|Porcupine Tree - In Absentia|
|^^^ Definitely agreed.|
Check Kalmah for some pretty good melodeath stuff as well as some At The Gates.
If you haven't heard Kamelot, check the Black Halo or Epica, those are both solid releases by them.
Also, Symphony X and Into Eternity are solid Prog Metal bands.
|With the sufjan stevens you may enjoy the new dustin kensrue album or some maudlin of the well stuff. |
if you haven't heard his album "Chicago" get that, it's friggin incredible.
|Yes to 5.|
|Novembre; Swallow the Sun; Melechesh; Be'Lakor; The Absence; Symphony X; Evergrey...|
|1,2,3,4,6,7 are all some of my favorite albums ever. 1 and 2 being in my top 3|
I would suggest Amorphis, and check out Shadow Gallery for a band relatively similar to DT (minus the wankery)
|Symphony X, get their new album|
