They call it new prog, worth checking out...

Isn't this the guy that remastered XTCs back catalog?
Yep, one and the same. Never heard his remixes though, think he had a go at Black Sea. Mostly remixed prog classics Yes, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and glam like Roxy Music.

He's done all the XTC remasters. He seems to be quite respected for not brickwalling and treating remasters with respect. I like it!

They get called a lot of different genres, but I would say in the way they are very technically skilled players utilizing tightly composed playing to produce challenging music, you could make a good case for The Dillinger Escape Plan being in the tradition of prog, even if most fans of strictly 70s style prog would call them horribly abrasive chaotic noise.

EDIT: I have no idea how they sound now. I meanly know the early stuff, like Calculating Infinity from like 20 years ago.

I wouldn’t say that. They’re definitely pushing the bounds of hardcore, but it doesn’t “feel” particularly proggy to me.
