    I've been listening to a lot of Steven Wilson and both old and new Opeth.

    Any suggestions for other bands that do it? I'm kinda done with Dream Theater though.

    Thanks!

    This mega prog thread I started and try to update has TONS of new and old prog:

    https://www.thegearpage.net/board/i...-music-discussion-festivals-concerts.1997382/

    Obvious choices similar to what you have listed are:

    Soen (new album just released)
    Riverside
    Sisare
    Pineapple Thief

    But there are loads of other ones in that thread for you.

    Ever listened to Wobbler from Norway?

    Also if you Listen to Steven I imagine you also listen to Porcupine Tree? The Pineapple Thief are also worth a listen.

    That kind of depends on what Steve Wilson you listen to.
    If you are listening to the more rock oriented stuff like what he did when Chris Maitland was doing drums, that would be quite different than the more pop/distorted guitar sound of when Gavin Harrison was doing drums.
    If you prefer the more rock/psychedelic stuff with Mr Maitland, I suggest checking out Planet P , the first album. Toney Carey also has a solo album that is much like Planet P.

    If you lean more toward NoMan and Blackfield, David Gilmours On An Island and Pink Floyds Division Bell might appeal to you.

    Also, if you like the earlier Porc Tree stuff perhaps David Gilmours first two solo albums might be something to check out.

    Steven Wilson was involved in Blackfield, kind of the poppier side of prog, very good stuff. Some 6 degrees of separation stuff to Porcupine Tree and Dream Theater, but OSI, Flying Colors, Neil Morse Band, Chroma Key.

    Try Transatlantic, Spock's Beard, Flower Kings. Not as heavy as DT/Opeth but quite good.

    Pineapple Thief and The Mute Gods are cool too.

    I've been listening to The Sea Within quite a bit lately:


    I'm also going to shamelessly self-promote my latest album, which is more instrumental rock than prog, but a couple tunes like this one could pass:
