TOP 5 PROG LIST (RIGHT NOW)? So, I had this fun idea, to ask everyone what their PERSONAL top 5 prog songs are right now (from any era). I expect this to really vary, because the genre has so many differences, from sometimes soft Gabriel-era Genesis to Death Metal Vocal Opeth, and from sometimes fun and light-hearted Haken to completely melancholy Steven Wilson. Here's my (only personal) 5 I would take with me anywhere if I only had to choose from: 5) Riverside - Second Life Syndrome 4) Haken - The Architect 3) Yes - The Gates of Delirium 2) Transatlantic - Stranger in Your Soul 1) Dream Theater - Breaking All Illusions I'm sure I'm missing many . . . and I only included one by each artist. How about you guys?

Haken's new single "Prosthetic" ! What does everyone think of their new sound on this song? Curious to know! It's not entirely different, but if the rest of the album is like this they're definitely evolving as a band. ;) One quote on the YT comments I loved about the new music: "Now this is the chocolate cake that John Petrucci was talking about." If anyone gets the reference there, by the way, they get a MILLION prog points today. lol :D

Not that I'm much of a Facebook user beyond keeping tabs with my extended family and some friends, but I would recommend any Prog fan on Kompoz check out Jordan Rudess's Facebook page every day at 4pm eastern to watch him put on an at-home piano concert. Just tuned in for the first time and it was amazing! No worries if nobody is into that, but I thought it might be a good heads-up to the group. :D

Sunday's #CurrentProgJam . . . I encourage you guys to share every Sunday, what you've been currently jamming to in the prog world. I've been captivated by this specific track off the new Sons of Apollo album. I know sriracha has posted their covers of Pink Floyd, etc... before, but I was wondering how many of you have been keeping track of their original stuff? Their hit single this year was the smashing "Goodbye Divinity," but this other song on the album has found a special place on my weekly listens. Take a look, and share what songs you like ;)

Hey guys - back on a paid plan, and I got a lot catching up to do with this group lol but I hope to get it back on par with the other genre-specific groups here. I will begin to start posting regularly here again, and am up to any ideas on how to make this a successful group. :D I especially think I can be a good influence to us prog people stuck inside during the coronavirus, and could lighten up our days. So it has extra meaning now!

Do you roll your eyes when someone calls a 6-to-8 minute track a "long" song?


How about when people can't imagine a great metal track breaking into some polka spontaneously and then going back?


Well, there's a good chance you belong in this group. :D


This group is for Prog Rock/Metal artists, Prog Rock/Metal Fans, and/or anyone who just wants to explore the genre


And no, don't worry, no entrance tests lolol - everyone's invited!


Here we can showcase our talents, talk about the latest prog music outside Kompoz, look for like-minded musicians to team up with - again, just like everyone's invited, everything is welcome that has the word 'prog' in it! 


I (@MikeJM) will continue to update and be active in this group, so if you have any feedback or ideas please contact me! 


Now somebody cue the 12-minute long Guitar and Keyboard trading solos section!
