The Different Types of Progressive Metal Discussion
Progressive metal is a tough genre to control because of the genre being so...well, progressive, and bands with even the slightest progressive qualities end up being labeled that genre. So I decided to divide progressive metal into 15 different types, similar to Xephyr's Viking Metal experiment. I think it would be hard to fit so many YouTube videos into one post, so I made a playlist that can be found here: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3fWYgo16iAq7NVoBvg2XAy
