‘Welcome to our third annual top progressive metal albums! This year’s list may have been our hardest to compile as we easily found many albums that we absolutely loved but didn’t quite make our top 50. As usual, this year had a lot of great albums from some of the most well-known bands in the genre (Symphony X, Subsignal, Vanden Plas, BTBAM, Periphery, etc.) but also a ton of obscurities that range all over the progressive metal spectrum. Our apologies if your favorite album is somehow missing on this list but we think there’s something here for all fans of one of today’s best musical genres.
Just like the last couple of years, this list is in ALPHABETICAL order so please don’t ask us to rank these albums! We’ve also got sound clips via YouTube, Amazon and some of our albums have full streaming from the band’s own BandCamp sites. Please feel free to give us your feedback in the comments and happy listening!‘
