Evergrey

Sweden has produced many fine progressive metal bands over the years, and Evergrey has been one of the leaders of the scene, ever since their debut in 1998. The musical core has always been a careful balance of progressive and power metal, with melody and aggression fused so that neither overpowers the other. Classiness, maturity, and professionalism are the hallmarks of Evergrey. Arguably the earlier albums have fared better than their later works, though 2014's Hymns For The Broken seems to have turned that around.
