I’ll give a shout-out to Ayreon. It’s not as heavy or serious as some other Prog Metal acts, but the grand concept albums, all-star lineups and careful construction and production are praiseworthy. If you can let yourself not care that it gets a bit corny at times, it’s all really well done.
I picked up a few albums by Caligula’s Horse and I like what I have heard so far.
Yeah Tool is a pretty big band and defiantly should be mentioned in this thread. I love their song Lateralus but outside of that I cant really get into them. If you like them though I’d recommend The Contortionist. These songs are Tool-esq to my ears.
Does anyone else listen to Between the Buried Me? Is it just me, or do their 2020 remasters sound substantially worse than the originals? The mixes sound flat and boring in comparison.
I don’t know, maybe it’s the 6XX I’m using. I’ll try some others cans later
