New Generation of Progressive Rock?

Judging by a lot of the posts, many in the Chordie Universe enjoy what used to be called "Progressive Rock". My 27-year-old son has challenged me to stop living in the 70's, so I've been looking for new Prog Rock bands that have a similar style to the Pink Floyd / Genesis / Rush / Yes / ELP / Wishbone Ash / etc. groups that I've enjoyed for decades. Some discoveries have been awful, but this group "Porcupine Tree" is quite good! Does anyone else listen to them?

"Dark Matter"  -  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQIKODPk4rU

These guys are very creative, and I'm especially impressed by their drummer (Galvin Harrison) who also does a fair bit of jazz performance with some other groups. It's also interesting that they're all using Paul Reed Smith guitars, instead of the either-or / Gibson-Fender line up that's so usual.

Excluding Prog Metal and some of the other variations (too aggressive for me), who else is out there that fits the Prog Rock description?

That's good that you have someone pushing you to come of age.  I do prefer old music to most new stuff.  I guess thats where I'll remain.

Re: New Generation of Progressive Rock?

After listening to the nice growls coming out of the PRS guitars that Porcupine Tree uses, I got to try one Saturday at a music store about an hour's drive away. It was the SE 245, which is on the low end of their scale @ $650 CDN. However, I was very impressed with the build quality, sound, and feel of the guitar. It was the first time I'd had a PRS in my hands, and it's easy to see why they're making a solid name for themselves.

Hey TF give this a try.  sound is a little rough as its a board  recording but was hastily done when they got a surprise gig.  http://circadianfrequency.bandcamp.com/  If might take a coupple listens, but I think its pretty cool. (not to mention the singer and lead guitar are a triumph buddy of mine)


Mal - Well, lady, I must say, you're my kinda stupid.
Mal - Jayne, your mouth is talking. You might wanna look to that
Kaylee - No power in the verse can stop me. BOOK-  you're going to burn in a very special level of hell. A level they reserve for child molesters and people who talk at the theatre.

Ya there less expensive ones are nice,I heard that Carlos Santana had alot of persuassion on getting them too build some lower priced one's for people that could not afford the high priced ones's.

Re: New Generation of Progressive Rock?

Thanks for the link, Beamer ...

I found a few YouTube videos of Circadian Frequency, and although they're more aggressive than my usual taste, there's no arguing with their creativity or skill.

Much obliged!

Re: New Generation of Progressive Rock?

A couple of newer bands out of the 70's to check out as well are Airbag from the Norway, they have a couple of albums out now and are on the soon to be releasing a new Lp and Porcupine Tree.  They're a bit all over the map but worth checking out as well!

Airbag used to be The Pink Floyd Experience, a cover band that was REALLY good!

Here's a link to them doing Pink Floyd's live version of The Embryo as how The Floyd did it in 1970-1971
