'''Porcupine Tree''' is a ProgressiveRock group formed by Music/StevenWilson. They are known to combine elements of rock, {{Ambient}}, PsychedelicRock, {{Krautrock}}, electronica and (on their most recent albums) HeavyMetal into their music. Many critics have hailed them as the modern day Music/PinkFloyd when their popularity increased in TheNineties, but Steven Wilson has expressed his dissatisfaction with this label, preferring that Porcupine Tree be known as "the old Porcupine Tree" or "the new Porcupine Tree".
