    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.

    These guys are awesome, thanks!
    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!
