If you are tired of metal, listen to this. camel - the snow goose. I don't know how to put it in words but this is just great. The spirit is just great, there dept in that, (good) variation, like in life.  Way better than the majority of metal if you ask me.

If I'm tired of metal and wanna go in this direction, I'd listen to Yes.  Camel and Rush (for instance) are still too typical to take me a safe distance away. To me Camel sounds silly most of the time and the arrangements are... well, nothing out of the ordinary. But they try hard with the time signatures and motifs. Honorable mention band.

Nice one. Camel are fantastic. I prefer Mirage and Moonmadness to Snowgoose but all three represent their best work.

ELP, Yes, Gentle Giant, Van Der Graaf Generator, Crimson (esp their most recent album!), Genesis and Camel are all truly amazing.

I wasn't particularly tired of listening to metal but as an appreciator of music as a whole, Camel, Yes, Genesis, Jethro Tull, Deep Purple and the list goes on... Is a progressive genre where on some particular albums you may find metallic values.

Off the top of my head, examples : Camel's Mirage, Yes' Relayer and Firth of Fifth from Genesis' Selling England by the Pound ( steve hackett's progressions particularly but this could be debated as to whether it holds metallic elements ) Good classical/rock nonetheless if it serves your interests.

There is much to be discovered whether metal or not.
