Progressive Metal And The Emptiness That Was Dream Theater Left

Ever since Dream Theater disbanded, yes disbanded, because the band no longer exists, I've been looking for some new, fresh, innovative progressive metal.


I've been listening to the regulars:

Animals as Leaders
Counter - World Experience
Scale The Summit

And the oldies but goodies from Buckethead to Transatlantic from  Behold...The Arctopus to Redemption (currently the best metal band playing right now imo).

But I'm longing for more.  Dream Theater leaves a big, gaping hole.  They had such an ennormous sound that any one or three bands can't fill it back up again.

Do you have any suggestions?
