REC Me Some Australian Rock and Prog

Like some, I initially entered the Australian rock market with Silverchair (#1 below). Unlike many on Sputnik, I was a big fan of Frogstomp. My next foray was Grinspoon (#2 below). Fast forward a few years to Wolfmother (#3 below), and I dug both their initial album and Cosmic Egg a lot. About 4 years ago or so, I finally found Karnivool (#4). This led me into bands like Like Thieves (#5) and Dead Letter Circus (#6), which were excellent and progressive. I then realized that I had missed out on Memento (#7), a relatively unheard Australian/US band during the Nu-Metal years. Recently, through Sputnik, I found Lucid Planet (#8), Breaking Orbit (#9), and Twelve Foot Ninja (#10), which are all spectacular. Also became aware of Caligula's Horse, Chaos Divine, Cog, Sydonia, and Temple of Thieves. Please let me know if you have any excellent rock/prog recs!

I know they were derivative of grunge and Tool, but dug them a lot anyways.
Guide to Better Living

A great mix of metal, punk, and other genres.
Cosmic Egg

Another great mix of Led Zep, Black Sabbath, with stoner rock thrown in to boot.

Not a better couple of albums than Themata and Sound Awake.
5Like Thieves
The Wolves At Winter's Edge

Both this EP and "Autumn's Twilight" are pretty awesome!
6Dead Letter Circus
The Catalyst Fire

Also dig "This is the Warning"

A great progressive nu-metal album.
