I found Frantic Bleep last week and they are awesome! A great mixture of different musical stuff with something of their own. Something like avantgarde with a faint hint of thrash and death metal. They are from Norway of course, where else could a band as good as this come from (Except Sweden)?

Yeah well apparently Madder Mortem's singer Agnete M. Kirkevaag has been a session vocalist for Frantic Bleep and MM:s ex-bass player also played in FP You're right, they do sound much like Madder Mortem. I can feel some Ihsahn and Arcturus vibes in their music too.

Arena and Änglagård. Not new bands, but amazing!
I just bought the Arena DVD "Smoke & Mirrors" and I'm deeply impressed. The most enthralling two hours I spend in my life
For those who don't know Arena is an Art-rock/progrock/AOR-band from England.
Änglagård are progrock, too, but have mostly instrumental songs. Really musical stuff

Änglagĺrd is a fine band. be sure to check also Anekdoten and Landberk, quite similar.

It's funny, a lot of people name Änglagĺrd and Anektoden in the same breath, but I think they aren't really comparable.
I have a few Anekdoten albums but I don't think they are that good.
But Landberk is really great, more pop but with great melodies.

Well, I can understand why people name Landberk and Anekdoten together with Änglagård, since they both name it as a big influence

I went to high school with the guitarist/composer/founder of Frantic Bleep. Same thing with four of the members of Madder Mortem. Just wanna see if that gives me any cred at all.

Windmills By The Ocean. If you like Isis you will probably like them ( memembers from Isis were in this ) as far as I know they only have a self titled release, but it is amazing.

^^ Yeah, Neurosis is really cool, good thing they are still releasing good albums

THe best band I've heared in a long time is Maudlin of the Well (that later changed into Kayo Dot), a nice band with doom/death meta, Jazz, prog-rock, etc influences

kayo dot is realy good, although i think they tend to get overdone.. a song or two at a time is just fantastic, but after that i tend to get a bit bored

^^ You got that right Kev.

So, there are a few bands/albums I've discovered recently:

Hurt - Vol.1 : Just wow, I can't believe this is their debut album cause the sound of the band is so polished, it has some obvious Tool/APC influences, I can hear some dredg too and some grunge influences

Across Tundras - Dark Songs of the Prairie : This band mixes a sludge Cult of Luna/Isis/Pelican sound with some Psychodelic rock elements, it's really cool but I still have to give it a few more spins

Bubu - Anabelas : This is an Argentinian 1970's band and as you can guess it's prog rock in the veins of King Crimson (Red era) and Magma

I found some new and nice bands too..
Few to name SikTh, Boris and Sunn O))).

And the I found Metsatöll (Estonian folkmetal). It was kinda surprise,
because I'm not so keen on folkmetal. Also Drudkh was something new to me.

And few ambient-discoverys to name; Troum (German dark ambient)
and The 4th Floor from Finland.
