    Its soo crazy that (I dont think) I've seen anyone mention "Watchtower":loco:
    (well sort of in the 1st post . . . nevermind :err:).

    And its VERY cool that I see a lot of Bands mentioned that I like,
    I am very glad many know of them all (and some I'll have to find!).
    >>> WARNING- Just a Fan, don't work for the Station ;) <<<
    I can also recommend to check out my friends at PrOgulus.com.
    Its a Prog Rock/Metal Internet Station that has just about every "Sub-
    Genre" of Progressive Rock, and I know I just made about 15 more
    addicted fans to be :kickass:
    LOTS of "Math Metal" and Tech/Prog Metal! . . .
    You can always ask the fine "PrOguli" at the Live Chat-Board on the
    site about bands, recommendations and so-on. And also see their
    Forums. Its a totally FREE site and very hands on Request controls and
    an un-godly amount of Prog. And we have a fair share of Math Metal
    fans too! Also, 90% of the CD's at PrOgulus are "Donated' by the
    listeners so we are a very close-nit group.

    As far as bands that maybe too extreme or just havent made it there
    yet, heres some old and new Bands (Tech/Thrash, Math/Death Metal etc.
    either melodic or "cookie"/scream vocals):
    1. Realm

    15. Darkane
    16. Deathrow -"Deception Ignored"

    @ MAVIII 10x, Cloudkicker sounds quite nice :)

    Pestilence had an album called "Spheres" released in 1993 where they moved towards a more prog & tech death metal (complex time signatures, guitar synth, fretless bass etc...)

    Also, Obscura's new album called "Cosmogenesis" (featuring 2 ex-Necrophagist members + the ex-Pestilence bass player from the Spheres album on 6-string fretless bass) is a quite nice album. They play a prog-tech death with some melodic and fusion touches.

    Check out the jazz-fusion band "Counterworld Experience". They've got 2 instrumental albums out now. Both amazing - in a compositional & production sense.

    don't know if anyone still checks these boards, but....

    i've seen it on here before, but Tesseract's One is my favorite album right now (though this changes constantly). not too thrilled about their new singer though. i have the new EP and only gave it a once through so far.... hopefully it grows on me, though.

    anyone here hear of Unexpect? not exactly similar, but if you love a rather esoteric, niche sound, they've got it. check out the song "Unsolved Ideas of a Distorted Guest"

    and i know there are quite a few Ihsahn fans here (or were). anyone like Leprous? don't know if this is true, but i've heard it's basically Ihsahn's backing band. Bilateral is a great album. worth a checking out, i'd say.

    Hey TL,

    Yeah TesseracT's "ONE" was on my Best of 2011 releases (with the 2nd singer Daniel Tomkins, the latest is their 3rd). Daniel now sings with "Haji's Kitchen"


    Unexpect and Leprous are awesome! Known about them for quite some time now. I listed the latest Leprous, Unexpect albums (and TesseracT) along with the staff at Metal Music Archives.c0m as some of the best Metal Albums of 2011.

    If you like Unexpect and other Avant-Garde musics, checkout my playlist:
    http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCC3D71E6F62D855A

    As far as Tech/Math Metal, I just updated my LIST above. Working on a Playlist for that type of Metal as well, hope to be done by the Months end.

    :D

    Theory In Practice does have some very SERIOUS tunes. But their last release disappointed me big time.

    I'm really losing my mind over how good Exivious is. Top level. 2009 album rocks my world, totally unique. Their demos are even crazier in terms of tech-death. I'm speechless.

    Guys check out VIOLENT DIRGE from Poland. They released their last album in 1995, called Craving. Fantastic Cynic-esque tech death. It's not nearly as complex but the essence is there. Cool groove, enough technicality to keep us players interested in the chops, very cutting edge production, free flowing solos... It's got a lot going. Definitely check them out. Production is surprisingly good, years ahead of their European peers. It's like listening to a rawer Focus. Very very highly recommended. Polish bands are fucking incredible man, they are so fresh, heavy and "out there".

    Agree 110% !!

    I was lucky enough to see Spiral Architect when they played ProgPower 2.0 in Atlanta and of course the ZH guys, who are now long time friends.
