    Obviously I'm looking for progressive rock, but I've never heard anyone else like them. Any ideas?

    Tool, King Crimson, and Mars Volta aren't necessarily the same, but are in a similar genre.

    If you do Mars Volta, go for Deloused in the Comatorium first, it's amazing.

    dream theater and the mars volta are completely different.... tool and king crimson aren't really the same.

    dream theater is pretty unique in the realm of prog metal

    Also, try sampling random bands off the Inside Out Music label.

    I'm listening to Rush right now. :eek3: I wouldn't say they sound the same, but way closer than what has already been suggested.

    This band is probably the most similar to DT, due to sharing most of its members with the addition of one of the greatest bassists ever, Tony Levin
