Default Any Prog Metal Fan on DIYA?

I'm a HUGE prog metal fan and was wondering if DIYA knew of any audiophile-quality recordings. I found a thread of head-fi, but thought I'd see what y'all had to say about the subject

You mean like Via, Satriani, John5 or Dream Theater? Yeah, I like that stuff.
Not sure which ones are audiophile quality recordings though. Be good to hear opinions on the subject.

Any bands you like in particular?
I build, therefore I am.

I'm a pretty big Dream Theater fan, but I have not heard of the others you mentioned. Will definitely be checking them out though. I've heard Dream Theater has some pretty well recorded albums, Images and Words being one that I've heard mentioned on several occasions. As far as my favorites, I'd have to go with Between the Buried and Me, Agalloch, Protest the Hero, and Opeth(of course). I like the heavier stuff, haha.

I haven't listened to much of the genre, but I am a big fan of Dream Theater. Mike Portnoy is an absolute beast on the kit - I'm in love with the guy.

All of the albums I have by them are very well recorded - the guys put a lot of hard work into those albums.

Saw em live a couple of years ago too.

Portnoy is a monster! But I've begun to lose some respect for him with the recent drama. I envy you greatly. My friend got to see them at Prog Nation, I was so jealous.

I'm, a prog fan, and I like some prog-metal

Dream theater recordings are pretty mediocre, as are Tool and A Perfect Circle and Primus and Opeth. Varying levels of the "wall of Sound" concept. Haven't actually heard any "good" prog metal recordings. That's not to say I don't like the music.

I love Prog Metal. One of my absolute favorite bands is Fates Warning. Absolutely incredible live. I also just saw Dream Theater live (they opened for Iron Maiden on their last tour.) Also, check out Nightwish. I really like them. During the holidays I was listening to Blind Guardian. Good stuff.

Tool has made some nice recordings. Lateralus stands out IMO; 10 000 days is amazing. Adam Jones is said to be obsessive about production quality.
Fighting the program since 1976.
