I think I have found what I would concider the BEST Progressive Metal Band I could, I am a fan of DT, LTE, Tony MacAlpine, Virgil Donati, Via, Satriani, all the famous ones... But about a Year and a half ago I discovered the ULTIMATE band, Insane Chops, but not flashy-Great Singer, unlike MOST prog bands... DT especially... My Band's Name? Pain of Salvation. I have all of their cd's but, I have been listening to "The Perfect Element Pt.1" Exclusively for about 4 Months Straight! NO DAMN JOKE AT ALL, Roughly 14-15 WEEKS of ONE CD, it IS the best album I have ever heard in my entire life, and I dont think I will ever hear a band Write soo perfectly... SO If you are into Prog, Metal, or just anything that's Good... Just go buy some Pain of Salvation, "The Perfect Element Pt.1" is MY favorite CD, but all of them are good. (I didnt Forget Rush) BTW, The bassist uses a Fretless 6 string, with an 11(?) Piece Neck... It sounds SOO good, I love that bass!
