Never listened to Hammers of Misfortune, though I know the name. I'm actually really not a fan of progressive stuff, but I'll definitely give it a shot. Thanks for the recommendation.
They're not proggy in like a Dream Theater time-signature wankery sense, but more like they just have longer than average songs and they had kind of a theatrical element on their first album, The Bastard. Like progressive the same way Queen could be considered progressive.
The Locust Years and The Bastard are their really "progressive" albums and are both awesome, while The August Engine and 17th Street just have bunch of really great songs. The Grain from the latter album won't leave your skull for weeks.
