Prog, yours to discover, part 1

Here are some albums from my 5s to my 4s with less than 50 votes. No classic band/albums and no jazz related. Not in particular order.
1Anekdoten
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 eclectic music that doesn't stay in place for long. Reminds of Cardiacs at some point.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lW5d1wOxJJg
3Dogma
Twin Sunrise


1995, got a Genesis vibe, especially with the guitar work.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nc2buC0AJoE
4Jordsjo
Nattfiolen


2019, reminiscent of Anglagard and Sinkadus. Somewhere in between, in fact.

5Not a Good Sign
Not a Good Sign


2013, technical and dark. Heartfelt music. Good musicianship

Spotify
6La Coscienza Di Zeno
La Notte Anche di Giorno


2015, a good mix of straightforward music and symphonics.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f60FsFk9_TY&list=PLJC5bOVBufwBSefFjKqiHw_LhEvuWQcCb
7Ingranaggi Della Valle
Warm Spaced Blue


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

Spotify
8Anubis
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.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7ziDfI-viY&list=PL3F41E0FE0EA61A1C
9Comedy of Errors
Disobey


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

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ARfQR9zLk8
10Novalis
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.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zr5nY5HnIus

Spotify (remastered)
11Procession (IT)
Frontiera


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

12Phideaux
Snowtorch


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

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEYaUULwG24&list=OLAK5uy_lytsCN914wbdaL_ybhQqbrAJvlyC5bi-8
13A.C.T.
Imaginary Friends


2001, Energetic music close to AOR, but definitely prog, with a Queen flavour.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AaIctz5Oj2k&list=OLAK5uy_ngX0EwYuMDgbP_3fa7F_SCmpcHLOnYotg
14Finisterre
In Limine


1996, influenced by Genesis. Symphonic close to classical.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnJ34p9ty4w
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.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNrFGy4G_n4&list=OLAK5uy_mzu3PmegnRm42QgB4V5SQFKXOXt4JE9I0
16Gosta Berlings Saga
Detta Har Hant


2009, instrumental, close to post rock.

Spotify
17Landberk
One Man Tells Another


1994, Dark, melodic, pastoral or powerful. Always melancholic.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbGCtjQa068&list=OLAK5uy_lW0GkWW9IZPHx19NeurzU9GQtLqptosoc
23Et Cetera (Qc)
Et Cetera

In Time

26Universal Totem Orchestra

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOgr0zowR5M
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...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKOK_SxoguI&list=PLxq0NvHXVd_CRwNGsz0F09x_M90_dw99_
29Airbag
The Greatest Show On Earth


2013, Pink Floyd wannabees, but with this album, band managed to find their own identity, always Floydish though.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FW09rW9AWhw
30Ellesmere (ITA)
Wyrd


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