They're kind of a gag band, but totally amazing technical grind none the less
Highly recommend this album, streamable on bandcamp.
Does The Alan Parsons Project count as progressive rock? I've seen it labeled as such.
Talking about parody metal, Nanowar of Steel are a force to be reckoned with:
Yeah my original intention wast to create a metal psychedelic prog rock kind of thread, tracks that have a darker or heavier tone to them. Metal and hard rock would be more "correct" broadly speaking.
"Progressive rock (shortened as prog; sometimes called art rock, classical rock or symphonic rock) is a broad genre of rock music that developed in the United Kingdom and United States throughout the mid to late 1960s. Initially termed "progressive pop", the style was an outgrowth of psychedelic bands who abandoned standard pop traditions in favour of instrumentation and compositional techniques more frequently associated with jazz, folk, or classical music. Additional elements contributed to its "progressive" label: lyrics were more poetic, technology was harnessed for new sounds, music approached the condition of "art", and the studio, rather than the stage, became the focus of musical activity, which often involved creating music for listening, not dancing."
" Heavy metal (or simply metal) is a genre of rock music that developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s, largely in the United Kingdom. With roots in blues rock, psychedelic rock, and acid rock, the bands that created heavy metal developed a thick, massive sound, characterized by highly amplified distortion, extended guitar solos, emphatic beats, and overall loudness. "
"Hard rock is a loosely defined subgenre of rock music that began in the mid-1960s, with the garage, psychedelic and blues rock movements. It is typified by heavy use of aggressive vocals, distorted electric guitars, bass guitar, drums, and often accompanied with keyboards."
"Stoner rock, also known as stoner metal or stoner doom, is a rock music fusion genre that combines elements of heavy metal and/or doom metal with psychedelic rock and acid rock. The name references cannabis consumption. The term desert rock is often used interchangeably with the term "stoner rock" to describe this genre; however, not all stoner rock bands would fall under the descriptor of "desert rock"
On psychedelic rock: "The genre bridged the transition from early blues and folk-based rock to progressive rock and hard rock, and as a result contributed to the development of sub-genres such as heavy metal. Since the late 1970s, it has been revived in various forms of neo-psychedelia."
Then you have progressive heavy metal for example and drawing the line between subgenres becomes pointless.
Maybe my favorite metal album of all time. This took me to another place when when I first heard it back in middle school. Now it’s on in the car everyday when I pick the kids up from school, by request. This song...damn.
When death metal was about atmosphere too, not just sheer brutality.
