Modern Prog Rock?

So I've been on a prog rock kick recently, and was looking for some more modern prog rock bands. I've got some good ones, but I'm interested in some more suggestions.

Some I have been listening to:
Karnivool
Coheed And Cambria
Oceansize
Dead Letter Circus
Fall Of Troy

Also, I don't want this thread to turn into an argument of the semantics of what is and isn't prog, so try to stay off of that topic.

I wasn't huge on the couple tracks that I have heard from this album, but it does deserve a full listen, so I'll have to check it out.

They slipped my mind when I made the initial list. I agree, they are amazing

Thanks for the suggestions so far, keep 'em coming!

Daedalus
Abydos
Taal
Echoly

Jeavestone

OSI
Blackfield
Mystery (Among the Living is the best album they have)
Amaran's Plight
Satellite

No signature because censored blah blah blah.

If you don't mind listening to a band that doesn't sing in English this would be a good one.

WARNING!!! This riff you are about to enjoy is super hot WARNING!!!
