Default Progressive Rock recommendations

I am a progressive rock fan and recently discovered two new bands that sound somewhat like Pink Floyd. Do you guys know of any other bands that are worth listening to with this sound?

I found these two: What do you think of them?

Airbag




Riverside

Some of the earlier stuff from Porcupine Tree had an obvious Floyd influence. Later they moved more into a prog metal direction.

Thanks for the tip on embedding the video, also I like Liquid Tension Experiment they reminded me of Styx need to listen to more of their stuff.

One of the best songs ever written, imho. There's a pretty good concert movie by that name, too.

Check out Ozric Tentacles, particularly Strangeitude and The Hidden Step. If you want to go way way back, there's always Yes, Nektar, Uriah Heep, and Utopia. And then there's the the Rolling Stone list.

I think you'd like Soen.



And maybe Katatonia:



A couple others you might dig are Graveyard and Witchcraft, but they're in a different vein, still pretty old school sounding.

Progressive? Other than maybe more well-known bands like Dream Theater and Rush, I'll try to think of a couple who aren't or weren't exactly mainstream.

"Operation Mindcrime", the whole album, by Queensryche. They don't sound like Pink Floyd (almost no one does or can), but they're very insightful with their lyrics, much like PF, and musically and vocally solid.

One tune from the album:


A live tune:


Another suggestion, Nightwish. Their songs tend to be more complex and poetic than the average rock band. They just do their own thing. Again, they don't sound like PF, but same as before: that's a tough order to fill. They're considered symphonic metal, but I'd put them in a progressive category, too. There are other more complex songs, like "Poet and the Pendulum", and "Greatest Show on Earth", but these are more digestable in one bite.

Original singer, live, more straightforward song.


Self-explanatory? The rock/metal version of the famous tune.


Live, different songs, current singer:

I saw Tosin Abasi at a Generation Axe concert in Selina Kansas a few months back. Dude can play the HELL out of that guitar thing he has. It sounded just like the album. Didn't miss a note that I could tell.
