Recommend me some Space Rock, Prog Rock, and Heavy Metal bands?

(This started off as a reply to this thread but I feel warrants its own thread and discussion.)

So, here's my plan for the immediate future. I want to release either an EP or an album that has elements of Prog Rock, Space Rock, Heavy Metal, Disco, Synthwave, etc.

See, I recently relistened to Justice's "Woman" album after years of not listening to it in full. I used to feel mostly lukewarm towards the album in the past save for a couple of songs ("Randy" and "Safe and Sound"). This time around, there were moments my jaw dropped, moments where I became misty-eyed, and the whole experience of the album was that of pure euphoria that none of Justice's other albums have ever made me feel in all the years I've listened to those musical masterpieces.

So instead of regurgitating what Justice have done on "Woman", I want to explore the Greats of the 70s and 80s. I'm looking into exploring those older Prog Rock, Space Rock, and Heavy Metal albums of the 70s and 80s. Some bands I'm currently drawn to are Scorpions (especially their performance with the Berlin Philharmonic my friend Lance showed me, which was just sublime), Pink Floyd, Dio, etc.

Even though I'm excellent at producing EDM, I'm getting to the point where I'm becoming temporarily exhausted of the genre. Last time this happened, I became heavy into Lofi and HipHop production, lol.

So what other bands can you recommend from the 70s and 80s and even modern times that touch upon those genres?

Bonus Question - Do you have any tips and tricks as to songform for those genres? I tried Google and Google let me down, but I know many of the oldheads here can help me out. Cheers. :mrgreen:
