    Yeah well...QUIET YOU...!

    Sepia Dreamer are progressive instrumental death metal, I'm sure that's more to your taste.

    No, I think if they got a vocalist they did recently after their debut.

    Hey all,
    I'm doing music extension at school next year, which basically requires me to write a 3000 word essay about..well something to do with music.
    So I was thinking that it would be best if I did it on avante-garde metal, because for one thing i'm very interested in it, and also because there's many areas to explore like minimalism, the influence of nationalism, genre-fusion (jazz metal, folk metal, etc), extended techniques (like the weird stuff gorguts do with guitars) etc..
    I'm already thinking of exploring the music of bands like Gorguts, Drudkh, Emperor, Cynic, Kayo Dot, Ulver..and that's all i can think of now.

    Can anyone reccomend me a few bands that may be worth studying or listening to that seem to fit my purposes? Should I even persue this topic?
    Thanks heaps.

    Try Gorod, they are 100 percent Jazz fusion.

    Summoning, Graveland, combine more primitive insturments.

    Meshuggah, Converge, or pretty much anything with wierd unusual timings.

    Finntroll, etc. Anything considered different

    good luck
