Prog, yours to discover, pt 1

Here are some albums from my 5s to my 4s with less than 50 votes. No classic band/albums and no heavy or jazz related. No particular order.
From Within

year;1999, space prog inspired by King Crimson. Big use of keys and mellotron.
2Karmic Juggernaut
The Dreams That Stuff Are Made Of

2018, technical, bombastic, eclectic music that doesn't stay in place for long. Reminds of Cardiacs at some point. Odd time signatures. Fusion of styles. Singer has a voice similar to Jon Anderson, plus a vibrato.
Twin Sunrise

1995, got a Genesis vibe, especially with the guitar work a la Hackett. It wouldn't be out of place in Duke era.

2019, set between acoustic Anglagard and Sinkadus. Just in between. Mellotron, flute and sweet guitar. Similar to Il Volo (ITA) in the guitar and keys interplay.
5Not a Good Sign
Not a Good Sign

2013, technical and dark. Spacey or tight, similar to King Crimson. Heartfelt music. Good musicianship.

6La Coscienza Di Zeno
La Notte Anche di Giorno

2015, a good mix of straightforward music and symphonics.
7Ingranaggi Della Valle
Warm Spaced Blue

2016, Dark, reminds of Anglagard, but more spacey.

A Tower Of Silence

2011, clean, emotive, heartfelt symphonic neo prog. Every albums are based in concept albums. It's either punchy or atmospheric stuff. They throw in a nod and a wink to Pink Floyd once in a while, and even approach a mellow Riverside.
9Comedy of Errors

2011, neo prog reminiscent of Marillion in Fish era. Great compositions.
Banished Bridge

1973, German band who sings in English for this one. Atmospheric tendancies with organ and analog synths, so yeah, symphonic to the bones. Production and cover art could be better, but the music is great.

Spotify (remastered)
11Procession (IT)

1972, Band composed with two guitarists and part time mellotron. Great melodies.

2011, Band is like the soft side of Ayreon. Melodic and warm.
Imaginary Friends

2001, Energetic music close to AOR, but definitely prog, with a Barock Project mixed with a Queen flavour.
In Limine

1996, influenced by Genesis. Symphonic close to classical.
15After Crying
Megalazottak es Megszomoritottak

1992, Hungrian band using lots of instruments to develop a prog sometimes close to ELP, and sometimes close to classical. Decidedly symphonic. The suite is superior to the rest.
16Gosta Berlings Saga
Detta Har Hant

2009, instrumental, close to post rock.

One Man Tells Another

1994, Dark, melodic, pastoral or powerful. Always melancholic.
18La Curva Di Lesmo
La Curva Di Lesmo

2015, little pop, big on symphonic prog

19Asia Minor
Between Flesh And Divine

1980, Camel number two.
20Barock Project
Coffee In Neukolln

2012, Tight symphonic prog similar to A.C.T., flirting with classical. Huge wink to Apocalypse In 9/8 from Genesis in the last track.

Magnified As Giants

2021, Rhythmic, emotional psych folk with interesting prog patterns.
Cowboy Poems Free

2000, Inspired by a more smooth Gentle Giant.
23Et Cetera (Qc)
Et Cetera

1976, A lost GG album that GG haven't done. Gentle Giant II
24Magic Pie
Circus of Life

2007, reminiscent of Spock's Beard' golden age.
25Solar Project
In Time

1997, Theatrical and conceptual music about time. Floydian guitar. Reminds me of Seru Giran in different aspects.
26Universal Totem Orchestra
Mathematical Mother

2016, Zeuhl mixed with symphonics

27Quarteto 1111
Onde, Quando, Como, Porquê, Cantamos Pessoas Vivas

1975 Symphonic prog. Big on emotions. Vocals suit the music well.
28Fabio Zuffanti
La Quarta Vittima

2014, symphonic music tinted with mellotron and jazzy parts. Not supposed to figure in that list on that matter, oh well...
The Greatest Show On Earth

2013, Pink Floyd supporters, but with this album, band managed to find their own identity, always Floydish but this time with a personal touch.
30Ellesmere (ITA)

2020, modern, mellow symphonic prog. Doesn't sound like Yes despite that Roger Dean cover art. Quite original. It features Anglagard's drummer.
