I left out a lot of popular bands, that you know and that i know, because for me those 4 are the closest that i could find that have similarity with Rush. So there's no option in my poll for others, which would need some research for those who don't know all these bands.

By the way, there's a catch in the possible options, i won't vote for now just let the mystery for a while. And i made a error, it's Gorczyca

Exactly. I listen to a lot of music but there isn't anyone like them. That's why they've been my favorite for over 20 years now. Rush has raised the musical bar too damn high for others to reach.

What is your favorite Rush "almost like band" if you want. I know there's no band like Rush. I can give you some links for those 4 bands.

https://www.youtube....h?v=o-4uqN1VP6s

A very good album, not so popular

https://www.youtube....h?v=qI6_Ku81p5I

the most popular, they have many albums

https://www.youtube....h?v=Sfxx9Hn7hZQ

this one you should know if your a real Rush fans

http://www.progarchi...bum.asp?id=4859

this one is new for me

All of those bands have a influence of Rush in their music, for one specific era of the band.

Ok and then what, you all made your point there's no band like Rush, Rush is perfect and why waste our time to listen to something else, spend money on other bands, we just have to listen to the same albums over and over

No. Listen to whatever you like. I love Green Day. That doesn't mean they're anything like Rush. Hell, they're almost the opposite.

This thread is about who else is like Rush. My response was, "No one."  That doesn't mean no one else should be playing music.

Relax, dude.

I like Tiles a lot.  With Terry Brown producing, Hugh Syme doing artwork, and Lifeson contributing some guitar, they certainly seem to be trying to milk that Rush connection.

This thread was not about that, it's about your favorite bands that have similarity with Rush. All 4 bands have been compared to Rush not by me.

Thanks, first answer to the question. Yes there's a involvement of Alex in the songs "Sacred and Mundande" from the album "fly paper"

Yes this band has been compared to Rush many times. A power trio with progressive rock influence in their hard-rock heavy metal style. The critics towards them like Rush has not always been good for this band. And now they are in the Candian Hall of Fame

I've always thought of Tool as one of the closest comparisons to Rush. More so than the bands listed here. Rush really have their own thing going though, no band is THAT similar

Good point.  I've never heard of those bands, but Tool...well, no band can induce a trance in me like Tool can. An absolutely hypnotic band whose music speaks to me much like Rush's does.

I enjoy the music of Tool with all the experimentation and atmosphere, but i don't think of Rush when i am listening to their music a part from a guitar solo in some place. The tempo is much slower than Rush, but i must agree that this is nice hypnotic music
