About Playlist

Although many people turn to metal to be beaten over the head by its sonic heaviness and emotional intensity, it’s also a genre that attracts musical virtuosos. Fans and artists have been noodling with the parallels between metal and classical music since the days of King Crimson and Rainbow, and as prog-rock really took off in the '80s thanks to Rush, the landscape for cross-pollination was ripe as metal continued to get broader, more intricate, and more forward-thinking. First it was bands like Queensrÿche and Voivod who pushed power metal and thrash, respectively, in theatrical new directions. But by the end of the '80s, bands like Fates Warning and Dream Theater entered the fray to carve out an entire new genre that became fittingly tagged as progressive metal.

In the '90s, the genre exploded in every direction. There was proggy black metal (Enslaved), proggy death metal (Opeth), proggy extreme metal (Meshuggah), proggy psych-metal (Porcupine Tree), and even proggier prog metal (Symphony X). By the 2000s it had infiltrated the music of Tool and Mastodon, and a whole new generation of prog-metal bands like Periphery and Animals As Leaders formed the sub-genre djent in the image of Meshuggah. Although there haven’t been any prog-metal bands from this era who’ve broke as big as the genre’s foundational acts, like most genres of music, there’s more of it being made now than ever before. This playlist contains all the proper tributes to prog-metal’s godparents while also offering a comprehensive look at how the sound has evolved throughout its 40-year history.
