or SLS is their best so Yeah I' not entirely sure how it will turn out, but since Riverside are one of the few modern good bands able to balance heavy with soft tracks I'm not too worried
>>53167642 Not someone who browses /mu/ a lot, so what I might say will potentially get me stoned to death, but since Opeth and Riverside have been mentionned, I feel compulsed to say that Dream Theater is still Dream Theater.
>>53167638 ehhhh maybe. As >>53167642 said, he can't actually be "best" whilst making 70's revival stuff.
>>53167642 You're forgetting the stuff on here >>53166989, which I personally think is the best, but it's prog-ness is up for debate. Also there's a whole bunch of good prog metal that's coming up that isn't djent/core influenced. Leprous, Code, Enslaved, Borknagar, Blindead etc
And yeah agree about Pale Communion, great shit. DFD/PC are too Bungle for me personally, although they have some absolutely awesome songs.
>>53167688 >Everyone agrees that OoM or SLS is their best so Hardly. Out of my circle of friends there's only one who disagrees with ADHD being the best. I think they're way too melodramatic and some of the melodies just plain suck. Neither are above 7.5/10 for me.
