I am not typically one for prog rock/metal. BUT...two bands I strongly feel are well worth their weight are
Coheed and Cambria (ie: In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth:3, Welcome Home)
Fair to Midland (ie: Musical Chairs, Dance of the Manatee)

Killer songwriting and just all around good stuff. A metallic-flavored break from the aforementioned genres, IMHO.

Does a new Testament cd count as modern metal? Lol. I just picked up their latest and its awesome. There is also a great cover of Queen's Dragon Attack on well as Iron Maiden's Powerslave. Skolnick is one of the best lead guitarist out there.

Even though I play what most would consider Modern Metal, I have to agree.
Too many bands trying to out do Meshuggah, bad song form, etc.

I went less extreme vocally on our new release, and brought in my influences from several older metal eras and I'm much more pleased with how it came out.

I'm actually very happy with a lot of djent music coming out recently. The production values are immaculate, and the players precision is incredible. But then again, I also like meshuggah so...

Man, I'm old!
I always thought I'd be the coolest Dad in the world because I'd love my kids music. But my girls are only 5 and 1 and I haven't been able to stomach much of the music of the last 15 years! I can only imagine the CRAP that will be out there 10 years from now!
For me it's ALWAYS been about the song.
Perfect sounding recordings of amazing musicians doesn't mean s*&t if the song sucks. For me, the last Van Halen album is a perfect example. Eddie is on fire, the band is rocking, but Roth's voice is gone and the songs suck. I love old VH with Roth, but I thought the album sucked and I didn't buy it. I'll take Van Halen III with Cherone over ADKOT any day!
