Hidden Prog Gems

Just unknown awesome prog artists

Prog rock/Alt rock band from Norway who creates deep, space and complex music. Their new album is out in two days, and it sounds like it'll be their magnum opus.
2Henry Fool
Men Singing

Jazz fusion/Prog rock band founded by No-Man multi-instrumentist Tim Bowness.
"Everyone in Sweden": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7Xe0xCSGbI

This Italian prog/post-rock band is an essential for modern prog fans, and focuses on ambiance.
"In my Fears": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUMY1tPSyRg
4North Atlantic Oscillation
Grappling Hooks

This scottish band blends progressive rock with electronica in a very creative and original way.
"Ceiling Poem": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WoC4S0CuSo
5Gavin Harrison and O5ric
The Man Who Sold Himself

Jazz prog project by Porcupine Tree drummer Gavin Harrison and multi-instrumentist O5ric.
"TMWSH": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjB0hBoidsQ
6Lunatic Soul
Lunatic Soul

Mariusz Duda is best-known for being the bassist and vocalist for Polish band Riverside, but he also has his own solo career under this pseudonym. The project is an ecclectic mix of prog, ambiant, psychedelic and experimental.
"Summerland": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZh4PBvSyco
7Mostly Autumn
The Spirit of Autumn Past

Progressive/folk band heavily influenced by Renaissance and Genesis.
"The Spirirt of Autumn Past": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pE-Wavc51A
The Kiss of Spirit and Flesh

Leafblade is a project by Anathema member Daniel Cavanagh. Although it sounds a lot like Anathema, it has some nice ideas and stand-out tracks.
"Bethlehem": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hqRsP2YzI4

A classic but often forgotten German 70s prog trio. Their style is driven by heavy keyboards and Genesis-like vocals.
"Spartacus": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fu8mWEnz4cI
A Tab in the Ocean

Yet another forgotten 70s band, whose music is oriented toward more psychedelic influences.
"A Tab in the Ocean": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCa4BVZIME4

An awesome French Canadian progressive band, whose song "La Maudite Machine" was a huge hit in Quebec in the 70s.
"La Maudite Machine": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBP4RH9Nx-0
Les Porches

Another classic jazz-prog band from Quebec.
"Les Porches de Notre-Dame": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBQZNnzhh6s
13Fiori- Seguin
Deux Cents Nuits A L'Heure

Side project from Harmonium singer Serge Fiori, that should love fans of the band itself.
"Deux Cents Nuits A L'Heure:": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OqSFC0pxAU

Possibly the weirdest band on this list. Basically, it's instrumental avant-garde jazz/prog/metal characterized by syncopated and off-key sax/guitar duology and interesting rythms.
"Fuck You And Your Hipster Tie" (Live): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfMIN_-EXV0
15The Pineapple Thief
All the Wars

They are already pretty much known in the prog world, but they still deserve more attention in my opinion. They are a very creative progressive/alternative band who developped its own sound after being called Porcupine Tree imitators for years.
"Give It Back": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wz1mDufyKs
