Music Genre that involves an unlimited ammount of rythms and melodies in the same song, very long duration of them, different time patterns in a same chorus for example... Thousands of notes per minute and infinite influence of jazz, blues and rock. The term "prog" is usually asociated to long songs with tempo changes and glorious notes. Some bands like Dream Theater and Opeth still make the world listen to this kind of metal, more acceptable for neutral audience.

The progressive metal bands are usually conformed by very high-leveled musicians, oftenly born in a music family environment and influenced by prog rock bands like Yes, Queen, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Emerson lake and Palmer, and others...
