What happens now? .......... MikeJM unfortunately closed his account today. Even if he were to come back, it would not be as same profile. What happens now to this group? Anyone know anything about why he closed his account? Very sad thing to happen :(

Looking for any Interesting projects to join. I play Drums any Keyboards, prefer older type key sound liks Mellotron, Moog, Arp, solina etz. Looking forward to make some music with you Progheadz out there

And . . . why not? . . . a combining of two worlds tonight! Listen to this fan-made Dream Theater cover, except it's in the style of Opeth. Talk about amazing!!! I want to hear the full song. :D

Who said that PROG is dead? (Part II) While I am still super excited to see the PROG gods Dream Theater LIVE (only 8 days now!) I thought I'd take a break from obsessively listening to them and continue with my postings of what's new in prog during the last few years. This one caught me by surprise. I've always been kind of a "peripheral" fan of Opeth, meaning that I tremendously respect them as one of the best of modern prog, but never really had either the time or the drive to go through their full discography and really get into them. But I tell you, I might have to go on that elusive marathon now! Their fairly recent single, "Heart in Hand," has definitely captured my interest. What does everyone else think? PROG still going strong in 2019!

Peter Hammill "Accident" ........ I'm on a serious streak of listening to this guy. The lead singer and writer for the prog band Van Der Graf Generator, his later solo stuff tippled into goth. For me, a bridge from prog to alt - he was once featured on the radio by Johnny Lydon (Sex Pistols, Public Image Ltd) who admired his work. This track has always been a fave of mine. Dramatic with all sorts of stuff backwards, watch out for that 6/4 break which firmly lands it into prog.

How is your week going my fellow PROG lovers? :D I am hyped, because in just under 7 weeks - on a personal note - I am going to get to see a PROG band that you ALL know . . . Most prog concerts I've been to have been more like the photo xd238 shared two posts back than these huge events lol. And while those also rocked very seriously... ... I am finally getting to see Dream Theater live on Monday, October 28th, in Riverside, California! :D They will be playing new songs and old classics for part 1, and for part 2 they will be playing the entirety of their famous rock opera, Scenes From A Memory!!! A crowd of 1,600 people . . . don't have the best seats but I will still be in center stage instead of up high or off to the sides. lol So first off, any ideas for expectations? Other than the fact it's going to ROCK?! Secondly, should I take any photos/video to share with this group? I can't wait!

"In The Cage", attic......... I just went through my posts to this group and realized *every single post* I made was somehow related to King Crimson. Well here is an attempt to correct that... in a post that harkens back to my screwed up teenage years, and shows you can never really leave...

Who said that PROG is dead? This will be my regular posting of what is new in PROG ... and man do we have a debut post for YOU to get excited over! When Tool released their last album, I was in elementary school. And after long last, we finally have a new song!!! Now there is some debate in the prog community of which specific sub genre Tool fits into ... but who cares? This is 10 1/2 minutes of artsy, experimental metal goodness, and I am so excited! What does everyone else think about this track?

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!
