I hadn't heard of Sleep Terror, but having checked out a YouTube video, I suggest you look up Frank Zappa, who was probably the founding father of that sort of thing in 60s (rock guitar sounds with jazz thinking).

More contemporary figures (all more on the jazz side than the metal side, but still with an edge) worth checking out are:

John Zorn (sax player)

John Scofield - here's an early jazz-funk piece:

Billy Jenkins - my personal hero, has been playing avant garde and free jazz guitar with a punk edge for over 30 years.
He's currently on a tongue-in-cheek blues kick:

Wait till around 1.46 into the video for a typical example of his guitar "style"....
