Wow.... that's some damn nice tunes there
May have been mentioned, but if your looking for crazy but structured music, the fire is Planet X's new album, Quantum. Not exactly metal-but but plenty of crunchy riffs and jazzy double bass. Very tasteful and technical. I think Derek Sherinian and Virgil Donati showed Rudess and Portnoy up this time around.
Just ordered Paradise Lost... *salivating in anticipation*
Just saw your reply now.
When I mentioned they were from the past, I meant they made their career in the mid/late 80's through early 90's! Then they were quiet for a long, long time!!
And I know all about the band getting together and your site/forum/etc...I'm registered there!!
I think you would like Twisted Into Form. Close to Spiral Architect as you can get. Anyways sounds like they got there name from Forbidden (old school tech metal).
welcome mate! And yeah there's been plenty of discussion about TIF...
it is my 1st post in this forum..
I like everything about Spiral Architect and tech metal
I'm from chile, south america
so, in this thread I found new music about other tech metal's bands, and they're so cool!
listen my own page on myspace: www.myspace.com/zydra it's the page about my music band
not sure if they've been mentioned here before, so forgive me if they have... but i've recently found a band from Houston, Texas called Scale the Summit. Instrumental, but similar style: http://www.myspace.com/scalethesummit
Pretty decent in my book.
I've heard a small amount of their stuff, seems pretty cool.
NEVER forget about Cynic.
the guitarist from behold... the arctopus has a project which is pretty unique, i must say. he does all the vocals/instrumentation. it's called direwolf.
definitely not for the non-technical crowd. vocals are a little peculiar at times... but i like it
...then again, i could've looked a couple of threads down and realized that this has been mentioned already. haha... nevermind then!
Some or all of these have been said, but I was going to suggest:
Twised Into Form
Theory In Practice
Blotted Science/anything with Ron Jarzombek
If you dig really technical stuff, then you might like some technical Death Metal; Necrophagist, Psycroptic and Spawn of Possession, among others.
There is also a band called "Between The Buried And Me". Their newest album "Colors" is supposed to be excellent. Their earlier stuff I'm not a big fan of, but they are certainly worth checking out.
Anything with Ron Jarzombek rules...
Hey Sorakrist I checked you guys out.
Really good stuff. Riffs/sections that are quite reminiscent of Spiral Architect, and Dream Theater, but nothing you could call a rip-off. Female vocals as well, which actually work quite well most of the time. Good stuff. Standout songs are "9" and "Das Experiment", in my opinion. I think that if you "need bands like Spiral Architect" then these guys would be worth checking out. Not as technical, but I don't think that works against them at all.
here's the URL again in case you can't be arsed scrolling up: www.myspace.com/zydra
Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum. I was looking for some information on spiral architect and i ended up over here
Nice to see that members of the band are taking part in forum life
Just checked Scale The Summit<== really good music
i can add Dysrhythmia (i think some guys from behold the arctopus play over there) good tech instrumental music pretty original compositions worth listening.
I think Aghora was mentioned over here already
MCM - Ritual Factory thats really good as well. instrumental music not metal but tech melodic and has a specific atmosphere I just love how the drummer plays with hi hat
Martyr - tech prog metal with good growl
but seeing Aghora mentioned.... i checked them out briefly via lastfm and they didn't appear to be all that technical. is there a certain album/song(s) i should check out?
Immortal Bliss sounds technical enough to me.
Protest the Hero. Really really sounds like Spiral Architect
