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.

Consequently, progressive metal songs can become relatively long. Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: Protest the Hero
