  1. Toool is not really a prog ban nor is Queensryche or Faiths Warning. I would do some research first and extend my knowledge of prog music before publishing a list of so so bands that in my opinion are not up to par with Yes, Genesis, Van Der Graaf Generator, Gentle Giant, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Le Orme, PFM, Goblin, Sagrado Corazao da Terra, O Terco, Ange to name a few. Open you ears..
