I disagree, Vax. I don't believe it's an oxymoron so much as the quality equivalent of Hen's Teeth or Honest Politicians. It's very difficult to come by, extremely rare, and easy to do badly. LTE and (to a somewhat lesser extent) Dream Theater are good examples of Prog Metal.

And only to a limited degree.
