I love this group's music:

Their songs are all free to download, though there seem to be some that haven't been uploaded yet.

My $.02.  Prog rock is the greatest thing to ever happen to rock music and is truly one of the great art forms...

care to comment?  

What the derp is "progressive rock"?  Musical genres make absolutely no sense.  I mean, I have yet to figure out what "industrial" is, and I'm not going to even bother figuring out what the derp "house" is supposed to be.

Prog rock is pretty much "Look, I'm a smartass" rock.  Which makes it awesome.Cheesy

Ah, hence progressive.

On the subject of musical genres, I hate how "indie" is taken to be some sort of style of music.  Indie music is music that is produced either independently, or by independent record labels.

Well it's become a style of music because at the time most indie labels produced this poppy alternative-rock sound.  Thus, indie.

There's another derpy music genre name, alternative.  "Yeah, I listen to alternative."  Alternative to what?  That's the kind of thing one of those artsy people who make a big deal about being "non-conformist" would say they listen to.

Wikipedia actually has a pretty good definition of progressive rock. 

Yes, early Genesis, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, ELP, Jethro Tull, Rush, Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Coheed And Cambria and to an extent Muse are considered progressive rock bands.  It's all artsy, conceptual, long-winded, and often very difficult to play. 

Basically everything the early punks hated.... which makes it great, of course. 

Well now Punks at least have a sense of recognition for such great music.Cheesy

It used to be non-conformist, now it is conformist.Tongue

Name still applies though, it pretty much means mainstream now (well alternative to the real mainstream, which is post-grunge, pop, etc.)

Now, what is the deal with this whole "post-" thing?

When I think of "Industrial" music, I think of songs that sound "industrial," i.e. sounds of clanging metal or industrial machinery, or just songs that bring to mind a dirty, industrial wasteland.  That music is awesome.  Most other so-called "Industrial" music, that fits the description of what Earth said, sucks.

So, like Throbbing Gristle?

Haven't heard their music, but I'll check them out.

Is there a genre of music called communist metal, or something like that?  Because, I'd think that it would sound very industrial.  I mean, if faggotry like National Socialist black metal exists...Roll Eyes

     Metallica doesn't seem to be a serious band anymore. To be fair, I only listened to a combined total of four songs off those two albums. All Nightmare Long was the only one of those songs that was actually any good, faux badass title aside.

That seems to happen to groups that have been around for a while.  The quality of their music tends to decay.  That is, if they started out with good music.  Lady GaGa and other pop stars will always have bad music, because their music has never been good.

I think major record labels have something to do with it.
