    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.

    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!!

    That isn't avant-garde. Most people don't know the meaning of that word.

    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.
