    Origin is one. Gorgasm is up there. A little bland and not the MOST technical but enough. Too many pinched harmonics in my opinion... Necrophagist. But that's too much for me too. I like an occasional power chord amidst the sweeping.

    I don't think the stuff Gorguts does is nearly as hard to do as some of the other bands mentioned in the thread. I have a handfull of their tabs & I don't think it's all that crazy, at least from a guitarists standpoint.

    It's crazy that so many bands are being mentioned, yet no one has yet to speak of Spiral Architecht... They're better than any band mention, that I've heard at least, only they don't have death grunts. Still technical as fuck.

    I'm into the guitar driven shit. I hate most technical bands with a bunch of platered together riffs that don't make sense. I think Spastic Ink & Blotted Science are awesome, thanks to Ron Jarzombek. Once again though, no death grunts.

    Anyone who likes tech death would probably like the band Skepticism.




















    ... j/k

    try Theory in Practice, they are pretty technical, sort of remind me of Meshuggah(sp?) in some of the riffs.

    Spiral Architect are about as tech as they come.

    Origin is pretty tech, but if you played Mary had a Little Lamb as that speed it would sound technical as well.

    I think Suffocation are pretty clearly not the most insane tech band out there.

    Yeah, the majority of their albums aren't even close, and I was still new to tech death when I heard them, but I thought Pierced From Within and Souls To Deny were borderline. I actually haven't listened to Suffocation at all since then, because I don't like them very much.

    Brain Drill is definitely the most insanely technical dm band out there but not necessarily the best technical dm band out there.

    Spiral Architect are pretty damn technical.

    I relistened to those two Suffocation albums and they're definitely not technical, I don't know what I was thinking.

    God I hate Pysopus or whatever the fuck their name is they are located right by me to so I never hear people shut up about them.

    I don't think anyone has mentioned old Cryptopsy or Old Cephalic Carnage yet their worth checking out.
