Avant Garde Metal?

Can anyone recommend me some avant garde metal? Also, any bands that go into the extreme realms of metal?

Thanks for taking your time to reply.

Some of these are probably not Avant-Garde in the truest sense, but;

the 3 album by Ihsahn (frontman from Emperor) has created some pretty sick avant-garde metal, the guitars, Ihsahn's unique vocal work, and the keyboards has made is stuff awesome!!

Gorguts' Obscura album is a pretty weird and avant-garde version of technical death metal.

I feel this at least deserves a mention, never heard anything quite like these guys. Might not be completely avant-garde but hey...

The lack of Giant Squid here depresses me. The Ichthyologist is an AMAZING avant garde album.
