Progressive Rock DLC Request Thread

JukeBoxHeroJukeBoxHero Headliner
edited November 2011 in Your Ultimate Setlist
I was a bit hesitant about making this thread, but now it's clear to me that we need better representation as fans of our beloved music.

Request, Recommend, and most importantly discuss what progressive rock would go well in Rock Band. I'm not forgetting progressive metal or death metal, bring that to the table too. I want us to make a signifying thread that if Harmonix see, they can take imput from this thread and see what they can do for our wonderful sub genre.

I will keeping this thread constantly updated. I won't drop off for awhile without notice unless I indicate so long as we keep it alive.

The one rule that must stated is don't flame each other music tastes. I made this for the sole reason of having a clean purposeful thread for a genre that I feel need to be represented clearly on here. I once again beg you guys not to have a flame fest in this thread, I don't want it to get locked.

I will post our most wanted albums, song packs, and single songs on a the third and fourth post. I will be providing a last fm station that will hopefully work on the second post, I will be updating the radio as we find the songs we want on Rock Band more defined.

This will be the ending note, to all who didn't read, this a DLC request thread for Progressive Rock!

Edit:If you notice any errors, let me know.

    A lot of newer porcupine tree (Lightbulb Sun and newer) could work rather well, especially a few tracks off of deadwing are more rocky than proggy though. Specifically, I think Shallow, Halo, Blackest Eyes, and those sort of songs would be fine on rock band.

    So it's hard to say.

    As far as Dream Theater goes, I think the entire images and words album would be awesome. (they could make "wait for sleep" an extended intro for "learning to live") Epic.

    The most accessible Opeth album would be Damnation. #2 will probably be Ghost Reveries or Watershed. Too much death metal for your average joe with Blackwater Park, Still Life, or Deliverance. Though I would love them.
  • TakeABowTakeABow Road Warrior

    Jethro Tull, Genesis, Rush, King Crimson, Muse (some call them prog).

    Dream Theater gets a bit of attention as prog as well.

    Damnation would be awesome, but so would be Master's Apprentice from Deliverance, and so would be the song "deliverance"!!




    the drummer might have "some" work to do with the single pedal. :p

    Opeth
    DT
    Porcupine Tree
    Fates Warning ...are all musts. Opeth would make me as giddy as a f****t eating a corn dog.

    What about some...

    Pain of Salvation
    Redemption
    Wolverine
    Dark Suns
    Riverside?

    Oh, and I want more Coheed & Cambria (if you think they're emo, urgeigh).

    As far as metal goes......with out a double kick pedal add on forget it! If they added the double kick option, I'd like to see some Pantera, Poison the Well, Lamb of God, Mudvayne, Protest the Hero, etc......
  • edited May 2008
    The phrasing is a bit awkward, but the 'progressive' should carry over to 'metal' and 'death metal'... so the bands Staleflesh just mentioned don't really apply in the context of this thread, sorry.

    Pain of Salvation (going to see them live along with Opeth in august, woo hoo) and Wolverine are excellent additions, though.

    And I have to agree on Coheed & Cambria falling under the prog category. I don't quite understand why they get the emo label (which is a vague thing anyway).

    PoS is great live (they're not a P.o.S.). I saw them a few years ago (before Be came out) and their set was musically flawless, though Daniel forgets his lyrics on almost every song.

    Something tells me we might want to re-name the thread so it's clearer we're talking about prog metal specifically... before we're bombarded with even more Metallica requests.

    Hey man, I didn't exactly mean all metal when I posted this. I meant progressive metal(Dream Theater) and progressive death metal(Opeth). Metallica and the other bands you mentioned don't fit into those categories, they are not bad bands but you do get my point don't you.

    Also I will be updating the album section with Opeth suggestions. Remember guys I mean songs from the bands too(not just their name mention). I'll do an example lets take Rush's YYZ or Yes's Mood For A Day are excellent songs. However, neither really contain vocals so it wouldn't work in Rock Band. Anyway thanks for posting and keeping this thread alive guys instead of letting it sink too far.

    Also, how would you change the thread title? I rather make it clear this for progressive rock , progressive metal, and progressive death metal.

    You know what they need is to add keyboards for the vocalist.

    Then we can do Fatal Tragedy and Dance of Eternity.
