As for obscure bands, Zebra is may recomendation. If you dont live on long island or in louisiana chances are you have never heard of them. The lead singer (Randy Jackson) is an amazing guitarist that rocks. He actualy opened the show for Jon Anderson at his last show at B.B. Kings Blues club in Manhattan and I believe hes doing it again.


Zebra aren't really that obscure. Their first album went gold. How many prog or obscure bands can say that? Anyway, they were a good band but I've never owned any of their stuff. If you think Zebra is obscure what would you think if I said Spock's Beard, Flower Kings, IZZ, Anglagard, Gentle Giant, Camel...the list goes on and on and those are just the ones that pop out of my sleepy head at the moment.

OK relatively obscure means not too obscure so I'll say Nektar.

I'd like to recommend Oceansize, I have two of thier discs, Effloresce and thier latest , Everyone Into Position, both very good. a lot of bands come to mind in thier sound Rush, Porcupine Tree, Dream Theater, Radiohead, very heavy in spots, no growling vocals though, very enjoyable quickly becoming a favorite, if you get a chance check them out.
