I saw them live in 1976 when they opened for Aerosmith. No video can do proper justice to what I witnessed. Truly an epic event.

Surprised the Rush haters aren't here yet.

Been a bit of a slow summer for good new music.  The new Tessract from late May is still my album of the year.

I discovered the band Divinity Compromised's debut last month though it's been out for a while.  Great heavy symphonic progressive metal with a lot of old school influence, especially in some of the vocals.

And for something on the crazy side, have a bit of dubstep with some mostly instrumental progressive metal with an EP from the keyboardist from the band Textures.

Signals and prior for me. Never bought an album after that.

Working man never gets any love. Alex's solo kicks all kinds of ass. @2:10 mark.

Might as well throw in one that I think gets little love. This version is one of my favorite solos by Alex.

It's funny because just about any band those people love has been influenced by Rush and probably are fans too.

A-yup. I had Beyond the Lighted Stage on the other day when my buddy came over and when he saw Trent Reznor and Billy Corgan talking about Rush his words were "Ok, dude. Now I know how you feel about the Beatles." 

Not a fan of the Beatles catalog, but their influence on other musicians is undeniable and so I have the utmost respect for them.

Everybody has their own definition of metal, but I definitely think Rush belongs in a broad definition of it.  If you're thinking it's hard rock I've found that in America a lot of bands that aren't towards the death metal stereotype shy away from the metal label towards hard rock while there's European stuff like Evanescence that gets labeled metal rather than hard rock. I think it's still due to a bit of the Hair Metal to Nirvana hangover in America.  Here's Wiki's summation of Rush's style.

Rush's music style has changed over the years, beginning with blues-inspired heavy metal on their first album, then encompassing hard rock, progressive rock, and a period with heavy use of synthesizers.

I agree Rush belongs in a broad definition of "metal", but "heavy metal" is more specific. I may be simple-minded, but when I think "heavy metal" I think of groups like Mastodon.

For an upcoming project, I need around 15-25 metal/hard rock instrumentals. I have a few from when i was much (much!)  more immersed in that scene than i currently am (Metallica/Rush) but I was wondering if you gurus who live/breathe this musical form can suggest some decent and recent ones. I don't really mind from where they come as long as they're sans vocalizations. Sincerely thanks in advance for any more-serious-than-not suggestions (this is Fark after all).

See- this is where shiat gets muddy: I consider Mastodon to be a progressive metal band, not HEAVY metal. To me, that term connotes a very narrow aesthetic/sound, i.e. Priest, Maiden, etc. Mastodon have WAY too many trippy off-time things going on. They're not straight-forward "heavy metal".

Others have made great suggestions, but don't forget that some well known bands that have vocalists often release instrumental versions of all the songs as a bonus CD or the like.  My top two there are Dream Theater and Nightwish.  One other pure instrumental band to recommend is Valence's album Sleepwalker.

Fair point.

To me (and from what I can tell, many people) Heavy Metal is a style of metal like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Metal Church, Saxon, Savatage, etc.  I think of it as just one of many subgenres...black metal, heavy metal, pagan metal, thrash metal, prog metal, death metal, power metal, symphonic metal, etc etc etc.

So, to me Mastodon is not "heavy metal" whatsoever.  Shiat, I don't even think they call themselves a metal band.  I like them enough, though.
