Progressive metal

Progressive metal is a subgenre of heavy metal, which blends the powerful, guitar-driven sound of metal with the complex compositional structures, odd time signatures, and intricate instrumental playing of progressive rock. Progressive metal is guitar-driven and often features varying (and sometimes sudden) changes in time signatures. The genre is also known for lending itself to complex and extended guitar solos. Consequently, progressive metal songs can become relatively long. Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: Savatage

    Lately I've been wishing that this genre had the great production of much shredding, it really dilutes the talent of the performers.

    v that's true, like "Volumes" nothing progressive about them haha.... but there are some really good ones. For example, I do respect bands like Tesseract & The Contortionist.

    Funny to see some unoriginal, repetitive and shitty djent/metalcore bands ("oh polymetric riffing and drumming, SO PROG XDXD") get under the prog metal label.
